In its third and fourth remand determinations,8 the ITC found that revocation of the Orders would not be likely to lead to the continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time. On April 20, 2011, the CIT affirmed the ITC’s fourth remand and entered judgment in the case.9 The CIT stayed the effect of its judgment temporarily but, lifted the stay on May 13, 2011.10 On May 17, 2011, the Federal Circuit issued a temporary stay of the judgment.11 On June 17, 2011, in response to the CIT’s entry of judgment in NSK, the Department published a notice of a court decision not in harmony with a Department determination, thereby suspending liquidation of all entries of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after July 11, 2005, that remained unliquidated, and not deemed liquidated, as of April 30, 2011.12 On July 6, 2011, the Federal Circuit’s stay lifted.13 Therefore, pursuant to the Sunset Review of Antidumping Duty Order: Amended Final Results, 71 FR 30378 (May 26, 2006). 7 See Certain Bearings From China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Singapore, and the United Kingdom, 71 FR 51850 (August 31, 2006), and ITC Publication 3876 (August 2006) entitled Certain Bearings from China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Singapore, and the United Kingdom, Investigation Nos. 731–TA–344, 391–A, 392–A and C, 393–A, 394–A, 396, and 399–A (Second Review). 8 See ITC Publication 4194, Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof From Japan and the United Kingdom, Investigation Nos. 731–TA–394A and 399A (Second Review) (Third Remand) (August 2010), and ITC Publication 4223, Certain Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof from Japan and the United Kingdom, Investigation Nos. 394–A and 399–A (Second Review) (Fourth Remand) (March 2011). 9 See NSK v.

Although the HTSUS item numbers above are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written descriptions of the scope of the Orders remain dispositive. The size or precision grade of a bearing does not influence whether the bearing is covered by one of the Orders. The Orders cover 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 Orders. 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 Orders 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 Orders. 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 Orders. Reinstatement of Antidumping Duty Orders Pursuant to the CIT’s November 18, 2013, order reinstating the ITC’s determination that the revocation of the Orders would be likely to lead to the continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time, the Department is reinstating the Orders consistent with section 751(d) of the Act. As a result of this reinstatement, the Department will resume discontinued administrative reviews of the Orders and intends to initiate new administrative reviews of the Orders, if requested. Furthermore, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to resume the collection of cash deposits for estimated antidumping duties at the rates in effect on July 15, 2011, the date on which the collection of cash deposits was discontinued.17 Resumption of Administrative Reviews As a result of the Revocation Notice, the Department discontinued all unfinished administrative reviews of the 17 See Revocation Notice, 76 FR at 41762–63.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) has received information sufficient to warrant reconsideration of a completed changed circumstances review (‘‘CCR’’) of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) originally conducted in 2007.1 Based on evidence uncovered in the sixth administrative review (‘‘AR6’’) of this proceeding,2 we find the information submitted by Hilltop International (‘‘Hilltop’’) 3 in this CCR contains material misrepresentations and, consequently, is unusable for any purposes. Accordingly, our original determination that Hilltop is the successor-in-interest to Yelin Enterprise Co. Hong Kong (‘‘Yelin’’) is reversed such that Hilltop should properly be considered part of the PRC-wide entity, absent a determination of its own rate separate from the PRC-wide entity.4 AGENCY: 1 See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review, 72 FR 33447 (June 18, 2007). 2 See Administrative Review of Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From the People’s Republic of China: Final Results, Partial Rescission of Sixth Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Determination Not To Revoke in Part, 77 FR 53856 (‘‘PRC Shrimp AR6 Final’’). 3 In the final results of the recently completed seventh administrative review, the Department noted that Hilltop, as in prior reviews, has reported that it is affiliated with Yangjiang City Yelin Hoitat Quick Frozen Seafood Co., Ltd., Fuqing Yihua Aquatic Food Co., Ltd., Yelin Enterprise Co., Ltd., Ocean Beauty Corporation, Ever Hope International Co., Ltd., Ocean Duke Corporation and Kingston Foods Corporation.

    On August 31, 2006, the ITC published its determination that, 
pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act, revocation of the Orders, among 
others, would be likely to lead to the continuation or recurrence of 
material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably 
foreseeable time.\7\ NSK Corporation, NSK Ltd., and NSK Europe Ltd. and 
JTEKT Corporation and Koyo Corporation of U.S.A. filed appeals of this 
determination with the CIT.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In its third and fourth remand determinations,\8\ the ITC found 
that revocation of the Orders would not be likely to lead to the 
continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the 
United States within a reasonably foreseeable time. On April 20, 2011, 
the CIT affirmed the ITC's fourth remand and entered judgment in the 
case.\9\ The CIT stayed the effect of its judgment temporarily but, 
lifted the stay on May 13, 2011.\10\ On May 17, 2011, the Federal 
Circuit issued a temporary stay of the judgment.\11\

    On June 17, 2011, in response to the CIT's entry of judgment in 
NSK, the Department published a notice of a court decision not in 
harmony with a Department determination, thereby suspending liquidation 
of all entries of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after July 11, 2005, that remained 
unliquidated, and not deemed liquidated, as of April 30, 2011.\12\

