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

of the ten 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 brass sheet and 
strip from Germany 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 withdrawal from

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
