[Investigation No. 731-TA-1058 (Final)]

Wooden Bedroom Furniture From China


    On the basis of the record \1\ developed in the subject 
investigation, the United States International Trade Commission 
(Commission) determines, pursuant to section 735(b) of the Tariff Act 
of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1673d(b)) (the Act), that an industry in the United 
States is materially injured by reason of imports from China of wooden 
bedroom furniture, provided for in subheadings 9403.50.90 and 
7009.92.50 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, that 
have been found by the Department of Commerce (Commerce) to be sold in 
the United States at less than fair value (LTFV).

    \1\ The record is defined in sec. 207.2(f) of the Commission's 
Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 207.2(f)).


    The Commission instituted this investigation effective October 31, 
2003, following receipt of a petition filed with the Commission and 
Commerce by the American Furniture Manufacturers Committee for Legal 
Trade and its individual members; the Cabinet Makers, Millmen, and 
Industrial Carpenters, Local 721; the UBC Southern Council of 
Industrial Workers, Local 2305; the United Steelworkers of America, 
Local 193U; the Carpenters Industrial Union, Local 2093; the Teamsters, 
Chauffeurs, Warehousemen and Helpers, Local 991; and the IUE, 
Industrial Division of the CWA, Local 82472.
    The final phase of the investigation was scheduled by the 
Commission following notification of a preliminary determination by 
Commerce that imports of wooden bedroom furniture from China were being 
sold at LTFV within the meaning of section 733(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 
1673b(b)). Notice of the scheduling of the final phase of the 
Commission's investigation and of a public hearing to be held in 
connection therewith was given by posting copies of the notice in the 
Office of the Secretary, U.S. International Trade Commission, 
Washington, DC, and by publishing the notice in the Federal Register of 
July 15, 2004 (69 FR 42452). The hearing was held in Washington, DC, on 
November 9, 2004, and all persons who requested the opportunity were 
permitted to appear in person or by counsel.
    The Commission transmitted its determination in this investigation 
to the Secretary of Commerce on December 22, 2004. The views of the 
Commission are contained in USITC Publication 3743 (December 2004),
