As explained below, this notice of initiation will afford all interested parties an opportunity to address the proposed partial revocation. 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 19 which shows changed circumstances sufficient to warrant a review of an order.20 Based on the information provided by Olollo, 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.21 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 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.22 Petitioners state that they agree with the exclusion request, however, 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 Lhorne on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES the above description, regardless of tariff classification.

    \11\ 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.
    \12\ Any armoire, cabinet or other accent item for the purpose

depth, and 49 inches in height, including a minimum of 5 lined 
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).
    \13\ Cheval mirrors are any framed, tiltable mirror with a 
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. 
See Wooden Bedroom Furniture From the People's Republic of China: 
Final Changed Circumstances Review and Determination To Revoke Order 
in Part, 72 FR 948 (January 9, 2007).
    \14\ 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.
    \15\ 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).
    \16\ To be excluded the toy box must: (1) Be wider than it is 
tall; (2) have dimensions within 16 inches to 27 inches in height,

width; (3) have a hinged lid that encompasses the entire top of the 
box; (4) not incorporate any doors or drawers; (5) have slow-closing 
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.
    \17\ Enclosable wall bed units, also referred to as murphy beds, 
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 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. See Wooden Bedroom Furniture From the People's Republic of 
China: Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review, and Revocation 
of Antidumping Duty Order, in Part, 79 FR 64569 (October 30, 2014).
    \18\ Excluded shoe cabinets are 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. See Wooden Bedroom 
Furniture From the People's Republic of China: Final Results of 
Changed Circumstances Review, and Revocation of Antidumping Duty 
Order, in Part, 80 FR 18383 (April 6, 2015).

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 \19\ which shows changed circumstances sufficient to 
warrant a review of an order.\20\ Based on the information provided by 
Olollo, 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.\21\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \19\ Olollo stated in its April 29, 2015 entry of appearance 
that it is an importer of subject merchandise and as such is an 
interested party pursuant to 19 CFR 351.102(a)(29)(ii).
    \20\ See 19 CFR 351.216.
    \21\ 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 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.\22\ Petitioners state that 
they agree with the exclusion request, however, 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

circumstances review, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(c)(3), which 
will set forth the factual and legal conclusions upon which the 
preliminary results are based, and a description of any action proposed 
because of those results. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4)(ii), 
interested parties will have an opportunity to comment on the 
preliminary results of the review. In accordance with 19 CFR 
351.216(e), the Department will issue the final results of its AD 
changed circumstance review within 270 days after the date on which the 
review is initiated.
