The Department preliminarily determines that Macao Commercial and Industrial Spring Mattress Manufacturer (‘‘Macao Commercial’’) had no reviewable shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. We also preliminarily determine that East Grace Corporation (‘‘East Grace’’) has not established its entitlement to separate rate status and, therefore, is being treated as part of the PRC-wide entity.

East Grace did not respond to the Department’s standard questionnaire and has not participated in this proceeding. Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to the order is uncovered innerspring units composed of a series of individual metal springs joined together in sizes corresponding to the sizes of adult mattresses (e.g., twin, twin long, full, full long, queen, California king and king) and units used in smaller constructions, such as crib and youth mattresses. Uncovered innersprings are classified under subheading 9404.29.9010 and have also been classified under subheadings 9404.10.0000, 9404.29.9005, 9404.29.9011, 7326.20.0070, 7320.20.5010, 7320.90.5010, or 7326.20.0071 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’).

We note that the Initiation Notice appeared to identify ‘‘Macao Commercial’’ and ‘‘Industrial Spring Mattress Manufacturer’’ as two separate companies. However, the name of the single company for which a review was requested was actually ‘‘Macao Commercial and Industrial Spring Mattress Manufacturer,’’ and we clarify now that this is the correct name of the company under review. 5 See Letter to East Grace Corporation, dated May 11, 2015, and Letter to Macao Commercial and Industrial Spring Mattress Manufacturer, dated May 11, 2015. 6 For a full description of the scope of the Order, see Decision Memorandum from Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, to Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, entitled ‘‘Preliminary Results of 2014– 2015 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Uncovered Innerspring Units from the People’s Republic of China’’ (‘‘Preliminary Decision Memorandum’’), issued concurrently with and adopted by this notice.

    On February 19, 2016, TB Woods Incorporated (Petitioner) made a
