Based on the record of this review to date, we determine that the use of the weighted–average profit rate of the LTFV respondents is a reasonable method for the following reasons. First, the products sold by the other respondents in their respective third– country markets are substantially similar to those sold by Studmark (i.e., sales of frozen, head–off, uncooked shrimp). Second, the CV profit rate for the LTFV respondents excludes sales to the United States. Third, the LTFV respondents sold to distributor/ wholesalers similar to Studmark’s U.S. customer (i.e., they had the same type of customer base). We note that the weighted–average CV profit rate calculated for the LTFV respondents covers a time frame that is not contemporaneous with the POR. The LTFV investigation period was from October 1, 2002, through September 30, 2003, while the instant POR is August 4, 2004, through July 31, 2005. However, there is no other CV profit data available that meets the other criteria and is contemporaneous with the POR, and there is no information currently on the record to indicate that the difference in the time periods is distortive. In addition, the Department verified the LTFV respondents’ third– country market information and ascertained the reliability of the data. Currency Conversion As Studmark reported its prices, expenses, and costs in U.S. dollars, no currency conversions were required in our margin calculations. wwhite on PROD1PC61 with NOTICES Preliminary Results of New Shipper Review As a result of our review, we preliminarily determine that the following percentage margin exists for Studmark for the period August 4, 2004, through July 31, 2005: results, or the first working day thereafter. Interested parties may submit case briefs no later than 30 days after the date of publication of these preliminary results. See 19 CFR 351.309(c)(ii). Rebuttal briefs limited to issues raised in such briefs may be filed no later than 35 days after the date of publication of the preliminary results. See 19 CFR 351.309(d). Parties who submit arguments are requested to submit with the argument (1) a statement of the issue and (2) a brief summary of the argument. Further, parties submitting briefs are requested to provide the Department with an additional copy of the public version of any such briefs on diskette. The Department will issue the final results of this review, which will include the results of its analysis of issues raised in any such comments, or at a hearing, if requested, within 90 days of publication of these preliminary results. Assessment Rate If these preliminary results are adopted in our final results of review, the Department shall determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. Upon completion of this review, the Department will issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP within 15 days of publication of the final results of this administrative review. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b), the Department calculated an assessment rate for the importer of subject merchandise based on the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sale, to the total entered value of the examined sale. Where the assessment rate is above de minimis, the importer– specific rate will be assessed uniformly on all entries made during the POR.

Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing duties occurred and the subsequent increase in antidumping duties by the amount of antidumping and/or countervailing duties reimbursed. This new shipper review is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(2)(B) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: June 9, 2006. David M.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On October 3, 2005, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
initiated and the International Trade Commission (ITC) instituted the 
second sunset review of the antidumping duty order on gray portland 
cement and cement clinker from Japan, pursuant to section 751(c) of the 
Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). See Initiation of Five-year 
(``Sunset'') Reviews, 70 FR 57560 (October 3, 2005); Institution of 
Five-year Reviews concerning the Antidumping Duty Orders on Gray 
Portland Cement and Cement Clinker from Japan and Mexico, 70 FR 57617 
(October 3, 2005). As a result of its review, the Department found that 
revocation of the antidumping duty order would be likely to lead to 
continuation or recurrence of dumping and notified the ITC of the 
magnitude of the margins likely to prevail were the order to be 
revoked. See Gray Portland Cement and Clinker from Japan; Final Results 
of the Expedited Sunset Review of the Antidumping Duty Order, 71 FR 
6268 (February 7, 2006). On May 26, 2006, the ITC determined pursuant 
to section 751(c) of the Act that revocation of the antidumping duty 
orders on gray portland cement and cement clinker from Japan would be 
likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an 
industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time. See 
Gray Portland Cement and Cement Clinker from Japan, 71 FR 32127 (June 
2, 2006), and ITC Publication 3856 (May 2006), entitled Gray Portland 
Cement and Cement Clinker from Japan: Investigation No. 731-TA-461 
(Second Review).

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by this order are cement and cement clinker 
from Japan. Cement is a hydraulic cement and the primary component of 
concrete. Cement clinker, an intermediate material produced when 
manufacturing cement, has no use other than grinding into finished 
cement. Microfine cement was specifically excluded from the antidumping 
duty order. Cement is currently classifiable under the Harmonized 
Tariff Schedule (HTS) item number 2523.29, and cement clinker is 
currently classifiable under HTS item number 2523.10. Cement has also 
been entered under HTS item number 2523.90 as ``other hydraulic 
cements.'' The Department made two scope rulings regarding subject 
merchandise. See Scope Rulings, 57 FR 19602 (May 7, 1992), classes G 
and H of oil well cement are within the scope of the order, and Scope 
Rulings, 58 FR 27542 (May 10, 1993), ``Nittetsu Super Fine'' cement is 
not within the scope of the order. The order remains in effect for all 
manufacturers, producers, and exporters of cement from Japan.
    The HTS item numbers are provided for convenience and customs 
purposes. The written product description remains dispositive as to the 
scope of the product coverage.

Determination

    As a result of the determinations by the Department and ITC that 
revocation of this antidumping duty order would be likely to lead to 
continuation or recurrence of dumping and material injury to an 
industry in the United States, pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the 
Act, the Department hereby orders the continuation of the antidumping 
duty order on gray portland cement and cement clinker from Japan.
    U.S. Customs and Border Protection will continue to collect 
antidumping duty cash deposits at the rates in effect at the time of 
entry for all imports of subject merchandise.
    The effective date of continuation of this order will be the date 
of publication in the Federal Register of this Notice of Continuation. 
Pursuant to sections 751(c)(2) and 751(c)(6) of the Act, the Department 
intends to initiate the next five-year review of this order not later 
than May 2011.
    These five-year (sunset) reviews and this notice are in accordance 
with section 751(c) of the Act.
