SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

The Department received timely requests, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), for an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on wooden bedroom furniture from the PRC (administrative review of wooden bedroom furniture) covering multiple entities. The Department is now initiating an administrative review of the order covering those entities.

Notice of No Sales

Under 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), the Department may rescind a review where there are no exports, sales, or entries of subject merchandise during the relevant period of review (POR) listed below. If a producer or exporter named in this notice of initiation had no exports, sales, or entries during the POR, it should notify the Department of this fact by the due date for responding to the Department's Quantity and Value Questionnaire (“Q&V”). See http://ia.ita.doc.gov/​download/​prc-wbf/​index.html for a copy of the Q&V questionnaire. The Department will consider rescinding the review only if the producer or exporter, as appropriate, submits a properly filed and timely statement certifying that it had no exports, sales, or entries of subject merchandise during the POR.[1] All submissions must be made in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303 and are subject to verification in accordance with section 782(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Six copies of the submission should be submitted to the Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, International Trade Administration, Room 1870, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20230. Further, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303(f)(1)(i), a copy of each request must be served on every party on the Department's service list.

Respondent Selection

Section 777A(c)(1) of the Act directs the Department to calculate individual Start Printed Page 8777dumping margins for each known exporter and producer of the subject merchandise. Where it is not practicable to examine all known producers/exporters of subject merchandise, section 777A(c)(2)(B) of the Act permits the Department to examine exporters and producers accounting for the largest volume of the subject merchandise from the exporting country that can be reasonably examined. Due to the large number of firms for which an administrative review of wooden bedroom furniture has been requested, and the Department's experience regarding the resulting administrative burden of reviewing each company for which a request has been made, the Department is considering exercising its authority to limit the number of respondents selected for review in accordance with the Act.

In the event that the Department limits the number of respondents for individual examination in the administrative review of wooden bedroom furniture, the Department intends to select respondents based on information obtained from the companies requested for review regarding their exports or shipments to the United States of wooden bedroom furniture during the period January 1, 2008, through December 31, 2008. Therefore, in advance of the issuance of the antidumping questionnaire, we will be requiring all parties for whom a review has been requested to respond to a Q&V questionnaire. The Department will send Q&V questionnaires to the companies named in this initiation notice. In addition, the Q&V questionnaire will be available on the Department's website at http://ia.ita.doc.gov/​download/​rc-wbf/​index.html on the date of publication of this notice. The responses to the Q&V questionnaire must be received by the Department by the due date listed in the questionnaire. Please be advised that due to the time constraints imposed by the statutory and regulatory deadlines for antidumping duty administrative reviews, the Department may not grant any extensions for the submission of responses to the Q&V questionnaire.

Separate Rates

In proceedings involving non-market economy (NME) countries, the Department begins with a rebuttable presumption that all companies within the country are subject to government control and, thus, should be assigned a single antidumping duty deposit rate. It is the Department's policy to assign all exporters of merchandise subject to an administrative review in an NME country this single rate unless an exporter can demonstrate that it is sufficiently independent so as to be entitled to a separate rate.

To establish whether a firm is sufficiently independent from government control of its export activities to be entitled to a separate rate, the Department analyzes each entity exporting the subject merchandise under a test arising from the Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Sparklers from the People's Republic of China, 56 FR 20588 (May 6, 1991), as amplified by the Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Silicon Carbide from the People's Republic of China, 59 FR 22585 (May 2, 1994). In accordance with the separate-rates criteria, the Department assigns separate rates to companies in NME cases only if respondents can demonstrate the absence of both de jure and de facto government control over export activities.

All firms listed below that wish to qualify for separate-rate status in the antidumping duty administrative review of wooden bedroom furniture from the PRC must timely file a Q&V questionnaire response, and timely file, as appropriate, either a separate-rate application or certification, as described below. Entities for which a review was requested and that were assigned a separate rate in the most recently completed segment of this proceeding in which they participated must timely file a Q&V questionnaire response and certify that they continue to meet the criteria for obtaining a separate rate. The Separate-Rate Certification Form will be available on the Department's website at http://ia.ita.doc.gov/​nme/​nme-sep-rate.html on the date of publication of this Federal Register notice. In responding to the certification, please follow the “Instructions for Filing the Certification” in the Separate-Rate Certification. Separate-Rate Certifications must be received by the Department no later than 30 calendar days after publication of this Federal Register notice. The deadline and requirement for submitting a Certification applies equally to NME-owned firms, wholly foreign-owned firms, and foreign sellers who purchase and export subject merchandise to the United States.

Entities that currently do not have a separate rate from a completed segment of this proceeding must timely file a Q&V questionnaire response and a Separate-Rate Status Application to demonstrate eligibility for a separate rate in this proceeding. The Separate-Rate Status Application will be available on the Department's website at http://ia.ita.doc.gov/​nme/​nme-sep-rate.html on the date of publication of this Federal Register notice. In responding to the Separate Rate-Status Application, refer to the instructions contained in the application. Separate-Rate Status Applications must be received by the Department no later than 60 calendar days after publication of this Federal Register notice. The deadline and requirement for submitting a Separate-Rate Status Application applies equally to NME-owned firms, wholly foreign-owned firms, and foreign sellers that purchase and export subject merchandise to the United States.

Notification

This notice constitutes public notification to all firms for which an administrative review of wooden bedroom furniture has been requested and that are seeking separate rate status in that review, that they must submit a Separate-Rate Status Application or Certification (as appropriate) as described above, and a complete response to the Q&V questionnaire within the time limits established in this notice of initiation of administrative review in order to receive consideration for separate-rate status. In other words, the Department will not give consideration to any Separate-Rates Certification or Separate-Rate Status Application made by parties who fail to timely respond to the Q&V questionnaire or fail to timely submit the requisite Separate-Rate Certification or Application. All information submitted by respondents in this administrative review is subject to verification. Please be advised that due to the time constraints imposed by the statutory and regulatory deadlines for antidumping duty administrative reviews, the Department may not grant any extensions of the deadlines for these submissions. As noted above, the Separate-Rate Certification, the Separate-Rate Status Application, and the Q&V questionnaire will be available on the Department's website on the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. The Separate-Rate Certification and the Separate-Rate Status Application will be available on the Department's website at http://ia.ita.doc.gov/​nme/​nme-sep-rate.html. The Q&V questionnaire will be available on the Department's website at http://ia.ita.doc.gov/​download/​prc-wbf/​index.html.

In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), we are initiating an administrative review of the following antidumping duty order. We intend to Start Printed Page 8778issue the final results of this review not later than January 31, 2010.
