SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Department) has determined that Shanghai Tainai Bearing Co., Ltd.’s (Tainai’s) request for a new shipper review (NSR) of the antidumping duty order on tapered roller bearings and parts thereof, finished and unfinished (TRBs), from the People’s Republic of China (PRC) meets the statutory and regulatory requirements for initiation. The period of review (POR) for this NSR is June 1, 2012, through May 31, 2013. DATES: As of July 30, 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On June 15, 1987, the Department published in the Federal Register the antidumping duty order on TRBs from the PRC.1 On June 21, 2013, pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the Department received a properly filed NSR request from Tainai during the anniversary month 2 of the antidumping duty order. In its request, Tainai certified that it is both a producer and exporter of TRBs 1 See Antidumping Duty Order; Tapered Roller Bearings and Parts Thereof, Finished or Unfinished, From the People’s Republic of China, 52 FR 22667 (June 15, 1987). 2 See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 78 FR 33061 (June 3, 2013). PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 from the PRC. Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(I) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(i), Tainai certified that it did not export TRBs to the United States during the period of investigation (POI).3 In addition, pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(II) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(A), Tainai certified that, since the initiation of the investigation, it has never been affiliated with any PRC exporter or producer who exported TRBs to the United States during the POI, including those respondents not individually examined during the investigation.4 As required by 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(B), Tainai also certified that its export activities were not controlled by the government of the PRC.5 In addition to the certifications described above, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iv)(A), (B) and (C), Tainai submitted documentation establishing the following: (1) The date on which Tainai first shipped TRBs for export to the United States and the date on which the TRBs were first entered; (2) the volume of its first shipment; and (3) the date of its first sale to an unaffiliated customer in the United States.6 The Department conducted U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) database queries in an attempt to confirm that Tainai’s shipment of subject merchandise had entered the United States for consumption and that liquidation of this entry had been properly suspended for antidumping duties. The Department also examined whether the CBP data confirmed that this entry was made during the POR. The information the Department examined was consistent with that provided by Tainai. After the initiation of the NSR, the Department intends to place additional CBP data on the record and, if necessary, request additional information from Tainai. Period of Review In accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(g)(1)(i)(A), the POR for an NSR initiated in the month immediately following the anniversary month will be the twelve-month period immediately preceding the anniversary month. Therefore, the POR for this NSR is June 1, 2012, through May 31, 2013. Based on the information provided by Tainai, the sale and entry into the United States of subject merchandise produced and exported by Tainai occurred during this twelve-month POR. 3 See Tainai’s June 21, 2013, submission, at Exhibit 1. 4 Id. 5 Id. 6 See Tainai’s June 21, 2013, submission, at Exhibit 2.
