Analysis of Comments Received
Because no parties commented on the Preliminary Results, we have adopted the Preliminary Results as the final results, including the margin determined therein.
Final Results of Review
We find that the following weighted-average dumping margin exists for Yujia for the period January 1, 2010, through December 31, 2010:

|Exporter-Producer||Weighted-average margin (percent)|
|Dongguan Yujia Furniture Co., Ltd., Exporter/Producer||0.00|
Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final results of this review. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we are calculating importer- (or customer-) specific assessment rates for the merchandise subject to this review. We calculated importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem rates for Yujia by aggregating the dumping margins calculated for all U.S. sales to each importer (or customer) and dividing this amount by the total entered value of the sales to each importer (or customer). Where an importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem rate is greater than de minimis, we will apply the assessment rate to the entered value of the importers'/customers' entries during the period of review, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
Cash Deposit Requirements
The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this new shipper review for shipments of subject merchandise from Yujia entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for subject merchandise exported and produced by Yujia is zero; therefore no cash deposit will be required for entries of subject merchandise exported and produced by Yujia ; (2) for subject merchandise exported by Yujia but not produced by Yujia the cash deposit rate will continue to be the PRC-wide rate of 216.01 percent; (3) for subject merchandise produced by Yujia but not exported by Yujia the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the exporter. These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.
Notification of Interested Parties
This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) 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 presumption that reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (“APOs”) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under 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 that is subject to sanction.
This notice of the final results of this new shipper review is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(2)(B), 751(a)(2)(C), and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(h) and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5).
