Antidumping duty orders revoked - Ball bearings from Japan, the UK (refund opportunities) 

March 31:  The U.S. Department of Commerce last week published the final results of the sunset review and the revocation of the antidumping orders covering ball bearings and parts thereof from Japan and the United Kingdom.

The Commerce Department revoked the orders because no interested domestic party participated in the sunset review.

The effective date of the revocation is September 15, 2011.

Read the Commerce Department release [PDF 176 KB] as published in the Federal Register.

Commerce announced that it will issue instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to terminate suspension of liquidation for entries of subject merchandise made on or after September 15, 2011.

Liquidation of entries made prior to September 15, 2011, remains suspended pending completion of administrative reviews and such entries may be liquidated with antidumping duties assessed.

KPMG observation

Importers that imported ball bearings or parts thereof from Japan or the United Kingdom after September 15, 2011, and subject antidumping deposits need to monitor their entries and determine that appropriate refunds are issued in a timely manner.
