SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) is rescinding the 2011– 2012 antidumping duty administrative review on lightweight thermal paper from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) because Appleton Papers Inc. (‘‘Petitioner’’), timely withdrew its request for review. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On November 5, 2012, the Department published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on lightweight thermal paper from the PRC.1 The period of review (‘‘POR’’) is November 1, 2011, through October 31, 2012. On November 30, 2012, the Department received a timely request from Petitioner to conduct an administrative review of Shanghai Hanhong Paper Co., 1 See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 77 FR 66437 (November 5, 2012).

In this case, there were no other requests for an administrative review by any other party. Pursuant to this request, the Department initiated an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on lightweight thermal paper from the PRC for the POR.2 On April 1, 2013, Petitioner withdrew its request for review for all of the aforementioned parties for which it had made a review request. Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by this review includes certain lightweight thermal paper, which is thermal paper with a basis weight of 70 grams per square meter (g/m2) (with a tolerance of ± 4.0 g/m2) or less; irrespective of dimensions; 3 with or without a base coat 4 on one or both sides; with thermal active coating(s) 5 on one or both sides that is a mixture of the dye and the developer that react and form an image when heat is applied; with or without a top coat; 6 and without an adhesive backing. Certain lightweight thermal paper is typically (but not exclusively) used in point-of-sale applications such as ATM receipts, credit card receipts, gas pump receipts, and retail store receipts. The merchandise subject to this review may be classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) under subheadings 3703.10.60, 4811.59.20, 4811.90.8040, 4811.90.9090, 4820.10.20, 4823.40.00, 4811.90.8030, 4811.90.8050, 4811.90.9030, and 2 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 77 FR 77017 (December 31, 2012). 3 Lightweight thermal paper is typically produced in jumbo rolls that are slit to the specifications of the converting equipment and then converted into finished slit rolls. Both jumbo and converted rolls (as well as lightweight thermal paper in any other form, presentation, or dimension) are covered by the scope of these orders. 4 A base coat, when applied, is typically made of clay and/or latex and like materials and is intended to cover the rough surface of the paper substrate and to provide insulating value. 5 A thermal active coating is typically made of sensitizer, dye, and co-reactant. 6 A top coat, when applied, is typically made of polyvinyl acetone, polyvinyl alcohol, and/or like materials and is intended to provide environmental protection, an improved surface for press printing, and/or wear protection for the thermal print head.

other form, presentation, or dimension) are covered by the scope of 
these orders.
    \4\ A base coat, when applied, is typically made of clay and/or

printing, and/or wear protection for the thermal print head.
    \7\ HTSUS subheading 4811.90.8000 was a classification used for 
lightweight thermal paper until January 1, 2007. Effective that 
date, subheading 4811.90.8000 was replaced with 4811.90.8020 (for 
gift wrap, a non-subject product) and 4811.90.8040 (for ``other''

itself. 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 the terms of an
