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

    \19\ 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.
    \20\ 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

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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Also excluded from the scope are certain shoe cabinets 31.5-33.5 
inches wide by 15.5-17.5 inches deep by 34.5-36.5 inches high. They are 
designed strictly to store shoes, which are intended to be aligned in 
rows perpendicular to the wall along which the cabinet is positioned. 
Shoe cabinets do not have drawers, rods, or other indicia for the 
storage of clothing other than shoes. The cabinets are not designed, 
manufactured, or offered for sale in coordinated groups or sets and are 
made substantially of wood, have two to four shelves inside them, and 
are covered by doors. The doors often have blinds that are designed to 
allow air circulation and release of bad odors. The doors themselves 
may be made of wood or glass. The depth of the shelves does not exceed 
14 inches. Each shoe cabinet has doors, adjustable shelving, and 
ventilation holes.
    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, 9403.20.0018, or 9403.90.8041. 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

[[Page 18385]]

tariff classification. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for 
convenience and customs purposes, our written description of the scope 
of this proceeding is dispositive.

Instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection

    Because we determine that there are changed circumstances that 
warrant the revocation of the Order, in part, we will instruct U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') to liquidate without regard to 
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.

Notification

    This notice serves as a reminder to parties subject to an 
administrative protective order (``APO'') of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.306. 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 sanctionable violation.
    We are issuing and publishing these final results and revocation, 
in part, and notice in accordance with sections 751(b) and 777(i) of 
the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.216, 19 CFR
