SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE Correction sroberts on DSKD5P82C1PROD with NOTICES Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–1655, (202) 482–4031, or (202) 482–2312, respectively. International Trade Administration On August 6, 2010, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) released the preliminary determination of the investigation for drill pipe from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) to interested parties. See Drill Pipe from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less than Fair Value and Affirmative Determination of Critical Circumstances, and Postponement of Final Determination, signed August 5, 2010 (‘‘Preliminary Determination’’). Subsequent to the announcement and release of the Preliminary Determination, the Department identified an inadvertent error. Specifically, the Preliminary Determination incorrectly stated that the Department determined a weightedaverage dumping margin of 7.64 percent for Baoshan Iron & Steel Co. (‘‘Baoshan’’) and a dumping margin for the separate rate respondents 1 of 106.82 percent. However, the correct rate, as noted in Baoshan’s Analysis Memorandum is 2.66 percent. See Memorandum to the File, through Scot T. Fullerton, from Susan Pulongbarit, regarding Antidumping Investigation of Drill Pipe from the People’s Republic of China: Analysis for the Preliminary Determination of Baoshan Iron & Steel Co., Ltd., dated August 5, 2010. Because we used Baoshan’s rate to calculate the separate rate margin, we have also corrected the average dumping margin for the separate rate respondents to 104.33 percent. To resolve these discrepancies, the Preliminary Determination is hereby corrected to identify Baoshan’s weighted-average dumping margin as 2.66 percent and the average dumping margin for the separate rate respondents as 104.33 percent. We are publishing this correction simultaneously with the Preliminary Determination. This notice is published in accordance with section 777(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended. [A–427–001] 1 The separate rate respondents are Shanxi Fenglei Drilling Tools Co., Ltd., Jiangsu Shuguang Huayang Drilling Tool, Co. Ltd., and Jiangyin LongBright Drill Pipe Manufacturing Co., Ltd.

    The products under review are shipments of crystalline sorbitol. 
Crystalline sorbitol is a polyol produced by the catalytic

    19 CFR 351.213(d)(1) of the Department's regulations provides that 
the Department will rescind an administrative review if the party that 
requested the review withdraws its request for review within 90 days of

reasonable to extend the time limit for withdrawing the request. CP and

responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation

assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

    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 351.305(a)(3). Timely written
