Jasun Moy, AD/CVD Operations, Office V, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-8194.
On May 1, 2019, Commerce published in the Federal Register a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty (AD) order on carbon and alloy steel wire rod (wire rod) from the Republic of Turkey (Turkey) for the period October 31, 2017, through April 30, 2019.
On May 31, 2019, Commerce received a timely request to conduct an administrative review of the AD wire rod order from Turkey from Icdas Celik Enerji Tersane ve Ulasim Sanayi A.S. (Icdas).
On July 15, 2019, in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), Commerce initiated an administrative review of the AD order on wire rod from Turkey with respect to Icdas.
On August 2, 2019, Icdas timely withdrew its request for an administrative review.
Rescission of Review
Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), Commerce will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party that requested the review withdraws its request within 90 days of the publication date of the notice of initiation of the requested review. Icdas withdrew its request for review within the 90-day deadline. Because Commerce received no other requests for review of Icdas, and no other requests were made for a review of the AD order on wire rod from Turkey with respect to other companies, we are rescinding the administrative review covering the period October 31, 2017, through April 30, 2019, in full, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).
Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess AD duties on all appropriate entries of wire rod from Turkey during the period of review. For the company for which this review is rescinded, AD duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit rate of estimated AD duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for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 publication of this notice in the Federal Register.
Notification to Importers
This notice serves as the only reminder to importers whose entries will be liquidated as a result of this rescission notice, of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of AD duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the presumption that reimbursement of the AD duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double AD duties.
Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order
This notice also serves as the only reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). 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 sanctionable violation.
Notification to Interested Parties
This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751 and 777(i)(l) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
