    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    Background

    On April 16, 2018, based on a timely request for review by M&B Metal Products Company, Inc. (the petitioner),[1] Commerce published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the CVD order on steel wire garment hangers from Vietnam covering the period January 1, 2017, through December 31, 2017.[2] On April 24, 2018, the petitioner withdrew its request for all companies listed in its request and the Initiation Notice.[3] No other party requested a Start Printed Page 27311review of these producers and/or exporters of subject merchandise.

    Rescission of 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 publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. In this case, the petitioner timely withdrew its request by the 90-day deadline, and no other party requested an administrative review of the CVD order. As a result, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are rescinding the administrative review of the CVD order on steel wire garment hangers from Vietnam for the period January 1, 2017, through December 31, 2017, in its entirety.

    Assessment

    Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess CVDs on all appropriate entries. Because Commerce is rescinding this administrative review in its entirety, the entries to which this administrative review pertained shall be assessed CVDs at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated CVDs 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 appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication of this notice in the Federal Register.

    Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as a final 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(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.

    This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
