3 In the initiation notice published on March 26, 2004 (69 FR 15788), the review period for Certain Preserved Mushrooms from the People's Republic of China was incorrect. The correct review period is listed above.
4 This case was inadvertently listed in the “Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part” notice that published in the Federal Register on March 26, 2004 (69 FR 15788). Since the Department did not receive any requests for review of this case, there is no administrative review being conducted for the 1/1/03-12/31/03 period.

During any administrative review covering all or part of a period falling between the first and second or third and fourth anniversary of the publication of an antidumping duty order under § 351.211 or a determination under § 351.218(f)(4) to continue an order or suspended investigation (after sunset review), the Secretary, if requested by a domestic interested party within 30 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the review, will determine whether antidumping duties have been absorbed by an exporter or producer subject to the review if the subject merchandise is sold in the United States through an importer that is affiliated with such exporter or producer. The request must include the name(s) of the exporter or producer for which the inquiry is requested.

Interested parties must submit applications for disclosure under administrative protective orders in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305.

These initiations and this notice are in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1675(a)), and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i).
