In the instant case, the entry made by Valin Xiangtan covered by the new shipper review is also covered by the period of review of the administrative review that the Department initiated on December 24, 2008. See 73 FR 79055. Thus, because the Department is conducting an administrative review and a new shipper review that covers the same merchandise, after consultation with the exporter,2 the Department is rescinding the new shipper review for Valin Xiangtan. We will review Valin Xiangtan’s sale covered by the NSR during the course of the administrative review.
