Rescission of Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), Commerce will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if the parties that 
requested a review withdraw the request within 90 days of the date of 
publication of notice of initiation of the requested review. As noted 
above, the domestic interested parties withdrew their request for 
review by the 90-day deadline, and no other party requested an 
administrative review of this order. Therefore, we are rescinding the 
administrative review of the CVD order on hot-rolled steel flat 
products from Brazil covering the period January 1, 2018, through

entries to which this administrative review pertained 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 directly to CBP 15 
days after the date of publication of this notice in the Federal 
Register.
