SUMMARY: On March 6, 2008, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp (shrimp) from India. This review covers 201 producers/exporters of the subject merchandise to the United States. The period of review (POR) is February 1, 2006, through January 31, 2007. We are rescinding the review with respect to four companies because these companies had no reportable shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. Based on our analysis of the comments received, we have made certain changes in the margin calculations. Therefore, the final results differ from the preliminary results. The final weighted-average dumping margins for the reviewed firms are listed below in the section entitled ‘‘Final Results of Review.’’ DATES: Effective Date: July 15, 2008.

E:\FR\FM\15JYN1.SGM 15JYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 136 / Tuesday, July 15, 2008 / Notices mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES On March 6, 2008, the Department published in the Federal Register the preliminary results of administrative review of the antidumping duty order on shrimp from India. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India: Preliminary Results and Preliminary Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 73 FR 12103 (Mar. 6, 2008) (Preliminary Results). We invited parties to comment on our preliminary results of review. In April 2008, we received case briefs from the petitioner (i.e., the Ad Hoc Shrimp Trade Action Committee), the respondents (i.e., Devi, Falcon, and Uniroyal Marine Exports Limited, a company not selected for individual review), and the Louisiana Shrimp Association (LSA). Also in April 2008, we received rebuttal briefs from the petitioner, Devi, and Falcon. The Department has conducted this administrative review in accordance with section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Scope of the Order The scope of this order includes certain frozen warmwater shrimp and prawns, whether wild-caught (ocean harvested) or farm-raised (produced by aquaculture), head-on or head-off, shellon or peeled, tail-on or tail-off,2 deveined or not deveined, cooked or raw, or otherwise processed in frozen form. The frozen warmwater shrimp and prawn products included in the scope of this order, regardless of definitions in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), are products which are processed from warmwater shrimp and prawns through freezing and which are sold in any count size. The products described above may be processed from any species of warmwater shrimp and prawns. Warmwater shrimp and prawns are generally classified in, but are not limited to, the Penaeidae family. Some examples of the farmed and wild-caught warmwater species include, but are not limited to, whiteleg shrimp (Penaeus vannemei), banana prawn (Penaeus merguiensis), fleshy prawn (Penaeus chinensis), giant river prawn (Macrobrachium rosenbergii), giant tiger prawn (Penaeus monodon), redspotted shrimp (Penaeus brasiliensis), southern brown shrimp (Penaeus subtilis), southern pink shrimp (Penaeus notialis), southern rough shrimp (Trachypenaeus curvirostris), southern white shrimp (Penaeus schmitti), blue shrimp (Penaeus stylirostris), western 2 ‘‘Tails’’ in this context means the tail fan, which includes the telson and the uropods. VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:01 Jul 14, 2008 Jkt 214001 white shrimp (Penaeus occidentalis), and Indian white prawn (Penaeus indicus). Frozen shrimp and prawns that are packed with marinade, spices or sauce are included in the scope of this order. In addition, food preparations, which are not ‘‘prepared meals,’’ that contain more than 20 percent by weight of shrimp or prawn are also included in the scope of this order. Excluded from the scope are: (1) Breaded shrimp and prawns (HTSUS subheading 1605.20.10.20); (2) shrimp and prawns generally classified in the Pandalidae family and commonly referred to as coldwater shrimp, in any state of processing; (3) fresh shrimp and prawns whether shell-on or peeled (HTSUS subheadings 0306.23.00.20 and 0306.23.00.40); (4) shrimp and prawns in prepared meals (HTSUS subheading 1605.20.05.10); (5) dried shrimp and prawns; (6) canned warmwater shrimp and prawns (HTSUS subheading 1605.20.10.40); (7) certain dusted shrimp; and (8) certain battered shrimp. Dusted shrimp is a shrimp-based product: (1) That is produced from fresh (or thawed-from-frozen) and peeled shrimp; (2) to which a ‘‘dusting’’ layer of rice or wheat flour of at least 95 percent purity has been applied; (3) with the entire surface of the shrimp flesh thoroughly and evenly coated with the flour; (4) with the non-shrimp content of the end product constituting between four and 10 percent of the product’s total weight after being dusted, but prior to being frozen; and (5) that is subjected to IQF freezing immediately after application of the dusting layer. Battered shrimp is a shrimp-based product that, when dusted in accordance with the definition of dusting above, is coated with a wet viscous layer containing egg and/or milk, and par-fried. The products covered by this order are currently classified under the following HTSUS subheadings: 0306.13.00.03, 0306.13.00.06, 0306.13.00.09, 0306.13.00.12, 0306.13.00.15, 0306.13.00.18, 0306.13.00.21, 0306.13.00.24, 0306.13.00.27, 0306.13.00.40, 1605.20.10.10, and 1605.20.10.30. These HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and for customs purposes only and are not dispositive, but rather the written description of the scope of this order is dispositive. Period of Review The POR is February 1, 2006, through January 31, 2007. PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 40493 Partial Rescission of Review In February 2007, the Department received timely requests, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b)(1), from the petitioner and the LSA to conduct a review of many Indian producers/ exporters, including four affiliated Indian producers/exporters of subject merchandise collectively known as ‘‘the Kadalkanny Group’’ (i.e., Kadalkanny Frozen Foods (Kadalkanny), Edhayam Frozen Foods Pvt. Ltd. (Edhayam), Diamond Seafood Exports (Diamond), and Theva & Co. (Theva)). The Department initiated a review of these four companies and requested that they supply data on the quantity and value (Q&V) of their exports of shrimp during the POR. See Notice of Initiation of Administrative Reviews of the Antidumping Duty Orders on Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From Brazil, Ecuador, India and Thailand, 72 FR 17100 (Apr. 6, 2007). On April 23, 2007, the Kadalkanny Group submitted a consolidated response to the Department’s Q&V questionnaire, in which it indicated that only one of its members (i.e., Kadalkanny) exported subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. Both the petitioner and the LSA withdrew their administrative review requests for Kadalkanny. Moreover, we confirmed with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) the claims made by two additional members of this group, Diamond and Theva, that they had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. Finally, on January 17 and February 7, 2008, we received information from Edhayam which demonstrated that its sole entry of subject merchandise during the POR was not a reportable transaction because it was a free sample, for which Edhayam received no remuneration. Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), and consistent with the Department’s practice, we are rescinding our review with respect to the Kadalkanny Group. See, e.g., Certain Steel Concrete Reinforcing Bars From Turkey; Final Results, Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review in Part, and Determination To Revoke in Part, 70 FR 67665, 67666 (Nov. 8, 2005). Successor-in-Interest As noted in the Preliminary Results, in April and May 2007, two of the producers/exporters named in the notice of initiation, Asvini Fisheries Limited and Surya Marine Exports (Surya Marine), informed the Department that, prior to the POR, they changed their names and are now doing business under the names Asvini E:\FR\FM\15JYN1.SGM 15JYN1 40494 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 136 / Tuesday, July 15, 2008 / Notices Fisheries Private Limited (Asvini) and Suryamitra Exim Private Limited (Suryamitra), respectively. Based on Asvini’s and Suryamitra’s submissions addressing the four factors with respect to this change in corporate structure (i.e., management, production facilities for the subject merchandise, supplier relationships, and customer base),3 in the preliminary results we preliminarily found that these companies’ organizational structure, management, production facilities, supplier relationships, and customers have remained essentially unchanged. Further, we found that Asvini operates as the same business entity as Asvini Fisheries Limited with respect to the production and sale of shrimp and that Suryamitra operates as the same business entity as Surya Marine. Therefore, we preliminarily determined that Asvini and Suryamitra are the successors-in-interest to Asvini Fisheries Limited and Surya Marine, respectively. See Preliminary Results, 73 FR at 12105–06. Since the preliminary results, no party to this proceeding has commented on this issue, and we have received no new information with respect to this issue. As a result, we continue to find that Asvini and Suryamitra are the successors-in-interest to Asvini Fisheries Limited and Surya Marine, respectively. mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Facts Available In the preliminary results, we determined that, in accordance with sections 776(a)(2)(A) and (C) of the Act, the use of facts available was appropriate as the basis for the dumping margins for 127 producers/exporters. See Preliminary Results, 73 FR at 12107–08. These companies are listed in the ‘‘Final Results of Review’’ section of this notice under the heading ‘‘AFA Rate Applicable to the Following Companies.’’ Section 776(a) of the Act provides that the Department will apply ‘‘facts otherwise available’’ if, inter alia, necessary information is not available on the record or an interested party: (1) Withholds information that has been requested by the Department; (2) fails to provide such information within the deadlines established, or in the form or manner requested by the Department; 3See Notice of Initiation and Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review: Certain Softwood Lumber Products from Canada, 70 FR 50299, 50300–01 (Aug. 26, 2005) (setting forth the four factors to be considered for successorship determinations), unchanged in Notice of Final Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review: Certain Softwood Lumber Products from Canada, 70 FR 59721 (Oct. 13, 2005). VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:01 Jul 14, 2008 Jkt 214001 (3) significantly impedes a proceeding; or (4) provides such information, but the information cannot be verified. In April 2007, the Department requested that all companies subject to review respond to the Department’s Q&V questionnaire for purposes of mandatory respondent selection. The original deadline to file a response was April 23, 2007. Of the 319 companies initially subject to review, numerous companies did not respond to the Department’s initial requests for information. Subsequently, in May 2007 and then again in June 2007, the Department issued letters to these companies affording them additional opportunities to submit a response to the Department’s Q&V questionnaire. However, 126 companies also failed to respond to the Department’s final requests for Q&V data.4 On February 25, 2008, the Department placed documentation on the record confirming delivery of the questionnaires to each of these companies. See the memorandum to the File from Elizabeth Eastwood, Senior Analyst, entitled, ‘‘Placing Delivery Information on the Record of the 2006–2007 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review on Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India,’’ dated February 25, 2008. By failing to respond to the Department’s Q&V questionnaire, these companies withheld requested information and significantly impeded the proceeding. Thus, pursuant to sections 776(a)(2)(A) and (C) of the Act, because these companies did not respond to the Department’s questionnaire, the Department finds that the use of total facts available is warranted. Further, one additional company, Gajula, claimed that it made no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. However, because we were unable to confirm the accuracy of Gajula’s claim with CBP, we requested further information/ clarification from this exporter. Gajula responded to the Department’s inquiry via e-mail on August 16, 2007, but did not indicate if its submission contained either public or business proprietary information. Therefore, on August 16, 2007, we informed Gajula via e-mail of the Department’s filing requirements. See the memorandum to the File from Nichole Zink, Analyst, entitled, ‘‘Placing E-mail to Gajula Exim (P) Ltd. on the Record in the 2006–2007 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Certain Frozen Warmwater 4 These companies are listed in the ‘‘Final Results of Review’’ section of this notice under the heading ‘‘AFA Rate Applicable to the Following Companies.’’ PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Shrimp from India,’’ dated August 16, 2007. On August 22, 2007, Gajula submitted a hard copy of its response, but again failed to follow the Department’s filing requirements and failed to indicate if the submission contained business proprietary or public information. On September 7, 2007, we issued a letter to Gajula again informing the company of the Department’s filing requirements, providing information regarding the treatment of proprietary information and the preparation of a public version of a response, and requiring it to properly file its response. On September 29, 2007, Gajula faxed a letter to the Department in which it stated that the information contained in its August submission should be treated as business proprietary information. However, Gajula did not indicate the specific information in the August submission which should be designated as business proprietary. As a result, on October 1 and 17, 2007, we provided Gajula additional detailed instructions regarding the treatment of proprietary information and the preparation of a public version of a response, and we again required it to properly file its submissions on the record of this proceeding. See the memorandum to the File from Elizabeth Eastwood, Senior Analyst, entitled, ‘‘Placing October EMail Correspondence with Gajula Exim (P) Ltd. on the Record of the 2006–2007 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India,’’ dated October 17, 2007. Gajula failed to respond to the Department’s October communications and did not remedy the deficiencies in its August submission. Although the Department afforded Gajula multiple opportunities to correct the procedural deficiencies in its response, it failed to do so. By failing to respond to the Department’s requests, Gajula withheld requested information and significantly impeded the proceeding. Consequently, pursuant to sections 776(a)(2)(A) and (C) of the Act, the Department finds that the use of total facts available for Gajula is appropriate. Adverse Facts Available In selecting from among the facts otherwise available, section 776(b) of the Act authorizes the Department to use an adverse inference if the Department finds that an interested party failed to cooperate by not acting to the best of its ability to comply with the request for information. See, e.g., Notice of Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Stainless Steel Bar from India, 70 FR 54023, 54025–26 (Sept. 13, 2005); see also E:\FR\FM\15JYN1.SGM 15JYN1 40495 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 136 / Tuesday, July 15, 2008 / Notices mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Notice of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Final Negative Critical Circumstances: Carbon and Certain Alloy Steel Wire Rod from Brazil, 67 FR 55792, 55794–96 (Aug. 30, 2002). Adverse inferences are appropriate ‘‘to ensure that the party does not obtain a more favorable result by failing to cooperate than if it had cooperated fully.’’ See Statement of Administrative Action accompanying the Uruguay Round Agreements Act, H.R. Rep. No. 103–316, Vol. 1, at 870 (1994), reprinted in 1994 U.S.C.C.A.N. 4040, 4199. Furthermore, ‘‘affirmative evidence of bad faith on the part of a respondent is not required before the Department may make an adverse inference.’’ See Antidumping Duties; Countervailing Duties, 62 FR 27296, 27340 (May 19, 1997). See also Nippon Steel Corp. v. United States, 337 F.3d 1373, 1382 (Fed. Cir. 2003) (Nippon) (‘‘the statute does not contain an intent element’’). We find that 126 of the 127 companies listed under the heading ‘‘AFA Rate Applicable to the Following Companies’’ in the ‘‘Final Results of Review’’ section of this notice, below, did not act to the best of their abilities in this proceeding, within the meaning of section 776(b) of the Act, because it is reasonable to expect companies to possess information about their own export activities, but these 126 companies failed to respond to the Department’s requests for this information. The 127th company, Gajula, failed to respond to the Department’s requests to correct the procedural deficiencies in its response, discussed in the ‘‘Fact Available’’ section of this notice, above. Therefore, an adverse inference is warranted in selecting facts otherwise available for all 127 companies. See Nippon, 337 F.3d at 1382–83. Section 776(b) of the Act provides that the Department may use as AFA information derived from: (1) The petition; (2) the final determination in the investigation; (3) any previous review; or (4) any other information placed on the record. The Department’s practice, when selecting an AFA rate from among the possible sources of information, has been to ensure that the margin is sufficiently adverse ‘‘as to effectuate the statutory purposes of the adverse facts available rule to induce respondents to provide the Department with complete and accurate information in a timely manner.’’ Notice of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Final Negative Critical Circumstances: Carbon and Certain Alloy Steel Wire Rod from Brazil, 67 FR 55792, 55796 (Aug. 30, 2002); see also Notice of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Static Random Access Memory Semiconductors From Taiwan, 63 FR 8909, 8932 (Feb. 23, 1998). In order to ensure that the margin is sufficiently adverse so as to induce cooperation, we have assigned a rate of 110.90 percent, which was the highest rate alleged in the petition, as adjusted at the initiation of the less-than-fairvalue (LTFV) investigation, to the 127 companies listed below. See Notice of Initiation of Antidumping Duty Investigations: Certain Frozen and Canned Warmwater Shrimp From Brazil, Ecuador, India, Thailand, the People’s Republic of China and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, 69 FR 3876, 3880 (Jan. 27, 2004). The Department finds that this rate is sufficiently high as to effectuate the purpose of the AFA rule (i.e., we find that this rate is high enough to encourage participation in future segments of this proceeding in accordance with section 776(b) of the Act). For the reasons stated in the Preliminary Results, we continue to find that the information upon which this margin is based has probative value and thus satisfies the corroboration requirements of section 776(c) of the Act. See Preliminary Results, 73 FR at 12108. See also the July 7, 2008, memorandum from Henry Almond to the file entitled, ‘‘Corroboration of Adverse Facts Available Rate for the Final Results in the 2006–2007 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India.’’ Cost of Production As discussed in the preliminary results, we conducted an investigation to determine whether Devi and Falcon made third country sales of the foreign like product during the POR at prices below their costs of production (COP) within the meaning of section 773(b) of the Act. See Preliminary Results, 73 FR at 12111–12112. For these final results, we performed the cost test following the same methodology as in the Preliminary Results, except as discussed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum (the Decision Memo). We found 20 percent or more of each respondent’s sales of a given product during the reporting period were at prices less than the weighted-average COP for this period. Thus, we determined that these below-cost sales were made in ‘‘substantial quantities’’ within an extended period of time and at prices which did not permit the recovery of all costs within a reasonable period of time in the normal course of trade. See sections 773(b)(1)-(2) of the Act. Therefore, for purposes of these final results, we found that Devi and Falcon made below-cost sales not in the ordinary course of trade. Consequently, we disregarded these sales for each respondent and used the remaining sales as the basis for determining normal value pursuant to section 773(b)(1) of the Act. Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the case briefs by parties to this administrative review, and to which we have responded, are listed in the Appendix to this notice and addressed in the Decision Memo, which is adopted by this notice. Parties can find a complete discussion of all issues raised in this review and the corresponding recommendations in this public memorandum, which is on file in the Central Records Unit, room 1117, of the main Department building. In addition, a complete version of the Decision Memo can be accessed directly on the Web at http://ia.ita.doc.gov/ frn/. The paper copy and electronic version of the Decision Memo are identical in content. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on our analysis of the comments received, we have made certain changes in the margin calculations. These changes are discussed in the relevant sections of the Decision Memo.

Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From India: Final Results and 
Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: On March 6, 2008, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp (shrimp) from 
India. This review covers 201 producers/exporters of the subject 
merchandise to the United States. The period of review (POR) is 
February 1, 2006, through January 31, 2007. We are rescinding the 
review with respect to four companies because these companies had no 
reportable shipments of subject merchandise during the POR.
    Based on our analysis of the comments received, we have made 
certain changes in the margin calculations. Therefore, the final 
results differ from the preliminary results. The final weighted-average 
dumping margins for the reviewed firms are listed below in the section 
entitled ``Final Results of Review.''

DATES: Effective Date: July 15, 2008.

    On March 6, 2008, the Department published in the Federal Register 
the preliminary results of administrative review of the antidumping 
duty order on shrimp from India. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp 
from India: Preliminary Results and Preliminary Partial Rescission of 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 73 FR 12103 (Mar. 6, 2008) 
(Preliminary Results).
    We invited parties to comment on our preliminary results of review. 
In April 2008, we received case briefs from the petitioner (i.e., the 
Ad Hoc Shrimp Trade Action Committee), the respondents (i.e., Devi, 
Falcon, and Uniroyal Marine Exports Limited, a company not selected for 
individual review), and the Louisiana Shrimp Association (LSA). Also in 
April 2008, we received rebuttal briefs from the petitioner, Devi, and 
Falcon.
    The Department has conducted this administrative review in 
accordance with section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act).

