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). PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 had no sales, shipments or entries of subject merchandise during the period of review (POR).4 On September 29, 2020, Commerce issued a no shipment inquiry to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to corroborate Habas’ claim.5 On October 2, 2020, Commerce notified all interested parties that CBP found no evidence of shipments of subject merchandise produced and exported by Habas during the POR.6 On October 7, 2020, Commerce provided all parties an opportunity to comment on CBP’s findings.7 No parties submitted comments. 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). Assessment Rates Commerce will instruct CBP to assess CVDs on all appropriate entries. 4 See Habas’ Letter, ‘‘Steel Concrete Reinforcing Bar from Turkey; Habas No Shipment Letter,’’ dated September 6, 2020. 5 See Customs Instructions Message 0273403, dated September 29, 2020. 6 See Memorandum, ‘‘Steel Concrete Reinforcing Bar from the Republic of Turkey (C–489–830): No shipment inquiry with respect to the companies listed below during the period 01/01/2019, through 12/31/2019,’’ dated October 2, 2020. 7 See Memorandum, ‘‘Steel Concrete Reinforcing Bar from the Republic of Turkey: Deadline for Comments on Results of No Shipment Inquiry,’’ dated October 7, 2020. 8 See, e.g., Certain Hardwood Plywood Products from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review and Rescission of Review, in Part; 2017– 2018, 84 FR 54844, 54845 and n.8 (October 11, 2019) (citing Lightweight Thermal Paper from the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Rescission of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review; 2015, 82 FR 14349 (March 20, 2017)). 9 See 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3).
