Background

On June 15, 1987, the Department of Commerce (Department) published in the Federal Register the antidumping duty order on tapered roller bearings and parts thereof, finished and unfinished (TRBs), from the People's Republic of China (PRC).[1] On June 2, 2014, the Department published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on TRBs from the PRC covering the period June 1, 2013, through May 31, 2014.[2] The Department received timely requests for an antidumping duty administrative review from Changshan Peer Bearing Co. Ltd. (CPZ/SKF), GGB Bearing Technology (Suzhou) Co., Ltd., Ningbo Xinglun Bearings Import & Export Co., Ltd., and Xinchang Kaiyuan Automotive Bearing Co., Ltd. Additionally, the Department received timely requests for review from the petitioner, the Timken Company, for CPZ/SKF and Yantai CMC Bearing Co., Ltd., and from CNP Automotive Inc. (CNP), a U.S. importer of TRBs, for Guangzhou Longgo Auto Parts Inc. (Longgo) and Zhaoqing Native Produce Import and Export Co., Ltd. (Zhaoqing Native). On July 31, 2014, in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of administrative review with respect to these companies.[3] On September 29, 2014, CNP withdrew its request for an administrative review of Longgo and Zhaoqing Native.

Rescission, In Part

Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party that requested the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. CNP's withdrawal of its request was submitted within the 90-day period and, thus, is timely. Because CNP's withdrawal of its request for an antidumping duty administrative review is timely and because no other party requested a review of Longgo and Zhaoqing Native, we are rescinding this administrative review, in part, with respect to these companies, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).[4]

Assessment

The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For the companies for which this review is rescinded, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice.

Notification to Importers

This notice serves as a 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 Secretary's presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return/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 violation which is subject to sanction.

This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751 and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
