Background

On February 3, 2020, Commerce published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the countervailing duty order on certain cold-drawn mechanical tubing from India.[1] Pursuant to requests from interested parties, Commerce initiated an administrative review with respect to 16 companies, in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, Start Printed Page 39530as amended (the Act).[2] Subsequent to the initiation of the administrative review, the petitioners [3] timely withdrew their request for an administrative review of 13 companies, as discussed below. No other party requested an administrative review of these companies.

Partial Rescission of Administrative 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 a review withdraws its request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation. The request for an administrative review of the following companies was withdrawn within 90 days of the date of publication of the Initiation Notice: Anand Tubes Pvt., Ltd.; Apl Apollo Steel Tubes; Automotive Steel Pipe; Bhushan Steel Ltd./Tata Steel BSL Limited; Garg Tube Limited; Hyundai Steel Pipe India Pvt., Ltd.; Innoventive Industries; ISMT Limited; Jindal (India) Ltd.; Jindal Saw Ltd.; Khanna Industrial Pipes Pvt., Ltd.; Pennar Industries, Inc.; and Sandvik Asia Pvt., Ltd.[4] As a result, Commerce is rescinding this review with respect to these 13 companies, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). The review will continue with respect to Goodluck India Limited, Good Luck Industries, and Tube Investments of India Ltd.[5]

Assessment

Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess countervailing duties on all appropriate entries. For the companies for which this review is rescinded, countervailing duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated countervailing duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(l)(i). Commerce intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice.

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 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 antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (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 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 violation which is subject to sanction.

Notification to Interested Parties