Scope of the Order

    The scope of this order includes certain frozen warmwater shrimp 
and prawns, whether wild-caught (ocean harvested) or farm-raised 
(produced by aquaculture), head-on or head-off, shell-on or peeled, 
tail-on or tail-off,\2\ deveined or not deveined, cooked or raw, or 
otherwise processed in frozen form.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ ``Tails'' in this context means the tail fan, which includes 
the telson and the uropods.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The frozen warmwater shrimp and prawn products included in the 
scope of this order, regardless of definitions in the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), are products which are processed 
from warmwater shrimp and prawns through freezing and which are sold in 
any count size.
    The products described above may be processed from any species of 
warmwater shrimp and prawns. Warmwater shrimp and prawns are generally 
classified in, but are not limited to, the Penaeidae family. Some 
examples of the farmed and wild-caught warmwater species include, but 
are not limited to, whiteleg shrimp (Penaeus vannemei), banana prawn 
(Penaeus merguiensis), fleshy prawn (Penaeus chinensis), giant river 
prawn (Macrobrachium rosenbergii), giant tiger prawn (Penaeus monodon), 
redspotted shrimp (Penaeus brasiliensis), southern brown shrimp 
(Penaeus subtilis), southern pink shrimp (Penaeus notialis), southern 
rough shrimp (Trachypenaeus curvirostris), southern white shrimp 
(Penaeus schmitti), blue shrimp (Penaeus stylirostris), western white 
shrimp (Penaeus occidentalis), and Indian white prawn (Penaeus 
indicus).
    Frozen shrimp and prawns that are packed with marinade, spices or 
sauce are included in the scope of this order. In addition, food 
preparations, which are not ``prepared meals,'' that contain more than 
20 percent by weight of shrimp or prawn are also included in the scope 
of this order.
    Excluded from the scope are: (1) Breaded shrimp and prawns (HTSUS 
subheading 1605.20.10.20); (2) shrimp and prawns generally classified 
in the Pandalidae family and commonly referred to as coldwater shrimp, 
in any state of processing; (3) fresh shrimp and prawns whether shell-
on or peeled (HTSUS subheadings 0306.23.00.20 and 0306.23.00.40); (4) 
shrimp and prawns in prepared meals (HTSUS subheading 1605.20.05.10); 
(5) dried shrimp and prawns; (6) canned warmwater shrimp and prawns 
(HTSUS subheading 1605.20.10.40); (7) certain dusted shrimp; and (8) 
certain battered shrimp. Dusted shrimp is a shrimp-based product: (1) 
That is produced from fresh (or thawed-from-frozen) and peeled shrimp; 
(2) to which a ``dusting'' layer of rice or wheat flour of at least 95 
percent purity has been applied; (3) with the entire surface of the 
shrimp flesh thoroughly and evenly coated with the flour; (4) with the 
non-shrimp content of the end product constituting between four and 10 
percent of the product's total weight after being dusted, but prior to 
being frozen; and (5) that is subjected to IQF freezing immediately 
after application of the dusting layer. Battered shrimp is a shrimp-
based product that, when dusted in accordance with the definition of 
dusting above, is coated with a wet viscous layer containing egg and/or 
milk, and par-fried.
    The products covered by this order are currently classified under 
the following HTSUS subheadings: 0306.13.00.03, 0306.13.00.06,

Period of Review

    The POR is February 1, 2006, through January 31, 2007.

Partial Rescission of Review

    In February 2007, the Department received timely requests, in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b)(1), from the petitioner and the LSA 
to conduct a review of many Indian producers/exporters, including four 
affiliated Indian producers/exporters of subject merchandise 
collectively known as ``the Kadalkanny Group'' (i.e., Kadalkanny Frozen 
Foods (Kadalkanny), Edhayam Frozen Foods Pvt. Ltd. (Edhayam), Diamond 
Seafood Exports (Diamond), and Theva & Co. (Theva)). The Department 
initiated a review of these four companies and requested that they 
supply data on the quantity and value (Q&V) of their exports of shrimp 
during the POR. See Notice of Initiation of Administrative Reviews of 
the Antidumping Duty Orders on Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From 
Brazil, Ecuador, India and Thailand, 72 FR 17100 (Apr. 6, 2007). On 
April 23, 2007, the Kadalkanny Group submitted a consolidated response 
to the Department's Q&V questionnaire, in which it indicated that only 
one of its members (i.e., Kadalkanny) exported subject merchandise to 
the United States during the POR.
    Both the petitioner and the LSA withdrew their administrative 
review requests for Kadalkanny. Moreover, we confirmed with U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) the claims made by two additional 
members of this group, Diamond and Theva, that they had no shipments of 
subject merchandise during the POR. Finally, on January 17 and February 
7, 2008, we received information from Edhayam which demonstrated that 
its sole entry of subject merchandise during the POR was not a 
reportable transaction because it was a free sample, for which Edhayam 
received no remuneration. Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.213(d)(3), and consistent with the Department's practice, we are 
rescinding our review with respect to the Kadalkanny Group. See, e.g., 
Certain Steel Concrete Reinforcing Bars From Turkey; Final Results, 
Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review in Part, and 
Determination To Revoke in Part, 70 FR 67665, 67666 (Nov. 8, 2005).

