Rescission of Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), Commerce will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if the parties that 
requested the review withdraw their requests within 90 days of the 
publication date of the notice of initiation of the requested review. 
OCTAL withdrew its request for a review within the 90-day deadline. 
Because Commerce did not receive any other requests to review the order

this administrative review in its entirety, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.213(d)(1).

Assessment

    Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to 
assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of PET resin from 
Oman during the period May 1, 2019, through April 30, 2020, at rates 
equal to the cash deposit rates for estimated antidumping duties that 
were required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for 
consumption, 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

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 the presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

    This notice also serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which continues to govern 
business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding.
