On March 15, 2010, 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 of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, Partial Rescission of Review, Notice of Intent to Rescind Review in Part, and Notice of Intent to Revoke Order in Part, 75 FR 12175 (Mar. 15, 2010) (Preliminary Results). We invited parties to comment on the Preliminary Results of review. In April 2009, we received case and rebuttal briefs from the Ad Hoc Shrimp Trade Action Committee (the Petitioner) and the American Shrimp Processors Association (ASPA)/the Louisiana Shrimp Association (LSA). We also received a case brief from the Liberty Group and a rebuttal brief from Devi. 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,3 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 2 The Liberty Group consists of the following companies: Devi Marine Food Exports Private Limited, Kader Exports Private Limited, Kader Investment and Trading Company Private Limited, Liberty Frozen Foods Private Limited, Liberty Oil Mills Ltd., Premier Marine Products, and Universal Cold Storage Private Limited (collectively, ‘‘the Liberty Group’’). 3 ‘‘Tails’’ in this context means the tail fan, which includes the telson and the uropods. PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 41813 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 ten 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, E:\FR\FM\19JYN1.SGM 19JYN1 41814 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 137 / Monday, July 19, 2010 / Notices 0306.13.00.27, 0306.13.00.40, 1605.20.10.10, and 1605.20.10.30.

Period of Review The POR is February 1, 2008, through January 31, 2009. Partial Rescission jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES In the Preliminary Results, we stated our intention to rescind the review with respect to the following companies, which reported to the Department that they had no shipments during the POR: (1) Abad Fisheries (2) Allanna Frozen Foods Pvt. Ltd. (3) Allansons Ltd. (4) Amulya Sea Foods (5) Anjaneya Seafoods (6) Baby Marine (Eastern) Exports (7) Baby Marine Exports (8) Baby Marine International (9) Baby Marine Products (10) Baby Marine Sarass (11) Baraka Overseas Traders (12) Blue Water Foods & Exports P. Ltd. (13) BMR Exports (14) Coreline Exports (15) Frigerio Conserva Allana Ltd. (16) G A Randerian Ltd. (17) G.K S Business Associates Pvt. Ltd. (18) Hiravata Ice & Cold Storage (19) Hiravati Exports Pvt. Ltd. (20) Hiravati International Pvt. Ltd.

