SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) is rescinding the administrative review of the countervailing duty (CVD) order on steel concrete reinforcing bar (rebar) from the Republic of Turkey (Turkey), covering the period January 1, 2019, through December 31, 2019.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On July 1, 2020, Commerce published in the Federal Register a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the CVD order on rebar from Turkey.1 On July 30, 2020, the Rebar Trade Coalition (the petitioner) timely requested that Commerce conduct an administrative review of for Habas Sinai ve Tibbi Gazlar Istihsal Endustrisi A.S (Habas).2 We received no other requests for review. On September 3, 2020, Commerce published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of an administrative review with respect to Habas, in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).3 On September 6, 2020, Habas notified Commerce that it 1 See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review, 85 FR 39531 (July 1, 2020). 2 See Petitioner’s Letter, ‘‘Steel Concrete Reinforcing Bar from the Republic of Turkey: Request for Administrative Review,’’ dated July 30, 2020. 3 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 85 FR 54983 (September 3, 2020) (Initiation Notice).

Rescission of Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), it is Commerce’s practice to rescind an administrative review of a CVD order where it concludes that there were no reviewable entries of subject merchandise during the POR.8 Normally, upon completion of an administrative review, the suspended entries are liquidated at the CVD assessment rate for the review period. See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(2). Therefore, for an administrative review to be conducted, there must be a reviewable, suspended entry that Commerce can instruct CBP to liquidate at the calculated CVD assessment rate for the review period.9 As noted above, CBP confirmed that there were no entries of subject merchandise during the POR with respect to Habas, the only company subject to this review. Accordingly, in the absence of reviewable, suspended entries of subject merchandise during the POR, we are rescinding this administrative review, in its entirety, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3).

THFA is a member of the heterocyclic compounds known as furans and is miscible with water and soluble in many common organic solvents. THFA is currently classifiable in the Harmonized Tariff Schedules of the United States (HTSUS) under subheading 2932.13.00.00.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On July 1, 2020, Commerce published in the Federal Register a 
notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the CVD 
order on rebar from Turkey.\1\ On July 30, 2020, the Rebar Trade 
Coalition (the petitioner) timely requested that Commerce conduct an 
administrative review of for Habas Sinai ve Tibbi Gazlar Istihsal 
Endustrisi A.S (Habas).\2\ We received no other requests for review. On

Rescission of Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), it is Commerce's practice to 
rescind an administrative review of a CVD order where it concludes that 
there were no reviewable entries of subject merchandise during the 
POR.\8\ Normally, upon completion of an administrative review, the 
suspended entries are liquidated at the CVD assessment rate for the 
review period. See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(2). Therefore, for an 
administrative review to be conducted, there must be a reviewable, 
suspended entry that Commerce can instruct CBP to liquidate at the 
calculated CVD assessment rate for the review period.\9\ As noted 
above, CBP confirmed that there were no entries of subject merchandise 
during the POR with respect to Habas, the only company subject to this 
review. Accordingly, in the absence of reviewable, suspended entries of 
subject merchandise during the POR, we are rescinding this 
administrative review, in its entirety, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.213(d)(3).
