Postponement of Final Determination and Extension of Provisional Measures Section 735(a)(2) of the Act provides that a final determination may be postponed until not later than 135 days after the date of the publication of the preliminary determination if, in the event of an affirmative preliminary determination, a request for such postponement is made by exporters who account for a significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise, or in the event of a negative preliminary determination, a request for such postponement is made by the petitioner. Section 351.210(e)(2) of Commerce’s regulations requires that a request by exporters for postponement of the final determination be accompanied by a request for extension of provisional measures from a four-month period to a period not more than six months in duration. On August 5, 2021, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.210(e), GFCL requested that Commerce postpone the final determination and that provisional measures be extended to a period not to exceed six months.15 In accordance with section 735(a)(2)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(2)(ii) and (e)(2), because: (1) The preliminary determination is affirmative; (2) the requesting exporter accounts for a significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise; and (3) no compelling reasons for denial exist, Commerce is postponing the final determination and extending the provisional measures from a four-month period to a period not greater than six months. Accordingly, Commerce will make its final determination no later than 135 days after the date of publication of this preliminary determination. lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with NOTICES1 International Trade Commission Notification In accordance with section 733(f) of the Act, Commerce will notify the International Trade Commission (ITC) of its preliminary determination.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) is initiating a changed circumstances review (CCR) of the antidumping duty (AD) order on wooden cabinets and vanities and components thereof (cabinets) from the People’s Republic of China (China) and simultaneously issuing preliminarily results, finding that Goldenhome Living Co., Ltd., (Goldenhome) is the successor-in-interest to Xiamen Goldenhome Co., Ltd., (Xiamen Goldenhome).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Scope of the Investigation BILLING CODE 3510–DS–P [A–570–106] Background On April 21, 2020, we published in the Federal Register an AD order on cabinets from China, which included Xiamen Goldenhome.1 Pursuant to the Order, Commerce assigned Xiamen Goldenhome an AD cash deposit rate, adjusted for a subsidy offset, of 37.96 percent, based on the non-selected respondent rate.2 On July 19, 2021, Goldenhome informed Commerce that, as of October 9, 2020, Xiamen Goldenhome changed its name to ‘‘Goldenhome Living Co., Ltd.’’ 3 Goldenhome stated the change was in name only; all other former business operations remain unchanged.4 Goldenhome requested that Commerce conduct a CCR and find that Goldenhome is the successor-in-interest 1 See Wooden Cabinets and Vanities and Components Thereof from the People’s Republic of China: Antidumping Duty Order, 85 FR 22126 (April 21, 2020) (Order). 2 Id., 85 FR at 22127. 3 See Goldenhome’s Letter, ‘‘Wooden Cabinets and Vanities and Components Thereof from the People’s Republic of China; Request for Changed Circumstances Review (A–570–106),’’ dated July 19, 2021. 4 Id. at 1–2 and 4.

Scope of the Order The products covered by the Order are wooden cabinets and vanities that are for permanent installation (including floor mounted, wall mounted, ceiling hung or by attachment of plumbing), and wooden components thereof. For a complete description of the scope of the Order, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.8 Initiation of Changed Circumstances Review Section 751(b)(4)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.216(c) state that, ‘‘in the absence of good cause shown,’’ the Secretary of Commerce may not review a final AD or countervailing duty (CVD) determination less than 24 months after the date of publication of the notice of final determination or notice of suspension of an investigation. The final determination of the AD investigation of cabinets from China published on February 28, 2020.9 Goldenhome argues that good cause exists to ensure the appropriate cash deposit rate applies to Goldenhome’s entries and that Commerce previously found in similar situations that a name change, with no further changes in the company’s operations, constitutes good cause pursuant to 19 CFR 351.216(c) to initiate lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with NOTICES1 5 Id. 6 See Commerce’s Letter, ‘‘Supplemental Questionnaire Changed Circumstances Review Request Goldenhome Living Co., Ltd.

VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:33 Sep 01, 2021 Jkt 253001 a CCR.10 Therefore, we preliminarily find that good cause has been shown pursuant to 19 CFR 351.216(c) to initiate a CCR less than 24 months after the publication of the notice of final determination.11 Pursuant to section 751(b)(1)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.216(d), Commerce will conduct a CCR upon receipt of information concerning, or a request from, an interested party for a review of an AD order which shows changed circumstances sufficient to warrant a review of the order. We preliminarily find the information provided sufficient to warrant a CCR of the Order. Specifically, the information submitted by Goldenhome supporting its claim that Goldenhome is the successor-ininterest to Xiamen Goldenhome demonstrates changed circumstances sufficient to warrant such a review.12 In accordance with 751(b)(1)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.216(d), we are initiating a CCR based on the information contained in Goldenhome’s submission to determine whether Goldenhome is the successor-in-interest to Xiamen Goldenhome. Section 351.221(c)(3)(ii) of Commerce’s regulations permits Commerce to combine the notice of initiation of a CCR and the notice of preliminary results if Commerce concludes that expedited action is warranted.13 In this instance, because the record contains information necessary to make a preliminary finding, we find that expedited action is warranted and have combined the notice of initiation and the notice of preliminary results.14 10 See Good Cause Response at 2–3 (citing Bulk Aspirin from the People’s Republic of China; Initiation of Changed Circumstances Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 67 FR 39344 (June 7, 2002); Certain Circular Welded Non-Alloy Steel Pipe from the Republic of Korea; Initiation of Changed Circumstances Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 66 FR 12460 (February 27, 2001); and Notice of Initiation and Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review: Certain Passenger Vehicle and Light Truck Tires From the People’s Republic of China, 81 FR 44588 (July 8, 2018)).

While no one, or several, of these factors will necessarily provide a dispositive indication of succession, Commerce will generally consider one company to be the successor to another company if its resulting operations are essentially the same as those of its predecessor. Thus, if the evidence demonstrates that, with respect to the production and sale of the subject merchandise, the company, in its current form, operates as essentially the same business entity as the prior company, Commerce will assign the new company the cash deposit rate of its predecessor.15 In accordance with 19 CFR 351.216, we preliminarily determine that Goldenhome is the successor-in-interest to Xiamen Goldenhome. Record evidence, as submitted by Goldenhome, indicates that, based on the totality of the circumstances under Commerce’s successor-in-interest criteria, Goldenhome’s management and business relations are virtually identical to those of Xiamen Goldenhome before the name change with respect to the merchandise under review. Moreover, we preliminarily find that Goldenhome’s production facilities, supplier relationships, and customer base, regarding the merchandise under review, are substantially the same as Xiamen Goldenhome before the name change. For the complete successor-ininterest analysis, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Should the final results of review remain the same as these preliminary results of review, effective the date of publication of the final results of review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to apply to entries of subject merchandise exported by Goldenhome the AD cash deposit rate applicable to Xiamen Goldenhome.

circumstances review (CCR) of the antidumping duty (AD) order on wooden 
cabinets and vanities and components thereof (cabinets) from the 
People's Republic of China (China) and simultaneously issuing

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On April 21, 2020, we published in the Federal Register an AD order 
on cabinets from China, which included Xiamen Goldenhome.\1\ Pursuant 
to the Order, Commerce assigned Xiamen Goldenhome an AD cash deposit 
rate, adjusted for a subsidy offset, of 37.96 percent, based on the 
non-selected respondent rate.\2\

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

    On July 19, 2021, Goldenhome informed Commerce that, as of October 
9, 2020, Xiamen Goldenhome changed its name to ``Goldenhome Living Co., 
Ltd.'' \3\ Goldenhome stated the change was in name only; all other 
former business operations remain unchanged.\4\ Goldenhome requested 
that Commerce conduct a CCR and find that Goldenhome is the successor-
in-interest

to Xiamen Goldenhome, and that it be subject to Xiamen Goldenhome's AD 
margin, pursuant to section 751(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.216(b).\5\ After finding Goldenhome 
did not address the good cause requirement in its initial request 
pursuant to 19 CFR 351.216(c), Commerce issued a letter to Goldenhome 
requesting it demonstrate good cause.\6\ On August 30, 2021, Goldenhome 
filed its response demonstrating good cause in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.216(c).\7\ We did not receive comments from other interested 
parties concerning this request.

