ITA - Antidumping duty orders reinstated on ball bearings from Japan, UK 

December 11:  The U.S. International Trade Administration (ITA) is reinstating antidumping duty orders on ball bearings, and parts thereof, from Japan and the United Kingdom.

According to an ITA notice [PDF 220 KB] obtained through informal channels and not yet published in the Federal Register, the antidumping duty orders are being reinstated following decisions of the U.S. Court of International Trade and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

The trade court originally affirmed a negative injury determination of the International Trade Commission (ITC) on remand in the second sunset review of the antidumping duty orders on ball bearings from Japan and the UK. The Commerce Department then revoked the orders.

The Federal Circuit, however, reversed the trade court’s decision, and directed the trade court to reinstate the affirmative material injury determinations. In November 2013, the trade court issued a final judgment reinstating the ITC’s affirmative injury determinations.

The ITA notice (dated December 9, 2013) reinstates the orders for periods May 1, 2009, through April 30, 2010, and May 1, 2010, through April 30, 2011.
