Notifications 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 Department’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties. This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). 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 sanctionable violation.

VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:57 Aug 29, 2014 Jkt 232001 preliminary results of the eighth administrative review (‘‘AR’’) and new shipper review (‘‘NSR’’) of wooden bedroom furniture from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) covering the period of review (‘‘POR’’) January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2012.1 We gave interested parties an opportunity to comment on the Preliminary Results. After reviewing interested parties’ comments, we made certain changes to our dumping margin calculations for the only participating mandatory respondent in the AR, Hualing Furniture (China) Co., Ltd., Tony House Manufacture (China) Co., Ltd., Buysell Investments Ltd., and Tony House Industries Co., Ltd. (collectively ‘‘Tony House Group’’) and the new shipper Dongguan Chengcheng Co., Ltd. (‘‘Dongguan Chengcheng’’). For these final results of the AR, we continue to find that 46 companies, including two of the three mandatory respondents,2 failed to establish eligibility for separate-rate status and, thus, we treated these companies as part of the PRC-wide entity. We also continue to find that 12 companies, which made no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR and timely filed certifications to that effect, will retain their separate-rate status. The final antidumping duty margins for these reviews are listed below in the ‘‘Final Results of the 2012 Administrative Review’’ and ‘‘Final Results of the 2012 New Shipper Review’’ sections of this notice.

For the NSR, we selected new surrogate values for multi-density fiberboard and paint, used different financial statements to calculate the financial ratios that we used to calculate Dongguan Chengcheng’s antidumping duty margin, and revised the calculation for brokerage and handling. Scope of the Order The product covered by the order is wooden bedroom furniture, subject to certain exceptions. Imports of subject merchandise are currently classified under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) subheadings: 9403.50.9042, E:\FR\FM\02SEN1.SGM 02SEN1 51955 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 169 / Tuesday, September 2, 2014 / Notices 9403.50.9045, 9403.50.9080, 9403.50.9041, 9403.60.8081, 9403.20.0018, 9403.90.8041, 7009.92.1000 or 7009.92.5000. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written product description in the Order remains dispositive.3 Final Determination of No Shipments As noted in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, we determined that the following companies did not have any reviewable entries during the POR: (1) Clearwise Company Limited (‘‘Clearwise’’); (2) COE Limited (‘‘COE’’); (3) Dongguan Singways Furniture Co., Ltd. (‘‘Singways’’); (4) Dongguan Yujia Furniture Co., Ltd. (‘‘Dongguan Yujia’’); (5) Eurosa (Kunshan) Co., Ltd.

(‘‘Yeh Brothers’’); and (12) Zhejiang Tianyi Scientific & Educational Equipment Co., Ltd. (‘‘Zhejiang Tianyi’’).4 No parties commented on this issue, and we have not received any information that contradicts these companies’ claims of no-shipments. Thus, we continue to find that these companies did not have entries of subject merchandise during the POR. We will issue instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) for any suspended entries under these companies’ antidumping duty case numbers as noted below. Final Results of the 2012 Administrative Review The Department has determined that the following dumping margin exists for the period January 1, 2012, through December 31, 2012: Weightedaverage margin (percent) Exporter Hualing Furniture (China) Co., Ltd.; Tony House Manufacture (China) Co., Ltd.; Buysell Investments Ltd.; and Tony House Industries Co., Ltd .......

The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of these final results of reviews. For each individually examined respondent in these reviews whose weighted-average dumping margin in the final results of review is above de minimis (i.e., 0.05 percent), the Department calculated importer (or customer)-specific assessment rates, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).6 Where the respondent reported reliable entered values, we calculated importer (or customer)-specific ad valorem rates by aggregating the dumping margins calculated for all U.S. sales to each importer (or customer) and dividing this amount by the total entered value of the sales to each importer (or customer).7 Where the Department calculated a weighted-average dumping margin by dividing the total amount of dumping 3 For a complete description of the scope of the order, see I&D Memorandum. 4 See Preliminary Results, 79 FR 10768 and accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum at ‘‘Preliminary Determination of No Shipments.’’ We note that in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, we incorrectly identified Strongson by the following company names: ‘‘Strongson Furniture Co., Ltd., Strongson (HK) Company and Strongson (HK) Company.’’ We should instead have listed the following company names for Strongson: ‘‘Strongson Furniture (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd.; Strongson Furniture Co., Ltd.; and Strongson (HK) Co.’’ See Wooden Bedroom Furniture From the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of Administrative Review, 78 FR 13626 (February 28, 2013).

