On July 1, 2011, the Department of Commerce (Department) published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty (AD) order on polyethylene terephthalate film, sheet and strip from India covering the period July 1, 2010, through June 30, 2011. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review, 76 FR 38609, 38610 (July 1, 2010). The Department received a timely request for an AD administrative review from Petitioners  for five companies: Ester Industries Limited, Garware Polyester Ltd., Jindal Poly Films Limited of India, Polyplex Corporation Ltd., and SRF Limited. The Department also received timely requests for an AD administrative review from Vacmet India Ltd. (Vacmet) and Polypacks Industries of India (Polypacks). On August 26, 2011, the Department published a notice of initiation of administrative review with respect to Ester Industries Limited, Garware Polyester Ltd., Jindal Poly Films Limited of India, Polyplex Corporation Ltd., SRF Limited, Vacmet and Polypacks. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Start Printed Page 58245Administrative Reviews and Deferral of Initiation of Administrative Review, 76 FR 53404 (August 26, 2011). On August 23, 2011, Vacmet and Polypacks withdrew their requests for an AD administrative review.
Rescission, In Part
Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party that requested the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of notice of initiation of the requested review. Vacmet's and Polypacks' requests were submitted within the 90-day period and, thus, are timely. Because Vacmet's and Polypacks' withdrawals of request for an AD administrative review are timely and because no other party requested a review of Vacmet and Polypacks, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are rescinding this AD administrative review with respect to Vacmet and Polypacks.
The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. Vacmet and Polypacks shall be assessed antidumping duties 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 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 doubled antidumping duties.
Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders
This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. 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 violation which is subject to sanction.
This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).Start Signature
