SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) has received requests to conduct an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on wooden bedroom furniture from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). The anniversary month of this order is January. In accordance with the Department’s regulations, we are initiating this administrative review. DATES: Effective Date: February 28, 2013. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jeffrey Pedersen, AD/CVD Operations, Office 4, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:12 Feb 27, 2013 Jkt 229001 Washington, DC 20230, telephone: (202) 482–2769. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The Department received timely requests, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), for an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on wooden bedroom furniture from the PRC covering multiple entities.1 The Department is now initiating an administrative review of the order covering those entities. All deadlines for the submission of various types of information, certifications, or comments or actions by the Department discussed below refer to the number of calendar days from the applicable starting time. On December 3, 2012, the American Furniture Manufacturers Committee for Legal Trade and Vaughan-Bassett Furniture Company, Inc. (‘‘Petitioners’’) submitted comments in which they requested that the Department amend its respondent selection process and also request additional information from respondents applying for separate-rate status. In the notice announcing the opportunity to request administrative reviews of the antidumping duty order on wooden bedroom furniture from the PRC, the Department asked that parties wanting to comment on the processes discussed by Petitioners or on Petitioners’ December 3, 2012, submission do so by January 31, 2013. We have received no comments in response to this invitation.2 Based on comments from Petitioners and the unique circumstances present in administering this order, for the purposes of this segment of the proceeding, i.e., the 2012 review period, the Department has decided to modify the process by which it will collect quantity and value (‘‘Q&V’’) information upon which the selection of mandatory respondents will be made. Further, we have decided to require that all parties filing separate rate applications or certifications respond to the Q&V questionnaire and certain additional questions. The Q&V questionnaire, the additional questions, and the Separate Rate Application and Separate Rate Certification will be included in a document package that will be available on the Department’s Web site. Responses to the additional questions 1 See Notice of Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order: Wooden Bedroom Furniture From the People’s Republic of China, 70 FR 329 (January 4, 2005). 2 See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review, 78 FR 288 (January 3, 2013). PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and to the Q&V questionnaire will be due at the same time that responses to the Separate Rate Application and Separate Rate Certification are due unless otherwise noted by the Department. Notice of No Sales If a producer or exporter named in this notice of initiation had no exports, sales, or entries during the period of review (‘‘POR’’), it must notify the Department within 60 days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register.3 All submissions must be filed electronically at <http:// iaaccess.trade.gov> in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303.4 Such submissions are subject to verification in accordance with section 782(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘Act’’). Further, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303(f)(3)(ii), a copy of each request must be served on the petitioner and each exporter or producer specified in the request. Respondent Selection Section 777A(c)(1) of the Act directs the Department to calculate individual dumping margins for each known exporter and producer of the subject merchandise. Where it is not practicable to examine all known producers/ exporters of subject merchandise, section 777A(c)(2)(B) of the Act permits the Department to examine exporters and producers accounting for the largest volume of the subject merchandise from the exporting country that can be reasonably examined. Due to the large number of firms for which an administrative review of wooden bedroom furniture has been requested, and the Department’s experience regarding the resulting administrative burden of reviewing each company for which a request has been made, the Department is considering exercising its authority to limit the number of respondents selected for review in accordance with the Act. In the event that the Department limits the number of respondents for individual examination in the administrative review of wooden bedroom furniture from the PRC, the Department intends to select respondents based on volume data 3 Producers or exporters may also fulfill this requirement by submitting a properly filed and timely Q&V questionnaire response that indicates that the entity or entities had no exports, sales, or entries of subject merchandise during the POR. See discussion infra providing further information regarding Q&V questionnaires. 4 See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Electronic Filing Procedures; Administrative Protective Order Procedures, 76 FR 39263 (July 6, 2011).
