The Department received no substantive responses from any respondent interested parties. As a result, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), the Department is conducting expedited (120–day) sunset reviews of the antidumping duty finding/orders on PC strand from Brazil, India, Japan, Korea, Mexico, and Thailand. Scope of the Finding/Orders The product covered in the sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on PC strand from Brazil, India, Korea, Mexico, and Thailand is steel strand produced from wire of non–stainless, non–galvanized steel, which is suitable for use in prestressed concrete (both pre–tensioned and post–tensioned) applications. The product definition encompasses covered and uncovered strand and all types, grades, and diameters of PC strand. The product covered in the sunset review of the antidumping duty finding on PC strand from Japan is steel wire strand, other than alloy steel, not galvanized, which is stress–relieved and suitable for use in prestressed concrete. The merchandise subject to the finding/orders is currently classifiable under subheadings 7312.10.3010 and 7312.10.3012 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise under the finding/orders is dispositive. Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in these reviews are addressed in the ‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Expedited Sunset Reviews of the Antidumping Duty Finding/Orders on Prestressed Concrete Steel Wire Strand from Brazil, India, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Mexico, and Thailand’’ from Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary John M. Andersen to Acting Assistant Secretary Ronald K. Lorentzen dated March 19, 2009 (Decision Memo), which is hereby adopted by this notice. The issues discussed in the Decision Memo include Country Notification Regarding APO This notice serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written notification of the return or 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 sanctionable violation. We are issuing and publishing the final results and notice in accordance with sections 751(c), 752(c), and 777(i)(1) of the Act. 20:28 Mar 25, 2009 Jkt 217001 Final Results of Reviews We determine that revocation of the antidumping duty finding/orders on PC strand from Brazil, India, Japan, Mexico, Korea, and Thailand would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at the following weighted– average percentage margins: Weighted–Average Margin (Percent) Company Brazil ............................................................................................ ......................................................................................................

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On July 1, 2008, in response to requests from interested parties, 
the Department of Commerce (the Department) published a notice of 
initiation of the administrative reviews of the antidumping duty orders 
on ball bearings and parts thereof from France, Germany, Italy, Japan, 
and the United Kingdom. See Initiation of Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation 
in Part, 73 FR 37409 (July 1, 2008).
    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d), the Department will rescind 
an administrative review in part ``if a party that requested a review 
withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of the publication of 
notice of initiation of the requested review.'' In accordance with 19 
CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department may extend the 90-day time limit if 
the Department ``decides that it is reasonable to do so.'' On October 
3, 2008, for all interested parties which requested the administrative 
reviews of the antidumping duty orders on ball bearings and parts 
thereof from Japan and the United Kingdom, we extended the due date for 
withdrawing the requests for reviews to October 10, 2008, because all 
respondents that we selected for individual examination in these two 
reviews had withdrawn their requests for reviews in a timely manner and 
because we had to identify additional respondents for individual 
examination. On October 14, 2008, for Canon, Inc., we extended the due 
date for withdrawing the request for review to October 15, 2008, based 
on the circumstances stated in Canon, Inc.'s October 14, 2008, letter 
requesting an extension of the due date.
    Subsequent to the initiation of these reviews, we received timely 
withdrawals of the requests we had received for the reviews as follows:

\3\ We received timely withdrawals of the requests for reviews of these companies between October 8, 2008, and

of the request we received for Sapporo Precision, Inc. (Sapporo), with 
respect to the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on 
ball bearings and parts thereof from Japan. A review of Sapporo was 
also requested by another interested party which has not withdrawn its 
request. Consequently, we continue to conduct the administrative review 
of Sapporo.

Rescission of Reviews

    The Department received the timely submitted letters withdrawing 
the requests for the reviews of the companies listed above within the 
90-day period or within the specific extended due dates. The Department 
received no other requests for the reviews of these companies. Pursuant 
to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department is rescinding the reviews in 
part with respect to ball bearings and parts thereof produced and/or 
exported by the companies as stated above. The Department intends to 
issue appropriate assessment instructions to U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection 15 days after publication of this notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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 Department's assumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and subsequent assessment 
of double antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding APO

    This notice serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written 
notification of the return or 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 sanctionable 
violation.
    We are issuing and publishing these rescissions in part in 
accordance with section 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
