Applicable Statute and Regulations

Unless otherwise indicated, all citations to the statute are references to the provisions effective January 1, 1995, the effective date of the amendments made to the Tariff Act of 1930 (the Act) by the Uruguay Round Agreements Act (URAA).

Background

On March 29, 2002, the Department received a request for an administrative review of the countervailing duty order on certain welded carbon steel pipe and tube from Turkey for the period January 1, 2001 through December 31, 2001. On April 24, 2002, the Department published in the Federal Register (64 FR 67846) a notice of initiation of the antidumping and countervailing duty administrative review on certain welded carbon steel pipe and tube from Turkey with respect to the respondent.

Rescission of Review

On June 4, 2002, the respondent timely 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. In this case, the respondent has withdrawn its request for the review within the 90-day period. No other party requested a review and we have received no other submissions regarding the respondent's withdrawal of its request for the review. Therefore, we are rescinding this review of the countervailing duty order on certain welded carbon steel pipe and tube from Turkey covering the period January 1, 2001 through December 31, 2001.

This notice is issued and published in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4) and 777(i) of the Act.
