Wooden Bedroom Furniture From the People's Republic of China: Initiation of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review, 11342-11344 [2020-04006]

Download as PDF 11342 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 39 / Thursday, February 27, 2020 / Notices published the Preliminary Results.1 Although we invited parties to comment on the Preliminary Results,2 no interested party submitted comments. Accordingly, no decision memorandum accompanies this Federal Register notice. Commerce conducted this administrative review in accordance with section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Scope of the Order The products covered by the order include drawn stainless steel sinks. Imports of subject merchandise are currently classified under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings 7324.10.0000 and 7324.10.0010. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive.3 Final Results of Review and Final Determination of No Shipments We made no changes from the Preliminary Results. Therefore, as a result of this review, we determine that the two mandatory respondents, New Shichu and KaiPing, have not established their eligibility for a separate rate and are part of the Chinawide entity. We also determine that, because the following companies did not submit separate rate applications or certifications, they are ineligible for a separate rate and are part of the Chinawide entity: B&R Industries Limited (B&R); Feidong Import and Export Co. Ltd. (Feidong); Guangdong G-Top Import & Export Co., Ltd. (G-Top); Jiangmen Pioneer Import & Export Co., Ltd. (Pioneer); Ningbo Afa Kitchen and Bath Co., Ltd. (Ningbo Afa); Xinhe Stainless Steel Products Co., Ltd. (Xinhe); Yuyao Afa Kitchenware Co., Ltd. (Yuyao Afa); and Zhongshan Superte Kitchenware Co., Ltd. (Superte). We also determine that, because Zhuhai Kohler Kitchen & Bathroom Products Co. Ltd. (Kohler) failed to respond to Commerce’s supplemental separate rate questionnaire, this company is ineligible for a separate rate and is part of the China-wide entity. Finally, we continue to grant a separate rate to New Star, which demonstrated eligibility for separate rate status, but was not selected lotter on DSKBCFDHB2PROD with NOTICES 1 See Drawn Stainless Steel Sinks from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Preliminary Determination of No Shipments; 2018– 2019, 84 FR 70946 (December 26, 2019) (Preliminary Results), and accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum (PDM). 2 Id., 84 FR at 70947. 3 For a complete description of the scope of the order, see the Preliminary Results PDM at 3–4. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:26 Feb 26, 2020 Jkt 250001 for individual examination.4 We determine that the dumping margin for New Star for the period April 1, 2018 through March 31, 2019 is as follows: Weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) Exporter Jiangmen New Star Hi-Tech Enterprise Ltd. ................... 1.78 rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate for China-wide entity, 76.45 percent; and (4) for all exporters of subject merchandise which are not located in China and which are not eligible for a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to Chinese exporter(s) that supplied that non-Chinese exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers Assessment Rates Commerce shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b). Because we determined that the following companies were not eligible for a separate rate and are part of the China-wide entity, we will instruct CBP to apply an ad valorem assessment rate of 76.45 percent to all entries of subject merchandise during the POR that were produced and/or exported by: B&R; Feidong; G-Top; KaiPing; Kohler; New Shichu; Ningbo Afa; Pioneer; Superte; Xinhe; and Yuyao Afa. We will instruct CBP to apply an assessment rate to all entries of merchandise produced and/or exported by New Star equal to the dumping margin indicated above. Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final results of review. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the company listed above that has a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established in these final results of review; (2) for previously investigated or reviewed Chinese and non-Chinese exporters not listed above that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be equal to the exporter-specific weighted-average dumping margin published of the most recently-completed segment of this proceeding; (3) for all Chinese exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate 4 We assigned New Star the most recently assigned separate rate in this proceeding (i.e., 1.78 percent).

The CBP data that Commerce examined are consistent with information provided by Kunshan Jujia in its NSR request. In particular, the CBP data confirm the price and quantity reported by Kunshan Jujia for the sale that forms that basis of its NSR request.9 Period of Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(c), an exporter or producer may request an NSR within one year of the date on which its subject merchandise was first entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption, or shipped to the United States, as appropriate.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    Commerce published the Order on January 4, 2005.\1\ On January 28, 
2020, pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.214(c), Commerce received a timely 
NSR request from Kunshan Jujia Decoration Design Co., Ltd (Kunshan 
Jujia).\2\ The deadline for publication of the NSR initiation is 
February 28, 2020.

