AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: On October 31, 2006, the United States Court of International Trade (``Court'') entered a stipulated judgment in the consolidated case of Dorbest Limited, et. al. v. United States, Consol. Ct. No. 05- cv-00003 (``Court Order''). This litigation arises out of the Department's Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Wooden Bedroom Furniture From the People's Republic of China, 69 FR 67313 (November 17, 2004) (``Final Determination''), as amended, 70 FR 329 (January 4, 2005) (``Amended Final Determination and Order''). The court case filed by Lacquer Craft Manufacturing Company Ltd. (``Lacquer Craft'') (Lacquer Craft Manufacturing Company Ltd. v. United States, Court No. 05-00083), was consolidated into the case filed by Dorbest Limited, et. al. (Court No. 05-00003). Pursuant to the Court's Order, Lacquer Craft's court case (Court No. 05-00083) has been severed from the consolidated litigation (Court No. 05-00003), and Lacquer Craft's claims against the government dismissed. Because the litigation in Lacquer Craft's case is now concluded, the Department is issuing an amended final determination in accordance with the Stipulated Judgement in this action.

DATES: Effective Date: November 20, 2006.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Eugene Degnan, AD/CVD Operations, Office 8, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington DC 20230; telephone (202) 482-0414.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On November 17, 2004, the Department published its notice of final determination in the investigation of wooden bedroom furniture from the PRC. See Final Determination. On January 4, 2005, the Department published its notice of amended final determination and antidumping duty order in the investigation on wooden bedroom furniture from the PRC. See Amended Final Determination and Order.

On March 4, 2005, Lacquer Craft filed its complaint with the Court with respect to the Department's Amended Final Determination and Order in Lacquer Craft Manufacturing Company, Ltd. v. United States, Ct. No. 05-00083. Lacquer Craft's court case was subsequently consolidated with court number 05-00003 on June 29, 2005. Pursuant to the Court's Order, Lacquer Craft's court case (Court No. 05-00083) was severed from the consolidated litigation (Court No. 05-00003), and Lacquer Craft's court case against the government was dismissed.

The Court Order further orders the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') to (i) exclude wooden bedroom furniture from the Amended Final Determination and Order when it is both produced and exported by Lacquer Craft,\1\ and (ii) amend the weighted-average dumping margin applied to respondents with separate-rate status \2\ to exclude Lacquer Craft from the calculation for subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the effective date of the Amended Final Determination resulting from the Court's stipulated judgment.

\1\ For purposes of this order, wooden bedroom furniture produced and exported by Lacquer Craft includes furniture produced and exported by any of Lacquer Craft Manufacturing Company Ltd.'s factories in the People's Republic of China, which currently are in Dong Guan (Lacquer Craft Manufacturing Company Ltd. (Dong Guan) and Zhejiang (Lacquer Craft Manufacturing Company Ltd. (Zhejiang)).

\2\ For purposes of this order, ``respondents with separate-rate status'' shall mean the non-mandatory respondents granted a separate rate by the Department in the underlying investigation of wooden bedroom furniture. Commerce's dumping margin applied to such respondents is calculated as the weighted-average of the rates of the mandatory respondents.

Amended Final Determination

Because all claims filed by Lacquer Craft against the Department have been dismissed, and because the litigation in Lacquer Craft's de- consolidated court case is concluded, we are now amending the Amended Final Determination and Order to reflect the results of the Court's Order. Lacquer Craft is excluded from the Order. The amended weighted- average rate applied to respondents with separate-rate status is 7.24 percent. The rate applied to the PRC-wide entity remains unchanged.

With the above revisions, the dumping margins for this Order are as follows:

* In the Final Determination, the Department inadvertently listed Tech Lane Wood Mfg. and Kee Jia Wood Mfg. separately in the weighted- average dumping margin chart, which may have led parties to conclude that these companies were entitled to a separate rate. This, in fact, is not the case. Subject merchandise produced/exported by Tech Lane Wood Mfg. and Kee Jia Wood Mfg. is subject to the PRC-wide rate.

Within five business days of publication of this notice, the Department will issue instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') to revise the cash deposit rates for the companies listed above that have a separate rate, effective as of the publication of this notice. Further, we will instruct CBP to liquidate all entries of subject merchandise produced and exported by Lacquer Craft, without regard to antidumping duties, because Lacquer Craft is excluded from the antidumping duty order.

This notice is published in accordance with sections 735(d) and 777(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended.

Dated: November 14, 2006. Stephen J. Claeys, Acting Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
