SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) is rescinding the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on polyethylene retail carrier bags from the People’s Republic of China (PRC) for the period August 1, 2015, through July 31, 2016. DATES: Effective February 1, 2017. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Bryan Hansen or Minoo Hatten, AD/ CVD Operations, Office I, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–3683 or (202) 482–1690, respectively. AGENCY: 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. 1 See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 81 FR 51850 (August 5, 2016). PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (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 review of the order on PRCBs from the PRC with respect to Nozawa.3 On January 5, 2017, the petitioners timely withdrew their request for an administrative review of Nozawa.4 No other party requested a review. 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 2 See Letter from the petitioners to the Department, ‘‘Polyethylene Retail Carrier Bags from the People’s Republic of China: Request for Administrative Review,’’ dated August 31, 2016. 3 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 81 FR 71061 (October 14, 2016). 4 See Letter from the petitioners to the Department, ‘‘Polyethylene Retail Carrier Bags from the People’s Republic of China: Withdrawal of Request for Administrative Review,’’ dated January 5, 2017.
