In making a successor-in-interest determination, the Department examines several factors, including, but not limited to, changes in the following: (1) Management; (2) production facilities; (3) supplier relationships; and (4) customer base.5 While no single factor or combination of factors will necessarily provide a dispositive indication of a successor-ininterest relationship, generally, the Department will consider the new company to be the successor to the previous company if the new company’s resulting operation is not materially dissimilar to that of its predecessor.6 Thus, if the record evidence demonstrates that, with respect to the production and sale of the subject merchandise, the new company operates as the same business entity as the predecessor company, the Department will generally accord the new company the same AD treatment as its predecessor.7 SGBC was revoked from the order in 1997 and became part of the SKF Group in 2012. In conducting a successor-ininterest analysis, while we generally consider information from immediately before and after the formation of a new entity, the Department considers all information on the record relevant to the determination.8 In the instant case, we compared SGBC/SKF to the entity 5 See, e.g., Pressure Sensitive Plastic Tape from Italy: Preliminary of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review, 75 FR 8925 (February 26, 2010), unchanged in Pressure Sensitive Plastic Tape from Italy: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review, 75 FR 27706 (May 18, 2010); and Brake Rotors from the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Changed Circumstances Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 70 FR 69941 (November 18, 2005) (Brake Rotors), citing Brass Sheet and Strip from Canada: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 57 FR 20460 (May 13, 1992). 6 See, e.g., Brake Rotors. 7 Id.; see also, e.g., Notice of Initiation and Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review: Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India, 77 FR 64953 (October 24, 2012), unchanged in Final Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review: Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India, 77 FR 73619 (December 11, 2012). 8 See Certain Pasta from Italy: Notice of Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review, 79 FR 28481, 28482 (May 16, 2014), unchanged in Certain Pasta from Italy: Notice of Final Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review, 79 FR 56339 (September 19, 2014). VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:00 Nov 20, 2014 Jkt 235001 that was revoked from the order, and we considered the changes to that entity since revocation. Preliminary Results We preliminarily find SGBC/SKF to be the successor-in-interest to SGBC because the information on the record indicates that SGBC/SKF continues to operate as essentially the same entity that was revoked from the order. Although there were changes in SGBC’s production process and board membership after revocation, these changes were made over a number of years and do not appear to be linked to changes in ownership structure. Rather, they are changes generally in the normal course of business that would occur over such a long period (i.e., approximately two decades). Thus, after considering the facts on the record as a whole, we do not find that SGBC/SKF’s operations (based on an examination of its management, production facilities, supplier relationships, and customer base), changed so significantly such that we would find that that it is a different entity from SGBC.

investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters which are not under 
review in this segment of the proceeding but which have separate rates, 
the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate 
published for the most recent period; (3) for all PRC exporters of 
subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a 
separate rate, including Zhengzhou Shangdao, the cash deposit rate will 
be the PRC-wide rate of 128.59 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. 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)(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 Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213.

    Dated: November 7, 2014.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