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by the Order are wooden cabinets and vanities 
that are for permanent installation (including floor mounted, wall 
mounted, ceiling hung or by attachment of plumbing), and wooden 
components thereof. For a complete description of the scope of the 
Order, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.\8\

hereby adopted by this notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Initiation of Changed Circumstances Review

    Section 751(b)(4)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.216(c) state that, 
``in the absence of good cause shown,'' the Secretary of Commerce may 
not review a final AD or countervailing duty (CVD) determination less 
than 24 months after the date of publication of the notice of final 
determination or notice of suspension of an investigation. The final 
determination of the AD investigation of cabinets from China published 
on February 28, 2020.\9\ Goldenhome argues that good cause exists to 
ensure the appropriate cash deposit rate applies to Goldenhome's 
entries and that Commerce previously found in similar situations that a 
name change, with no further changes in the company's operations, 
constitutes good cause pursuant to 19 CFR 351.216(c) to initiate a 
CCR.\10\ Therefore, we preliminarily find that good cause has been 
shown pursuant to 19 CFR 351.216(c) to initiate a CCR less than 24 
months after the publication of the notice of final determination.\11\

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

    Pursuant to section 751(b)(1)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.216(d), 
Commerce will conduct a CCR upon receipt of information concerning, or 
a request from, an interested party for a review of an AD order which 
shows changed circumstances sufficient to warrant a review of the 
order. We preliminarily find the information provided sufficient to 
warrant a CCR of the Order. Specifically, the information submitted by 
Goldenhome supporting its claim that Goldenhome is the successor-in-
interest to Xiamen Goldenhome demonstrates changed circumstances 
sufficient to warrant such a review.\12\ In accordance with 
751(b)(1)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.216(d), we are initiating a CCR 
based on the information contained in Goldenhome's submission to 
determine whether Goldenhome is the successor-in-interest to Xiamen 
Goldenhome.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ See 19 CFR 351.216(d).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Section 351.221(c)(3)(ii) of Commerce's regulations permits 
Commerce to combine the notice of initiation of a CCR and the notice of 
preliminary results if Commerce concludes that expedited action is 
warranted.\13\ In this instance, because the record contains 
information necessary to make a preliminary finding, we find that 
expedited action is warranted and have combined the notice of 
initiation and the notice of preliminary results.\14\

Circumstances Reviews, 85 FR 14638 (March 13, 2020) (Passenger 
Vehicle and Light Truck Tires from China CCR).

Preliminary Results of Changed Circumstances Review

    In determining whether one company is the successor to another for 
AD purposes, Commerce examines several factors including, but not 
limited to, changes in: (1) Management; (2) production facilities; (3) 
suppliers; and (4) customer base. While no one, or several, of these 
factors will necessarily provide a dispositive indication of 
succession, Commerce will generally consider one company to be the 
successor to another company if its resulting operations are 
essentially the same as those of its predecessor. Thus, if the evidence 
demonstrates that, with respect to the production and sale of the 
subject merchandise, the company, in its current form, operates as 
essentially the same business entity as the prior company, Commerce 
will assign the new company the cash deposit rate of its 
predecessor.\15\

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.216, we preliminarily determine that 
Goldenhome is the successor-in-interest to Xiamen Goldenhome. Record 
evidence, as submitted by Goldenhome, indicates that, based on the 
totality of the circumstances under Commerce's successor-in-interest 
criteria, Goldenhome's management and business relations are virtually 
identical to those of Xiamen Goldenhome before the name change with 
respect to the merchandise under review. Moreover, we preliminarily 
find that Goldenhome's production facilities, supplier relationships, 
and customer base, regarding the merchandise under review, are 
substantially the same as Xiamen Goldenhome before the name change. For 
the complete successor-in-interest analysis, see the Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum.
    Should the final results of review remain the same as these 
preliminary results of review, effective the date of publication of the 
final results of review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection to apply to entries of subject merchandise exported by 
Goldenhome the AD cash deposit rate applicable to Xiamen Goldenhome.
