OPINION

TSOUCALAS, Judge:

Pursuant to Rule 56.1 of the Rules of this Court, plaintiff, Allied-Signal Aerospace Company, Garrett Engine Division and Garrett Auxiliary Power Division ("Allied-Signal"), moves for an order granting judgment on the agency record. Allied-Signal is an importer of bearings manufactured by SNFA Bearings, Ltd. ("SNFA"). This motion challenges the final administrative determination of the Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration ("Commerce" or "ITA") for antifriction bearings from France. Antifriction Bearings (Other Than Tapered Roller Bearings) and Parts Thereof From France; Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews ("Final Results"), 56 Fed.Reg. 31,748 (1991).

BACKGROUND

In May 1989, the ITA published Final Determinations of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Antifriction Bearings (Other Than Tapered Roller Bearings) and Parts Thereof From France ("LTFV determination"), 54 Fed.Reg. 19,092 (1989). In this LTFV determination, the ITA assigned antidumping duty margins to French companies that exported antifriction bearings including SNFA.

In May 1990, the ITA published a notice of an opportunity to request administrative reviews of the antidumping orders on antifriction bearings. Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review, 55 Fed.Reg. 19,093 (1990). In June 1990, the ITA initiated reviews of the antidumping duty orders on antifriction bearings from France, including plaintiff's imports. Antifriction Bearings (Other Than Tapered Roller Bearings) and Parts Thereof From the Federal Republic of Germany, France, Italy, Japan, Romania, Singapore, Sweden, Thailand and the United Kingdom Initiation of Antidumping Administrative Reviews, 55 Fed.Reg. 23,575 (1990).

The final results of the administrative review at issue were published in July 1991. Final Results, 56 Fed.Reg. at 31,748. In the Final Results, the ITA resorted to best information available and selected the highest dumping margins of any company from the LTFV determination. Antifriction Bearings (Other Than Tapered Roller Bearings) and Parts Thereof From the Federal Republic of Germany; Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review ("Issues Appendix"), 56 Fed.Reg. 31,692, 31,705 (1991). These dumping margins were 66.42% for ball bearings and 18.37% for cylindrical roller bearings. Final Results, 56 Fed.Reg. at 31,750. Plaintiff claims that Commerce "punitively" applied as best information available the highest dumping rates from
