SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On January 4, 2005, the Department published in the Federal Register the antidumping duty order on wooden bedroom furniture from the PRC.[1] On January 10, 2017, the Department published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the Order.[2] The Department received multiple timely requests for an administrative review of the Order.[3] On March 15, 2017, in accordance with section 751(a) of Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act) and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of the initiation of an administrative review of the Order.[4] The administrative review was initiated with respect to 80 companies or groups of companies, and covers the period from January 1, 2016, through December 31, 2016.[5] The requesting parties have subsequently timely withdrawn all review requests for 67 of the 80 companies or groups of companies for which the Department initiated a review, as discussed below.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 a 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 companies or groups of companies listed in the Appendix to this notice within 90 days of the date of publication of the Initiation Notice. Accordingly, the Department is rescinding this review, in part, with respect to these companies for which all review requests were withdrawn, in accordance with our practice [6] and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).[7] The administrative review will continue with respect to all other firms for which a review was requested and initiated.

Assessment

The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For the companies for which this review is rescinded, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from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 directly to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice.

Notification to Importers

This notice serves as the only reminder to importers whose entries will be liquidated as a result of this rescission notice, 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 assumption that the reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (APO) 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 or 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 sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).

As stated in Change in Practice in NME Reviews, the Department will no longer consider the non-market economy (NME) entity as an exporter conditionally subject to administrative reviews.

The PRC-wide entity is not subject to this administrative review because no interested party requested a review of the entity. See Initiation Notice.
