SUMMARY: As a result of the determinations by the Department of Commerce (Commerce) and the International Trade Commission (ITC) that revocation of the antidumping duty orders on uncovered innerspring units (innersprings) from the People’s Republic of China (China), South Africa, and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (Vietnam), would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping and material injury to an industry in the United States, Commerce is publishing a notice of continuation of the antidumping duty orders.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:10 Oct 15, 2019 Jkt 250001 Background On March 1, 2019, Commerce published the initiation of the second five-year (sunset) reviews of the antidumping duty orders on uncovered innerspring units from China, South Africa, and Vietnam, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (the Act), as amended.1 Commerce received notices of intent to participate in these sunset reviews from Leggett & Platt, Incorporated (the domestic interested party), within the 15-day period specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i). The domestic interested party claimed interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act as a producer of the domestic like product. Commerce received an adequate substantive response to the Notice of Initiation from the domestic interested party within the 30-day period specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). Commerce received no substantive response from any respondent interested parties. In accordance with section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), Commerce conducted expedited (120-day) sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on uncovered innerspring units from China, South Africa, and Vietnam.2 As a result of its review, Commerce determined, pursuant to section 751(c)(1) and 752(c) of the Act, that revocation of the Orders would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping.3 Commerce, therefore, notified the ITC of the magnitude of the dumping margins likely to prevail should the Orders be revoked. On October 3, 2019, the ITC published its determination, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act, that revocation of the antidumping duty orders on innersprings from China, South Africa and Vietnam would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time.4 1 See Initiation of Five-Year (Sunset) Reviews, 84 FR 7021 (March 1, 2019) (Notice of Initiation). 2 See Uncovered Innerspring Units from the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Antidumping Duty Order, 74 FR 7661 (February 19, 2009); Antidumping Duty Order: Uncovered Innerspring Units from South Africa, 73 FR 75390 (December 11, 2008); and Antidumping Duty Order: Uncovered Innerspring Units from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, 73 FR 75391 (December 11, 2008) (collectively, the Orders). 3 See Uncovered Innerspring Units from the People’s Republic of China, South Africa, and Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Final Results of the Expedited Sunset Reviews of the Antidumping Duty Orders, 84 FR 32878 (July 10, 2019) (Final Results), and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum. 4 See Uncovered Innerspring Units from China, South Africa, and Vietnam: Investigation Nos. 731– PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 55285 Scope of the Orders The merchandise covered by these Orders are 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. All uncovered innerspring units are included in this scope regardless of width and length. Included within this definition are innersprings typically ranging from 30.5 inches to 76 inches in width and 68 inches to 84 inches in length. Innersprings for crib mattresses typically range from 25 inches to 27 inches in width and 50 inches to 52 inches in length. Uncovered innerspring units are suitable for use as the innerspring component in the manufacture of innerspring mattresses, including mattresses that incorporate a foam encasement around the innerspring. Pocketed and non-pocketed innerspring units are included in this definition. Non-pocketed innersprings are typically joined together with helical wire and border rods. Non-pocketed innersprings are included in this definition regardless of whether they have border rods attached to the perimeter of the innerspring. Pocketed innersprings are individual coils covered by a ‘‘pocket’’ or ‘‘sock’’ of a nonwoven synthetic material or woven material and then glued together in a linear fashion. Uncovered innersprings are classified under subheading 9404.29.9010 and have also been classified under subheadings 9404.10.0000, 7326.20.0070, 7320.20.5010, or 7320.90.5010 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). On January 11, 2011, Commerce included HTSUS classification numbers 9404.29.9005 and 9404.29.9011 to the customs case reference file, pursuant to a request by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). On January 7, 2013, Commerce included the HTSUS classification 7326.20.0071 number to the customs case reference file, pursuant to a request by CBP. The HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes only; the written description of the scope of the Orders is dispositive. Continuation of the Orders As a result of the determinations by Commerce and the ITC that revocation of the Orders would likely lead to a TA–1140–1142 (Second Review), 84 FR 52896 (October 3, 2019).
