SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
Background
    On June 3, 2019, Commerce published a notice of opportunity to
request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on cold-
drawn mechanical tubing from Switzerland for the period of review
November 22, 2017, through May 31, 2019.\1\ Pursuant to a request from
ArcelorMittal Tubular Products LLC, Michigan Seamless Tube, LLC, PTC
Alliance Corp., and Webco Industries, Inc., (the petitioners),\2\ in
accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended
(the Act), and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), Commerce initiated an
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on cold-drawn
mechanical tubing from Switzerland on July 29, 2019, with respect to
three companies: Benteler Rothrist AG (Benteler Rothrist); Mubea
Pr[auml]zisionsstahlrohr AG (Mubea), and Jansen AG (Jansen).\3\ On
October 23, 2019, the petitioners timely withdrew their request for an
administrative review with respect to all entities for which they had
requested a review.\4\

Switzerland--Domestic Industry's Request for First Administrative
Review,'' dated July 1, 2019.
    \3\ See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty
Administrative Reviews, 84 FR 36572 (July 29, 2019).
    \4\ See Petitioners' Letter, ``Cold-Drawn Mechanical Tubing from
Switzerland--Domestic Industry's Withdrawal of Request for First
Administrative Review,'' dated October 23, 2019.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
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 date
of the notice of initiation of the requested review. The petitioners,
who were the only parties to request a review, withdrew their request
within the 90-day deadline. Accordingly, we are rescinding the
administrative review of cold-drawn mechanical tubing from Switzerland
for the period November 22, 2017, through May 31, 2019, in its
entirety.
Assessment
    Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to
assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of cold-drawn
mechanical tubing from Switzerland. Antidumping duties shall be
assessed 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 the only reminder to importers whose entries
will be liquidated as a result of this rescission 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 presumption that
reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent
assessment of double antidumping duties.
Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order
    This notice also serves as the only reminder to all 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 terms of an APO is a sanctionable
violation.
Notification to Interested Parties
    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: November 1, 2019.
James Maeder,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty
Operations.
