Order: Wooden Bedroom Furniture From the People's Republic of China, 70

Shipper Review of Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People's Republic 
of China: Marvin Furniture (Shanghai) Co. Ltd.: (``Initiation 
Checklist''), dated concurrently with this notice.
    In addition to the certifications described above, pursuant to 19 
CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iv), Marvin submitted documentation establishing the

warehouse, for consumption; (2) the volume of its first shipment; and 
(3) the date of its first sale to an unaffiliated customer in the 
United States. See generally, Initiation Checklist.
    The Department conducted a CBP database query and confirmed by 
examining the results of the CBP data query that Marvin's subject 
merchandise entered the United States during the POR specified by the 
Department's regulations. See 19 CFR 351.214(g)(1)(i)(A). Pursuant to 
19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), the Department will publish the notice of 
initiation of a new shipper review no later than the last day of the 
month following the anniversary or semiannual anniversary month of the 
order.

Initiation of New Shipper Review

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act, 19 CFR 351.214(b), and 
the information on the record, the Department finds that Marvin meets 
the threshold requirements for initiation of a new shipper review of 
its shipment(s) of wooden bedroom furniture from the PRC. See 
generally, Initiation Checklist. The POR for the new shipper review of 
Marvin is January 1, 2011, through June 30, 2011. See 19 CFR 
351.214(g)(1)(i)(B). The Department intends to issue the preliminary 
results of this review no later than 180 days from the date of 
initiation, and the final results of this review no later than 270 days 
from the date of initiation. See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act.
    It is the Department's usual practice, in cases involving non-
market economies, to require that a company seeking to establish 
eligibility for an antidumping duty rate separate from the country-wide 
rate provide evidence of de jure and de facto absence of government 
control over the company's export activities. Accordingly, we will 
issue a questionnaire to Marvin which will include a separate rate 
section. The review of the exporter will proceed if the response 
provides sufficient indication that the exporter is not subject to 
either de jure or de facto government control with respect to its 
exports of wooden bedroom furniture.
    We will instruct CBP to allow, at the option of the importer, the 
posting, until the completion of the review, of a bond or security in 
lieu of a cash deposit for certain entries of the subject merchandise 
from Marvin in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act and 
19 CFR 351.214(e). Because Marvin stated that it both produces and 
exports the subject merchandise, the sales of which form the basis for 
its new shipper review request, we will instruct CBP to permit the use 
of a bond only for entries of subject merchandise which the respondent 
both produced and exported.
    Interested parties requiring access to proprietary information in 
this new shipper review should submit applications for disclosure under 
administrative protective order in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305 and 
351.306.
    This initiation and notice are published in accordance with section 
751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214 and 351.221(c)(1)(i).

    Dated: August 25, 2011.
