SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On May 1, 2013, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the countervailing duty (CVD) order on aluminum extrusions from the People's Republic of China (PRC).[1] Pursuant to requests from interested parties, the Department initiated an administrative review with respect to 153 companies for the period January 1, 2012, through December 31, 2012.[2] The deadline for a party to withdraw a request for review was September 26, 2013.[3]

Withdrawal of Review Requests

Between August 13, 2013, and September 26, 2013, several interested parties filed with the Department submissions to withdraw review requests.[4] The companies for which a request for an administrative review was withdrawn and for which there is no outstanding review request are listed in the attachment to this notice.

Partial Rescission of the 2012 Administrative Review

Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the parties that requested a review withdraw the request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation. The Department published the notice of initiation of this review on June 28, 2013.[5] All withdrawal of review requests were submitted within the 90-day deadline set forth under 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). Further, no other party requested an administrative review of these particular companies. Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), and consistent with our practice,[6] we are rescinding this review of the CVD order on aluminum extrusions from the PRC with respect to the companies listed in the attachment to this notice. The review will continue with respect to all other firms for which a review was requested and initiated.

Assessment

The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess CVDs on all appropriate entries. For the companies for which this review is rescinded, CVDs shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated CVDs required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, during the period January 1, 2012, through December 31, 2012, 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 Regarding Administrative Protective Order

This notice serves as a reminder to parties subject to the administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under an APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. 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 which 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).

*Because a timely withdrawal of review request was submitted, the Department is including Karlton Aluminum Company Ltd. (Karlton) and Zhaoqing New Zhongya Aluminum Co., Ltd. (Zhaoqing) in this rescission notice. However, we note that Zhaoqing is also known as Guangdong Zhongya Aluminum Company Ltd. (Guangdong).[8] A review of Guangdong was requested and such request was not withdrawn. Furthermore, the Department previously has determined that Zhaoqing and Karlton are cross-owned affiliates with Zhongya Shaped Aluminum (HK) Holding Limited (Shaped) and that these companies are part of the company grouping known as Zhongya Companies.[9] A review of Shaped was requested and not withdrawn.[10] Therefore, Karlton and Zhaoqing remain subject to the review as part of the Zhongya Companies.[11] In light of the above, entries of the Zhongya Companies will remain suspended during the 2012 administrative review.