Successor-in-Interest

    As noted in the Preliminary Results, in April and May 2007, two of 
the producers/exporters named in the notice of initiation, Asvini 
Fisheries Limited and Surya Marine Exports (Surya Marine), informed the 
Department that, prior to the POR, they changed their names and are now 
doing business under the names Asvini

[[Page 40494]]

Fisheries Private Limited (Asvini) and Suryamitra Exim Private Limited 
(Suryamitra), respectively. Based on Asvini's and Suryamitra's 
submissions addressing the four factors with respect to this change in 
corporate structure (i.e., management, production facilities for the 
subject merchandise, supplier relationships, and customer base),\3\ in 
the preliminary results we preliminarily found that these companies' 
organizational structure, management, production facilities, supplier 
relationships, and customers have remained essentially unchanged. 
Further, we found that Asvini operates as the same business entity as 
Asvini Fisheries Limited with respect to the production and sale of 
shrimp and that Suryamitra operates as the same business entity as 
Surya Marine. Therefore, we preliminarily determined that Asvini and 
Suryamitra are the successors-in-interest to Asvini Fisheries Limited 
and Surya Marine, respectively. See Preliminary Results, 73 FR at 
12105-06.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\See Notice of Initiation and Preliminary Results of 
Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review: Certain Softwood 
Lumber Products from Canada, 70 FR 50299, 50300-01 (Aug. 26, 2005) 
(setting forth the four factors to be considered for successorship 
determinations), unchanged in Notice of Final Results of Antidumping 
Duty Changed Circumstances Review: Certain Softwood Lumber Products 
from Canada, 70 FR 59721 (Oct. 13, 2005).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Since the preliminary results, no party to this proceeding has 
commented on this issue, and we have received no new information with 
respect to this issue. As a result, we continue to find that Asvini and 
Suryamitra are the successors-in-interest to Asvini Fisheries Limited 
and Surya Marine, respectively.

Facts Available

    In the preliminary results, we determined that, in accordance with 
sections 776(a)(2)(A) and (C) of the Act, the use of facts available 
was appropriate as the basis for the dumping margins for 127 producers/
exporters. See Preliminary Results, 73 FR at 12107-08. These companies 
are listed in the ``Final Results of Review'' section of this notice 
under the heading ``AFA Rate Applicable to the Following Companies.''
    Section 776(a) of the Act provides that the Department will apply 
``facts otherwise available'' if, inter alia, necessary information is 
not available on the record or an interested party: (1) Withholds 
information that has been requested by the Department; (2) fails to 
provide such information within the deadlines established, or in the 
form or manner requested by the Department; (3) significantly impedes a 
proceeding; or (4) provides such information, but the information 
cannot be verified.
    In April 2007, the Department requested that all companies subject 
to review respond to the Department's Q&V questionnaire for purposes of 
mandatory respondent selection. The original deadline to file a 
response was April 23, 2007. Of the 319 companies initially subject to 
review, numerous companies did not respond to the Department's initial 
requests for information. Subsequently, in May 2007 and then again in 
June 2007, the Department issued letters to these companies affording 
them additional opportunities to submit a response to the Department's 
Q&V questionnaire. However, 126 companies also failed to respond to the 
Department's final requests for Q&V data.\4\ On February 25, 2008, the 
Department placed documentation on the record confirming delivery of 
the questionnaires to each of these companies. See the memorandum to 
the File from Elizabeth Eastwood, Senior Analyst, entitled, ``Placing 
Delivery Information on the Record of the 2006-2007 Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review on Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India,'' 
dated February 25, 2008. By failing to respond to the Department's Q&V 
questionnaire, these companies withheld requested information and 
significantly impeded the proceeding. Thus, pursuant to sections 
776(a)(2)(A) and (C) of the Act, because these companies did not 
respond to the Department's questionnaire, the Department finds that 
the use of total facts available is warranted.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ These companies are listed in the ``Final Results of 
Review'' section of this notice under the heading ``AFA Rate 
Applicable to the Following Companies.''
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Further, one additional company, Gajula, claimed that it made no 
shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. 
However, because we were unable to confirm the accuracy of Gajula's 
claim with CBP, we requested further information/clarification from 
this exporter. Gajula responded to the Department's inquiry via e-mail 
on August 16, 2007, but did not indicate if its submission contained 
either public or business proprietary information. Therefore, on August 
16, 2007, we informed Gajula via e-mail of the Department's filing 
requirements. See the memorandum to the File from Nichole Zink, 
Analyst, entitled, ``Placing E-mail to Gajula Exim (P) Ltd. on the 
Record in the 2006-2007 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of 
Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India,'' dated August 16, 2007. On 
August 22, 2007, Gajula submitted a hard copy of its response, but 
again failed to follow the Department's filing requirements and failed 
to indicate if the submission contained business proprietary or public 
information. On September 7, 2007, we issued a letter to Gajula again 
informing the company of the Department's filing requirements, 
providing information regarding the treatment of proprietary 
information and the preparation of a public version of a response, and 
requiring it to properly file its response. On September 29, 2007, 
Gajula faxed a letter to the Department in which it stated that the 
information contained in its August submission should be treated as 
business proprietary information. However, Gajula did not indicate the 
specific information in the August submission which should be 
designated as business proprietary. As a result, on October 1 and 17, 
2007, we provided Gajula additional detailed instructions regarding the 
treatment of proprietary information and the preparation of a public 
version of a response, and we again required it to properly file its 
submissions on the record of this proceeding. See the memorandum to the 
File from Elizabeth Eastwood, Senior Analyst, entitled, ``Placing 
October E-Mail Correspondence with Gajula Exim (P) Ltd. on the Record 
of the 2006-2007 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Certain 
Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India,'' dated October 17, 2007. Gajula 
failed to respond to the Department's October communications and did 
not remedy the deficiencies in its August submission.
    Although the Department afforded Gajula multiple opportunities to 
correct the procedural deficiencies in its response, it failed to do 
so. By failing to respond to the Department's requests, Gajula withheld 
requested information and significantly impeded the proceeding. 
Consequently, pursuant to sections 776(a)(2)(A) and (C) of the Act, the 
Department finds that the use of total facts available for Gajula is 
appropriate.

