Floor-Standing, Metal-Top Ironing Tables and Certain Parts Thereof From the People's Republic of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 3201-3203 [2010-1079]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 12 / Wednesday, January 20, 2010 / Notices panel, of which 42,032 households were interviewed. We estimate that each household contains 2.1 people, yielding 88,267 person-level interviews in Wave 1 and subsequent waves. Interviews take 30 minutes on average. Three waves will occur in the 2008 SIPP Panel during FY 2010. The total annual burden for 2008 Panel SIPP interviews would be 132,400 hours in FY 2010. The topical modules for the 2008 Panel Wave 7 collect information about: • Assets, Liabilities, and Eligibility; • Medical Expenses and Utilization of Health Care; • Work-Related Expenses and Child Support Paid. Wave 7 interviews will be conducted from September 1, 2010 through December 31, 2010. A 10-minute reinterview of 3,100 people is conducted at each wave to ensure accuracy of responses. Reinterviews require an additional 1,553 burden hours in FY 2010. II. Method of Collection The SIPP is designed as a continuing series of national panels of interviewed households that are introduced every few years with each panel having durations of 1 to 4 years. All household members 15 years old or over are interviewed using regular proxyrespondent rules. During the 2008 panel, respondents are interviewed a total of 13 times (13 waves) at 4-month intervals making the SIPP a longitudinal survey. Sample people (all household members present at the time of the first interview) who move within the country and reasonably close to a SIPP primary sampling unit will be followed and interviewed at their new address. Individuals 15 years old or over who enter the household after Wave 1 will be interviewed; however, if these individuals move, they are not followed unless they happen to move along with a Wave 1 sample individual. pwalker on DSK8KYBLC1PROD with NOTICES III.

SUMMARY: On September 8, 2009, the U.S. Department of Commerce (the Department) published the preliminary results of the August 1, 2007 through July 31, 2008 administrative review of the antidumping duty order on floorstanding, metal-top ironing tables from the People’s Republic of China (PRC). See Floor-Standing, Metal-Top Ironing Tables and Certain Parts Thereof From the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 74 FR 46083 (September 8, 2008) (Preliminary Results).

We invited interested parties to comment on the Preliminary Results. Based on our analysis of the comments received, we have made no changes to the findings presented in our Preliminary Results. The weighted average dumping margin is listed below in the section entitled ‘‘Final Results of Review.’’ DATES: Effective Date: January 20, 2010. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Michael J. Heaney or Robert James, AD/ CVD Operations, Office 7, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–4475 or (202) 482– 0649, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background We published in the Federal Register the preliminary results of this administrative review on September 8, 2009. See Preliminary Results. Following the Preliminary Results, on October 8, 2009, the Department received case briefs from Foshan Shunde and from Polder, Inc., an importer of the subject merchandise. On October 13, 2009, Home Products International, Inc., the Petitioner in this proceeding, submitted a rebuttal brief. 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 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 review. Furthermore, the order specifically covers imports of ironing tables, assembled or unassembled, complete or incomplete, and certain parts thereof. For purposes of the 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 E:\FR\FM\20JAN1.SGM 20JAN1 3202 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 12 / Wednesday, January 20, 2010 / Notices pwalker on DSK8KYBLC1PROD with NOTICES as an iron rest or linen rack. The term ‘‘complete’’ ironing table means 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. The 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 were previously classified under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheading 9403.20.0010. Effective July 1, 2003, the subject ironing tables are classified under new HTSUS subheading 9403.20.0011. The subject metal top and leg components are classified under HTSUS subheading 9403.90.8040. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and for Customs and Border Protection (CBP) purposes, the Department’s written description of the scope remains dispositive. Separate Rates Foshan Shunde requested a separate, company-specific antidumping duty rate. In the Preliminary Results, we found that Foshan Shunde provided inaccurate and unreliable data, and as such, the Department was unable to determine Foshan Shunde’s eligibility for separate rate status. Thus, the Department determined Foshan Shunde is properly considered to be part of the PRC-wide entity. See Preliminary Results at 46085; see also Carbazole Violet Pigment 23 from the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 74 FR 883 (January 9, 2009) (where the Department revoked a respondent’s separate rate status after VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:06 Jan 19, 2010 Jkt 220001 the respondent refused to cooperate with the Department’s administrative review). We have not received any information since the Preliminary Results with respect to Foshan Shunde that would warrant changing our separate-rate determination. Therefore, in these Final Results, we have continued to treat Foshan Shunde as part of the PRC-wide entity because Foshan Shunde’s responses contain widespread and pervasive discrepancies, for which the Department is unable to parse any reliable data.

