Background

On August 1, 2013, the Department initiated an administrative review of the countervailing duty order on cylinders from the PRC for the period October 18, 2011, through December 31, 2012,[1] based on a request by Beijing Tianhai Industry Co., Ltd. (BTIC) for a review of itself.[2] BTIC withdrew its request for an administrative review on August 23, 2013, and no other party requested a review of BTIC.[3]

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 publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. In this case, BTIC withdrew its request within the 90-day deadline, and no other parties requested an administrative review of the Start Printed Page 55060countervailing duty order. Therefore, we are rescinding the administrative review of cylinders from the PRC covering the period October 18, 2011, through December 31, 2012, in its entirety, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).

Assessment

The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess countervailing duties on all entries of cylinders from the PRC. Countervailing duties shall be assessed 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 the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register, if appropriate.

Timely written notification of the return/destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested.
