End Further Info End Preamble Start Supplemental Information



On April 3, 2015, the Department initiated an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on pencils from the PRC for the period December 1, 2013, through November 30, 2014, based on a self-request by Orient International Holding Shanghai Foreign Trade Co., Ltd. (SFTC).[1] On April 23, 2015, SFTC timely withdrew its request for review.[2]

Rescission of Administrative Review

Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(l), the Secretary will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party that requested a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. In this case, SFTC withdrew its request within the 90-day deadline. No other party requested an administrative review of SFTC. Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are rescinding the instant review with respect to SFTC.

Because no other parties requested a review of this order for this period, we are rescinding the administrative review of the pencils order covering the period December 1, 2013, through November 30, 2014, in its entirety.


The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. Because the Department is rescinding this administrative review in its entirety, the entries to which tis administrative review pertained shall be assessed antidumping duties 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 to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of this notice of rescission of administrative review.


This notice serves as a final reminder to importers 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 presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (“APO”) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). 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 sanctionable violation.

This notice is in accordance with section 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
