SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    In April 2013, the Department received multiple timely requests to 
conduct an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on 
certain activated carbon from the PRC (``the Order'').\1\ Based upon 
these requests, on June 3, 2013, the Department published a notice of 
initiation of an administrative review of the Order covering the period 
April 1, 2012, to March 31, 2013.\2\ The Department initiated the 
administrative review with respect to 185 companies.\3\ On August 28, 
2013, Petitioners withdrew their request for an administrative review 
on Shanxi Industry Technology Trading Co., Ltd., (``Shanxi ITT''), 
Shanxi Xuanzhong Chemical Industry Co., Ltd. (``Xuanzhong''), Tianjin 
Maijin Industries Co., Ltd. (``Tianjin'') and Xi'an Shuntong 
International Trade & Industrials Co., Ltd. (``Xi'an'').\4\ Petitioners 
were the only party to request a review of these companies. Petitioners 
also withdrew their review requests for an additional 165 companies, 
and no other party requested a review of those companies. However, 
those companies do not have a separate rate from a prior segment of 
this proceeding and are part of the PRC-wide entity which could come 
under review in this segment of the proceeding. We intend to address 
the disposition of these companies in the preliminary results of this 
review.\5\

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Partial Rescission

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party who requested 
the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of 
publication of notice of initiation of the requested review. 
Petitioners' requests for review of Shanxi ITT, Xuanzhong, Tianjin and 
Xi'an were withdrawn within the 90-day period. Because Petitioners' 
requests for review were timely withdrawn and because no other party 
requested a review of Shanxi ITT, Xuanzhong, Tianjin and Xi'an, in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are partially rescinding this 
review with respect to Shanxi ITT, Xuanzhong, Tianjin and Xi'an.

Assessment Rates

    The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.\6\ 
Because Shanxi ITT, Xuanzhong, Tianjin and Xi'an have a separate rate 
from a prior segment of this proceeding, antidumping duties shall be 
assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping 
duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for 
consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(2). The Department 
intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 
days after publication of this notice.

Notification to Importers

review is being rescinded, as of the publication date of this notice, 
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 Secretary's 
presumption that reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and 
the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (``APO'') of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, which continues 
to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the 
proceeding. Timely written notification of the return or 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 which is subject to sanction.
    This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 
777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 
351.213(d)(4).
