Background

At the request of interested parties, the Department of Commerce initiated administrative reviews of the antidumping duty orders on antifriction bearings and parts thereof from France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Singapore, and the United Kingdom for the period May 1, 2002, through April 30, 2003. See, Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 68 FR 39055, (July 1, 2003), and Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, Requests for Revocation in Part and Deferral of Administrative Reviews, 68 FR 44524, (July 29, 2003). On February 9, 2004, the Department published its preliminary findings. See Antifriction Bearings and Parts Thereof from France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Singapore, and the United Kingdom: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews, Partial Rescission of Administrative Reviews, Notice of Intent to Rescind Administrative Reviews, and Notice of Intent to Revoke Order in Part, 69 FR 5950, (February 9, 2004). The final results of reviews were originally scheduled for June 8, 2004. On May 3, 2004, the Department published a notice extending the date for issuing the final results of these reviews until August 9, 2004. See Antifriction Bearings and Parts Thereof From France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Singapore, and the United Kingdom: Extension of Time Limit for Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews, 69 FR 24121, (May 3, 2004). Extension of Time Limit for Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews

Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department to issue the final results of an antidumping duty administrative review within 120 days of the date on which the preliminary results are published. The administering authority may extend the period of time for making a final determination without extending the time for making a preliminary determination, if such determination is made no later than 300 days after the date on which the preliminary determination is published. Completion of the final results of these reviews within the previously-extended period is not practicable because of the large number of respondents and the complexity of the issues raised in these reviews. Therefore, we are extending the time period for issuing the final results of these reviews by 30 days, until September 8, 2004.

This notice is published in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).
