The period of review is May 1, 2001, through April 30, 2002.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On June 16, 2003, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published in the Federal Register the final results of the administrative reviews of the antidumping duty orders on ball bearings and parts thereof (ball bearings) from France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom (68 FR 35623) (Final Results).

We received timely allegations of ministerial errors from Timken U.S. Corporation (Timken) and the SKF Group Companies in the United States and France (SKF France). In its comments dated June 18, 2003, Timken alleged that the Department erred when it made a correction to Nippon Pillow Block Sales Company's (NPBS's) preliminary results margin calculation. Specifically, Timken asserts that the Department erred when it deleted indirect advertising expenses from NPBS's U.S. indirect selling expense total. We agree with the alleged error and, therefore, we have amended the final results to correct the problem.

In its comments dated June 16, 2003, SKF France alleged that the Department made a clerical error in assigning the level of trade (LOT) for U.S. sales. We agree with SKF France that we incorrectly assigned the LOT for U.S. sales. We corrected this error.

Amended Final Results of Review

As a result of the correction of clerical errors, the following weighted-average margins exist for exports of ball bearings by NPBS and SKF France for the period May 1, 2001, through April 30, 2002:

CompanyMargin (percent)
Nippon Pillow Block Sales Company (NPBS)4.82
SKF France6.70

The Department will determine, and the U.S. Bureau of Customs and Border Protection (BCBP), formerly known as the U.S. Customs Service, shall assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. We will issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to BCBP within 15 days of publication of these amended final results of review.

We will also direct BCBP to collect cash deposits of estimated antidumping duties on all appropriate entries in accordance with the procedures discussed in the Final Results and at the rates as amended by this notice. The amended deposit requirements are effective for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date these amended final results are published in the Federal Register.

We are issuing and publishing these determinations and notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e).
