Rescission in Part

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party that requested 
the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of 
publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. 
Commerce initiated the instant review on January 11, 2018, and the 
petitioners withdrew their request on April 11, 2018, which is within 
the 90-day period and is thus timely. Because the petitioners' 
withdrawal of their requests for review is timely and because no other 
party requested a review of Flex, we are rescinding this review, in 
part, with respect to Flex, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). 
JBF did not withdraw its request for review of itself. As such, the 
instant review will continue with respect to JBF.

Assessment

    Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to 
assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. Subject 
merchandise produced and/or exported by Flex will be assessed 
antidumping duties at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated 
antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from 
warehouse, for consumption, during the period November 1, 2015, through 
October 31, 2016, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). Commerce 
intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date 
of publication of this notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a reminder to importers for whom this review 
is being rescinded, as of the publication date of this notice, of their 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 Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
increase in the amount of antidumping duties assessed.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

    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 APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), 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 section 
751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 
CFR 351.213(d)(4).
