---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rescission of Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party that requested 
the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of 
publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. As 
noted above, the petitioner, the only party to file a request for 
review, withdrew its request by the 90-day deadline. Accordingly, we 
are rescinding the administrative review of the countervailing duty 
order on steel nails from Vietnam for the period January 1, 2018, 
through December 31, 2018, in its entirety.

Assessment

    Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to 
assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of steel nails 
from Vietnam. Countervailing duties shall be assessed at rates equal to 
the cash deposit of estimated countervailing 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 the date of 
publication of this notice in the Federal Register.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a reminder to importers of their 
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 countervailing duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled countervailing duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as a reminder to all parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305. Timely written notification of 
the return/destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial 
protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the 
regulations and terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to 
sanction.
    This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 
751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
