SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

[[Page 43099]]

Background

    On March 2, 2009, the Department published in the Federal Register 
the notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on glycine from the PRC for the period March 1, 
2008, through February 28, 2009. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty 
Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity To Request 
Administrative Review, 74 FR 9077 (March 2, 2009). On March 31, 2009, 
the Department received a request from GEO, a domestic producer of 
glycine, that the Department conduct an administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on glycine from the PRC. GEO requested that the 
review cover 86 producers/exporters of glycine from the PRC. On April 
27, 2009, the Department published in the Federal Register the notice 
of initiation of the 2008-2009 administrative review of glycine from 
the PRC. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 74 FR 19042 
(April 27, 2009).
    On May 22, 2009, because it was not practicable in this 
administrative review to examine all 86 producers/exporters of the 
subject merchandise, the Department selected Baoding Mantong as the 
mandatory respondent in the instant administrative review. See memo to 
the file titled, ``Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Glycine 
from the People's Republic of China: Respondent Selection Memo,'' dated 
May 22, 2009. Also on May 22, 2009, the Department issued its 
antidumping duty questionnaire to Baoding Mantong. Baoding Mantong 
submitted its response to the Department's section A antidumping duty 
questionnaire on June 19, 2009 (AQR), and sections C and D of the 
antidumping duty questionnaire on July 13, 2009. On July 20, 2009, 
Baoding Mantong supplemented its AQR by submitting its 2008 financial 
statement which (as explained at page A-14 of Baoding Mantong's June 
19, 2009, response) were yet to be completed as of the June 19, 2009, 
filing. On July 24, 2009, GEO filed a letter withdrawing its request 
for review of the 86 companies, including Baoding Mantong, for which 
the Department initiated this review.

Period of Review

    The period of review (POR) is March 1, 2008, through February 28, 
2009.

Scope of the Order

    The product covered by the order is glycine, which is a free-
flowing crystalline material, like salt or sugar. Glycine is produced 
at varying levels of purity and is used as a sweetener/taste enhancer, 
a buffering agent, reabsorbable amino acid, chemical intermediate, and 
a metal complexing agent. This review covers glycine of all purity 
levels. Glycine is currently classified under subheading 2922.49.4020 
of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS''). 
Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and Customs 
purposes, the written description of the merchandise subject to the 
order is dispositive.

Rescission of Antidumping Administrative Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR Sec.  351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind 
an administrative review under this section, 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. Because petitioner submitted its request to rescind the 
administrative review of all 86 companies within 90 days of the date of 
publication of the notice of initiation, the Department is rescinding 
this review in accordance with 19 CFR Sec.  351.213(d)(1).

Assessment Instructions

    The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For 
companies for which this review is rescinded, 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 Sec.  351.212(c)(1)(i). The 
Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions 
directly to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR Sec.  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 antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice 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 Sec.  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 terms of an APO is a sanctionable 
violation.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, 
and 19 CFR Sec.  351.213(d)(4).
