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, Appvion withdrew its request within the 90-day deadline, and no other party requested an administrative review of the CVD order.

The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice.
