SUMMARY: On February 9, 2007, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published its preliminary results in the antidumping duty administrative review and new shipper reviews and notice of partial rescission for wooden bedroom furniture from the People’s Republic of China. The period of review (‘‘POR’’) for the administrative review and the new shipper reviews is June 24, 2004 through December 31, 2005. For the final results of administrative review, see this notice. As a result of an inadvertent error, the version of this notice released on Wednesday, August 8, 2007, contained the appendix from the investigation of this proceeding, rather than the appendix intended for this administrative review. These amended final results correct this error. No changes to the analysis, methodologies employed, or the rates calculated were made. Because this error was discovered jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES AGENCY: VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:26 Aug 21, 2007 Jkt 211001 prior to publication in the Federal Register, this amendment is being published in place of the original version released on August 8, 2007. In the administrative review, we have determined that all five mandatory respondents (i.e., Fine Furniture (Shanghai) Limited and its affiliates (‘‘Fine Furniture’’); Foshan Guanqiu Furniture Co., Ltd. (‘‘Foshan Guanqiu’’); Fujian Lianfu Forestry Co./Fujian Wonder Pacific Inc./Fuzhou Huan Mei Furniture Co., Ltd./Jiangsu Dare Furniture Co., Ltd. (‘‘Dare Group’’); Shanghai Aosen Furniture Co., Ltd. (‘‘Shanghai Aosen’’) and Shanghai Starcorp Furniture Co., Ltd, Starcorp Furniture (Shanghai) Co., Ltd., Orin Furniture (Shanghai) Co., Ltd., Shanghai Star Furniture Co., Ltd., and Shanghai Xing Ding Furniture Industrial Co., Ltd. (collectively, ‘‘Starcorp’’)) made sales in the United States at prices below normal value. With respect to the remaining respondents in the administrative review (collectively, ‘‘Separate Rate Applicants’’), we have determined that 42 entities have provided sufficient evidence that they are separate from the state-controlled entity, and we have established a weighted-average margin based on the rates we have calculated for the five mandatory respondents, excluding any rates that are zero, de minimis, or based entirely on adverse facts available, to be applied to these separate-rate entities. We invited interested parties to comment on our preliminary results of review. For the new shipper reviews, the Department also reviewed two exporters/producers, i.e., Dongguan Huanghouse Furniture Co., Ltd. (‘‘Huanghouse’’) and Tianjin First Wood Co., Ltd. (‘‘First Wood’’). Based on our analysis of the comments we received, we have made certain changes to our calculations for all mandatory respondents. The final dumping margins for this review are listed in the ‘‘Final Results Margins’’ section below. DATES: Effective Date: August 22, 2007.

For the final results, the E:\FR\FM\22AUN1.SGM 22AUN1 46960 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 162 / Wednesday, August 22, 2007 / Notices Department is continuing to apply as partial AFA the highest labor values reported by Dare Group for any CONNUM. See ‘‘Application of Partial Facts Available’’ section, below, the Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 38, and WBF Dare Group Final Results Analysis Memo 08/08/07. Fine Furniture • For the final results, the Department has determined not to apply partial facts available with respect to certain of Fine Furniture’s sample sales. With respect to Fine Furniture’s sample sales, we are using Fine Furniture’s reported data in our margin calculation. See ‘‘Analysis Memorandum for the Final Results of the First Administrative Review of Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People’s Republic of China: Fine Furniture (Shanghai) Limited’’ dated August 8, 2007. Foshan Guanqiu • For the final results, the Department has recalculated surrogate values for resin and paint used by Foshan Guanqiu. See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comments 47 and 48, and ‘‘Analysis Memorandum for the Final Results of the First Administrative Review of Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People’s Republic of China: Foshan Guanqiu’’ dated August 8. 2007. jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES Starcorp • For the preliminary results, we calculated a dumping margin of 74.69 percent for Starcorp, using partial adverse facts available. However, for the final results, we are applying total AFA. See Adverse Facts Available section, below. See also Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 63, and the companion Memorandum regarding ‘‘Application of Adverse Facts Available for Shanghai Starcorp Funiture Co., Ltd, Starcorp Furniture (Shanghai) Co., Ltd., Orin Furniture (Shanghai) Co., Ltd., Shanghai Star Furniture Co., Ltd., and Shanghai Xing Ding Furniture Industrial Co., Ltd. in the Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People’s Republic of China,’’ dated August 8, 2007 (‘‘Starcorp AFA Memorandum’’). Surrogate Country In the preliminary results, the Department stated that it treats the PRC as a non-market economy (‘‘NME’’) country, and therefore, the Department calculated normal value in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act, which applies to NME countries. Also, the Department stated that it selected India as the appropriate surrogate country to VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:26 Aug 21, 2007 Jkt 211001 use in this review for the following reasons: (1) India is at a level of economic development comparable to that of the PRC; (2) India is a significant producer of comparable merchandise; and (3) India provides the best opportunity to use quality, publicly available data to value the factors of production (‘‘FOP’’). See Preliminary Results, 72 FR at 6208. For the final results, the Department has made no changes to its findings with respect to the selection of a surrogate country. See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 1. Separate Rates In proceedings involving NME countries, the Department begins with a rebuttable presumption that all companies within the country are subject to government control and, thus, should be assigned a single antidumping duty deposit rate (‘‘PRCwide rate’’). It is the Department’s policy to assign all exporters of merchandise subject to review in an NME country this single rate unless an exporter can demonstrate that it is free of de jure (in law) and de facto (in fact) control over its export decisions, so as to be entitled to a separate rate. In the Preliminary Results, the Department found that the mandatory respondents and numerous companies which provided responses to the separate-rate application or separate-rate certification were eligible for a rate separate from the PRC-wide rate. See Preliminary Results, 72 FR at 6208, 6210. For the final results, we have determined that additional companies qualify for separate-rate status. For a complete listing of all the companies that received a separate rate, see the Final Results Margins section, below. See also, Memorandum regarding ‘‘Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People’s Republic of China: Separate Rates for Producers/Exporters that Submitted Separate Rate Certifications and Applications’’ (‘‘Final SeparateRates Memo’’), dated August 8, 2007. In the Preliminary Results, we did not grant separate-rate status for 14 companies. See Preliminary Results 72 FR at 6209, 6210. Of those, we stated that we would request additional information from six applicants after the Preliminary Results, whereupon we would reevaluate their eligibility for a separate rate for the final results. See Preliminary Results 72 FR at 6210. Also, three additional companies (i.e., Zhejiang Niannian Hong Industrial Co. Ltd. (‘‘Nanaholy’’); Triple J Enterprises Co. Ltd. (‘‘Triple J’’), Zhongshan Winny Furniture Ltd. (‘‘Winny’’)) filed postpreliminary submissions asking that the PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Department reconsider its preliminary decision to deny them separate-rate status. See Final Separate-Rates Memo. Based on the information submitted in response to our post-preliminary supplemental questionnaires, we find that Guangdong New Four Seas Furniture Manufacturing Ltd.; King Kei Furniture Factory/King Kei Trading Co., Ltd./Jin Ching Trading Co. Ltd.; and Top Art Furniture Factory/Sanxig Top Art Funiture/Ngai Kun Trading have provided sufficient information to establish an absence of government control and eligibility for separate-rate status. Therefore, the evidence placed on the record of this administrative review by these separate-rate respondents demonstrates an absence of government control, both in law and in fact, with respect to each of the exporter’s exports of the subject merchandise, in accordance with the criteria identified in Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Sparklers from the People’s Republic of China, 56 FR 20588 (May 6, 1991), and Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Silicon Carbide from the People’s Republic of China, 59 FR 22585 (May 2,1994). As a result, for the purposes of these final results, we have granted separate rate status to the above-named separate-rate applicants that shipped wooden bedroom furniture to the United States during the POR. Additionally, we have granted a separate rate to other separate-rate applicants.15 See Final Separate-Rates Memo. 15 Ace Furniture & Crafts Ltd. (a.k.a.

