Comment Requested This Notice of Intent initiates the scoping process, which guides the development of the EIS. At this stage of the planning process, site-specific public comments are being requested to determine the scope of the analysis, and identify significant issues and alternatives to the Proposed Action. The estimated date for issuance of the draft environmental impact statement is May 2006. Scoping Process The Forest Service, in conjunction with Montana State agencies, will hold public scoping meetings in Libby, Montana, Bonners Ferry, Idaho; and noxon, Montana during the week of August 15, 2005. Specific location and time of the meetings will be published in the local newspapers approximately one week prior to the meeting date. A scoping document is available upon request or an electronic copy may be viewed at: http://www.fs.fed.us/rl/ kootenai/projects/montanore. Early Notice of Importance of Public Participation in Subsequent Environmental Review A draft EIS will be prepared for comment. The comment period on the draft EIS ends 60 days from the date the Environmental Protection Agency publishes the notice of availability in the Federal Register. The Forest Service believes, at this early stage, it is important to give reviewers notice of several court rulings related to the public participation in the environmental review process. First, reviewers of a draft EIS must structure their participation in the environmental review of the proposal so that it is meaningful and alerts an agency to the reviewer’s position and contentions. Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Corp. v. NRDC, 435 U.S. 519, 553 (1978). Also, VerDate jul<14>2003 18:32 Jul 13, 2005 Jkt 205001 environmental objections that could be raised at the draft EIS stage but that are not raised until after completion of the final EIS may be waived or dismissed by the courts. City of Angoon v. Hodel, 803 F.2d 1016, 1022 (9th Cir. 1986) and Wisconsin Heritages, Inc. v. Harris, 490 F. Supp. 1334, 1338 (E.D. Wis. 1980). Because of these court rulings, it is very important that those interested in this Proposed Action participate by the close of the 60 day comment period so that substantive comments and objections are made available to the Forest Service at a time when it can meaningfully consider and respond to them in the final EIS. To assist the Forest Service in identifying and considering issues and concerns on the Proposed Action, comments on the draft EIS should be as specific as possible. It is also helpful if comments refer to specific pages or chapters of the draft EIS. Comments may also address the adequacy of the draft EIS or the merits of the alternatives formulated and discussed in the statement. Reviewers may wish to refer to the Council on Environmental Quality Regulations for implementing the procedural provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act at 40 CFR 1503.3 in addressing these points. Comments received, including the names and addresses of those who comment, will be considered part of the public record on this proposal, and will be available for public inspection.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On June 18, 1998, the Department published the final results of administrative reviews of the antidumping duty orders on antifriction bearings (other than tapered roller bearings) and parts thereof from Japan for the period May 1, 1996, through April 30, 1997. See Antifriction Bearings (Other Than Tapered Roller Bearings) and Parts Thereof from France, et al.; Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews, 63 FR 33320 (June 18, 1998). NSK Ltd. and NSK Corporation (hereafter ‘‘NSK’’) filed a lawsuit challenging the final results. On July 8, 2002, the CIT affirmed the Department’s decision to classify NSK’s repacking expenses as a selling expense E:\FR\FM\14JYN1.SGM 14JYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 134 / Thursday, July 14, 2005 / Notices under section 772(d)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). See NSK Ltd. v. United States, 217 F. Supp 2d. 1291 (CIT 2002). NSK appealed the CIT’s judgment to the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC). The CAFC vacated and remanded the Department’s decision to classify NSK’s repacking expenses as selling expenses and not movement expenses under section 772(d)(1)(B) of the Act. On February 18, 2005, pursuant to the CAFC’s decision, the CIT remanded this case to the Department to revisit its classification of U.S. repacking expenses as selling expenses and provide an explanation for the inconsistent treatment of U.S. repacking expense, U.S. warehousing expense, and U.S. expense for shipping from warehouse to customer. See NSK Ltd. v. United States, Consol. Court No. 98–07– 02527, slip op. 05–26 (CIT 2005). In accordance with the CIT’s remand order in NSK Ltd., slip op. 05–26, the Department filed its remand results on May 18, 2005. On June 27, 2005, the CIT affirmed the Department’s final results of remand redetermination in their entirety. See NSK Ltd., slip op. 05–77. The changes to our calculations with respect to NSK resulted in a change in the weighted–average margin for ball bearings (BBs) from 2.35 percent to 2.34 percent and a change in the weighted– average margin for cylindrical roller bearings (CRBs) from 2.21 percent to 2.19 percent for the period of review. Accordingly, absent an appeal, or, if appealed, upon a ‘‘conclusive’’ decision by the CAFC which is consistent with the CIT’s decision, we will amend our final results of these reviews to reflect the recalculation of margins for NSK. Suspension of Liquidation The CAFC held that the Department must publish notice of a decision of the CIT or the CAFC which is not in harmony with the Department’s determination. See The Timken Company v. United States, 893 F.2d 337, 341 (CAFC 1990). Publication of this notice fulfills that obligation. The CAFC also held that, in such a case, the Department must suspend liquidation until there is a ‘‘conclusive’’ decision in the action. Id. Therefore, the Department must suspend liquidation pending the expiration of the period to appeal the CIT’s June 27, 2005, decision affirming the Department’s remand results or pending a final decision of the CAFC if that decision is appealed. Because entries of the BBs and CRBs from Japan produced by, exported to, or imported into the United States by NSK are currently being suspended pursuant to the court’s injunction order in effect, VerDate jul<14>2003 18:32 Jul 13, 2005 Jkt 205001 the Department does not need to order U.S. Customs and Border Protection to suspend liquidation of affected entries.

