On December 4, 2019, the petitioners timely withdrew their request for a review in full.11 Likewise, on December 6, 2019, Mitsui timely withdrew its request for a review in full.12 Consequently, only the Metal One Request and the Stemcor Request remain unwithdrawn. The Metal One Request and the Stemcor Request cover three companies: Nippon Steel and Sumikin Sales Vietnam Co., Ltd. (NSSVC); Hoa Sen Group (HSG); and Ton Dong A Corporation (TDA).13 All three companies are Vietnamese exporters of CORE.14 On February 11, 2020, Commerce issued questionnaires to all three companies.15 HSG responded to the questionnaire on March 11, 2020; 16 and NSSVC and TDA responded on March 8 Id. 9 See U.S. Steel’s Letter, ‘‘Corrosion-Resistant Steel Products from the People’s Republic of China: Comments on U.S. Customs and Border Protection Entry Data Results,’’ dated September 19, 2020. 10 Id. 11 See Petitioners’ Letter, ‘‘Corrosion-Resistant Steel Products from the People’s Republic of China: Withdrawal of Request for Administrative Review of Countervailing Duty Order,’’ dated December 4, 2019. 12 See Letter from Mitsui, ‘‘Certain CorrosionResistant Steel Products from the People’s Republic of China: Withdrawal of Review Request of Countervailing Duty Order,’’ dated December 6, 2019. 13 See Metal One Request and Stemcor Request. 14 Id. 15 See Letters from Commerce to NSSVC, HSG, and TDA, ‘‘Corrosion-Resistant Steel from the People’s Republic of China: Administrative Review Questionnaire,’’ dated February 11, 2020 (No Shipment Questionnaires). 16 See Letter from HSG, ‘‘Corrosion-Resistant Steel Products from the People’s Republic of ChinaResponse to Questionnaire,’’ dated March 11, 2020.
