Rescission of the Fairmont Group

Dongguan Sunrise Furniture Co., Taicang Sunrise Wood Industry Co., Ltd., Shanghai Sunrise Furniture Co., Ltd., Fairmont Designs, Meizhou Sunrise Furniture Co., Ltd. (collectively, the Fairmont Group) withdrew its request for an administrative review after the 90-day deadline established by 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). However, 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1) further states that the Secretary may extend this time limit if the Secretary finds it reasonable to do so. Although the Fairmont Group withdrew its review request after the 90-day deadline, the Department finds it reasonable to extend the deadline for parties to withdraw their request for review with respect to the Fairmont Group because the Department has not yet committed substantial resources to reviewing the Fairmont Group in the instant review and because all parties who requested the review have subsequently withdrawn their requests. Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are rescinding this review of the antidumping duty order, with respect to the Fairmont Group.

Assessment

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 do not currently have a separate rate (and thus remain a part of the PRC-wide entity), the Department will issue assessment instructions upon the completion of this administrative review. The companies from the above list for which the Department will not issue assessment instructions until the completion of the instant review are as follows:

  • C.F. Kent Co., Inc.
  • C.F. Kent Hospitality, Inc.
  • Contact Co., Ltd.
  • Denny's Furniture Associates Corp.
  • Denny's International Co., Ltd.
  • Der Cheng Furniture Co., Ltd.
  • Der Cheng Wooden Works
  • DongGuan Sundart Timber Products Co., Ltd.

In addition, pursuant to an injunction issued in Dorbest Ltd. v. United States, CIT No. 05-0003, on June 3, 2008, the Department must continue to suspend liquidation of entries exported by Dorbest Limited., Rui Feng Woodwork (Dongguan) Co., Ltd., and Rui Feng Lumber Development (Shenzen) Co., Ltd. on or after January 1, 2008, pending a conclusive court decision.

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.Start Printed Page 54857
