Partial Rescission of the 2015-2016 Administrative Review
Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the parties that requested a review withdraw the request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review.

Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), and consistent with our practice,
we are rescinding this review of the antidumping duty order on certain pasta from Italy, in part, with respect to Afeltra, Delverde Alimentari, Felicetti, Labor, La Fabbrica, Ligouri, Rustichella, and Tamma. The instant review will continue with respect to Andalini, Ghigi, GR.A.M.M., Indalco, Tesa, and Zaffiri.
The Department will instruct Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For the companies for which this review is rescinded, Afeltra, Delverde Alimentari, Felicetti, Labor, La Fabbrica, Ligouri, Rustichella, and Tamma, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash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, during the period July 1, 2015, through June 30, 2016, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i).
