SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On December 22, 2015, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published the preliminary rescission of the new shipper review of the 
antidumping duty (AD) order on tapered roller bearings and parts 
thereof, finished and unfinished (TRBs), from the People's Republic of 
China (PRC) for Zhejiang Changxing CTL Auto Parts Manufacturing Co., 
Ltd. (Changxing).\1\ We invited parties to comments on our Preliminary 
Rescission Notice; however, no interested party submitted comments. 
Therefore, we made no changes to our analysis for purposes of this 
final rescission, and we are rescinding the new shipper review of the 
AD order on TRBs from the PRC with respect to Changxing.

Unfinished, From the People's Republic of China: Preliminary 
Rescission of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review; 2014-2015, 80 FR 
79561 (December 22, 2015) (Preliminary Rescission Notice).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    Imports covered by the order are shipments of 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,

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.

Rescission of Review

    As discussed in the Preliminary Rescission Notice, Changxing failed 
to respond to the Department's request for additional information 
regarding possible entries of subject merchandise that predated the 
applicable period of review (POR).\2\ In the absence of any comments on 
this issue, we continue to find on the basis of adverse facts 
available, pursuant to section 776(a) and (b) of the Tariff Act of 
1930, as amended (the Act), that Changxing had additional entries of 
subject merchandise prior to the POR (June 1, 2014, through May 31, 
2015) that were not reported to the Department at the time of 
Changxing's request for a new shipper review. Based on the foregoing, 
we find that Changxing does not meet the minimum requirements for a new 
shipper review under 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iv)(C) in that Changxing's 
request did not contain documentation establishing the date of its 
first sale to an unaffiliated customer in the United States. Because we 
find that Changxing's request for a new shipper review did not satisfy 
the regulatory requirements for initiation of a new shipper review, we 
are rescinding the new shipper review of the AD order on TRBs from the 
PRC with respect to Changxing.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Because we are rescinding the new shipper review of Changxing, we 
are not making a determination as to whether Changxing qualifies for a 
separate rate. Therefore, Changxing remains part of the PRC entity and 
any entries covered by this new shipper review will be assessed at the 
PRC-wide rate.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    Effective upon publication of the final rescission of the new 
shipper review of Changxing, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs 
and Border Protection to discontinue the option of posting a bond or 
security in lieu of a cash deposit for entries of subject merchandise 
from Changxing.\3\ Because we did not calculate a dumping margin for 
Changxing or grant Changxing a separate rate in this new shipper 
review, we find that Changxing continues to be part of the PRC-wide 
entity. The cash deposit rate for the PRC-wide entity is 92.84 percent. 
These cash deposit requirements shall remain in effect until further 
notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act ; see also 19 CFR 
351.214(e).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) 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 Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Order

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), this notice also serves as 
a final reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order 
(APO) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of 
proprietary information disclosed under the APO, which continues to 
govern business proprietary information in this segment of the 
proceeding. Timely written notification of the return or destruction of 
APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby 
requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO 
is a violation subject to sanction.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This new shipper review and notice are in accordance with sections 
751(a)(2)(B) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(f)(3).