Adverse Facts Available

    In selecting from among the facts otherwise available, section 
776(b) of the Act authorizes the Department to use an adverse inference 
if the Department finds that an interested party failed to cooperate by 
not acting to the best of its ability to comply with the request for 
information. See, e.g., Notice of Final Results of Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review: Stainless Steel Bar from India, 70 FR 54023, 
54025-26 (Sept. 13, 2005); see also

[[Page 40495]]

Notice of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and 
Final Negative Critical Circumstances: Carbon and Certain Alloy Steel 
Wire Rod from Brazil, 67 FR 55792, 55794-96 (Aug. 30, 2002). Adverse 
inferences are appropriate ``to ensure that the party does not obtain a 
more favorable result by failing to cooperate than if it had cooperated 
fully.'' See Statement of Administrative Action accompanying the 
Uruguay Round Agreements Act, H.R. Rep. No. 103-316, Vol. 1, at 870 
(1994), reprinted in 1994 U.S.C.C.A.N. 4040, 4199. Furthermore, 
``affirmative evidence of bad faith on the part of a respondent is not 
required before the Department may make an adverse inference.'' See 
Antidumping Duties; Countervailing Duties, 62 FR 27296, 27340 (May 19, 
1997). See also Nippon Steel Corp. v. United States, 337 F.3d 1373, 
1382 (Fed. Cir. 2003) (Nippon) (``the statute does not contain an 
intent element''). We find that 126 of the 127 companies listed under 
the heading ``AFA Rate Applicable to the Following Companies'' in the 
``Final Results of Review'' section of this notice, below, did not act 
to the best of their abilities in this proceeding, within the meaning 
of section 776(b) of the Act, because it is reasonable to expect 
companies to possess information about their own export activities, but 
these 126 companies failed to respond to the Department's requests for 
this information. The 127th company, Gajula, failed to respond to the 
Department's requests to correct the procedural deficiencies in its 
response, discussed in the ``Fact Available'' section of this notice, 
above. Therefore, an adverse inference is warranted in selecting facts 
otherwise available for all 127 companies. See Nippon, 337 F.3d at 
1382-83.
    Section 776(b) of the Act provides that the Department may use as 
AFA information derived from: (1) The petition; (2) the final 
determination in the investigation; (3) any previous review; or (4) any 
other information placed on the record.
    The Department's practice, when selecting an AFA rate from among 
the possible sources of information, has been to ensure that the margin 
is sufficiently adverse ``as to effectuate the statutory purposes of 
the adverse facts available rule to induce respondents to provide the 
Department with complete and accurate information in a timely manner.'' 
Notice of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and 
Final Negative Critical Circumstances: Carbon and Certain Alloy Steel 
Wire Rod from Brazil, 67 FR 55792, 55796 (Aug. 30, 2002); see also 
Notice of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Static 
Random Access Memory Semiconductors From Taiwan, 63 FR 8909, 8932 (Feb. 
23, 1998).
    In order to ensure that the margin is sufficiently adverse so as to 
induce cooperation, we have assigned a rate of 110.90 percent, which 
was the highest rate alleged in the petition, as adjusted at the 
initiation of the less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, to the 127 
companies listed below. See Notice of Initiation of Antidumping Duty 
Investigations: Certain Frozen and Canned Warmwater Shrimp From Brazil, 
Ecuador, India, Thailand, the People's Republic of China and the 
Socialist Republic of Vietnam, 69 FR 3876, 3880 (Jan. 27, 2004). The 
Department finds that this rate is sufficiently high as to effectuate 
the purpose of the AFA rule (i.e., we find that this rate is high 
enough to encourage participation in future segments of this proceeding 
in accordance with section 776(b) of the Act).
    For the reasons stated in the Preliminary Results, we continue to 
find that the information upon which this margin is based has probative 
value and thus satisfies the corroboration requirements of section 
776(c) of the Act. See Preliminary Results, 73 FR at 12108. See also 
the July 7, 2008, memorandum from Henry Almond to the file entitled, 
``Corroboration of Adverse Facts Available Rate for the Final Results 
in the 2006-2007 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Certain 
Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India.''

