Stainless Steel Bar From Japan: Rescission of Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: In response to a request from an interested party, the 
Department of Commerce (the Department) initiated an administrative 
review of the antidumping duty order on stainless steel bar from Japan 
(the Order) covering the period February 1, 2010, through January 31, 
2011. The interested party that requested the administrative review has 
since withdrawn its request. As a result, the Department is rescinding 
this review.

DATES: Effective Date: July 17, 2012.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Bryan Hansen or Minoo Hatten, AD/CVD 
Operations, Office 1, Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and 
Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-
3683 or (202) 482-1690, respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On March 30, 2012, the Department published a notice of initiation 
of an administrative review of the Order. See Initiation of Antidumping 
and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for 
Revocation in Part, and Deferral of Administrative Review, 77 FR 19179, 
19181 (March 30, 2012). Based on a request for review from Suruga USA 
Corp. (Suruga), we initiated a review of Misumi Corporation (Misumi). 
Id. No other

[[Page 41970]]

party requested a review. On June 27, 2012, Suruga timely withdrew its 
request for a review of the Order with respect to Misumi. See Letter 
from Suruga to the Secretary, ``Stainless Steel Bar--Withdrawal of 
Request for Administrative Review,'' dated June 27, 2012.

Rescission of Review

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will 
rescind an administrative review, ``in whole or in part, if a party 
that requested a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the 
date of publication of notice of initiation of the requested review.'' 
As explained above, Suruga withdrew its request for a review of the 
Order with respect to Misumi within the 90-day period articulated in 19 
CFR 351.213(d)(1). Therefore, because we received no other requests for 
review of this company and Suruga withdrew its request within the time 
limit provided in the regulation, we are rescinding the administrative 
review of the Order with respect to Misumi in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.213(d)(1).

Assessment Rates

    The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For 
Misumi, 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, during the period 
February 1, 2010, through January 31, 2011, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(c)(2). The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment 
instructions to CBP within 15 days after publication of this notice.

Notifications

    This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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 Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under an 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 violation which is 
subject to sanction.
    This notice is published 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).
