SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Department) is conducting an administrative review (AR) and 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). The administrative review covers four exporters, of which the Department selected one mandatory respondent for individual examination (i.e., Changshan Peer Bearing Co. Ltd. (CPZ/SKF)). The NSR covers Shanghai Tainai Bearing Co., Ltd. (Tainai). The period of review (POR) is June 1, 2012, through May 31, 2013. We preliminarily determined that sales have been made below normal value (NV). If these preliminary results are adopted in the final results of these reviews, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results. DATES: Effective Date: July 23, 2014.

and Partial Rescission of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review 
and Preliminary Results of the New Shipper Review; 2012-2013

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Department) is conducting an 
administrative review (AR) and 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). The administrative review covers four exporters, of which the 
Department selected one mandatory respondent for individual examination 
(i.e., Changshan Peer Bearing Co. Ltd. (CPZ/SKF)). The NSR covers 
Shanghai Tainai Bearing Co., Ltd. (Tainai). The period of review (POR) 
is June 1, 2012, through May 31, 2013.
    We preliminarily determined that sales have been made below normal 
value (NV). If these preliminary results are adopted in the final 
results of these reviews, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary 
results.

DATES: Effective Date: July 23, 2014.

Tolling of Deadlines for Preliminary Results

    As explained in the memorandum from the Assistant Secretary for 
Enforcement and Compliance, the Department exercised its discretion to 
toll deadlines for the duration of the closure of the Federal 
Government from October 1, 2013, through October 16, 2013.\2\ 
Therefore, all deadlines in this segment of the proceeding have been 
extended by 16 days. The revised deadline for the preliminary results 
of this review is now July 16, 2014.

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

Partial Rescission of the Administrative Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party who requested 
the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of 
publication of notice of initiation of the requested review. On 
September 20, 2013, and November 13, 2013, Xiangyang Automobile Bearing 
Co., Ltd. (Xiangyang) and GGB Bearing Technology (Suzhou) Co., Ltd. 
(GGB)

[[Page 42759]]

timely withdrew their requests for an administrative review.\3\ No 
other party had requested a review of Xiangyang or GGB. Based on the 
timely withdrawal of the requests for review and because Xiangyang and 
GGB established their entitlement to separate rates from a prior 
segment, the Department is rescinding this administrative review with 
respect to Xiangyang and GGB, in accordance with 19 CR 351.213(d)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

People's Republic of China (POR: 06/01/12-5/31/13)'' (November 13, 
2013). GGB's letter was timely given the tolling of deadlines, 
explained above.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Methodology

    The Department conducted these reviews in accordance with sections 
751(a)(1)(A) and 751(a)(2)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the Act). Constructed export prices and export prices have been 
calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Because the PRC 
is a non-market economy (NME) within the meaning of section 771(18) of 
the Act, NV has been calculated in accordance with section 773(c) of 
the Act. Specifically, the respondents' factors of production have been 
valued using surrogate values from Thailand, which is economically 
comparable to the PRC and a significant producer of comparable 
merchandise.
    For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.\4\ The

* This company demonstrated that it qualified for a separate rate in
  this administrative review. The rate for this company is the
  calculated weighted-average dumping margin for CPZ/SKF. See the
  Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

    Regarding the NSR, we preliminarily determine that the following 
weighted-average dumping margin exists for the period June 1, 2012, 
through May 31, 2013:

    \6\ See 19 CFR 351.309(d).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Any interested party may request a hearing within 30 days of 
publication of this notice.\7\ Hearing requests should contain the

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

    \7\ See 19 CFR 351.310(c).
    \8\ See 19 CFR 351.310(d).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department will issue the final results of this administrative 
review and this NSR, which will include the results of its analysis of 
all issues raised in the case briefs, within 120 days of publication of 
these preliminary results, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department shall determine, 
and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries 
covered by these reviews.\9\ The Department intends to issue assessment 
instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication of the final results 
of these reviews.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For each individually-examined respondent in these reviews (i.e., 
CPZ/SKF and Tainai) which has a weighted-average dumping margin which 
is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), we will 
calculate importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on 
the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer's 
examined sales to the total entered value of those sales, in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). For the respondents which were not selected 
for individual examination in this administrative review and which 
qualified for a separate rate, the assessment rate will be equal to the 
weighted-average dumping margin assigned to CPZ/SKF in the final 
results of this administrative review.
    The Department recently announced a refinement to its assessment 
practice in NME cases.\10\ Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for 
entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by 
companies individually examined during this review, the Department will 
instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the NME-wide rate. In 
addition, if the Department determines that an exporter under review 
had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that 
entered under that exporter's case number (i.e., at that exporter's 
rate) will be liquidated at the NME-wide rate. For a full discussion of 
this practice, see NME Antidumping Proceedings.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment 
of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011) (NME 
Antidumping Proceedings).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries covered by these reviews. Where either of the 
respondent's weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or 
an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis,

[[Page 42760]]

we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without 
regard to antidumping duties.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the exporters 
listed above which have a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be 
the rate established in the final results of this review (except, if 
the rate is zero or de minimis, then a cash deposit rate of zero will 
be established for that company); (2) for previously investigated or 
reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above that have separate 
rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific 
rate published for the most recently completed segment of this 
proceeding; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have 
not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate 
will be the rate for the PRC-wide entity, 92.84 percent; and (4) for 
all non-PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not received 
their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to 
the PRC exporter(s) that supplied that non-PRC exporter.
    With respect to the NSR, consistent with the Department's practice, 
the Department has established a combination cash deposit rate for 
Tainai as follows: (1) For subject merchandise exported and produced by 
Tainai, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the 
company in the final results of this review; (2) for subject 
merchandise exported by Tainai but not produced by Tainai, the cash 
deposit rate will be the rate for the PRC-wide entity, 92.84 percent; 
(3) for subject merchandise produced by Tainai but not exported by 
Tainai, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to that 
exporter.
    These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect 
until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a preliminary 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 Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    We are issuing and publishing these preliminary results of reviews 
in accordance with sections 751(a)(l), 751(a)(2)(B) and 777(i)(l) of 
the Act, and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: July 16, 2014.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
