SUMMARY:

On May 27, 2004, in response to timely requests from respondents subject to the order on certain automotive replacement glass (“ARG”) windshields from the People's Republic of China (“PRC”), in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”), the Department of Commerce (“Department”) published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of this antidumping duty administrative review of sales by certain exporters/producers. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 69 FR 30282 (May 27, 2004) (“Initiation Notice”).

Background

On April 4, 2002, the Department published in the Federal Register the antidumping duty order on ARG windshields from PRC. See Antidumping Duty Order: Automotive Replacement Glass Windshields From the People's Republic of China, 67 FR 16087 (April 4, 2002). On April 1, 2004, the Department published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on ARG windshields from the PRC for the period April 1, 2003, through March 31, 2004. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation: Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 69 FR 17129 (April 1, 2004). On April 24, 2004, Dongguan Kongwan and Peaceful City requested an administrative review of its sales to the United States during the period of review (“POR”). On April 26, 2004, Fuyao requested an administrative review of its sales to the United States during the POR. The petitioners in the original investigation did not request an administrative review of any parties. On May 27, 2004, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of the initiation of the antidumping duty administrative review of ARG from the PRC for the period April 1, 2003 through March 31, 2004. See Initiation Notice.

On June 14, 2003, the Department issued antidumping duty questionnaires to the respondents, including Dongguan Kongwan, Peaceful City, and Fuyao. On July 8, 2004, Fuyao submitted a letter to the Department withdrawing its request for an administrative review of sales and entries of subject merchandise it exported. On July 12, 2004, Dongguan Kongwan and Peaceful City submitted a letter to the Department withdrawing their requests for an administrative review of sales and entries of subject merchandise which they exported.

Rescission of Review

Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party that requested a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of notice of initiation of requested review. Dongguan Kongwan, Peaceful City, and Fuyao withdrew their respective requests for review within the 90-day time limit and no other party requested reviews with respect to these companies. Accordingly, we are rescinding this administrative review as to those companies and will issue appropriate assessment instructions to the U.S. Bureau of Customs and Border Protection with respect to exports from Dongguan Kongwan, Peaceful City, and Fuyao for the period April 1, 2003, through March 31, 2004. The Department will continue its review of other exporters/producers as announced in the Initiation Notice. See 69 FR 30282.
