The Department initiated an administrative review of the countervailing duty order on lightweight thermal paper from the PRC covering the period January 1, 2011, through December 31, 2011, based on a request by Appleton Papers, Inc. (“Petitioner”). See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 77 FR 77017 (December 31, 2012).
The review covers the following companies: Guangdong Guanhao High-Tech Co., Ltd.; Henan Province Jianghe Paper Co., Ltd.; Jianghe Paper Co., Ltd.; JHT Paper; New Pride Co., Ltd.; and Shenzhen Taizhou Industrial Development Co., Ltd. On April 1, 2013, Petitioner withdrew its request for an administrative review of these companies.
Rescission of Review
Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party that requested the review withdraws its request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. In this case, Petitioner withdrew its request within the 90-day deadline and no other parties requested an administrative review of the countervailing duty order. Therefore, we are rescinding the administrative review of lightweight thermal paper from the PRC covering the period January 1, 2011, through December 31, 2011.
The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”) to assess countervailing duties on all entries of lightweight thermal paper from the PRC during the POR at rates equal to the cash deposit of 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 to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice.
This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of countervailing duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period.
This notice serves as a final reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (“APO”) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under an APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written notification of the return or 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 that is subject to sanction.
This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