L. George Timber & Co. Ltd. (‘‘Conghua’’); Zhongshan Youcheng Wooden Arts & Crafts Co., Ltd. (‘‘ZY Wooden’’) and Macau Youcheng Trading Co. (‘‘MY Trading’’) (collectively, ‘‘ZY Wooden/MY Trading’’); Kunwa Enterprise Company (‘‘Kunwa’’), Nanaholy; Triple J, Winny, Kong Fong Art Factory and Kong Fong Mao Iek Hong (‘‘Kong Fong’’), Putian Ou Dian Furniture Co., Ltd. (‘‘Putian’’), and Speedy International, Ltd. (‘‘Speedy’’). Therefore, we determine that Conghua, Kunwa, Nanaholy, Triple J, Winny, ZY Wooden/MY Trading, Kong Fong, Putian, and Speedy are part of the PRCwide entity and, therefore, do not qualify for a separate rate and will be subject to PRC-wide rate. See Final Separate-Rates Memo. The margin we calculated in the Preliminary Results for these separaterate companies was 62.94 percent. Because the rates of the selected mandatory respondents have changed since the Preliminary Results, we have recalculated the rate for Separate-Rate Applicants. The final rate is 35.38 percent. See Memorandum to the File from Eugene Degnan, ‘‘Calculation of Separate Rate,’’ dated August 8, 2007. Affiliation In the Preliminary Results, we stated Fujian Lianfu Forestry Co. Ltd./Fujian Wonder Pacific Inc./Fuzhou Huan Mei Furniture Co., Ltd./Jiangsu Dare Furniture Co., Ltd., collectively, (‘‘Dare Group’’) were affiliated pursuant to sections 771(33)(A), (E) and (F) of the Act and that these companies should be treated as a single entity for the purposes of the antidumping administrative review of wooden bedroom furniture from the PRC. See Preliminary Results, 72 FR at 6208. For the final results, we have made no changes to our findings with respect to Dare Group’s affiliation. jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES Adverse Facts Available Sections 776(a)(1) and (2) of the Act provide that the Department shall apply ‘‘facts otherwise available’’ if necessary information is not on the record or an interested party or any other person (A) International Corporation; T.J.

VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:26 Aug 21, 2007 Jkt 211001 withholds information that has been requested, (B) fails to provide information within the deadlines established, or in the form and manner requested by the Department, subject to subsections (c)(1) and (e) of section 782, (C) significantly impedes a proceeding, or (D) provides information that cannot be verified as provided by section 782(i) of the Act. Where the Department determines that a response to a request for information does not comply with the request, section 782(d) of the Act provides that the Department will so inform the party submitting the response and will, to the extent practicable, provide that party the opportunity to remedy or explain the deficiency. If the party fails to remedy the deficiency within the applicable time limits and subject to section 782(e) of the Act, the Department may disregard all or part of the original and subsequent responses, as appropriate. Section 782(e) of the Act provides that the Department ‘‘shall not decline to consider information that is submitted by an interested party and is necessary to the determination but does not meet all applicable requirements established by the administering authority’’ if the information is timely, can be verified, is not so incomplete that it cannot be used, and if the interested party acted to the best of its ability in providing the information. Where all of these conditions are met, the statute requires the Department to use the information if it can do so without undue difficulties. Section 776(b) of the Act further provides that the Department may use an adverse inference in applying the facts otherwise available when a party has failed to cooperate by not acting to the best of its ability to comply with a request for information. Section 776(b) of the Act also authorizes the Department to use as AFA information derived from the petition, the final determination, a previous administrative review, or other information placed on the record. Application of Facts Available First Wood In the Preliminary Results, we determined pursuant to sections 776(a)(1), 776(a)(2), and 776(b) of the Act to apply AFA to First Wood in the new shipper review because First Wood: withheld the sales and cost reconciliations as well as extensive factors of production (‘‘FOP’’) data requested by the Department; failed to provide the units of measure for its FOP consumption in a form or manner requested by the Department; reported PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 46961 its FOP consumption in units of measure in a manner that does not allow the Department to identify the actual consumption rates or calculate the value for the FOP consumed in the production of subject merchandise, thereby significantly impeding the proceeding, resulting in the sales and FOP data being unverifiable. See Preliminary Results, 72 FR at 6212–13. We also determined that First Wood did not act ‘‘to the best of its ability,’’ as required by the statute. See Preliminary Results, 72 FR at 6212–13. Thus, based on First Wood’s actions, we preliminarily determined that it failed to cooperate to the best of its ability in responding to the Department’s requests for information. Therefore, we preliminarily determined that, when selecting from among the facts otherwise available, an adverse inference is warranted for First Wood pursuant to section 776(b) of the Act. See Preliminary Results, 72 FR at 6212, 6213. For the final results, we have made no changes to our findings with respect to First Wood’s total AFA determination. See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comments 43 and 44. Huanghouse In the Preliminary Results, we determined that because Huanghouse ceased participating in the new shipper review, and none of its submitted information could be verified, Huanghouse did not demonstrate its entitlement to a separate rate and was, therefore, subject to the PRC-wide rate. See Preliminary Results, 72 FR at 6212– 13. For the final results, we made no changes to our findings with respect to Huanghouse’s determination. Kong Fong Art Factory and Kong Fong Mao Iek Hong In the Preliminary Results, we determined that because Kong Fong ceased participating in the administrative review and would not provide a response to the Department’s supplemental questionnaire, Kong Fong did not demonstrate its entitlement to a separate rate and was, therefore, subject to the PRC-wide rate. See Preliminary Results, 72 FR at 6210–12. For the final results, we made no changes to our findings with respect to Huanghouse’s determination. Putian Ou Dian Furniture Co., Ltd. In the Preliminary Results, we determined that because Putian submitted a withdrawal of its request for the administrative review after the 90day regulatory deadline (i.e., November 30, 2006), and stated that it would not provide a response to the Department’s E:\FR\FM\22AUN1.SGM 22AUN1 46962 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 162 / Wednesday, August 22, 2007 / Notices supplemental questionnaire. Thus Putian stopped participating in this review, did not demonstrate its entitlement to a separate rate and was, therefore, subject to the PRC-wide rate. See Preliminary Results, 72 FR at 6211– 12. For the final results, we made no changes to our findings with respect to Putian’s determination. jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES Speedy International, Ltd. In the Preliminary Results, we determined that because Speedy International, Ltd. (‘‘Speedy’’) failed to support its claim that its owner was a citizen of Taiwan, and did not complete the sections of the separate rate application for NME owned entities, thus, Speedy did not demonstrate its entitlement to a separate rate and was, therefore, subject to the PRC-wide rate. See Preliminary Results, 72 FR at 6211– 12. For the final results, we have made no changes to our findings with respect to Speedy’s determination. Starcorp The Department finds that the information necessary to calculate an accurate and reliable margin is not available on the record with respect to Starcorp. See Issues and Decision Memo at Comment 63; and Starcorp AFA Memorandum. Specifically, Starcorp has significantly impeded the Department’s ability to calculate accurate margins for a significant percentage of its U.S. sales as a direct result of its misreporting and withholding of information that would have served as the basis for the Department’s analysis. Therefore, we find use of facts available appropriate pursuant to sections 776(a)(2)(A), (B) and (C) of the Act, and as discussed in extensive detail in the Starcorp AFA Memorandum. Despite having numerous opportunities to provide the Department with requested information with respect to merchandise sold but not produced during the POR, the facts on the record lead the Department to the conclusion that Starcorp did not act as a reasonable respondent by withholding certain information necessary to calculate an accurate margin (i.e., it failed to disclose the methodology it used to derive its proxy FOPs for merchandise sold but not produced during the POR (i.e., proxy FOPs) and failed to provide forthcoming responses in a timely manner to the Department’s numerous direct questions regarding its reporting methodology (i.e., use of proxy FOPs and use of sales quantities instead of production quantities to weight certain FOPs within numerous CONNUMs)). See Starcorp AFA Memorandum and Comment 63 of the VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:26 Aug 21, 2007 Jkt 211001 Issues and Decision Memorandum. These failures significantly impeded the Department’s ability to comprehend and analyze Starcorp’s data adequately within the Department’s statutory timeframe. As a result of Starcorp’s repeated misreporting and failure to provide information that was responsive to the Department’s requests, the Department’s ability to calculate accurate margins for a significant portion of Starcorp’s sales was compromised. Starcorp further impeded the Department’s ability to calculate accurate margins as a direct result of its failure to provide, in the form and manner requested by the Department and within the Department’s established deadlines, the information that would have served as the basis of the Department’s analysis, pursuant to sections 776(a)(2)(B) and (C) of the Act. Specifically, and as discussed in great detail in the Starcorp AFA Memorandum, Starcorp did not provide plant-specific plant data until very late in the proceeding, and did not disclose that these data do not contain FOPs for all of the CONNUMs correlating to its U.S. sales (i.e., the plant-specific databases did not contain the requisite data for calculating normal values for all of Starcorp’s U.S. sales and thus do not contain the data necessary to calculate a dumping margin for those sales). Despite having numerous opportunities to provide the plant-specific and weighted-average data in a timely manner, as evidenced by the Department’s numerous supplemental questionnaires addressing deficiencies in Starcorp’s responses, Starcorp did not do so. Thus, as explained in detail in the Starcorp AFA Memorandum, the facts on the record lead the Department to the conclusion that Starcorp failed to provide forthcoming responses in a timely manner to the Department’s numerous direct requests, and this failure significantly impeded the Department’s ability to comprehend and analyze Starcorp’s data adequately within the Department’s statutory time frame. As a result, the Department’s ability to calculate accurate margins for any of Starcorp’s sales was compromised. Further, the Department also found Starcorp’s financial statements to be unreliable. See Comment 56 of the Issues and Decision Memorandum and the Starcorp AFA Memo. Because the Department finds that Starcorp’s submitted information cannot be tied to reliable financial statements or a reliable financial recording system, the Department must conclude that any submitted data are also not reliable. PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Finally, there remain significant discrepancies between Starcorp’s numerous data files and the narrative descriptions Starcorp provided purporting to explain those data files. For example, there are inconsistencies related to: which unique products were not sold during the POR and which FOPs were therefore based on proxy FOP data; Starcorp’s reported production quantities for sets, notwithstanding Starcorp’s repeated statements that it does not produce sets; and Starcorp’s inclusion of the same product in the FOP buildups for more than one CONNUM. Based on the analysis above, for the final results, we applied facts available pursuant to sections 776(a)(2)(A), (B), and (C) of the Act with respect to Starcorp’s sales. Furthermore, it is apparent from the facts on the record, i.e., Starcorp’s repeated unresponsiveness to information requests, its repeated failure to provide requested data in a timely manner, its withholding of its methodology to determine the product-specific source of proxy FOP data, and the significant level of inconsistencies and contradictions in its data and narrative submissions (including information obtained at verification), that Starcorp did not act as a reasonable respondent because its failure to be responsive was unnecessary. See Starcorp AFA Memorandum. Thus, we find that Starcorp failed to cooperate by not acting to the best of its ability. For this reason, we find it appropriate that an adverse inference be applied when selecting from among the facts available in accordance with section 776(b) of the Act. As AFA we are applying a rate of 216.01 percent, the rate calculated for a respondent in the most recently completed new shipper reviews of wooden bedroom furniture from the PRC, covering the first 12 months of this administrative review. See Final Results of the 2004–2005 Semi-Annual New Shipper Reviews: Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People’s Republic of China, 71 FR 70739 (December 6, 2006) (‘‘04–05 New Shipper Reviews’’). This represents the highest rate from the history of this proceeding. Application of Partial Facts Available Sections 776(a)(2)(A) and (B) of the Act provide for the use of facts available when an interested party withholds information that has been requested by the Department or when an interested party fails to provide the information requested in a timely manner and in the form required. Additionally, section 776(b) of the Act provides for the use of E:\FR\FM\22AUN1.SGM 22AUN1 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 162 / Wednesday, August 22, 2007 / Notices AFA when an interested party has failed to cooperate by not acting to the best of its ability. We have concluded that the Dare Group did not cooperate to the best of its ability. jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES Dare Group Because the Dare Group did not provide complete information with respect to indirect and packing labor for certain CONNUMs, as requested in the Department’s questionnaires, we preliminarily determined that the use of an adverse inference was warranted to value these FOPs. See Preliminary Results, 72 FR at 6214. For the final results, we have determined to continue to apply sections 776(a)(2)(A), (a)(2)(B), and (b) of the Act because the Dare Group did not provide us with the information we requested. Therefore, in accordance with sections 776(a)(2) and (b) of the Act, we have applied partial AFA in calculating the Dare Group’s margin. For each CONNUM for which zero labor hours were reported, we have applied the highest labor hour value for any CONNUM reported in the Dare Group’s FOP database. See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 38. Corroboration Section 776(c) of the Act provides that, when the Department relies on secondary information rather than on information obtained in the course of an investigation or review, it shall, to the extent practicable, corroborate that information from independent sources that are reasonably at its disposal. Secondary information is information derived from the petition that gave rise to the investigation or review, the final determination concerning the subject merchandise, or any previous review under section 751 concerning the subject merchandise. See e.g., Statement of Administration Action accompanying the Uruguay Round Agreements Act, H.R. Rep. No. 103–316, (1994) (SAA) at 870. Corroborate means that the Department will satisfy itself that the secondary information to be used has probative value. To corroborate secondary information, the Department will, to the extent practicable, examine the reliability and relevance of the information to be used. See e.g., Tapered Roller Bearings and Parts Thereof, Finished and Unfinished from Japan, and Tapered Roller Bearings, Four Inches or Less in Outside Diameter, and Components Thereof, from Japan; Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews and Partial Termination of Administrative Reviews, 61 FR 57391, 57392 (November 6, 1996) (unchanged in the final determination). Independent VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:26 Aug 21, 2007 Jkt 211001 sources used to corroborate such evidence may include, for example, published price lists, official import statistics and customs data, and information obtained from interested parties during the particular investigation or review. See 19 CFR 351.308(d). The AFA rate that the Department is now using was determined in the recently published new shipper review. See 04–05 New Shipper Reviews 71 FR at 70741. In that new shipper review, the Department calculated a companyspecific rate of 216.01 percent, which was above the PRC-wide rate established in the less-than-fair-value investigation. Because this new rate is a company-specific calculated rate concerning subject merchandise, we have determined this rate to be reliable. With respect to the relevance aspect of corroboration, the Department will consider information reasonably at its disposal to determine whether a margin continues to have relevance. Where circumstances indicate that the selected margin is not appropriate as AFA, the Department will disregard the margin and determine an appropriate margin. For example, in Fresh Cut Flowers From Mexico: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 61 FR 6812 (February 22, 1996), the Department disregarded the highest margin in that case as adverse best information available (the predecessor to facts available), because the margin was based on another company’s uncharacteristic business expense resulting in an unusually high margin. Similarly, the Department does not apply a margin that has been discredited. See D&L Supply Co. v. United States, 113 F.3d 1220, 1221 (Fed. Cir. 1997) where the Court ruled that the Department will not use a margin that has been judicially invalidated. Nothing on the record of this review calls into question the relevance of the margin selected as AFA. Further, the selected margin is a company-specific calculated rate for another respondent for a period covering 12 months (i.e., June 24, 2004, through June 30, 2005) of this 18-month administrative review. Moreover, this rate has not been invalidated judicially, and falls within the range of margins calculated for another respondent in this review. Therefore, it is appropriate to use the selected rate as AFA and we have determined the 216.01 percent rate to be relevant for use in this administrative review. As the adverse margin is both reliable and relevant, we determine that it has probative value. Accordingly, we determine that this rate meets the corroboration criteria established in PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 46963 section 776(c) that secondary information have probative value. As a result, the Department determines that the margin is corroborated for the purposes of this administrative review and may reasonably be applied to First Wood, Huanghouse, Kong Fong, Putian, Speedy, and Starcorp, and the PRC-wide entity as AFA. The PRC-Wide Rate Because we begin with the presumption that all companies within an NME country are subject to government control and because only the companies listed under these ‘‘Final Results Margins’’ section, below, have overcome that presumption, we are applying a single antidumping rate (i.e., the PRC-wide rate) to all other exporters of subject merchandise from the PRC. Such companies did not demonstrate entitlement to a separate rate. See e.g., Notice of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Synthetic Indigo from the People’s Republic of China, 65 FR 25706, 25707 (May 3, 2000). The PRC-wide rate applies to all entries of subject merchandise except for entries from the respondents that are listed in the ‘‘Final Results Margins’’ section, below (except as noted). The Department based the margin for the PRC-wide entity on adverse facts available. See Preliminary Results, 72 FR at 6212, 6214. Pursuant to section 776(a) of the Act, the Department found that because the PRC-wide entity failed to respond to the Department’s questionnaires, withheld or failed to provide information in a timely manner or in the form or manner requested by the Department, submitted information that could not be verified, or otherwise impeded the process, it was appropriate to apply a dumping margin for the PRCwide entity using facts otherwise available on the record. The Department further determined that an adverse inference was appropriate because the PRC-wide entity failed to respond to requests for information and therefore failed to cooperate by not acting to the best of its ability. As AFA we are applying the highest calculated rate from the history of this proceeding, a rate calculated for a respondent in the most recently completed new shipper reviews of wooden bedroom furniture from the PRC, covering the first 12 months of this administrative review. See Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People ’s Republic of China: Final Results of the 2004–2005 Semi-Annual New Shipper Reviews, 71 FR 70739 (December 6, 2006).

