The subject tables are produced in a variety of leg finishes, such as painted, plated, or matte, and they are available with various features, including iron rests, linen racks, and others. The subject ironing tables may be sold with or without a pad and/or cover. All types and configurations of floor-standing, metal-top ironing tables are covered by this review. Furthermore, this Order specifically covers imports of ironing tables, assembled or unassembled, complete or incomplete, and certain parts thereof. For purposes of this Order, the term ‘‘unassembled’’ ironing table means a product requiring the attachment of the leg assembly to the top or the attachment of an included feature such as an iron rest or linen rack. The term ‘‘complete’’ ironing table means product sold as a ready-to-use ensemble consisting of the metal-top table and a pad and cover, with or without additional features, e.g., iron rest or linen rack. The term ‘‘incomplete’’ ironing table means product shipped or sold as a ‘‘bare board’’—i.e., a metal-top table only, without the pad and cover– with or without additional features, e.g., iron rest or linen rack. The major parts or components of ironing tables that are intended to be covered by this Order under the term ‘‘certain parts thereof’’ consist of the metal top component (with or without assembled supports and slides) and/or the leg components, whether or not attached together as a leg assembly. The Order covers separately shipped metal top components and leg components, without regard to whether the respective quantities would yield an exact quantity of assembled ironing tables. Ironing tables without legs (such as models that mount on walls or over doors) are not floor-standing and are specifically excluded. Additionally, tabletop or countertop models with short legs that do not exceed 12 inches in length (and which may or may not collapse or retract) are specifically excluded. The subject ironing tables were previously classified under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheading 9403.20.0010. Effective July 1, 2003, the subject ironing tables are classified under HTSUS subheading 9403.20.0011. The subject metal top and leg components are classified under HTSUS subheading 9403.90.8040. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and for U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) purposes, the PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 written description of the scope remains dispositive. Continuation of the Order As a result of the determinations by Commerce and the ITC that revocation of the Order would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping and material injury to an industry in the United States, pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the Act, Commerce hereby orders the continuation of the antidumping order on ironing tables from China. CBP will continue to collect antidumping duty cash deposits at the rates in effect at the time of entry for all imports of subject merchandise. The effective date of the continuation of the Order will be the date of publication in the Federal Register of this notice of continuation. Pursuant to section 751(c)(2) of the Act, Commerce intends to initiate the next five-year review of the Order not later than 30 days prior to the fifth anniversary of the effective date of continuation. Notification to Interested Parties This five-year (sunset) review and this notice are in accordance with section 751(c) of the Act and published pursuant to section 777(i)(1) of the Act.

Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP no earlier than 35 days after the date of publication of the final results of this review in the Federal Register. If a timely summons is filed at the U.S. Court of International Trade, the assessment instructions will direct CBP not to liquidate relevant entries until the time for parties to file a request for a statutory injunction has expired (i.e., within 90 days of publication). For the companies for which we have rescinded this administrative review, antidumping duties shall be assessed 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 11 See 19 CFR 351.310(c). 19 CFR 351.310(d). 13 See 19 CFR 351.309; see also 19 CFR 351.303 (for general filing requirements); and Temporary Rule. 14 See section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. 15 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 12 See VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:08 Aug 30, 2021 Jkt 253001 351.212(c)(1)(i).

These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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 and/or countervailing duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

Partial Rescission of Administrative Review

    Section 351.213(d)(1) of Commerce's regulations provides that 
Commerce will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if 
all parties that requested a review withdraw their requests for review 
within 90 days of the publication date of the notice of initiation of 
the requested review. On July 13, 2021, the petitioner timely withdrew 
its request for administrative review of the following companies: (1)

in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are rescinding this review 
with respect to these companies. The administrative review will 
continue for the remaining companies for which a review was requested 
and not withdrawn: KaiPing and New Star.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

China-Wide Entity

    In accordance with Commerce's policy, the China-wide entity will 
not be under review unless a party specifically requests, or Commerce 
self-initiates, a review of the entity.\5\ Because no party requested a 
review of the China-wide entity in this review, the entity is not under 
review, and the entity's rate is not subject to change (i.e., 76.45 
percent).\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Department Practice for Respondent Selection in Antidumping Duty 
Proceedings and Conditional Review of the Nonmarket Economy Entity

    \6\ The China-wide rate determined in the investigation was 
76.53 percent. See Drawn Stainless Steel Sinks from the People's 
Republic of China: Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than 
Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order, 78 FR 21592 (April 11, 2013). 
This rate was adjusted for export subsidies and estimated domestic 
subsidy pass through to determine the cash deposit rate (76.45 
percent) collected for companies in China-wide entity. See 
explanation in Drawn Stainless Steel Sinks from the People's 
Republic of China: Investigation, Final Determination, 78 FR 13019

eligibility for a separate rate and are considered to be part of the 
China-wide entity for these preliminary results.

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

    \13\ See 19 CFR 351.309; see also 19 CFR 351.303 (for general 
filing requirements); and Temporary Rule.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Commerce intends to issue the final results of this administrative 
review, which will include the results of its analysis of all issues 
raised in the case briefs, not later than 120 days after the date of 
publication of this notice, unless otherwise extended.\14\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \14\ See section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance completion of the administrative review, Commerce 
shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall 
assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this 
review.\15\ For the final results, if we continue to treat KaiPing and 
New Star as 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 KaiPing and New Star.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \15\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP no earlier 
than 35 days after the date of publication of the final results of this 
review in the Federal Register. If a timely summons is filed at the 
U.S. Court of International Trade, the assessment instructions will 
direct CBP not to liquidate relevant entries until the time for parties 
to file a request for a statutory injunction has expired (i.e., within 
90 days of publication).
    For the companies for which we have rescinded this administrative 
review, antidumping duties shall be assessed 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 directly to CBP no earlier than 35 days after the date of 
publication of this notice in the Federal Register.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise from China entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) 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; 
(2) for all Chinese exporters of subject merchandise that have not been 
found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be 
the rate for China-wide entity, 76.45 percent; and (3) 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

    This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of 
their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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 and/or countervailing 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)(l) and 777(i)(l) of the Act.

    Dated: August 25, 2021.
Christian Marsh,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
