The initial IHA authorized take of three species of marine mammals, by Level A and Level B harassment, incidental to construction activities associated with an expansion project at the POK on the Lower Columbia River, Washington. The project has been delayed and none of the work covered in the initial IHA (effective October 18, 2018—October 18, 2019) has been conducted. The scope of the activities and anticipated effects remain the same, authorized take numbers would not change, and the required mitigation, monitoring, and reporting would remain the same as authorized in the 2018 IHA referenced above.

Rescission of Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party who requested 
the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of

the 90-day deadline. No other party requested an administrative review. 
Accordingly, we are rescinding the administrative review of the CVD 
order on silica fabric from China covering the period January 1, 2018, 
to December 31, 2018, in its entirety.

Assessment

    Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to 
assess CVDs on all appropriate entries at a rate equal to the cash 
deposit of estimated CVDs required at the time of entry, or withdrawal 
from warehouse, for consumption, during the period January 1, 2018, to

responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of countervailing duties prior to 
liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure 
to comply with this requirement could result in the presumption that 
reimbursement of the countervailing duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled countervailing duties.

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(a)(3). Timely
