SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On February 3, 2020, Commerce published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on truck and bus tires from China for the period of review (POR) February 15, 2019 through January 31, 2020.[1] In February 2020, various producers and exporters timely requested an administrative review of the antidumping duty order with respect to truck and bus tires from China.[2] On April 8, 2020, in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act) and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), we initiated an administrative review of the order on truck and bus tires from China with respect to the 22 respondents listed in the Initiation Notice.[3] During April through June 2020, the respondents timely withdrew their requests for an administrative review.[4] Commerce Start Printed Page 39531received no other requests for an administrative review of the antidumping duty order.

Rescission of Review

Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), Commerce will rescind an administrative review “in whole or in part, if a party that requested a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of notice of initiation of the requested review.” All respondents withdrew their requests for review within 90-days of the publication date of the Initiation Notice. Because we received no other requests for review of the respondents, and no other requests for the review of the order on truck and bus tires from China with respect to other companies subject to the order, we are rescinding the administrative review of the order in its entirety, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).

Assessment

Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of truck and bus tires from China during the POR at rates equal to the cash deposit rate 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 publication of this notice in the Federal Register.

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 Commerce's presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

This notice also serves as a 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 the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.

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).
