The Department's regulations provide that the Department will rescind an administrative review if the party that requested the review withdraws its request for review within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation. See 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). Changshu, the only party to request a review of its particular sales of LWS, timely withdrew its request of the review within the 90-day deadline. Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department is rescinding this administrative review of the countervailing duty order with respect to Changshu. This administrative review will continue with respect to Zibo Aifudi.
The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”) to assess countervailing duties on all appropriate entries. For Changshu, countervailing duties shall be assessed, if applicable, at rates equal to the cash deposit or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption. The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice.Start Printed Page 63723
