Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). The Preliminary Decision Memorandum

Preliminary Intent To Rescind the Administrative Review

    Based on information submitted after the initiation of this 
administrative review, and due to the fact that we have not received 
any information from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
indicating that the companies subject to this review had reviewable 
entries of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR, 
Commerce preliminarily determines that the record evidence indicates 
that no company subject to this review had reviewable entries during 
the POR.\4\ Should evidence arise that leads us to conclude that the 
companies subject to this review had reviewable entries of subject 
merchandise to the United States during the POR, we will revisit this 
issue in the final results of this administrative review. Absent any 
evidence of POR entries of subject merchandise being placed on the 
record, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), we intend to rescind the 
administrative review of these companies in the final results.
