SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

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).[1] On January 3, 2013, the Department published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the wooden bedroom furniture order.[2]

The Department received multiple timely requests for an administrative review of the wooden bedroom furniture order and on February 28, 2013, 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.[3] The administrative review was initiated with respect to 200 companies or groups of companies, and covers the period from January 1, 2012, through December 31, 2012. While there are a number of companies which remain under review, certain parties have timely withdrawn all review requests for a number of other companies, as discussed below.

Rescission of Review, in Part

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. All requesting parties withdrew their respective requests for an administrative review of the entities listed in Appendix I, within 90 days of the date of publication of the Initiation Notice. The entities listed in Appendix I had a separate rate granted in the most recently completed segment of this proceeding in which they were under review. Accordingly, the Department is rescinding this review, in part, with respect to these entities, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).[4]

Companies That Have Not Demonstrated Eligibility for a Separate Rate

In addition to the companies noted above, all review requests were timely withdrawn for other companies that are currently under review that either do not have a separate rate because they have never been reviewed or did not demonstrate eligibility for a separate rate in the most recently completed segment of this proceeding in which they were under review. Therefore, these companies will continue to be subject to the PRC-wide entity rate. While the requests for review of those companies were withdrawn by all parties, those withdrawn companies are part of the PRC-wide entity which could come under review in this segment of the proceeding. If the PRC-wide entity comes under review we will make a determination with respect to the PRC-wide entity at the final results. A complete list of these entities without separate rates is contained in Appendix II.

Assessment

For the entities in Appendix I for which the Department has rescinded this review and which had a separate rate granted in the most recently completed segment of this proceeding in which they were under review, the Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to U.S. Customs and Border Protection 15 days after the publication of this notice in the Federal Register. For these entities, antidumping duties shall be assessed on period of review entries 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).

For the entities in Appendix II, which are part of the PRC-wide entity during the instant review period (i.e., have not established their eligibility for a separate rate), the Department will issue assessment instructions 15 days after publication of the final results of this review.

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 the 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).
