Partial Rescission of Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department 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

received the petitioner's withdrawal request within the 90-day

respect to Dongyuan, Feidong, Newecan, New Shichu, Shunde Native 
Produce, Superte, Yingao, Yuyao, Zhaoshun, and Zhongshan Silk.\7\

to the File, ``Zhongshan Silk Imp. & Exp. Group Co., Ltd. of 
Guangdong's Submission of Withdrawal of Request for Administrative

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

Assessment

    The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For the 
company for which this review is rescinded, antidumping duties shall be 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)(1)(i). As the company 
for which this review is rescinded is also subject to an ongoing new 
shipper review of the antidumping duty order on drawn stainless steel 
sinks from the PRC covering the period October 4, 2012, through October 
14, 2013, the Department's assessment instructions as a result of this 
rescission will only cover the period October 15, 2013, through March 
31, 2014. The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment 
instructions directly to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of 
this notice in the Federal Register.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as the only reminder to importers 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 antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
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 
notification of 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 APO is a sanctionable violation.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751 
and 777(i)(l) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR
