in part and to defer the initiation of an administrative review for one antidumping duty order.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Holly A. Kuga, Office of AD/CVD Enforcement, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230, telephone: (202) 482-4737.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

The Department has received timely requests, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b) (2001), for administrative reviews of various antidumping and countervailing duty orders and findings with August anniversary dates. The Department also received a timely request to revoke in part the antidumping duty order on Pure Magnesium from Canada.

During the last anniversary month, the Department failed to note that we received a timely request to revoke in part the antidumping duty order on Canned Pineapple from Thailand (67 FR 55000). In addition, the Department received from the same party a request to defer for one year the initiation of the July 1, 2001 through June 30, 2002 adminstrative review of this exporter in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(c). The Department received no objection to this request from any party pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(c)(1)(ii).

Initiation of Reviews

In accordance with sections 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), we are initiating administrative reviews of the following antidumping and countervailing duty orders and findings. We intend to issue the final results of these reviews not later than August 31, 2003. On August 27, 2002, (67 FR 55000) the Department inadvertently initiated an administrative review with respect to one exporter of Canned Pineapple Fruit from Thailand. We are now rescinding that review and, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(c), deferring for one year the initiation of the July 1, 2001 through June 30, 2002 administrative review of the antidumping duty order on Canned Pineapple Fruit from Thailand with respect to that exporter.
