Background

On January 4, 2005, the Department of Commerce (Department) published in the Federal Register the antidumping duty order on wooden bedroom furniture from the People's Republic of China (PRC) (furniture order). See Notice of Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order: Wooden Bedroom Furniture From the People's Republic of China, 70 FR 329 (January 4, 2005). On January 5, 2009, the Department published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the furniture order. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation: Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 74 FR 265 (January 5, 2009).

The Department received multiple timely requests for an administrative review of the furniture order and on February 26, 2009, in accordance with section 751(a) of Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), published in the Federal Register a notice of the initiation of an administrative review of that order. See Initiation of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 74 FR 8776 (February 26, 2009) (Initiation Notice). The review was initiated with respect to 200 companies or groups of companies, and covers the period from January 1, 2008, through December 31, 2008.

Partial Rescission of Review

Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party that requested the review withdraws its request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review.

The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For the companies listed above which had a separate rate granted in a previously completed segment of this proceeding that was in effect during the instant review period, antidumping duties shall be assessed on entries subject to the separate rate 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 intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions for such companies directly to CBP 15 days after the publication of this notice in the Federal Register. For any of the companies listed above that were part of the PRC-wide entity during the instant review period, the Department will issue assessment instructions on entries subject to the PRC-wide rate upon the completion of this administrative review.

In addition, pursuant to an injunction issued in Dorbest Ltd. v.

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 whose entries will be liquidated as a result of this rescission notice, 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(a)(3), 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 issued and published in accordance with section 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
