withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of the

with respect to Honghua Tyre, Zhongwei, and Super Grip.

Assessment

    Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to 
assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of OTR tires 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

responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing duties 
prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period.

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
