The Applicable Statute
Unless otherwise indicated, all citations to the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”), are references to the provisions in effect as of January 1, 1995, the effective date of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act. In addition, unless otherwise indicated, all citations to the Department of Commerce's (the Department's) regulations are to the regulations at 19 CFR part 351 (2001).
On May 31, 1001, NMB Singapore Ltd., Pelmec Industries (Pte) Ltd., and NMB Technologies Corporation (collectively “NMB/Pelmec”) requested that the Department conduct an administrative review of its shipments of ball bearings for the period May 1, 2000, through April 30, 2001, and SKF USA Inc., SKF France, and Sarma (collectively “SKF”) also requested that the Department conduct an administrative review of its shipments of spherical plain bearings during the period May 1, 2000, through April 30, 2001. On June 19, 2001, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of these administrative reviews with respect to NMB/Pelmec and SKF, both for the period of May 1, 2000, through April 30, 2001. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocations in Part, 66 FR 32934-32936 (June 19, 2001).
On August 28, 2001, NMB/Pelmec withdrew its request for a review. Similarly, on September 7, 2001, SKF withdrew its request for a review. Furthermore, both NMB/Pelmec and SKF asked the Department to rescind the administrative reviews.
Rescission of Reviews
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. Because NMB/Pelmec and SKF submitted their requests for rescission within the 90-day time limit and there were no requests for review from other interested parties, we are rescinding these reviews. As such, we will issue appropriate appraisement instructions directly to the Customs Service. This notice is an accordance with section 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).Start Signature
