SUMMARY: On August 17, 2009 the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) published the final results of the antidumping duty administrative review and new shipper reviews (‘‘NSRs’’) of wooden bedroom furniture from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). See Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and New Shipper Reviews, 74 FR 41374 (August 17, 2009) (‘‘Final Results’’), and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum. The period of review is January 1, 2007, through December 31, 2007. We are amending our Final VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:20 Oct 28, 2009 Jkt 220001 Results to correct ministerial errors made in the calculation of the administrative and new shipper reviews pursuant to section 751(h) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’). These corrections will also affect the dumping margins for the companies in the administrative review to which a separate rate applies. DATES: Effective Date: October 29, 2009. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sergio Balbontin or Erin Begnal, AD/ CVD Operations, Office 8, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–6478 and (202) 482–1442, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On August 14, 2009, Bon Ten Furniture Co., Ltd. (‘‘Bon Ten’’) submitted ministerial error allegations with respect to the Final Results of the January 1, 2007, through December 31, 2007, administrative review. On August 19, 2009, the American Furniture Manufacturers Committee for Legal Trade and Vaughan-Basset Furniture Company, Inc. submitted rebuttal comments with respect to Bon Ten’s ministerial error allegations. On August 19, 2009, Yihua Timber Industry Co., Ltd (‘‘Yihua Timber’’) submitted ministerial error allegations with respect to the Final Results of the January 1, 2007, through December 31, 2007, administrative review. No interested party submitted comments with respect to Yihua Timber’s ministerial error allegations. 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 Yihua Timber in the Final Results. Correction of these errors results in a change to Yihua Timber’s final antidumping duty margin. These corrections will also affect the dumping margins for the other companies in the review to which a separate rate applies. The dumping margins for Orient PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 International Shanghai Foreign Trade Co., Ltd. and the PRC-wide entity remain unchanged. Because several of the ministerial errors pertain to the calculation of the surrogate financial ratios used for the concurrent NSRs, we also corrected the calculations of the new shippers, Golden Well International (HK), Ltd./Zhangzhou XYM Furniture Product Co., Ltd. and Dongguan Sunshine Furniture Co., Ltd./ Dongguan Sunshine Furniture Co., Ltd., as well. In addition, we are continuing to find that Bon Ten is part of the PRCwide entity. However, we are clarifying that our determination concerning Bon Ten covers the period August 1, 2007, through December 31, 2007, not the entire period of review. We also made a correction to Yihua Timber’s assessment rates due to an error we found in reviewing the record. For a detailed discussion of these ministerial errors, as well as the Department’s analysis, see Ministerial Error Memorandum for the Final Results of the 2007 Administrative and New Shipper Reviews of Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People’s Republic of China, dated October 7, 2009 (‘‘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 Final Results of the administrative and new shipper reviews of wooden bedroom furniture from the PRC. The revised weighted-average dumping margins are detailed below. For Yihua Timber-specific calculations, see ‘‘Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People’s Republic of China— Analysis of the Amended Final Results Margin Calculation for Guangdong Yihua Timber Industry Co., Ltd.,’’ dated concurrently with this notice.

Where appropriate, we calculated an ad valorem rate for each importer (or customer) by dividing the total dumping margins for reviewed sales to that party by the total entered values associated with those transactions. For dutyassessment rates calculated on this basis, we will direct CBP to assess the resulting ad valorem rate against the entered customs values for the subject merchandise.

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

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: On August 17, 2009 the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
published the final results of the antidumping duty administrative 
review and new shipper reviews (``NSRs'') of wooden bedroom furniture 
from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). See Wooden Bedroom 
Furniture from the People's Republic of China: Final Results of 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and New Shipper Reviews, 74 FR 
41374 (August 17, 2009) (``Final Results''), and accompanying Issues 
and Decision Memorandum. The period of review is January 1, 2007, 
through December 31, 2007. We are amending our Final Results to correct 
ministerial errors made in the calculation of the administrative and 
new shipper reviews pursuant to section 751(h) of the Tariff Act of 
1930, as amended (``the Act''). These corrections will also affect the 
dumping margins for the companies in the administrative review to which 
a separate rate applies.

