Although the HTSUS item numbers above are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the order remains dispositive. The size or precision grade of a bearing does not influence whether the bearing is covered by the order. The order covers all the subject bearings and parts thereof (inner race, outer race, cage, rollers, balls, seals, shields, etc.) outlined above with certain limitations. With regard to finished parts, all such parts are included in the scope of the order. For unfinished parts, such parts are included if they have been heattreated or if heat treatment is not required to be performed on the part. Thus, the only unfinished parts that are not covered by the order are those that will be subject to heat treatment after importation. The ultimate application of a bearing also does not influence whether the bearing is covered by the order. Bearings designed for highly specialized applications are not excluded. Any of the subject bearings, regardless of whether they may ultimately be utilized in aircraft, automobiles, or other equipment, are within the scope of the order. For a list of scope determinations which pertain to the order, see the ‘‘Memorandum to Laurie Parkhill’’ regarding scope determinations for the 2008–09 reviews, dated April 21, 2010, which is on file in the Central Records Unit of the main Department of Commerce building, room 7046, in the General Issues record (A–100–001). Initiation of Changed-Circumstances Review Pursuant to section 751(b)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.216(d), the Department will conduct a changedcircumstances 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 Schaeffler Technologies submitted in its January 14, 2011, letter, we find that we have VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:21 Feb 23, 2011 Jkt 223001 received information which shows changed circumstances sufficient to warrant initiation of such a review in order to determine whether Schaeffler Technologies is the successor-in-interest to Schaeffler KG. 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 2009–10 administrative review of this order and Schaeffler KG is subject to the review, we will conduct the changed-circumstances review in the context of the 2009–10 administrative review. We intend to issue the preliminary results of the changedcircumstances review when we issue the preliminary results of the 2009–10 administrative review; we intend to issue the final results of the changedcircumstances review when we issue the final results of the 2009–10 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: February 16, 2011.

Tapered Roller Bearings and Parts Thereof, Finished and 
Unfinished, From the People's Republic of China: Extension of Time 
Limit for the Preliminary Results of the 2009-2010 Administrative 
Review of the Antidumping Duty Order

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Frances Veith or Demitrios 
Kalogeropoulos, AD/CVD Operations, Import Administration, International 
Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and

4295 or (202) 482-2623, respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On July 28, 2010, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') 
initiated the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on 
tapered roller bearings and parts thereof, finished and unfinished, 
from the People's Republic of China (``PRC'') for the period June 1, 
2009, through May 31, 2010. See Initiation of Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocations 
in Part, 75 FR 44224 (July 28, 2010). The preliminary results are 
currently due no later than March 2, 2011.

Statutory Time Limits

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department to make a preliminary determination in 
an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the 
anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested and a 
final determination within 120 days after the date on which the 
preliminary results are published. However, if it is not practicable to 
complete the review within these time periods, section 751(a)(3)(A) of 
the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the 
preliminary determination to a maximum of 365 days after the last day 
of the anniversary month.

Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results

    The Department finds it is not practicable to complete the 
preliminary results of this review within the original time limit 
because we require additional time to analyze questionnaire and 
supplemental questionnaire responses, to issue additional supplemental 
questionnaires if necessary, and to evaluate the most appropriate 
surrogate values on the administrative record to use in this segment of 
the proceeding. Accordingly, the Department is extending the time limit 
for completion of the preliminary results of this administrative review 
by the full 120 days allowed under section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. An 
extension of 120 days from this revised deadline would result in a new 
deadline of June 30, 2011, for the publication of the preliminary 
results. The final results continue to be due 120 days after the 
publication of the preliminary results.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
