Rescission of Review in Part In accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d), the Department will rescind an administrative review in part ‘‘if a party that requested a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of the publication of notice of initiation of the requested review.’’ Subsequent to the initiation of the review with respect to the United Kingdom, we received timely withdrawals of the requests we had received for the review of SKF (UK) Limited SNFA Operations and SKF UK Limited Stonehouse Operations. Because there are no other requests for review of these firms, we are rescinding the review with respect to these companies in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Methodology The Department conducted these administrative reviews in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Constructed export price is calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Normal value is calculated in accordance with section 773 of the Act. The Department has determined the weighted-average dumping margins for Bayerische Motoren Werke AG in the administrative review concerning ball bearings from the United Kingdom, and Bosch Packaging Technology K.K., Bosch Rexroth Corporation and Hagglunds Ltd. in the administrative review concerning ball bearings from Japan based on facts otherwise available with an adverse inference pursuant to section 776 of the Act. For the remaining respondents in the administrative review concerning ball bearings from the United Kingdom, the Department based the weighted-average dumping margins on the rate that it calculated for NSK Bearings Europe Ltd. and NSK Europe Ltd. (collectively, NSK). For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see Preliminary Decision Memorandum. The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically via Enforcement and Compliance’s Antidumping and 9 See memorandum from Gary Taverman, Associate Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, to Ronald K.

The Department intends to issue the final results of these administrative reviews, including the results of its analysis of the issues raised in any written briefs, not later than 120 days after the date of publication of this notice, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. Assessment Rates Upon completion of the administrative reviews, the Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), for NSK we calculated an importer-specific assessment rate by dividing the total amount of dumping for the reviewed sales by the total entered value of those reviewed sales for each importer. We will direct CBP to assess the resulting assessment rate against the entered customs values for the subject merchandise on each of that importer’s entries during the review period.12 For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by NSK for which it did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. For a full discussion, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On February 21, 2013, the Department published the Amended Final Results. One Chinese exporter of tapered roller bearings from the PRC, Changshan Peer Bearing Co., Ltd., appealed the Department’s Amended Final Results to the CIT, and on May 2, 2014, the Court granted the Department’s request for a voluntary remand to reexamine the alleged currency conversion error in Changshan Peer Bearing Co., Ltd.’s reported further manufacturing costs.2 After reexamining Changshan Peer Bearing Co., Ltd.’s further manufacturing costs, the Department determined that the further manufacturing costs were reported in Thai baht (not U.S. dollars) and therefore required conversion into U.S. dollars. On August 19, 2014, the CIT affirmed the Department’s TRBs Final Remand, which resulted in a weightedaverage dumping margin of 0.00% for Changshan Peer Bearing Co., Ltd. Timken Notice In its decision in Timken, 893 F.2d at 341, as clarified by Diamond Sawblades, the CAFC held that, pursuant to section 516A(e) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), the Department must publish a notice of a court decision that is not ‘‘in harmony’’ with a Department determination and must suspend liquidation of entries pending a ‘‘conclusive’’ court decision. The CIT’s August 19, 2014 judgment sustaining the TRBs Final Remand constitutes a final decision of that court that is not in harmony with the Amended Final Results. This notice is published in fulfillment of the publication requirements of Timken.

    \9\ See memorandum from Gary Taverman, Associate Deputy 
Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations, to Ronald K. Lorentzen, Acting Assistant Secretary for 
Enforcement and Compliance, ``Decision Memorandum for Preliminary 
Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Ball Bearings and 
Parts Thereof from the United Kingdom and Japan'' dated concurrently 
with this notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum), which is hereby 
adopted by this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rescission of Review in Part

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d), the Department will rescind 
an administrative review in part ``if a party that requested a review 
withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of the publication of 
notice of initiation of the requested review.'' Subsequent to the 
initiation of the review with respect to the United Kingdom, we 
received timely withdrawals of the requests we had received for the 
review of SKF (UK) Limited SNFA Operations and SKF UK Limited 
Stonehouse Operations. Because there are no other requests for review 
of these firms, we are rescinding the review with respect to these 
companies in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).

