Timken Notice

    In its decision in Timken, 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 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\
