Background In April 2012, the Department received multiple timely requests to conduct an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain activated carbon from the PRC (‘‘the Order’’). Based upon these requests, on May 29, 2012, the Department published a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the Order covering the period April 1, 2011, to March 31, 2012.1 The Department initiated the administrative review with respect to 187 companies.2 On August 27, 2012, Petitioners withdrew their request for an administrative review on Shanxi Xuanzhong Chemical Industry Co., Ltd. (‘‘Xuanzhong’’) and Xi’an Shuntong International Trade & Industrials Co., Ltd. (‘‘Xi’an’’).3 Petitioners were the only party to request a review of these companies. 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 1 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 77 FR 31568, 31570 (May 29, 2012) (‘‘Initiation Notice’’). 2 See id. 3 Petitioners also withdrew their request for review of Calgon Carbon (Tianjin) Co., Ltd. (‘‘Calgon’’). However, Albemarle Corporation also has submitted a request for an administrative review of Calgon in the current proceeding. See Letter from Albemarle Corporation, dated April 30, 2012. Additionally, we note that there are additional companies for which all review requests were withdrawn within the 90 day period. See Letter to the Department from Petitioners, Re: Certain Activated Carbon from the People’s Republic of China: Petitioners’ Withdrawal of Certain Requests for Administrative Review, dated August 27, 2012.

Because Petitioners’ requests for review were timely withdrawn and because no other party requested a review of Xuanzhong and Xi’an, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are partially rescinding this review with respect to Xuanzhong and Xi’an. Assessment Rates The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.4 Because Xuanzhong and Xi’an have a separate rate from a prior segment of this proceeding, 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). 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 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.

(collectively, the petitioner). In September 2012, the Department held a public hearing at the request of Hubschercorp. Also in September 2012, the Department extended the deadline for these final results until December 1, 2012. As explained in the memorandum from the Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, the Department has exercised its discretion to toll deadlines for the duration of the closure of the Federal Government from October 29, through October 30, 2012. Thus, all deadlines in this segment of the proceeding have been extended by two days. The revised deadline for the final results of this administrative review is now December 3, 2012.2 The Department has conducted this administrative review in accordance with section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Scope of the Order The scope of the order covers narrow woven ribbons with woven selvedge. The product is currently classified under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings 5806.32.1020; 5806.32.1030; 5806.32.1050 and 5806.32.1060.

See Preliminary Results, 77 FR at 32940.

SUMMARY: On May 29, 2012, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') published 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'') based on multiple timely 
requests for an administrative review. The review covers 187 companies. 
Based on a withdrawal of the requests for review of certain companies 
from Calgon Carbon Corporation and Norit Americas Inc. 
(``Petitioners''), we are now rescinding this administrative review 
with respect to two companies.

DATES: Effective Date: December 6, 2012.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Bob Palmer, AD/CVD Operations, Office 
9, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S.

Background

    In April 2012, the Department received multiple timely requests to 
conduct an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on 
certain activated carbon from the PRC (``the Order''). Based upon these 
requests, on May 29, 2012, the Department published a notice of 
initiation of an administrative review of the Order covering the period 
April 1, 2011, to March 31, 2012.\1\ The Department initiated the 
administrative review with respect to 187 companies.\2\ On August 27, 
2012, Petitioners withdrew their request for an administrative review 
on Shanxi Xuanzhong Chemical Industry Co., Ltd. (``Xuanzhong'') and 
Xi'an Shuntong International Trade & Industrials Co., Ltd. 
(``Xi'an'').\3\ Petitioners were the only party to request a review of 
these companies.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 77 FR 
31568, 31570 (May 29, 2012) (``Initiation Notice'').
    \2\ See id.
    \3\ Petitioners also withdrew their request for review of Calgon 
Carbon (Tianjin) Co., Ltd. (``Calgon''). However, Albemarle 
Corporation also has submitted a request for an administrative 
review of Calgon in the current proceeding. See Letter from 
Albemarle Corporation, dated April 30, 2012. Additionally, we note 
that there are additional companies for which all review requests 
were withdrawn within the 90 day period. See Letter to the 
Department from Petitioners, Re: Certain Activated Carbon from the 
People's Republic of China: Petitioners' Withdrawal of Certain 
Requests for Administrative Review, dated August 27, 2012. These 
additional companies for which all review requests were withdrawn do 
not have a separate rate from a prior segment of this proceeding. We 
intend to address the disposition of these companies in the 
preliminary results of this review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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. 
Petitioners' requests for review of Xuanzhong and Xi'an were withdrawn 
within the 90-day period. Because Petitioners' requests for review were 
timely withdrawn and because no other party requested a review of 
Xuanzhong and Xi'an, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are 
partially rescinding this review with respect to Xuanzhong and Xi'an.

Assessment Rates

    The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.\4\ 
Because Xuanzhong and Xi'an have a separate rate from a prior segment 
of this proceeding, 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). The Department intends to issue 
appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after 
publication of this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

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 or destruction of 
APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby 
requested. Failure to comply with the regulations
