SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On September 2, 2014, the Department published in the Federal Register the final results of the 2012 new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on wooden bedroom furniture from the People's Republic of China.[1] Prior to that, on August 29, 2014, the Department disclosed to interested parties its calculations for the final results in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b). On September 2, 2014, the new shipper, Dongguan Chengcheng Furniture Co., Ltd., submitted a timely ministerial error allegation with respect to the Department's final results in the new shipper review.

Ministerial Error

A ministerial error, as defined in section 751(h) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”), includes “errors in addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical errors resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any other type of unintentional error which the Start Printed Page 57508administering authority considers ministerial.” [2] Dongguan Chengcheng Furniture Co., Ltd. alleges that the Department incorrectly identified it as “Dongguan Chengcheng Group Co., Ltd.” in the rate table for the final results of the new shipper review. Dongguan Chengcheng Furniture Co., Ltd. states that the Department used the correct name of the company, Dongguan Chengcheng Co., Ltd., in another part of the final results notice and, thus, it requests that the Department correct the name of the company in the final results rate table by eliminating the word “Group” from the company name.

After analyzing the ministerial error allegation, in accordance with section 751(h) of the Act, we agree that we incorrectly listed the name of the company in the final results of the new shipper review. However, we have not corrected the name in the manner requested by Dongguan Chengcheng Furniture Co., Ltd. The record shows that we initiated the new shipper review on Dongguan Chengcheng Furniture Co., Ltd. Moreover, company records submitted by the new shipper show that the company's name is “Dongguan Chengcheng Furniture Co., Ltd.” Thus, we have corrected the error by removing the word “Group” from the company name and replacing it with the word “Furniture” rather than simply removing the word “Group” as requested by Dongguan Chengcheng Furniture Co., Ltd. The correct name is in the table below:
