This merchandise is cut to lengths varying from one inch (25 mm) to five inches (127 mm). The merchandise subject to the order may be coated, usually with a silicon, or other finish, or not coated. Polyester staple fiber is generally used as stuffing in sleeping bags, mattresses, ski jackets, comforters, cushions, pillows, and furniture. Merchandise of less than 3.3 decitex (less than 3 denier) currently classifiable in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) at subheading 5503.20.00.25 is specifically excluded from the order. Also, specifically excluded from the order are polyester staple fibers of 10 to 18 denier that are cut to lengths of 6 to 8 inches (fibers used in the manufacture of carpeting). In addition, low-melt polyester staple fiber is excluded from the order. Low-melt polyester staple fiber is defined as a bi-component fiber with an outer sheath that melts at a significantly lower temperature than its inner core. The merchandise subject to the order is currently classifiable in the HTSUS at subheadings 5503.20.00.45 and 5503.20.00.65.

VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:40 Aug 23, 2011 Jkt 223001 Rescission of Antidumping Administrative Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party who requested the administrative review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested administrative review. On June 28, and July 11, 2011, Petitioners withdrew their request for an administrative review of Huvis and Woongjin, respectively. On July 7, and July 11, 2011, Woongjin and Huvis, respectively, withdrew their requests for an administrative review. As Petitioners, Huvis, and Woongjin withdrew their requests for an administrative review within the 90-day period, the Department is rescinding this administrative review. Assessment Instructions The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to assess antidumping duties at the cash deposit rate in effect at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice of rescission of administrative review. Notification to Importers This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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 subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order This notice serves as a final reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (‘‘APO’’) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). 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 sanctionable violation. We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).

SUMMARY: On April 21, 2011, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the preliminary results of the administrative reviews of the antidumping duty orders on ball bearings and parts thereof from France, Germany, and Italy. The period of review is May 1, 2009, through April 30, 2010. Based on our analysis of the comments received, we have made changes, including corrections of certain programming and other errors in the margin calculations. Therefore, the final results are different from the preliminary results for certain respondents. The final weighted-average dumping margins for the reviewed respondents are listed below in the section entitled ‘‘Final Results of the Reviews.’’ We have also determined that Schaeffler Technologies GmbH & Co. KG (Schaeffler Technologies) is the successor-in-interest to Schaeffler KG with respect to the order on ball bearings and parts thereof from Germany. AGENCY: DATES: Effective Date: August 24, 2011.

The orders cover 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 orders. 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 orders 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 orders. 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 orders. For a list of scope determinations which pertain to the orders, see the ‘‘Memorandum to Laurie Parkhill’’ regarding scope determinations for the 2009/2010 reviews, dated April 14, 2011, which is on file in the Central Records Unit (CRU) of the main Commerce building, Room 7046, in the General Issues record (A–100–001).
