AGENCY: Mission Description The United States Department of Commerce’s (DOC) International Trade Administration (ITA), with participation PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 from the U.S. Departments of Energy and State, is organizing the 11th Annual U.S. Industry Program at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) General Conference, to be held September 16–19, 2018, in Vienna, Austria. The IAEA General Conference is the premier global meeting of civil nuclear policymakers and typically attracts senior officials and industry representatives from all 162 Member States. The U.S. Industry Program is part of the U.S. Department of Commerce’s (DOC) Civil Nuclear Trade Initiative, a U.S. Government effort to help U.S. civil nuclear companies identify and capitalize on commercial civil nuclear opportunities around the world. The purpose of the program is to help the U.S. nuclear industry promote its services and technologies to an international audience, including senior energy policymakers from current and emerging markets as well as IAEA staff. Representatives of U.S. companies from across the U.S. civil nuclear supply chain are eligible to participate. In addition, organizations providing related services to the industry, such as universities, research institutions, and U.S. civil nuclear trade associations, are eligible for participation. The mission will help U.S. participants gain market insights, make industry contacts, solidify business strategies, and identify or advance specific projects with the goal of increasing U.S. civil nuclear exports to a wide variety of countries interested in nuclear energy. The schedule includes: Meetings with foreign delegations and discussions with senior U.S. Government officials on important civil nuclear topics including regulatory, technology and standards, liability, public acceptance, export controls, financing, infrastructure development, and R&D cooperation. Past U.S. Industry Programs have included participation by the U.S. Secretary of Energy, the Chairman of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and senior U.S. Government officials from the Departments of Commerce, Energy, State, the ExportImport Bank of the United States and the National Security Council. There are significant opportunities for U.S. businesses in the global civil nuclear energy market. With 55 reactors currently under construction in 15 countries and 160 nuclear plant projects planned in 27 countries over the next 8– 10 years, this translates to a market demand for equipment and services totaling $500–740 billion over the next ten years. This mission contributes to DOC’s Civil Nuclear Trade Initiative by assisting U.S. businesses in entering or expanding in international markets. E:\FR\FM\27JYN1.SGM 27JYN1

Rescission of Administrative Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), Commerce will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party that requested 
a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of 
publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. In 
this case, the petitioners withdrew their request for review by the 90-
day deadline. Because Commerce received no other request for a review 
of the antidumping duty order with respect to Golden Dragon, and no 
other requests were made for a review of the antidumping duty order 
with respect to other companies, we are rescinding this administrative 
review covering the period November 1, 2016, through October 31, 2017, 
in accordance with 19 CFR 213(d)(1).

Assessment

    Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to 
assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of copper pipe and 
tube from China during the POR. 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). Commerce 
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 the only 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 presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

    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), which continues to govern 
business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. 
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 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).
