SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On September 15, 2004, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the final results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on ball bearings and parts thereof from Germany for the period May 1, 2002, through April 30, 2003. See Antifriction Bearings and Parts Thereof From France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Singapore, and the United Kingdom: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews, Rescission of Administrative Reviews in Part, and Determination To Revoke Order in Part, 69 FR 55574 (September 15, 2004) (Final Results). The Final Results were amended in Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof from Germany; Amended Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 69 FR 63507 (November 2, 2004) (Amended Final Results). Paul Mueller Industrie PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 42385 GmbH (Paul Mueller) and Timken US Corporation (Timken) filed lawsuits challenging the Final Results as amended by the Amended Final Results. The Department requested a voluntary remand on two issues. On May 26, 2006, the United States Court of International Trade (CIT) granted the Department’s request and ordered the Department to address two items: (1) correct a ministerial error involving a billing adjustment reported by Paul Mueller for one home–market transaction and to recalculate its antidumping margin accordingly; (2) explain its treatment of Paul Mueller’s inventory carrying costs. In accordance with the CIT’s remand order in Paul Mueller v. United States, 435 F. Supp. 2d at 1241, 1246–1247 (CIT 2006), the Department filed its redetermination on remand of the final results (remand results) on September 13, 2006. In its redetermination, the Department corrected the ministerial error and made a change to its treatment of the inventory carrying costs to ensure that home–market and U.S. inventory carrying costs were calculated on a consistent basis. On June 29, 2007, the CIT affirmed the Department’s remand results. The CIT’s decision was not made publicly available until July 17, 2007, when the Court entered its judgment. See Paul Mueller, slip op. 07– 100. Decision Not in Harmony By affirming the remand results, the CIT recognized that the Department had made a ministerial error in its calculation of a billing adjustment for Paul Mueller and that its initial calculations of inventory carrying costs for Paul Mueller’s home–market and U.S. inventory carrying costs were not made on a consistent basis. The changes to our calculations with respect to Paul Mueller resulted in a change in the weighted–average margin for ball bearings and parts thereof from 0.44 percent to 0.46 percent for the period of review. Accordingly, absent an appeal or, if appealed, upon a final and conclusive court decision in this action, we will amend our final results of this review to reflect the recalculation of the margin for Paul Mueller. Suspension of Liquidation The United States Court of Appeals for Federal Circuit (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 E:\FR\FM\02AUN1.SGM 02AUN1