These deposit requirements shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification of Interested Parties This notice also serves as a final 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 the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (‘‘APOs’’) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under the APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:26 Aug 21, 2007 Jkt 211001 of the proceeding.

Amended Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review 
and New Shipper Reviews: Wooden Bedroom Furniture From the People's 
Republic of China

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: On February 9, 2007, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') published its preliminary results in the antidumping duty 
administrative review and new shipper reviews and notice of partial 
rescission for wooden bedroom furniture from the People's Republic of 
China. The period of review (``POR'') for the administrative review and 
the new shipper reviews is June 24, 2004 through December 31, 2005. For 
the final results of administrative review, see this notice. As a 
result of an inadvertent error, the version of this notice released on 
Wednesday, August 8, 2007, contained the appendix from the 
investigation of this proceeding, rather than the appendix intended for 
this administrative review. These amended final results correct this 
error. No changes to the analysis, methodologies employed, or the rates 
calculated were made. Because this error was discovered prior to 
publication in the Federal Register, this amendment is being published 
in place of the original version released on August 8, 2007.
    In the administrative review, we have determined that all five 
mandatory respondents (i.e., Fine Furniture (Shanghai) Limited and its 
affiliates (``Fine Furniture''); Foshan Guanqiu Furniture Co., Ltd. 
(``Foshan Guanqiu''); Fujian Lianfu Forestry Co./Fujian Wonder Pacific 
Inc./Fuzhou Huan Mei Furniture Co., Ltd./Jiangsu Dare Furniture Co., 
Ltd. (``Dare Group''); Shanghai Aosen Furniture Co., Ltd. (``Shanghai 
Aosen'') and Shanghai Starcorp Furniture Co., Ltd, Starcorp Furniture 
(Shanghai) Co., Ltd., Orin Furniture (Shanghai) Co., Ltd., Shanghai 
Star Furniture Co., Ltd., and Shanghai Xing Ding Furniture Industrial 
Co., Ltd. (collectively, ``Starcorp'')) made sales in the United States 
at prices below normal value. With respect to the remaining respondents 
in the administrative review (collectively, ``Separate Rate 
Applicants''), we have determined that 42 entities have provided 
sufficient evidence that they are separate from the state-controlled 
entity, and we have established a weighted-average margin based on the 
rates we have calculated for the five mandatory respondents, excluding 
any rates that are zero, de minimis, or based entirely on adverse facts 
available, to be applied to these separate-rate entities. We invited 
interested parties to comment on our preliminary results of review. For 
the new shipper reviews, the Department also reviewed two exporters/
producers, i.e., Dongguan Huanghouse Furniture Co., Ltd. 
(``Huanghouse'') and Tianjin First Wood Co., Ltd. (``First Wood''). 
Based on our analysis of the comments we received, we have made certain 
changes to our calculations for all mandatory respondents. The final 
dumping margins for this review are listed in the ``Final Results 
Margins'' section below.

DATES: Effective Date: August 22, 2007.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Gene Degnan or Robert Bolling, Import 
Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of 
Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 
20230; telephone: (202) 482-0414 and (202) 482-3434, respectively.

Background

    The Department published its preliminary results on February 9, 
2007. See Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People's Republic of China: 
Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 
Preliminary Results of New Shipper Reviews and Notice of Partial 
Rescission, 72 FR 6201 (February 9, 2007) (``Preliminary Results''). 
The Department conducted verification of two of the mandatory 
respondents' and certain Separate-Rate Applicants' data in the People's 
Republic of China (``PRC''). See Verification section, below, for 
additional information.
    On June 12, 2007, the Department extended the deadline for the 
final results of review to August 8, 2007. See Wooden Bedroom Furniture 
from the People's Republic of China: Extension of Time Limits for the 
Final Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and New 
Shipper Reviews, 72 FR 32281 (June 12, 2007).
    We invited parties to comment on the Preliminary Results. We 
received comments from the Petitioners, certain mandatory respondents, 
certain Separate-Rate Applicants, and other interested parties to this 
review. On June 18, 2007, parties submitted case briefs. On June 26, 
2007, parties submitted rebuttal briefs. On July 12, 2007, the 
Department held public and closed hearings.

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties in 
this review are addressed in the memorandum from Stephen J. Claeys, 
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, to David M. 
Spooner, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, ``Issues and

Administrative Review and New Shipper Reviews on Wooden Bedroom 
Furniture from the People's Republic of China,'' Issues and Decision 
Memorandum, dated August 8, 2007, which is hereby adopted by this 
notice (``Issues and Decision Memorandum''). A list of the issues which 
parties raised and to which we respond in the Issues and Decision

Verification

    As provided in section 782(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(``Act''), we verified the information submitted by certain mandatory 
respondents and certain Separate-Rate Applicants for use in our final 
results. See the Department's verification reports on the record of 
this review in the CRU with respect to Shanghai Aosen; Starcorp; Baigou 
Crafts Factory of Fengkai (``Baigou Crafts''); Dongguan Dihao Furniture 
Co., Ltd. (``Dihao''); and Transworld (Zhangzhou) Furniture Co., Ltd. 
(``Transworld''). For all verified companies, we used standard 
verification procedures, including examination of relevant accounting 
and production records, as well as original source documents provided 
by respondents. For the further details on the verifications, see the 
aforementioned verification reports.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on an analysis of comments received, the Department has made 
certain changes in the margin calculations. For the final results, the 
Department has made the following changes with respect to Shanghai 
Aosen, Dare Group, Foshan Guanqui, Starcorp, and Fine Furniture.

General Issues

Calculation of Surrogate Financial Ratios

     For the final results, the Department is no longer using 
the Nizamuddin Furnitures Private Limited 2004-2005 financial statement 
in the calculation of the surrogate financial ratios. See Issues and 
Decision Memorandum.
     For the final results, the Department is using the 
following additional financial statements (not used in the preliminary 
results) to calculate surrogate financial ratios: (1) Nizamuddin 
Furnitures Private Limited (2005-2006); (2) James Andrew Newton Art 
Export Pvt. Ltd. (2004-2005); (3) Nikhil Decore Industries Pvt. Ltd. 
(2004-2005); and (4) Indian Furniture Products Limited (2005-2006). See 
Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 17, and ``First 
Administrative Review of Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People's 
Republic of China: Factor Valuation Memorandum for the Final Results'' 
dated August 8, 2007 (``WBF Final Factor Valuation Memorandum'').
     For the final results, in the calculation of Akriti 
Perfections India Pvt. Ltd.'s surrogate financial ratios, the 
Department has reclassified ``Consumables'' from raw material to 
manufacturing overhead. See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 
21, and WBF Final Factor Valuation Memorandum.
     For the final results, the Department has excluded 
``Octroi'' expenses from the calculation of Huzaifa Furniture 
Industries Pvt. Ltd.'s surrogate financial ratios. See Issues and 
Decision Memorandum at Comment 25.
     For the final results, the Department has included the 
line-item ``Contract Manufacturing'' in manufacturing overhead of Ahuja 
Furnishers Private Limited's surrogate financial ratios. See Issues and 
Decision Memorandum at Comment 18, and WBF Final Factor Valuation 
Memorandum.
     For the final results, the Department has re-classified 
``Bonuses'' and ``Gratuities'' from manufacturing overhead or selling, 
general and administrative expenses to the direct labor portion of 
Materials, Labor and Energy (``ML&E'') in the calculation of surrogate 
financial ratios for Ahuja Furnishers Private Limited, Huzaifa 
Furniture Industries Pvt. Ltd., and Indian Furniture Products Limited. 
See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 20 and WBF Final Factor 
Valuation Memorandum.
     For the final results, the Department has included 
``Closing Stock'' and ``Opening Stock'' in the material portion of ML&E 
in the calculation of Fusion Design Private Ltd.'s surrogate financial 
ratios. See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 23, and WBF Final 
Factor Valuation Memorandum.

Recalculation of Surrogate Values

     For the final results, the Department has recalculated 
surrogate values for the polymers of styrene, cardboard, paint, and 
resin. See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comments 10, 13, 14, 47, 
and 48 and WBF Final Factor Valuation Memorandum.
     For the final results, the Department has calculated a 
surrogate value for mirrors using Glass Yug instead of the Monthly 
Statistics of the Foreign Trade of India, Volume II: Imports. See 
http://www.gtis.com/wta.htm, which we used for the preliminary results. 
See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 12 and WBF Final Factor 
Valuation Memorandum.
     For the final results, the Department has recalculated the 
surrogate value for labor using the surrogate value of $0.83 per hour 
instead of $0.97 per hour used for the preliminary results. See Issues 
and Decision Memorandum at Comment 17 and WBF Final Factor Valuation 
Memorandum.

Company-Specific Issues

Dare Group

     For the final results, the Department has revised the 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule (``HTS'') category used to calculate the 
surrogate value for cardboard. See Issues and Decision Memorandum at 
Comment 34 and WBF Final Factor Valuation Memorandum.
     For the final results, the Department has revised certain 
assessment rate calculations. See Issues and Decision Memorandum at 
Comment 36 and ``Analysis Memorandum for the Final Results of 
Administrative Review of Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People's 
Republic of China for Fujian Lianfu Forestry Co., Ltd., Fuzhou Huan Mei 
Furniture Co. Ltd., and Jiangsu Dare Furniture Co, Ltd.'' dated (August 
8, 2007) (``WBF Dare Group Final Results Analysis Memo 08/08/07'').
     For the final results, the Department has excluded certain 
non-scope merchandise from the margin calculation. See Issues and 
Decision Memorandum at Comment 37 and WBF Dare Group Final Results 
Analysis Memo 08/08/07.
     For the final results, the Department is using a material-
specific conversion rate to calculate surrogate values for 
``FIBERBOARDMD'', ``PAPEREDFIBERBOARDMD'', and ``FIBERBOARDPACKING.'' 
See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 40 and WBF Dare Group 
Final Results Analysis Memo 08/08/07.
     For the final results, the Department has corrected a 
conversion error in the calculation of the surrogate values for 
``WOODPLUG'' and ``OKOUEMEVEMEER.'' See Issues and Decision Memorandum 
at Comments 41 and 42 and WBF Dare Group Final Results Analysis Memo 
08/08/07.
     For the final results, the Department is using data from a 
different HTS category to calculate the surrogate value of ``PIGMENT--
O''. See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 31 and WBF Dare 
Group Final Results Analysis Memo 08/08/07.
     For the final results, the Department is using updated 
quantity data submitted by Dare Group and is no longer applying facts 
available to certain sales where Dare Group reported zero quantity in 
gross unit kilograms. See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 39 
and WBF Dare Group Final Results Analysis Memo 08/08/07.
     In the preliminary results, the Department used partial 
adverse facts available (``AFA'') to value the indirect and packing 
labor which was not reported for certain control numbers (``CONNUMs''). 
For the final results, the

[[Page 46960]]

Department is continuing to apply as partial AFA the highest labor 
values reported by Dare Group for any CONNUM. See ``Application of 
Partial Facts Available'' section, below, the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum at Comment 38, and WBF Dare Group Final Results Analysis 
Memo 08/08/07.

Fine Furniture

     For the final results, the Department has determined not 
to apply partial facts available with respect to certain of Fine 
Furniture's sample sales. With respect to Fine Furniture's sample 
sales, we are using Fine Furniture's reported data in our margin 
calculation. See ``Analysis Memorandum for the Final Results of the 
First Administrative Review of Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the 
People's Republic of China: Fine Furniture (Shanghai) Limited'' dated 
August 8, 2007.

Foshan Guanqiu

     For the final results, the Department has recalculated 
surrogate values for resin and paint used by Foshan Guanqiu. See Issues 
and Decision Memorandum at Comments 47 and 48, and ``Analysis 
Memorandum for the Final Results of the First Administrative Review of 
Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People's Republic of China: Foshan 
Guanqiu'' dated August 8. 2007.

Starcorp

     For the preliminary results, we calculated a dumping 
margin of 74.69 percent for Starcorp, using partial adverse facts 
available. However, for the final results, we are applying total AFA. 
See Adverse Facts Available section, below. See also Issues and 
Decision Memorandum at Comment 63, and the companion Memorandum 
regarding ``Application of Adverse Facts Available for Shanghai 
Starcorp Funiture Co., Ltd, Starcorp Furniture (Shanghai) Co., Ltd., 
Orin Furniture (Shanghai) Co., Ltd., Shanghai Star Furniture Co., Ltd., 
and Shanghai Xing Ding Furniture Industrial Co., Ltd. in the Final 
Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Wooden Bedroom 
Furniture from the People's Republic of China,'' dated August 8, 2007 
(``Starcorp AFA Memorandum'').

Surrogate Country

    In the preliminary results, the Department stated that it treats 
the PRC as a non-market economy (``NME'') country, and therefore, the 
Department calculated normal value in accordance with section 773(c) of 
the Act, which applies to NME countries. Also, the Department stated 
that it selected India as the appropriate surrogate country to use in 
this review for the following reasons: (1) India is at a level of 
economic development comparable to that of the PRC; (2) India is a 
significant producer of comparable merchandise; and (3) India provides 
the best opportunity to use quality, publicly available data to value 
the factors of production (``FOP''). See Preliminary Results, 72 FR at 
6208. For the final results, the Department has made no changes to its 
findings with respect to the selection of a surrogate country. See 
Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 1.

