SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On December 1, 2005, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') published a notice of opportunity to request an 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain welded 
stainless steel pipe from Taiwan. See Antidumping or Countervailing 
Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request 
Administrative Review, 70 FR 72109 (December 1, 2005). On December 30, 
2005, Froch Enterprise (``Froch''), stating that it was formerly Jaung 
Yuann Enterprise Co., Ltd., timely requested that the Department 
conduct an administrative review of Froch. The Department published a 
notice of the initiation of the antidumping duty administrative review 
of certain welded stainless steel pipe from Taiwan for the period 
December 1, 2004, through November 30, 2005. See Initiation of 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request 
for Revocation in Part, 71 FR 5241 (February 1, 2006). On June 5, 2006, 
Froch withdrew its request for an administrative review.

Rescission of Review

    The Department's regulations at section 351.213(d)(1) provide that 
the Department will rescind an administrative review if the party that 
requested the review withdraws its request for review within 90 days of 
the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested 
review, or withdraws its request at a later date if the Department 
determines that it is reasonable to extend the time limit for 
withdrawing the request. Although Froch withdrew its request after the 
90-day deadline, the Department finds it reasonable to extend the 
withdrawal deadline because the Department has not yet devoted any 
significant time and resources to this review, and Froch was the only 
party to request a review.\1\ Further, we find that Froch's withdrawal 
does not constitute an abuse of our procedures. Therefore, we are 
rescinding this review of the antidumping duty order on certain welded 
stainless steel pipe from Taiwan covering the period December 1, 2004, 
through November 30, 2005. The Department will issue appropriate 
assessment instructions directly to U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
within 15 days of publication of this rescission.
