On January 17, 2020, in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act) and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), Commerce published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of an administrative review.4 On March 5, 2020, Commerce issued its initial antidumping questionnaire to Golden Dragon.5 On April 8, 2020, Golden Dragon timely withdrew its request for an administrative review.6 On April 24, 2020, Commerce tolled all deadlines in administrative reviews by 50 days, due to COVID–19.7 Rescission of Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), Commerce will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party that requested the review withdraws its request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. In this case, Golden Dragon withdrew its request by the 90-day deadline, and no other party requested an administrative review of the Order with respect to Golden Dragon. Therefore, we are rescinding the administrative review of the Order for the period November 1, 2018 through October 31, 2019, in its entirety. Assessment Commerce intends to instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of copper pipe and tube from China during the POR 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). Commerce intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. 3 See Golden Dragon’s Letter, ‘‘Seamless Refined Copper Pipe and Tube from China: Request for Antidumping Duty Administrative Review,’’ dated November 29, 2019. 4 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 85 FR 3014, 3021 (January 17, 2020). 5 See Commerce’s Letter, ‘‘2018–2019 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Seamless Refined Copper Pipe and Tube from the People’s Republic of China,’’ dated March 5, 2020. 6 See Golden Dragon’s Letter, ‘‘Withdrawal of Request for Review, Seamless Refined Copper Pipe and Tube from China’’ dated April 8, 2020. 7 See Memorandum, ‘‘Tolling of Deadlines for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews in Response to Operational Adjustments Due to COVID–19,’’ dated April 24, 2020.

Failure to comply with this requirement could result in Commerce’s presumption that reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties. Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written notification of the return or destruction of APO materials, or conversion to judicial protective order, is hereby requested.

On March 26, 2020, Commerce placed U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data on the record of this review demonstrating that there were no entries of subject merchandise during the POR.5 We asked interested parties to file comments on this data by April 2, 2020.

All uncovered innerspring units are included in the scope regardless of width and length. Including within this definition are innersprings typically raining from 30.5 inches to 76 inches in width and 68 inches to 84 inches in length. Innerspring 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, 9404.29.9005, 9404.29.9011, 7326.20.0070, 7326.20.0090, 7320.20.5010, 7320.90.5010, or 7326.20.0071 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS).7 The HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes only; the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. Methodology Commerce 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. Preliminary Results of Review Angkor Spring, the sole company subject to this review, did not file an SRA. Thus, Commerce preliminarily determines that this company has not demonstrated its eligibility for separate rate status. As such, Commerce preliminarily determines that the company subject to this review is part of the Vietnam-wide entity. In addition, 7 Based on a recommendation by CBP, on September 15, 2017, Commerce added HTS 7326.20.0090 to the scope.

In this administrative review, no party requested a review of the Vietnam-wide entity. Moreover, we have not self-initiated a review of the Vietnam-wide entity. Because no review of the Vietnam-wide entity is being conducted, the Vietnam-wide entity’s entries are not subject to the review, and the rate applicable to the NME entity is not subject to change as a result of this review. The Vietnam-wide entity rate is 116.31 percent.9 Public Comment Interested parties are invited to comment on the preliminary results and may submit case briefs and/or written comments, filed electronically via Enforcement and Compliance’s Antidumping Duty and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS), within 30 days after the date of publication of these preliminary results of review.10 ACCESS is available to registered users at https://access.trade.gov.

Assessment Rates Upon issuance of the final results of this review, Commerce will determine, and CBP will shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise covered by this review.16 We intend to instruct CBP to liquidate entries containing subject merchandise exported by the company under review that we determine in the final results to be part of the Vietnamwide entity at the Vietnam-wide entity rate of 116.31 percent. Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of this review in the Federal Register.17 Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this review for shipments of the subject merchandise from Vietnam 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 companies that have a separate rate, 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); (2) for previously investigated or reviewed Vietnamese or nonVietnamese exporters not listed above that received a separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, the cash 14 See 19 CFR 351.310(c). 19 CFR 351.310(d). 16 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 17 For a full discussion of this practice, see NonMarket Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011). 15 See E:\FR\FM\01JYN1.SGM 01JYN1 39526 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 127 / Wednesday, July 1, 2020 / Notices deposit rate will continue to be the existing exporter-specific rate; (3) for all Vietnamese exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that for the Vietnamwide entity (i.e., 116.31 percent); and (4) for all non-Vietnamese exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the Vietnamese exporter that supplied that non-Vietnamese exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers This notice also serves as a reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 315.402(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 Commerce’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

