Intent to Rescind in Part Section 351.213(d)(3) of the Department’s regulations provides that the Department may rescind an administrative review, in whole or only with respect to a particular exporter or producer, if the Secretary concludes that, during the period covered by the review, there were no entries, exports, or sales of the subject merchandise. On January 17, 2006, WSFC, and on January 20, 2006, Jinan Yipin, informed the Department that they did not sell subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. The Department reviewed data on entries under the order during the period of review from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’), and found no entries or sales of subject merchandise by WSFC or Jinan Yipin into the United States during the POR. See Memo to the File, CBP Packages, dated June 20, 2006. Therefore, absent the submission of any evidence that WSFC or Jinan Yipin had U.S. entries or sales of subject merchandise during the POR, the Department intends to rescind the administrative review with respect to these companies.
