of wooden bedroom furniture in an unassembled, incomplete, or 
unfinished form.
    \19\ Upholstered beds that are completely upholstered, i.e., 
containing filling material and completely covered in sewn genuine

of China: Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review and 
Determination to Revoke Order in Part, 74 FR 8506 (February 25, 
2009). Further, as determined in the scope ruling memorandum, 
``Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People's Republic of China: 
Scope Ruling on a White Toy Box,'' dated July 6, 2009, the 
dimensional ranges used to identify the toy boxes that are excluded 
from the Order apply to the box itself rather than the lid.
    \21\ Excluded from the scope are certain enclosable wall bed 
units, also referred to as murphy beds, which are composed of the 
following three major sections: (1) a metal wall frame, which 
attaches to the wall and uses coils or pistons to support the metal 
mattress frame; (2) a metal frame, which has euro slats for 
supporting a mattress and two legs that pivot; and (3) wood panels, 
which attach to the metal wall frame and/or the metal mattress frame 
to form a cabinet to enclose the wall bed when not in use. Excluded 
enclosable wall bed units are imported in ready to assemble format 
with all parts necessary for assembly. Enclosable wall bed units do 
not include a mattress. Wood panels of enclosable wall bed units, 
when imported separately, remain subject to the Order.
    \22\ Excluded from the scope are certain shoe cabinets 31.5-33.5 
inches wide by 15.5-17.5 inches deep by 34.5-36.5 inches high. They 
are designed strictly to store shoes, which are intended to be 
aligned in rows perpendicular to the wall along which the cabinet is 
positioned. Shoe cabinets do not have drawers, rods, or other 
indicia for the storage of clothing other than shoes. The cabinets 
are not designed, manufactured, or offered for sale in coordinated 
groups or sets and are made substantially of wood, have two to four 
shelves inside them, and are covered by doors. The doors often have 
blinds that are designed to allow air circulation and release of bad 
odors. The doors themselves may be made of wood or glass. The depth 
of the shelves does not exceed 14 inches. Each shoe cabinet has 
doors, adjustable shelving, and ventilation holes
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Imports of subject merchandise are classified under subheadings 
9403.50.9042 and 9403.50.9045 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the 
United States (HTSUS) as ``wooden . . . beds'' and under subheading 
9403.50.9080 of the HTSUS as ``other . . . wooden furniture of a kind

footboards for beds, wooden side rails for beds, and wooden canopies 
for beds may be entered under subheadings 9403.90.7005 or 9403.90.7080 
of the HTSUS. Subject merchandise may also be entered under subheadings 
9403.50.9041, 9403.60.8081, 9403.20.0018, or 9403.90.8041. Further, 
framed glass mirrors may be entered under subheading 7009.92.1000 or 
7009.92.5000 of the HTSUS as ``glass mirrors . . . framed.'' The Order 
covers all wooden bedroom furniture meeting the above description, 
regardless of tariff classification. Although the HTSUS subheadings are 
provided for convenience and customs purposes, our written description 
of the scope of this proceeding is dispositive.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \23\ Excluded from the scope are certain bed bases consisting 
of: (1) a wooden box frame; (2) three wooden cross beams and one 
perpendicular center wooden support beam; and (3) wooden slats over 
the beams. These bed bases are constructed without inner springs 
and/or coils and do not include a headboard, footboard, side rails, 
or mattress. The bed bases are imported unassembled.
