On July 1, 2010, the Department of Commerce (Department) published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the countervailing duty order on polyethylene terephthalate film, sheet and strip from India covering the period January 1, 2009, through December 31, 2009. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request an Administrative Review, 75 FR 38074 (July 1, 2010). The Department received a request for review from two companies, Ester Industries Limited (Ester) and SRF Limited (SRF). On August 31, 2010, the Department published a notice of initiation of administrative review with respect to Ester and SRF. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Deferral of Initiation of Administrative Review, 75 FR 53274 (August 31, 2010). On October 1, 2010, SRF withdrew its request for an administrative review.
Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party who requested the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of notice of initiation of the requested review. SRF's request was submitted within the 90-day period and, thus, is timely. Because SRF's withdrawal of request for review is timely and because no other party requested a review of SRF, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are rescinding this review with respect to SRF.

The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess countervailing duties on all appropriate entries. SRF shall be assessed countervailing duties at rates equal to the cash deposit of the estimated countervailing 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 directly to CBP within 15 days of publication of this notice.
