The Applicable Statute
Unless otherwise indicated, all citations to the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), are references to the provisions effective January 1, 1995, the effective date of the amendments made to the Act by the Uruguay Round Agreements Act. In addition, unless otherwise indicated, all citations to the Department of Commerce's (the Department)'s regulations are to 19 CFR part 351 (2001).
On October 1, 2001, the Department published in the Federal Register (66 FR 49923) a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping order regarding extruded rubber thread from Malaysia for the period October 1, 2000, through September 30, 2001. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b)(2), on October 31, 2001, two producers/exporters of extruded rubber thread requested a review of the antidumping duty order on extruded rubber thread from Malaysia (i.e., Filati Lastex Sdn. Bhd. Start Printed Page 18173(Filati) and Heveafil Sdn. Bhd. (Heveafil)).
In November 2001, the Department initiated an administrative review for each of these companies (66 FR 58432 (Nov. 21, 2001)) and issued questionnaires to them.
On February 8, 2002, Filati withdrew its request for review.
On February 15, 2002, Heveafil requested an extension of the 90-day limit to withdraw its request for a review until March 29, 2002. We granted this extension on February 19, 2002, and on March 27, 2002, Heveafil withdrew its request for review.
Rescission of Review
Filati and Heveafil withdrew their requests for an administrative review for the above-referenced period on February 8 and March 27, 2002, respectively. Therefore, because no other interested party requested a review of Filati or Heveafil for this POR, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1) and consistent with our practice, we are rescinding this review of the antidumping duty order on extruded rubber thread from Malaysia for the period of October 1, 2000, through September 30, 2001. This notice is published in accordance with section 751 of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).Start Signature
