SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On March 2, 2009, the Department published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain tissue paper products from the PRC. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 74 FR 9077 (March 2, 2009). In response, the petitioner timely requested an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain tissue paper products from the PRC for entries of the subject merchandise during the period March 1, 2008, through February 28, 2009, for Sunlake (i.e., an exporter of the subject merchandise). Therefore, on April 21, 2009, the Department initiated a review of Sunlake. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 74 FR 19042 (April 27, 2009).

In a letter dated June 30, 2009, the petitioner withdrew its request for review of Sunlake and requested that the Department rescind the review with respect to it. No other party has requested a review of Sunlake. This administrative review will continue with respect to Max Fortune Industrial Limited and Max Fortune (FETDE) Paper Products Co., Ltd. (collectively referred to as “Max Fortune”) and Seaman Paper Asia Company Ltd.

Rescission, in Part, of Administrative Review

Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party who requested the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. Accordingly, the petitioner timely withdrew its request for review of Sunlake within the 90-day period and no other party requested a review of Sunlake's entries. Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are rescinding this administrative review with respect to Sunlake.

Assessment

The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For the company for which this review has been rescinded, antidumping duties shall be assessed, if applicable, at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for Start Printed Page 54031consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice.

Notification to Importers

This notice serves as a reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (APO) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return or destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.

This notice is published in accordance with section 777(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
