Rescission of Review

    It is Commerce's practice to rescind an administrative review of a 
countervailing duty order, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), when there 
are no reviewable entries of subject merchandise during the POR for 
which

[[Page 49548]]

liquidation is suspended.\8\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(l). Therefore, for 
an administrative review to be conducted, there must be a reviewable, 
suspended entry that Commerce can order CBP to liquidate at the newly 
calculated countervailing duty assessment rate. Accordingly, in the 
absence of suspended entries of subject merchandise during the POR, we 
are now rescinding this administrative review of the countervailing 
duty order on OCTG from China, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3).
