Diamond Sawblades Mfrs. Coalition v. United States, No. 06-00247, Slip Op. 09- 05 (CIT January 13, 2009) (``DSMC''). The case arises out of the ITC's final determination in the antidumping duty investigations. See {Investigations Nos. 731-TA-1092 and 1093 (Final){time} Diamond Sawblades and Parts Thereof From China and Korea, 71 FR 39128 (July 11, 2006) (``Final Determination''). The judgment in this case was not in harmony with the ITC's Final Determination. If the CIT's opinion in this case is not appealed, or is affirmed on appeal, then antidumping duty orders on diamond sawblades from the PRC and Korea will be issued.

Wooden Bedroom Furniture From the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative and New Shipper Reviews and Partial Rescission of Review
Document Number: E9-2675
Type: Notice
Date: 2009-02-09
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
In response to requests from interested parties, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on wooden bedroom furniture (``WBF'') from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). The period of review (``POR'') is January 1, 2007 through December 31, 2007. This administrative review covers multiple exporters of the subject merchandise, two of which are being individually reviewed as mandatory respondents. The Department is also conducting two new shipper reviews for exporters/producers. The POR for the new shipper reviews is also January 1, 2007, through December 31, 2007. We preliminarily determine that the mandatory respondents in the administrative review made sales in the United States at prices below normal value (``NV''). With respect to the remaining respondents in the administrative review, we preliminarily determine that 16 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 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.\1\ Further, we preliminarily determine that the remaining six respondents in the administrative review have not demonstrated that they are entitled to a separate rate, and thus are considered part of the PRC entity. Finally, we preliminarily determine that the new shippers have not made sales in the United States at less than NV. If these preliminary results are adopted in our final results of review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') to assess antidumping duties on entries of subject merchandise during the POR for which the importer-specific assessment rates are above de minimis.

The amendment requires the Secretary of Commerce to establish a program to provide earned import allowance certificates to any producer or entity controlling production of eligible apparel articles in the Dominican Republic, such that apparel wholly assembled in the Dominican Republic from fabric or yarns, regardless of their source, and imported directly from the Dominican Republic may enter the United States duty-free, pursuant to the satisfaction of the terms governing issuance of the earned import allowance certificate by the producer or entity controlling production of eligible apparel articles in the Dominican Republic.
