Glycine From the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2014-2015, 22212-22213 [2016-08229]

Download as PDF 22212 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 73 / Friday, April 15, 2016 / Notices of subject merchandise made after the POR.6 On November 24, 2015, we received comments from ZFP and NFP. On November 30, 2015, we received rebuttal comments from U.S. producers. Rescission of Review It is the Department’s practice to rescind an administrative review pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3) when there are no suspended entries of subject merchandise during the POR from the country in question.7 At the end of an administrative review, all suspended entries during the POR for the parties under review are liquidated at the assessment rate computed in the final results of review.8 Therefore, since the purpose of an administrative review is to assess antidumping duties, there must be a suspended AD/CVD entry to be liquidated at the newly calculated assessment rate. As discussed in the Decision Memorandum accompanying this notice,9 we find that, because there were no entries of subject merchandise during the POR from Ukraine, we are rescinding the 2014–2015 administrative review of the antidumping duty order on silicomanganese from Ukraine, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3). Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised by parties in this administrative review are addressed in the accompanying Decision Memorandum, which is adopted by this notice.
