SUMMARY: On June 1, 2005, the Department of Commerce initiated and the International Trade Commission instituted a sunset review of the antidumping duty orders on antifriction bearings and parts thereof from France and Singapore. As a result of the review, the International Trade Commission determined that revocation of the order on spherical plain bearings and parts thereof from France and the order on ball bearings and parts thereof from Singapore would not be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time. Therefore, the Department of Commerce is revoking these two antidumping duty orders. EFFECTIVE DATE: July 11, 2005.

SUMMARY: On June 1, 2005, the Department of Commerce initiated and the 
International Trade Commission instituted a sunset review of the

France and Singapore. As a result of the review, the International 
Trade Commission determined that revocation of the order on spherical 
plain bearings and parts thereof from France and the order on ball 
bearings and parts thereof from Singapore would not be likely to lead 
to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the 
United States within a reasonably foreseeable time. Therefore, the 
Department of Commerce is revoking these two antidumping duty orders.

EFFECTIVE DATE: July 11, 2005.

Background

    On July 11, 2000, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published the continuation of the antidumping duty orders on certain 
bearings and parts thereof from France and Singapore resulting from the 
first sunset review of these orders. See Continuation of Antidumping 
Duty Orders: Certain Bearings From France, Germany, Italy, Japan, 
Singapore, the United Kingdom, and the People's Republic of China, 65 
FR 42665 (July 11, 2000). Pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act 
of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.218, the Department 
initiated and the International Trade Commission (ITC) instituted the 
second sunset review of the order on spherical plain bearings and parts 
thereof from France and the order on ball bearings and parts thereof 
from Singapore on June 1, 2005. See Initiation of Five-year 
(``Sunset'') Reviews, 70 FR 31423 (June 1, 2005); Certain Bearings From 
China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Singapore, and the United 
Kingdom, 70 FR 31531 (June 1, 2005). As a result of its review, the 
Department found that revocation of the orders would likely lead to 
continuation or recurrence of dumping and notified the ITC of the 
magnitude of the margin likely to prevail were the orders to be 
revoked. See Antifriction Bearings and Parts Thereof from France, 
Germany, Italy, and the United Kingdom; Five-year Sunset Reviews of 
Antidumping Duty Orders; Final Results, 70 FR 58183 (October 5, 2005); 
Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof from Japan and Singapore; Five-year 
Sunset Reviews of Antidumping Duty Orders; Final Results, 71 FR 26321 
(May 4, 2006). On August 3, 2006, the ITC determined pursuant to 
section 751(c) of the Act that revocation of the antidumping duty order 
on spherical plain bearings and parts thereof from France and the order 
on ball bearings and parts thereof from Singapore would not be likely 
to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry 
in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time. See Certain 
Bearings From China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Singapore, and the 
United Kingdom, 71 FR 51850 (August 31, 2006) and ITC Publication 3876 
(August 2006), entitled Certain Bearings from China, France, Germany, 
Italy, Japan, Singapore, and the United Kingdom: Investigation Nos. 
731-TA-344, 391-A, 392-A and C, 393-A, 394-A, 396, and 399-A (Second 
Review).

Determination to Revoke

    As a result of the determination by the ITC that revocation of 
these antidumping duty orders is not likely to lead to continuation or 
recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States, the 
Department is revoking the orders on spherical plain bearings and parts 
thereof from France and on ball bearings and parts thereof from 
Singapore, pursuant to section 751(d) of the Act. Pursuant to section 
751(d)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(i)(2)(i), the effective date of 
revocation is July 11, 2005 (i.e., the fifth anniversary of the date of 
publication in the Federal Register of the notice of continuation of 
the antidumping duty orders). The Department will notify U.S. Customs 
and Border Protection to discontinue suspension of liquidation and 
collection of cash deposits on entries of the subject merchandise 
entered or withdrawn from warehouse on or after July 11, 2005, the 
effective date of revocation of the antidumping duty orders. The 
Department will complete any pending administrative reviews of these 
orders and will conduct administrative reviews of subject merchandise 
entered prior to the effective date of revocation in response to 
appropriately filed requests for review.
    This five-year sunset review and notice are in accordance with 
section 751(d)(2) and published pursuant to section 777(I)(1) of the 
Act.
