DOC Issues Amended Preliminary Determination in Antidumping Duty Investigation on Wooden Bedroom Furniture From China
Today the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) announced that it has amended the preliminary determination in the antidumping duty investigation of wooden bedroom furniture from the People's Republic of China (PRC). As a result of corrections made to address clerical errors in the preliminary determination, DOC has amended the antidumping margins for certain mandatory respondents and has preliminarily determined that certain Chinese producers/exporters are eligible for a 'separate rate.'
As a result of clerical errors made in the preliminary determination, the Department has revised the preliminary antidumping margin for three mandatory respondents as follows: (1) Rui Feng Woodwork Co., Ltd., Rui Feng Lumber Development Co., Ltd., and Dorbest Limited -- from 19.24% to 11.85%; (2) Starcorp Furniture (Shanghai) Co., Ltd., Orin Furniture (Shanghai) Co., Ltd., Shanghai Starcorp Furniture Co., Ltd.-- from 24.3% to 30.52%, and (3) Tech Lane Wood Mfg. And Kee Jia Wood Mfg. -- from 9.36% to 29.72%.
In addition, DOC has concluded that twenty companies were incorrectly denied separate rate status. Accordingly, the following companies will be assigned a preliminary margin of 10.92% rather than the PRC-wide rate of 198.08%: Alexandre International Corp., Art Heritage International Ltd., Chuan Fa Furniture Factory, Clearwise Company Limited, COE, Ltd., Dongguan Chunsan Wood Products Co., Ltd., Dongguan Hero Way Woodwork Co., Ltd., Dongguan Da Zhong Woodwork Co., Ltd., Dongguan Sunrise Furniture Co., Dream Rooms Furniture (Shanghai) Co., Ltd., Foshan Guanqiu Furniture Co., Ltd., Gaomi Yatai Wooden Ware Co., Ltd., Green River Wood (Dongguan) Ltd., Kuan Lin Furniture (Dong Guan) Co., Ltd., Longrange Furniture Co., Ltd., Passwall Corporation, Prime Wood International Co., Ltd. et al, Shenzhen Xiande Furniture Factory, Tianjin Master Home Furniture and Yida Co., Ltd.