Separate Rates

    In proceedings involving NME countries, the Department begins with 
a rebuttable presumption that all companies within the country are 
subject to government control and, thus, should be assigned a single 
antidumping duty deposit rate (``PRC-wide rate''). It is the 
Department's policy to assign all exporters of merchandise subject to 
review in an NME country this single rate unless an exporter can 
demonstrate that it is free of de jure (in law) and de facto (in fact) 
control over its export decisions, so as to be entitled to a separate 
rate.
    In the Preliminary Results, the Department found that the mandatory 
respondents and numerous companies which provided responses to the 
separate-rate application or separate-rate certification were eligible 
for a rate separate from the PRC-wide rate. See Preliminary Results, 72 
FR at 6208, 6210. For the final results, we have determined that 
additional companies qualify for separate-rate status. For a complete 
listing of all the companies that received a separate rate, see the 
Final Results Margins section, below. See also, Memorandum regarding 
``Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People's Republic of China: 
Separate Rates for Producers/Exporters that Submitted Separate Rate 
Certifications and Applications'' (``Final Separate-Rates Memo''), 
dated August 8, 2007.
    In the Preliminary Results, we did not grant separate-rate status 
for 14 companies. See Preliminary Results 72 FR at 6209, 6210. Of 
those, we stated that we would request additional information from six 
applicants after the Preliminary Results, whereupon we would reevaluate 
their eligibility for a separate rate for the final results. See 
Preliminary Results 72 FR at 6210. Also, three additional companies 
(i.e., Zhejiang Niannian Hong Industrial Co. Ltd. (``Nanaholy''); 
Triple J Enterprises Co. Ltd. (``Triple J''), Zhongshan Winny Furniture 
Ltd. (``Winny'')) filed post-preliminary submissions asking that the 
Department reconsider its preliminary decision to deny them separate-
rate status. See Final Separate-Rates Memo.
    Based on the information submitted in response to our post-
preliminary supplemental questionnaires, we find that Guangdong New 
Four Seas Furniture Manufacturing Ltd.; King Kei Furniture Factory/King 
Kei Trading Co., Ltd./Jin Ching Trading Co. Ltd.; and Top Art Furniture 
Factory/Sanxig Top Art Funiture/Ngai Kun Trading have provided 
sufficient information to establish an absence of government control 
and eligibility for separate-rate status. Therefore, the evidence 
placed on the record of this administrative review by these separate-
rate respondents demonstrates an absence of government control, both in 
law and in fact, with respect to each of the exporter's exports of the 
subject merchandise, in accordance with the criteria identified in 
Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Sparklers from 
the People's Republic of China, 56 FR 20588 (May 6, 1991), and Final 
Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Silicon Carbide from 
the People's Republic of China, 59 FR 22585 (May 2,1994). As a result, 
for the purposes of these final results, we have granted separate rate 
status to the above-named separate-rate applicants that shipped wooden 
bedroom furniture to the United States during the POR. Additionally, we 
have granted a separate rate to other separate-rate applicants.\15\ See 
Final Separate-Rates Memo.

    Furthermore, we continue to find that the following separate-rate 
applicants have not demonstrated an absence of government control over 
their export activities, both in law and in fact: Conghua J. L. George 
Timber & Co. Ltd. (``Conghua''); Zhongshan Youcheng Wooden Arts & 
Crafts Co., Ltd. (``ZY Wooden'') and Macau Youcheng Trading Co. (``MY 
Trading'') (collectively, ``ZY Wooden/MY Trading''); Kunwa Enterprise 
Company (``Kunwa''), Nanaholy; Triple J, Winny, Kong Fong Art Factory 
and Kong Fong Mao Iek Hong (``Kong Fong''), Putian Ou Dian Furniture 
Co., Ltd. (``Putian''), and Speedy International, Ltd. (``Speedy''). 
Therefore, we determine that Conghua, Kunwa, Nanaholy, Triple J, Winny, 
ZY Wooden/MY Trading, Kong Fong, Putian, and Speedy are part of the 
PRC-wide entity and, therefore, do not qualify for a separate rate and 
will be subject to PRC-wide rate. See Final Separate-Rates Memo.
    The margin we calculated in the Preliminary Results for these 
separate-rate companies was 62.94 percent. Because the rates of the 
selected mandatory respondents have changed since the Preliminary 
Results, we have recalculated the rate for Separate-Rate Applicants. 
The final rate is 35.38 percent. See Memorandum to the File from Eugene 
Degnan, ``Calculation of Separate Rate,'' dated August 8, 2007.

Affiliation

    In the Preliminary Results, we stated Fujian Lianfu Forestry Co. 
Ltd./Fujian Wonder Pacific Inc./Fuzhou Huan Mei Furniture Co., Ltd./
Jiangsu Dare Furniture Co., Ltd., collectively, (``Dare Group'') were 
affiliated pursuant to sections 771(33)(A), (E) and (F) of the Act and 
that these companies should be treated as a single entity for the 
purposes of the antidumping administrative review of wooden bedroom 
furniture from the PRC. See Preliminary Results, 72 FR at 6208. For the 
final results, we have made no changes to our findings with respect to 
Dare Group's affiliation.

Adverse Facts Available

    Sections 776(a)(1) and (2) of the Act provide that the Department 
shall apply ``facts otherwise available'' if necessary information is 
not on the record or an interested party or any other person (A) 
withholds information that has been requested, (B) fails to provide 
information within the deadlines established, or in the form and manner 
requested by the Department, subject to subsections (c)(1) and (e) of 
section 782, (C) significantly impedes a proceeding, or (D) provides 
information that cannot be verified as provided by section 782(i) of 
the Act.
    Where the Department determines that a response to a request for 
information does not comply with the request, section 782(d) of the Act 
provides that the Department will so inform the party submitting the 
response and will, to the extent practicable, provide that party the 
opportunity to remedy or explain the deficiency. If the party fails to 
remedy the deficiency within the applicable time limits and subject to 
section 782(e) of the Act, the Department may disregard all or part of 
the original and subsequent responses, as appropriate. Section 782(e) 
of the Act provides that the Department ``shall not decline to consider 
information that is submitted by an interested party and is necessary 
to the determination but does not meet all applicable requirements 
established by the administering authority'' if the information is 
timely, can be verified, is not so incomplete that it cannot be used, 
and if the interested party acted to the best of its ability in 
providing the information. Where all of these conditions are met, the 
statute requires the Department to use the information if it can do so 
without undue difficulties.
    Section 776(b) of the Act further provides that the Department may 
use an adverse inference in applying the facts otherwise available when 
a party has failed to cooperate by not acting to the best of its 
ability to comply with a request for information. Section 776(b) of the 
Act also authorizes the Department to use as AFA information derived 
from the petition, the final determination, a previous administrative 
review, or other information placed on the record.

Application of Facts Available

First Wood

    In the Preliminary Results, we determined pursuant to sections 
776(a)(1), 776(a)(2), and 776(b) of the Act to apply AFA to First Wood 
in the new shipper review because First Wood: withheld the sales and 
cost reconciliations as well as extensive factors of production 
(``FOP'') data requested by the Department; failed to provide the units 
of measure for its FOP consumption in a form or manner requested by the 
Department; reported its FOP consumption in units of measure in a 
manner that does not allow the Department to identify the actual 
consumption rates or calculate the value for the FOP consumed in the 
production of subject merchandise, thereby significantly impeding the 
proceeding, resulting in the sales and FOP data being unverifiable. See 
Preliminary Results, 72 FR at 6212-13. We also determined that First 
Wood did not act ``to the best of its ability,'' as required by the 
statute. See Preliminary Results, 72 FR at 6212-13. Thus, based on 
First Wood's actions, we preliminarily determined that it failed to 
cooperate to the best of its ability in responding to the Department's 
requests for information. Therefore, we preliminarily determined that, 
when selecting from among the facts otherwise available, an adverse 
inference is warranted for First Wood pursuant to section 776(b) of the 
Act. See Preliminary Results, 72 FR at 6212, 6213. For the final 
results, we have made no changes to our findings with respect to First 
Wood's total AFA determination. See Issues and Decision Memorandum at 
Comments 43 and 44.

