The petitioner’s withdrawal of its request with respect to Maple Ribbon was submitted within the 90-day period, and thus is timely.11 Because the petitioner’s withdrawal of its request with respect to Maple Ribbon for an AD administrative review is timely, and because no other party requested a review of this company, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are rescinding this administrative review, in part, with respect to Maple Ribbon.

    In November 2019, Commerce published in the Federal Register a 
notice of initiation of an administrative review of the AD order on NWR 
from Taiwan with respect to these five companies.\3\ Also in November 
2019, we received timely submissions from Banduoo, Fujian Rongshu, 
Roung Shu, and Xiamen Yi-He notifying Commerce that they did not export 
or sell subject merchandise to the United States during the POR.\4\

and 6307.90.9889. The HTSUS statistical categories and subheadings are 
provided for convenience and customs purposes; however, the written 
description of the merchandise covered by this order is dispositive.

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    Because Banduoo, Fujian Rongshu, Roung Shu, and Xiamen Yi-He timely 
filed statements reporting that they made no shipments of subject 
merchandise to the United States during the POR,\8\ and we were able to 
confirm these claims with CBP,\9\ we preliminarily determine that these 
four companies had no shipments during the POR.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ See Banduoo No Shipment Letter; Fujian Rongshu No Shipment 
Letter; Roung Shu No Shipment Letter; and Xiamen Yi-He No Shipment 
Letter.
    \9\ See No Shipments Inquiry Response.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Consistent with our practice, we are not preliminarily rescinding 
the review with respect to Banduoo, Fujian Rongshu, Roung Shu, and 
Xiamen Yi-He but, rather, we will complete the review with respect to 
these companies and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the 
final results of this review.\10\

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

Rescission of Review, in Part

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), Commerce will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party that requested 
the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of 
publication of notice of initiation of the requested review. The 
petitioner's withdrawal of its request with respect to Maple Ribbon was 
submitted within the 90-day period, and thus is timely.\11\ Because the 
petitioner's withdrawal of its request with respect to Maple Ribbon for 
an AD administrative review is timely, and because no other party 
requested a review of this company, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.213(d)(1), we are rescinding this administrative review, in part, 
with respect to Maple Ribbon.

Assessment Rates

    With respect to Maple Ribbon, Commerce will instruct CBP to assess 
antidumping duties at the cash deposit rate in effect on the date of 
entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). We intend to issue liquidation 
instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice.
    Further, if we continue to find, in the final results, that 
Banduoo, Fujian Rongshu, Roung Shu, and Xiamen Yi-He

[[Page 19925]]

had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR, we will 
instruct CBP to liquidate any suspended entries that entered under 
their AD case numbers (i.e., at that exporter's rate), or at the all-
others rate, if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) 
involved in the transaction. We intend to issue liquidation 
instructions for Banduoo, Fujian Rongshu, Roung Shu, and Xiamen Yi-He 
to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication as 
provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For merchandise 
exported by manufacturers or exporters not covered in this review but 
covered in a prior segment of the proceeding, the cash deposit rate 
will continue to be the company-specific rate published from the most 
recently completed segment; (2) if the exporter is not a firm covered 
in this review, or the original investigation, but the manufacturer is, 
the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most 
recently completed segment for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and 
(3) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will 
continue to be 4.37 percent, the all-others rate determined in the 
less-than-fair-value investigation.\17\ These cash deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a preliminary 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 POR. 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 serves as a preliminary 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/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 sanctionable violation.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4).
