SUMMARY: On July 7, 2015, the Department of Commerce (the AGENCY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:14 Jan 11, 2016 Jkt 238001 Department) published the preliminary results of the 27th administrative review of the antidumping duty order on tapered roller bearings and parts thereof, finished and unfinished (TRBs), from the People’s Republic of China (PRC).1 The period of review (POR) is June 1, 2013, through May 31, 2014. Based on our analysis of the comments received, we made certain changes in the margin calculations. Therefore, the final results differ from the preliminary results. The final weighted-average dumping margins for the reviewed firms are listed below in the section entitled ‘‘Final Results of the Review.’’ DATES: Effective Date: January 12, 2016. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Blaine Wiltse, AD/CVD Operations, Office II, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–6345. Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by the Order 3 includes tapered roller bearings and parts thereof, finished and unfinished, from the PRC; flange, take up cartridge, and hanger units incorporating tapered roller bearings; and tapered roller housings (except pillow blocks) incorporating tapered rollers, with or without spindles, whether or not for automotive use. These products are currently classifiable under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) item numbers 8482.20.00, 8482.91.00.50, 8482.99.15, 8482.99.45, 8483.20.40, 8483.20.80, 8483.30.80, 8483.90.20, 8483.90.30, 8483.90.80, 8708.70.6060, 8708.99.2300, 8708.99.4850, 8708.99.6890, 8708.99.8115, and 8708.99.8180. Although the HTSUS item numbers are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the Order is dispositive.4 Background These final results of administrative review cover four exporters of the subject merchandise, Changshan Peer Bearing Co., Ltd. and Peer Bearing Company (collectively, CPZ/SKF), Ningbo Xinglun Bearings Import & Export Co., Ltd. (Xinglun), Xinchang Kaiyuan Automotive Bearing Co., Ltd. (Kaiyuan), and Yantai CMC Bearing Co. Ltd. (Yantai CMC). The Department selected as CPZ/SKF and Yantai CMC as mandatory respondents for individual examination; however, we subsequently found that Yantai CMC does not qualify for a separate rate.2 Additionally, in the Preliminary Results, we determined, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.401(f) to treat affiliated producers, CPZ/SKF and Shanghai General Bearing Co., Ltd. (SGBC) as a single entity (collectively, CPZ/SGBC). On July 7, 2015, the Department published the Preliminary Results. In August 2015, we received case and rebuttal briefs from the Timken Company (the petitioner) and CPZ/SKF. We also received a case brief from Yantai CMC. In September 2015, the Department held a public hearing at the request of the petitioner. The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Separate Rates In the Preliminary Results, we found that evidence provided by CPZ/SKF, Kaiyuan, and Xinglun supported finding an absence of both de jure and de facto government control, and, therefore, we preliminarily granted a separate rate to each of these companies.5 We received no information since the issuance of the Preliminary Results that provides a basis for reconsidering these determinations. Therefore, for the final results, we continue to find that CPZ/SKF, Kaiyuan, and Xinglun are eligible for separate rates. With respect to Yantai CMC, however, we determined in the Preliminary Results that this company failed to demonstrate an absence of de facto government control, and, thus, the Department did not grant Yantai CMC a separate rate. For these final results, we continue to find, based on record evidence, that Yantai CMC failed to demonstrate an absence of de facto government control. Accordingly, we 1 See Tapered Roller Bearings and Parts Thereof, Finished and Unfinished, From the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2013– 2014, 80 FR 38665 (July 7, 2015) (Preliminary Results), and accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum. 2 See Preliminary Results, 80 FR at 38666.

