SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On April 1, 2019, Commerce published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order [1] on phosphor copper from the Republic of Korea.[2] On April 26 and 30, 2019, Commerce received timely requests from Metallurgical Products Company (Metallurgical or the petitioner) and Bongsan Co., Ltd. (Bongsan) in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.213(b), to conduct an administrative review of this antidumping duty order with respect to Bongsan.[3]

Start Printed Page 39809

On June 13, 2019, Commerce published in the Federal Register the notice of initiation of this antidumping duty administrative review with respect to Bongsan.[4] On July 23 and 24, 2019, Bongsan and the petitioner, respectively, timely withdrew their requests for administrative review of the antidumping duty order with respect to Bongsan.[5]

Rescission of the 2018-2019 Administrative Review

Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), Commerce will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the parties that requested a review withdraw the request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. The instant review was initiated on June 13, 2019. Bongsan withdrew its request for review on July 23, 2019, and the petitioner withdrew its request for a review on July 24, 2019, which is within the 90-day deadline. No other party requested an administrative review of this order. Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are rescinding this review of the antidumping duty order on phosphor copper from the Republic of Korea in its entirety.

Assessment

Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of phosphor copper from Korea. 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 to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of this notice of rescission of administrative review in the Federal Register.

Notification to Importers

This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers for whom this review is being rescinded of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant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 Commerce's presumption that reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (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/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 section 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
