Start Supplemental Information
On November 1, 2018, Commerce published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on coated paper from China.
On November 30, 2018, Commerce received timely requests to conduct an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on coated paper from China from Verso Corporation, Sappi North America, Inc., and the United Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and Service Workers International Union, AFL-CIO, CLC (collectively, the petitioners).
Based on this request, on February 6, 2019, 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 November 1, 2017, through October 31, 2018 covering 15 producers/exporters.
In the Initiation Notice, we noted that the deadline for parties to withdraw requests for administrative review was 90 days from the publication of the instant notice, i.e., May 7, 2019. On March 29, 2019, the petitioners timely submitted a request to withdraw its request for administrative review with respect to all companies identified in the Initiation Notice.
Rescission of Review
Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party or parties who requested the review withdraw(s) the request within 90 days Start Printed Page 15592of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. As explained above, the petitioners timely withdrew their request for an administrative review of all companies listed in the Initiation Notice by the 90-day deadline, and no other party requested a review of these companies. Accordingly, we are rescinding this review in its entirety, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.2013(d)(1).
Commerce will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of coated paper 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.
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).
