Background

On May 1, 2015, the Department published the notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the order on PSF from Korea for the period of review May 1, 2014, through April 30, 2015.[1] On May 29, 2015, DAK Americas LLC and Auriga Polymers, Inc., the successor to Invista, S.a.r.L (collectively, the petitioners) requested that the Department conduct an administrative review of Huvis Corporation (Huvis) and Toray Chemical Korea, Inc (Toray).[2] On June 1, 2015, Huvis requested an administrative review of its POR sales.[3] On June 18, 2015, the petitioners withdrew their request for an administrative review of Huvis.[4] Huvis withdrew its request for an administrative review on June 19, 2015.[5] Pursuant to the remaining request, for Toray, and in accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), the Department published a notice initiating Start Printed Page 46541an administrative review solely of Toray.[6] The petitioners withdrew their request for an administrative review of Toray on July 13, 2015.[7]
