SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Lhorne on DSK7TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Background On September 1, 2010, the Department published AFBs 20.2 NTN Corporation (NTN) and other parties appealed AFBs 20 to the CIT. On February 3, 2015, the CIT remanded AFBs 20 and ordered the Department to revise its calculation of NTN’s U.S. credit expenses to use the correct variable and recalculate the weightedaverage dumping margin for NTN.3 On May 4, 2015, the Department filed its final results of redetermination pursuant to remand in accordance with the CIT’s order,4 but on the same day the Department sought leave to file an amended remand redetermination, 1 See Amended Final Results of Remand Redetermination pursuant to NTN Bearing Corporation of America v.

The CIT’s July 14, 2015, judgment affirming the Amended Final Remand constitutes a final decision of the CIT that is not in harmony with AFBs 20. This notice is published in fulfillment of the publication requirements of Timken. Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation 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 CIT’s ruling is not appealed, or if appealed and upheld by the CAFC, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on appropriate entries of the subject merchandise using the rate calculated by the Department in AFBs 20. 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.10 5 See NTN Bearing Corporation of America v.
