In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.214(d) (2005), we are initiating an antidumping new shipper review of Hot Metal Forge (India) Pvt., Ltd. (Hot Metal). The period of review (POR) of this new shipper review is February 1, 2007 through July 31, 2007. EFFECTIVE DATE: October 4, 2007.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(c), the Department received a timely request from Hot Metal, a producer and exporter of flanges, for a new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on flanges from India. See August 31, 2007, letter from Hot Metal to the Secretary of Commerce requesting a new shipper review. PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 56723 Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b), Hot Metal certified that it is both an exporter and producer of the subject merchandise, that it did not export subject merchandise to the United States during the period of the investigation (POI) (July 1, 1992 through December 31, 1992), and that since the investigation was initiated, it has not been affiliated with any producer or exporter who exported the subject merchandise to the United States during the POI. It also submitted documentation establishing the date on which it first shipped the subject merchandise to the United States, the volume of that shipment, and the date of its first sale to an unaffiliated customer in the United States. It also certified it had no shipments to the United States during the period subsequent to its first shipment. The Department conducted a Customs database query in an attempt to confirm that Hot Metal’s shipments of subject merchandise entered the United States for consumption and that liquidation of such entries had been suspended for antidumping duties. See October 1, 2007 New Shipper Review Initiation Checklist, question 18. The Department also examined whether the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) confirmed that such entries were made during the new shipper review POR. Initiation of Review In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and section 351.214(d) of the Department’s regulations, we find that the request Hot Metal submitted meets the threshold requirement for initiation of a new shipper review. Accordingly, we are initiating a new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on flanges from India manufactured and exported by Hot Metal. This review covers the period February 1, 2007, through July 31, 2007. We intend to issue the preliminary results of this review no later than 180 days after the date on which this review is initiated, and the final results within 90 days after the date on which we issue the preliminary results. See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act. On August 17, 2006, the Pension Protection Act of 2006 (H.R. 4) was signed into law. Section 1632 of H.R. 4 temporarily suspends the authority of the Department to instruct U.S. CBP to collect a bond or other security in lieu of a cash deposit in new shipper reviews. Therefore, the posting of a bond under section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act in lieu of a cash deposit is not available in this case.

On March 30, 2007, the Timken Company (i.e., Petitioner) submitted a case brief. On April 25, 2007, Peer Bearing Company–Changshan (‘‘CPZ’’) submitted a case brief. On April 30, 2007, Petitioner and CPZ each submitted a rebuttal brief.1 Yantai Timken Company Limited (‘‘Yantai’’), Chin Jun Industrial Ltd. (‘‘Chin Jun’’), and Hebei Longsheng Metals & Minerals Trade Co., Ltd. (‘‘Hebei’’) did not submit case briefs or rebuttal briefs. In the Preliminary Results we preliminarily rescinded the review with respect to Chin Jun and Hebei. No interested party requested a hearing. We have conducted this administrative review in accordance with section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), and 19 CFR 351.213. Scope of Order Merchandise covered by the order is TRBs from the PRC; flange, take–up cartridge, and hanger units incorporating tapered roller bearings; and tapered roller housings (except pillow blocks) incorporating tapered rollers, with or without spindles, whether or not for automotive use. This merchandise is currently classifiable under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) item numbers 8482.20.00, 8482.91.00.50, 8482.99.15, 8482.99.45 2, 8483.20.40, 1 Yantai withdrew its request for review within the applicable deadline on September 6, 2006, stating that it did not intend to participate further in the review. However, Koyo Corporation of U.S.A., a U.S. producer of TRBs, also requested a review of Yantai. Therefore, the Department did not rescind the review of Yantai. 2 In the preceding POR, Petitioner argued that in 1995 HTSUS subheading 8482.99.30, included in the scope description, was split and replaced by HTSUS 8482.99.15 for cups and other rings (cones), and HTSUS 8482.99.45 for other TRBs parts. The Department agreed and stated that ‘‘ . . . for the final results, the Department will use HTSUS 8482.99.15 for cups and other rings (cones) and HTSUS 8482.99.45 for other parts of TRBs. See Tapered Roller Bearings and Parts Thereof, Finished and Unfinished, from the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of 2004-2005 Administrative Review and Partial Rescission of Review, 71 FR 75936 (December 19, 2006), and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 1. The Department inadvertently failed to reflect this PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 8483.20.80, 8483.30.80, 8483.90.20, 8483.90.30, 8483.90.80, 8708.99.80.15, and 8708.99.80.80. Although the HTSUS item numbers are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. Rescission of Review In our Preliminary Results, we stated we preliminarily rescinded the review with respect to Chin Jun in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3) and with respect to Heibei in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). Chin Jun reported that it had no sales or exports of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. Hebei withdrew its request for review within the applicable deadline. No other party requested a review of Hebei. See Preliminary Results, 72 FR at 14078. We reviewed customs import data and found no evidence that Chin Jun had any shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. In addition, on February 28, 2007, we made a ‘‘No Shipments Inquiry’’ to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) stating that records at the Department did not evidence exports of subject merchandise by Chin Jun during the POR. We asked CBP to notify us within ten days if CBP ‘‘has contrary information and is suspending liquidation’’ of subject merchandise exported by Chin Jun. CBP did not reply with contrary information. Therefore, we are rescinding the administrative review with respect to Chin Jun and Hebei. Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the post– preliminary comments by parties in this review are addressed in the memorandum from Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, to David M. Spooner, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, ‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Results of the 19th Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Tapered Roller Bearings and Parts Thereof, Finished and Unfinished, from the People’s Republic of China,’’ dated September 24, 2007 (‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum’’), which is hereby adopted by this notice. A list of the issues which parties raised and to which we responded in the Issues and Decision Memorandum is attached to this notice as an appendix. The Issues and Decision Memorandum is a public change in the Preliminary Results and in these final results is replacing HTSUS 8482.99.30 with HTSUS 8482.99.15 and HTSUS 8482.99.45 in the scope description. See the concurrent Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 1 for further discussion. E:\FR\FM\04OCN1.SGM 04OCN1

Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.214(d) (2005), 
we are initiating an antidumping new shipper review of Hot Metal Forge 
(India) Pvt., Ltd. (Hot Metal). The period of review (POR) of this new 
shipper review is February 1, 2007 through July 31, 2007.

EFFECTIVE DATE: October 4, 2007.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Fred Baker, Michael Heaney, or Robert 
James, AD/CVD Operations, Office 7, Import Administration,

Street and Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20230, telephone: 
(202) 482-2924, (202) 482-4475, or (202) 482-0649, respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.214(c), the Department received a timely request from Hot Metal, a 
producer and exporter of flanges, for a new shipper review of the 
antidumping duty order on flanges from India. See August 31, 2007, 
letter from Hot Metal to the Secretary of Commerce requesting a new 
shipper review.
    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.214(b), Hot Metal certified that it is both an exporter and 
producer of the subject merchandise, that it did not export subject 
merchandise to the United States during the period of the investigation 
(POI) (July 1, 1992 through December 31, 1992), and that since the 
investigation was initiated, it has not been affiliated with any 
producer or exporter who exported the subject merchandise to the United 
States during the POI. It also submitted documentation establishing the 
date on which it first shipped the subject merchandise to the United 
States, the volume of that shipment, and the date of its first sale to 
an unaffiliated customer in the United States. It also certified it had 
no shipments to the United States during the period subsequent to its 
first shipment.
    The Department conducted a Customs database query in an attempt to 
confirm that Hot Metal's shipments of subject merchandise entered the 
United States for consumption and that liquidation of such entries had 
been suspended for antidumping duties. See October 1, 2007 New Shipper 
Review Initiation Checklist, question 18. The Department also examined 
whether the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) confirmed that 
such entries were made during the new shipper review POR.

Initiation of Review

    In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and section 
351.214(d) of the Department's regulations, we find that the request 
Hot Metal submitted meets the threshold requirement for initiation of a 
new shipper review. Accordingly, we are initiating a new shipper review 
of the antidumping duty order on flanges from India manufactured and 
exported by Hot Metal. This review covers the period February 1, 2007, 
through July 31, 2007. We intend to issue the preliminary results of 
this review no later than 180 days after the date on which this review 
is initiated, and the final results within 90 days after the date on 
which we issue the preliminary results. See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of 
the Act.
    On August 17, 2006, the Pension Protection Act of 2006 (H.R. 4) was 
signed into law. Section 1632 of H.R. 4 temporarily suspends the 
authority of the Department to instruct U.S. CBP to collect a bond or 
other security in lieu of a cash deposit in new shipper reviews. 
Therefore, the posting of a bond under section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the 
Act in lieu of a cash deposit is not available in this case. Importers 
of

forged stainless steel flanges manufactured and exported by Hot Metal 
must continue to post cash deposits of estimated antidumping duties on 
each entry of subject merchandise (i.e., forged stainless steel 
flanges) at the current all-others rate of 162.14 percent.
    Interested parties may submit applications for disclosure under 
administrative protective order in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305 and 
351.306.
    This initiation and this notice are issued and published in 
accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and sections 351.214 
and 351.221(c)(1)(i) of the Department's regulations.
