We invited interested parties to comment on the Preliminary Results. We received case and rebuttal briefs from various parties to the proceedings. On October 16, 2012, we issued a post-preliminary analysis in which we addressed the targeted dumping allegations made by the petitioner and invited comments from interested parties.2 We received additional briefs from interested parties commenting on the Post-Preliminary Analysis. On July 5, 2012, the petitioner requested hearings with respect to these reviews on ball bearings and parts thereof from France and Germany. The petitioner and SKF Italy requested a hearing with respect to the review on ball bearings from Italy. On November 14, 2012, the petitioner withdrew its hearing request with respect to France and Germany. On November 21, 2012, the Department conducted a hearing on the review of ball bearings and parts thereof from to Italy. The Department has conducted these administrative reviews in accordance with section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).

Analysis of the Comments Received All issues raised in the case briefs by parties to these administrative reviews are addressed in the ‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum’’ (Decision Memorandum) from Gary Taverman, Senior Advisor for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, to Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, dated concurrently with this notice, which is hereby adopted by this notice. A list of the issues which parties have raised and to which we have responded is in the Decision Memorandum and attached to this notice as an Appendix. The Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically via Import Administration’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (‘‘IA ACCESS’’). IA ACCESS is available to registered users at http:// iaaccess.trade.gov and it is available to all parties in the Central Records Unit (‘‘CRU’’), room 7046 of the main Department of Commerce building. In addition, a complete version of the Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly on the internet at http:// www.trade.gov/ia/frn/index.html. The signed Decision Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Decision Memorandum are identical in content. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with Rates for Non-Selected Companies Based on available resources, we selected certain companies for individual examination of their sales of the subject merchandise to the United States during the period of review as permitted under section 777A(c)(2) of the Act. For a detailed discussion on the selection of the respondents for individual examination, see Preliminary Results, 77 FR at 33160 through 33161. For the final results, we have not changed the rates we applied to respondents not selected for individual examination. Rescission of Review in Part In accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d), the Department will rescind an administrative review in part ‘‘if a party that requested a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:30 Dec 07, 2012 Jkt 229001 of the publication of notice of initiation of the requested review.’’ On September 7, 2011, Intertechnique SAS (‘‘Intertechnique’’) timely withdrew its request for an administrative review. However, in the Preliminary Results we inadvertently did not include Intertechnique in the list of companies for which the review was rescinded. Instead, we preliminarily assigned Intertechnique the rate for all nonselected respondents from France. Because there are no other requests for review for Intertechnique, we are rescinding the review with respect to Intertechnique, effective June 5, 2012, the date of publication of the Preliminary Results, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on our analysis of the comments received, we have corrected programming and other errors in the weighted-average dumping margins which we included in the Preliminary Results, where applicable. These changes, however, did not affect the final weighted-average dumping margins for the reviewed respondents. A detailed discussion of each correction we made is in the company-specific analysis memoranda dated concurrently with this notice, which are on file electronically via IA ACCESS and in the CRU of the main Commerce building. Sales Below Cost in the Home Market Pursuant to section 773(b)(1) of the Act, the Department disregarded sales in the home market that failed the cost-ofproduction test for the following firms for these final results of reviews: France—NTN–SNR; Germany—myonic GmbH; Italy—Schaeffler Italia S.r.l./ WPB Water Pump Bearing GmbH & Co. KG/Schaeffler Italia SpA/The Schaeffler Group and SKF Industries S.p.A./ Somecat S.p.A./SKF RIV–SKF Officine di Villar Perosa S.p.A.

This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the period of review produced by companies selected for individual examination in the reviews for which the reviewed companies did not know their merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the country-specific all-others rate if there is no rate for the 3 See Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012) (Final Modification).

For a full discussion of this clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). For the companies which were not selected for individual examination, we will instruct CBP to apply the rates listed above to all entries of subject merchandise produced and/or exported by such firms. We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of these reviews. Cash Deposit Requirements Because we revoked the order effective September 15, 2011, no cash deposit for estimated antidumping duties on future entries of subject merchandise is required.4 This notice serves as a final 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 Department’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties. This notice also serves as a 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 notification of the destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation. These final results of administrative reviews are issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1), 751(b)(1), and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

