Assessment

The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries for the above-named entities. For those companies for which this review has been rescinded, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department will issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after the publication of this notice in the Federal Register.

In addition, the Department is rescinding this review with respect to the following entities which did not receive a separate rate in any completed prior segment of this proceeding. For purposes of initiation of this administrative review, the Department accepted requests for review of these entities based upon the premise that such entities would seek to demonstrate in this review that they were, in law and in fact, separate from the PRC-wide entity, and therefore, entitled to a rate separate from the rate established for the PRC-wide entity. However, as the requests for review of these entities have been withdrawn, these entities may be subject to this review as part of the single PRC-wide entity.[3] Therefore, the Department will provide assessment instructions to CBP for the PRC-wide entity, which includes the following companies, after the final results of this administrative review.

Engmost Investments Limited

Golden Well International (HK), Ltd.

Hainan Rulai Furniture Co., Ltd.

Huizhou Jadom Furniture Co., Ltd., Jadom Furniture Co., Ltd.

Kong Fong Furniture, Kong Fong Mao Iek Hong

Kunshan Junsen Furniture Co., Ltd.

Nathan China Group

Putian Ou Dian Furniture Co., Ltd.

Time Crown (U.K.) International Ltd., China United International Co.

The review will continue with respect to all other entities identified in the Initiation Notice.

Notification to Importers

This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary's assumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders (“APOs”)

This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to APOs of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under an APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return/destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to sanction.

This notice is in accordance with section 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4) of the Department's regulations.
