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

Rescission of Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), Commerce will rescind an 
administrative review ``in whole or in part, if a party that requested 
a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of 
publication of notice of initiation of the requested review.'' All 
respondents withdrew their requests for review within 90-days of the 
publication date of the Initiation Notice. Because we received no other 
requests for review of the respondents, and no other requests for the 
review of the order on truck and bus tires from China with respect to 
other companies subject to the order, we are rescinding the 
administrative review of the order in its entirety, in accordance with 
19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).

Assessment

    Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to 
assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of truck and bus 
tires from China during the POR at rates equal to the cash deposit rate 
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). Commerce intends to issue appropriate assessment 
instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice in the 
Federal Register.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a final reminder to importers 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 Commerce's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). 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 the terms of an APO is a sanctionable 
violation.
    This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 
751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).

    Dated: June 25, 2020.
James Maeder,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations.