(30) Lourde Exports (31) Sanchita Marine Products P Ltd (32) Silver Seafood (33) Sterling Foods (34) Veejay Impex (35) Veraval Marines & Chemicals P Ltd Further, we stated our intention to rescind the review for the following firms because we initiated multiple reviews for these companies: 4 (1) Devi Fisheries Limited; (2) Premier Marine 4 We initiated separate administrative reviews for these companies because the petitioner and/or the respondent listed separate addresses for the same company in their review requests. We subsequently clarified the correct addresses for these companies and are rescinding the review with respect to these duplicate company names (i.e., these companies are included in this administrative review only once). See Preliminary Results, 75 FR at 12178–12179. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:24 Jul 16, 2010 Jkt 220001 Products; (3) Ram’s Assorted Cold Storage Ltd.; (4) Satya Sea Foods Pvt. Limited; and (5) Usha Sea Foods. We stated our intention to rescind the review for Calcutta Seafoods because this company no longer exists and is now doing business as Calcutta Seafoods Pvt. Ltd. Since the Preliminary Results we have received no comments regarding our stated intention to rescind the review for each of the firms listed above. Therefore, the Department is rescinding this review with respect to the 41 firms listed above. Duty Absorption In our Preliminary Results, we preliminarily found that there was no duty absorption applicable to Devi’s U.S. sales because we preliminarily determined that there is no dumping margin with respect to Devi’s U.S. sales during the current administrative review. See Preliminary Results, 75 FR at 12179–12180. Because we continue to find that there is no dumping margin with respect to Devi’s U.S. sales during this POR, we also continue to find that there is no duty absorption applicable to Devi’s U.S. sales. Determination To Revoke Order, in Part The Department may revoke, in whole or in part, an antidumping duty order upon completion of a review under section 751 of the Act. While Congress has not specified the procedures that the Department must follow in revoking an order, the Department has developed a procedure for revocation that is described in 19 CFR 351.222. This regulation requires, inter alia, that a company requesting revocation must submit the following: (1) A certification that the company has sold the subject merchandise at not less than normal value (NV) in the current review period and that the company will not sell subject merchandise at less than NV in the future; (2) a certification that the company sold commercial quantities of the subject merchandise to the United States in each of the three years forming the basis of the request; and (3) an agreement to immediate reinstatement of the order if the Department concludes that the company, subsequent to the revocation, sold subject merchandise at less than NV. See 19 CFR 351.222(e)(1). Upon receipt of such a request to revoke an order in part, the Department will consider: (1) Whether the company in question has sold subject merchandise at not less than NV for a period of at least three consecutive years; (2) whether the company has agreed in writing to its immediate reinstatement PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 in the order, as long as any exporter or producer is subject to the order, if the Department concludes that the company, subsequent to the revocation, sold the subject merchandise at less than NV; and (3) whether the continued application of the antidumping duty order is otherwise necessary to offset dumping. See 19 CFR 351.222(b)(2)(i). See also Sebacic Acid From the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Determination To Revoke Order in Part, 67 FR 69719, 69720 (Nov. 19, 2002). We have determined that the request from Devi meet all of the criteria for revocation under 19 CFR 351.222. With regard to the criteria of subsection 19 CFR 351.222(b)(2), our final margin calculations show that Devi sold shrimp at not less than NV during the current review period. In addition, Devi sold shrimp at not less than NV in the two previous administrative reviews (i.e., Devi’s dumping margins were zero or de minimis). See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From India: Final Results and Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 74 FR 33409, 33411 (July 13, 2009) and Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From India: Final Results and Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 73 FR 40492, 40495 (July 15, 2008). Also, we find that application of the antidumping duty order to Devi is no longer warranted because: (1) Devi has agreed to immediate reinstatement of the order if the Department finds that it has resumed making sales at less than NV; and (2) the continued application of the order is not otherwise necessary to offset dumping. Therefore, we find that Devi qualifies for revocation of the antidumping duty order on shrimp from India under 19 CFR 351.222(b)(2). Accordingly, we are revoking the order with respect to subject merchandise produced and exported by Devi. For further discussion, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum (Decision Memo) accompanying this notice at Comment 3. Effective Date of Revocation This revocation applies to all entries of subject merchandise that are produced and exported by Devi, and are entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after February 1, 2009. The Department will order the suspension of liquidation lifted for all such entries and will instruct U.S. Customer and Border Protection (CBP) to release any cash deposits or bonds. The Department will further instruct CBP to refund with interest any cash E:\FR\FM\19JYN1.SGM 19JYN1 41815 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 137 / Monday, July 19, 2010 / Notices deposits on entries made on or after February 1, 2009. Cost of Production As discussed in the Preliminary Results, we conducted an investigation to determine whether Devi, Falcon, and the Liberty Group 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, 75 FR at 12182– 12183. For these final results, we performed the cost test following the same methodology as in the Preliminary Results. 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 continue to find that Devi, Falcon, and the Liberty Group 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 NV pursuant to section 773(b)(1) of the Act. For those U.S. sales of subject merchandise for which there were no third country sales in the ordinary course of trade, we compared constructed export prices or export prices, as appropriate, to constructed value in accordance with section 773(a)(4) of the Act. addressed in the Decision Memo, which is adopted by this notice.

Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), because Devi, Falcon, and the Liberty Group reported the entered value for 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. 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 entered value.

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. Because we have revoked the order with respect to subject merchandise produced and exported by Devi, we will instruct CBP to terminate the suspension of liquidation for imports of such merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after February 1, 2009, and to refund all cash deposits collected.

Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From India: Final Results of 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, Partial Rescission of Review, 
and Notice of Revocation of Order in Part

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

SUMMARY: On March 15, 2010, 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 159 producers/exporters \1\ of the subject 
merchandise to the United States. The period of review (POR) is 
February 1, 2008, through January 31, 2009.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Collapsed entities are treated as one producer/exporter.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    After analyzing the comments received, we have made no changes in 
the margin calculations. Therefore, these final results do not 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.''
    Finally, we have determined to revoke the antidumping duty order 
with respect to shrimp from India produced and exported by Devi Sea 
Foods Limited (Devi) and to rescind the review with respect to 41 
firms.

