mandatory respondent, Decca Furniture Ltd. (Decca), and twelve other

    Commerce has exercised its discretion to toll deadlines for the 
duration of the closure of the Federal Government from January 20 
through 22, 2018. If the new deadline falls on a non-business day, in 
accordance with Commerce's practice, the deadline will become the next 
business day. The revised deadline for the final results of this review 
is now February 15, 2018.\2\

2018. All deadlines in this segment of the proceeding have been 
extended by 3 days.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    The product covered by the Order is wooden bedroom furniture, 
subject to certain exceptions.\3\ Based on a U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) ruling indicating that CBP would no longer use certain 
harmonized tariff schedule subheadings to classify items that are 
within the scope of the Order,\4\ Commerce preliminarily revised the 
scope to include the harmonized tariff schedule numbers under which 
subject merchandise is entered.\5\ No parties commented on this 
revision. Hence, we have adopted this revision in these final results. 
Under this revision, imports of subject merchandise are classified 
under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) 
subheadings: 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.\6\

Analysis

    As noted above, no parties commented on the Preliminary Results. 
Therefore, we are adopting the decisions in the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum for these final results of review. In the Preliminary 
Results, Commerce: (1) Determined that four companies, including Decca, 
did not establish their eligibility for a separate rate and are part of 
the China-wide entity; \7\ (2) determined that eight companies had no 
shipments of subject merchandise; \8\ and (3) rescinded the review for 
Nanhai Jiantai Woodwork Co., Ltd., Fortune Glory Industrial, Ltd. (HK 
Ltd.) (collectively, Fortune Glory), for whom all review requests were 
withdrawn.\9\ For these final results of review, we have continued to 
treat the four companies, including Decca, as part of the China-wide 
entity and have continued to find that eight companies had no shipments 
during the POR. Because no party requested a review of the China-wide 
entity, we are not conducting a review of the China-wide entity.\10\ 
Thus, there is no change to the rate for the China-wide entity from the 
Preliminary Results. The existing rate

[[Page 6516]]

for the China-wide entity is 216.01 percent.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ The other three companies are: (1) Changshu HTC Import & 
Export Co., Ltd.; (2) Starwood Industries Ltd.; and (3) U-Rich 
Furniture (Zhangzhou) Co., Ltd.; U-Rich Furniture Ltd.
    \8\ The eight companies/company groupings are: (1) Dongguan 
Sunrise Furniture Co., Taicang Sunrise Wood Industry, Co., Ltd., 
Shanghai Sunrise Furniture Co., Ltd., Fairmont Designs; (2) Dongguan 
Sunrise Furniture Co., Taicang Sunrise Wood Industry, Co., Ltd., 
Taicang Fairmont Designs Furniture Co., Ltd., Meizhou Sunrise 
Furniture Co., Ltd.; (3) Eurosa (Kunshan) Co., Ltd.; Eurosa 
Furniture Co., (PTE) Ltd.; (4) Golden Well International (HK) 
Limited; Zhangzhou Xym Furniture Product Co., Ltd.; (5) RiZhao Sanmu 
Woodworking Co., Ltd.; (6) Shenyang Shining Dongxing Furniture Co., 
Ltd.; (7) Woodworth Wooden Industries (Dong Guan) Co., Ltd.; and (8) 
Yeh Brothers World Trade Inc.

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the Act), and 19 CFR 351.212(b), the Department has determined, and 
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. 
Commerce intends to instruct CBP to liquidate any entries of subject 
merchandise exported during this POR by Decca and the other three 
companies noted above which did not qualify for separate rate status, 
at the China-wide rate.
    Additionally, pursuant to Commerce's practice in NME cases, if 
there are any suspended entries of subject merchandise during the POR 
under the case numbers of the eight companies that claimed no shipments 
of subject merchandise, they will be liquidated at the China-wide 
rate.\11\

Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties,

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for 
shipments of subject 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) 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; (2) 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 (3) for all non-China 
exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own 
rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the Chinese 
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).

    Dated: January 24, 2018.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
