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, who was 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 AD order on 
biodiesel from Argentina for the period August 28, 2017, through 
December 31, 2018, in its entirety.

Assessment

    Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to 
assess AD duties on all appropriate entries of biodiesel from 
Argentina. AD duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash 
deposit 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 the date of publication of this 
notice in the Federal Register.

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

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
