On April 5, 2007, after initiating the reviews, the Department issued antidumping duty questionnaires to the three companies participating in the new shipper reviews. The Department subsequently issued supplemental questionnaires to all companies under review between June 2007 and December 2007. Import Administration, International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce. SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) is conducting new shipper reviews (‘‘NSRs’’) of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen fish fillets from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (‘‘Vietnam’’) that cover the period of review (‘‘POR’’) of August 1, 2006, through January 31, 2007.1 See Notice of Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Frozen Fish Fillets from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, 68 FR 47909 (August 12, 2003) (‘‘Order’’). On March 22, 2007, the Department initiated the semi-annual new shipper reviews for Vinh Quang Fisheries Corporation (‘‘Vinh Quang’’), Ngoc Thai Company (‘‘Ngoc Thai’’), and Anvifish Co., Ltd. (‘‘Anvifish’’). See Certain Frozen Fish Fillets from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Initiation of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Reviews, 72 FR 15653 (April 2, 2007). We are preliminarily rescinding the new shipper reviews of Vinh Quang and Ngoc Thai because at the time of their requests for a new shipper review, the deadline for such requests had passed, pursuant to section 351.214(c) of the Department’s regulations. We preliminarily determine that Anvifish has made sales in the United States at less than normal value (‘‘NV’’). If these preliminary results are adopted in our final results of review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to assess antidumping duties on entries of subject merchandise during the POR for which the importerspecific assessment rates are above de minimis. mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES AGENCY: DATES: Effective Date: February 1, 2008. 1 On November 6, 2007, the Department sent a letter informing parties that the POR was extended until February 26, 2007. Upon further review of the record, the Department determines that an extension of the POR is unnecessary. VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:22 Jan 31, 2008 Jkt 214001 Extension of Preliminary Results On September 12, 2007, the Department extended the preliminary results of these new shipper reviews to December 21, 2007.

On December 21, 2007, the Department extended the preliminary results of these new shipper reviews a second time to January 22, 2008. See Certain Frozen Fish Fillets from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Extension of Time Limits for the Preliminary Results of the 2006–2007 Semi-Annual New Shipper Reviews, 72 FR 72668 (December 21, 2007). Surrogate Country and Surrogate Values On June 22, 2007, the Department sent interested parties a letter requesting comments on the surrogate country and information pertaining to valuing factors of production. On August 7, 2007, Ngoc Thai requested that the Department extend the deadline to submit information pertaining to valuing factors of production. On August 9, 2007, the Department extended the deadline to submit information pertaining to valuing factors of production by three weeks to August 31, 2007. On August 31, 2007, Catfish Farmers of America and individual U.S. catfish processors (collectively, ‘‘Petitioners’’) submitted comments on the surrogate PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 6119 country and information pertaining to valuing factors of production.
