Pursuant to section 706(a) of the Act, the Department is publishing a countervailing duty order on the subject merchandise. Scope of the Order The scope of this order includes certain chemically–bonded (resin or pitch), magnesia carbon bricks with a magnesia component of at least 70 percent magnesia (‘‘MgO’’) by weight, regardless of the source of raw materials for the MgO, with carbon levels ranging from trace amounts to 30 percent by weight, regardless of enhancements (for example, magnesia carbon bricks can be enhanced with coating, grinding, tar impregnation or coking, high temperature heat treatments, anti–slip treatments or metal casing) and regardless of whether or not antioxidants are present (for example, antioxidants can be added to the mix from trace amounts to 15 percent by weight as various metals, metal alloys, and metal carbides). Certain magnesia carbon bricks that are the subject of this order are currently classifiable under subheadings 6902.10.1000, 6902.10.5000, 6815.91.0000, 6815.99.2000 and 6815.99.4000 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’). While HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description is dispositive. Countervailing Duty Order On September 8, 2010, the ITC notified the Department of its final determination, pursuant to section 705(b)(1)(A)(i) of the Act, that an industry in the United States is materially injured as a result of subsidized imports of MCBs from the PRC.1 As a result of the Department’s negative preliminary determination and subsequent affirmative final determination, liquidation was suspended effective the publication date of the Final Determination. See Final Determination, 75 FR at 45474. In accordance with section 706 of the Act, CBP will continue suspension of liquidation for MCBs from the PRC, and will assess, upon further advice by the Department pursuant to section 706(a)(1) of the Act, countervailing duties for each entry of subject merchandise in an amount based on the net countervailable subsidy rates for the subject merchandise. On or after the date of publication of the ITC’s final injury determination in the Federal Register, CBP must require, at the same time as importers would normally deposit estimated duties on this merchandise, a cash deposit equal to the rates noted below: Net Countervailable Subsidy Rate Exporter/Manufacturer srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES RHI (RHI Refractories Liaoning Co., Ltd. and RHI Refractories (Dalian) Co., Ltd.) .................................................

Accordingly, with respect to countervailing duties, there are no entries prior to March 12, 2010, for which CBP should lift suspension and release any bond or other security pursuant to the ITC’s negative critical circumstances determination. This notice constitutes the countervailing duty order with respect to MCBs from the PRC pursuant to section 706(a) of the Act. Interested parties may contact the Department’s Central Records Unit, Room 1117 of the main Commerce building, for copies of an updated list of countervailing duty orders currently in effect.

Therefore, given the complexity of issues in this case, we are extending the time limit for completion of the final results by 30 days. An extension of 30 days from the current deadline of November 12, 2010, would result in a new deadline of December 12, 2010.

Limit for the Final Results of the 2008-2009 Administrative Review of 
the Antidumping Duty Order

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On July 29, 2009, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
initiated the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on 
tapered roller bearings and parts thereof, finished or unfinished 
(``TRBs''), from the People's Republic of China (``PRC'') for the 
period June 1, 2008, through May 31, 2009. See Initiation of 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Deferral 
of Administrative Review, 74 FR 37690 (July 29, 2009). On July 15, 
2010, the Department published its preliminary results of the 
administrative review of the antidumping order on TRBs from the PRC. 
See Tapered Roller Bearings and Parts Thereof, Finished or Unfinished, 
from the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results of the 2008-
2009 Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order, 75 FR 41148 
(July 15, 2010). The final results of this administrative review are 
currently due no later than November 12, 2010.

[[Page 57444]]

Extension of Time Limit for Final Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department to issue the final results in an 
administrative review within 120 days after the date on which the 
preliminary results are published. 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 time period to a maximum of 
180 days.
    We determine that it is not practicable to complete the final 
results of this review within the original time limit because the 
Department requires additional time to analyze: (a) Issues raised in 
post-preliminary results supplemental questionnaire responses; (b) 
issues raised in recent surrogate value submissions; and (c) the 
anticipated complexity of arguments in the upcoming case and rebuttal 
briefs due to surrogate valuation, successor-in-interest, and scope 
issues with regard to the respondents. Therefore, given the complexity 
of issues in this case, we are extending the time limit for completion 
of the final results by 30 days.
    An extension of 30 days from the current deadline of November 12, 
2010, would result in a new deadline of December 12, 2010. However, 
since December 12, 2010, falls on a Sunday, a non-business day, the 
final results will now be due no later than December 13, 2010, the next 
business day.
    This notice is published pursuant to sections 751(a) and 777(i) of 
the Act.

     Dated: September 15, 2010.

Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Operations.
