751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). The Department 
conducted an expedited (120-day) sunset review of this antidumping duty

EFFECTIVE DATE: November 3, 2009.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On July 1, 2009, the Department initiated a sunset review of the 
antidumping duty order on ironing tables from the PRC pursuant to 
section 751(c) of the Act. See Initiation of Five-year (Sunset) 
Reviews, 74 FR 31412 (July 1, 2009). The Department received a notice 
of intent to participate from one domestic interested party, Home 
Products International (HPI), within the deadline specified in 19 CFR 
351.218(d)(1)(i) of the Department's regulations. HPI claimed 
interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act as a 
domestic producer of the domestic like product. We received a complete 
substantive response from HPI within the 30-day deadline specified in 
19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i).
    The Department also received a substantive response from one 
respondent party, Since Hardware (Guangzhou) Co., Ltd. (Since Hardware) 
within the 30-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). On 
August 5, 2009 HPI submitted rebuttal comments to Since Hardware's 
substantive response. On August 19, 2009 the Department determined 
Since Hardware's substantive response to be inadequate because it 
failed to meet certain requirements in 19 CFR 351.218(c)(1)(ii)(A) and 
(d)(3)(iii)(E). For a more detailed discussion of the Department's 
determination regarding Since Hardware's substantive response, please 
see the Memorandum to the File, ``Adequacy Determination of 
Respondent's Substantive Comments: Sunset Review of the Antidumping 
Duty Order on Floor-Standing Metal-Top Ironing Tables and Parts Thereof 
from the People's Republic of China (PRC)'' dated August 19, 2009. As a 
result of the foregoing, the Department conducted an expedited (120-
day) sunset review of this order pursuant to section 751(C)(3)(B) of 
the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(c)(2).

Scope of the Order

    For purposes of the order, the product covered consists of floor-
standing, metal-top ironing tables, assembled or unassembled, complete 
or incomplete, and certain parts thereof. The subject tables are 
designed and used principally for the hand ironing or pressing of 
garments or other articles of fabric. The subject tables have full-
height leg assemblies that support the ironing surface at an 
appropriate (often adjustable) height above the floor. The subject 
tables are produced in a variety of leg finishes, such as painted, 
plated, or matte, and they are available with

[[Page 56795]]

various features, including iron rests, linen racks, and others. The 
subject ironing tables may be sold with or without a pad and/or cover. 
All types and configurations of floor-standing, metal-top ironing 
tables are covered by this order.
    Furthermore, the order specifically covers imports of ironing 
tables, assembled or unassembled, complete or incomplete, and certain 
parts thereof. For purposes of this order, the term ``unassembled'' 
ironing table means a product requiring the attachment of the leg 
assembly to the top or the attachment of an included feature such as an 
iron rest or linen rack. The term ``complete''' ironing table means a 
product sold as a ready-to-use ensemble consisting of the metal-top 
table and a pad and cover, with or without additional features, e.g., 
iron rest or linen rack. The term ``incomplete'' ironing table means 
product shipped or sold as a ``bare board'' i.e., a metal-top table 
only, without the pad and cover, with or without additional features, 
e.g. iron rest or linen rack. The major parts or components of ironing 
tables that are intended to be covered by the order under the term 
``certain parts thereof' consist of the metal top component 
(with or without assembled supports and slides) and/or the leg 
components, whether or not attached together as a leg assembly. This 
order covers separately shipped metal top components and leg 
components, without regard to whether the respective quantities would 
yield an exact quantity of assembled ironing tables.
    Ironing tables without legs (such as models that mount on walls or 
over doors) are not floor-standing and are specifically excluded. 
Additionally, tabletop or countertop models with short legs that do not 
exceed 12 inches in length (and which may or may not collapse or 
retract) are specifically excluded.
    The subject ironing tables are currently classifiable under HTSUS 
subheading 9403.20.0011. The subject metal top and leg components are 
classified under HTSUS subheading 9403.90.8040. Although the HTS 
subheadings are provided for convenience and Customs purposes, the 
written description of the scope remains dispositive.

Analysis of Comments Received

Decision Memorandum'' from Richard Weible, Director Office 7 to John M. 
Andersen, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for AD/CVD Operations, 
Import Administration, dated October 27, 2009 (Decision Memorandum), 
which is hereby adopted by this notice. The issues discussed in the 
Decision Memorandum include the likelihood of continuation or 
recurrence of dumping and the magnitude of the margin likely to prevail 
if the order was revoked. Parties can find a complete discussion of all 
issues raised in this sunset review and the corresponding 
recommendations in this public memorandum, which is on file in room

recurrence of dumping at the following percentage weighted-average 
margins:
