E7–17517 Filed 9–4–07; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3510–DS–S DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE International Trade Administration A–570–890 Wooden Bedroom Furniture From The People’s Republic of China: Notice of Partial Rescission of New Shipper Review Import Administration, International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce. SUMMARY: On May 29, 2007, Golden Well International (HK) Ltd. (‘‘Golden Well’’) submitted a letter to the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) stating that its sale had been cancelled and withdrawing its request for the new shipper review. Accordingly, we are rescinding the new shipper review with respect to Golden Well. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: rfrederick on PROD1PC67 with NOTICES Background On January 24, 2007, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) received a timely request for a new shipper review of the antidumping order on wooden bedroom furniture (‘‘WBF’’) from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) from Golden Well. On March 7, 2007, the Department initiated a new shipper review of shipments of WBF from the PRC exported by Golden Well during the POR. See Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of New Shipper Reviews, 72 FR 10158 (March 7, 2007). On May 29, 2007, Golden Well withdrew its request for a new shipper review. Rescission of New Shipper Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(f)(1), the Department may rescind a new shipper review if the party that requested the review withdraws its request for review within 60 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. Although Golden Well withdrew its request after the 60day deadline, we find it reasonable to allow it to withdraw its request because we have not yet committed significant resources to this proceeding. Further, no party has opposed Golden Well’s request to withdraw. Therefore, we are rescinding the 2006 new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on wooden bedroom furniture from the VerDate Aug<31>2005 13:51 Sep 04, 2007 Jkt 211001 PRC with respect to Golden Well in accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(f)(1). See Freshwater Crawfish Tail Meat from the People’s Republic of China; Notice of Rescission of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review, 72 FR 43591 (August 6, 2007). Notification We will issue assessment instructions after 15 days of the date of the publication of this notice and, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c), we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess antidumping duties at the cash deposit rate in effect at the time of entry for all shipments of WBF from the PRC produced and exported by Golden Well and entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption during the period January 1, 2006, through December 31, 2006. This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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 assumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. This notice is published in accordance with section 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4) of the Department’s regulations. Dated: August 27, 2007.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 BACKGROUND: Title V of the Trade and Development Act of 2000 (the Act) created two tariff rate quotas (TRQs), providing for temporary reductions in the import duties on limited quantities of two categories of worsted wool fabrics suitable for use in making suits, suittype jackets, or trousers: (1) For worsted wool fabric with average fiber diameters greater than 18.5 microns (Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS) heading 9902.51.11); and (2) for worsted wool fabric with average fiber diameters of 18.5 microns or less (HTS heading 9902.51.12). On August 6, 2002, President Bush signed into law the Trade Act of 2002, which includes several amendments to Title V of the Act. On December 3, 2004, the Act was further amended pursuant to the Miscellaneous Trade Act of 2004, Public Law 108-429. The 2004 amendment included authority for the Department to allocate a TRQ for new HTS category, HTS 9902.51.16. This HTS category refers to worsted wool fabric with average fiber diameter of 18.5 microns or less. The amendment provided that HTS 9902.51.16 is for the benefit of persons (including firms, corporations, or other legal entities) who weave such worsted wool fabric in the United States that is suitable for making men’s and boys’ suits. The TRQ for HTS 9902.51.16 provided for temporary reductions in the import duties on 2,000,000 square meters annually for 2005 and 2006. The amendment requires that the TRQ be allocated to persons who weave worsted wool fabric with average fiber diameter of 18.5 microns or less, which is suitable for use in making men’s and boys’ suits, in the United States. On August 17, 2006, the Act was further amended pursuant to the Pension Protection Act of 2006, Public Law 109-280, which extended the TRQ for HTS 9902.51.16 through 2009. On October 24, 2005, the Department adopted final regulations establishing procedures for allocating the TRQ. See 70 FR 61363; 19 CFR 335. In order to be eligible for an allocation, an applicant must submit an application on the form provided at http:// web.ita.doc.gov/tacgi/wooltrq.nsf/ TRQApp/fabric to the address listed above by 5 p.m. on October 5, 2007 in compliance with the requirements of 15 CFR 335. Any business confidential information that is marked business confidential will be kept confidential and protected from disclosure to the full extent permitted by law. E:\FR\FM\05SEN1.SGM 05SEN1
