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) for the period January 1, 2012, through December 31, 2012.[1] On May 31, 2013, we received from Electrolux North America, Inc., Electrolux Home Products, Inc., and Electrolux Major Appliances (collectively, Electrolux), a domestic interested party, a request that the Department conduct an administrative review of Hong Kong Gree Electric Appliances Sales Limited (Hong Kong Gree).[2] On June 28, 2013, the Start Printed Page 2636Department published a notice of initiation of administrative review with respect to 153 companies.[3] On August 27, 2013, Hong Kong Gree notified the Department that it had no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the period of review (POR).[4] On November 8, 2013, we published a notice of intent to rescind this administrative review with respect to Hong Kong Gree, and invited interested parties to comment.[5] We received no comments, and have determined that the review of Hong Kong Gree should be rescinded.

Partial Rescission of Review

Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), the Department may rescind an administrative review, with respect to a particular exporter or producer, if the Secretary concludes that, during the period covered by the review, there were no entries, exports, or sales of the subject merchandise to the United States by that producer. Hong Kong Gree submitted a letter to the Department certifying that it had no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. No parties commented on Hong Kong Gree's claim of no shipments.

Previously, on August 2, 2013, we released the results of a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data query, which indicated that Hong Kong Gree had no suspended entries of subject merchandise during the POR.[6] After receipt of Hong Kong Gree's no shipment certification, we sent a “no shipments inquiry” message to CBP, which posted the message on September 20, 2013.[7] The Department did not receive any information from CBP contrary to Hong Kong Gree's claim of no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR.

Based on our analysis of all the information on the record, we determine that Hong Kong Gree had no shipments or entries of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), and consistent with our practice,[8] we are rescinding the review for Hong Kong Gree. We will continue this administrative review with respect to those companies for which a review was requested and not subsequently withdrawn.[9]

We are issuing this notice in accordance with section 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
