Background On May 27, 2011, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain activated carbon from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) covering the period April 1, 2010, to March 31, 2011. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 76 FR 30912, 30913 (May 27, 2011) (‘‘Initiation Notice’’). On June 10, 2011, Petitioners 1 withdrew their request for an administrative review for the following companies: Calgon Carbon (Tianjin) Co., Ltd. (‘‘CCT’’) and Ningxia Huahui Activated Carbon Co., Ltd. (‘‘Huahui’’). On June 10, 2011, Huahui withdrew its request for a review of itself that was originally submitted on April 29, 2011. Then, on June 10, 2011, Albemarle Corporation (‘‘Albemarle’’), a company we previously determined to be a wholesaler of the domestic-like product, withdrew its request for review of CCT previously submitted on April 29, 2011. Likewise, on June 15, 2011, CCT withdrew its request for a review of itself originally submitted on April 29, 2011. 1 Petitioners are Calgon Carbon Corporation & Norit Americas Inc., collectively. PO 00000 Frm 00041 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 39851 Partial Rescission Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), 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. The aforementioned requests for review were withdrawn within the 90-day period. Because the requests for review were timely withdrawn and because no other party requested a review of the aforementioned companies, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are partially rescinding this review with respect to CCT and Huahui. Assessment Rates The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. Both CCT and Huahui have a separate rate from a prior segment of this proceeding; therefore, 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). Accordingly, the Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice for CCT and Huahui. Notification to Importers 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 Administrative Protective Orders 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 E:\FR\FM\07JYN1.SGM 07JYN1 39852 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 130 / Thursday, July 7, 2011 / Notices protective order is hereby requested.

Specifications, Characteristics, and Uses: Large diameter seamless pipe is used primarily for line applications such as oil, gas, or water pipeline, or utility distribution systems. Seamless pressure pipes are intended for the conveyance of water, steam, petrochemicals, chemicals, oil products, natural gas and other liquids and gasses in industrial piping systems. They may carry these substances at elevated pressures and temperatures and may be subject to the application of external heat. Seamless carbon steel pressure pipe meeting the ASTM A–106 standard may be used in temperatures of up to 1000 degrees Fahrenheit, at various American Society of Mechanical Engineers (‘‘ASME’’) code stress levels. Alloy pipes made to ASTM A–335 standard must be used if temperatures and stress levels exceed those allowed for ASTM A–106. Seamless pressure pipes sold in the United States are commonly produced to the ASTM A– 106 standard. Seamless standard pipes are most commonly produced to the ASTM A–53 specification and generally are not intended for high temperature service. They are intended for the low temperature and pressure conveyance of water, steam, natural gas, air and other E:\FR\FM\07JYN1.SGM 07JYN1

Certain Activated Carbon From the People's Republic of China: 

Notice of Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review



AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 

Department of Commerce.



DATES: Effective Date: July 7, 2011.



FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Catherine Bertrand, AD/CVD Operations, 

Office 9, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 

U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., 

Washington, DC 20230; telephone--(202) 482-3207.



Background



    On May 27, 2011, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 

published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of an 

administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain 

activated carbon from the People's Republic of China (``PRC'') covering 

the period April 1, 2010, to March 31, 2011. See Initiation of 

Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 76 FR 

30912, 30913 (May 27, 2011) (``Initiation Notice'').

    On June 10, 2011, Petitioners \1\ withdrew their request for an 

administrative review for the following companies: Calgon Carbon 

(Tianjin) Co., Ltd. (``CCT'') and Ningxia Huahui Activated Carbon Co., 

Ltd. (``Huahui''). On June 10, 2011, Huahui withdrew its request for a 

review of itself that was originally submitted on April 29, 2011. Then, 

on June 10, 2011, Albemarle Corporation (``Albemarle''), a company we 

previously determined to be a wholesaler of the domestic-like product, 

withdrew its request for review of CCT previously submitted on April 

29, 2011. Likewise, on June 15, 2011, CCT withdrew its request for a 

review of itself originally submitted on April 29, 2011.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------



    \1\ Petitioners are Calgon Carbon Corporation & Norit Americas 

Inc., collectively.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------



Partial Rescission



    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), 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. The 

aforementioned requests for review were withdrawn within the 90-day 

period. Because the requests for review were timely withdrawn and 

because no other party requested a review of the aforementioned 

companies, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are partially 

rescinding this review with respect to CCT and Huahui.



Assessment Rates



    The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 

(``CBP'') to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. Both 

CCT and Huahui have a separate rate from a prior segment of this 

proceeding; therefore, 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). Accordingly, the Department 

intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 

days after publication of this notice for CCT and Huahui.



Notification to Importers



    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 Administrative Protective Orders



    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



[[Page 39852]]



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 Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 

351.213(d)(4).



    Dated: June 30, 2011.
