Background

On August 1, 2013, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published in the Federal Register a notice of “Opportunity to Request Administrative Review” of the antidumping duty order on light-walled rectangular pipe and tube (LWR pipe and tube) from Mexico for the period of review (POR) of August 1, 2012, through July 31, 2013.[1] The Department received timely requests from two foreign producers, Maquilacero S.A. de C.V. (Maquilacero) and Regiomontana de Perfiles y Tubos S.A. de C.V. (Regiopytsa), filed in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), for an administrative review of their shipments during the POR.[2] On September 13, 2013, Maquilacero withdrew its request for the administrative review.[3] On October 2, 2013, the Department published a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on light-walled from Mexico with respect to Regiopytsa.[4]

The Department stated in its initiation of this review that it intended to rely on U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data to select respondents.[5] We released the results of our CBP data query to interested parties and invited them to comment on the CBP data.[6] We received no comments on the CBP data.

Rescission of Review

19 CFR 351.213(d)(1) stipulates that the Secretary will rescind an administrative review under this section, in whole or in part, if a party that requested a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of notice of initiation of the requested review. As the only party that requested a review (Regiopytsa) withdrew its request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review, we are rescinding this review of the antidumping duty order on light-walled from Mexico pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).[7] In accordance with 19 CFR 356.8(a), the Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 41 days after the date of publication of this notice of rescission of administrative review.

This notice is published in accordance with section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
