SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On December 1, 2016, the Department published a notice of 
opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty 
order on malleable cast iron pipe fittings from the PRC for the 
December 1, 2015, through November 30, 2016, period of review (POR).\1\ 
On January 3, 2017, the Department received from Anvil International, 
LLC (the petitioner) a timely request to conduct an administrative 
review of the antidumping duty order on malleable cast iron pipe 
fittings from the PRC for four producers and/or exporters of the 
subject merchandise.\2\ Based on this request, on February 13, 2017, in

(the Act), the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of 
initiation of an administrative review covering the period December 1, 
2015, through November 30, 2016, with respect to four companies: SLK, 
LDR, Jinan Meide Casting Co., Ltd. (JMC), and Langfang Pannext Pipe 
Fitting Co., Ltd. (Pannext).\3\ Based on a timely withdrawal of 
requests for review, the Department previously rescinded the review, in 
part, with respect to Pannext and JMC.\4\ On April 27, 2017, the

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 a 
review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication 
of the notice of initiation of the requested review. Anvil timely 
withdrew its request for an administrative review of SLK and LDR within 
the 90-day deadline. No other party requested a review of these 
companies. Accordingly, we are rescinding this review with respect to 
these companies, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). Further, as a result 
of the rescission with respect to SLK and LDR and the prior rescission 
with respect to Pannext and JMC, this review is now rescinded in its 
entirety.

Assessment

    Because the Department is rescinding this administrative review in 
its entirety, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries of malleable cast iron pipe fittings from the PRC. Antidumping 
duties shall be assessed 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). The Department intends to issue appropriate 
assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication of this 
notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a 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 that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice serves as a final reminder to parties subject to an 
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, which 
continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of 
the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return/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 violation which is subject to sanction.
    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).

    Dated: May 24, 2017.
