Separate Rates In the Preliminary Results, the Department determined that seven companies under review, including Shanghai Jian Pu, the sole mandatory respondent, did not establish their eligibility for separate rate status and would be treated as part of the PRCwide entity.5 We only received comments on the Preliminary Results from Petitioners, which agreed with our preliminary separate rates determination with respect to Shanghai Jian Pu and did not comment on any other entity under review. In these final results of review, we continue to determine that these seven companies should be treated as part of the PRCwide entity because they have not established their separate rate eligibility. Because no party requested a review of the PRC-wide entity, we are not conducting a review of the PRC-wide entity.6 Thus, there is no change to the rate for the PRC-wide entity. The existing rate for the PRC-wide entity is 216.01 percent. Final Determination of No Shipments In the Preliminary Results, we determined that 11 companies subject to this AR had no shipments during the POR.7 We received no comments 5 See Preliminary Results at 80 FR 7576.

Separate Rates

    In the Preliminary Results, the Department determined that seven 
companies under review, including Shanghai Jian Pu, the sole mandatory 
respondent, did not establish their eligibility for separate rate 
status and would be treated as part of the PRC-wide entity.\5\ We only 
received comments on the Preliminary Results from Petitioners, which 
agreed with our preliminary separate rates determination with respect 
to Shanghai Jian Pu and did not comment on any other entity under 
review. In these final results of review, we continue to determine that 
these seven companies should be treated as part of the PRC-wide entity 
because they have not established their separate rate eligibility. 
Because no party requested a review of the PRC-wide entity, we are not 
conducting a review of the PRC-wide entity.\6\ Thus, there is no change 
to the rate for the PRC-wide entity. The existing rate for the PRC-wide 
entity is 216.01 percent.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See Preliminary Results at 80 FR 7576. The six companies 
that did not establish their eligibility for a separate rate, other 
than Shanghai Jian Pu, are: (1) Baigou Crafts Factory of Fengkai; 
(2) Dongguan Hung Sheng Artware Products Co., Ltd., Coronal 
Enterprise Co., Ltd.; (3) Hualing Furniture (China) Co., Ltd., Tony

4, 2013).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, we determined that 11 companies subject 
to this AR had no shipments during the POR.\7\ We received no comments

[[Page 21320]]

concerning our finding of no shipments by these 11 companies. In these 
final results of review, we continue to determine that these 11 
companies had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ The 11 companies with no shipments during the POR are: (1) 
Clearwise Co., Ltd.; (2) Dongguan Chengcheng Furniture Co., Ltd.; 
(3) Dongguan Singways Furniture Co., Ltd.; (4) Eurosa (Kunshan) Co.,

Educational Equipment Co., Ltd.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.212(b), 
the Department has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries 
of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of this 
review. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 
15 days after the publication date of these final results of review. We 
intend to instruct CBP to liquidate POR entries of subject merchandise 
from the seven companies, including Shanghai Jian Pu, which failed to 
establish their eligibility for separate rate status at the rate 
applicable to the PRC-wide entity. For the 11 companies which the 
Department determined had no shipments during the POR, all suspended 
entries under any of those companies' antidumping case numbers will be 
liquidated at the assessment rate for the PRC-wide entity.\8\

Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this review for shipments of the 
subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the publication date in the Federal 
Register of the final results of review, as provided by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For previously investigated or reviewed 
PRC and non-PRC exporters which are not under review in this segment of 
the proceeding but which have separate rates, the cash deposit rate 
will continue to be the existing exporter-specific rate; (2) for all 
PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be 
entitled to a separate rate, including Shanghai Jian Pu and the six 
companies noted above, the cash deposit rate will be the rate for the 
PRC-wide entity, which is 216.01 percent; (3) for all non-PRC exporters 
of subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash 
deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC exporter that 
supplied that non-PRC exporter. These deposit requirements, when 
imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in the Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (``APO'') of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under the APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which 
continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of 
the proceeding. 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 violation which is subject to sanction.
    These final results of review are issued and published in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.213.
