SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
Background
 On February 3, 2020, Commerce published in the Federal Register a
notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the
antidumping duty order on stainless steel butt-weld pipe fittings from
Malaysia for the period February 1, 2019, through January 31, 2020.\1\
On February 28, 2020, Commerce received a timely request from Core Pipe
Products, Inc. and Taylor Forge Stainless, Inc. (the petitioners),
domestic producers of stainless steel butt-weld pipe fittings, for
administrative reviews of Pantech Stainless & Alloy Industries Sdn.
Bhd. (Pantech) and TSS Pipes & Fittings Industry Sdn. Bhd. (TSS),
exporters of stainless steel butt-weld pipe fittings.\2\ On March 2,
2020, Pantech and TSS filed timely requests for review of their own
respective companies.\3\ These requests were in accordance with section
751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR
351.213(b).

Rescission of Review
 Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), Commerce will rescind an
administrative review, in whole or in part, if the parties which
requested the review withdraw the request within 90 days of the date of
publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. On
April 24, 2020, Commerce tolled all deadlines in administrative reviews
by 50 days,\9\ extending the 90-day deadline for withdrawing requests
for review from July 7, 2020, to August 27, 2020. Therefore, all
parties that requested an administrative review withdrew their requests
for review for all companies within the applicable deadline.
Accordingly, we are rescinding in its entirety the administrative
review of the antidumping duty order on stainless steel butt-weld pipe
fittings from Malaysia covering the period February 1, 2019, through
January 31, 2020.

Assessment
 Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to
assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of stainless steel
butt-weld pipe fittings from Malaysia. 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). Commerce
intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days
after the date of 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 Orders
 This notice also serves as a final reminder to parties subject to
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility
concerning the disposition of proprietary information
[[Page 46069]]
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305. 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: July 24, 2020.
