SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In the Preliminary Results, the Department inadvertently indicated that it planned to rescind the request for review of the antidumping order for the POSCO Group in the Final Results. On December 28, 2006, the petitioners1 timely withdrew their request for an administrative review of the POSCO Group. It is the Department's practice to rescind an administrative review in a timely manner, in whole or part, if no other interested party submitted comments regarding the petitioners' timely withdrawal of their request for a review. See Notice of Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Tenth Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Certain Pasta from Italy, 72 FR 38060 (July 12, 2007), and also see Certain Pasta From Turkey: Notice of Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 69 FR 60356 (October 8, 2004). To facilitate the timely implementation of customs instructions, we are rescinding the review of the antidumping order for the POSCO Group.

Final Rescission of Administrative Review for the POSCO Group

As provided in 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), “{t}he Secretary will rescind an administrative review under this section, 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 the requested review.” The petitioners withdrew their request for an administrative review within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the instant administrative review and no other party requested an administrative review of the POSCO Group. No party commented on the petitioners' withdrawal. Therefore, the Department is rescinding the administrative review with respect to the POSCO Group.
