SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On September 17, 2004, the Department published in the Federal 
Register the countervailing duty order on hot-rolled steel from Brazil. 
See Agreement Suspending the Countervailing Duty Investigation on Hot-
Rolled Flat-Rolled Carbon-Quality Steel From Brazil; Termination of 
Suspension Agreement and Notice of Countervailing Duty Order, 69 FR 
56040 (September 17, 2004). On September 1, 2010, the Department 
published a notice announcing the opportunity to request an 
administrative review of the countervailing duty order on hot-rolled 
steel from Brazil for the period January 1, 2009, through December 31, 
2009. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or 
Suspended Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review, 
75 FR 53635 (September 1, 2010). On September 30, 2010, in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.213(b), the Department received a timely request from 
Nucor, a domestic producer of hot-rolled steel, to conduct an 
administrative review of USIMINAS and COSIPA.
    In accordance with section 751(a)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (the 
Act) and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), on October 28, 2010, the Department 
published a notice initiating an administrative review of USIMINAS and 
COSIPA under the countervailing duty order. See Initiation of 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 75 FR 66349 
(October 28, 2010). On January 6, 2011, Nucor withdrew its request for 
review.

Rescission of Administrative Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party that requested 
the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of 
publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. 
Nucor's January 6, 2011, withdrawal was within the 90-day period, and 
no other party requested a review. Therefore, pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.213(d)(1), the Department is rescinding this administrative review.

Assessment

    The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) to assess countervailing duties at the cash deposit rate in 
effect on the date of entry, for entries by USIMINAS and COSIPA during 
the period January 1, 2009, through December 31, 2009. The Department 
intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days 
after publication of this notice of rescission of administrative 
review.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice serves as a final reminder to parties subject to the 
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/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.
    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).
