See Antidumping or Countervailing Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 69 FR 39903. On August 24, 2004, pursuant to a request made by TKAST, the Department initiated an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on SSSS in coils from Italy. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 69 FR 52857 (August 30, 2004). On September 15, 2004, TKAST timely withdrew its request for an administrative review of SSSS in coils from Italy.

Rescission of Review

If a party that requested a review withdraws its request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review, the Secretary will rescind the review pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1) of the Department's regulations. In the instant proceeding, TKAST withdrew its request for an administrative review within 90 days from the publication date of the notice of initiation. No other interested party requested a review. Therefore, the Department is rescinding the initiation of this administrative review of the antidumping duty order on SSSS in coils from Italy.

Notification to Importers

Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary's assumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the Start Printed Page 57266disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3) of the Department's regulations. Timely written notification of the return/destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.