Methodology

    The Department conducted these administrative reviews in accordance 
with section 751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act). Constructed export price is calculated in accordance with section 
772 of the Act. Normal value is calculated in accordance with section 
773 of the Act. The Department has determined the weighted-average 
dumping margins for Bayerische Motoren Werke AG in the administrative 
review concerning ball bearings from the United Kingdom, and Bosch 
Packaging Technology K.K., Bosch Rexroth Corporation and Hagglunds Ltd. 
in the administrative review concerning ball bearings from Japan based 
on facts otherwise available with an adverse inference pursuant to 
section 776 of the Act. For the remaining respondents in the 
administrative review concerning ball bearings from the United Kingdom, 
the Department based the weighted-average dumping margins on the rate 
that it calculated for NSK Bearings Europe Ltd. and NSK Europe Ltd. 
(collectively, NSK). For a full description of the methodology 
underlying our conclusions, see Preliminary Decision Memorandum.
    The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on 
file electronically via Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (IA ACCESS). 
Access to IA ACCESS is available to registered users at http://iaaccess.trade.gov and is available to all parties in the Central 
Records Unit, room 7046 of the main Department of Commerce building. In 
addition, a complete version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum can 
be accessed directly on the Internet at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/index.html. The signed Preliminary Decision Memorandum and the 
electronic versions of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are 
identical in content.

Preliminary Results of the Reviews

    As a result of these reviews, we preliminarily determine that the 
following weighted-average dumping margins on ball bearings from Japan 
and the United Kingdom exist for the period May 1, 2010, through April 
30, 2011:

Disclosure and Public Comment

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed to parties to 
these proceedings within five days of the date of publication of this 
notice in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b). Pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.309(c), interested parties may submit cases briefs not later than 
30 days after the date of publication of this notice. Rebuttal briefs, 
limited to issues raised in the case briefs, may be filed not later 
than five days after the date for filing case briefs.\10\ Parties who 
submit case briefs or rebuttal briefs in this proceeding are encouraged 
to submit with each argument: (1) A statement of the issue; (2) a brief 
summary of the argument; and (3) a table of authorities.\11\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ See 19 CFR 351.309(d).
    \11\ See 19 CFR 351.309(c)(2) and (d)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.310(c), interested parties who wish to 
request a hearing, or to participate if one is requested, must submit a 
written request to the Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and 
Compliance, filed electronically via IA ACCESS. An electronically filed 
document must be received successfully in its entirety by the 
Department's electronic records system, IA ACCESS, by 5:00 p.m. Eastern 
Time within 30 days after the date of publication of this notice. 
Requests should contain: (1) The party's name, address and telephone 
number; (2) the number of participants; and (3) a list of issues to be 
discussed. Issues raised in the hearing will be limited to those raised 
in the respective case briefs. The Department intends to issue the 
final results of these administrative reviews, including the results of 
its analysis of the issues raised in any written briefs, not later than 
120 days after the date of publication of this notice, pursuant to 
section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the administrative reviews, the Department will 
determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. In accordance with 19 
CFR 351.212(b)(1), for NSK we calculated an importer-specific 
assessment rate by dividing the total amount of dumping for the 
reviewed sales by the total entered value of those reviewed sales for 
each importer. We will direct CBP to assess the resulting assessment 
rate against the entered customs values for the subject merchandise on 
each of that importer's entries during the review period.\12\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by NSK 
for which it did not know its merchandise was destined for the United 
States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the 
all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) 
involved in the transaction. For a full discussion, see Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 
FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
    For the companies which were not selected for individual 
examination and for the companies to which we are applying adverse 
facts available, we will instruct CBP to apply the rates listed

[[Page 56773]]

above to all entries of subject merchandise produced and/or exported by 
such firms.
    We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of 
the final results of these administrative reviews.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    Because the antidumping duty orders on ball bearings from Japan and 
the United Kingdom have been revoked,\13\ the Department will not issue 
cash deposit instructions at the conclusion of these administrative 
reviews.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ See Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof From Japan and the 
United Kingdom: Final Results of Sunset Reviews and Revocation of 
Antidumping Duty Orders, 79 FR 16771 (March 26, 2014).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) 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.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: September 17, 2014.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
