SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) is rescinding the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on glycine from Thailand for the period August 5, 2019, through September 30, 2020, based on the timely withdrawal of the request for review. DATES: Applicable February 1, 2021. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Brian Smith or Alexis Cherry, AD/CVD Operations, Office VIII, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: 202–482–1766 or (202) 482–0607, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On October 1, 2020, Commerce published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on glycine from Thailand for the period August 5, 2019, through September 30, 2020.1 On November 2, 2020, the petitioner 2 filed a timely request for review with respect to one company, Newtrend Food Ingredient (Thailand) Co., Ltd. (Newtrend).3 Commerce received no other requests for an administrative review of the antidumping duty order. Based on the petitioner’s request, on December 8, 2020, in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, 1 See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review, 85 FR 61926 (October 1, 2020). 2 The petitioner is GEO Specialty Chemicals, Inc. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:57 Jan 29, 2021 Jkt 253001 Rescission of Administrative Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), Commerce will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party that requested the review withdraws its request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. As noted above, the petitioner timely withdrew its review request by the 90-day deadline, and no other party requested an administrative review of the antidumping duty order. Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are rescinding the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on glycine from Thailand for the period August 5, 2019, through September 30, 2020, in its entirety. Assessment Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of glycine from Thailand at a rate equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, during the period August 5, 2019, through September 30, 2020, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP no earlier than 35 days after the date of publication of this rescission 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. 3 See Petitioner’s Letter, ‘‘Glycine from Thailand (A–549–837): Request for Administrative Review,’’ dated November 2, 2020. 4 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 85 FR 78990 (December 8, 2020) (Initiation Notice).