DATES: Effective Date: July 19, 2010.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Elizabeth Eastwood or Henry Almond, 
AD/CVD Operations, Office 2, Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and 
Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone (202) 482-
3874 or (202) 482-0049, respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    This review covers 159 producers/exporters. The respondents which 
the Department selected for individual examination are Devi, Falcon 
Marine Exports Limited (Falcon), and the Liberty Group.\2\ The 
respondents which were not selected for individual review are listed in 
the ``Final Results of Review'' section of this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ The Liberty Group consists of the following companies: Devi 
Marine Food Exports Private Limited, Kader Exports Private Limited, 
Kader Investment and Trading Company Private Limited, Liberty Frozen 
Foods Private Limited, Liberty Oil Mills Ltd., Premier Marine 
Products, and Universal Cold Storage Private Limited (collectively, 
``the Liberty Group'').
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On March 15, 2010, 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 of Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review, Partial Rescission of Review, Notice of Intent to Rescind 
Review in Part, and Notice of Intent to Revoke Order in Part, 75 FR 
12175 (Mar. 15, 2010) (Preliminary Results).
    We invited parties to comment on the Preliminary Results of review. 
In April 2009, we received case and rebuttal briefs from the Ad Hoc 
Shrimp Trade Action Committee (the Petitioner) and the American Shrimp 
Processors Association (ASPA)/the Louisiana Shrimp Association (LSA). 
We also received a case brief from the Liberty Group and a rebuttal 
brief from Devi.
    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,\3\ deveined or not deveined, cooked or raw, or 
otherwise processed in frozen form.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ ``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 ten 
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, 2008, through January 31, 2009.

Partial Rescission

    In the Preliminary Results, we stated our intention to rescind the 
review with respect to the following companies, which reported to the 
Department that they had no shipments during the POR:

(1) Abad Fisheries
(2) Allanna Frozen Foods Pvt. Ltd.
(3) Allansons Ltd.
(4) Amulya Sea Foods
(5) Anjaneya Seafoods
(6) Baby Marine (Eastern) Exports
(7) Baby Marine Exports
(8) Baby Marine International
(9) Baby Marine Products
(10) Baby Marine Sarass
(11) Baraka Overseas Traders
(12) Blue Water Foods & Exports P. Ltd.
(13) BMR Exports
(14) Coreline Exports
(15) Frigerio Conserva Allana Ltd.
(16) G A Randerian Ltd.
(17) G.K S Business Associates Pvt. Ltd.
(18) Hiravata Ice & Cold Storage
(19) Hiravati Exports Pvt. Ltd.
(20) Hiravati International Pvt. Ltd. (located at Jawar Naka, 
Porbandar, Gujarat, 360 575, India)
(21) Indian Aquatic Products
(22) Innovative Foods Limited
(23) Interseas
(24) K R M Marine Exports Ltd.
(25) K V Marine Exports
(26) Kalyanee Marine
(27) L. G Seafoods
(28) Lewis Natural Foods Ltd.
(29) Libran Cold Storages (P) Ltd.
(30) Lourde Exports
(31) Sanchita Marine Products P Ltd
(32) Silver Seafood
(33) Sterling Foods
(34) Veejay Impex
(35) Veraval Marines & Chemicals P Ltd

    Further, we stated our intention to rescind the review for the 
following firms because we initiated multiple reviews for these 
companies: \4\ (1) Devi Fisheries Limited; (2) Premier Marine Products; 
(3) Ram's Assorted Cold Storage Ltd.; (4) Satya Sea Foods Pvt. Limited; 
and (5) Usha Sea Foods. We stated our intention to rescind the review 
for Calcutta Seafoods because this company no longer exists and is now 
doing business as Calcutta Seafoods Pvt. Ltd.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ We initiated separate administrative reviews for these 
companies because the petitioner and/or the respondent listed 
separate addresses for the same company in their review requests. We 
subsequently clarified the correct addresses for these companies and 
are rescinding the review with respect to these duplicate company 
names (i.e., these companies are included in this administrative 
review only once). See Preliminary Results, 75 FR at 12178-12179.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Since the Preliminary Results we have received no comments 
regarding our stated intention to rescind the review for each of the 
firms listed above. Therefore, the Department is rescinding this review 
with respect to the 41 firms listed above.

Duty Absorption

    In our Preliminary Results, we preliminarily found that there was 
no duty absorption applicable to Devi's U.S. sales because we 
preliminarily determined that there is no dumping margin with respect 
to Devi's U.S. sales during the current administrative review. See 
Preliminary Results, 75 FR at 12179-12180. Because we continue to find 
that there is no dumping margin with respect to Devi's U.S. sales 
during this POR, we also continue to find that there is no duty 
absorption applicable to Devi's U.S. sales.

