Background

On October 10, 2019, Commerce published its Preliminary Results of the review of the antidumping duty order on wooden bedroom furniture (WBF) from the People's Republic of China (China) covering the period January 1, 2018 through December 31, 2018.[1] No parties commented on the Preliminary Results.

Scope of the Order

The product covered by the Order is wooden bedroom furniture, subject to certain exceptions.[2] Imports of subject merchandise are classified under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings: 9403.50.9042, 9403.50.9045, 9403.50.9080, 9403.90.7005, 9403.90.7080, 9403.50.9041, 9403.60.8081, 9403.20.0018, 9403.90.8041, 7009.92.1000 or 7009.92.5000. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written product description in the order remains dispositive. For a complete description of the scope of the Order, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.[3]

Analysis

In the Preliminary Results, Commerce determined that the following four companies had no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR: (1) Sunforce Furniture (Hui-Yang) Co., Ltd., Sun Fung Wooden Factory, Sun Fung Co., Shin Feng Furniture Co., Ltd., Stupendous International Co., Ltd.; (2) Eurosa (Kunshan) Co., Ltd. and Eurosa Furniture Co., (PTE) Ltd.; (3) Shenyang Shining Dongxing Furniture Co., Ltd.; and (4) Yeh Brothers World Trade Inc.[4] No parties commented on the Preliminary Results. In these final results of review, we are adopting the decisions in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, and continue to find that the four companies listed above had no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR.

Because no party requested a review of the China-wide entity, we are not conducting a review of that entity [5] and have not changed the antidumping duty cash deposit rate for the China-wide entity. The existing antidumping duty cash deposit rate for the China-wide entity is 216.01 percent.

For additional details, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, which is a public document and is on file electronically via Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS). ACCESS is available to registered users at http://access.trade.gov and in the Central Records Unit, room B8024 of the main Commerce building. In addition, a complete version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly at http://enforcement.trade.gov/​frn/​index.html. The signed and the electronic versions of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical in content.

Assessment Rates

Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.212(b), Commerce has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of this review. Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final results of this review. Pursuant to Commerce's practice in non-market economy cases, if there are any suspended entries of subject merchandise during the POR under the case numbers of the four companies that claimed no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR, they will be liquidated at the China-wide rate.[6]

Cash Deposit Requirements

The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for shipments of Start Printed Page 7732subject merchandise from China entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date in the Federal Register of the final results of this review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rates for the four companies listed above, which had no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR, will continue to be the existing cash deposit rates for those companies; (2) for previously investigated or reviewed China and non-China exporters which are not under review in this segment of the proceeding but which received a separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing exporter-specific rate; (3) for all China exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate for the China-wide entity, which is 216.01 percent; and (4) for all non-China exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own cash deposit rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the China exporter that supplied that non-China exporter.

These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to 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 antidumping duty administrative review is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213 and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5).
