Because this CCR request was filed less than 24 months after the date of publication of notices of the final determinations in the investigations, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.216(c), Commerce must determine whether ‘‘good cause’’ exists to initiate this CCR. We find that the ten domestic producers’ affirmative statement of no interest with respect to certain specific large diameter welded pipe products, coupled with the circumstances described below, constitute good cause for the initiation of this review.7 Specifically, the domestic industry stated on the record of the Indian Welded Pipe CCR that it does not currently produce the particular large diameter welded pipe products subject to this CCR request.8 Furthermore, the domestic producers also stated on the record of the Indian Welded Pipe CCR that the investment needed for the industry to produce these products far exceeds the potential benefit of such an investment, given that the U.S. market for deep offshore projects, i.e., the primary market for the large diameter welded pipe product groups at issue, is relatively small.9 In addition, the domestic producers provided an explanation on the record of the Indian Welded Pipe CCR indicating that the commercial reality of welded pipe production has changed since the Orders were put in place.10 On February 5, 2020, we informed counsel to the domestic industry of the CCR request and notified them of the timing for initiation of a review.11 Counsel to the domestic industry stated that they did not intend to file comments prior to the deadline for initiation.12 khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Public Comment We are inviting interested parties to file comments and new factual information not later than 14 days after the date of publication of this notice.

Regulations that marker buoys be marked with identification information are essential to facilitate fisheries enforcement and actions concerning damage, loss, and civil proceedings.

Vessel registration and the use of pot tags provide NMFS with an additional enforcement tool to ensure that the pot limits are not exceeded. The use of pot tags requires a uniquely identified tag to be securely affixed to each pot, which allows at-sea enforcement and post-trip verification of the number of pots fished. NMFS uses information obtained from respondents applying for replacement tags to enforcement of pot limits and enhance tracking of lost fishing gear. Vessel owners submit the form ‘‘Vessel Registration and Request for IFQ Sablefish Pot Gear Tags’’ to annually register their vessels and to request new pot tags if a vessel does not have previously issued tags. Tags assigned to a vessel in previous years are valid as long as the tag can be secured to a pot and the serial number is legible. Vessel owners submit the form ‘‘Request for Replacement of Longline Pot Gear Tags’’ if previously issued tags have been lost, stolen, or mutilated and need to be replaced.

    On September 3, 2019, Commerce published a notice of opportunity to 
request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on CR 
Steel from the UK for the period of review (POR) September 1, 2018,

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

Rescission of Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), Commerce will rescind an 
administrative review ``in whole or in part, if a party that requested 
a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of 
publication of notice of initiation of the requested review.'' The 
petitioners withdrew their request for review within 90-days of the 
publication date of the Initiation Notice. Because we received no other 
requests for review of Liberty Performance Steels Ltd. and Tata Steel 
UK Ltd., and no other requests for the review of the order on CR Steel 
from the UK with respect to other companies subject to the order, we 
are rescinding the administrative review of the order in its entirety, 
in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).

Assessment

    Commerce intends to instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of CR 
Steel products from the UK during the POR at rates equal to the cash 
deposit rate of estimated antidumping 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.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping 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 antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a reminder to 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(a)(3). Timely written 
notification of the return or 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.
    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).
