See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 74 FR 68229, 68230–68231 (December 23, 2009). On December 22, 2010, the Department published the preliminary results of this antidumping duty administrative review.

The period of review for this administrative review is November 1, 2008, through October 31, 2009. The final results are currently due on April 21, 2011. VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:21 Feb 23, 2011 Jkt 223001 Extension of Time Limit for Final Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), provides that the Department will issue the final results in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. However, the Department may extend the deadline for completion of the final results of an administrative review to 180 days if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period. See section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2). The Department determines that it is not practicable to complete the final results of this administrative review by the current deadline of April 21, 2011. Specifically, the Department requires additional time to conduct verification and analyze issues raised by interested parties. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department has decided to extend the time limit for the final results from 120 days to 180 days; the final results will now be due no later than June 20, 2011. This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: February 15, 2011.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The Department published an antidumping duty order on ball 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).

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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The Department published an antidumping duty order on ball 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). On June 30, 2010, we initiated an administrative 
review of the order on ball bearings and parts thereof from Germany 
covering the period May 1, 2009, through April 30, 2010. See Initiation 
of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and 
Requests for Revocation in Part, 75 FR 37759 (June 30, 2010). After 
analysis of the quantity and value of the sales of ball bearings and 
parts thereof from Germany during the 2009-10 period of review, we 
selected Schaeffler KG as a respondent for individual examination. See 
the Memorandum to Laurie Parkhill entitled ``Ball Bearings and Parts 
Thereof from Germany--Selection of Respondents'' dated August 18, 2010, 
on the record of the 2009-10 review. On January 14, 2011, Schaeffler 
Technologies requested that the Department conduct a changed-
circumstance review to determine that Schaeffler Technologies is the 
successor-in-interest to Schaeffler KG.

    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

    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 heat-treated 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 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 
Schaeffler Technologies submitted in its January 14, 2011, letter, we 
find that we have 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 changed-circumstances review when we issue the 
preliminary results of the 2009-10 administrative review; we intend to 
issue the final results of the changed-circumstances 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 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).

     Dated: February 16, 2011.
