Certain Steel Threaded Rod From the People's Republic of China; 
2012-2013; Partial Rescission of the Fourth Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: On June 3, 2013, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') published a notice of initiation of an administrative 
review of the antidumping duty order on certain steel threaded rod from 
the People's Republic of China (``PRC'') based on multiple timely 
requests for an administrative review, and on August 28, 2013, the 
Department issued a correction to the notice of initiation. The review 
covers 80 companies. Based on a withdrawal of the requests for review 
of certain companies from Vulcan Threaded Products, Inc. 
(``Petitioner''), we are now rescinding this administrative review with 
respect to seven companies.

DATES: Effective Date: September 13, 2013.

Operations, Office 9, Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and

or (202) 482-4047, respectively.

Background

    In April 2013, the Department received multiple timely requests to 
conduct an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on 
certain steel threaded rod from the PRC (``the

[[Page 56656]]

Order''). Based upon these requests, on June 3, 2013, the Department 
published a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the 
Order covering the period April 1, 2012, to March 31, 2013.\1\ The 
Department incorrectly included three companies in the Initiation 
Notice, which was corrected in the August Initiation Notice, where the 
Department removed these three companies and instead initiated on two 
other companies.\2\ The Department has initiated an administrative 
review with respect to 80 companies. On July 5, 2013, Petitioner 
withdrew its request for an administrative review on Certified Products 
International Inc. (``CPI''); Gem-Year Industrial Co., Ltd. (``Gem 
Year''); Haiyan Julong Standard Part Co., Ltd. (``Haiyan Julong''); 
Jiashan Zhongsheng Metal Products Co., Ltd. (``Jiashan Zhongsheng''); 
Jiaxing Xinyue Standard Part Co., Ltd. (``Jiaxing Xinyue''); Suntec 
Industries Co., Ltd. (``Suntec Industries''); and Shanghai Prime 
Machinery Co., Ltd. (``Shanghai Prime'').\3\ Petitioner was the only 
party to request a review of these companies.

Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 78 FR 
33052, 33056-8 (June 3, 2013) (``Initiation Notice'').
    \2\ See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 78 FR 
53128, 53130 (August 28, 2013) (``August Initiation Notice'') at 
footnote 6. Moreover, in August Initiation Notice at footnote 5, the 
Department intended to state that ``{i{time} f one of the companies 
for which a review was requested does not qualify for a separate 
rate, all other exporters of Certain Steel Threaded Rod from the PRC 
who have not qualified for a separate rate are deemed to be covered 
by this review as part of the single PRC entity of which the named 
exporters are a part.''
    \3\ We note that there are additional companies for which all 
review requests were withdrawn within the 90 day period. See Letter 
to the Department from Petitioner, Re: Certain Steel Threaded Rod 
from the People's Republic of China: Petitioners' Withdrawal of 
Review Requests for Certain Companies, (July 5, 2013). These 
additional companies for which all review requests were withdrawn do 
not have a separate rate from a prior segment of this proceeding. We 
intend to address the disposition of these companies in the 
preliminary results of this review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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. 
Petitioner's requests for review of CPI, Gem Year, Haiyan Julong, 
Jiashan Zhongsheng, Jiaxing Xinyue, Suntec Industries, and Shanghai 
Prime were withdrawn within the 90-day period. Because Petitioner's 
requests for review were timely withdrawn and because no other party 
requested a review of CPI, Gem Year, Haiyan Julong, Jiashan Zhongsheng, 
Jiaxing Xinyue, Suntec Industries, and Shanghai Prime, and each have 
separate rates from a prior segment of the proceeding, in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are partially rescinding this review with 
respect to these companies.

Assessment Rates

    The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.\4\ 
Because CPI, Gem Year, Haiyan Julong, Jiashan Zhongsheng, Jiaxing 
Xinyue, Suntec Industries, and Shanghai Prime have a separate rate from 
a prior segment of this proceeding, 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 orders (``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 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.
    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: September 6, 2013.
Christian Marsh,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations.
