Initiation and Amended Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

EFFECTIVE DATE: September 19, 2006.

Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and 
Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone (202) 482-
4136 and (202) 482-3773, respectively.

Background

    On April 7, 2006, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published in the Federal Register its initiation of the antidumping 
duty administrative review of certain frozen warmwater shrimp from 
Ecuador for the period August 4, 2004, through January 31, 2006. See 
Notice of Initiation of Administrative Reviews of the Antidumping Duty 
Orders on Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Brazil, Ecuador, India 
and Thailand, 71 FR 17819 (April 7, 2006) (Initiation Notice). We 
initiated a review for Exporklore Exports & Representacion, based on a 
request for review from the petitioners, the Ad Hoc Shrimp Trade Action 
Committee. Exporklore, S.A. (Exporklore) also requested a review of its 
sales, but this company name was inadvertently omitted from the 
Initiation Notice. The Department subsequently confirmed that the 
correct name for Exporklore Exports & Representacion is Exporklore, 
S.A. To correct the omission of the company name Exporklore, S.A. from 
the Initiation Notice, we are now issuing this notice of amended 
initiation of the 2004-2006 antidumping duty administrative review of 
certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Ecuador as noted above. As a 
result of this correction, we are initiating the 2004-2006 
administrative review with respect to Exporklore, S.A.
    Although we are now amending our initiation notice to include 
Exporklore, S.A., the Department is not conducting a review of 
Exporklore's sales in this administrative review because on June 30, 
2006, Exporklore filed a timely request for the withdrawal of its 
requested review. Because of this withdrawal request, on July 20, 2006, 
the Department published in the Federal Register its notice of partial 
rescission. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Ecuador; Partial 
Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 71 FR 41198 (July 
20, 2006) (Partial Rescission). Our amended initiation notice does not 
supercede the prior rescission of Exporklore in the Partial Rescission 
notice issued on July 20, 2006.
    On June 30, 2006, the petitioners withdrew their administrative 
review request with respect to Exporklore Exports & Representacion. 
However, we inadvertently omitted this company name from the Partial 
Rescission. Therefore, we are now issuing this notice of amended 
partial rescission of the 2004-2006 antidumping duty administrative 
review of certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Ecuador to rescind the 
2004-2006 administrative review for Exporklore Exports & 
Representacion.
    This amended initiation and partial rescission is issued and 
published in accordance with section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).

    Dated: September 13, 2006.
