    Petitioners were the only party to request a review of these 
companies.

Partial Rescission

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party who requested 
the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of 
publication of notice of initiation of the requested review. 
Petitioners' request was submitted within the 90-day period and, thus, 
is timely. Because Petitioners' withdrawal of requests for review is 
timely and because no other party requested a review of the

[[Page 12941]]

aforementioned companies, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we 
are rescinding this review with respect to the above listed companies.

Assessment Rates

    The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For 
those companies for which this review has been rescinded and which have 
a separate rate, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to 
the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time 
of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(2). The Department intends to issue appropriate 
assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of 
this notice for those companies with a separate rate.
    For the above companies that are part of the PRC-wide entity, 
Department cannot order liquidation at this time because although they 
are no longer under review as a separate entity, they may still be 
under review as part of the PRC-wide entity. Therefore, the Department 
cannot order liquidation instructions at this time because their 
respective entries may be under review in the ongoing administrative 
review. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions for the 
PRC-wide entity 15 days after publication of the final results of the 
ongoing administrative review.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a final reminder to importers for whom this 
review is being rescinded, as of the publication date of this notice, 
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 the Secretary's 
presumption that reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and 
the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (``APO'') of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, which continues 
to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the 
proceeding. Timely written notification of the return/destruction of 
APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby 
requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO 
is a violation which is subject to sanction.
    This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 
777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 
351.213(d)(4).

    Dated: March 3, 2011.
Christian Marsh,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations.
