(Appvion) and Kanzaki Specialty Papers Inc. (Kanzaki) within the deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i).3 Appvion and Kanzaki (domestic interested parties) claimed interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act as producers of lightweight thermal paper in the United States. On December 23, 2019, Commerce received an adequate substantive response from the domestic interested parties within the 30-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3).4 Commerce did not receive any submissions from any other interested parties. Because Commerce did not receive a substantive response from either the Government of China (GOC) or the respondent interested parties who are producers or exporters of lightweight thermal paper, we determined that respondent interested parties provided inadequate responses to Commerce’s notice of initiation. On December 23, 2019, Commerce notified the U.S. International Trade Commission that it did not receive an adequate substantive response from respondent interested parties.5 As a result, pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(B)–(C), Commerce is conducting an expedited (120-day) sunset review of the CVD Order.

2018, through September 30, 2019.\1\ On October 31, 2019, the

Products from the Netherlands/Withdrawal Of Request For 
Administrative Review,'' dated February 21, 2020.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 Tata Steel Steel Ijmuiden BV, and no other 
requests for the review of the order on HR Steel from the Netherlands 
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 will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to 
assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of HR Steel 
products from the Netherlands 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).
