On January 9, 2007, SKF France S.A. and SKF Aerospace France S.A.S. (collectively SKF France) and SNFA France notified the Department of a change of ownership in SNFA France and requested the initiation of a changed–circumstances review of the order on ball bearings from France. In a separate filing on the same date, SKF Industries S.p.A. (SKF Italy) and SNFA Italy notified the Department of a change in ownership of SNFA Italy. On January 26, 2007, SKF UK Ltd. (SKF UK) and SNFA UK filed such a notification with respect to SNFA UK. Each notification stated that AB SKF, the parent SKF company, had purchased all outstanding shares of the SNFA companies through its subsidiary, SKF Holding France S.A., on July 4, 2006. We initiated a changed–circumstances review pursuant to the request by SKF France and SNFA France on March 2, 2007. See Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof from France: Initiation of an Antidumping Duty Changed– Circumstances Review, 72 FR 9513 (March 2, 2007). On March 9, 2007, the Department self–initiated changed– circumstances reviews of the orders on ball bearings from Italy and the United Kingdom. See Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof from Italy and the United Kingdom: Initiation of Antidumping Duty Changed–Circumstances Reviews, 72 FR 10643 (March 9, 2007). For each review, we have requested more detailed information from the merged SKF/SNFA entities. The entities have complied with our requests and Timken US Corporation, the petitioner in the investigations, has submitted comments on the information. On June 29, 2007, we initiated administrative reviews of the orders on ball bearings from France, Italy, and the United Kingdom for the period from May 1, 2006, through April 30, 2007. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, Request for Revocation in Part and Deferral of Administrative Review, 72 FR 35690 (June 29, 2007). After analysis of the quantity and value of the sales of ball bearings from France during the period of review, we selected SKF France as a respondent for individual examination in the administrative review of the order covering that merchandise. See ‘‘Memorandum to Laurie Parkhill from Thomas Schauer regarding Ball Bearings and Parts VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:23 Oct 25, 2007 Jkt 214001 Thereof from France Respondent Selection’’ dated August 14, 2007. After a similar analysis of sales of ball bearings from Italy, we selected SKF Italy as a respondent for individual examination in the review of the order covering ball bearings from Italy. See ‘‘Memorandum to Laurie Parkhill from Thomas Schauer regarding Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof from Italy Respondent Selection’’ dated August 14, 2007. We received no request to review the sales of SKF UK in the administrative review of the order on ball bearings from the United Kingdom. Scope of the Order The products covered by these orders are ball bearings and parts thereof. These products include all bearings that employ balls as the rolling element. Imports of these products are classified under the following categories: antifriction balls, ball bearings with integral shafts, ball bearings (including radial ball bearings) and parts thereof, and housed or mounted ball bearing units and parts thereof. Imports of these products are classified under the following Harmonized Tariff Schedules of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings: 3926.90.45, 4016.93.00, 4016.93.10, 4016.93.50, 6909.19.5010, 8431.20.00, 8431.39.0010, 8482.10.10, 8482.10.50, 8482.80.00, 8482.91.00, 8482.99.05, 8482.99.2580, 8482.99.35, 8482.99.6595, 8483.20.40, 8483.20.80, 8483.50.8040, 8483.50.90, 8483.90.20, 8483.90.30, 8483.90.70, 8708.50.50, 8708.60.50, 8708.60.80, 8708.70.6060, 8708.70.8050, 8708.93.30, 8708.93.5000, 8708.93.6000, 8708.93.75, 8708.99.06, 8708.99.31, 8708.99.4960, 8708.99.50, 8708.99.5800, 8708.99.8080, 8803.10.00, 8803.20.00, 8803.30.00, 8803.90.30, and 8803.90.90. As a result of recent changes to the Harmonized Tariff Schedule, effective February 2, 2007, the subject merchandise is also classifiable under the following additional HTS item numbers: 8708.30.5090, 8708.40.7500, 8708.50.7900, 8708.50.8900, 8708.50.9150, 8708.50.9900, 8708.80.6590, 8708.94.75, 8708.95.2000, 8708.99.5500, 8708.99.68, and 8708.99.8180. Although the HTSUS item numbers above are provided for convenience and customs purposes, written descriptions of the scope of these orders remain dispositive. For a listing of scope determinations which pertain to the orders, see the Scope Determination Memorandum from the Antifriction Bearings Team to Laurie Parkhill, dated May 29, 2007, which is on file in the Central Records Unit (CRU) of the main Commerce PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 60799 building, room B–099, in the General Issues record (A–100–001) for the 2005– 2006 reviews. Rescission of Reviews The mergers of the SKF/SNFA entities in France, Italy, and the United Kingdom occurred in July 2006, during the period under review in the 2006/ 2007 administrative reviews of the orders on ball bearings from those countries. Because SKF France and SKF Italy have been selected as respondents for individual examination in those reviews, we will be examining the impact of the mergers with respect to the sales that they, or their subsidiaries, made to the United States during the period of review and the effect that these mergers have had on the operations and management of the relevant firms for the purposes of determining, among other things, whether the SKF companies should be collapsed with their SNFA counterparts. Thus, we intend to address any considerations arising from the changed–circumstances reviews on ball bearings from France and Italy in the context of the administrative reviews for SKF France and SKF Italy. Accordingly, we are rescinding the changed– circumstances reviews with respect to the antidumping duty orders on ball bearings and parts thereof from France and Italy. We will incorporate the records of the rescinded reviews into the records of the appropriate administrative reviews. Dated: October 19, 2007. David M. Spooner, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. [FR Doc.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On September 29, 2006, the U.S. Department of Commerce 
(``Department'') published a notice of initiation of the administrative 
review of the antidumping duty order on corrosion-resistant carbon 
steel flat products from Korea, covering the period August 1, 2005 to 
July 31, 2006. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews, 71 FR 57465 (September 29, 2006). On September 
10, 2007, the Department published the preliminary results of this 
review. See Certain Corrosion Resistant Carbon Steel Flat Products from 
the Republic of Korea: Notice of Preliminary Results and Partial 
Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 72 FR 51584 
(September 10, 2007). The final results of this review are currently 
due no later than January 8, 2008.

Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department to issue final results within 120 days 
after the date on which the preliminary results are published. However, 
if it is not practicable to complete the review within that time 
period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend 
the time limit for the final results to a maximum of 180 days. See also 
19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).
    We determine that it is not practicable to complete the final 
results of this review within the original time limit. Several 
technical issues arose which require the collection and analyses of 
certain additional information after the preliminary results. 
Therefore, to allow sufficient time to collect and analyze the 
additional information, and to conduct the briefing process, the 
Department is fully extending the final results. The final results are 
now due not later than March 10, 2008, the next business day after 180 
days from publication of the preliminary results. The amended schedule 
for interested parties to submit case briefs, written comments, and/or 
hearing is not later than Monday, January 14, 2008. Rebuttal briefs are 
limited to issues raised in such briefs or comments and may be filed no 
later than five days after the time limit for filing the case briefs or 
comments. See 19 CFR 351.309(d). Any hearing, if requested, ordinarily 
will be held two days after the due date of the rebuttal briefs.
    This extension is in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the 
Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).
