Based on our analysis of the comments received, we made changes to the margin calculations. Therefore, the final results differ from the preliminary results. Further, we continue to determine that SGBC/SKF sold TRBs at less than normal value (NV), and, as a result, we are reinstating SGBC/SKF in the antidumping order on TRBs from the PRC.

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the ``Act''), and 19 CFR 351.212(b), the Department has 
determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') shall 
assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject 
merchandise in accordance with the final results of this review. The 
Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions 
directly to CBP

[[Page 4853]]

15 days after publication of the final results of this administrative 
review.
    Where the respondent reported reliable entered values, we 
calculated importer (or customer)-specific ad valorem rates by 
aggregating the dumping margins calculated for all U.S. sales to each 
importer (or customer) and dividing this amount by the total entered 
value of the sales to each importer (or customer).\8\ Where the 
Department calculated a weighted-average dumping margin by dividing the 
total amount of dumping for reviewed sales to that party by the total 
sales quantity associated with those transactions, the Department will 
direct CBP to assess importer-specific assessment rates based on the 
resulting per-unit rates.\9\ Where an importer- (or customer-) specific 
ad valorem or per-unit rate is greater than de minimis (i.e., 0.50 
percent), the Department will instruct CBP to collect the appropriate 
duties at the time of liquidation.\10\ Where an importer- (or customer-
) specific ad valorem or per-unit rate is zero or de minimis, the 
Department will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without 
regard to antidumping duties.\11\

    Pursuant to the Department's assessment practice, for entries that 
were not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by companies 
individually examined during this review, the Department will instruct 
CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide entity rate. 
Additionally, if the Department determines that an exporter had no 
shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that 
entered under that exporter's case number (i.e., at that exporter's 
rate) will be liquidated at the PRC-wide entity rate.\12\

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for 
shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the exporters 
listed above, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established in the 
final results of this review (except, if the rate is zero or de 
minimis, a zero cash deposit rate will be required for that company); 
(2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters 
not listed above that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will 
continue to be the existing producer/exporter-specific rate published 
for the most recent period; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject 
merchandise that have not been found to be eligible for a separate 
rate, the cash deposit rate will be the PRC-wide rate of 285.63 
percent; \13\ and (4) for all non-PRC exporters of subject merchandise 
which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be 
the rate applicable to the PRC exporter(s) that supplied that non-PRC 
exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in 
effect until further notice.

Disclosure

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

Notification to Importers

    This notice 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 POR. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in the Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties has occurred and that subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Order Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice also serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (``APO'') of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), 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 which is subject to sanction.
    We are issuing and publishing these final results of administrative 
review in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, 
and 19 CFR 351.213(h).
