SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On April 14, 2009, the Department published in the Federal Register the AD order on certain steel threaded rod from the PRC.[1] On April 1, 2014, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the AD order on certain steel threaded rod.[2] The Department received multiple timely requests for an administrative review of the AD order on certain steel threaded rod and on May 29, 2014, in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”), the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of the initiation of an administrative review of that order.[3] The administrative review was initiated with respect to 92 companies or groups of companies, and covers the period from April 1, 2013, through March 31, 2014. On June 18, 2014, Petitioner withdrew its request for an administrative review on 83 companies.[4] While there are a number of companies which remain under review, the requesting parties timely withdrew all review requests for certain companies, as discussed below.

Rescission of Review, in Part

Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary 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 date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. Petitioners withdrew their request for an administrative review of the 83 companies listed in the Appendix.[5] Petitioner was the only party to request a review of these companies. Accordingly, the Department is rescinding this review, in part, with respect to these entities, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).[6]

Assessment

The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”) to assess ADs on all appropriate entries. For the companies for which this review is rescinded, ADs shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated ADs required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in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 to Importers

This notice serves as the only reminder to importers for whom this review is being rescinded, as of the publication date of this notice, of their responsibility under 19 CFR Start Printed Page 56769351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of ADs prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that reimbursement of the ADs occurred and the subsequent assessment of double ADs.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (“APO”) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, 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.

Notification to Interested Parties

This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751 and 777(i)(l) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