Where either the respondent’s weighted average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer (or customer-) specific ad valorem or per-unit rate is zero or de minimis, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.9 In 2011, the Department announced a refinement to its assessment practice in NME cases.10 Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by companies individually examined during these reviews, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the NME-wide rate. In addition, if the Department determines that an exporter under review had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under that exporter’s case number (i.e., at that exporter’s rate) will be liquidated at the NME-wide rate.11 Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of these reviews for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the company listed in the ‘‘Final Results of the 2012 Administrative Review’’ section of this notice above and the exporter-producer combination listed in the ‘‘Final Results of the 2012 New Shipper Review’’ section of this notice above, the cash deposit rate will be the rate listed above for the company, except if the rate is zero or de minimis, then no cash deposit will be required for that company; (2) for Clearwise; COE; Singways; Dongguan Yujia; Eurosa; Golden Well; Cadman; Sen Yeong; Shenyang Shining; Strongson; Yeh Brothers; and Zhejiang Tianyi, which had no shipments, the cash deposit rate will remain unchanged from the rate 8 Id. 9 See Final Modification.

Wooden Bedroom Furniture From the People's Republic of China: 
Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and New Shipper 
Review; 2012

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: On February 26, 2014, the Department of Commerce (the 
``Department'') published the preliminary results of the eighth 
administrative review (``AR'') and new shipper review (``NSR'') of 
wooden bedroom furniture from the People's Republic of China (``PRC'') 
covering the period of review (``POR'') January 1, 2012 through 
December 31, 2012.\1\ We gave interested parties an opportunity to 
comment on the Preliminary Results. After reviewing interested parties' 
comments, we made certain changes to our dumping margin calculations 
for the only participating mandatory respondent in the AR, Hualing 
Furniture (China) Co., Ltd., Tony House Manufacture (China) Co., Ltd., 
Buysell Investments Ltd., and Tony House Industries Co., Ltd. 
(collectively ``Tony House Group'') and the new shipper Dongguan 
Chengcheng Co., Ltd. (``Dongguan Chengcheng''). For these final results 
of the AR, we continue to find that 46 companies, including two of the 
three mandatory respondents,\2\ failed to establish eligibility for 
separate-rate status and, thus, we treated these companies as part of 
the PRC-wide entity. We also continue to find that 12 companies, which 
made no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR and timely 
filed certifications to that effect, will retain their separate-rate 
status. The final antidumping duty margins for these reviews are listed 
below in the ``Final Results of the 2012 Administrative Review'' and 
``Final Results of the 2012 New Shipper Review'' sections of this 
notice.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On February 26, 2014, the Department published its Preliminary 
Results of the AR and NSR of the antidumping order on wooden bedroom 
furniture from the PRC covering the period January 1, 2012, through 
December 31, 2012. In March 2014, interested parties timely submitted 
surrogate value information in the AR and surrogate value and rebuttal 
surrogate value information in the NSR. In April 2014, interested 
parties submitted briefs and rebuttal briefs in both the AR and the 
NSR.

Analysis of the Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case briefs are addressed in the 
memorandum from Gary Taverman, Senior Advisor for Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Operations, to Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary 
for Enforcement and Compliance, ``Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the 
People's Republic of China: Issues and Decision Memorandum for the 
Final Results of the 2012 Administrative Review and New Shipper 
Review'' (``I&D Memorandum''), which is dated concurrently with, and 
hereby adopted by, this notice. A list of the issues addressed in the 
I&D Memorandum is appended to this notice. The I&D Memorandum is a 
public document and is on file electronically via Enforcement and 
Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic 
Services System (``IA ACCESS''). Access to IA ACCESS is available to 
registered users at http://iaaccess.trade.gov and in the Central 
Records Unit of the main Commerce Building, Room 7046. In addition, a 
complete version of the I&D Memorandum is accessible on the 
Department's Web site at http://www.trade.gov/enforcement/. The signed 
I&D Memorandum and electronic version of the I&D Memorandum are 
identical in content.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    For the AR, we corrected errors in the financial ratio calculations 
that we used to calculate the Tony House Group's antidumping duty 
margin. For the NSR, we selected new surrogate values for multi-density 
fiberboard and paint, used different financial statements to calculate 
the financial ratios that we used to calculate Dongguan Chengcheng's 
antidumping duty margin, and revised the calculation for brokerage and 
handling.

Scope of the Order

    The product covered by the order is wooden bedroom furniture, 
subject to certain exceptions. Imports of subject merchandise are 
currently classified under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United 
States (``HTSUS'') subheadings: 9403.50.9042,

[[Page 51955]]

9403.50.9045, 9403.50.9080, 9403.50.9041, 9403.60.8081, 9403.20.0018, 
9403.90.8041, 7009.92.1000 or 7009.92.5000. Although the HTSUS 
subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the 
written product description in the Order remains dispositive.\3\

    \3\ For a complete description of the scope of the order, see 
I&D Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Determination of No Shipments

