On September 11, 2018, Commerce published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on OTR tires from China.
From September 27, 2018, through October 1, 2018, Commerce received timely requests to conduct an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on OTR tires from China from the following firms: Qingdao Honghua Tyre Factory (Honghua Tyre); Triangle Tyre Co., Ltd. (Triangle); Lianzhou Xiongying Industry Co., Ltd. (Xiongying); Qingdao Jinhaoyang International Co., Ltd. (Jinhaoyang); Weihai Zhongwei Rubber Co., Ltd. (Zhongwei); and Super Grip Corporation (Super Grip).
Based on Start Printed Page 13634these requests, on November 11, 2018, in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), Commerce published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of an administrative review covering the period September 1, 2017, through August 31, 2018.
On December 17, 2018, Xiongying submitted a timely request to withdraw its request for administrative review.
On February 4, 2019, Triangle submitted a timely request to withdraw its request for administrative review.
On March 19, 2019, Jinhaoyang submitted a timely request to withdraw its request for administrative review.
Additionally, Commerce exercised its discretion to toll all deadlines affected by the partial federal government closure from December 22, 2018, through the resumption of operations on January 29, 2019.
If the new deadline falls on a non-business day, in accordance with Commerce's practice, the deadline will become the next business day. In this case, the original deadline for parties to withdraw requests for administrative review was February 13, 2019. Therefore, the revised deadline to withdraw a review request was March 25, 2019. The revised deadline for the preliminary results in this review is now Friday, July 12, 2019.
Partial Rescission of Review
Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an administrative review, in part, if a party who requested the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. Xiongying, Triangle, and Jinhaoyang timely withdrew their requests for an administrative review, and no other party requested a review of these companies. Accordingly, we are rescinding this review, in part, with respect to these companies, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). The review will continue with respect to Honghua Tyre, Zhongwei, and Super Grip.
Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of OTR tires 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 to CBP 15 days after the publication of this notice in the Federal Register, if appropriate.
Notification to Importers
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 and/or countervailing duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in Commerce's presumption that reimbursement of the antidumping and/or countervailing duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties.
Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order
This notice serves as a final reminder to parties subject to an administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under an 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/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.
This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
