DATES: Effective Date: April 6, 2016. SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the ‘‘Department’’) is rescinding the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on steel wire garment hangers from Taiwan for the period of review (‘‘POR’’), December 1, 2014, through November 30, 2015. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kenneth Hawkins, AD/CVD Operations, Office V, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone 202.482.6491. AGENCY: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On February 9, 2016, based on a timely request for review by Petitioners,1 the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on steel wire garment hangers for six companies, covering the period December 1, 2014, through November 30, 2015.2 On March 22, 2016, Petitioners withdrew their request for an administrative review of these companies.3 Rescission of Review asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an administrative review if the party that requested the review withdraws its request within 90 days of the publication of the notice of initiation of 1 M&B Metal Products Company, Inc., Innovative Fabrication LLC/Indy Hanger and US Hanger Company, LLC (collectively ‘‘Petitioners’’). 2 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 81 FR 6832 (February 9, 2016) (‘‘Initiation’’). 3 See letter from Petitioners, ‘‘Re: Third Administrative Review of Steel Wire Garment Hangers from Taiwan—Petitioners’ Withdrawal of Review Request,’’ dated March 22, 2016. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:54 Apr 05, 2016 Jkt 238001 the requested review. Petitioners withdrew their request within the 90day deadline. No other party requested an administrative review of the antidumping duty order. As a result, we are rescinding the administrative review of steel wire garment hangers from Taiwan for the POR. Assessment The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. 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 warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication of this notice. Notifications This notice serves as a final 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 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, which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return/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 sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4). Dated: March 31, 2016.

Currently, the preliminary determination is due no later than April 13, 2016. Postponement of Due Date for Preliminary Determination Section 703(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), requires the Department to issue the preliminary determination in a countervailing duty investigation within 65 days after the date on which the Department initiated the investigation. However, if the Department concludes that the parties concerned are cooperating, and that the case is extraordinarily complicated such that additional time is necessary to make the preliminary determination, section 703(c)(l)(B) of the Act allows the Department to postpone making the preliminary determination until no later than 130 days after the date on which the administering authority initiated the investigation. We have concluded that the parties concerned are cooperating and that the case is extraordinarily complicated, such that we will need more time to make the preliminary determination. Specifically, the Department finds that the instant case is extraordinarily complicated by reason of the number and complexity of the alleged countervailable subsidy practices, and the need to determine the E:\FR\FM\06APN1.SGM 06APN1 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 66 / Wednesday, April 6, 2016 / Notices extent to which particular alleged countervailable subsidies are used by individual manufacturers, producers and exporters.

The due date for these questionnaires is April 7, 2016, which is only six days before the unextended preliminary determination date.

Certain Biaxial Integral Geogrid Products From the People's 
Republic of China: Notice of Postponement of Preliminary Determination 
in the Countervailing Duty Investigation

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

DATES: Effective Date: April 6, 2016.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Katie Marksberry, AD/CVD Operations, 
Office V, Enforcement and Compliance, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th 
Street and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: 
202-482-7906.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On February 8, 2016, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
initiated the countervailing duty investigation of certain biaxial 
integral geogrid products from the People's Republic of China. See 
Certain Biaxial Integral Geogrid Products from the People's Republic of 
China: Initiation of Countervailing Duty Investigation, 81 FR 7745 
(February 16, 2016). Currently, the preliminary determination is due no 
later than April 13, 2016.

Postponement of Due Date for Preliminary Determination

    Section 703(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department to issue the preliminary determination 
in a countervailing duty investigation within 65 days after the date on 
which the Department initiated the investigation. However, if the 
Department concludes that the parties concerned are cooperating, and 
that the case is extraordinarily complicated such that additional time 
is necessary to make the preliminary determination, section 
703(c)(l)(B) of the Act allows the Department to postpone making the 
preliminary determination until no later than 130 days after the date 
on which the administering authority initiated the investigation. We 
have concluded that the parties concerned are cooperating and that the 
case is extraordinarily complicated, such that we will need more time 
to make the preliminary determination. Specifically, the Department 
finds that the instant case is extraordinarily complicated by reason of 
the number and complexity of the alleged countervailable subsidy 
practices, and the need to determine the

[[Page 19955]]

extent to which particular alleged countervailable subsidies are used 
by individual manufacturers, producers and exporters.
    Additionally, the Department notes that we issued questionnaires to 
the respondents in this case on March 1, 2016. The due date for these 
questionnaires is April 7, 2016, which is only six days before the 
unextended preliminary determination date. For these reasons we are 
fully extending the due date until 130 days after the Department's 
initiation for the preliminary determination. Therefore, the deadline 
for the completion of the preliminary determination is now June 17, 
2016.
    This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 703(c)(2) 
of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(f)(1).\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ We acknowledge that the Department inadvertently did not 
notify the parties to this investigation of this postponement within 
the timeframe provided in section 703(c)(2) of the Act.

    Dated: March 31, 2016.

Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