    As noted in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, we determined that 
the following companies did not have any reviewable entries during the 
POR: (1) Clearwise Company Limited (``Clearwise''); (2) COE Limited 
(``COE''); (3) Dongguan Singways Furniture Co., Ltd. (``Singways''); 
(4) Dongguan Yujia Furniture Co., Ltd. (``Dongguan Yujia''); (5) Eurosa 
(Kunshan) Co., Ltd. (``Eurosa''); (6) Golden Well International (HK) 
Limited (``Golden Well''); (7) Hangzhou Cadman Trading Co, Ltd. 
(``Cadman''); (8) Sen Yeong International Co., Ltd.; Sheh Hau 
International Trading Ltd. (``Sen Yeong''); (9) Shenyang Shining 
Dongxing Furniture Co., Ltd. (``Shenyang Shining''); (10) Strongson 
Furniture (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd.; Strongson Furniture Co., Ltd.; 
Strongson (HK) Co. (``Strongson''); (11) Yeh Brothers World Trade Inc. 
(``Yeh Brothers''); and (12) Zhejiang Tianyi Scientific & Educational 
Equipment Co., Ltd. (``Zhejiang Tianyi'').\4\ No parties commented on 
this issue, and we have not received any information that contradicts 
these companies' claims of no-shipments. Thus, we continue to find that 
these companies did not have entries of subject merchandise during the 
POR. We will issue instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') for any suspended entries under these companies' antidumping 
duty case numbers as noted below.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See Preliminary Results, 79 FR 10768 and accompanying 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum at ``Preliminary Determination of No 
Shipments.'' We note that in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, we 
incorrectly identified Strongson by the following company names: 
``Strongson Furniture Co., Ltd., Strongson (HK) Company and 
Strongson (HK) Company.'' We should instead have listed the 
following company names for Strongson: ``Strongson Furniture 
(Shenzhen) Co., Ltd.; Strongson Furniture Co., Ltd.; and Strongson 
(HK) Co.'' See Wooden Bedroom Furniture From the People's Republic 
of China: Initiation of Administrative Review, 78 FR 13626 (February 
28, 2013). We will update our liquidation instructions for Strongson 
with the correct company names.

exists for the period January 1, 2012, through December 31, 2012:

Assessment

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the ``Act''), and 19 CFR 351.212(b), the Department has 
determined, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries of subject merchandise and deposits of estimated duties, where 
applicable, in accordance with the final results of these reviews. The 
Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days 
after the publication date of these final results of reviews.
    For each individually examined respondent in these reviews whose 
weighted-average dumping margin in the final results of review is above 
de minimis (i.e., 0.05 percent), the Department calculated importer (or 
customer)-specific assessment rates, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1).\6\ Where the respondent reported reliable entered 
values, we calculated importer (or customer)-specific ad valorem rates 
by aggregating the dumping margins calculated for all U.S. sales to 
each importer (or customer) and dividing this amount by the total 
entered value of the sales to each importer (or customer).\7\ Where the 
Department calculated a weighted-average dumping margin by dividing the 
total amount of dumping

[[Page 51956]]

for reviewed sales to that party by the total sales quantity associated 
with those transactions, the Department will direct CBP to assess 
importer (or customer)-specific assessment rates based on the resulting 
per-unit rates.\8\ Where an importer (or customer-) specific ad valorem 
or per-unit rate is greater than de minimis, the Department will 
instruct CBP to collect the appropriate duties at the time of 
liquidation. Where either the respondent's weighted average dumping 
margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer (or customer-) specific ad 
valorem or per-unit rate is zero or de minimis, the Department will 
instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to 
antidumping duties.\9\

Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In 2011, the Department announced a refinement to its assessment 
practice in NME cases.\10\ Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for 
entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by 
companies individually examined during these reviews, the Department 
will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the NME-wide rate. In 
addition, if the Department determines that an exporter under review 
had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that 
entered under that exporter's case number (i.e., at that exporter's 
rate) will be liquidated at the NME-wide rate.\11\

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of these reviews for all shipments of 
the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after the publication date, as provided for by 
section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the company listed in the 
``Final Results of the 2012 Administrative Review'' section of this 
notice above and the exporter-producer combination listed in the 
``Final Results of the 2012 New Shipper Review'' section of this notice 
above, the cash deposit rate will be the rate listed above for the 
company, except if the rate is zero or de minimis, then no cash deposit 
will be required for that company; (2) for Clearwise; COE; Singways; 
Dongguan Yujia; Eurosa; Golden Well; Cadman; Sen Yeong; Shenyang 
Shining; Strongson; Yeh Brothers; and Zhejiang Tianyi, which had no 
shipments, the cash deposit rate will remain unchanged from the rate 
assigned to these companies in the most recently completed review of 
the companies; (3) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-
PRC exporters who are not under review in this segment of the 
proceeding but who have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will 
continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most recent 
period; (4) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not 
been found to be entitled to a separate rate, including Marvin 
Furniture, Foliot Furniture Inc., aka Meubles Foliot Inc. and the forty 
four other companies listed in footnote 5 above, the cash deposit rate 
will be the PRC-wide rate of 216.01 percent; and (5) for all non-PRC 
exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own 
rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC 
exporter(s) that supplied that non-PRC exporter. These deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

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

Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
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/destruction 
of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby 
requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO 
is a violation which is subject to sanction.
    These final results of reviews are issued and published in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1), 751(a)(2)(B), 777(i) of the Act and 
19 CFR 351.213, 351.214.

    Dated: August 25, 2014.

Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
