On March 29, 2000, Rizhao Riyuan, an exporter of the subject merchandise, requested a new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on crawfish from the PRC in accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(b). On June 1, 2000, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), we initiated a new shipper review of this order for the period September 1, 1999 through February 29, 2000. On July 11, 2000, Rizhao Riyuan withdrew its request for this review.
Recission of Review
The Department's regulations at 19 CFR 351.214(f)(1) provide that a party may withdraw its request for a new shipper review within 60 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. Rizhao Riyuan's request for withdrawal was made within the 60 day period. Rescission of this review would not prejudice any party in this proceeding, as Rizhao Riyuan would continue to be included in the PRC-wide rate to which it was subject at the time of its request for this new shipper review. Rizhao Riyuan is the only party that requested a review of its sales for the period September 1, 1999 through February 29, 2000, and no other party has objected to its withdrawal of that request. Therefore, we are rescinding this review. This determination is issued and published in accordance with section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1675) and 19 CFR 351.214(f).Start Signature
