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 the Dare Group and Teamway in the First Amended Final Results. Correction of these errors results in a change to the Dare Group’s and Teamway’s final antidumping duty margins. Additionally, the rate change for the Dare Group and Teamway also affects the dumping margins for the other companies subject to the administrative review that receive a separate rate. The dumping margin for the PRC–wide entity remains unchanged. For a detailed discussion of these ministerial errors, as well as the Department’s analysis, see the Ministerial Error Memo. The Ministerial Error Memo is on file in the Central Records Unit, room 1117 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 First Amended 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 Second Amended Final Results for the Dare Group,’’ dated March 20, 2009, and ‘‘Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People’s Republic of China: Analysis of the Second Amended Final Results Margin Calculation for Teamway Furniture (Dong Guan) Ltd. and Brittomart Incorporated,’’ dated March 20, 2009.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This order covers all wooden bedroom furniture meeting the above 
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 the Dare Group and Teamway 
in the First Amended Final Results. Correction of these errors results 
in a change to the Dare Group's and Teamway's final antidumping duty 
margins. Additionally, the rate change for the Dare Group and Teamway 
also affects the dumping margins for the other companies subject to the 
administrative review that receive a separate rate. The dumping margin 
for the PRC-wide entity remains unchanged. For a detailed discussion of 
these ministerial errors, as well as the Department's analysis, see the 
Ministerial Error Memo. The Ministerial Error Memo is on file in the 
Central Records Unit, room 1117 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 First Amended 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 Second 
Amended Final Results for the Dare Group,'' dated March 20, 2009, and 
``Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Wooden Bedroom Furniture from 
the People's Republic of China: Analysis of the Second Amended Final 
Results Margin Calculation for Teamway Furniture (Dong Guan) Ltd. and 
Brittomart Incorporated,'' dated March 20, 2009. Listed below are the 
revised weighted-average dumping margins resulting from these amended 
final results:

  dumping margin is unaffected by these second amended final results of
  the administrative review.
\17\ The PRC-Wide Rate is unaffected by these second amended final
  results of the administrative review.

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 for these final results 
within five days of the date of publication of this notice to 
interested parties in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment Rate

    The Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (``CBP'') shall assess, antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries based on the second amended final results. For 
details on the assessment of antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries, see Final Results.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements, pursuant to 751(a)(2)(C) 
of the Act, will be effective retroactively on any entries made on or 
after August 20, 2008, the date of publication of the Final Results, 
for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date: (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 amended final results are published in accordance with 
sections 751(h) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: March 20, 2009.

Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Operations.
