Wooden Bedroom Furniture From the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Intent To Rescind Review in Part
Document Number: 2011-3024
Type: Notice
Date: 2011-02-10
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, 2009 through December 31, 2009. This administrative review covers multiple exporters of the subject merchandise, one of which is being individually examined as a ``mandatory respondent.'' We have preliminarily determined that the mandatory respondent, Huafeng Furniture Group Co., Ltd. (``Huafeng''), made sales to the United States at prices below normal value (``NV''). Nine companies failed to provide separate rate information and thus did not demonstrate that they are entitled to a separate rate, and have been treated as part of the PRC-wide entity. Additionally, 31 separate rate applicants (including Huafeng) have demonstrated that they are entitled to a separate rate and have been assigned the dumping margin calculated for the mandatory respondent. 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. We invite interested parties to comment on these preliminary results. Parties who submit comments are requested to submit with each argument a statement of the issue and a brief summary of the argument. We intend to issue the final results of this review no later than 120 days from the date of publication of this notice.

Porcelain-on-Steel Cooking Ware from the People's Republic of China: Final Results of the Expedited Sunset Review of the Antidumping Duty Order
Document Number: 2011-3008
Type: Notice
Date: 2011-02-10
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
On October 1, 2010, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty order on porcelain-on-steel cooking ware (``POS cookware'') from the People's Republic of China (``PRC'') pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``Act''). See Initiation of Five-Year (``Sunset'') Review, 75 FR 60731 (October 1, 2010) (``Sunset Initiation''); see also Antidumping Duty Order; Porcelain-on-Steel Cooking Ware from the People's Republic of China, 51 FR 43414 (December 2, 1986) (``Order''). On October 18, 2010, Columbian Home Products, LLC (formerly General Housewares Corporation) (``Columbian''), the petitioner in the POS cookware investigation, notified the Department that it intended to participate in the sunset review. The Department did not receive a substantive response from any respondent party. Based on the notice of intent to participate and adequate response filed by the domestic interested party, and the lack of response from any respondent interested party, the Department conducted an expedited sunset review of the Order pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2). As a result of this sunset review, the Department finds that revocation of the Order would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping, at the levels indicated in the ``Final Results of Sunset Review'' section of this notice, infra.
Certain Hot-Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products From Brazil: Rescission of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review
Document Number: 2011-3007
Type: Notice
Date: 2011-02-10
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration

(COSIPA), the only producers/exporters subject to review, this notice also serves to rescind the entire administrative review.

Document Number: 2011-2761
Type: Rule
Date: 2011-02-10
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') is amending its regulation which governs the certification of factual information submitted to the Department by a person or his or her representative during antidumping (``AD'') and countervailing duty (``CVD'') proceedings. The amendments are intended to strengthen the current certification requirements. For example, these amendments revise the certification in order to identify to which document the certification applies, to identify to which segment of an AD/CVD proceeding the certification applies, to identify who is making the certification, and to indicate the date on which the certification was made. In addition, the amendments are intended to ensure that parties and their counsel are aware of potential consequences for false certifications. The Department is also requesting comments on this interim final rule.
