SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On October 18, 2004, Shakeproof, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), requested an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on helical spring lock washers from the PRC. On November 19, 2004, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), we initiated an administrative review of this order for the period October 1, 2003, through September 30, 2004. See Notice of Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 69 FR 67701. On January 31, 2005, Shakeproof withdrew its request for this review.

Rescission of Review

The Department's regulations at 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1) provide that the Department will rescind an administrative review if the party that requested the review withdraws its request for review within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review, or withdraws its request at a later date if the Department determines that it is reasonable to extend the time limit for withdrawing the request. Shakeproof was the only party to request this review and it withdrew its request within the 90-day period. Accordingly, this review is rescinded. The Department will issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to U.S. Customs and Border Protection within 15 days of publication of these final results of review.

Notification Regarding APOs

This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (“APO”) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. 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 terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to sanction.
