subject merchandise upon which its request for a new shipper review is 
based. Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(I) of the Act and 19 CFR

bedroom furniture to the United States during the period of 
investigation (``POI''). In addition, pursuant to section 
751(a)(2)(B)(i)(II) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(A), Wuxi 
Yushea certified that, since the initiation of the investigation, it 
has never been affiliated with any PRC exporter or producer who 
exported wooden bedroom furniture to the United States during the POI, 
including those not individually examined during the investigation. As 
required by 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(B), Wuxi Yushea also certified 
that its export activities were not controlled by the central 
government of the PRC.\4\

    In addition to the certifications described above, pursuant to 19

furniture for export to the United States; (2) the volume of its first

Initiation of New Shipper Review

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act, 19 CFR 351.214(b), and 
based on the information on the record, the Department finds that Wuxi 
Yushea meets the threshold requirements for initiation of a new shipper 
review of its shipment(s) of wooden bedroom furniture from the PRC.\7\ 
However, if the information supplied by Wuxi Yushea is later found to 
be incorrect or insufficient during the course of this proceeding, the 
Department may rescind the review or apply adverse facts available 
pursuant to section 776 of the Act, depending upon the facts on the 
record. The POR for the new shipper review of Wuxi Yushea is January 1, 
2013, through December 31, 2013.\8\ 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. 
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 90 days after the date the 
preliminary results are issued.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See, generally, Initiation Checklist.
    \8\ See 19 CFR 351.214(g)(1)(i)(A).
    \9\ See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    It is the Department's usual practice, in cases involving non-
market economies (``NME''), to require that a company seeking to 
establish eligibility for an antidumping duty rate separate from the 
NME-wide entity to 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 Wuxi Yushea 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 Wuxi Yushea in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the 
Act and 19 CFR 351.214(e). Because Wuxi Yushea exports and produces the 
subject merchandise, the sales of which form the basis of 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 
exported and produced.
    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).
