Withdrawal of Request for Antidumping Administrative Review: Certain 
New Pneumatic Off-the-Road Tires from China,'' dated November 20, 
2014.
    \4\ See Letter from GTC titled ``GTC Withdrawal of Request for 
Administrative Review: Sixth Administrative Review of Antidumping 
Duty Order on Certain New Pneumatic Off-the-Road Tires From The 
People's Republic Of China (Case No: A-570-912) (POR: September 1, 
2013-August 31, 2014),'' dated December 17, 2014.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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. Double 
Coin and GTC timely withdrew their requests for an administrative 
review on themselves; no other party requested a review of these 
companies.\5\ Accordingly, we are rescinding this review, in part, with 
respect to these companies, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ The Department will no longer consider the NME entity as an 
exporter conditionally subject to administrative reviews. See 
Antidumping Proceedings: Announcement of Change in Department 
Practice for Respondent Selection in Antidumping Duty Proceedings 
and Conditional Review of the Nonmarket Economy Entity in NME 
Antidumping Duty Proceedings, 78 FR 65963 (November 4, 2013) at 
65970.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment

    The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For 
the companies for which this review is rescinded, antidumping duties 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)(1)(i). 
The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions 
directly to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as the only 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review is being rescinded, as of the publication date of this notice, 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 and/or 
countervailing 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 and/or countervailing duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double and/or increased 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.

Notification to Interested Parties

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

    Dated: February 18, 2015.
Christian Marsh,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations.
