(‘‘ZXY’’).1 We gave interested parties an opportunity to comment on the Intent to Rescind Memorandum. We did not receive any comments from the interested parties.

Frankel, Office Director, through Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, Intent to Rescind the New Shipper Review of Xiang Yang Automobile Bearing Co., Ltd.

VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:29 Jul 19, 2011 Jkt 223001 Case History On January 14, 2011, the Department received a timely request from ZXY for an NSR of the antidumping duty order on tapered roller bearings and parts thereof, finished and unfinished, from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). On February 4, 2011, the Department published the initiation of the NSR with a June 1, 2010, through November 30, 2010 period of review (‘‘POR’’).2 On June 17, 2011, the Department issued a memorandum announcing its intent to rescind this NSR for ZXY because ZXY shipped subject merchandise to the United States more than one year prior to its request for an NSR. See Intent to Rescind Memorandum. The Department did not receive any comments in response to the Intent to Rescind Memorandum. Scope of the Order Imports covered by the order are shipments of tapered roller bearings and parts thereof, finished and unfinished, from the PRC; flange, take up cartridge, and hanger units incorporating tapered roller bearings; and tapered roller housings (except pillow blocks) incorporating tapered rollers, with or without spindles, whether or not for automotive use. These products are currently classifiable under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) item numbers 8482.20.00, 8482.91.00.50, 8482.99.15, 8482.99.45, 8483.20.40, 8483.20.80, 8483.30.80, 8483.90.20, 8483.90.30, 8483.90.80, 8708.99.80.15 3 and 8708.99.80.80.4 Although the HTSUS item numbers are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. Rescission of Review As stated in the Intent to Rescind Memorandum, the Department has determined that ZXY is not a new shipper, because ZXY shipped subject merchandise one year prior to its request for an NSR. Therefore, ZXY is not entitled to an NSR for this entry currently under review because ZXY 2 See Tapered Roller Bearings and Parts Thereof, Finished and Unfinished From the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review, 76 FR 6397 (February 4, 2011). 3 Effective January 1, 2007, the HTSUS subheading 8708.99.8015 is renumbered as 8708.99.8115.

Accordingly, we are rescinding this NSR. Because the Department is rescinding this NSR, we are not determining whether ZXY is separate from the PRC-wide entity, and we are not calculating a companyspecific rate for ZXY. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of this rescission of the NSR for all shipments of subject merchandise exported by ZXY, entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘Act’’): (1) For subject merchandise exported by ZXY (regardless of producer), as part of the PRC-wide entity, the cash deposit rate will be 92.84 percent; and (2) for subject merchandise manufactured by ZXY, but exported by any party other than ZXY, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the exporter. These cash deposit requirements will remain in effect until further notice. Liquidation Because the POR of this NSR falls within the POR of the next administrative review of TRBs from the PRC (June 1, 2010 through May 31, 2011), and the initiation of that administrative review has not yet occurred, the Department will not order liquidation of entries for the PRC-entity (of which ZXY is a part) at this time. Upon completion of the June 1, 2010, through May 31, 2011, administrative review, the Department will issue assessment instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection as appropriate. This notice serves as a reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) 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 Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

However, the Department may extend the deadline for completion of the preliminary results of a new shipper review to 300 days if it determines that the case is extraordinarily complicated.4 Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review [A–570–928] DATES: the Department extended the deadline for the preliminary results of this review to June 1, 2011.2 On June 13, 2011, the Department extended the deadline for the preliminary results of this review to July 15, 2011.3 43263 The Department has determined that the review is extraordinarily complicated as the Department must analyze the responses to supplemental questionnaires concerning Quan Li’s and Yongnuo’s sales practices and factors of production. Moreover, the Department needs additional time to analyze the bona fide nature of Quan Li’s and Yongnuo’s sales, which includes gathering data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Based on the timing of the case and the additional information that must be gathered, the preliminary results of this new shipper review cannot be completed within the current time limits. Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results of this new shipper review by an additional 11 days from the July 15, 2011, deadline. As a result, the preliminary results will now be due no later than July 26, 2011. The final results continue to be due 90 days after the issuance of the preliminary results.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Case History

    On January 14, 2011, the Department received a timely request from 
ZXY for an NSR of the antidumping duty order on tapered roller bearings 
and parts thereof, finished and unfinished, from the People's Republic 
of China (``PRC''). On February 4, 2011, the Department published the 
initiation of the NSR with a June 1, 2010, through November 30, 2010 
period of review (``POR'').\2\

Unfinished From the People's Republic of China: Initiation of 
Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review, 76 FR 6397 (February 4, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On June 17, 2011, the Department issued a memorandum announcing its 
intent to rescind this NSR for ZXY because ZXY shipped subject 
merchandise to the United States more than one year prior to its 
request for an NSR. See Intent to Rescind Memorandum. The Department 
did not receive any comments in response to the Intent to Rescind 
Memorandum.

Scope of the Order

    Imports covered by the order are shipments of tapered roller 
bearings and parts thereof, finished and unfinished, from the PRC; 
flange, take up cartridge, and hanger units incorporating tapered 
roller bearings; and tapered roller housings (except pillow blocks) 
incorporating tapered rollers, with or without spindles, whether or not 
for automotive use. These products are currently classifiable under 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS'') item 
numbers 8482.20.00, 8482.91.00.50, 8482.99.15, 8482.99.45, 8483.20.40,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rescission of Review

    As stated in the Intent to Rescind Memorandum, the Department has 
determined that ZXY is not a new shipper, because ZXY shipped subject 
merchandise one year prior to its request for an NSR. Therefore, ZXY is 
not entitled to an NSR for this entry currently under review because 
ZXY did not fulfill the requirements under 19 CFR 351.214(c) that the 
NSR be requested within one year of the date on which subject 
merchandise was first entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption. Accordingly, we are rescinding this NSR. Because the 
Department is rescinding this NSR, we are not determining whether ZXY 
is separate from the PRC-wide entity, and we are not calculating a 
company-specific rate for ZXY.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of this rescission of the NSR for all shipments of subject 
merchandise exported by ZXY, entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after the publication date, as provided by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``Act''): (1) For 
subject merchandise exported by ZXY (regardless of producer), as part 
of the PRC-wide entity, the cash deposit rate will be 92.84 percent; 
and (2) for subject merchandise manufactured by ZXY, but exported by 
any party other than ZXY, the cash deposit rate will be the rate 
applicable to the exporter. These cash deposit requirements will remain 
in effect until further notice.

Liquidation

    Because the POR of this NSR falls within the POR of the next 
administrative review of TRBs from the PRC (June 1, 2010 through May 
31, 2011), and the initiation of that administrative review has not yet 
occurred, the Department will not order liquidation of entries for the 
PRC-entity (of which ZXY is a part) at this time. Upon completion of 
the June 1, 2010, through May 31, 2011, administrative review, the 
Department will issue assessment instructions to U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection as appropriate.
    This notice serves as a reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) 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 Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (``APO'') of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance

[[Page 43263]]

with 19 CFR 351.305, which continues to govern business proprietary 
information in this segment of the proceeding. Timely written 
notification of the return/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 violation which is 
subject to sanction.
    We are issuing and publishing this determination in accordance with 
section 777(i) of the Act, 19 CFR 351.214(h) and 351.221(b)(5).

    Dated: July 14, 2011.
