SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On May 26, 2011, the Department published in the Federal Register the AD order on aluminum extrusions from the PRC.[3] The Department received timely requests for an administrative review of the Order and on June 27, 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 the Order.[4] The administrative review was initiated with respect to 155 companies or groups of companies, and covers the period from May 1, 2013 through April 30, 2014 (POR). On September 25, 2014, the Aluminum Extrusions Fair Trade Committee (Petitioner) timely withdrew its request for administrative review with respect to 114 companies.[5] Three other interested parties also timely withdrew their requests for administrative review with respect to four companies.[6] 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. Petitioner withdrew its request for an administrative review of 112 companies listed in the Appendix.[7] Petitioner was the only party to request a review of these companies. Further, three other interested parties withdrew their requests for an administrative review of four companies listed in the Appendix. These three parties were the only parties to request a review of these four companies. Accordingly, the Department is rescinding this review, in part, with respect to these 116 entities, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).[8]

Assessment

The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For the companies for which this review is rescinded, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from 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 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties 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 antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

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).

In prior segments of this proceeding, the Department found that two of the 114 companies, Karlton Aluminum Company Ltd. (Karlton) and Xinya Aluminum & Stainless Steel Product Co., Ltd. (Xinya), were part of the single entity comprised of Guang Ya Aluminium Industries Co., Ltd., Foshan Guangcheng Aluminium Co., Ltd., Kong Ah International Company Limited, and Guang Ya Aluminium Industries (Hong Kong) Ltd. (collectively, Guang Ya Group); Guangdong Zhongya Aluminum Company Limited, Zhongya Shaped Aluminium (HK) Holding Limited, and Karlton (collectively, Zhongya); and Xinya (collectively, Guang Ya Group/Zhongya/Xinya). Because the other companies comprising the Guang Ya Group/Zhongya/Xinya collapsed entity remain under review, the Department cannot rescind the review with respect to Karlton and Xinya.
