The Department initiated the instant review on December 23, 2014 and Petitioners withdrew their request on March 23, 2015, which is within the 90-day period and thus is timely.

Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of the ADs occurred and the subsequent increase in the amount of ADs assessed.