E:\FR\FM\12JAN1.SGM 12JAN1 1397 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 7 / Tuesday, January 12, 2016 / Notices are not granting Yantai CMC a separate rate. For further discussion of this issue, see Comments 6 through 9 of the accompanying Issues and Decision Memo. Therefore, we are assigning CPZ/SKF’s calculated margin as the rate assigned to non-examined entities which demonstrated their eligibility for a separate rate.7 Weighted-Average Dumping Margin for the Non-Examined, Separate-Rate Companies For the exporters subject to a review that are determined to be eligible for a separate rate, but are not selected as individually examined respondents, the Department generally weight averages the rates calculated for the individuallyexamined respondents, excluding any rates that are zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available.6 In this administrative review, the only individually-examined company for which we calculated a margin is CPZ/ SKF, which is receiving a separate rate calculated from its own sales and production data. To determine a rate for the unselected separate rate companies, we find it appropriate to use the margin calculated for CPZ/SKF, which was also found to be separate from the PRC-wide entity with respect to its export activities, and which has been assigned a rate that is not zero or de minimis nor based entirely on facts available. Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties to this administrative review are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memo. A list of the issues which parties raised and to which we respond in the Issues and Decision Memo is attached to this notice as an Appendix. The Issues and Decision Memo is a public document and is on file electronically via Enforcement and Compliance’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS). ACCESS is available to registered users at https:// access.trade.gov, and it is available to all parties in the Central Records Unit, room B8024 of the main Department of Commerce building.

The signed Issues and Decision Memo and the electronic version of the Issues and Decision Memo are identical in content. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on our analysis of the comments received, we made changes in the margin calculation for CPZ/SKF. These changes are discussed in the relevant sections of the Issues and Decision Memo. Period of Review The POR is June 1, 2013, through May 31, 2014. Final Results of the Review Because Yantai CMC did not demonstrate that it is entitled to a separate rate, the Department finds Yantai CMC to be part of the PRC-wide entity. No party requested a review of the PRC-wide entity. Therefore, we did not conduct a review of the PRC-wide entity and the entity’s rate is not subject to change.8 The rate previously established for the PRC-wide entity is 92.84 percent. Additionally, we are assigning the following weighted-average dumping margins to the firms listed below for the period June 1, 2013, through May 31, 2014: Weighted-average dumping margin (percent) Exporters Changshan Peer Bearing Co., Ltd./Shanghai General Bearing Co., Ltd. ....................................................................................

Xinchang Kaiyuan Automotive Bearing Co., Ltd.* ......................................................................................................................... 0.91 0.91 0.91 * This company demonstrated eligibility for a separate rate in this administrative review. Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), the Department has determined, and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise, where applicable, in accordance with the final results of this review. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final results of review. Where an importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem or per-unit rate is greater than de minimis, the Department will instruct CBP to collect the appropriate duties at the time of liquidation.9 For entries of subject merchandise exported by CPZ/SKF we calculated an ad valorem rate by dividing the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales by the total entered values associated with those sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review. For Yantai CMC, because the Department determined that this company did not qualify for a separate rate, we will instruct CBP to assess dumping duties on the company’s entries of subject merchandise at the rate of 92.84 percent. For Kaiyuan and Xinglun, the companies not selected for individual examination, the ad valorem assessment rate will be equal to the weighted- 6 See, e.g., Wooden Bedroom Furniture From the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, Preliminary Results of New Shipper Review and Partial Rescission of Administrative Review, 73 FR 8273, 8279 (February 13, 2008), unchanged in Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and New Shipper Review, 73 FR 49162 (August 20, 2008). 7 We note that this represents a change from the Preliminary Results, where we preliminarily assigned separate rate companies the separate rate from the immediately preceding administrative review. This is a function of the fact that CPZ/SKF’s rate has changed from zero to above de minimis in these final results. As a result, using section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act as guidance, we revised our methodology for these final results. 8 See Antidumping Proceedings: Announcement of Change in Department Practice for Respondent Selection in Antidumping Duty Proceedings and Conditional Review of the Nonmarket Economy Entity in NME Antidumping Duty Proceedings, 78 FR 65963, 65970 (November 4, 2013). 9 See Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101, 8103 (February 14, 2012).

