Commerce initiated the review on April 3, 2015,4 and sent questionnaires to both of the respondents under review. During the course of the sixth administrative 1 See Uncovered Innerspring Units from the People’s Republic of China, South Africa, and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Initiation of Antidumping Duty Investigations, 73 FR 4817 (January 28, 2008). 2 See Uncovered Innerspring Units from the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Antidumping Duty Order, 74 FR 7661 (February 19, 2009) (Order). 3 The sixth administrative review covered the period of review (POR) February 1, 2014, through January 31, 2015.

Commerce stated that this determination applied only with respect to Macao Commercial’s Chinese-origin subject merchandise, but explained that it intended to evaluate whether selfinitiation of a circumvention inquiry would be warranted based upon information submitted during the review and in light of Commerce’s prior circumvention findings in this proceeding.6 Commerce self-initiated an anticircumvention inquiry pursuant to section 781(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, (the Act) and 19 CFR 351.225(h) to determine whether innersprings produced by Macao Commercial in Macao from materials 5 See, e.g., Memorandum to the File ‘‘Factual Information from the Sixth Administrative Review,’’ dated November 22, 2016 (AR6 Factual Information Memo), at Attachment 1, Macao Commercial’s July 21, 2016 Supplemental Response.
