SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On November 4, 2016, the Department of Commerce (the Department)

Rescission of Review

    It is the Department's practice to rescind an administrative review 
of a countervailing duty order, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), when 
there are no reviewable entries of subject merchandise during the POR 
for which liquidation is suspended.\7\ Normally, upon completion of an 
administrative review, the suspended entries are liquidated at the 
countervailing duty assessment rate calculated for the review period. 
See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(l). Therefore, for an administrative review to be 
conducted, there must be a reviewable, suspended entry that the 
Department can order CBP to liquidate at the newly calculated 
countervailing duty assessment rate. Accordingly, in the absence of 
suspended entries of subject merchandise during the period of this 
administrative review (January 1, 2015 through December 31, 2015), we 
are now rescinding this administrative review of the countervailing 
duty order on LWTP from the PRC, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3).