Tapered Roller Bearings and Parts Thereof, Finished and 
Unfinished, from the People's Republic of China: Final Results of the 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2013-2014

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: On July 7, 2015, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published the preliminary results of the 27th administrative review of 
the antidumping duty order on tapered roller bearings and parts 
thereof, finished and unfinished (TRBs), from the People's Republic of 
China (PRC).\1\ The period of review (POR) is June 1, 2013, through May 
31, 2014. Based on our analysis of the comments received, we made 
certain changes in the margin calculations. Therefore, the final 
results differ from the preliminary results. The final weighted-average 
dumping margins for the reviewed firms are listed below in the section 
entitled ``Final Results of the Review.''

Background

    These final results of administrative review cover four exporters 
of the subject merchandise, Changshan Peer Bearing Co., Ltd. and Peer 
Bearing Company (collectively, CPZ/SKF), Ningbo Xinglun Bearings Import 
& Export Co., Ltd. (Xinglun), Xinchang Kaiyuan Automotive Bearing Co., 
Ltd. (Kaiyuan), and Yantai CMC Bearing Co. Ltd. (Yantai CMC). The 
Department selected as CPZ/SKF and Yantai CMC as mandatory respondents 
for individual examination; however, we subsequently found that Yantai 
CMC does not qualify for a separate rate.\2\ Additionally, in the 
Preliminary Results, we determined, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.401(f) to treat affiliated producers, CPZ/SKF and Shanghai General 
Bearing Co., Ltd. (SGBC) as a single entity (collectively, CPZ/SGBC).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See Preliminary Results, 80 FR at 38666.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On July 7, 2015, the Department published the Preliminary Results. 
In August 2015, we received case and rebuttal briefs from the Timken 
Company (the petitioner) and CPZ/SKF. We also received a case brief 
from Yantai CMC. In September 2015, the Department held a public 
hearing at the request of the petitioner.
    The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 751 
of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by the Order \3\ includes tapered roller 
bearings and parts thereof, finished and unfinished, from the PRC; 
flange, take up cartridge, and hanger units incorporating tapered 
roller bearings; and tapered roller housings (except pillow blocks) 
incorporating tapered rollers, with or without spindles, whether or not 
for automotive use. These products are currently classifiable under 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) item numbers 
8482.20.00, 8482.91.00.50, 8482.99.15, 8482.99.45, 8483.20.40, 
8483.20.80, 8483.30.80, 8483.90.20, 8483.90.30, 8483.90.80, 
8708.70.6060, 8708.99.2300, 8708.99.4850, 8708.99.6890, 8708.99.8115, 
and 8708.99.8180. Although the HTSUS item numbers are provided for 
convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope 
of the Order is dispositive.\4\

Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, to Paul Piquado, 
Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations, dated concurrently with, and adopted by, this notice 
(Issues and Decision Memo).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Separate Rates

    In the Preliminary Results, we found that evidence provided by CPZ/
SKF, Kaiyuan, and Xinglun supported finding an absence of both de jure 
and de facto government control, and, therefore, we preliminarily 
granted a separate rate to each of these companies.\5\ We received no 
information since the issuance of the Preliminary Results that provides 
a basis for reconsidering these determinations. Therefore, for the 
final results, we continue to find that CPZ/SKF, Kaiyuan, and Xinglun 
are eligible for separate rates.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See Preliminary Results, 80 FR at 38665, and accompanying 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum at 4-7.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    With respect to Yantai CMC, however, we determined in the 
Preliminary Results that this company failed to demonstrate an absence 
of de facto government control, and, thus, the Department did not grant 
Yantai CMC a separate rate. For these final results, we continue to 
find, based on record evidence, that Yantai CMC failed to demonstrate 
an absence of de facto government control. Accordingly, we

[[Page 1397]]

are not granting Yantai CMC a separate rate. For further discussion of 
this issue, see Comments 6 through 9 of the accompanying Issues and 
Decision Memo.

