The Department's regulations, at 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), provide that 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. Since all parties requesting review withdrew their requests for an administrative review within the 90-day deadline, the Department is rescinding this administrative review.