Antifriction Bearings (Other Than Tapered Roller Bearings) and 
Parts Thereof from Japan: Notice of Court Decision Not in Harmony

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce
SUMMARY: On June 27, 2005, the United States Court of International 
Trade (CIT) affirmed the Department of Commerce's (the Department's) 
redetermination on remand of the final results of the antidumping duty 
administrative reviews on antifriction bearings (other than tapered 
roller bearings) and parts thereof from Japan. See NSK Ltd. v. United 
States, Consol. Court No. 98-07-02527, slip op. 05-77 (CIT 2005). The 
Department is now issuing this notice of court decision not in harmony.

EFFECTIVE DATE: July 14, 2005.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION: Yang Jin Chun or Richard Rimlinger, AD/CVD 
Operations, Office 5, Import Administration, U.S. Department of 
Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 
20230; telephone: (202) 482-5760 or (202) 482-4477, respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On June 18, 1998, the Department published the final results of 
administrative reviews of the antidumping duty orders on antifriction 
bearings (other than tapered roller bearings) and parts thereof from 
Japan for the period May 1, 1996, through April 30, 1997. See 
Antifriction Bearings (Other Than Tapered Roller Bearings) and Parts 
Thereof from France, et al.; Final Results of Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Reviews, 63 FR 33320 (June 18, 1998). NSK Ltd. and NSK 
Corporation (hereafter ``NSK'') filed a lawsuit challenging the final 
results. On July 8, 2002, the CIT affirmed the Department's decision to 
classify NSK's repacking expenses as a selling expense

[[Page 40689]]

under section 772(d)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act). See NSK Ltd. v. United States, 217 F. Supp 2d. 1291 (CIT 2002). 
NSK appealed the CIT's judgment to the United States Court of Appeals 
for the Federal Circuit (CAFC). The CAFC vacated and remanded the 
Department's decision to classify NSK's repacking expenses as selling 
expenses and not movement expenses under section 772(d)(1)(B) of the 
Act. On February 18, 2005, pursuant to the CAFC's decision, the CIT 
remanded this case to the Department to revisit its classification of 
U.S. repacking expenses as selling expenses and provide an explanation 
for the inconsistent treatment of U.S. repacking expense, U.S. 
warehousing expense, and U.S. expense for shipping from warehouse to 
customer. See NSK Ltd. v. United States, Consol. Court No. 98-07-02527, 
slip op. 05-26 (CIT 2005). In accordance with the CIT's remand order in 
NSK Ltd., slip op. 05-26, the Department filed its remand results on 
May 18, 2005. On June 27, 2005, the CIT affirmed the Department's final 
results of remand redetermination in their entirety. See NSK Ltd., slip 
op. 05-77.
    The changes to our calculations with respect to NSK resulted in a 
change in the weighted-average margin for ball bearings (BBs) from 2.35 
percent to 2.34 percent and a change in the weighted-average margin for 
cylindrical roller bearings (CRBs) from 2.21 percent to 2.19 percent 
for the period of review. Accordingly, absent an appeal, or, if 
appealed, upon a ``conclusive'' decision by the CAFC which is 
consistent with the CIT's decision, we will amend our final results of 
these reviews to reflect the recalculation of margins for NSK.

Suspension of Liquidation

    The CAFC held that the Department must publish notice of a decision 
of the CIT or the CAFC which is not in harmony with the Department's 
determination. See The Timken Company v. United States, 893 F.2d 337, 
341 (CAFC 1990). Publication of this notice fulfills that obligation. 
The CAFC also held that, in such a case, the Department must suspend 
liquidation until there is a ``conclusive'' decision in the action. Id. 
Therefore, the Department must suspend liquidation pending the 
expiration of the period to appeal the CIT's June 27, 2005, decision 
affirming the Department's remand results or pending a final decision 
of the CAFC if that decision is appealed.
    Because entries of the BBs and CRBs from Japan produced by, 
exported to, or imported into the United States by NSK are currently 
being suspended pursuant to the court's injunction order in effect, the 
Department does not need to order U.S. Customs and Border Protection to 
suspend liquidation of affected entries. The Department will not order 
the lifting of the suspension of liquidation on entries of the BBs and 
CRBs made during the review period before a court decision in this 
lawsuit becomes final and conclusive.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
section 516A(c)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: July 8, 2005.

Acting Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
