SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background At the request of interested parties, on August 25, 2009, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of this antidumping PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 duty administrative review. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 74 FR 42873, August 25, 2009. The review covers the period July 1, 2008, through June 30, 2009. The preliminary results for these administrative reviews are currently due no later than April 2, 2010. Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department to complete the preliminary results of an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the 245 day time period for the preliminary results up to 365 days. The Department has determined it is not practicable to complete this review within the statutory time limit because we require additional time to conduct a sales below-cost investigation in this administrative review and to collect and analyze other information needed for our preliminary results. Accordingly, the Department is extending the time limits for completion of the preliminary results of this administrative review until no later than June 30, 2010, which is 334 days from the last day of the anniversary month of these orders. We intend to issue the final results in this review no later than 120 days after publication of the preliminary results. This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act. January 14, 2010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The Department of Commerce (the Department) published antidumping duty orders on ball bearings, cylindrical roller bearings, and spherical plain bearings and parts thereof from Germany on May 15, 1989. See Antidumping Duty Orders: Ball Bearings, Cylindrical Roller Bearings, and Spherical Plain Bearings and Parts Thereof From the Federal Republic of Germany, 54 FR 20900 (May 15, 1989). The orders on cylindrical roller bearings and spherical plain bearings and parts thereof from Germany have been revoked. See Revocation of Antidumping Duty Orders on Certain Bearings From Hungary, Japan, Romania, Sweden, France, Germany, Italy, and the United Kingdom, 65 FR 42667 (July 11, 2000). Miniaturkugellager GmbH (MKL) was a respondent in a new-shipper administrative review of the antidumping duty order on ball bearings and parts thereof from Germany covering the period December 1, 1994, through May 31, 1995. See Ball Bearings (Other Than Tapered Roller Bearings) and Parts Thereof, From Germany; Final Results of New Shipper Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 61 FR 15769 (April 9, 1996). As a result of a changed-circumstances review, we determined that myonic GmbH (myonic), a foreign producer of subject merchandise, is a successor-in-interest to MKL. See Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof from Germany: Final Results of Antidumping Duty ChangedCircumstances Review, 73 FR 75078 (December 10, 2008). On June 24, 2009, we initiated the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on ball bearings and parts thereof from Germany covering the period May 1, 2008, through April 30, 2009. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:17 Jan 20, 2010 Jkt 220001 for Revocation in Part, 74 FR 30052 (June 24, 2009). After analysis of the quantity and value of the sales of ball bearings and parts thereof from Germany during the 2008–09 period of review, we selected myonic as a respondent for individual examination. See the memorandum to the File entitled ‘‘Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof from Germany—Respondent Selection’’ dated August 3, 2009. In its October 1, 2009, response to the Department’s antidumping questionnaire, myonic informed the Department that, on March 5, 2009, Minebea Co., Ltd., purchased 100 percent of the shares of myonic GmbH Holding, which is myonic’s parent company. In addition, myonic reported that an unaffiliated investor purchased myonic Inc., which was myonic’s U.S. subsidiary. The Department did not receive a request from myonic or any other interested parties for a changed-circumstances review with respect to myonic. Scope of the Order The products covered by the order are ball bearings and parts thereof. These products include all antifriction 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.

