Such parts are usually classified under HTSUS subheadings 9403.90.7005, 9403.90.7010, or 9403.90.7080. 16 Upholstered beds that are completely upholstered, i.e., containing filling material and completely covered in sewn genuine leather, synthetic leather, or natural or synthetic decorative fabric. To be excluded, the entire bed (headboards, footboards, and side rails) must be upholstered except for bed feet, which may be of wood, metal, or any other material and which are no more than nine inches in height from the floor.

Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, our written description of the scope of this proceeding is dispositive. Final Rescission of the Antidumping New Shipper Review of Marvin Furniture In the Preliminary Rescission, the Department determined to rescind the NSR of Marvin Furniture because Marvin Furniture’s subject merchandise was entered into the United States for consumption prior to the POR and it did not report this fact to the Department in its request for an NSR. The Department continues to find that Marvin Furniture’s request for an NSR does not meet the requirements for an NSR under 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iv)(A) and (B). Specifically, Marvin Furniture’s request for an NSR did not contain (7) have no locking mechanism; and (8) comply with American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standard F963–03. Toy boxes are boxes generally designed for the purpose of storing children’s items such as toys, books, and 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. 18 On October 27, 2011, CBP provided notification that HTSUS number 9403.90.8041 should be added to the scope of the order, as certain articles under this number may fall within the scope.

For further discussion of this issue, see the I&D Memorandum. Assessment Rates Because the Department is rescinding Marvin Furniture’s NSR, the assessment rate to which Marvin Furniture’s shipments will be subject will not be affected by this review. The assessment rate, however, could change because the Department is currently conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on WBF from the PRC covering the period of January 1, 2011, through December 31, 2011.19 Effective upon publication of this notice, the Department will instruct CBP to continue to suspend entries during the period January 1, 2011, through December 31, 2011, of subject merchandise exported by Marvin Furniture until CBP receives instructions relating to the administrative review of the WBF order covering the period January 1, 2011, through December 31, 2011. Cash Deposit Requirements Effective upon publication of this notice of final rescission of the NSR of Marvin Furniture, the Department will instruct CBP to discontinue the option of posting a bond or security in lieu of a cash deposit for entries of subject merchandise exported by Marvin Furniture. Cash deposits will continue to be required for exports of subject merchandise by Marvin Furniture entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of this notice at the PRC-wide rate, 216.01 percent. srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Notification to Importers This notice 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 antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. 19 See Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of Administrative Review, 77 FR 12235 (February 29, 2012).

floor-standing, hinged base, the cheval mirror serving as a door to 
a cabinet back that is integral to the structure of the mirror and 
which constitutes a jewelry cabinet line with fabric, having 
necklace and bracelet hooks, mountings for rings and shelves, with 
or without a working lock and key to secure the contents of the 
jewelry cabinet back to the cheval mirror, and no drawers anywhere 
on the integrated piece. The fully assembled piece must be at least

of wooden bedroom furniture in an unassembled, incomplete, or 
unfinished form. Such parts are usually classified under HTSUS 
subheadings 9403.90.7005, 9403.90.7010, or 9403.90.7080.
    \16\ Upholstered beds that are completely upholstered, i.e.,

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 subheadings 
9403.50.9042 and 9403.50.9045 of the U.S. Harmonized Tariff Schedule 
(``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 9403.50.9042 or 9403.50.9045 of the 
HTSUS as ``parts of wood.'' Subject merchandise may also be entered 
under subheadings 9403.50.9041, 9403.60.8081, 9403.20.0018, or 
9403.90.8041.\18\ Further, framed glass mirrors may be entered under 
subheading 7009.92.1000 or 7009.92.5000 of the HTSUS as ``glass mirrors 
* * * framed.'' The 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \18\ On October 27, 2011, CBP provided notification that HTSUS 
number 9403.90.8041 should be added to the scope of the order, as 
certain articles under this number may fall within the scope. See 
Memorandum from Patrick O'Connor to the File, ``Request for Customs 
and Border Protection to Update AD/CVD Module for Wooden Bedroom 
Furniture from the People's Republic of China,'' dated January 4, 
2012.

Final Rescission of the Antidumping New Shipper Review of Marvin 
Furniture

    In the Preliminary Rescission, the Department determined to rescind 
the NSR of Marvin Furniture because Marvin Furniture's subject 
merchandise was entered into the United States for consumption prior to 
the POR and it did not report this fact to the Department in its 
request for an NSR. The Department continues to find that Marvin 
Furniture's request for an NSR does not meet the requirements for an 
NSR under 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iv)(A) and (B). Specifically, Marvin 
Furniture's request for an NSR did not contain

[[Page 21538]]

documentation establishing the date on which its subject merchandise 
was first entered into the United States for consumption and the volume 
of that first entry. For further discussion of this issue, see the I&D 
Memorandum.

Assessment Rates

    Because the Department is rescinding Marvin Furniture's NSR, the 
assessment rate to which Marvin Furniture's shipments will be subject 
will not be affected by this review. The assessment rate, however, 
could change because the Department is currently conducting an 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on WBF from the PRC 
covering the period of January 1, 2011, through December 31, 2011.\19\ 
Effective upon publication of this notice, the Department will instruct 
CBP to continue to suspend entries during the period January 1, 2011, 
through December 31, 2011, of subject merchandise exported by Marvin 
Furniture until CBP receives instructions relating to the 
administrative review of the WBF order covering the period January 1, 
2011, through December 31, 2011.

China: Initiation of Administrative Review, 77 FR 12235 (February 
29, 2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cash Deposit Requirements

    Effective upon publication of this notice of final rescission of 
the NSR of Marvin Furniture, the Department will instruct CBP to 
discontinue the option of posting a bond or security in lieu of a cash 
deposit for entries of subject merchandise exported by Marvin 
Furniture. Cash deposits will continue to be required for exports of 
subject merchandise by Marvin Furniture entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of this 
notice at the PRC-wide rate, 216.01 percent.

Notification to Importers

    This notice 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 antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Return or Destruction of Proprietary Information

    This notice serves as a reminder to parties subject to the 
administrative protective order (``APO'') 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 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 APO is a violation which is subject to sanction.
    This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 
751(a)(2)(B) and 777(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended and 19 
CFR 351.214(f).

    Dated: April 3, 2012.

Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
