The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries for the above-named entities. For those companies for which this review has been rescinded, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from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 will issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP within 15 days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register.

In addition, the Department is rescinding this review with respect to the following entities which did not receive a separate rate in the prior segment (the less-than-fair-value investigation) of this proceeding. For purposes of initiation of this administrative review, the Department accepted requests for review of these entities based upon the premise that such entities would seek to demonstrate in this review that they were, in law and in fact, separate from the PRC-wide entity, and therefore, entitled to a rate separate from the rate established for the PRC-wide entity. However, as the requests for review of these entities have been withdrawn, these entities may be subject to this review as part of the single PRC-wide entity.\1\ Therefore, the Department will provide assessment instructions to CBP for these entities after the final results of this administrative review.

\1\ If one of the above-named companies does not qualify for a separate rate, all other exporters of wooden bedroom furniture from the PRC that have not qualified for a separate rate are deemed to be covered by this review as part of the single PRC entity of which the named exporter is a part.

This notice serves as a final reminder to importers 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 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, 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 in accordance with section 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4) of the Department's regulations.