Initiation of Changed-Circumstances Review Pursuant to section 751(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.216(d), the Department will conduct a changed-circumstances review upon receipt of information concerning, or a request from an interested party for a review of, an antidumping duty order which shows changed circumstances sufficient to warrant a review of the order. Based on the information myonic has submitted in the 2008–09 administrative review, we find that we have received information which shows changed circumstances sufficient to warrant initiation of such a review in order to determine whether the post-acquisition myonic is the successor-in-interest to the pre-acquisition myonic. See 19 CFR 351.216(d). Therefore, in accordance with the above-referenced statute and regulation, the Department is initiating a changed-circumstances review. Because we are currently conducting the 2008–09 administrative review, we will conduct the changed-circumstances review in the context of the 2008–09 administrative review. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(2), we will issue a questionnaire requesting factual information pertinent to the changedcircumstances review. We intend to issue the preliminary results of the changed-circumstances review when we issue the preliminary results of the 2008–09 administrative review; we intend to issue the final results of the changed-circumstances review when we issue the final results of the 2008–09 administrative review. During the course of this review, we will not change the cash-deposit requirements for the subject merchandise. The cashdeposit rate will be altered, if warranted, pursuant only to the final results of the changed-circumstances and/or administrative review. This notice of initiation is in accordance with section 751(b)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(1). Dated: January 14, 2010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The Department of Commerce (the Department) published antidumping 
duty orders on ball bearings, cylindrical roller bearings, and 
spherical plain bearings and parts thereof from Germany on May 15, 
1989. See Antidumping Duty Orders: Ball Bearings, Cylindrical Roller 
Bearings, and Spherical Plain Bearings and Parts Thereof From the 
Federal Republic of Germany, 54 FR 20900 (May 15, 1989). The orders on 
cylindrical roller bearings and spherical plain bearings and parts 
thereof from Germany have been revoked. See Revocation of Antidumping 
Duty Orders on Certain Bearings From Hungary, Japan, Romania, Sweden, 
France, Germany, Italy, and the United Kingdom, 65 FR 42667 (July 11,

    Miniaturkugellager GmbH (MKL) was a respondent in a new-shipper 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on ball bearings 
and parts thereof from Germany covering the period December 1, 1994,

Bearings) and Parts Thereof, From Germany; Final Results of New Shipper 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 61 FR 15769 (April 9, 1996). As 
a result of a changed-circumstances review, we determined that myonic 
GmbH (myonic), a foreign producer of subject merchandise, is a 
successor-in-interest to MKL. See Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof from 
Germany: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Changed-Circumstances 
Review, 73 FR 75078 (December 10, 2008).
    On June 24, 2009, we initiated the administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on ball bearings and parts thereof from Germany

of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and

analysis of the quantity and value of the sales of ball bearings and 
parts thereof from Germany during the 2008-09 period of review, we 
selected myonic as a respondent for individual examination. See the 
memorandum to the File entitled ``Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof from 
Germany--Respondent Selection'' dated August 3, 2009. In its October 1, 
2009, response to the Department's antidumping questionnaire, myonic

other interested parties for a changed-circumstances review with 
respect to myonic.

Initiation of Changed-Circumstances Review

    Pursuant to section 751(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the Act), and 19 CFR 351.216(d), the Department will conduct a 
changed-circumstances review upon receipt of information concerning, or 
a request from an interested party for a review of, an antidumping duty 
order which shows changed circumstances sufficient to warrant a review 
of the order. Based on the information myonic has submitted in the 
2008-09 administrative review, we find that we have received 
information which shows changed circumstances sufficient to warrant 
initiation of such a review in order to determine whether the post-
acquisition myonic is the successor-in-interest to the pre-acquisition 
myonic. See 19 CFR 351.216(d). Therefore, in accordance with the above-
referenced statute and regulation, the Department is initiating a 
changed-circumstances review.
    Because we are currently conducting the 2008-09 administrative 
review, we will conduct the changed-circumstances review in the context 
of the 2008-09 administrative review. In accordance with 19 CFR 
351.221(b)(2), we will issue a questionnaire requesting factual 
information pertinent to the changed-circumstances review. We intend to 
issue the preliminary results of the changed-circumstances review when 
we issue the preliminary results of the 2008-09 administrative review; 
we intend to issue the final results of the changed-circumstances 
review when we issue the final results of the 2008-09 administrative 
review. During the course of this review, we will not change the cash-
deposit requirements for the subject merchandise. The cash-deposit rate 
will be altered, if warranted, pursuant only to the final results of 
the changed-circumstances and/or administrative review.
    This notice of initiation is in accordance with section 751(b)(1) 
of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(1).