the Vietnam-wide entity because it did not file a separate rate 
application (SRA). The period of review (POR) is December 1, 2018 
through November 31, 2019. We invite interested parties to comment on 
these preliminary results.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On December 6, 2019, Commerce published a notice of opportunity to 
request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on 
uncovered innerspring units from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam 
(Vietnam).\1\ In response, on December 31, 2019, Leggett & Platt, 
Incorporated (the petitioner) requested a review of one company, Angkor 
Spring Co., Ltd. (Angkor Spring).\2\ Commerce initiated a review of 
this company on February 6, 2020.\3\ The deadline for interested 
parties to submit an SRA or separate rate certification (SRC) was March 
9, 2020.\4\ No party submitted an SRA or an SRC. On March 26, 2020, 
Commerce placed U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data on the 
record of this review demonstrating that there were no entries of 
subject merchandise during the POR.\5\ We asked interested parties to 
file comments on this data by April 2, 2020. The petitioner submitted 
comments on the CBP data on April 2, 2020.\6\

Administrative Reviews, 85 FR 6896 (February 6, 2020) (Initiation

    \4\ SRAs and SRCs were due thirty days from the publication of 
Commerce's Initiation Notice. In this administrative review, the 
deadline was March 7, 2020, a Saturday. Because the deadline fell on 
a weekend, according to Commerce's ``Next Business Day'' rule, the 
deadline was moved forward to the next business day, Monday, March 
9, 2020. See Notice of Clarification: Application of ``Next Business

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

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to this 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

[[Page 39525]]

king) and units used in small constructions, such as crib and youth 
mattresses. All uncovered innerspring units are included in the scope 
regardless of width and length. Including within this definition are 
innersprings typically raining from 30.5 inches to 76 inches in width 
and 68 inches to 84 inches in length. Innerspring 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, 
9404.29.9005, 9404.29.9011, 7326.20.0070, 7326.20.0090, 7320.20.5010, 
7320.90.5010, or 7326.20.0071 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the 
United States (HTSUS).\7\ The HTSUS subheadings are provided for 
convenience and customs purposes only; the written description of the 
scope of the order is dispositive.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ Based on a recommendation by CBP, on September 15, 2017, 
Commerce added HTS 7326.20.0090 to the scope. See Memorandum, 
``Request from Customs and Border Protection to Update the ACE AD/
CVD Case Reference File,'' dated September 15, 2017 (Barcode 
3622582-01).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Methodology

    Commerce 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.

Preliminary Results of Review

    Angkor Spring, the sole company subject to this review, did not 
file an SRA. Thus, Commerce preliminarily determines that this company 
has not demonstrated its eligibility for separate rate status. As such, 
Commerce preliminarily determines that the company subject to this 
review is part of the Vietnam-wide entity. In addition, Commerce no 
longer considers the non-market economy (NME) entity as an exporter 
conditionally subject to an antidumping duty administrative review.\8\ 
Accordingly, the NME entity will not be under review unless Commerce 
specifically receives a request for, or self-initiates, a review of the 
NME entity. In this administrative review, no party requested a review 
of the Vietnam-wide entity. Moreover, we have not self-initiated a 
review of the Vietnam-wide entity. Because no review of the Vietnam-
wide entity is being conducted, the Vietnam-wide entity's entries are 
not subject to the review, and the rate applicable to the NME entity is 
not subject to change as a result of this review. The Vietnam-wide 
entity rate is 116.31 percent.\9\

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results of this review, Commerce will 
determine, and CBP will shall assess, antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries of subject merchandise covered by this review.\16\ 
We intend to instruct CBP to liquidate entries containing subject 
merchandise exported by the company under review that we determine in 
the final results to be part of the Vietnam-wide entity at the Vietnam-
wide entity rate of 116.31 percent. Commerce intends to issue 
assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of 
the final results of this review in the Federal Register.\17\

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this review for shipments of the 
subject merchandise from Vietnam 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 companies that have a 
separate rate, 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); (2) for previously 
investigated or reviewed Vietnamese or non-Vietnamese exporters not 
listed above that received a separate rate in a prior segment of this 
proceeding, the cash

[[Page 39526]]

deposit rate will continue to be the existing exporter-specific rate; 
(3) for all Vietnamese exporters of subject merchandise that have not 
been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate 
will be that for the Vietnam-wide entity (i.e., 116.31 percent); and 
(4) for all non-Vietnamese exporters of subject merchandise which have 
not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate 
applicable to the Vietnamese exporter that supplied that non-Vietnamese 
exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in 
effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 315.402(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 Commerce's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these preliminary results in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act, and 19 CFR 
351.213(h) and 351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: June 23, 2020.

Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
