Background

On October 4, 2017, Commerce published a notice of “Opportunity to Request Administrative Review” of the antidumping order on steel wire garment hangers from China.[1] In October 2017, Commerce received timely requests to conduct administrative reviews of the antidumping duty order on steel wire garment hangers from China from the petitioner and Shanghai Wells Hanger Co., Ltd., and its two affiliates.[2] Based upon these requests, on December 7, 2017, Commerce published a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the order covering the period October 1, 2016, to September 30, 2017.[3] Commerce initiated the administrative review with respect to 20 companies.[4] On December 18, 2017, the petitioner withdrew its request for an administrative review of 17 companies.[5]

Partial Rescission

Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party who requested the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of notice of initiation of the requested review. The petitioner timely withdrew its review request, in part, and no other party requested a review of the companies for which the petitioner requested a review. Out of the 18 companies for which the petitioner requested an administrative review, the petitioner withdrew its requests for review of 17 companies, which are listed in the Appendix to this notice.[6] Accordingly, we are rescinding this review of steel wire garment hangers from China for the period October 1, 2016, through September 30, 2017, in part, with respect to these entities, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).

This administrative review will continue with respect to Shanghai Wells.

Assessment

Commerce 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 For the companies for which this review is rescinded, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from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). Commerce 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This notice serves as the only reminder to importers for whom this review is being rescinded, as of the publication date of this notice, of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping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 order (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 Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
