The period of review is July 1, 2001, through June 30, 2002. The requests for administrative review were made by two exporters of the subject merchandise, Guangdong Chemicals Import and Export Co. and Tianjin Chemicals Import and Export Co.

On July 1, 2002, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of “Opportunity to Request an Administrative Review” of the antidumping duty order on sebacic acid from the People's Republic of China (PRC). See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review, 67 FR 44172 (July 1, 2002). On July 10, 2002, two exporters, Guangdong Chemicals Import and Export Co. (Guangdong) and Tianjin Chemicals Import and Export Co. (Tianjin), requested an administrative review of this antidumping duty order on sebacic acid from the PRC.
In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(1), we initiated this review on August 27, 2002, covering the period of July 1, 2001, through June 30, 2002. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 67 FR 55000 (Aug. 27, 2002). On September 10, 2002, both exporters withdrew their requests for administrative review.
Rescission of Review
Guangdong and Tianjin timely withdrew their requests for administrative review for the above-referenced period on September 10, 2002. Therefore, because no other interested party requested a review of either Guangdong or Tianjin for this period of review, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1) and consistent with our practice, we are rescinding this review of the antidumping order on sebacic acid from the PRC for the period of July 1, 2001, through June 30, 2002. This notice is published in accordance with section 751 of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).Start Signature
