administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party that requested 
the review withdraws its request within 90 days of the publication date 
of the notice of initiation of the requested review. The petitioner

Commerce received no other requests for review of Qingshuiyuan, Nantong 
Uniphos, and Changzhou Wujin, and no other requests were made for a 
review of the AD order on HEDP from China with respect to other 
companies, we are rescinding the administrative review covering the

this review is rescinded, AD duties shall be assessed at rates equal to 
the cash deposit rate of estimated AD 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 publication of this notice 
in the Federal Register.

responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate

administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written 
notification of return/destruction of APO materials or conversion to 
judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with 
the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.
