Background

On January 22, 2014, the Department initiated the AD and CVD investigations on certain solar products from the PRC.[1] Start Printed Page 44403On June 9, 2014, SolarWorld Industries America, Inc., i.e., Petitioner, timely requested alignment of the deadline for the final CVD determination with the deadline for the final determination in the companion AD investigation of certain solar products from the PRC,[2] in accordance with section 705(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), 19 CFR 351.210(b)(4)(i), and 351.210(i). On June 10, 2014, the Department published the preliminary affirmative CVD determination pertaining to certain solar products from the PRC.[3]

Because the AD and CVD investigations were initiated simultaneously and involve the same class or kind of merchandise from the same country, we are aligning the deadline for the final CVD determination of certain solar products from the PRC with the deadline for the determination in the companion AD investigation of certain solar products from the PRC, in accordance with section 705(a)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(4)(i). The final CVD determination will be issued on the same date as the final AD determination, which is currently scheduled to be issued on or about December 16, 2014.

This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 705(a)(1) of the Act.