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On July 6, 2011, the Federal Circuit's stay lifted.\13\ Therefore, 
pursuant to the

CIT's judgment in NSK, the Department revoked the Orders.\14\ The CIT's 
NSK decision was appealed to the Federal Circuit.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On May 16, 2013, the Federal Circuit issued a decision reversing 
and vacating the CIT's decision in NSK, ordered the CIT to vacate the 
ITC's negative determination in the Third Remand and Fourth Remand, and 
ordered the CIT to reinstate the ITC's affirmative determination in ITC 
Publication 4131, Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof From Japan and the 
United Kingdom, Investigation Nos. 731-TA-394A and 399A (Second Review) 
(Second Remand) (January 2010).\15\ On November 18, 2013, the CIT 
reinstated the ITC's affirmative determination.\16\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \15\ See NSK May 2013.
    \16\ See NSK November 2013.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Therefore, pursuant to the CIT's November 18, 2013, order 
reinstating the ITC's affirmative material injury determination, the 
Department is reinstating the Orders.

Scope of the Orders

    The products covered by the Orders 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,

    Although the HTSUS item numbers above are provided for convenience 
and customs purposes, the written descriptions of the scope of the 
Orders remain dispositive.
    The size or precision grade of a bearing does not influence whether 
the bearing is covered by one of the Orders. The Orders cover 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 Orders. 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 Orders 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 Orders. 
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 Orders.

Reinstatement of Antidumping Duty Orders

    Pursuant to the CIT's November 18, 2013, order reinstating the 
ITC's determination that the revocation of the Orders would be likely 
to lead to the continuation or recurrence of material injury within a 
reasonably foreseeable time, the Department is reinstating the Orders 
consistent with section 751(d) of the Act. As a result of this 
reinstatement, the Department will resume discontinued administrative 
reviews of the Orders and intends to initiate new administrative 
reviews of the Orders, if requested.
    Furthermore, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) to resume the collection of cash deposits for 
estimated antidumping duties at the rates in effect on July 15, 2011, 
the date on which the collection of cash deposits was discontinued.\17\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \17\ See Revocation Notice, 76 FR at 41762-63. We instructed CBP 
to continue the suspension of liquidation of entries pending a 
``final and conclusive'' court decision. Id.

Resumption of Administrative Reviews

    As a result of the Revocation Notice, the Department discontinued 
all unfinished administrative reviews of the Orders.\18\ The unfinished 
administrative reviews covered the periods May 1, 2009, through April 
30, 2010, and May 1, 2010, through April 30, 2011.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \18\ See id., 76 FR at 41762.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We are hereby resuming the administrative reviews covering the 
period May 1, 2009, through April 30, 2010. At the time the Orders were 
revoked, we had issued the preliminary results of review for the 
administrative reviews covering the period May 1, 2009, through April 
30, 2010.\19\ Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act instructs that ``The 
administering authority shall make . . . a final determination under 
paragraph (1) within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary 
determination is published.'' Accordingly, we intend to issue our final 
results of reviews for the period May 1, 2009, through April 30, 2010, 
no later than 120 days after publication of this notice.

    We are also hereby resuming the administrative reviews covering the 
period May 1, 2010 through April 30, 2011. At the time the Orders were 
revoked, we had just initiated the administrative reviews covering the 
period May 1, 2010, through April 30, 2011.\20\ Section 751(a)(3)(A) of 
the Act instructs that ``The administering authority shall make a 
preliminary determination under subparagraph (A), (B), or (C) of 
paragraph (1) within 245 days after the last day of the month in which 
occurs the anniversary of the date of publication of the order, 
finding, or suspension agreement for which the review under paragraph 
(1) is requested.'' Accordingly, we intend to issue our preliminary 
results of reviews for the period May 1, 2010, through April 30, 2011, 
no later than 245 days after publication of this notice. The deadline 
for withdrawing requests for review covering the period May 1, 2010 
through April 30, 2011 will be 90 days

Subsequent Administrative Reviews

    Each year during the anniversary month of the publication of an 
antidumping or countervailing duty order, finding, or suspended 
investigation, an interested party, as defined in section 771(9) of the 
Act, may request, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213, that the 
Department conduct an administrative review of that antidumping or 
countervailing duty order, finding, or suspended investigation.
    Subsequent to the Revocation Notice, two anniversary months for 
these orders have passed (May 2012 and May 2013). Therefore, we intend 
to provide interested parties an opportunity to request administrative 
reviews of these Orders. We intend to provide interested parties with 
this opportunity simultaneously with the next anniversary month for 
these Orders (May 2014). If any reviews are requested, we intend to 
conduct the reviews simultaneously.

Advance Notification of Sunset Reviews

    Every five years, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act, the 
Department and the ITC automatically initiate and conduct a review to 
determine whether revocation of a countervailing or antidumping duty 
order or termination of an investigation suspended under section 704 or 
734 of the Act would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of 
dumping or a countervailable subsidy (as the case may be) and of 
material injury. The third sunset reviews of these orders were 
scheduled for initiation in August 2011 but were obviated by the 
Revocation Notice. This notice constitutes advance notification for the 
sunset reviews of these orders which we intend to initiate on January 
2, 2014.\22\
