Partial Rescission of Administrative Review

    On August 28, 2013, the Department initiated a review of eight 
companies in this proceeding.\1\ On December 12, 2013, Petitioners and 
SRF timely withdrew their requests for review. On the same date, 
Polyplex USA and Flex USA (domestic interested parties) timely withdrew 
their requests for reviews of all companies except Jindal and SRF.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocations in Part, 78 FR 
53128 (August 28, 2013). The eight companies were Ester Industries 
(Ester), Garware Polyester Ltd. (Garware), Jindal, MTZ Polyesters 
Ltd. (MTZ), Polyplex Corporation Ltd. (Polyplex), SRF, Uflex Limited 
(Uflex), and Vacmet. DuPont Teijin Films, Mitsubishi Polyester Film,

for six companies (Ester, Garware, Polyplex, SRF, Jindal, and 
Vacmet). Polyplex, USA LLC (Polyplex USA) and Flex Films (USA) Inc. 
(Flex USA) requested a review for eight companies (SRF, Jindal, 
Polyplex, Garware, Ester, Uflex, MTZ, and Vacmet). In addition, SRF 
self-requested an administrative review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On December 18, 2013, Jindal and SRF filed a request with the 
Department to reject Polyplex USA's and Flex USA's review requests in 
both the antidumping duty and CVD proceedings because, they alleged, 
the requestors did not have standing to request a review for the 
current PORs. The Department made an interested party determination on 
March 20, 2014, concluding that Polyplex USA and Flex USA were eligible 
to request administrative reviews for this proceeding.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See Memorandum to Edward Yang, Director AD/CVD Operations, 
Office VII, Enforcement and Compliance re: Interested Party Status

Administrative Reviews: Polyethylene Terephthalate Film, Sheet, and 
Strip (PET film) from India; 2012-2013 (March, 20, 2013).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As Petitioners', Polyplex USA's, and Flex USA's review and 
withdrawal requests were timely filed, we are rescinding this 
administrative review with respect to Polyplex, Garware, Ester, Uflex, 
MTZ, and Vacmet (pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1)), and proceeding with 
the reviews of Jindal and SRF.

Methodology

    The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(l)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). For each 
of the subsidy programs found countervailable, we preliminarily 
determine that there is a subsidy, i.e., a government-provided 
financial contribution that gives rise to a benefit to the recipient, 
and that the subsidy is specific.\3\ For a full description of the 
methodology underlying our conclusions, see the Memorandum from 
Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Operations to Ronald K. Lorentzen, Acting Assistant 
Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, titled Decision Memorandum

Assessment Rates and Cash Deposit Requirements

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4)(i), the Department assigned

results of this review the Department intends to instruct U.S. Customs 
and Border Protection (CBP) to liquidate shipments of subject 
merchandise produced and/or exported by SRF and Jindal, entered or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption from January 1, 2012, through 
December 31, 2012, at 2.08 percent ad valorem and 8.36 percent ad

    The Department intends also to instruct CBP to collect cash 
deposits of estimated CVDs at the rate of 2.08 percent ad valorem and

shipments of the subject merchandise produced and/or exported by SRF 
and Jindal, entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or 
after the date of publication of the final results of this review.\4\ 
We intend to instruct CBP to continue to collect cash deposits for non-
reviewed companies at the applicable company-specific CVD rate for the 
most recent period or all-others rate established in the investigation. 
These cash deposit rates, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.
