Thus, the Department rescinded this review with respect to those companies.2 On June 22, 2017, the Department issued an antidumping duty questionnaire to Decca, the only company under review that filed a separate rate application. Decca did not respond to the questionnaire. For a complete description of the events that followed the initiation of this administrative review, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum which is hereby adopted by this notice.3 The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically via Enforcement and Compliance’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS).

Under the revised scope, imports of subject merchandise are classified under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings: 9403.90.7005, 9403.90.7080, 9403.50.9041, 9403.60.8081, 9403.20.0018, 9403.90.8041, 7009.92.1000 or 7009.92.5000. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written product description in the Order remains dispositive. Barring any changes to this revised language between the issuance of the preliminary and final results, this revision will be effective as of the final results of this review. For a complete description of the scope of the Order and discussion of the revisions to the harmonized tariff schedule numbers in the scope, please see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Methodology The Department is conducting this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act) and 19 CFR 351.213. For a full description of the methodology underlying our preliminary results of review, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. A list of topics discussed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is provided in the Appendix to this notice. Preliminary Determination of No Shipments Because CBP did not provide any information contradicting the claims of the eight companies under review which claimed to have made no shipments, the Department preliminarily determines that these eight companies did not have any reviewable transactions during the POR.6 For additional information 5 See letter from the petitioners, re: ‘‘Wooden Bedroom Furniture From China: Petitioners’ Comments Regarding The Upcoming Preliminary Results,’’ dated August 29, 2017. 6 The eight companies/company groupings are: (1) Dongguan Sunrise Furniture Co., Taicang Sunrise Wood Industry, Co., Ltd., Shanghai Sunrise Furniture Co., Ltd., Fairmont Designs; (2) Dongguan Sunrise Furniture Co., Taicang Sunrise Wood Industry, Co., Ltd., Taicang Fairmont Designs Furniture Co., Ltd., Meizhou Sunrise Furniture Co., Ltd.; (3) Eurosa (Kunshan) Co., Ltd.; Eurosa Furniture Co., (PTE) Ltd.; (4) Golden Well International (HK) Limited; Zhangzhou Xym Furniture Product Co., Ltd.; (5) RiZhao Sanmu Woodworking Co., Ltd.; (6) Shenyang Shining Dongxing Furniture Co., Ltd.; (7) Woodworth Wooden Industries (Dong Guan) Co., Ltd.; and (8) Yeh Brothers World Trade Inc. PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 47173 regarding this determination, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Consistent with the Department’s practice in non-market economy (NME) cases, the Department is not rescinding this AR, in part, with respect to these eight companies, but intends to complete the review with respect to the companies for which it has preliminarily found no shipments and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of the review.7 Separate Rates Because Decca was the only company under review that submitted a separate rate application, the Department selected Decca as the sole mandatory respondent in this review. As noted above, Decca did not respond to the Department’s antidumping duty questionnaire. Therefore, the Department preliminarily determines that Decca Furniture did not establish its eligibility for separate rate status. In addition, three other companies for which a review was requested failed to provide separate rate applications or certifications.8 Therefore, the Department preliminarily determines that these four companies are part of the PRC-wide entity. Because no party requested a review of the PRC-wide entity, the entity is not under review, and the entity’s rate of 216.01 percent is not subject to change.9 For additional information regarding this determination, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Partial Rescission of Administrative Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party or parties that requested a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the publication date of the notice of initiation of the requested review. As noted above, the petitioners withdrew their request for an administrative review with respect to Fortune Glory within 90 days of the publication date of the notice of initiation. No other parties requested an administrative review of the order with respect to Fortune Glory. Therefore, in accordance 7 See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694, 65694–95 (October 24, 2011) and the ‘‘Assessment Rates’’ section, below. 8 The three companies are: (1) Changshu HTC Import & Export Co., Ltd.; (2) Starwood Industries Ltd.; and (3) U-Rich Furniture (Zhangzhou) Co., Ltd.; U-Rich Furniture Ltd. 9 See Second Amended Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People’s Republic of China, 72 FR 62834 (November 7, 2007).

For Fortune Glory, for which this review is rescinded, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i).

We intend to instruct CBP to liquidate entries of subject merchandise exported by the PRC-wide entity, including Decca and the other three companies noted above which did not qualify for separate rate status, at the PRC-wide rate. Additionally, pursuant to the Department’s practice in NME cases, if we continue to determine that the eight companies noted above had no shipments of subject merchandise, any suspended entries of subject merchandise during the POR under their case numbers will be liquidated at the PRC-wide rate.13 Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this review for shipments of subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided by sections 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters that received a separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing exporterspecific rate; (2) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate for the PRC-wide entity, which is 216.01 percent; and (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 preliminary 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.

SUMMARY: In response to requests from interested parties, the 
Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting the twelfth 
administrative review (AR) of the antidumping duty order on wooden

period of review (POR) is January 1, 2016, through December 31, 2016. 
This AR covers 13 companies, including one mandatory respondent, Decca 
Furniture Ltd. (Decca). The Department has preliminarily determined 
that four of the 13 companies, including Decca, have not established 
their entitlement to a separate rate and are part of the PRC-wide 
entity. The Department has also preliminarily determined that eight 
companies had no reviewable transactions during the POR. The Department 
has also rescinded the review for Nanhai Jiantai Woodwork Co., Ltd., 
Fortune Glory Industrial, Ltd. (HK Ltd.) (collectively, Fortune Glory), 
for whom all review requests have been withdrawn. We invite interested 
parties to comment on these preliminary results.

