E:\FR\FM\07NON1.SGM 07NON1 62836 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 215 / Wednesday, November 7, 2007 / Notices Ministerial Errors A ministerial error is defined in section 751(h) of the Act and further clarified in 19 CFR 351.224(f) as ‘‘an error in addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical error resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any other similar type of unintentional error which the Secretary considers ministerial.’’ After analyzing all interested parties’ comments, we have determined, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(e), that ministerial errors existed in certain calculations for Dare Group and Shanghai Aosen in the Final Results. Correction of these errors results in a change to Dare Group’s and Shanghai Aosen’s final antidumping duty margins. Additionally, the rate change for Dare Group and Shanghai Aosen also affects the cash deposit rates for the companies subject to the administrative review that receive a separate rate. The rate for the PRC-wide entity remains unchanged. Further, we determined that a certain ministerial error existed with respect to our determination not to grant Kunwa a separate rate and, for these amended final results, we have determined that Kunwa has demonstrated its eligibility for a separate rate. For a detailed discussion of these ministerial errors, as well as the Department’s analysis, see The Memorandum: Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People’s Republic of China: Analysis of Ministerial Error Allegations, dated November 5, 2007 (‘‘Ministerial Error Allegation Memorandum’’). The Ministerial Error Allegation Memorandum is on file in the Central Records Unit, room B–099 in the main Department building. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e), we are amending the Final Results of the administrative review of wooden bedroom furniture from the PRC. The revised weighted-average dumping margins are detailed below. For company-specific calculations, see ‘‘Analysis Memorandum for the Amended Final Results for Dare Group,’’ dated November 5, 2007 and ‘‘Analysis Memorandum for the Amended Final Results for Shanghai Aosen,’’ dated November 5, 2007.

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 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 appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the second amended final results of these new shipper and administrative reviews. pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of these second amended 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, a zero cash deposit will be required for VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:14 Nov 06, 2007 Jkt 214001 that company); (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and nonPRC 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 PRCwide 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. These second amended final results are published in accordance with sections 751(h) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

description, regardless of tariff classification. Although the HTSUS 
subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, our 
written description of the scope of this proceeding is dispositive.

Ministerial Errors

    A ministerial error is defined in section 751(h) of the Act and 
further clarified in 19 CFR 351.224(f) as ``an error in addition, 
subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical error resulting 
from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any other 
similar type of unintentional error which the Secretary considers 
ministerial.''
    After analyzing all interested parties' comments, we have 
determined, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(e), that ministerial 
errors existed in certain calculations for Dare Group and Shanghai 
Aosen in the Final Results. Correction of these errors results in a 
change to Dare Group's and Shanghai Aosen's final antidumping duty 
margins. Additionally, the rate change for Dare Group and Shanghai 
Aosen also affects the cash deposit rates for the companies subject to 
the administrative review that receive a separate rate. The rate for 
the PRC-wide entity remains unchanged. Further, we determined that a 
certain ministerial error existed with respect to our determination not 
to grant Kunwa a separate rate and, for these amended final results, we 
have determined that Kunwa has demonstrated its eligibility for a 
separate rate. For a detailed discussion of these ministerial errors, 
as well as the Department's analysis, see The Memorandum: Wooden 
Bedroom Furniture from the People's Republic of China: Analysis of 
Ministerial Error Allegations, dated November 5, 2007 (``Ministerial 
Error Allegation Memorandum''). The Ministerial Error Allegation 
Memorandum is on file in the Central Records Unit, room B-099 in the 
main Department building.
    Therefore, in accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.224(e), we are amending the Final Results of the administrative 
review of wooden bedroom furniture from the PRC. The revised weighted-
average dumping margins are detailed below. For company-specific 
calculations, see ``Analysis Memorandum for the Amended Final Results 
for Dare Group,'' dated November 5, 2007 and ``Analysis Memorandum for 
the Amended Final Results for Shanghai Aosen,'' dated November 5, 2007. 
The revised final weighted-average dumping margins are as follows:

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 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 appropriate 
assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after the date of 
publication of the second amended final results of these new shipper 
and administrative reviews.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of these second amended 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, a zero 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.
    These second amended final results are published in accordance with 
sections 751(h) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: November 5, 2007.
Stephen J. Claeys,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
