the administrative review of the countervailing duty order on certain

(``seamless pipe'') from the People's Republic of China (``PRC'') for 
the period January 1, 2011, through December 31, 2011.

DATES: Effective Date: April 30, 2013.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sergio Balbontin, AD/CVD Operations,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    The Department initiated an administrative review of the 
countervailing duty order on seamless pipe from the PRC covering the 
period January 1, 2011, through December 31, 2011, based on a request 
by United States Steel Corporation (``U.S. Steel''). See Initiation of 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request 
for Revocation in Part, 77 FR 77017 (December 31, 2012) (``Initiation 
Notice''). The review covers 203 companies. See Initiation Notice, 77 
FR at 77026-77029.
    On March 27, 2013, U.S. Steel withdrew its request for an 
administrative review of these 203 companies.

Rescission of Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party that requested 
the review withdraws its request within 90 days of the publication of 
the notice of initiation of the requested review. In this case, U.S. 
Steel withdrew its requests within the 90-day deadline and no other 
parties requested an administrative review of the countervailing duty 
order. Therefore, we are rescinding the administrative review of 
seamless pipe from the PRC covering the period January 1, 2011, through 
December 31, 2011, of the 203 companies listed in the Initiation 
Notice.

Assessment

    The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') to assess countervailing duties on all entries of seamless 
pipe from the PRC during the POR at rates equal to the cash deposit of 
estimated countervailing 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 to CBP 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)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of countervailing duties prior to 
liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period.
    This notice also serves as a final reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (``APO'') of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely 
written notification of the return/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 that is 
subject to sanction.
    This notice is issued and 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).
