Harmoni also filed a timely request for withdrawal on the same date.

Rescission in Part

The aforementioned requests for review were timely withdrawn and because no other party requested a review of the aforementioned producers/exporters, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), with respect to these producers/exporters.

Assessment Rates

The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For those producers/exporters for which this review has been rescinded and which have a separate rate from a prior segment of this proceeding, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from the warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(2). For those producers/exporters for which this review has been rescinded and which have not been assigned a separate rate from a prior segment of the proceeding, the Department stated that they belong to the PRC-wide entity and that the administrative review will continue for these companies.[4]

Notification to Importers
