Background

    On January 4, 2005, the Department published the Order in the 
Federal Register. On April 10, 2015, the Department received a request 
on behalf of Olollo, Inc. (``Olollo'') for a changed circumstances 
review to revoke, in part, the Order with respect to certain bed 
bases.\3\ On June 1, 2015, the Department published the Initiation 
Notice for the requested CCR in the Federal Register.\4\ On October 9, 
2015, the Department published the Preliminary Results of this CCR in 
which it found that producers accounting for substantially all of the 
production of the domestic like product lack interest in the relief 
afforded by the Order with respect to certain bed bases as described in 
Olollo's Request.\5\ The Department invited interested parties to 
submit comments on the Preliminary Results in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.309(c)(1)(ii). We received no comments.

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 pursuant to section 751(d)(1) of the Tariff Act 
of 1930, as amended (the ``Act''), and 19 CFR 351.222(g), 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 the following type of bed bases, we are revoking the Order, 
as to certain bed bases by including the following language in the 
scope of the Order:

    Also excluded from the scope are certain bed bases consisting 
of: (1) A wooden box frame, (2) three wooden cross beams and one 
perpendicular center wooden support beam, and (3) wooden slats over 
the beams. These bed bases are constructed without inner springs 
and/or coils and do not include a headboard, footboard, side rails,

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

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.
    Also excluded from the scope are certain bed bases consisting of: 
(1) A wooden box frame, (2) three wooden cross beams and one 
perpendicular center wooden support beam, and (3) wooden slats over the 
beams. These bed bases are constructed without inner springs and/or 
coils and do not include a headboard, footboard, side rails, or 
mattress. The bed bases are imported unassembled.
    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 
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 this revocation 
that are not covered by the final results of an administrative review 
or automatic liquidation.

    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 Act and 19 CFR 351.216, 19 CFR 351.221(c)(3), and 19 CFR 351.222.
