Rescission of Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), Commerce will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party, or parties, 
that requested a review withdraw the request/s within 90 days of the 
publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. As 
noted above, Steel Dynamics and SSAB Enterprises withdrew their request 
for review by the 90-day deadline, and no other party requested an 
administrative review of this order. Therefore, in response to the 
timely withdrawal of the request for review, and, in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.213(d)(1), Commerce is rescinding this administrative review in 
its entirety.

Assessment

    Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to 
assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. Antidumping 
duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of

administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility
