In the Final Results, the Department inadvertently omitted the words ‘‘and parts thereof, finished and unfinished’’ from the first line of the scope description stated in the ‘‘Scope of Order’’ section therein. After analyzing Petitioner’s comment, we have determined, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(e), that a ministerial error existed with respect to the description of merchandise covered by the antidumping duty order as stated in the ‘‘Scope of Order’’ section of the Final Results. The Department inadvertently omitted the words ‘‘and parts thereof, finished and unfinished’’ from the first line of the scope description stated in the ‘‘Scope of Order’’ section therein.

Correction of this error does not result in a change to final antidumping duty margins, deposit rates, or assessment rates. In addition, the rate for the PRC–wide entity remains unchanged.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On October 1, 2007, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224(c)(2), Petitioner\1\ 
filed a timely ministerial error allegation with respect to the ``Scope 
of Order'' section in the Final Results. No interested party filed

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of Order

    Imports covered by this order are shipments of tapered roller 
bearings and parts thereof, finished and unfinished, 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. These products are currently classifiable under 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS'') item 
numbers 8482.20.00, 8482.91.00.50, HTSUS 8482.99.15, HTSUS 8482.99.45, 
8483.20.40, 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.

Ministerial Errors

    A ministerial error is defined in section 751(h) of the Act and 
further clarified in 19 CFR 351.224(f) as ``an error in addition, 
subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical error resulting 
from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any other 
similar type of unintentional error which the Secretary considers 
ministerial.''
    On October 1, 2007, Petitioner filed a ministerial error allegation 
with the Department requesting that we correct the narrative 
description in the ``Scope of Order'' section of our Final Results. In 
the Final Results, the Department inadvertently omitted the words ``and 
parts thereof, finished and unfinished'' from the first line of the 
scope description stated in the ``Scope of Order'' section therein.
    After analyzing Petitioner's comment, we have determined, in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(e), that a ministerial error existed 
with respect to the description of merchandise covered by the 
antidumping duty order as stated in the ``Scope of Order'' section of 
the Final Results. The Department inadvertently omitted the words ``and 
parts thereof, finished and unfinished'' from the first line of the 
scope description stated in the ``Scope of Order'' section therein. The 
correct scope description is stated in the ``Scope of Order'' section 
of this notice, above. Correction of this error does not result in a 
change to final antidumping duty margins, deposit rates, or assessment 
rates. In addition, the rate for the PRC-wide entity remains unchanged.

Amended Final Results of Review

    We determine that the following dumping margin exists for the 
period June 1, 2005, through May 31, 2006:

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    The Department will determine and the U.S. Bureau of Customs and 
Border Protection (``CBP'') shall assess antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries. We intend to issue appropriate assessment 
instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of these amended 
final results of review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit rates will be effective upon publication 
of the amended final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) the cash deposit 
rate for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters 
who received a separate rate in a prior segment of the proceeding 
(which were not reviewed in this segment of the proceeding) will 
continue to be the rate assigned in that segment of the proceeding; (2) 
the cash deposit rate for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise that 
have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit 
rate will be the PRC-wide rate of 60.95 percent; and (3) the cash 
deposit rate for all non-PRC exporters of subject merchandise which 
have not received their own rate, will be the rate applicable to the 
PRC exporters that supplied that non-PRC exporter. These requirements 
shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notification of Interested Parties

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (``APOs'') of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance

[[Page 70303]]

with 19 CFR 351.305, which continues to govern business proprietary 
information in this segment of the proceeding. Timely written 
notification of the return/destruction of APO materials or conversion 
to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply 
with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation which is 
subject to sanction.

sections 751(h) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