[[Page 47173]]

Background

    After initiating this review with respect to 80 companies or 
company groupings,\1\ interested parties withdrew all review requests 
for 67 of the 80 companies. Thus, the Department rescinded this review 
with respect to those companies.\2\ On June 22, 2017, the Department 
issued an antidumping duty questionnaire to Decca, the only company 
under review that filed a separate rate application. Decca did not 
respond to the questionnaire. For a complete description of the events 
that followed the initiation of this administrative review, see the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum which is hereby adopted by this 
notice.\3\

Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. The signed Preliminary Decision Memorandum 
and the electronic version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are 
identical in content.

Scope of the Order

    The product covered by the Order is wooden bedroom furniture, 
subject to certain exceptions.\4\ On August 29, 2017, the petitioners 
filed comments addressing a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
ruling indicating that CBP would no longer use certain harmonized 
tariff schedules subheadings to classify items within the scope of the 
Order.\5\ In light of the petitioners' comments, we have preliminarily 
revised the scope to include the harmonized tariff schedule numbers 
under which subject merchandise is entered. Under the revised scope, 
imports of subject merchandise are classified under the Harmonized 
Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings: 9403.90.7005, 
9403.90.7080, 9403.50.9041, 9403.60.8081, 9403.20.0018, 9403.90.8041, 
7009.92.1000 or 7009.92.5000. Although the HTSUS subheadings are 
provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written product 
description in the Order remains dispositive. Barring any changes to 
this revised language between the issuance of the preliminary and final 
results, this revision will be effective as of the final results of 
this review. For a complete description of the scope of the Order and 
discussion of the revisions to the harmonized tariff schedule numbers 
in the scope, please see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

Furniture From China: Petitioners' Comments Regarding The Upcoming 
Preliminary Results,'' dated August 29, 2017.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Methodology

    The Department is conducting this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act) and 19 CFR 
351.213. For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
preliminary results of review, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. 
A list of topics discussed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is 
provided in the Appendix to this notice.

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    Because CBP did not provide any information contradicting the 
claims of the eight companies under review which claimed to have made 
no shipments, the Department preliminarily determines that these eight 
companies did not have any reviewable transactions during the POR.\6\ 
For additional information regarding this determination, see the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Consistent with the Department's 
practice in non-market economy (NME) cases, the Department is not 
rescinding this AR, in part, with respect to these eight companies, but 
intends to complete the review with respect to the companies for which 
it has preliminarily found no shipments and issue appropriate 
instructions to CBP based on the final results of the review.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ The eight companies/company groupings are: (1) Dongguan 
Sunrise Furniture Co., Taicang Sunrise Wood Industry, Co., Ltd., 
Shanghai Sunrise Furniture Co., Ltd., Fairmont Designs; (2) Dongguan 
Sunrise Furniture Co., Taicang Sunrise Wood Industry, Co., Ltd., 
Taicang Fairmont Designs Furniture Co., Ltd., Meizhou Sunrise 
Furniture Co., Ltd.; (3) Eurosa (Kunshan) Co., Ltd.; Eurosa 
Furniture Co., (PTE) Ltd.; (4) Golden Well International (HK) 
Limited; Zhangzhou Xym Furniture Product Co., Ltd.; (5) RiZhao Sanmu 
Woodworking Co., Ltd.; (6) Shenyang Shining Dongxing Furniture Co., 
Ltd.; (7) Woodworth Wooden Industries (Dong Guan) Co., Ltd.; and (8) 
Yeh Brothers World Trade Inc.
    \7\ See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment 
of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694, 65694-95 (October 24, 2011) and 
the ``Assessment Rates'' section, below.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Separate Rates

    Because Decca was the only company under review that submitted a 
separate rate application, the Department selected Decca as the sole 
mandatory respondent in this review. As noted above, Decca did not 
respond to the Department's antidumping duty questionnaire. Therefore, 
the Department preliminarily determines that Decca Furniture did not 
establish its eligibility for separate rate status. In addition, three 
other companies for which a review was requested failed to provide 
separate rate applications or certifications.\8\ Therefore, the 
Department preliminarily determines that these four companies are part 
of the PRC-wide entity. Because no party requested a review of the PRC-
wide entity, the entity is not under review, and the entity's rate of 
216.01 percent is not subject to change.\9\ For additional information 
regarding this determination, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ The three companies are: (1) Changshu HTC Import & Export 
Co., Ltd.; (2) Starwood Industries Ltd.; and (3) U-Rich Furniture

Administrative Review: Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People's 
Republic of China, 72 FR 62834 (November 7, 2007).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Partial Rescission of Administrative Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party or parties 
that requested a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the 
publication date of the notice of initiation of the requested review.

Assessment Rates

    The Department will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on 
all appropriate entries. For Fortune Glory, for which this review is 
rescinded, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the 
cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of 
entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department intends to issue 
appropriate assessment instructions with respect to Fortune Glory to 
CBP 15 days after publication of this notice.
    Upon issuing the final results of this review, the Department will 
determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries covered by this review.\12\ The Department intends to issue 
assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of 
the final results of this review. We intend to instruct CBP to 
liquidate entries of subject merchandise exported by the PRC-wide 
entity, including Decca and the other three companies noted above which 
did not qualify for separate rate status, at the PRC-wide rate. 
Additionally, pursuant to the Department's practice in NME cases, if we 
continue to determine that the eight companies noted above had no 
shipments of subject merchandise, any suspended entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR under their case numbers will be liquidated 
at the PRC-wide rate.\13\

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this review for shipments of 
subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided by 
sections 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For previously investigated or 
reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters that received a separate rate in a 
prior segment of this proceeding, 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, the cash deposit rate will be the rate for the PRC-wide 
entity, which is 216.01 percent; and (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 preliminary 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. We are issuing and publishing 
these results in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of 
the Act and 19 CFR 351.213.

    Dated: October 2, 2017.
Gary Taverman,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations, performing the non-exclusive functions and duties of the 
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
