On February 9, 2007, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') published its preliminary results in the antidumping duty administrative review and new shipper reviews and notice of partial rescission for wooden bedroom furniture from the People's Republic of China. The period of review (``POR'') for the administrative review and the new shipper reviews is June 24, 2004 through December 31, 2005. For the final results of administrative review, see this notice. As a result of an inadvertent error, the version of this notice released on Wednesday, August 8, 2007, contained the appendix from the investigation of this proceeding, rather than the appendix intended for this administrative review. These amended final results correct this error. No changes to the analysis, methodologies employed, or the rates calculated were made. Because this error was discovered prior to publication in the Federal Register, this amendment is being published in place of the original version released on August 8, 2007. In the administrative review, we have determined that all five mandatory respondents (i.e., Fine Furniture (Shanghai) Limited and its affiliates (``Fine Furniture''); Foshan Guanqiu Furniture Co., Ltd. (``Foshan Guanqiu''); Fujian Lianfu Forestry Co./Fujian Wonder Pacific Inc./Fuzhou Huan Mei Furniture Co., Ltd./Jiangsu Dare Furniture Co., Ltd. (``Dare Group''); Shanghai Aosen Furniture Co., Ltd. (``Shanghai Aosen'') and Shanghai Starcorp Furniture Co., Ltd, Starcorp Furniture (Shanghai) Co., Ltd., Orin Furniture (Shanghai) Co., Ltd., Shanghai Star Furniture Co., Ltd., and Shanghai Xing Ding Furniture Industrial Co., Ltd. (collectively, ``Starcorp'')) made sales in the United States at prices below normal value. With respect to the remaining respondents in the administrative review (collectively, ``Separate Rate Applicants''), we have determined that 42 entities have provided sufficient evidence that they are separate from the state-controlled entity, and we have established a weighted-average margin based on the rates we have calculated for the five mandatory respondents, excluding any rates that are zero, de minimis, or based entirely on adverse facts available, to be applied to these separate-rate entities. We invited interested parties to comment on our preliminary results of review. For the new shipper reviews, the Department also reviewed two exporters/ producers, i.e., Dongguan Huanghouse Furniture Co., Ltd. (``Huanghouse'') and Tianjin First Wood Co., Ltd. (``First Wood''). Based on our analysis of the comments we received, we have made certain changes to our calculations for all mandatory respondents. The final dumping margins for this review are listed in the ``Final Results Margins'' section below.
