ITA publishes exclusions from Chinese-made wooden bedroom order

Items include desk console tables, TV cabinets with a minibar, trunk storage units and upholstered beds

WASHINGTON – The International Trade Administration has recently published scope rulings that have determined certain items are exempt from antidumping duties on Chinese- made wooden bedroom furniture.

In a notice published in the Federal Register June 9, the ITA said that a desk/console table with drawers (identified as excluded office furniture), a TV cabinet with a minibar (also found to have features not similar or consistent with bedroom furniture), a trunk storage unit (determined to be living room furniture) and a bed bench base (determined to be excluded seating furniture) are not covered by the scope of the Chinese-made wooden bedroom furniture order.

However, the scope ruling did determine that certain TV credenzas that double as a dresser and a console/custom dresser are covered by the order as they have features that are consistent with certain bedroom case pieces and also are suitable for storing clothing.

This ruling is related to an inquiry dating back to August 2017 that pertains to certain items imported from China by Aspects Furniture International Inc.

In addition, the June 9 scope ruling stated that seven upholstered platform beds imported by Zinus Inc. USA from Zinus (Xiamen) Inc. and Zinus (Zhangzhou) Inc. are also not covered by the order. According to the ITA, these items meet the scope exclusion for completely upholstered beds, a category that many importers continue to source from China as they are of a different construction and materials that wooden beds covered by the order.
