Rescission of the Antidumping New Shipper Review

    For the reasons explained in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, 
Commerce continues to find that the sale made by Jujia is not a bona 
fide sale for purposes of the AD law. Commerce reached this conclusion 
based on the totality of the evidence, including, among other things, 
the sales price and quantity. Because Jujia made no bona fide sales 
during the period of review (POR), we are rescinding the NSR.

Assessment Rates

    As Commerce is rescinding this NSR, Jujia's status with respect to 
the antidumping duty order on wooden bedroom furniture from the 
People's Republic of China (China) remains unchanged. Jujia remains 
part of the China-wide entity and, accordingly, entries of its subject 
merchandise into the United States during the POR will be assessed at 
the China-wide rate.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    Because we are rescinding this NSR, we are not determining a 
company-specific cash deposit rate for Jujia. Jujia continues to be 
part of the China-wide entity and is, therefore, subject to the China-
wide entity cash deposit rate of 216.01 percent.\6\

Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to an 
Administrative Protective Order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under an APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, which 
continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of 
the

proceeding. Timely written notification of the return or destruction of 
APO materials, or conversion to judicial protective order, is hereby 
requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO

    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(2)(B) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