Weighted-Average Dumping Margin for the Non-Examined, Separate-Rate 
Companies

    For the exporters subject to a review that are determined to be 
eligible for a separate rate, but are not selected as individually 
examined respondents, the Department generally weight averages the 
rates calculated for the individually-examined respondents, excluding 
any rates that are zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts 
available.\6\ In this administrative review, the only individually-
examined company for which we calculated a margin is CPZ/SKF, which is 
receiving a separate rate calculated from its own sales and production 
data. To determine a rate for the unselected separate rate companies, 
we find it appropriate to use the margin calculated for CPZ/SKF, which 
was also found to be separate from the PRC-wide entity with respect to 
its export activities, and which has been assigned a rate that is not 
zero or de minimis nor based entirely on facts available. Therefore, we 
are assigning CPZ/SKF's calculated margin as the rate assigned to non-
examined entities which demonstrated their eligibility for a separate 
rate.\7\

People's Republic of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review and New Shipper Review, 73 FR 49162 (August 
20, 2008).
    \7\ We note that this represents a change from the Preliminary 
Results, where we preliminarily assigned separate rate companies the 
separate rate from the immediately preceding administrative review. 
This is a function of the fact that CPZ/SKF's rate has changed from 
zero to above de minimis in these final results. As a result, using 
section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act as guidance, we revised our 
methodology for these final results.

    The POR is June 1, 2013, through May 31, 2014.

Final Results of the Review

    Because Yantai CMC did not demonstrate that it is entitled to a 
separate rate, the Department finds Yantai CMC to be part of the PRC-
wide entity. No party requested a review of the PRC-wide entity. 
Therefore, we did not conduct a review of the PRC-wide entity and the 
entity's rate is not subject to change.\8\ The rate previously 
established for the PRC-wide entity is 92.84 percent.

Disclosure

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed within five days 
of the date of publication of this notice to parties in this proceeding 
in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, and 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1), the Department has determined, and Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries of subject merchandise, where applicable, in accordance with 
the final results of this review. The Department intends to issue 
assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of 
these final results of review.
    Where an importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem or per-unit 
rate is greater than de minimis, the Department will instruct CBP to 
collect the appropriate duties at the time of liquidation.\9\

Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101, 8103 (February 14, 
2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For entries of subject merchandise exported by CPZ/SKF we 
calculated an ad valorem rate by dividing the total amount of dumping 
calculated for the importer's examined sales by the total entered 
values associated with those sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1). We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries covered by this review.
    For Yantai CMC, because the Department determined that this company 
did not qualify for a separate rate, we will instruct CBP to assess 
dumping duties on the company's entries of subject merchandise at the 
rate of 92.84 percent.
    For Kaiyuan and Xinglun, the companies not selected for individual 
examination, the ad valorem assessment rate will be equal to the 
weighted-

average dumping margin assigned above in the final results of review.
    For entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales database 
submitted by an exporter individually examined during this review, the 
Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide 
rate. Additionally, if the Department determines that an exporter under 
review had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended 
entries that entered under that exporter's case number will be 
liquidated at the PRC-wide rate (i.e., 92.84 percent).\10\

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the exporters 
listed above, the cash deposit rate will be equal to the weighted-
average dumping margin established in the final results of this review 
(except, if the rate is de minimis, then a cash deposit rate of zero 
will be established for that company); (2) for previously investigated 
or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above that currently 
have separate a rate, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the 
exporter-specific rate published for the most recently completed 
segment of this proceeding where the exporter received that separate 
rate; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have not 
been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate 
will be the rate for the PRC-wide entity, 92.84 percent; and (4) for 
all non-PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not received 
their own separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate 
applicable to the PRC exporter that supplied that non-PRC exporter.
    These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect 
until further notice.

Notifications to Importers

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate regarding 
the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the 
relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notifications to Interested Parties

    This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written 
notification of return or destruction of APO materials, or conversion 
to judicial protective order, is hereby requested. Failure to comply 
with the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable 
violation.
    We are issuing and publishing these results of review in accordance 
with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: January 4, 2016.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
