DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE Rescission of Review AGENCY: It is the Department’s practice to rescind an administrative review of a countervailing duty order, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), when there are no reviewable entries of subject merchandise during the POR for which liquidation is suspended.8 Normally, upon completion of an administrative review, the suspended entries are liquidated at the countervailing duty assessment rate calculated for the review period.

Therefore, for an administrative review to be conducted, there must be a reviewable, suspended entry that the Department can order CBP to liquidate at the newly calculated countervailing duty assessment rate. Accordingly, in the absence of suspended entries of subject merchandise during the period of this administrative review (January 1, 2014, through December 31, 2014), we are now rescinding this administrative review of the countervailing duty order on LWTP from the PRC, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3).

Rescission of Review

    It is the Department's practice to rescind an administrative review 
of a countervailing duty order, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), when 
there are no reviewable entries of subject merchandise during the POR 
for which liquidation is suspended.\8\ Normally, upon completion of an 
administrative review, the suspended entries are liquidated at the 
countervailing duty assessment rate calculated for the review period. 
See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(l). Therefore, for an administrative review to be 
conducted, there must be a reviewable, suspended entry that the 
Department can order CBP to liquidate at the newly calculated 
countervailing duty assessment rate. Accordingly, in the absence of 
suspended entries of subject merchandise during the period of this 
administrative review (January 1, 2014, through December 31, 2014), we 
are now rescinding this administrative review of the countervailing 
duty order on LWTP from the PRC, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3).
