25, 2008. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty

(April 25, 2008).
    On July 21, 2008, petitioner timely withdrew its request for review 
for all companies except Baoding Mantong Fine Chemistry Co., Ltd. 
(``Baoding'') and Nantong Dongchang Chemical Industry Corp. 
(``Nantong'').

Partial Rescission of the Administrative Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR Sec.  351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind 
an administrative review under this section, in whole or in part, if a 
party that requested a review withdraws the request within 90 days of 
the date of publication of notice of initiation of the requested 
review. The Secretary may extend this time limit if the Secretary 
decides that it is reasonable to do so. See 19 CFR Sec.  351.213(d)(1). 
Petitioner withdrew its requests for review for all companies except 
Baoding and Nantong within the 90-day time limit. No other company had 
requested a review of these companies. Therefore, in response to the 
withdrawal of requests for administrative reviews by petitioner, the 
Department hereby rescinds the administrative review of the antidumping 
duty order on glycine from the PRC for the period March 1, 2007, 
through February 29, 2008, for A.H.A. International Company, Ltd.; Amol 
Biotech Limited; Antai Bio-Tech Co. Limited; Beijing Jian Li

Shanghai Freemen Lifescience Co., Ltd.; Sinosweet Co., Ltd.; Suzhou 
Everich Imp. & Exp. Co., Ltd.; Taigene Global Enterprises Ltd.; Tianjin 
Tiancheng Pharmaceutical Co.; and Wenda Co., Ltd. Because those 
companies for which we are rescinding this review do not have separate 
rates at this time (and thus remain part of the PRC-wide entity), the 
Department will issue assessment instructions upon the completion of 
this administrative review.
    This notice serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (``APO'') of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR Sec.  351.305(a)(3). Timely written 
notification of the return or destruction of APO materials or 
conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to 
comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a sanctionable 
violation.
    This notice is published in accordance with section 777(i)(1) of 
the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR Sec.  351.213(d)(4).