Determination To Revoke Order, in Part

    The Department may revoke, in whole or in part, an antidumping duty 
order upon completion of a review under section 751 of the Act. While 
Congress has not specified the procedures that the Department must 
follow in revoking an order, the Department has developed a procedure 
for revocation that is described in 19 CFR 351.222. This regulation 
requires, inter alia, that a company requesting revocation must submit 
the following: (1) A certification that the company has sold the 
subject merchandise at not less than normal value (NV) in the current 
review period and that the company will not sell subject merchandise at 
less than NV in the future; (2) a certification that the company sold 
commercial quantities of the subject merchandise to the United States 
in each of the three years forming the basis of the request; and (3) an 
agreement to immediate reinstatement of the order if the Department 
concludes that the company, subsequent to the revocation, sold subject 
merchandise at less than NV. See 19 CFR 351.222(e)(1). Upon receipt of 
such a request to revoke an order in part, the Department will 
consider: (1) Whether the company in question has sold subject 
merchandise at not less than NV for a period of at least three 
consecutive years; (2) whether the company has agreed in writing to its 
immediate reinstatement in the order, as long as any exporter or 
producer is subject to the order, if the Department concludes that the 
company, subsequent to the revocation, sold the subject merchandise at 
less than NV; and (3) whether the continued application of the 
antidumping duty order is otherwise necessary to offset dumping. See 19 
CFR 351.222(b)(2)(i). See also Sebacic Acid From the People's Republic 
of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and 
Determination To Revoke Order in Part, 67 FR 69719, 69720 (Nov. 19, 
2002).
    We have determined that the request from Devi meet all of the 
criteria for revocation under 19 CFR 351.222. With regard to the 
criteria of subsection 19 CFR 351.222(b)(2), our final margin 
calculations show that Devi sold shrimp at not less than NV during the 
current review period. In addition, Devi sold shrimp at not less than 
NV in the two previous administrative reviews (i.e., Devi's dumping 
margins were zero or de minimis). See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp 
From India: Final Results and Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review, 74 FR 33409, 33411 (July 13, 2009) and Certain 
Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From India: Final Results and Partial 
Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 73 FR 40492, 
40495 (July 15, 2008). Also, we find that application of the 
antidumping duty order to Devi is no longer warranted because: (1) Devi 
has agreed to immediate reinstatement of the order if the Department 
finds that it has resumed making sales at less than NV; and (2) the 
continued application of the order is not otherwise necessary to offset 
dumping. Therefore, we find that Devi qualifies for revocation of the 
antidumping duty order on shrimp from India under 19 CFR 351.222(b)(2). 
Accordingly, we are revoking the order with respect to subject 
merchandise produced and exported by Devi. For further discussion, see 
the Issues and Decision Memorandum (Decision Memo) accompanying this 
notice at Comment 3.

Effective Date of Revocation

    This revocation applies to all entries of subject merchandise that 
are produced and exported by Devi, and are entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after February 1, 2009. The Department 
will order the suspension of liquidation lifted for all such entries 
and will instruct U.S. Customer and Border Protection (CBP) to release 
any cash deposits or bonds. The Department will further instruct CBP to 
refund with interest any cash

[[Page 41815]]

deposits on entries made on or after February 1, 2009.

Cost of Production

    As discussed in the Preliminary Results, we conducted an 
investigation to determine whether Devi, Falcon, and the Liberty Group 
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, 75 FR at 12182-
12183. For these final results, we performed the cost test following 
the same methodology as in the Preliminary Results.
    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 continue to find 
that Devi, Falcon, and the Liberty Group 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 NV pursuant to section 773(b)(1) of the Act. For those U.S. 
sales of subject merchandise for which there were no third country 
sales in the ordinary course of trade, we compared constructed export 
prices or export prices, as appropriate, to constructed value in 
accordance with section 773(a)(4) of the Act.

Assessment

    The Department shall determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries.
    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), because Devi, Falcon, and the 
Liberty Group reported the entered value for 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. 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 entered value.
    For the 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 
adverse facts available.
    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.
    Because we have revoked the order with respect to subject 
merchandise produced and exported by Devi, we will instruct CBP to 
terminate the suspension of liquidation for imports of such merchandise 
entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after 
February 1, 2009, and to refund all cash deposits collected.
    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. In such instances, we will instruct CBP 
to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate established in 
the less-than-fair-value (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 (except

[[Page 41818]]

shipments from Devi, as noted above) 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 13, 2010.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
