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. 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). This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4). Dated: July 25, 2016.

For directions on how to subscribe, please visit http://www.nist.gov/pqcrypto. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In recent years, there has been a substantial amount of research on quantum computers—machines that exploit quantum mechanical phenomena to solve mathematical problems that are difficult or intractable for conventional computers. If large-scale quantum computers are ever built, they will compromise the security of many commonly used cryptographic algorithms. In particular, quantum computers would completely break many public-key cryptosystems, including those standardized in FIPS 186–4, Digital Signature Standard (http://dx.doi.org/10.6028/ NIST.FIPS.186-4), SP 800–56A Revision 2, Recommendation for Pair-Wise Key Establishment Schemes Using Discrete Logarithm Cryptography (http:// dx.doi.org/10.6028/NIST.SP.800-56Ar2), and SP 800–56B Revision 1, Recommendation for Pair-Wise KeyEstablishment Schemes Using Integer Factorization Cryptography (http:// dx.doi.org/10.6028/NIST.SP.800-56Br1). Due to this concern, many researchers have begun to investigate post-quantum cryptography (PQC) (also called quantum-resistant cryptography). The goal of this research is to develop cryptographic algorithms that would be PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 secure against both quantum and classical computers. A significant effort will be required in order to develop, standardize, and deploy new postquantum algorithms. In addition, this transition needs to take place well before any large-scale quantum computers are built, so that any information that is later compromised by quantum cryptanalysis is no longer sensitive when that compromise occurs. NIST has taken a number of steps in response to this potential threat. On April 2–3, 2015, NIST held a public workshop on Cybersecurity in a PostQuantum World to solicit input on public-key cryptographic policy in the time of quantum computers. NIST also published NISTIR 8105, Report on PostQuantum Cryptography (http:// dx.doi.org/10.6028/NIST.IR.8105), in April 2016 which shares NIST’s understanding of the status of quantum computing and post-quantum cryptography. As a result of study and public feedback, NIST has decided to develop additional public-key cryptographic algorithms through a public standardization process, similar to the development processes for the hash function SHA–3 and the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). To begin the process, NIST has drafted a set of minimum acceptability requirements, submission requirements, and evaluation criteria for candidate algorithms. The draft document containing these requirements and criteria is available at the Web site: http://www.nist.gov/pqcrypto. NIST seeks comments on these draft minimum acceptability requirements, submission requirements, evaluation criteria, and the evaluation process, as well as suggestions for other criteria and for the relative importance of each individual criterion in the evaluation process. Since neither the submission requirements nor the evaluation criteria have been finalized, and may evolve over time as a result of the public comments that NIST receives, candidate algorithms should NOT be submitted at this time. Authority: In accordance with the Information Technology Management Reform Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104–106) and the Federal Information Security Management Act of 2002 (Pub. L. 107–347), the Secretary of Commerce is authorized to approve FIPS. NIST activities to develop computer security standards to protect federal sensitive (unclassified) information systems are undertaken pursuant to specific responsibilities assigned to NIST by Section 20 of the National Institute of Standards and Technology Act (15 U.S.C. 278g–3), as amended.

weighted-average dumping margins are not zero or de minimis (i.e., less 
than 0.5 percent) in the final results of this review, we will 
calculate importer-specific (or customer-specific) ad valorem 
assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of 
dumping calculated for the importer's examined sales and the total 
entered value of the sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
    However, where the respondent did not report the entered value for 
its sales, we will calculate importer-specific (or customer-specific) 
per-unit duty assessment rates. Where the respondents' weighted-average 
dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-specific 
assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.
    For companies Ester, MTZ, Polyplex, Uflex, and Vacmet for which 
this review is rescinded, we will instruct CBP to assess 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).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of PET Film from India entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the date of publication of the final 
results of this administrative review, as provided for by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for the company 
under review will be the rate established in the final results of this 
review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, i.e., less than 0.5 
percent, no cash deposit will be required); (2) for previously reviewed 
or investigated companies not listed above, the cash deposit rate will 
continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recent 
period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a 
prior review, or the less-than-fair-value investigation, but the 
manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for 
the most recent period for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) 
if neither the exporter nor the manufacturer is a firm covered in this 
or any previous review, the cash deposit rate will be the all others 
rate for this proceeding, 5.71 percent. These deposit requirements, 
when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of 
their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties and/or countervailing 
duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this POR. 
Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary's 
presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties and/or 
countervailing duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled 
antidumping duties.
    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(1) 
and 351.221(b)(4).
