August 31, 1999. The Department is rescinding this review after receiving a timely withdrawal from respondents of their request for review.

EFFECTIVE DATE: January 13, 2000.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: James Terpstra or Frank Thomson, Group II, Office 4, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone (202) 482-3965 and (202) 482-4793, respectively.

The Applicable Statute

Unless otherwise indicated, all citations to the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''), are references to the provisions effective January 1, 1995, the effective date of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act (``URAA''). In addition, unless otherwise indicated, all citations to the Department's regulations are to the regulations at 19 CFR Part 351 (1999).

Background

On September 30, 1999, respondents requested that the Department conduct an administrative review of the subject merchandise it exported from Korea for the period March 5, 1998 through August 31, 1999.

On November 4, 1999, the Department published in the Federal Register (64 FR 60161) a notice of initiation of administrative review with respect to respondents for the period March 5, 1998 through August 31, 1999. On November 18, 1999, respondents requested that they be allowed to withdraw their request for a review and that the review be terminated.

Rescission of Review

Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an administrative review if a party that requested the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. Because respondents' request for termination was submitted within the 90-day time limit, and there were no requests for review from other interested parties, we are rescinding this review. We will issue appropriate appraisement instructions directly to the U.S. Customs Service.

This notice is in accordance with section 771(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).

Dated: January 7, 2000. Holly A. Kuga, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary, Import Administration, Group II.
