Given the number and complexity of the issues involved, the Department addressed the Dispute Settlement Body’s findings through separate preliminary determination memoranda with respect to each of the issues addressed in WTO DS 379. Specifically, the Department issued the preliminary determinations regarding: A.

SUMMARY: As a result of the determinations by the Department of 
Commerce (``Department'') and the International Trade Commission 
(``ITC'') that revocation of the antidumping duty order on tapered 
roller bearings and parts thereof, finished and unfinished (``TRBs''), 
from the People's Republic of China (``PRC'') would likely lead to a 
continuation or recurrence of dumping and material injury to an 
industry in the United States, the Department is publishing a notice of 
continuation of the antidumping duty order.

DATES: Effective Date: August 30, 2012.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Lindsey Novom, AD/CVD Operations,
