SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On December 1, 2011, the Department published in the Federal 
Register the notice of opportunity to request an administrative review 
of the antidumping duty order on welded large diameter line pipe from 
Japan for the period December 1, 2010, through November 30, 2011. See 
Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended 
Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review, 76 FR 
74773 (December 1, 2011). On January 3, 2012, the Department received a 
request from U.S. Steel that the Department conduct an administrative 
review covering five producers/exporters of welded large diameter line 
pipe from Japan. On January 31, 2012, the Department published in the 
Federal Register the notice of initiation of the 2010-2011 
administrative review of welded large diameter line pipe from Japan. 
See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative 
Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 77 FR 4759 (January 31, 
2012).
    On March 20, 2012, the Department received notices on behalf of 
Sumitomo Corporation as well as Sumitomo Metal Industries, Ltd. and its 
wholly owned subsidiary Sumitomo Metals Pipe & Tube Company informing 
the Department that neither had made any exports, sales or entries of 
subject merchandise into the United States for the period of review 
(``POR'').
    On March 21, 2012, the Department released the results of a data 
query to the United States Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') 
regarding imports into the United States of welded large diameter line 
pipe from Japan during the POR. We did not receive any comments from 
parties.
    On April 30, 2012, U.S. Steel withdrew its request for 
administrative review for all companies.

Period of Review

    The POR is December 1, 2010, through November 30, 2011.

Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review

    19 CFR 351.213(d)(1) of the Department's regulations provides that 
the Department will rescind an administrative review if the party that 
requested the review withdraws its request for review within 90 days of 
the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested 
review. As U.S. Steel has withdrawn its request for review of all 
companies within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of 
initiation of review, the Department is rescinding the review 
consistent with 19 CFR 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 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 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 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 351.213(d)(4).
