The Department received a timely request from the Ad Hoc Shrimp Trade Action Committee (Domestic Producers) in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), for an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Brazil. On April 7, 2009, the Department published a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Brazil with respect to 43 companies.

The Department stated in its initiation of this review that it intended to rely on U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data to select respondents. See Initiation Notice. However, our review of the CBP database showed no entries of certain frozen warmwater shrimp originating in Brazil, subject to AD/CVD duties, during the period February 1, 2008, to January 31, 2009. See April 9, 2009, Memorandum to the File from Kate Johnson entitled ‘‘Release of POR Entry Data from CBP.’’ We released the results of our CBP data query to interested parties and invited them to comment on the CBP data and respondent selection.

Partial Rescission of Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), the Department may rescind an 
administrative review, with respect to a particular exporter or 
producer, if the Secretary concludes that, during the period covered by 
the review, there were no entries, exports, or sales of the subject 
merchandise by that producer. Dongkuk submitted a letter on October 20, 
2008, certifying that it did not have sales of subject merchandise to 
the United States during the POR. The petitioners, United States Steel 
Corporation, Nucor Corporation, and Mittal Steel USA ISG, Inc., did not 
comment on Dongkuk's no-shipment claim.
    As noted, we conducted an internal customs data query on October 2, 
2008, as part of the selection of respondents for individual review. 
See CBP Data. The data query showed several questionable entries, of 
which the Department requested entry documents. See Entry Documentation 
Request. The documentation showed that the questionable entries from 
the CBP data were not produced by Dongkuk. See Entry Documentation.
    Based on our analysis of the shipment data, Dongkuk is a non-
shipper for this review. See No Shipment Analysis. Therefore, in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), and consistent with our practice, 
we are rescinding this review with respect to Dongkuk. See, e.g., 
Stainless Steel Bar From India; Final Results of Antidumping Duty

Administrative Review, 65 FR 48965, 48966 (August 10, 2000).