DATES: Effective Date: October 29, 2009.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sergio Balbontin or Erin Begnal, AD/
CVD Operations, Office 8, Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and 
Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-
6478 and (202) 482-1442, respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On August 14, 2009, Bon Ten Furniture Co., Ltd. (``Bon Ten'') 
submitted ministerial error allegations with respect to the Final 
Results of the January 1, 2007, through December 31, 2007, 
administrative review. On August 19, 2009, the American Furniture 
Manufacturers Committee for Legal Trade and Vaughan-Basset Furniture 
Company, Inc. submitted rebuttal comments with respect to Bon Ten's 
ministerial error allegations. On August 19, 2009, Yihua Timber 
Industry Co., Ltd (``Yihua Timber'') submitted ministerial error 
allegations with respect to the Final Results of the January 1, 2007, 
through December 31, 2007, administrative review. No interested party 
submitted comments with respect to Yihua Timber's ministerial error 
allegations.

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 Yihua Timber in the Final 
Results. Correction of these errors results in a change to Yihua 
Timber's final antidumping duty margin. These corrections will also 
affect the dumping margins for the other companies in the review to 
which a separate rate applies. The dumping margins for Orient 
International Shanghai Foreign Trade Co., Ltd. and the PRC-wide entity 
remain unchanged. Because several of the ministerial errors pertain to 
the calculation of the surrogate financial ratios used for the 
concurrent NSRs, we also corrected the calculations of the new 
shippers, Golden Well International (HK), Ltd./Zhangzhou XYM Furniture 
Product Co., Ltd. and Dongguan Sunshine Furniture Co., Ltd./Dongguan 
Sunshine Furniture Co., Ltd., as well. In addition, we are continuing 
to find that Bon Ten is part of the PRC-wide entity. However, we are 
clarifying that our determination concerning Bon Ten covers the period 
August 1, 2007, through December 31, 2007, not the entire period of 
review. We also made a correction to Yihua Timber's assessment rates 
due to an error we found in reviewing the record. For a detailed 
discussion of these ministerial errors, as well as the Department's 
analysis, see Ministerial Error Memorandum for the Final Results of the 
2007 Administrative and New Shipper Reviews of Wooden Bedroom Furniture 
from the People's Republic of China, dated October 7, 2009 
(``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 Final Results of the administrative and 
new shipper reviews of wooden bedroom furniture from the PRC. The 
revised weighted-average dumping margins are detailed below. For Yihua 
Timber-specific calculations, see ``Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review: Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People's Republic of China--
Analysis of the Amended Final Results Margin Calculation for Guangdong 
Yihua Timber Industry Co., Ltd.,'' dated concurrently with this notice. 
For the amended calculations for the new shippers, see ``Antidumping 
Duty New Shipper Review: Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People's 
Republic of China--Analysis of the Amended Final Results Margin 
Calculation for Golden Well International (HK), Ltd.,'' and 
``Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review: Wooden Bedroom Furniture from 
the People's Republic of China--Analysis of the Amended Final Results 
Margin Calculation for Dongguan Sunshine Furniture Co., Ltd.,'' dated 
concurrently with this notice. Listed below are the revised weighted-
average dumping margins resulting from these amended final results:

Disclosure

    We will disclose the calculations performed for these amended 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 of subject merchandise in accordance with the final 
results of this review. For assessment purposes, we calculated 
exporter/importer- (or customer) -specific assessment rates for 
merchandise subject to this review. Where appropriate, we calculated an 
ad valorem rate for each importer (or customer) by dividing the total 
dumping margins for reviewed sales to that party by the total entered 
values associated with those transactions. For duty-assessment rates 
calculated on this basis, we will direct CBP to assess the resulting ad 
valorem rate against the entered customs values for the subject 
merchandise. Where appropriate, we calculated a per-unit rate for each 
importer (or customer) by dividing the total dumping margins for 
reviewed sales to that party by the total sales quantity associated 
with those transactions. For duty-assessment rates calculated on this 
basis, we will direct CBP to assess the resulting per-unit rate against 
the entered quantity of the subject merchandise. Where an importer- (or 
customer) -specific assessment rate is de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 
percent), the Department will instruct CBP to assess that importer (or 
customer's) entries of subject merchandise without regard to 
antidumping duties. The Department intends to issue appropriate 
assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of 
the amended final results of these reviews.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective 
retroactively on any entries made on or after August 17, 2009, 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, 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 rate shown for this company (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: October 22, 2009.
