(Aisin) and other parties appealed AFBs 17 to the CIT and on September 3, 2009, the CIT granted the Department’s request for a voluntary remand to examine its calculation of constructed export price (CEP) for certain U.S. sales made by Aisin. After reexamining Aisin’s CEP calculation, the Department determined it appropriate to recalculate Aisin’s dumping margin.3 On May 5, 2011, the CIT affirmed, in part, the Department’s first remand, which resulted in a weighted-average dumping margin of 1.13 percent for Aisin.4 The Court remanded issues regarding other respondent companies, relating to the Department’s use of zeroing and model match methodology.

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.

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\
