SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on R-
134A from China.\1\ On April 27, and April 30, 2018, Commerce received

requests, on June 6, 2018, in accordance with section 751(a) of the 
Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), Commerce published in the 
Federal Register a notice of initiation of an administrative review 
covering the October 7, 2016, through March 31, 2018 POR, with respect 
to TTI and Sanmei.\3\ On August 7 and 21, 2018, TTI and Sanmei, 
respectively, timely withdrew their requests for an antidumping duty 
administrative review, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).\4\ No other

Duty Administrative Review,'' dated April 27, 2018 and the letter 
from Sanmei, ``1,1,1,2-Tetrafluoroethane (R-134A) from the People's

Notice).
    \4\ See letter from TTI, ``Antidumping Duty Administrative

Republic of China; Withdrawal of Request for Antidumping Duty

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rescission

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), Commerce 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. TTI and Sanmei 
both timely withdrew their requests for an administrative review within 
the 90-day deadline, and no other party requested an administrative 
review of this order. Therefore, we are rescinding the administrative 
review of antidumping duty order on R-134A from China covering the 
period October 7, 2016 through March 31, 2018, in its entirety.

Assessment

    Because Commerce is rescinding this administrative review in its 
entirety, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of R-134A 
from China. The entries to which this administrative review pertains 
shall be assessed antidumping duties at rates equal to the cash 
deposits 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 the publication of this notice in the 
Federal Register.

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.

Notification to Interested Parties

    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: August 31, 2018.
