SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On November 1, 2018, Commerce published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the countervailing duty (CVD) order on WSPP from India.[1] On February 6, 2019, in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), Commerce published a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the order covering the period January 1, 2017, through December 31, 2017.[2] On March 8, 2019, Commerce selected Hindustan Inox Limited (Hindustan Inox), and Sun Mark Stainless Pvt. Ltd. and its cross-owned affiliates, Sunrise Stainless Private Limited and Shah Foils Ltd. (collectively, Sun Mark), as the mandatory respondents in this administrative review.[3] On May 7, 2019, Hindustan Inox and Sun Mark withdrew their requests for review; Bristol Metals and Primus Pipe & Tube (the petitioners) also submitted a timely request to rescind the administrative review of the CVD order of WSPP from India with respect to all entities for which it had requested a review.[4]

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 of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. Hindustan Inox, Sun Mark, and the petitioners timely withdrew their requests for an administrative review, and no other party requested a review of these companies. Therefore, we are rescinding the administrative review of the CVD order on WSPP from India covering the period January 1, 2017, to December 31, 2017, in its entirety.

Assessment

Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess countervailing duties on all appropriate entries. Because Commerce is rescinding this administrative review in its entirety, the entries to which this administrative review pertains shall be assessed countervailing duties that are equal to the cash deposits of estimated countervailing 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.