Huanghouse

    In the Preliminary Results, we determined that because Huanghouse 
ceased participating in the new shipper review, and none of its 
submitted information could be verified, Huanghouse did not demonstrate 
its entitlement to a separate rate and was, therefore, subject to the 
PRC-wide rate. See Preliminary Results, 72 FR at 6212-13. For the final 
results, we made no changes to our findings with respect to 
Huanghouse's determination.

Kong Fong Art Factory and Kong Fong Mao Iek Hong

    In the Preliminary Results, we determined that because Kong Fong 
ceased participating in the administrative review and would not provide 
a response to the Department's supplemental questionnaire, Kong Fong 
did not demonstrate its entitlement to a separate rate and was, 
therefore, subject to the PRC-wide rate. See Preliminary Results, 72 FR 
at 6210-12. For the final results, we made no changes to our findings 
with respect to Huanghouse's determination.

Putian Ou Dian Furniture Co., Ltd.

    In the Preliminary Results, we determined that because Putian 
submitted a withdrawal of its request for the administrative review 
after the 90-day regulatory deadline (i.e., November 30, 2006), and 
stated that it would not provide a response to the Department's

[[Page 46962]]

supplemental questionnaire. Thus Putian stopped participating in this 
review, did not demonstrate its entitlement to a separate rate and was, 
therefore, subject to the PRC-wide rate. See Preliminary Results, 72 FR 
at 6211-12. For the final results, we made no changes to our findings 
with respect to Putian's determination.

Speedy International, Ltd.

    In the Preliminary Results, we determined that because Speedy 
International, Ltd. (``Speedy'') failed to support its claim that its 
owner was a citizen of Taiwan, and did not complete the sections of the 
separate rate application for NME owned entities, thus, Speedy did not 
demonstrate its entitlement to a separate rate and was, therefore, 
subject to the PRC-wide rate. See Preliminary Results, 72 FR at 6211-
12. For the final results, we have made no changes to our findings with 
respect to Speedy's determination.

Starcorp

    The Department finds that the information necessary to calculate an 
accurate and reliable margin is not available on the record with 
respect to Starcorp. See Issues and Decision Memo at Comment 63; and 
Starcorp AFA Memorandum. Specifically, Starcorp has significantly 
impeded the Department's ability to calculate accurate margins for a 
significant percentage of its U.S. sales as a direct result of its 
misreporting and withholding of information that would have served as 
the basis for the Department's analysis. Therefore, we find use of 
facts available appropriate pursuant to sections 776(a)(2)(A), (B) and 
(C) of the Act, and as discussed in extensive detail in the Starcorp 
AFA Memorandum. Despite having numerous opportunities to provide the 
Department with requested information with respect to merchandise sold 
but not produced during the POR, the facts on the record lead the 
Department to the conclusion that Starcorp did not act as a reasonable 
respondent by withholding certain information necessary to calculate an 
accurate margin (i.e., it failed to disclose the methodology it used to 
derive its proxy FOPs for merchandise sold but not produced during the 
POR (i.e., proxy FOPs) and failed to provide forthcoming responses in a 
timely manner to the Department's numerous direct questions regarding 
its reporting methodology (i.e., use of proxy FOPs and use of sales 
quantities instead of production quantities to weight certain FOPs 
within numerous CONNUMs)). See Starcorp AFA Memorandum and Comment 63 
of the Issues and Decision Memorandum. These failures significantly 
impeded the Department's ability to comprehend and analyze Starcorp's 
data adequately within the Department's statutory timeframe. As a 
result of Starcorp's repeated misreporting and failure to provide 
information that was responsive to the Department's requests, the 
Department's ability to calculate accurate margins for a significant 
portion of Starcorp's sales was compromised.
    Starcorp further impeded the Department's ability to calculate 
accurate margins as a direct result of its failure to provide, in the 
form and manner requested by the Department and within the Department's 
established deadlines, the information that would have served as the 
basis of the Department's analysis, pursuant to sections 776(a)(2)(B) 
and (C) of the Act. Specifically, and as discussed in great detail in 
the Starcorp AFA Memorandum, Starcorp did not provide plant-specific 
plant data until very late in the proceeding, and did not disclose that 
these data do not contain FOPs for all of the CONNUMs correlating to 
its U.S. sales (i.e., the plant-specific databases did not contain the 
requisite data for calculating normal values for all of Starcorp's U.S. 
sales and thus do not contain the data necessary to calculate a dumping 
margin for those sales). Despite having numerous opportunities to 
provide the plant-specific and weighted-average data in a timely 
manner, as evidenced by the Department's numerous supplemental 
questionnaires addressing deficiencies in Starcorp's responses, 
Starcorp did not do so. Thus, as explained in detail in the Starcorp 
AFA Memorandum, the facts on the record lead the Department to the 
conclusion that Starcorp failed to provide forthcoming responses in a 
timely manner to the Department's numerous direct requests, and this 
failure significantly impeded the Department's ability to comprehend 
and analyze Starcorp's data adequately within the Department's 
statutory time frame. As a result, the Department's ability to 
calculate accurate margins for any of Starcorp's sales was compromised.
    Further, the Department also found Starcorp's financial statements 
to be unreliable. See Comment 56 of the Issues and Decision Memorandum 
and the Starcorp AFA Memo. Because the Department finds that Starcorp's 
submitted information cannot be tied to reliable financial statements 
or a reliable financial recording system, the Department must conclude 
that any submitted data are also not reliable.
    Finally, there remain significant discrepancies between Starcorp's 
numerous data files and the narrative descriptions Starcorp provided 
purporting to explain those data files. For example, there are 
inconsistencies related to: which unique products were not sold during 
the POR and which FOPs were therefore based on proxy FOP data; 
Starcorp's reported production quantities for sets, notwithstanding 
Starcorp's repeated statements that it does not produce sets; and 
Starcorp's inclusion of the same product in the FOP buildups for more 
than one CONNUM.
    Based on the analysis above, for the final results, we applied 
facts available pursuant to sections 776(a)(2)(A), (B), and (C) of the 
Act with respect to Starcorp's sales. Furthermore, it is apparent from 
the facts on the record, i.e., Starcorp's repeated unresponsiveness to 
information requests, its repeated failure to provide requested data in 
a timely manner, its withholding of its methodology to determine the 
product-specific source of proxy FOP data, and the significant level of 
inconsistencies and contradictions in its data and narrative 
submissions (including information obtained at verification), that 
Starcorp did not act as a reasonable respondent because its failure to 
be responsive was unnecessary. See Starcorp AFA Memorandum. Thus, we 
find that Starcorp failed to cooperate by not acting to the best of its 
ability. For this reason, we find it appropriate that an adverse 
inference be applied when selecting from among the facts available in 
accordance with section 776(b) of the Act.
    As AFA we are applying a rate of 216.01 percent, the rate 
calculated for a respondent in the most recently completed new shipper 
reviews of wooden bedroom furniture from the PRC, covering the first 12 
months of this administrative review. See Final Results of the 2004-
2005 Semi-Annual New Shipper Reviews: Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the 
People's Republic of China, 71 FR 70739 (December 6, 2006) (``04-05 New 
Shipper Reviews''). This represents the highest rate from the history 
of this proceeding.

Application of Partial Facts Available

    Sections 776(a)(2)(A) and (B) of the Act provide for the use of 
facts available when an interested party withholds information that has 
been requested by the Department or when an interested party fails to 
provide the information requested in a timely manner and in the form 
required. Additionally, section 776(b) of the Act provides for the use 
of

[[Page 46963]]

AFA when an interested party has failed to cooperate by not acting to 
the best of its ability. We have concluded that the Dare Group did not 
cooperate to the best of its ability.

