[[Page 65343]]

April 30, 2016 in the Federal Register.\1\ On May 31, 2016, the 
Department received timely-filed requests from DAK Americas LLC and 
Auriga Polymers (the petitioners), and Huvis Corporation (Huvis), in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), for an administrative review of 
Huvis.\2\ On July 7, 2016, pursuant to these requests and in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), the Department published a notice of 
initiation of an administrative review of Huvis.\3\ On July 12, 2016,

Rescission of Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(l), the Department will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party, or parties,

within 90 days of the publication date of the notice of initiation. In 
addition, Huvis also timely withdrew its request for an administrative 
review. No other parties requested an administrative review of the

Republic of Korea. Therefore, in response to the timely withdrawal of 
requests for review and in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(l), the 
Department is rescinding this review.

Assessment

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 presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    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 an APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely 
written notification of the return or 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 sanctionable 
violation.
    This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections
