---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rescission

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party that requested 
the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of 
publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. Both 
parties timely submitted withdrawal requests within the 90-day period 
(i.e., before January 29, 2013). Because we received no other requests 
for review of Fengchi and BRC and no other requests for review of the 
CVD order on MCBs from the PRC with respect to other companies subject 
to the order, we are rescinding this administrative review of the CVD 
order on MCBs from the PRC in full, consistent with 19 CFR 
351.213(d)(1).

Assessment

    The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) to assess countervailing duties on all appropriate entries. 
Fengchi and BRC shall be assessed countervailing duties at rates equal 
to the cash deposit of estimated countervailing duties required at the 
time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, during 
the period January 1, 2011, through December 31, 2011, in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department intends to issue 
appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of 
this notice.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

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