Roller Chain, Other Than Bicycle, From Japan: Amended Final Results of Expedited Sunset Review

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce

ACTION: Notice of Amendment to Final Results of Expedited Sunset Review: Roller Chain, Other Than Bicycle, from Japan

SUMMARY: On November 10, 1998, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') published in the Federal Register (63 FR 63026) the final results of its expedited sunset review of the antidumping finding on roller chain, other than bicycle, from Japan. Subsequent to the publication of the final results, we received comments requesting correction of ministerial errors appearing in the notice. After analyzing the comments submitted, we are amending our final results to correct the ministerial errors. Based on the correction of the ministerial errors, we removed from the Appendix contained in the notice of final results, the listing for Enuma Chain/Daido and for Enuma Chain/Meisi. These combination producers/exporters were not reviewed in the first administrative review conducted by the Department and, therefore, should not have been included in the Appendix. In addition, we are correcting the margin listed in the Appendix for Sugiyama/HKK from 15 percent to 0.15 percent.

EFFECTIVE DATE: December 16, 1998.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Martha V. Douthit or Melissa G. Skinner, Office of Policy for Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th St. & Constitution Ave., NW, Washington, D.C. 20230: telephone (202) 482-3207 or (202) 482-1560, respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On November 10, 1998, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') published in the Federal Register (63 FR 63026) the final results of its expedited sunset review of the antidumping finding on roller chain, other than bicycle, from Japan. Subsequent to the publication of the final results, we received comments on behalf of Daido Tsusho Co., Ltd. and Daido Corporation (collectively ``Daido'') requesting correction of ministerial errors appearing in the notice.

Clerical Error Allegations

Daido alleges that the Department stated in its notice of final results that it intended to use the ``original margins calculated by the Department'' as reported in Roller Chain, Other Than Bicycle, From Japan; 46 FR 44488 (September 4, 1981). Because the manufacturer/ exporter combinations of Enuma Chain/Daido and Enuma Chain/Meisi were not included in the September 4, 1981, notice, they should be deleted from the November 10, 1998, notice, and from the information reported to the International Trade Commission. Daido also alleges that the November 10, 1998, notice of final results contains a typographical error that should be corrected. Specifically, Daido alleges that the September 4, 1981, notice shows a dumping margin of ``.15%'' for the Sugiyama/HKK manufacturer/exporter combination, whereas the November 10, 1998, notice shows a dumping margin of 15% for the combination.

After analyzing the comments submitted, we are amending our final results to correct the ministerial errors. Based on the correction of the ministerial errors, we remove from the Appendix contained in the notice of final result, the listing for Enuma Chain/Daido and for Enuma Chain/Meisi. These combination producers/exporters were not reviewed in the first administrative review conducted by the Department and, therefore, should not have been included in the Appendix. In addition, we are correcting the margin listed in the Appendix for Sugiyama/HKK from 15 percent to 0.15 percent.

Amended Final Results of Review

A complete revised Appendix is attached.

This amendment is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(h) and 777(i) of the Act.
