DOC postpones antidumping bedroom furniture deadlineWASHINGTON —

The Department of Commerce has postponed until Aug. 9 the results of its antidumping duty review of Chinese wooden bedroom furniture.

According to a July 13 Federal Register notice, the DOC determined "it was not practicable to complete the review within the 120-day time period because it requires additional time to consider the comments it received on May 25, 2011, concerning Zhangjiagang Zheng Ya Decoration Co. Ltd."

The review of the antidumping order was issued in March 2010, and covered Chinese wooden bedroom furniture sold throughout 2009 (75 FR 9869). Preliminary results were published in the Federal Register Feb. 10, 2011 (76 FR 7534) and final results were originally due by July 11. The Chinese furniture companies under review could face retroactive tarriffs ranging from 16 percent to over 200 percent, with some companies qualifying for a separate rate (see companies astericked on linked list).
