SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Background On January 27, 2015, the Department published its final results in the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on ball bearings and parts thereof from the United Kingdom 1 On January 27, 2015, NSK Europe Ltd. and NSK Bearings Europe Ltd. (collectively, NSK), submitted a ministerial error allegation.2 On February 2, 2015, The Timken Company submitted comments.3 Based on the analysis of this allegation, we made a change to the calculation of the weighted-average dumping margin for NSK and for certain of the nonindividually examined respondents. Scope of the Order The products covered by the order are ball bearings and parts thereof. These products include all antifriction bearings that employ balls as the rolling element. Imports of these products are classified under the following categories: Antifriction balls, ball bearings with integral shafts, ball bearings (including radial ball bearings) and parts thereof, and housed or mounted ball bearing units and parts thereof. Imports of these products are classified under the following Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings: 3926.90.45, 4016.93.10, 4016.93.50, 6909.19.50.10, 8414.90.41.75, 8431.20.00, 8431.39.00.10, 8482.10.10, 1 See Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof From Japan and the United Kingdom: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews; 2010– 2011, 80 FR 4248 (January 27, 2015) (Final Results). 2 See letter from NSK, ‘‘Ball Bearings and Parts from the United Kingdom: Ministerial Error Allegation’’ (January 27, 2015). 3 See Letter From Timken, ‘‘Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof From the United Kingdom; The Timken Company’s Reply to NSK’s Ministerial Error Allegation’’ (February 2, 2015).

Although the HTSUS item numbers above are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the order remains dispositive. The size or precision grade of a bearing does not influence whether the bearing is covered by the order. The order covers all the subject bearings and parts thereof (inner race, outer race, cage, rollers, balls, seals, shields, etc.) outlined above with certain limitations. With regard to finished parts, all such parts are included in the scope of the order. For unfinished parts, such parts are included if they have been heattreated or if heat treatment is not required to be performed on the part. Thus, the only unfinished parts that are not covered by the order are those that will be subject to heat treatment after importation. The ultimate application of a bearing also does not influence whether the bearing is covered by the order. Bearings designed for highly specialized applications are not excluded. Any of the subject bearings, regardless of whether they may ultimately be utilized in aircraft, automobiles, or other equipment, are within the scope of the order. Ministerial Error Section 751(h) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.224(f) define a ‘‘ministerial error’’ as an error ‘‘in addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical error resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any other similar type of unintentional error which the Secretary considers ministerial.’’ On January 27, 2015, NSK submitted a ministerial error allegation. After analyzing NSK’s allegation, we agree with NSK that we made a ministerial error within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.224(f) by using an incorrect database for NSK’s costs, instead of a E:\FR\FM\24FEN1.SGM 24FEN1
