Partial Rescission of Review

On May 24, 2007, Ugitech timely withdrew its request for an administrative review of its sales during the above-referenced period. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party who requested the review withdraws the request within ninety days of the date of publication of notice of initiation of the requested review. Because Ugitech has withdrawn its request for review within the 90-day period and no other party requested a review of Ugitech, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are rescinding this review with respect to Ugitech.

The Department will issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 15 days after the publication of this notice. The Department will direct CBP to assess antidumping duties at the cash deposit rate in effect on the date of entry for entries during the period March 1, 2006, through February 28, 2007.

This notice is published in accordance with section 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
