administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain hot-

that the Department conduct an administrative review of Essar Steel

requests and in accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), the Department 
published a notice initiating the administrative review of Essar, 
Ispat, JSW, and Tata. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 77 FR 
4759 (January 31, 2012).
    On January 31, 2012, the Department placed on the record and 
invited interested parties to comment on U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (``CBP'') data, which the Department stated it would use for 
respondent selection in the instant review. See Memorandum to the File

respectively, submitted letters informing the Department that they did 
not make shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during 
the period of review.

Corporation and U.S. Steel Corporation timely withdrew their respective 
requests for review of Essar, Ispat, JSW, and Tata.

Rescission of Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an
