    On December 30, 2011, the Department published in the Federal 
Register a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on PET Film from Brazil for the period November 
1, 2010 through October 31, 2011. See Initiation of Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation 
in Part, 76 FR 82268 (December 30, 2011). This review covers Terphane, 
Inc. and Terphane, Ltda. Petitioners were the only party to request a

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by this order are all gauges of raw, pre-
treated, or primed PET film, whether extruded or co-extruded. Excluded 
are metallized films and other finished films that have had at least 
one of their surfaces modified by the application of a performance-
enhancing resinous or inorganic layer more than 0.00001 inches thick. 
Also excluded is roller transport cleaning film which has at least one 
of its surfaces modified by application of 0.5 micrometers of SBR 
latex. Tracing and drafting film is also excluded. PET film is 
classifiable under subheading 3920.62.00.90 of the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). While HTSUS subheadings are 
provided for convenience and customs purposes, our written description 
of the scope of these orders is dispositive.

Rescission of Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1) of the Department's regulations, 
the Department will rescind an administrative review if the party that 
requested the review withdraws its request for review within 90 days of 
the publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review, or 
withdraws at a later date if the Department exercises its discretion to 
extend the time limit for withdrawing the request. Petitioners withdrew 
their request within the 90-day deadline, and no other party requested 
a review. Therefore, we are rescinding the review with respect to all 


    The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. 
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.


    This notice serves as a final reminder to importers for whom this 
review is being rescinded of their responsibility under 19 CFR 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 Secretary's presumption that reimbursement of the 

[[Page 31834]]

duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping 
    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/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 section 
777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 

    Dated: May 14, 2012.
