SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Exporter AGENCY: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: On May 15, 1989, the Department published in the Federal Register the antidumping duty orders on ball bearings and parts thereof from France, Germany, and Italy. See Antidumping Duty Orders: Ball Bearings, Cylindrical Roller Bearings, Spherical Plain Bearings, and Parts Thereof From France, 54 FR 20902 (May 15, 1989), 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), and Antidumping Duty Orders: Ball Bearings and Cylindrical Roller Bearings, and Parts Thereof From Italy, 54 FR 20903 (May 15, 1989). On August 1, 2011, the Department initiated the sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on ball bearings and parts thereof from France, Germany, and Italy pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). See Initiation Notice.1 We received no notice of intent to participate in response to the notice of initiation from domestic interested parties by the applicable deadline. See 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i). As a result, the Department has concluded that no domestic party intends to participate in the sunset reviews. See 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(iii)(A). On August 24, 2011, we notified the International Trade Commission, in writing, that we intend to revoke the antidumping duty orders on ball bearings and parts thereof from France, Germany, and Italy. See 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(iii)(B)(2). Scope of the Orders The products covered by the orders 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 parts thereof, and housed or mounted ball bearing units and parts thereof. 1 The Department inadvertently included two revoked antidumping duty orders in the Initiation Notice.

Although the HTSUS item numbers above are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written descriptions of the scope of the orders remain dispositive. The size or precision grade of a bearing does not influence whether the bearing is covered by one of the orders. 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 administrative 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).

Background On June 28, 2011, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on circular welded carbon steel pipes and tubes from Taiwan covering the period May 1, 2010, through April 30, 2011. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 76 FR 37781 (June 28, 2011). The review covers eight companies. The Petitioner was the sole party to request reviews of these eight companies. On August 8, 2011, the Petitioner withdrew its request for an administrative review for the following six companies: (1) E United Group; (2) Yieh Corp.; (3) Yieh Hsing Enterprise Co., Ltd.; (4) Far East Machinery Co. Ltd.; (5) Kao Hsing Chang Iron & Steel Corp. (also known as Kao Hsiung Chang Iron & Steel Corp.); and (6) Tension Steel Industries Co. Ltd. Partial Rescission The applicable regulation, 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), states that if a party that requested an administrative review VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:07 Sep 14, 2011 Jkt 223001 PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 withdraws the request within 90 days of the publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review, the Secretary will rescind the review. The Petitioner withdrew its review request with respect to six companies within the 90-day deadline, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). Therefore, in accordance with section 351.213(d)(1) of the Department’s regulations, we are partially rescinding this review with respect to the following six companies: (1) E United Group; (2) Yieh Corp.; (3) Yieh Hsing Enterprise Co., Ltd.; (4) Far East Machinery Co. Ltd.; (5) Kao Hsing Chang Iron & Steel Corp. (also known as Kao Hsiung Chang Iron & Steel Corp.); and (6) Tension Steel Industries Co. Ltd. This review will continue with respect to Yieh Phui Enterprise Co., Ltd. and Chung Hung Steel Corp. Assessment Instructions The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For the companies for which this review is rescinded, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required 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 directly to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice. Notification to Importers This notice serves as a final reminder to importers for whom this review is being rescinded 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 the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (APO) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding.

Revocation

    Pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.218(d)(1)(iii)(B)(3), if no domestic interested party files a 
notice of intent to participate, the Department shall issue a final 
determination revoking the order within 90 days of the initiation of 
the review. Because no domestic interested party filed a timely notice 
of intent to participate in the sunset reviews, the Department finds 
that no domestic interested party is participating in the sunset 
reviews. Therefore, we are revoking the antidumping duty orders on ball 
bearings and parts thereof from France, Germany, and Italy. The 
effective date of revocation is September 15, 2011, the fifth 
anniversary of the continuation of the antidumping duty orders. See 
Tapered Roller Bearings and Parts Thereof from the People's Republic of 
China and Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof from France, Germany, Italy, 
Japan, and the United Kingdom: Continuation of Antidumping Duty Orders, 
71 FR 54469 (September 15, 2006).
    Pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.222(i)(2)(i), the Department intends to issue instructions to U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection to terminate the suspension of 
liquidation of entries of the merchandise subject to the orders which 
were entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after 
September 15, 2011. Entries of subject merchandise prior to September, 
15, 2011, will continue to be subject to the suspension of liquidation 
and requirements for deposits of estimated antidumping duties. The 
Department will conduct administrative reviews of the orders with 
respect to subject merchandise entered prior to the effective date of 
revocation in response to appropriately filed requests for review.
    These final results of the five-year (sunset) reviews and notice 
are published in accordance with sections 751(c) and 777(i)(1) of the 
Act.
