SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On August 3, 2009, the Department of Commerce (“the Department”) published a notice announcing the opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on granular polytetrafluoroethylene (“PTFE”) resin from Italy for the period August 1, 2008 through July 31, 2009. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review, 74 FR 38397 (August 3, 2009). On August 28, 2009, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), the Department received a timely request from E.I. DuPont de Nemours & Company to conduct an administrative review of Solvay Solexis, S.p.A.

On September 22, 2009, the Department published a notice of initiation of an antidumping duty administrative review of Solvay Solexis, S.p.A.'s exports from Italy. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 74 FR 48224 (September 22, 2009). On December 10, 2009, E.I. DuPont de Nemours & Company, the petitioner, withdrew its request for review.

Rescission 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 that requested the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. As noted above, E.I. DuPont Nemours & Company, the sole party requesting the review, withdrew its request on December 10, 2009, which was before the 90-day deadline. Therefore, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department is rescinding the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on granular PTFE resin from Italy for the period August 1, 2008 to July 31, 2009.

Assessment

The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. Since the review of Solvay S.p.A. is being rescinded, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of this rescission notice in the Federal Register.

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 Order

This notice serves as a final reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (“APO”) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written notification of the return/destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.

This notice is issued and published in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
