SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On August 5, 2016, the Department published a notice of opportunity 
to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on 
polyethylene retail carrier bags (PRCBs) from the PRC for the period of 
review (POR) August 1, 2015, through July 31, 2016.\1\ On August 31, 
2016, the petitioners, the Polyethylene Retail Carrier Bag Committee 
and its individual members, Hilex Poly Co., LLC, and Superbag 
Corporation, requested an administrative review of the order with 
respect to Dongguan Nozawa Plastics Products Co., Ltd. and United Power 
Packaging, Ltd. (collectively, Nozawa).\2\ On October 14, 2016, in 
accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the Act) and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), we initiated an administrative

Rescission of Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an 
administrative review, ``in whole or in part, if a party that requested 
a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of 
publication of notice of initiation of the requested review.'' The 
petitioners withdrew their request for review within the 90-day time 
limit. Because we received no other requests for review of Nozawa and 
no other requests for the review of the order on PRCBs from the PRC 
with respect to other companies subject to the order, we are rescinding 
the administrative review of the order in full, in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.213(d)(1).

Assessment

    The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of PRCBs 
from the PRC during the POR at rates equal to the cash deposit or 
bonding rate 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). The Department intends to issue 
appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of 
this notice in the Federal Register.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
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 Department's presumption

[[Page 8911]]

that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
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 the terms of an APO is a sanctionable 
violation.
    This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 
751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
