On October 1, 1999, the Department published in the Federal Register (64 FR 53318) a notice of initiation of administrative review with respect to AHMSA for that period. The Start Printed Page 6360petitioners withdrew their request for a review on December 21, 1999; AHMSA withdrew its request on December 28, 1999.

Rescission of Review

Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an administrative review if a party that requested the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review.