Dare Group

    Because the Dare Group did not provide complete information with 
respect to indirect and packing labor for certain CONNUMs, as requested 
in the Department's questionnaires, we preliminarily determined that 
the use of an adverse inference was warranted to value these FOPs. See 
Preliminary Results, 72 FR at 6214. For the final results, we have 
determined to continue to apply sections 776(a)(2)(A), (a)(2)(B), and 
(b) of the Act because the Dare Group did not provide us with the 
information we requested. Therefore, in accordance with sections 
776(a)(2) and (b) of the Act, we have applied partial AFA in 
calculating the Dare Group's margin. For each CONNUM for which zero 
labor hours were reported, we have applied the highest labor hour value 
for any CONNUM reported in the Dare Group's FOP database. See Issues 
and Decision Memorandum at Comment 38.

Corroboration

    Section 776(c) of the Act provides that, when the Department relies 
on secondary information rather than on information obtained in the 
course of an investigation or review, it shall, to the extent 
practicable, corroborate that information from independent sources that 
are reasonably at its disposal. Secondary information is information 
derived from the petition that gave rise to the investigation or 
review, the final determination concerning the subject merchandise, or 
any previous review under section 751 concerning the subject 
merchandise. See e.g., Statement of Administration Action accompanying 
the Uruguay Round Agreements Act, H.R. Rep. No. 103-316, (1994) (SAA) 
at 870. Corroborate means that the Department will satisfy itself that 
the secondary information to be used has probative value. To 
corroborate secondary information, the Department will, to the extent 
practicable, examine the reliability and relevance of the information 
to be used. See e.g., Tapered Roller Bearings and Parts Thereof, 
Finished and Unfinished from Japan, and Tapered Roller Bearings, Four 
Inches or Less in Outside Diameter, and Components Thereof, from Japan; 
Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews and 
Partial Termination of Administrative Reviews, 61 FR 57391, 57392 
(November 6, 1996) (unchanged in the final determination). Independent 
sources used to corroborate such evidence may include, for example, 
published price lists, official import statistics and customs data, and 
information obtained from interested parties during the particular 
investigation or review. See 19 CFR 351.308(d).
    The AFA rate that the Department is now using was determined in the 
recently published new shipper review. See 04-05 New Shipper Reviews 71 
FR at 70741. In that new shipper review, the Department calculated a 
company-specific rate of 216.01 percent, which was above the PRC-wide 
rate established in the less-than-fair-value investigation. Because 
this new rate is a company-specific calculated rate concerning subject 
merchandise, we have determined this rate to be reliable.
    With respect to the relevance aspect of corroboration, the 
Department will consider information reasonably at its disposal to 
determine whether a margin continues to have relevance. Where 
circumstances indicate that the selected margin is not appropriate as 
AFA, the Department will disregard the margin and determine an 
appropriate margin. For example, in Fresh Cut Flowers From Mexico: 
Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 61 FR 6812 
(February 22, 1996), the Department disregarded the highest margin in 
that case as adverse best information available (the predecessor to 
facts available), because the margin was based on another company's 
uncharacteristic business expense resulting in an unusually high 
margin. Similarly, the Department does not apply a margin that has been 
discredited. See D&L Supply Co. v. United States, 113 F.3d 1220, 1221 
(Fed. Cir. 1997) where the Court ruled that the Department will not use 
a margin that has been judicially invalidated. Nothing on the record of 
this review calls into question the relevance of the margin selected as 
AFA. Further, the selected margin is a company-specific calculated rate 
for another respondent for a period covering 12 months (i.e., June 24, 
2004, through June 30, 2005) of this 18-month administrative review. 
Moreover, this rate has not been invalidated judicially, and falls 
within the range of margins calculated for another respondent in this 
review. Therefore, it is appropriate to use the selected rate as AFA 
and we have determined the 216.01 percent rate to be relevant for use 
in this administrative review.
    As the adverse margin is both reliable and relevant, we determine 
that it has probative value. Accordingly, we determine that this rate 
meets the corroboration criteria established in section 776(c) that 
secondary information have probative value. As a result, the Department 
determines that the margin is corroborated for the purposes of this 
administrative review and may reasonably be applied to First Wood, 
Huanghouse, Kong Fong, Putian, Speedy, and Starcorp, and the PRC-wide 
entity as AFA.

The PRC-Wide Rate

    Because we begin with the presumption that all companies within an 
NME country are subject to government control and because only the 
companies listed under these ``Final Results Margins'' section, below, 
have overcome that presumption, we are applying a single antidumping 
rate (i.e., the PRC-wide rate) to all other exporters of subject 
merchandise from the PRC. Such companies did not demonstrate 
entitlement to a separate rate. See e.g., Notice of Final Determination 
of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Synthetic Indigo from the People's 
Republic of China, 65 FR 25706, 25707 (May 3, 2000). The PRC-wide rate 
applies to all entries of subject merchandise except for entries from 
the respondents that are listed in the ``Final Results Margins'' 
section, below (except as noted).
    The Department based the margin for the PRC-wide entity on adverse 
facts available. See Preliminary Results, 72 FR at 6212, 6214. Pursuant 
to section 776(a) of the Act, the Department found that because the 
PRC-wide entity failed to respond to the Department's questionnaires, 
withheld or failed to provide information in a timely manner or in the 
form or manner requested by the Department, submitted information that 
could not be verified, or otherwise impeded the process, it was 
appropriate to apply a dumping margin for the PRC-wide entity using 
facts otherwise available on the record. The Department further 
determined that an adverse inference was appropriate because the PRC-
wide entity failed to respond to requests for information and therefore 
failed to cooperate by not acting to the best of its ability. As AFA we 
are applying the highest calculated rate from the history of this 
proceeding, a rate calculated for a respondent in the most recently 
completed new shipper reviews of wooden bedroom furniture from the PRC, 
covering the first 12 months of this administrative review. See Wooden 
Bedroom Furniture from the People 's Republic of China: Final Results 
of the 2004-2005 Semi-Annual New Shipper Reviews, 71 FR 70739 (December 
6, 2006).

[[Page 46964]]

Final Results Margins

    We determine that the following percentage weighted-average margins 
exist for the POR:

                  Wooden Bedroom Furniture From the PRC

Assessment Rates

    The Department has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (``CBP'') shall assess, antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries. For customers/importers of respondents that did 
not report entered value, we calculated customer/importer-specific 
antidumping duty assessment amounts based on the ratio of the total 
amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales of 
subject merchandise to the total quantity of subject merchandise sold 
in those transactions. For customers/importers of respondents that 
reported entered value, we calculated customer-specific antidumping 
duty assessment amounts based on customer/importer-specific ad valorem 
rates in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). For the companies 
receiving a separate rate that were not selected for individual review 
(i.e., separate rate companies) we will calculate an assessment rate 
based on the weighted average of the cash deposit rates calculated for 
the companies

[[Page 46965]]

selected for individual review excluding any that are zero, de minimis, 
or based entirely on AFA pursuant to section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act. 
The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP within 
15 days after the date of publication of these final results of 
administrative and new shippers review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of these final results of this administrative review and 
new shippers for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication 
date, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the 
exporters listed above, the cash deposit rate will be the rates shown 
for those companies (except if the rate is de minimis, i.e., less than 
0.5 percent, no cash deposit will be required for that company); (2) 
for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not 
listed above that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will 
continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most recent 
period; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not 
been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate 
will be the PRC-wide rate of 216.01 percent; and (4) for all non-PRC 
exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own 
rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC 
exporters that supplied that non-PRC exporter. These deposit 
requirements shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notification of Interested Parties

    This notice also serves as a final 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 the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (``APOs'') of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under the APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), 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.

Disclosure

    We will disclose the calculations performed within five days of the 
date of publication of this notice to parties in this proceeding in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).
    We are issuing and publishing this determination and notice in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

     Dated: August 15, 2007.
David M. Spooner,
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
