Summary

On February 11, 1997, the Department published in the Federal Register its Final Results and Partial Termination of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review on Tapered Roller Bearings and Parts Thereof, Finished and Unfinished, from the People's Republic of China, 62 FR 6173 (Final Results). This notice covered various exporters for the period June 1, 1993, through May 31, 1994. As a result of litigation, the Court of International Trade (CIT) remanded the results of the review to the Department on October 25, 2001. See Peer Bearing Company v. United States, Court No. 97-03-00419, Slip Op. 01-125 (CIT October 25, 2001). The CIT ordered the Department to make the following changes to its original calculations: (1) Correct a clerical error resulting from the application of best information available to certain models for which factor-of-production data were available; (2) redetermine direct labor costs on the basis of SKF India's data on labor (supplemented by facts otherwise available only to the extent necessitated by the insufficiency, if any, of SKF India's data currently on the record); and (3) determine marine insurance in a manner related to the value and risk of transporting tapered roller bearings. The Department submitted its final results of redetermination on remand to the CIT on March 12, 2002; the CIT affirmed the Department's final remand results and dismissed the case. See Peer Bearing Company v. United States, Court No. 97-03-00419, Slip Op. 02-53 (CIT June 5, 2002). In another decision, Transcom, Inc., et al. v. United States, Court No. 01-1138, 2002 U.S. App. LEXIS 12723 (June 27, 2002), the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit issued an opinion upholding the Department's determination in this administrative review.

As there is now a final and conclusive court decision in this action, we are amending our final results of review and we will instruct the Customs Service to liquidate entries subject to this review.
