On April 21, 2011, the Department published, and invited interested parties to comment on, the Preliminary Results.
The period of reviews is May 1, 2009, through April 30, 2010. We received case and rebuttal briefs from various parties to these reviews. On July 15, 2011, the Department discontinued these reviews.
The Department resumed these reviews effective November 29, 2013, pursuant to court judgment.
On March 25, 2014, we issued a post-preliminary analysis in which we (1) addressed the methodology stated in the Final Modification for Reviews 
as it pertained to these administrative reviews and (2) stated our intent to rescind the review in part with respect to the administrative review of ball bearings and parts thereof from Japan.
We invited comments from interested parties for the Post-Preliminary Analysis.
We received additional case and rebuttal briefs from interested parties commenting on the Post-Preliminary Analysis. The Department conducted these administrative reviews in accordance with section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).

Analysis of the Comments Received
All issues raised in the case briefs by parties to these administrative reviews are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum. A list of the issues which parties have raised and to which we have responded is in the Issues and Decision Memorandum and attached to this notice as an Appendix. The Issues and Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically via Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (IA ACCESS). IA ACCESS is available to registered users at http://iaaccess.trade.gov and it is available to all parties in the Central Records Unit (CRU), room 7046 of the main Department of Commerce building. In addition, a complete version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly on the internet at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. The signed Issues and Decision Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content.
Rescission of Review in Part
In the Post-Preliminary Analysis, we stated our intent to rescind the administrative review of ball bearings and parts thereof from Japan in part, for Tsubakimoto Precision Products Co., Ltd. (Tsubakimoto). Because no interested parties provided comments concerning our intent to rescind in part, we are rescinding the Japan review with respect to Tsubakimoto.
Changes Since the Preliminary Results
Based on our analysis of the comments received, we made revisions and corrected programming and other errors in the weighted-average dumping margins which we included in the Preliminary Results and the Post-Preliminary Analysis, where applicable. These changes, however, did not affect the final weighted-average dumping margins for the reviewed respondents. A detailed discussion of each change we made is in the company-specific analysis memoranda dated concurrently with this notice, which are on file electronically via IA ACCESS and in the CRU of the main Commerce building.
Final Results of the Reviews

In accordance with the Final Modification for Reviews,
we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to liquidate the entries pertaining to these reviews without regard to antidumping duties because the weighted-average dumping margin for each respondent is zero or de minimis.
The Department clarified its “automatic assessment” regulation on May 6, 2003. This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the period of review produced by companies selected for individual examination in these reviews for which the reviewed companies did not know their merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the country-specific all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. For a full discussion of this clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of these reviews.
Cash Deposit Requirements
Because we revoked the antidumping duty orders on ball bearings and parts thereof from Japan and the United Kingdom effective September 15, 2011, no cash deposits for estimated antidumping duties on future entries of subject merchandise will be required.
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 the 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.
These final results of administrative reviews are issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