    \2\ See Kunshan Jujia's January 28, 2020 New Shipper Review 
Request (NSR Request).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In its submission, Kunshan Jujia certified that it is the producer 
and exporter of the subject merchandise upon which its request for a 
NSR is based.\3\ Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(I) of the Act and 
19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(i), Kunshan Jujia certified that it did not export 
WBF to the United States during the period of investigation (POI).\4\ 
Additionally, pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(II) of the Act and 19 
CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(A), Kunshan Jujia certified that, since the 
initiation of the investigation, it has never been affiliated with any 
producer or exporter that exported WBF to the United States during the 
POI, including those not individually examined during the 
investigation.\5\ As required by 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(B), Kunshan 
Jujia also certified that its export activities are not controlled by 
the central government of China.\6\ Further, Kunshan Jujia certified 
that it has not made subsequent shipments of subject merchandise.\7\

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

    In addition to the certifications described above, pursuant to 19 
CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iv), Kunshan Jujia submitted documentation 
establishing the following: (1) The date on which it first shipped WBF 
for export to the United States and the date on which the WBF was first

    Commerce conducted a query of U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) data and confirmed that Kunshan Jujia's subject merchandise 
entered the United States for consumption and that liquidation of such 
entries had been properly suspended for antidumping duties. The CBP 
data that Commerce examined are consistent with information provided by 
Kunshan Jujia in its NSR request. In particular, the CBP data confirm 
the price and quantity reported by Kunshan Jujia for the sale that 
forms that basis of its NSR request.\9\

Shipper Review of Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People's 
Republic of China: Kunshan Jujia Decoration Design Co., Ltd.

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

Period of Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(c), an exporter or producer may request 
an NSR within one year of the date on which its subject merchandise was 
first entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption, or shipped 
to the United States, as appropriate. Kunshan Jujia requested this NSR 
within one year of the date on which its WBF first entered the United 
States, and made its request in the month of January, which is the 
anniversary month of the Order.\10\ In accordance with 19 CFR 
351.214(g)(l)(i)(A), the POR is January 1, 2019, through December 31, 
2019.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ See NSR Request at Exhibit 2.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Initiation of NSR

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act, 19 CFR 351.214(b), and 
based on the information on the record, we find that Kunshan Jujia's 
NSR request meets the threshold requirements for initiation of a NSR of 
its shipment(s) of WBF to the United States.\11\ However, if the 
information supplied by Kunshan Jujia is later found to be incorrect or 
insufficient during the course of this NSR, Commerce may rescind the 
review or apply adverse facts available, pursuant to section 776 of the 
Act, as appropriate. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), Commerce will 
publish the notice of initiation of an NSR no later than the last day 
of the month following the anniversary or semiannual anniversary month 
of the order. Commerce intends to issue the preliminary results of this 
review no later than 180 days from the date of initiation, and the 
final results of this review no later than 90 days after the date the 
preliminary results are issued.\12\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ See generally NSR request.
    \12\ See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    It is Commerce's usual practice, in cases involving non-market 
economies, to require that a company seeking to establish eligibility 
for an antidumping duty rate separate from the country-wide rate (i.e., 
separate rate) to provide evidence of de jure and de facto absence of 
government control over the company's export activities.\13\ 
Accordingly, Commerce will issue questionnaires to Kunshan Jujia 
requesting, inter alia, information regarding its export activities for 
the purpose of determining whether it is eligible for a separate rate. 
The review of the exporter will proceed if the response provides 
sufficient indication that the exporter is not subject to either de 
jure or de facto government control with respect to its exports of WBF.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ See Import Administration Policy Bulletin, Number: 05.1. 
(http://ia.ita.doc.gov/policy/bull05-l.pdf).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We will conduct this NSR in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of 
the Act.\14\ Because Kunshan Jujia certified that it produced and 
exported subject merchandise, the sale of which is the basis for its 
NSR request, Commerce will instruct CBP to continue to suspend 
liquidation of all entries of subject merchandise produced and exported 
by Kunshan Jujia. To assist in its analysis of the bona fide nature of 
Kunshan Jujia's sales, upon initiation of this NSR, Commerce will 
require Kunshan Jujia to submit, on an ongoing basis, complete 
transaction information concerning any sales of subject merchandise to 
the United States that were made subsequent to the POR.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \14\ The Act was amended by the Trade Facilitation and Trade 
Enforcement Act of 2015 which removed from section 751(a)(2)(B) of 
the Act the provision directing Commerce to instruct CBP to allow an 
importer the option of posting a bond or security in lieu of a cash 
deposit during the pendency of an NSR.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Interested parties requiring access to proprietary information in 
this NSR should submit applications for disclosure under administrative 
protective order in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305 and 351.306. This 
initiation notice is published in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) 
of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214 and 351.221(c)(1)(i).
