SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
:
Background
This preliminary determination is
made in accordance with section 733(b)
of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended
(the Act). Commerce published the
notice of initiation of this investigation
on April 2, 2019.
1
On August 5, 2019,
Commerce postponed the preliminary
determination of this investigation and
the revised deadline is now October 2,
2019.
2
For a complete description of the
events that followed the initiation of
this investigation, see the Preliminary
Decision Memorandum.
3
A list of topics
included in the Preliminary Decision
Memorandum is included as Appendix
II to this notice. The Preliminary
Decision Memorandum 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 https://
access.trade.gov, and to all parties 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/. The signed and the electronic
versions of the Preliminary Decision
Memorandum are identical in content.
Scope of the Investigation
The product covered by this
investigation is wooden cabinets and
vanities from China. For a complete
description of the scope of this
investigation, see Appendix I.
Scope Comments
In accordance with the preamble to
Commerce’s regulations,
4
the Initiation
Notice set aside a period of time for
parties to raise issues regarding product
coverage (scope).
5
Certain interested
parties commented on the scope of the
investigation as it appeared in the
Initiation Notice. For a summary of the
product coverage comments and
rebuttal responses submitted to the
record for this investigation, and
accompanying discussion and analysis
of all comments timely received, see the
Preliminary Scope Decision
Memorandum.

Commerce is
preliminarily modifying the scope
language as it appeared in the Initiation
Notice. See the revised scope in
Appendix I to this notice.
Methodology
Commerce is conducting this
investigation in accordance with section
731 of the Act. Commerce has
calculated export prices in accordance
with section 772(a) of the Act. Because
China is a non-market economy, within
the meaning of section 771(18) of the
Act, Commerce has calculated normal
value (NV) in accordance with section
773(c) of the Act. In addition, pursuant
to section 776(a) and (b) of the Act,
Commerce preliminarily has relied on
facts otherwise available, with adverse
inferences, for Dalian Meisen
Woodworking Co., Ltd. (Meisen), certain
separate rate applicants, and the China-
wide entity. For a full description of the
methodology underlying Commerce’s
preliminary determination, see the
Preliminary Decision Memorandum.
Combination Rates
In the Initiation Notice,
7
Commerce
stated that it would calculate producer/
exporter combination rates for the
respondents that are eligible for a
separate rate in this investigation. Policy
Bulletin 05.1 describes this practice.
8
In
this investigation, we calculated
producer/exporter combination rates for
respondents eligible for separate rates.
Preliminary Determination
Commerce preliminarily determines
that the following estimated weighted-
average dumping margins exist:
