SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with Background On August 1, 2012, we published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on PRCBs from the PRC for the period of review August 1, 2011, through July 31, 2012.1 On August 31, 2012, the petitioners, the Polyethylene Retail Carrier Bag Committee and its individual members, Hilex Poly Co., LLC, and Superbag 1 See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review, 77 FR 45580 (August 1, 2012).

Because we received no other requests for review of Nozawa and no other requests for the review of the order on PRCBs from the PRC with respect to other companies subject to the order, we are rescinding the administrative review of the order in full. This rescission is in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). Accordingly, the Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection 15 days after publication of this notice. Notification to Importer 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 doubled antidumping duties. 2 See letter from the petitioners to the Department, ‘‘Polyethylene Retail Carrier Bags from the People’s Republic of China: Request for Administrative Review’’ (August 31, 2012). 3 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 77 FR 59168 (September 26, 2012). 4 See letter from the petitioners to the Department, ‘‘Polyethylene Retail Carrier Bags from the People’s Republic of China: Withdrawal of Request for Administrative Review’’ (November 21, 2012).
