On June 28, 2013, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of an antidumping duty administrative review of the order on certain circular welded carbon steel pipes and tubes from Taiwan covering the period May 1, 2012, through April 30, 2013.
The review covers six companies: Chung Hung Steel Corp., Far East Machinery Co., Ltd., Kao Hsing Start Printed Page 49256Chang Iron & Steel Corp., Shin Yang Steel Co., Ltd., Tension Steel Industries Co., Ltd., and Yieh Phui Enterprise Co., Ltd. Petitioner requested a review of all six companies. Shin Yang Steel Co., Ltd. requested a review of itself.
On July 25, 2013, Petitioner withdrew its request for an administrative review for all of the companies except Shin Yang Steel Co., Ltd.
The applicable regulation, 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), states that if a party that requested an administrative review withdraws the request within 90 days of the publication of the notice of initiation of the review, the Secretary will rescind the review. Petitioner withdrew its review request with respect to five companies within the 90-day deadline and, therefore, the withdrawal is timely.
Accordingly, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are rescinding this review with respect to the following five companies: (1) Chung Hung Steel Corp.; (2) Far East Machinery Co., Ltd.; (3) Kao Hsing Chang Iron & Steel Corp.; (4) Tension Steel Industries Co., Ltd.; and (5) Yieh Phui Enterprise Co., Ltd. This review will continue with respect to Shin Yang Steel Co., Ltd.
The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For the companies for which this review is rescinded, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from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 directly to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice.
Notification to Importers
This notice serves as a final reminder to importers for whom this review is being rescinded of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant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 the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.
Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders
This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (APOs) of their responsibility concerning the disposition 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).