SUMMARY: On September 8, 2009, the U.S. Department of Commerce (the 
Department) published the preliminary results of the August 1, 2007 
through July 31, 2008 administrative review of the antidumping duty 
order on floor-standing, metal-top ironing tables from the People's 
Republic of China (PRC). See Floor-Standing, Metal-Top Ironing Tables 
and Certain Parts Thereof From the People's Republic of China:

46083 (September 8, 2008) (Preliminary Results). This review covers, 
Foshan Shunde Yongjian Housewares & Hardwares Co., Ltd. (Foshan 
Shunde), which we have determined to be part of the PRC-wide entity. We 
invited interested parties to comment on the Preliminary Results.
    Based on our analysis of the comments received, we have made no 
changes to the findings presented in our Preliminary Results. The 
weighted average dumping margin is listed below in the section entitled 
``Final Results of Review.''

DATES: Effective Date: January 20, 2010.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Michael J. Heaney or Robert James, AD/

4475 or (202) 482-0649, respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    We published in the Federal Register the preliminary results of 
this administrative review on September 8, 2009. See Preliminary 
Results.
    Following the Preliminary Results, on October 8, 2009, the 
Department received case briefs from Foshan Shunde and from Polder, 
Inc., an importer of the subject merchandise. On October 13, 2009, Home 
Products International, Inc., the Petitioner in this proceeding, 
submitted a rebuttal brief.

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 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 review.
    Furthermore, the order specifically covers imports of ironing 
tables, assembled or unassembled, complete or incomplete, and certain 
parts thereof. For purposes of the 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

[[Page 3202]]

as an iron rest or linen rack. The term ``complete'' ironing table 
means 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. The 
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 were previously classified under 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheading 
9403.20.0010. Effective July 1, 2003, the subject ironing tables are 
classified under new HTSUS subheading 9403.20.0011. The subject metal 
top and leg components are classified under HTSUS subheading 
9403.90.8040. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for 
convenience and for Customs and Border Protection (CBP) purposes, the 
Department's written description of the scope remains dispositive.

Separate Rates

    Foshan Shunde requested a separate, company-specific antidumping 
duty rate. In the Preliminary Results, we found that Foshan Shunde 
provided inaccurate and unreliable data, and as such, the Department 
was unable to determine Foshan Shunde's eligibility for separate rate 
status. Thus, the Department determined Foshan Shunde is properly 
considered to be part of the PRC-wide entity. See Preliminary Results 
at 46085; see also Carbazole Violet Pigment 23 from the People's 
Republic of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review, 74 FR 883 (January 9, 2009) (where the Department revoked a 
respondent's separate rate status after the respondent refused to 
cooperate with the Department's administrative review). We have not 
received any information since the Preliminary Results with respect to 
Foshan Shunde that would warrant changing our separate-rate 
determination. Therefore, in these Final Results, we have continued to 
treat Foshan Shunde as part of the PRC-wide entity because Foshan 
Shunde's responses contain widespread and pervasive discrepancies, for 
which the Department is unable to parse any reliable data.

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case briefs by the parties and to which we 
have responded are fully addressed in the Memorandum to Ronald K. 
Lorentzen, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, from 
John M. Andersen, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Operations entitled ``Issues and Decision 
Memorandum for the Final Results in the Administrative Review of Floor-
Standing, Metal-Top Ironing Tables and Certain Parts Thereof from the 
People's Republic of China'', (January 6, 2010) (Issues and Decision 
Memorandum), which is hereby adopted by this notice. A list of the 
issues raised, all of which are in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, 
is attached to this notice as Appendix I. Parties can find a complete 
discussion of all issues raised in the briefs and the corresponding 
recommendations in this public memorandum, which is on file in the

and electronic version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are 
identical in content.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on the comments received from interested parties, we have 
made no changes to the analysis employed in the Preliminary Results.

Final Results of Review

    We determine that the following antidumping duty margins exist in 
these final results:

                                                                 Margin

------------------------------------------------------------------------
PRC-wide Entity (which includes Foshan Shunde)...............     157.68
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the Act) and 19 CFR 351.212(b), the Department will determine, 
and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries. The Department intends to issue 
assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of 
these final results of review. We will instruct CBP to assess 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of these final results of this administrative review 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 Foshan Shunde 
the cash deposit rate will be 157.68 percent; (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 that have not been found to be 
entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the PRC-wide 
rate of 157.68 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, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice also serves as the final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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 antidumping duties occurred and in the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    This notice also serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction or conversion to judicial 
protective order of proprietary information disclosed under APO in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3).

[[Page 3203]]

Timely written notification of the return or destruction of APO 
materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby 
requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the terms of an
