SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The products covered by the order 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. Imports of these products are classified under the following Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings: 3926.90.45, 4016.93.10, 4016.93.50, 6909.19.50.10, 8414.90.41.75, 8431.20.00, 8431.39.00.10, 8482.10.10, 8482.10.50, 8482.80.00, 8482.91.00, 8482.99.05, 8482.99.35, 8482.99.25.80, 8482.99.65.95, 8483.20.40, 8483.20.80, 8483.30.40, 8483.30.80, 8483.50.90, 8483.90.20, 8483.90.30, 8483.90.70, 8708.50.50, 8708.60.50, 8708.60.80, 8708.93.30, 8708.93.60.00, 8708.99.06, 8708.99.31.00, 8708.99.40.00, 8708.99.49.60, 8708.99.58, 8708.99.80.15, 8708.99.80.80, 8803.10.00, 8803.20.00, 8803.30.00, 8803.90.30, 8803.90.90, 8708.30.50.90, 8708.40.75.70, 8708.40.75.80, PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 8708.50.79.00, 8708.50.89.00, 8708.50.91.50, 8708.50.99.00, 8708.70.60.60, 8708.80.65.90, 8708.93.75.00, 8708.94.75, 8708.95.20.00, 8708.99.55.00, 8708.99.68, and 8708.99.81.80. Although the HTSUS item numbers above are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written descriptions of the scope of the order remain dispositive. The size or precision grade of a bearing does not influence whether the bearing is covered by one of the order. The order covers 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 order. 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 order 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 order. 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 order. Changes Since the Preliminary Results We have not revised our calculations since our publication of the Preliminary Results. Thus, the weighted-average dumping margins for the companies under review for our final results remain unchanged. Final Results of the Review As a result of the administrative review, we determine that the following weighted-average dumping margins exist for the respondents for the period May 1, 2011, through September 14, 2011.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on narrow woven ribbons with woven selvedge (narrow woven ribbons) from Taiwan. Two of the companies for which this administrative review was requested, Intercontinental Skyline and Pacific Imports, failed to respond to the Department’s quantity and value questionnaire. As a result, we have preliminarily assigned these companies a margin based on adverse facts available (AFA). The period of review (POR) is September 1, 2011, through August 31, 2012. If these preliminary results are adopted in the final results of this review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.

The HTSUS statistical categories and subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes; however, the written description of the merchandise covered by this order is dispositive. Methodology The Department has conducted this review in accordance with section 751(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). In these preliminary results, we have relied on facts available and, because the respondents did not act to the best of their abilities to respond to the Department’s request for information, we have drawn an adverse inference in selecting from among the facts otherwise available.2 Pursuant to section 776(b) of the Act, we are relying on information from the petition in order to ensure that the AFA rate is sufficiently adverse so as to induce cooperation. Accordingly, we have preliminarily determined to apply a 137.20 percent rate as AFA for Intercontinental Skyline and Pacific Imports. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, which is hereby adopted by this notice. The Preliminary 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).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On February 11, 2013, the Department published the preliminary 
results of its administrative review and partial rescission of the 
antidumping duty order on ball bearings and parts thereof from Germany. 
See Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof from Germany: Preliminary Results 
of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Partial Rescission; 2011-
2011, 78 FR 9764 (February 11, 2013) (Preliminary Results). We invited 
interested parties to comment on the Preliminary Results. We received 
no comments from interested parties.
    The Department has conducted this administrative review in 
accordance with section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act).

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by the order 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.
    Imports of these products are classified under the following

the HTSUS item numbers above are provided for convenience and customs 
purposes, the written descriptions of the scope of the order remain

    The size or precision grade of a bearing does not influence whether 
the bearing is covered by one of the order. The order covers 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 order. For unfinished parts, such parts are 
included if they have been heat-treated or if heat treatment is not 
required to be performed on the part. Thus, the only unfinished parts 
that are not covered by the order 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 order. 
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 order.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    We have not revised our calculations since our publication of the 
Preliminary Results. Thus, the weighted-average dumping margins for the 
companies under review for our final results remain unchanged.

Final Results of the Review

    As a result of the administrative review, we determine that the 
following weighted-average dumping margins exist for the respondents 
for the period May 1, 2011, through September 14, 2011.

Assessment Rates

    In accordance with the Final Modification,\2\ we will instruct U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to liquidate entries covered in 
this review without regard to antidumping duties.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ 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 POR produced by myonic GmbH for which it did not 
know its 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).
    We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    Because the antidumping duty order on ball bearings and parts 
thereof from Germany has been revoked as a result of the Third Sunset 
Review, the Department will not issue cash deposit instructions at the 
conclusion of this administrative review.

Notifications to Parties

    This notice serves as a 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 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 review are issued and 
published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the 
Act.

    Dated: May 14, 2013.
