On February 28, 2001, the Department received from DSM a request for an administrative review of the countervailing duty order on certain cut-to-length carbon-quality steel plate from Korea for the period July 26, 1999 through December 31, 2000. On March 22, 2001, the Department published in the Federal Register (65 FR 6587) a notice of “Initiation of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review” initiating the administrative review.
On June 15, 2001, respondent withdrew its request for review. The applicable regulation, 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), states that if a party that requested an administrative review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review, the Secretary will rescind the review. Because DSM requested that the Department withdraw the administrative review within the appropriate time period stated in 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), and it was the only party to request this review, we find it reasonable to accept the party's withdrawal of its request for review. Therefore, we are rescinding the review of the countervailing duty order on certain cut-to-length carbon-quality steel plate from the Republic of Korea for DSM covering the period July 26, 1999 through December 31, 2000.
This notice is issued and published in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4) and Section 777(i) of the Act.Start Signature
