Rescission of Reviews

In accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d) the Department will rescind an administrative review “if a party that requested the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of notice of initiation of the requested review.” We received all of the above withdrawal letters, except one, within the 90-day time limit. Although Mori Seiki Co., Ltd., withdrew its request 91 days after initiation of the review, we have honored this request because we have not expended significant resources with regard to Mori Seiki Co., Ltd., and no party has objected to Mori Seiki Co., Ltd.,'s late withdrawal of its request. Because the Department received no other requests for review of these firms, the Department is rescinding the reviews in part with respect to ball bearings and parts thereof from France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom by these firms. The above rescissions are pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). The Department will issue appropriate assessment instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection 15 days after publication of this notice.

Notification to Importers

This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under section 351.402(f) of the Department's regulations 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 Secretary's assumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

This notice serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). 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 sanctionable violation.

We are issuing and publishing these rescissions in accordance with section 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
