See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review, 76 FR 54735 (September 2, 2011). On September 30, 2011, in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.213(b), the Department received a timely request from Resco Products, Inc., the petitioner and a domestic interested party, to conduct an administrative review of the sales of RHI–Refmex S.A. de C.V. Resco Products, Inc. was the only party to request this administrative review. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:28 Dec 19, 2011 Jkt 226001 On October 31, 2011, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain magnesia carbon bricks from Mexico with respect to RHI–Refmex S.A. de C.V. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 76 FR 67133 (October 31, 2011). On November 22, 2011, Resco Products, Inc. timely withdrew its request for a review of RHI–Refmex S.A. de C.V. Rescission of Administrative Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the parties that requested a review withdraw the request within 90 days of the date of publication of notice of initiation of the requested review. Resco Products, Inc. withdrew its request for review before the 90-day deadline, and no other party requested an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain magnesia carbon bricks from Mexico for the POR. Therefore, in response to Resco Products, Inc.’s withdrawal of its request for review, and pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department is rescinding in whole the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain magnesia carbon bricks for the period March 11, 2010, through September 6, 2010, and September 16, 2010, through August 31, 2011.

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)(1)(i). The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. Notification to Importers This notice serves as the only reminder to importers 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 antidumping duties PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 78885 occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order This notice serves as the only 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 351.305(a)(3).

See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 76 FR 11197 (March 1, 2011). On March 30, 2011, we received a letter from Erbosan Erciyas Boru Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. (ERBOSAN) requesting that the company’s entries for the period of review be reviewed by the Department. On April 27, 2011, the Department published the notice of initiation of the administrative review of this CVD order for the period of review (POR) of January 1, 2010, through December 31, 2010, which included ERBOSAN.1 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 76 FR 23545 (April 27, 2011). On October 27, 2011, the Department requested U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data on Type 3 entries of subject merchandise to the United States produced by EROBSAN during the POR. See Memorandum to the File from Kristen Johnson, Trade Analyst, AD/CVD Operations, Office 3, regarding ‘‘Request for Customs Data in the Countervailing Duty Administrative Review of Certain Welded Carbon Steel Standard Pipe from Turkey,’’ (October 27, 2011). A Type 3 entry is an entry of merchandise imported into the United States which is subject to antidumping or countervailing duties, as the case may be, and for which liquidation is suspended until after the completion of an administrative review in which the assessment rate is calculated. We reviewed the customs data provided by CBP and found that there were no suspended entries of subject merchandise produced by ERBOSAN for the POR. On November 3, 2011, we issued a letter to ERBOSAN explaining that the Department’s practice requires there to be a suspended entry during the POR upon which to assess duties in order to conduct an administrative review.2 As 1 A review of the following companies was also initiated: Borusan Group, Borusan Mannesmann Boru Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S., Borusan Istikbal Ticaret T.A.S., Tosyali dis Ticaret A.S., and Toscelik Profil ve Sac Endustrisi A.S. 2 See, e.g., Certain Hot-Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products from India: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 76 FR 42679 (July 19, 2011), and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 1; see also Certain Cutto-Length Carbon-Quality Steel Plate Products from Italy: Final Results and Partial Rescission of E:\FR\FM\20DEN1.SGM 20DEN1

continuation of the antidumping duty orders.

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

    As a result of these sunset reviews, the Department determined that

Ukraine would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of 
dumping and notified the ITC of the magnitude of the margins likely to 
prevail should the orders be revoked. See Solid Urea From the Russian

recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States 
within a reasonably foreseeable time. See Solid Urea From Russia and 
Ukraine, 76 FR 77015 (December 9, 2011), and ITC Publication 4279
