Multilayered wood flooring is often referred to by other terms, e.g., ‘‘engineered wood flooring’’ or ‘‘plywood flooring.’’ Regardless of the particular terminology, all products that meet the description set forth herein are intended for inclusion within the definition of subject merchandise. All multilayered wood flooring is included within the definition of subject merchandise, without regard to: dimension (overall thickness, thickness of face ply, thickness of back ply, thickness of core, and thickness of inner plies; width; and length); wood species used for the face, back and inner veneers; core composition; and face grade. Multilayered wood flooring included within the definition of subject merchandise may be unfinished (i.e., without a finally finished surface to protect the face veneer from wear and tear) or ‘‘prefinished’’ (i.e., a coating applied to the face veneer, including, but not exclusively, oil or oil-modified or water-based polyurethanes, ultraviolet light cured polyurethanes, wax, epoxy-ester finishes, moisture-cured urethanes and acid-curing formaldehyde finishes). The veneers may be also soaked in an acrylic-impregnated finish. All multilayered wood flooring is included within the definition of subject merchandise regardless of whether the face (or back) of the product is smooth, wire brushed, distressed by any method or multiple methods, or hand-scraped. In addition, all multilayered wood flooring is included within the definition of subject merchandise regardless of whether or not it is manufactured with any interlocking or connecting mechanism (for example, tongue-and-groove construction or locking joints). All multilayered wood flooring is included within the 4 See Yuhua, A-Timber, and Mullican’s Letter, ‘‘Letter in Lieu of Case Brief,’’ dated August 12, 2022 (Yuhua et al.’s Letter). 5 A ‘‘veneer’’ is a thin slice of wood, rotary cut, sliced or sawed from a log, bolt or flitch. Veneer is referred to as a ply when assembled. 6 Commerce Interpretive Note: Commerce interprets this language to refer to wood flooring products with a minimum of three layers.

That is, the exclusion would not apply to MLWF produced and/or exported by a Chinese entity other than Yuhua and sold through A-Timber. We will also instruct CBP to terminate any suspension of liquidation on MLWF produced and exported by Yuhua and sold through ATimber, and retroactively apply this determination to all unliquidated entries of such merchandise. We note that draft instructions to CBP were released to interested parties on July 28, 2022, and we received no comments.10 Accordingly, we intend to issue assessment instructions to CBP no sooner than 35 days after the date of publication of these final results. 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).

Scope of the Order

    Multilayered wood flooring is composed of an assembly of two or 
more layers or plies of wood veneer(s) \5\ in combination with a 
core.\6\ The several layers, along with the core, are glued or 
otherwise bonded together to form a final assembled product. 
Multilayered wood flooring is often referred to by other terms, e.g., 
``engineered wood flooring'' or ``plywood flooring.'' Regardless of the 
particular terminology, all products that meet the description set 
forth herein are intended for inclusion within the definition of 
subject merchandise.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ A ``veneer'' is a thin slice of wood, rotary cut, sliced or 
sawed from a log, bolt or flitch. Veneer is referred to as a ply 
when assembled.
    \6\ Commerce Interpretive Note: Commerce interprets this 
language to refer to wood flooring products with a minimum of three 
layers.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    All multilayered wood flooring is included within the definition of 
subject merchandise, without regard to: dimension (overall thickness, 
thickness of face ply, thickness of back ply, thickness of core, and 
thickness of inner plies; width; and length); wood species used for the 
face, back and inner veneers; core composition; and face grade. 
Multilayered wood flooring included within the definition of subject 
merchandise may be unfinished (i.e., without a finally finished surface 
to protect the face veneer from wear and tear) or ``prefinished'' 
(i.e., a coating applied to the face veneer, including, but not 
exclusively, oil or oil-modified or water-based polyurethanes, ultra-
violet light cured polyurethanes, wax, epoxy-ester finishes, moisture-
cured urethanes and acid-curing formaldehyde finishes). The veneers may 
be also soaked in an acrylic-impregnated finish. All multilayered wood 
flooring is included within the definition of subject merchandise 
regardless of whether the face (or back) of the product is smooth, wire 
brushed, distressed by any method or multiple methods, or hand-scraped. 
In addition, all multilayered wood flooring is included within the 
definition of subject merchandise regardless of whether or not it is 
manufactured with any interlocking or connecting mechanism (for 
example, tongue-and-groove construction or locking joints). All 
multilayered wood flooring is included within the definition of the 
subject merchandise regardless of whether the product meets a 
particular industry or similar standard.
    The core of multilayered wood flooring may be composed of a range 
of materials, including but not limited to hardwood or softwood veneer, 
particleboard, medium-density fiberboard, high-density fiberboard 
(HDF), stone and/or plastic composite, or strips of lumber placed edge-
to-edge.
    Multilayered wood flooring products generally, but not exclusively, 
may be in the form of a strip, plank, or other geometrical patterns 
(e.g., circular, hexagonal). All multilayered wood flooring products 
are included within this definition regardless of the actual or nominal 
dimensions or form of the product. Specifically excluded from the scope 
are cork flooring and bamboo flooring, regardless of whether any of the 
sub-surface layers of either flooring are made from wood. Also excluded 
is laminate flooring. Laminate flooring consists of a top wear layer 
sheet not made of wood, a decorative paper layer, a core-layer of HDF, 
and a stabilizing bottom layer.
    Imports of the subject merchandise are provided for under the 
following subheadings of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United

Final Results of Review

    Based on the comments received \8\ and finding no information or 
evidence on the record that calls into question the Preliminary 
Results, we continue to find that MLWF that is produced and exported by 
Yuhua and sold through A-Timber is excluded from the Order.\9\ 
Consequently, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) that when Yuhua is the producer and exporter of MLWF sold through 
(i.e., invoiced by) A-Timber, Yuhua's exclusion from the Order applies 
to entries of such merchandise. That is, the exclusion would not apply 
to MLWF produced and/or exported by a Chinese entity other than Yuhua 
and sold through A-Timber. We will also instruct CBP to terminate any 
suspension of liquidation on MLWF produced and exported by Yuhua and 
sold through A-Timber, and retroactively apply this determination to 
all unliquidated entries of such merchandise. We note that draft 
instructions to CBP were released to interested parties on July 28, 
2022, and we received no comments.\10\ Accordingly, we intend to issue 
assessment instructions to CBP no sooner than 35 days after the date of 
publication of these final results. 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).
