On September 2, 2008, we sent our Draft Notification of Rescission to interested parties and invited them to comment on our intent to rescind the administrative review with regard to Ispat, JSW, and Tata. No comments were received. Consequently, the Department continues to treat Ispat, JSW, and Tata as non–shippers for the purpose of this review. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), the Department may rescind an administrative review with respect to a particular exporter or producer if the Department concludes that during the POR there were no entries, exports, or sales of the subject merchandise. Because there is no record evidence of entries, exports or sales of the subject merchandise by Ispat, JSW and Tata, we are rescinding this review in part. As a result of the rescission of the administrative review, in part, with respect to Ispat, JSW, and Tata, only one respondent, Essar, remains in this review.