Other Issues Scope of the Order The products covered by the order are all finished circular sawblades, whether slotted or not, with a working part that is comprised of a diamond segment or segments, and parts thereof, regardless of specification or size, except as specifically excluded below. Within the scope of the order are semifinished diamond sawblades, including diamond sawblade cores and diamond sawblade segments. Diamond sawblade cores are circular steel plates, whether or not attached to non-steel plates, with slots. Diamond sawblade cores are manufactured principally, but not exclusively, from alloy steel. A diamond sawblade segment consists of a mixture of diamonds (whether natural or synthetic, and regardless of the quantity of diamonds) and metal powders PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 73417 (including, but not limited to, iron, cobalt, nickel, tungsten carbide) that are formed together into a solid shape (from generally, but not limited to, a heating and pressing process). Sawblades with diamonds directly attached to the core with a resin or electroplated bond, which thereby do not contain a diamond segment, are not included within the scope of the order. Diamond sawblades and/or sawblade cores with a thickness of less than 0.025 inches, or with a thickness greater than 1.1 inches, are excluded from the scope of the order. Circular steel plates that have a cutting edge of non-diamond material, such as external teeth that protrude from the outer diameter of the plate, whether or not finished, are excluded from the scope of the order. Diamond sawblade cores with a Rockwell C hardness of less than 25 are excluded from the scope of the order. Diamond sawblades and/or diamond segment(s) with diamonds that predominantly have a mesh size number greater than 240 (such as 250 or 260) are excluded from the scope of the order. Merchandise subject to the order is typically imported under heading 8202.39.00.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’). When packaged together as a set for retail sale with an item that is separately classified under headings 8202 to 8205 of the HTSUS, diamond sawblades or parts thereof may be imported under heading 8206.00.00.00 of the HTSUS. On October 11, 2011, the Department included the 6804.21.00.00 HTSUS classification number to the customs case reference file, pursuant to a request by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’).1 The tariff classification is provided for convenience and customs purposes; however, the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. Fraud Allegation The petitioner, Diamond Sawblades Manufacturers’ Coalition, alleges that Chinese and Korean producers of diamond sawblades sold subject merchandise in the United States bearing a false country of origin designation and requests that the Department take information related to this allegation into consideration in both the first and second administrative reviews. We continue to examine this allegation. The Department recently completed verifications in the first administrative review at which the facts 1 See Diamond Sawblades and Parts Thereof From the Republic of Korea: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 76 FR 76128 (December 6, 2011).

the rates we applied to respondents not selected for individual 
examination.

Rescission of Review in Part

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d), the Department will rescind 
an administrative review in part ``if a party that requested a review 
withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of the publication of 
notice of initiation of the requested review.'' On September 7, 2011, 
Intertechnique SAS (``Intertechnique'') timely withdrew its request for 
an administrative review. However, in the Preliminary Results we 
inadvertently did not include Intertechnique in the list of companies 
for which the review was rescinded. Instead, we preliminarily assigned 
Intertechnique the rate for all non-selected respondents from France. 
Because there are no other requests for review for Intertechnique, we 
are rescinding the review with respect to Intertechnique, effective 
June 5, 2012, the date of publication of the Preliminary Results, in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our analysis of the comments received, we have corrected 
programming and other errors in the weighted-average dumping margins 
which we included in the Preliminary Results, where applicable. These 
changes, however, did not affect the final weighted-average dumping 
margins for the reviewed respondents. A detailed discussion of each 
correction we made is in the company-specific analysis memoranda dated 
concurrently with this notice, which are on file electronically via IA 
ACCESS and in the CRU of the main Commerce building.

Sales Below Cost in the Home Market

    Pursuant to section 773(b)(1) of the Act, the Department 
disregarded sales in the home market that failed the cost-of-production 
test for the following firms for these final results of reviews: 
France--NTN-SNR; Germany--myonic GmbH; Italy--Schaeffler Italia S.r.l./
WPB Water Pump Bearing GmbH & Co. KG/Schaeffler Italia SpA/The 
Schaeffler Group and SKF Industries S.p.A./Somecat S.p.A./SKF RIV-SKF 
Officine di Villar Perosa S.p.A.

Final Results of the Reviews

    We determine that the following weighted-average dumping margins on 
ball bearings and parts thereof exist for the period May 1, 2010, 
through April 30, 2011:

Assessment Rates

    In accordance with the Final Modification, we will instruct U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to liquidate the reviews' entries 
without regard to antidumping duties.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-
Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012) 
(Final Modification).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003. This clarification will apply to entries of subject 
merchandise during the period of review produced by companies selected 
for individual examination in the reviews for which the reviewed 
companies did not know their merchandise was destined for the United 
States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed 
entries at the country-specific all-others rate if there is no rate for 
the

intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. For a full 
discussion of this clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 
2003).
    For the companies which were not selected for individual 
examination, we will instruct CBP to apply the rates listed above to 
all entries of subject merchandise produced and/or exported by such 
firms.
    We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of these reviews.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    Because we revoked the order effective September 15, 2011, no cash 
deposit for estimated antidumping duties on future entries of subject 
merchandise is required.\4\

Duty Orders, 76 FR 57019 (September 15, 2011).

Notifications

    This notice serves as a final 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 Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.
    This notice also serves as a 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 notification of the 
destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order 
is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the 
terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.
    These final results of administrative reviews are issued and 
published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1), 751(b)(1), and 
777(i)(1) of the Act.

     Dated: December 4, 2012
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
