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).

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.

The Department intends to issue the preliminary results of this NSR no later than 180 days from the date of initiation, and the final results no later than 270 days from the date of initiation, pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act. It is the Department’s usual practice, in cases involving non-market economy countries, to require that a company seeking to establish eligibility for an antidumping duty rate separate from the country-wide rate provide evidence of de jure and de facto absence of government control over the company’s export activities. Accordingly, we will issue a questionnaire to Tainai, which will include a section requesting information concerning Tainai’s eligibility for a separate rate. The review will proceed if the response provides sufficient indication that Tainai is not subject to either de jure or de facto government control with respect to its export of subject merchandise. We will instruct CBP to allow, at the option of the importer, the posting, until the completion of the review, of a bond or security in lieu of a cash deposit for each entry of the subject merchandise from Tainai in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(e). The bonding privilege will only apply to entries of subject merchandise both produced and exported by Tainai. To assist in its analysis of the bona fides of Tainai’s sales, upon initiation of this NSR, the Department will require Tainai to submit on an ongoing basis complete transaction information concerning any sales of subject merchandise to the United States that were made subsequent to the POR. 7 See Memorandum to the File from Stephen Banea, International Trade Compliance Analyst, Office 2, AD/CVD Operations, entitled ‘‘Tapered Roller Bearings and Parts Thereof, Finished and Unfinished, from the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of New Shipper Review,’’ dated concurrently with this notice.

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.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Elizabeth Eastwood or Stephen Banea, 
AD/CVD Operations, Office 2, Import Administration, International Trade

Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-
3874 or (202) 482-0656, respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \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).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In its request, Tainai certified that it is both a producer and 
exporter of TRBs 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\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See Tainai's June 21, 2013, submission, at Exhibit 1.
    \4\ Id.
    \5\ Id.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Tainai's June 21, 2013, submission, at Exhibit 2.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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.

Initiation of New Shipper Review

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act, 19 CFR 351.214(b), 19 
CFR 351.214(d)(1), and the information on the record, the Department 
finds that Tainai meets the threshold requirements for initiation of an 
NSR for shipments of TRBs from the PRC produced and exported by 
Tainai.\7\ If the information supplied by Tainai cannot be verified 
using CBP import data, or is otherwise found to be incorrect or 
insufficient during the course of this proceeding, the Department may 
rescind the review or apply facts available pursuant to section 776 of 
the Act, depending on the facts on record.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See Memorandum to the File from Stephen Banea, International 
Trade Compliance Analyst, Office 2, AD/CVD Operations, entitled 
``Tapered Roller Bearings and Parts Thereof, Finished and 
Unfinished, from the People's Republic of China: Initiation of New 
Shipper Review,'' dated concurrently with this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department intends to issue the preliminary results of this NSR 
no later than 180 days from the date of initiation, and the final 
results no later than 270 days from the date of initiation, pursuant to 
section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act.
    It is the Department's usual practice, in cases involving non-
market economy countries, to require that a company seeking to 
establish eligibility for an antidumping duty rate separate from the 
country-wide rate provide evidence of de jure and de facto absence of 
government control over the company's export activities. Accordingly, 
we will issue a questionnaire to Tainai, which will include a section 
requesting information concerning Tainai's eligibility for a separate 
rate. The review will proceed if the response provides sufficient 
indication that Tainai is not subject to either de jure or de facto 
government control with respect to its export of subject merchandise.
    We will instruct CBP to allow, at the option of the importer, the 
posting, until the completion of the review, of a bond or security in 
lieu of a cash deposit for each entry of the subject merchandise from 
Tainai in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act and 19 
CFR 351.214(e). The bonding privilege will only apply to entries of 
subject merchandise both produced and exported by Tainai.
    To assist in its analysis of the bona fides of Tainai's sales, upon 
initiation of this NSR, the Department will require Tainai to submit on 
an ongoing basis complete transaction information concerning any sales 
of subject merchandise to the United States that were made subsequent 
to the POR.
    Interested parties requiring access to proprietary information in 
this NSR should submit applications for disclosure under administrative 
protective order in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305 and 351.306. This 
initiation and notice are published in accordance with section 
751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214 and 351.221(c)(1)(i).
