The merchandise covered by this investigation is uncovered innerspring units composed of a series of individual metal springs joined together in sizes corresponding to the sizes of adult mattresses (e.g., twin, twin long, full, full long, queen, California king, and king) and units used in smaller constructions, such as crib and youth mattresses. All uncovered innerspring units are included in this scope regardless of width and length. Included within this definition are innersprings typically ranging from 30.5 inches to 76 inches in width and 68 inches to 84 inches in length. Innersprings for crib mattresses typically range from 25 inches to 27 inches in width and 50 inches to 52 inches in length.

Uncovered innerspring units are suitable for use as the innerspring component in the manufacture of innerspring mattresses, including mattresses that incorporate a foam encasement around the innerspring. Pocketed and non–pocketed innerspring units are included in this definition. Non–pocketed innersprings are typically joined together with helical wire and border rods. Non–pocketed innersprings are included in this definition regardless of whether they have border rods attached to the perimeter of the innerspring.

Pocketed innersprings are individual coils covered by a ‘‘pocket’’ or ‘‘sock’’ of a nonwoven synthetic material or woven material and then glued together in a linear fashion.

Uncovered innersprings are classified under subheading 9404.29.9010 and have also been classified under subheadings 9404.10.0000, 7326.20.00.70, 7320.20.5010, or 7320.90.5010 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). The HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes only; the written description of the scope of this proceeding is dispositive.

All Vietnamese Producers of Uncovered Innerspring Units Subject to 116.31% Antidumping Duty Rate; Antidumping Duty Order Published by U.S. Department of Commerce

On December 11, 2008, the U.S. Department of Commerce published the antidumping duty order on uncovered innerspring units from Vietnam.  No Vietnamese company participated in the antidumping duty investigation.  Accordingly, based upon facts available adverse to Vietnamese manufacturers and exporters of uncovered innerspring units from Vietnam, the U.S. Department of Commerce assigned an antidumping duty rate of 116.31%.

U.S. imports of uncovered innerspring units from Vietnam are now subject to cash deposits of estimated antidumping duties equal to 116.31% of the entered value.  The cash deposits are due upon entry.
