On May 2, 2011, we published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on ball bearings from Japan for the period May 1, 2010, through April 30, 2011.
We received timely filed requests for review of 31 producers or exporters from various interested parties. On June 28, 2011, in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act) and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), we initiated an administrative review of the order on ball bearings from Japan with respect to the following firms: 
Asahi Seiko Co., Ltd.
Aisin Seiki Co. Ltd.
Bosch Packaging Technology K.K.
Bosch Rexroth Corporation
Caterpillar Japan Ltd.
Caterpillar Overseas S.A.R.L.
Caterpillar Group Services S.A.
Caterpillar Brazil Ltd.
Caterpillar Africa Pty. Ltd.
Caterpillar of Australia Pty. Ltd.
Caterpillar Americas Mexico, S. de R.L. de C.V.
Caterpillar Logistics Services China Ltd.
Caterpillar Mexico, S.A. de C.V.
Hino Motors Ltd.
Mazda Motor Corporation
Perkins Engines Company Limited
Sapporo Precision, Inc., and Tokyo Precision, Inc.
Volkswagen Zubehor GmbH
Yamazaki Mazak Trading Corporation
On July 15, 2011, pursuant to a decision of the Court of International Trade (CIT) that affirmed the International Trade Commission's (ITC's) negative injury determinations on remand in the second sunset review of the antidumping duty order on ball bearings from Japan, we revoked the order on ball bearings and parts thereof from Japan and discontinued all ongoing administrative reviews, pending a final and conclusive court decision.
On May 16, 2013, the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (Federal Circuit) reversed the CIT's decision and ordered the CIT to reinstate the ITC's affirmative material injury determinations.
Subsequently, on November 18, 2013, the CIT issued final judgment reinstating the ITC's affirmative injury determinations.
Thus, on December 16, 2013 we reinstated the antidumping duty order and resumed all previously discontinued administrative reviews.
Rescission of Review in Part
Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an administrative review, “in whole or in part, if a party that requested a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of notice of initiation of the requested review.” In our Reinstatement Notice, we informed parties that the deadline to withdraw requests for review was 90 days from the publication of that notice.
We received timely withdrawals of requests for review from all firms except Bosch Packaging Technology K.K., Bosch Rexroth Corporation, and Hagglunds Ltd. (collectively, the Robert Bosch Companies).
This rescission in part is in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).
Accordingly, the Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection 15 days after publication of this notice.
This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) 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 Department's presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties.
This notice also 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 the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.
This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
