CORRECTION

    On May 20, 2003, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published in the Federal Register the Notice of Final Determination of 
Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Saccharin From the People's Republic of 
China (68 FR 27530) (Final Determination). In the Final Determination, 
the Department inadvertently typed an incorrect rate for the People's 
Republic of China (PRC)-wide rate. The PRC-wide rate of 329.94 percent, 
as set forth in the Final Determination of Saccharin from the People's 
Republic of China: Analysis of Adverse Facts Available Rate, Memorandum 
from Javier Barrientos, through Mark Hoadley, to the File (May 12, 
2003), and its attachments, is the correct PRC-wide rate, rather than 
the rate of 329.33 percent published in the Final Determination.
    Thus, we are issuing this amended final in accordance with section 
351.224(e) of the Department's regulations, which states that the 
Department will correct any ministerial error by amending the final 
determination. See 19 CFR 351.224(e). Under the regulations, a 
ministerial error includes mistakes in ``addition, subtraction, or 
other arithmetic function, clerical error resulting from inaccurate 
copying, duplication, or the like.'' See 19 CFR 351.224(f). Therefore, 
the clerical error in the PRC-wide rate in the Final Determination 
qualifies as a ministerial error and will be corrected in accordance 
with section 351.224(e) of the Department's regulations.

Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, 
as amended (the Act), we are directing the U.S. Bureau of Customs and 
Border Protection (BCBP) to continue to suspend liquidation of all 
entries of saccharin from the PRC. For the PRC-wide entity, the BCBP 
shall require a cash deposit or the posting of a bond based on the 
estimated weighted-average dumping margin shown above. These 
suspension-of-liquidation instructions will remain in effect until 
further notice.

International Trade Commission Notification

    In accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, we have notified the 
International Trade Commission of our amended determination.
    We are issuing and publishing this determination in accordance with 
sections 735(d) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the Act).

    Dated: June 6, 2003.
Joseph A. Spetrini,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
