Background

On September 15, 1997, we published in the Federal Register an antidumping duty order on crawfish from the PRC. See Notice of Amendment to Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order: Freshwater Crawfish Tail Meat From the People's Republic of China, 62 FR 48218 (September 15, 1997). On September 1, 2009, we published in the Federal Register a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on crawfish from the PRC. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Start Printed Page 13498Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 74 FR 45179 (September 1, 2009). On September 30, 2009, pursuant to section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.213(b), the petitioner, the Crawfish Processors Alliance, requested an administrative review of the order with respect to, among others, Yancheng Hi-King, an exporter of crawfish from the PRC. On October 26, 2009, in accordance with section 751(a) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), we published a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the order. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 74 FR 54956 (October 26, 2009).

Rescission of Review in Part

In accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an administrative review, “in whole or in part, if a party that requested a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of notice of initiation of the requested review.” We received a notice of withdrawal from the petitioner with respect to the review requested of Yancheng Hi-King within the 90-day time limit. See letter from the petitioner dated January 25, 2010. Because we received no other requests for review of Yancheng Hi-King, we are rescinding the review of the order with respect to Yancheng Hi-King. This rescission is in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection 15 days after publication of this notice.

Notification to Importer

This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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 Department's presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

This notice is published in accordance with section 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
