Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 14 / Thursday, January 22, 2015 / Notices remand in its entirety on December 24, 2014, and entered judgment. 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 December 24, 2014, judgment affirming the Final Second Remand constitutes a final decision of that court that is not in harmony with AFBs 17. This notice is published in fulfillment of the publication requirements of Timken. Amended Final Results Because there is now a final court decision, the Department is amending AFBs 17 with respect to Aisin’s weighted-average dumping margin as redetermined in the Final First Remand. The revised weighted-average dumping margin for the period May 1, 2005, to April 30, 2006, for Aisin is 1.13%. Accordingly, the Department will continue the suspension of liquidation of the subject merchandise pending the expiration of the period of appeal or, if appealed, pending a final and conclusive court decision. In the event the Court’s ruling is not appealed, or if appealed and upheld by the Federal Circuit, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on entries of the subject merchandise exported by Aisin using the revised assessment rate calculated by the Department in the Final First Remand and listed above. Cash Deposit Requirements Because we revoked the antidumping duty order on ball bearings and parts thereof from Japan effective September 15, 2011, no cash deposits for estimated antidumping duties on future entries of subject merchandise will be required.6 tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Notification to Interested Parties This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 516A(e)(1), 751(a)(1), and 777(i)(1) of the Act. 6 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).

Postponement of Preliminary Determination

    Section 703(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department to issue the preliminary determination 
in a countervailing duty investigation within 65 days after the date on 
which the Department initiated the investigation. However, section 
703(c)(1)(B) of the Act permits the Department to postpone making the 
preliminary determination until no later than 130 days after the date 
on which it initiated the investigation if, among other reasons, the 
petitioner makes a timely request for a postponement, or the Department 
concludes that the parties concerned are cooperating and determines 
that the investigation is extraordinarily complicated. On January 9, 
2015, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.205(b)(2), Cornerstone Chemical 
Company (``Petitioner'') made timely requests to postpone the 
preliminary countervailing duty determinations.\2\ Therefore, in 
accordance with section 703(c)(1)(A) of the Act, the Department is 
hereby postponing the preliminary countervailing duty determinations by 
65 days to no later than April 11, 2015. However, because April 11, 
2015, falls on a Saturday, the preliminary determinations are now due 
no later than April 13, 2015.\3\
