In addition, in the event the Department determines that expedited action is warranted, 19 CFR 351.221(c)(3)(ii) permits the Department to combine the furniture order apply to the box itself rather than the lid. 16 Elements stated in its April 23 2014 scope ruling request that it is an importer of the certain shoe cabinets, which are currently subject to this order, and as such is an interested party pursuant to 19 CFR 351.102(a)(29)(ii). 17 See 19 CFR 351.216. 18 See section 751(b) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.216(d).

    \10\ As used herein, bentwood means solid wood made pliable. 
Bentwood is wood that is brought to a curved shape by bending it 
while made pliable with moist heat or other agency and then set by 
cooling or drying. See CBP's Headquarters Ruling Letter 043859, 
dated May 17, 1976.

drawers lined with felt or felt-like material, at least one side 
door (whether or not the door is lined with felt or felt-like 
material), with necklace hangers, and a flip-top lid with inset 
mirror. See Issues and Decision Memorandum from Laurel LaCivita to 
Laurie Parkhill, Office Director, concerning ``Jewelry Armoires and 
Cheval Mirrors in the Antidumping Duty Investigation of Wooden 
Bedroom Furniture from the People's Republic of China,'' dated 
August 31, 2004. See also Wooden Bedroom Furniture From the People's 
Republic of China: Final Changed Circumstances Review, and 
Determination To Revoke Order in Part, 71 FR 38621 (July 7, 2006).

height in excess of 50 inches that is mounted on a floor-standing, 
hinged base. Additionally, the scope of the order excludes 
combination cheval mirror/jewelry cabinets. The excluded merchandise 
is an integrated piece consisting of a cheval mirror, i.e., a framed 
tiltable mirror with a height in excess of 50 inches, mounted on a 
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 
50 inches in height, 14.5 inches in width, and 3 inches in depth.

Final Changed Circumstances Review and Determination To Revoke Order 
in Part, 72 FR 948 (January 9, 2007).
    \13\ Metal furniture parts and unfinished furniture parts made 
of wood products (as defined above) that are not otherwise 
specifically named in this scope (i.e., wooden headboards for beds, 
wooden footboards for beds, wooden side rails for beds, and wooden 
canopies for beds) and that do not possess the essential character 
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.
    \14\ 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. See Wooden Bedroom Furniture from 
the People's Republic of China: Final Results of Changed 
Circumstances Review and Determination to Revoke Order in Part, 72 
FR 7013 (February 14, 2007).
    \15\ To be excluded the toy box must: (1) Be wider than it is

safety hinges; (6) have air vents; (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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Imports of subject merchandise are classified under subheadings 
9403.50.9042 and 9403.50.9045 of the 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, or 9403.20.0018. 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.

Initiation of Changed Circumstances Review, and Consideration of 
Revocation of the Order in Part

    Pursuant to section 751(b) of the Act, the Department will conduct 
a changed circumstances review upon receipt of a request from an 
interested party\16\ which shows changed circumstances sufficient to 
warrant a review of an order.\17\ Based on the information provided by 
Elements and the Petitioners' statement that they agree with Elements' 
exclusion language for certain shoe cabinets, the Department has 
determined that there exist changed circumstances sufficient to warrant 
a changed circumstances review of the AD order on wooden bedroom 
furniture from the PRC.\18\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \16\ Elements stated in its April 23 2014 scope ruling request 
that it is an importer of the certain shoe cabinets, which are 
currently subject to this order, and as such is an interested party 
pursuant to 19 CFR 351.102(a)(29)(ii).
    \17\ See 19 CFR 351.216.
    \18\ See section 751(b) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.216(d).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Section 782(h)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(g)(1)(i) provide 
that the Department may revoke an order (in whole or in part) if it 
determines that producers accounting for substantially all of the 
production of the domestic like product have expressed a lack of 
interest in the order, in whole or in part. In addition, in the event 
the Department determines that expedited action is warranted, 19 CFR 
351.221(c)(3)(ii) permits the Department to combine the

[[Page 41262]]

notices of initiation and preliminary results. In its administrative 
practice, the Department has interpreted ``substantially all'' to mean 
producers accounting for at least 85 percent of the total U.S. 
production of the domestic like product covered by the order.\19\ 
Because Petitioners did not indicate whether they account for 
substantially all of the domestic production of wooden bedroom 
furniture, we are providing interested parties with the opportunity to 
address the issue of domestic industry support with respect to this 
proposed partial revocation of the order and we are not combining this 
notice of initiation with a preliminary determination pursuant to 19 
CFR 351.221(c)(3)(ii). As explained below, this notice of initiation 
will afford all interested parties an opportunity to address the 
proposed partial revocation.
