Partial Rescission Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party who requested the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of notice of initiation of the requested review.

December 31, 2014. The Department preliminarily found no evidence of 
any reviewable entries and received no comments on the preliminary 
results. Therefore, the Department is rescinding the administrative

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On September 13, 2016, the Department published the Preliminary 
Results.\1\ In accordance with 19 CFR 351.309(c)(1)(ii), we invited 
parties to comment on our Preliminary Results. No parties submitted 
comments.

    \1\ See Certain Magnesia Carbon Bricks from the People's 
Republic of China: Final Results of Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Review; 2014, 81 FR 62870 (September 13, 2016) 
(Preliminary Results).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rescission

    It is the Department's practice to rescind an administrative review 
of a CVD order, pursuant to CFR 351.213(d)(3), when there are no 
reviewable entries of subject merchandise during the POR for which 
liquidation is suspended.\2\ Normally, upon completion of an 
administrative review, the suspended entries are liquidated at the CVD 
assessment rate calculated for the review period. See 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1). 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 CVD 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 rescinding this administrative 
review of the CVD order on MCBs from the PRC.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See, e.g., Certain Welded Carbon Steel Standard Pipe and 
Tube from Turkey: Notice of Final Rescission of Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Review, In Part, 77 FR 6542 (February 8, 2012). In 
the Preliminary Results the Department stated ``As is our practice, 
the Department finds that it is not appropriate to rescind this 
review, but, rather, to complete this review and to issue 
appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of this 
review.'' This sentence was included in error. The Department issues 
preliminary and final results in so-called ``no shipment'' reviews 
in antidumping proceedings only. See, e.g., Silicomanganese from 
India: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review; 2014-2015, 81 FR 28826 (May 10, 2016) and accompanying 
Decision Memorandum at 3.

    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, 
and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).

Duty Operations.
