Background The antidumping duty order on certain frozen fish fillets from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (‘‘Vietnam’’) was published in the Federal Register on August 12, 2003. See Notice of Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Frozen Fish Fillets from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, 68 FR 47909 (August 12, 2003). On February 6, 2009, we received a timely request for a new shipper review from NTSF Seafoods Joint Stock Company (‘‘NTSF’’) in accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(c) and 351.214(d)(2). On March 24, 2009, the Department issued a notice of initiation of new shipper review of certain frozen fish fillets from Vietnam covering the period of August 1, 2008, - January 31, 2009. See Certain Frozen Fish Fillets from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Initiation of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review, 74 FR 57058, (March 27, 2009). The preliminary results are currently due no later than September 20, 2009. jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES Statutory Time Limits Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the ‘‘Act’’), provides that the Department will issue the preliminary results of a new shipper review of an antidumping duty order within 180 days after the day on which the review was initiated. See also 19 CFR 351.214 (i)(1). The Act further provides that the Department may extend that 180–day period to 300 days if it determines that the case is extraordinarily complicated. See also 19 CFR 351.214 (i)(2). VerDate Nov<24>2008 18:52 Sep 24, 2009 Jkt 217001 48905 Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results The Department determines that this new shipper review involves extraordinarily complicated methodological issues such as the examination of importer information and the evaluation of the bona fide nature of NTSF’s sales. In addition, the Department needs additional time to evaluate the affiliations amongst NTSF and other entities. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2), the Department is extending the time limit for these preliminary results by 120 days, until no later than January 18, 2010. The final results continue to be due 90 days after the publication of the preliminary results. We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) and 777(i) of the Act.

Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, our written description of the scope of this proceeding is dispositive. New Shipper Status No party has contested the bona fide nature of Fangjia’s sale(s) during the POR. Therefore, for these final results we find, as in the Preliminary Results, that the new shipper sale made by Fangjia was made on a bona fide basis. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on our analysis of information on the record of the instant NSR and because we did not receive comments from the interested parties, we have not made changes to the Preliminary Results margin calculations. Surrogate Country Since the Preliminary Results, no additional information has been placed on the record of this segment of the proceeding and no interested party has commented on the selection of the Philippines as the surrogate country. Therefore, we continue to determine that the Philippines is the appropriate surrogate country for the final results of this NSR. Separate Rates The Department found in the Preliminary Results that Fangjia demonstrated a lack of de jure and de facto government control with respect to its export activities, and preliminarily determined that it was eligible for a the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review and Determination to Revoke Order in Part, 74 FR 8506 (February 25, 2009). Further, as determined in the scope ruling memorandum ‘‘Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People’s Republic of China: Scope Ruling on a White Toy Box,’’ dated July 6, 2009, the dimensional ranges used to identify the toy boxes that are excluded from the wooden bedroom furniture order apply to the box itself rather than the lid.

No information has been placed on the record of this segment of the proceeding since the Preliminary Results to contradict our preliminary separate–rate determination. Therefore, for the final results, we continue to determine that Fangjia is eligible for a separate rate. Final Results of the New Shipper Review The Department has determined that the following final dumping margin exists for the period January 1, 2008, through June 30, 2008: WOODEN BEDROOM FURNITURE FROM THE PRC Exporter/Producer Weighted–Average Margin (Percent) Shanghai Fangjia Industry Co., Ltd./Jiangsu Danyang Brilliant Furniture Co., Ltd. .......... 0.00 jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES Assessment The Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For importers/customers of the respondent where the respondent did not report entered values, we have calculated importer/customer–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 importers/customers of the respondent where the respondent reported entered values, we have calculated an ad valorem rate for that importer/customer by dividing the total amount of antidumping duties calculated in the examined sales of subject merchandise by the total entered value of those transactions. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final results of NSR. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of these final results of NSR 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 exporter/producer combination listed above, the cash deposit rate will be the rates shown for these companies; VerDate Nov<24>2008 18:52 Sep 24, 2009 Jkt 217001 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 or combination 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 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). We are issuing and publishing these final results and notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(2)(B), 751(a)(2)(C), and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5).

of wood products (as defined above) that are not otherwise 
specifically named in this scope (i.e., wooden headboards for beds, 
wooden footboards for beds, wooden side rails for beds, and wooden

playthings. See Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People's Republic 
of China: Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review and 
Determination to Revoke Order in Part, 74 FR 8506 (February 25, 
2009). Further, as determined in the scope ruling memorandum 
``Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People's Republic of China: 
Scope Ruling on a White Toy Box,'' dated July 6, 2009, the 
dimensional ranges used to identify the toy boxes that are excluded 
from the wooden bedroom furniture order apply to the box itself 
rather than the lid.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Imports of subject merchandise are classified under subheading 
9403.50.9040 of the HTSUS as ``wooden . . . beds'' and under subheading 
9403.50.9080 of the HTSUS as ``other . . . wooden furniture of a kind 
used in the bedroom.'' In addition, wooden headboards for beds, wooden 
footboards for beds, wooden side rails for beds, and wooden canopies 
for beds may also be entered under subheading 9403.50.9040 of the HTSUS 
as ``parts of wood'' and framed glass mirrors may also be entered under 
subheading 7009.92.5000 of the HTSUS as ``glass mirrors . . . framed.'' 
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.

New Shipper Status

    No party has contested the bona fide nature of Fangjia's sale(s) 
during the POR. Therefore, for these final results we find, as in the 
Preliminary Results, that the new shipper sale made by Fangjia was made 
on a bona fide basis.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our analysis of information on the record of the instant 
NSR and because we did not receive comments from the interested 
parties, we have not made changes to the Preliminary Results margin 
calculations.

Surrogate Country

    Since the Preliminary Results, no additional information has been 
placed on the record of this segment of the proceeding and no 
interested party has commented on the selection of the Philippines as 
the surrogate country. Therefore, we continue to determine that the 
Philippines is the appropriate surrogate country for the final results 
of this NSR.

Separate Rates

    The Department found in the Preliminary Results that Fangjia 
demonstrated a lack of de jure and de facto government control with 
respect to its export activities, and preliminarily determined that it 
was eligible for a

[[Page 48907]]

separate rate. See Preliminary Results, at 74 FR at 31247. No 
information has been placed on the record of this segment of the 
proceeding since the Preliminary Results to contradict our preliminary 
separate-rate determination. Therefore, for the final results, we 
continue to determine that Fangjia is eligible for a separate rate.

Final Results of the New Shipper Review

    The Department has determined that the following final dumping 
margin exists for the period January 1, 2008, through June 30, 2008:

Assessment

    The Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (``CBP'') shall assess, antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries. For importers/customers of the respondent where 
the respondent did not report entered values, we have calculated 
importer/customer-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 importers/customers of the 
respondent where the respondent reported entered values, we have 
calculated an ad valorem rate for that importer/customer by dividing 
the total amount of antidumping duties calculated in the examined sales 
of subject merchandise by the total entered value of those 
transactions. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions 
to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final results of 
NSR.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of these final results of NSR 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 exporter/producer 
combination listed above, the cash deposit rate will be the rates shown 
for these companies; 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 or 
combination 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 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).
    We are issuing and publishing these final results and notice in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(2)(B), 751(a)(2)(C), and 777(i)(1) of 
the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5).
