SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) is rescinding the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain hotrolled carbon steel flat products (hot rolled steel) from India for the period December 1, 2011, through November 30, 2012. DATES: Effective Date: July 5, 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On January 30, 2013, the Department initiated an administrative review of hot rolled steel from India covering the period December 1, 2011, through November 30, 2012, based on a request by United States Steel Corporation (U.S. Steel) and Nucor Corporation (Nucor).1 The review covers eight companies.2 Nucor and U.S. Steel withdrew their requests for an administrative review of these companies on April 12, 2013, and April 25, 2013, respectively. 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 Initiation Notice. In this case, U.S. Steel and Nucor withdrew their requests within the 90-day deadline and no other parties requested an administrative review of the antidumping duty order. Therefore, we are rescinding the administrative review of hot rolled steel from India covering the period December 1, 2011, through November 30, 2012, of the eight companies listed in the Initiation Notice. Assessment The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all entries of hot rolled steel from India during the period of review. Because the Department is rescinding this administrative review in its entirety, the entries to which this administrative review pertained shall be assessed antidumping duties at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry or AGENCY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:06 Jul 03, 2013 Jkt 229001 1 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 78 FR 6291 (January 30, 2013) (Initiation Notice). 2 See id., 78 FR 6292. PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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 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 the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties. 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).
