Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; 
Opportunity To Request Administrative Review, 78 FR 54235 (September 3,

the requested review. Resco Products, Inc. withdrew its request for 
review before the 90-day deadline, and no other party requested an 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain magnesia 
carbon bricks from Mexico for the POR. Therefore, in response to Resco

administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain magnesia

of estimated antidumping 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 directly to CBP 15 days after the date of

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

reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written
