Revised Extension of Time Limits Regulation On September 20, 2013, the Department modified its regulation concerning the extension of time limits for submissions in antidumping and countervailing duty proceedings: Final Rule, 78 FR 57790 (September 20, 2013). The modification clarifies that parties may request an extension of time limits before a time limit established under Part 351 expires, or as otherwise specified by the Secretary. In general, an extension request will be considered untimely if it is filed after the time limit established under Part 351 expires. For submissions which are due from multiple parties simultaneously, an extension request will be considered untimely if it is filed after 10:00 a.m. on the due date. Examples include, but are not limited to: (1) Case and rebuttal briefs, filed pursuant to 19 CFR 351.309; (2) factual information to value factors under 19 CFR 351.408(c), or to measure the adequacy of remuneration under 19 CFR 351.511(a)(2), filed pursuant to 19 CFR 351.301(c)(3) and rebuttal, clarification and correction filed pursuant to 19 CFR 351.301(c)(3)(iv); (3) comments concerning the selection of a surrogate country and surrogate values and rebuttal; (4) comments concerning U.S. Customs and Border Protection data; and (5) quantity and value questionnaires. Under certain circumstances, the Department may elect to specify a different time limit by which extension requests will be considered untimely for submissions which are due from multiple parties simultaneously. In such a case, the Department will inform parties in the letter or memorandum setting forth the deadline (including a specified time) by which extension requests must be filed to be considered timely. This modification also requires that an extension request must be made in a separate, stand-alone submission, and clarifies the circumstances under which the Department will grant untimelyfiled requests for the extension of time limits. These modifications are effective for all segments initiated on or after October 21, 2013.

SUMMARY: On August 18, 2014, the Department of Commerce (the ‘‘Department’’) published its Preliminary Results of a changed circumstances review and intent to revoke, in part, the antidumping duty (‘‘AD’’) order on wooden bedroom furniture from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) 1 with respect to certain wall bed units.2 The Department preliminarily determined that the producers accounting for substantially all of the production of the domestic like product to which the Order pertains lack interest in the relief provided by the Order with respect to certain wall bed units. We invited interested parties to comment on the Preliminary Results. As no parties submitted comments, the Department is making no changes to the Preliminary Results.

Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review, and Revocation of the Order, in Part Because no party submitted comments opposing the Department’s Preliminary Results, and the record contains no other information or evidence that calls into question the Preliminary Results, the Department determines that there are changed circumstances that warrant revocation of the Order, in part.

    On January 4, 2005, the Department published the Order in the

Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review, and Revocation of the 
Order, in Part

    Because no party submitted comments opposing the Department's 
Preliminary Results, and the record contains no other information or 
evidence that calls into question the Preliminary Results, the 
Department determines that there are changed circumstances that warrant 
revocation of the Order, in part. Specifically, because the producers 
accounting for substantially all of the production of the domestic like 
product to which the Order pertains lack interest in the relief 
provided by the Order with respect to certain wall bed units, we are 
revoking the Order, in part, with respect to certain wall bed units by 
including the following language in the scope of the Order:

    Also excluded from the scope are certain enclosable wall bed 
units, also referred to as murphy beds, which are composed of the 
following three major sections: (1) A metal wall frame, which 
attaches to the wall and uses coils or pistons to support the metal 
mattress frame; (2) a metal frame, which has

[[Page 64570]]

euro slats for supporting a mattress and two legs that pivot; and 
(3) wood panels, which attach to the metal wall frame and/or the 
metal mattress frame to form a cabinet to enclose the wall bed when 
not in use. Excluded enclosable wall bed units are imported in 
ready-to-assemble format with all parts necessary for assembly. 
Enclosable wall bed units do not include a mattress. Wood panels of 
enclosable wall bed units, when imported separately, remain subject 
to the order.

of wooden bedroom furniture in an unassembled, incomplete, or 
unfinished form. Such parts are usually classified under HTSUS

    \19\ Upholstered beds that are completely upholstered, i.e.,

of China: Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review and

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.

of this proceeding is dispositive.

antidumping duties, and to refund any estimated antidumping duties on, 
all unliquidated entries of the merchandise covered by the revocation 
that are not covered by the final results of an administrative review 
or automatic liquidation.
