    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

Decision Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Methodology

    The Department is conducting this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). With 
respect to PT Sunhere, we relied on facts available and, because PT 
Sunhere did not act to the best of its ability to respond to the 
Department's requests for information, we drew an adverse inference in 
selecting from among the facts otherwise available.\11\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ See sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, please see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. 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).

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

Partial Rescission of Administrative Review

    The Department issued its questionnaire to Jietai Machinery but the 
questionnaire was returned as undeliverable. Despite our request to the 
petitioner, we received no alternative addresses for Jietai Machinery. 
Accordingly, consistent with the Department's practice in similar 
circumstances,\12\ the Department is rescinding the administrative 
review with respect to Jietai Machinery.

Preliminary Results of Review

    The Department preliminarily determines that a dumping margin of 
234.51 percent exists for PT Sunhere for the period February 1, 2016, 
through January 31, 2017.

Assessment Rates

    As noted above, we are rescinding the review with respect to Jietai

days after the date of publication of this notice for Jietai

[[Page 51604]]

Machinery. 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).
    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, 
and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries 
covered by this review.\18\ The Department intends to issue assessment 
instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final 
results of this review. We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review if any 
assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review is above 
de minimis. The final results of this review shall be the basis for the 
assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by 
the final results of this review and for future deposits of estimated 
duties, where applicable. Assessment of duties resulting from the final 
results of this review will pertain only to entries of subject 
merchandise (i.e., innerspring units from the PRC).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \18\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for 
shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of 
this notice, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For PT 
Sunhere, the cash deposit rate will be that established in the final 
results of this review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, then 
zero cash deposit will be required) and the Department will collect 
cash deposits only on PT Sunhere's PRC-origin merchandise; (2) for 
previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not 
listed above 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 published for the most recently completed 
period; (3) 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 PRC-wide rate of 234.51 percent; and (4) 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 31, 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.
