Start Supplemental Information
On April 1, 2019 Commerce published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty (AD) order on biodiesel from Indonesia for the period October 31, 2017, through March 31, 2019.
On April 26, 2019, the petitioner 
filed a timely request for review with respect to PT. Cermerlang Energi Perkasa (CEP); PT. Ciliandra Perkasa; PT. Musim Mas, Medan; PT. Pelita Agung Agrindustri; and Wilmar International Ltd. (collectively, the Companies Subject to Review), in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.213(b).
Pursuant to this request, and in accordance with section 751(a) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), we initiated an administrative review of the order.
On September 10, 2019, the petitioner filed a timely withdrawal of request for the administrative review with respect to all entities for which it had requested a review.
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 that requested the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. As noted above, the petitioner, who was the only party to file a request for review, withdrew its request by the 90-day deadline. Accordingly, we are rescinding the administrative review of the AD order on biodiesel from Indonesia for the period October 31, 2017, through March 31, 2019, in its entirety.
Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess AD duties on all appropriate entries of biodiesel from Indonesia. AD duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit 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 the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register.
Notification to Importers
This notice serves as a reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of CVD 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 AD duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled AD duties.
Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders
This notice also serves as a reminder to all 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. 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).
