Background

    On December 27, 2006, the Department published a notice of

    On January 23, 2007, the Fresh Garlic Producers Association (the 
``Petitioner'') withdrew its request for an administrative review for 
the following nine companies: Jinan Yipin Corporation, Ltd. (``Jinan 
Yipin''), Linshu Dading Private Agricultural Products Co., Ltd.,

Ltd. (``Omni Decor'').

Partial Rescission

    Pursuant to section 351.213(d)(1) of the Department's regulations, 
the Secretary will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in 
part, if a party who requested the review withdraws the request within 
90 days of the date of publication of notice of initiation of the 
requested review.
    Therefore, because the Petitioner's withdrawal of requests for 
review was timely and no other party requested a review of the 
aforementioned companies, in accordance with section

a separate rate, 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)(2). The Department will issue appropriate 
assessment instructions directly to CBP within 15 days of publication 
of this notice. For those companies for which this review has been 
rescinded but do not have a separate rate at this time (and thus remain 
part of the PRC-wide entity), the Department will issue assessment 
instructions upon the completion of this administrative review.

    This notice serves as a final reminder to importers for whom this 
review is being rescinded, as of the publication date of this notice, 
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 Secretary's 
presumption that reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and 
the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding APOs

    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).