Cost of Production

    As discussed in the preliminary results, we conducted an 
investigation to determine whether Devi and Falcon made third country 
sales of the foreign like product during the POR at prices below their 
costs of production (COP) within the meaning of section 773(b) of the 
Act. See Preliminary Results, 73 FR at 12111-12112. For these final 
results, we performed the cost test following the same methodology as 
in the Preliminary Results, except as discussed in the Issues and 
Decision Memorandum (the Decision Memo).
    We found 20 percent or more of each respondent's sales of a given 
product during the reporting period were at prices less than the 
weighted-average COP for this period. Thus, we determined that these 
below-cost sales were made in ``substantial quantities'' within an 
extended period of time and at prices which did not permit the recovery 
of all costs within a reasonable period of time in the normal course of 
trade. See sections 773(b)(1)-(2) of the Act.
    Therefore, for purposes of these final results, we found that Devi 
and Falcon made below-cost sales not in the ordinary course of trade. 
Consequently, we disregarded these sales for each respondent and used 
the remaining sales as the basis for determining normal value pursuant 
to section 773(b)(1) of the Act.

Assessment

    The Department shall determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ This rate is based on the weighted average of the margins 
calculation for those companies selected for individual review, 
excluding de minimis margins or margins based entirely on AFA.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), because Devi and Falcon reported 
the entered value for some or all of their U.S. sales, we have 
calculated importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on 
the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the 
examined sales to the total entered value of the sales which entered 
value was reported. For Falcon's U.S. sales reported without entered 
values, we have calculated importer-specific per-unit duty assessment 
rates by aggregating the total amount of antidumping duties calculated 
for the examined sales and dividing this amount by the total quantity 
of those sales. To determine whether the duty assessment rates are de 
minimis, in accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 
351.106(c)(2), we have calculated importer-specific ad valorem ratios 
based on the estimated entered value.
    For the responsive companies which were not selected for individual 
review, we have calculated an assessment rate based on the weighted 
average of the cash deposit rates calculated for the companies selected 
for individual review excluding any which are de minimis or determined 
entirely on AFA.
    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we will instruct CBP to liquidate 
without regard to antidumping duties any entries for which the 
assessment rate is de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent). The 
Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days 
after the date of publication of these final results of review.
    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003. See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). This 
clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the 
POR produced by companies included in these final results of review for 
which the reviewed companies did not know their merchandise was 
destined for the United States. This clarification will also apply to 
POR entries of subject merchandise produced by companies for which we 
are rescinding the review based on certifications of no shipments,

[[Page 40499]]

because these companies certified that they made no POR shipments of 
subject merchandise for which they had knowledge of U.S. destination. 
In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries 
at the all-others rate established in the LTFV investigation if there 
is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the 
transaction.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    Further, the following deposit requirements will be effective for 
all shipments of shrimp from India entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the 
final results of this administrative review, as provided for by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rates for the reviewed 
companies will be the rates shown above, except if the rate is less 
than 0.50 percent, de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 
351.106(c)(1), the cash deposit will be zero; (2) for previously 
investigated companies not listed above, the cash deposit rate will 
continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recent 
period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, or 
the LTFV investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate 
will be the rate established for the most recent period for the 
manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all 
other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 10.17 percent, the 
all-others rate established in the LTFV investigation. See Notice of 
Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and 
Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India, 70 
FR 5147, 5148 (Feb. 1, 2005). These deposit requirements shall remain 
in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility, under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2), to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written 
notification of return/destruction of APO materials or conversion to 
judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with 
the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.
    We are issuing and publishing these results of review in accordance 
with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: July 7, 2008.
David M. Spooner,
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
