See Notice of Clarification: Application of ‘‘Next Business Day’’ Rule for Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant to the Tariff Act of 1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005). DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE Extension of Time Limit for the Preliminary Results Department of Commerce (the Department) published a notice of preliminary results of changed circumstances review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp (shrimp) from India. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From India: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review, 75 FR 44229 (July 28, 2010) (Preliminary Results). In that notice, we preliminarily determined that Srikanth International (Srikanth) is the successor-in-interest to NGR Aqua International (NGR) for purposes of determining antidumping liability. No interested party submitted comments on, or requested a public hearing to discuss, the Preliminary Results.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: WReier-Aviles on DSKGBLS3C1PROD with NOTICES Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and section 351.214(i)(1) of the Department’s regulations require the Department to issue the preliminary results of a review within 180 days after the date on which the new shipper review was initiated, and final results of the review within 90 days after the date on which the preliminary results were issued. However, if the Department concludes that a new shipper review is extraordinarily complicated, section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and section 351.214(i)(2) of the Department’s regulations allow the Department to extend the 180-day period to 300 days, and to extend the 90-day period to 150 days. This review is extraordinarily complicated because the Department is analyzing certain programs not previously examined and evaluated in this proceeding. Therefore, the Department is extending the deadline for completion of the preliminary results of this new shipper review by a total of 85 days. Further, the Department intends to conduct a verification of the information SRF provided on the record. Accordingly, the deadline for the completion of these preliminary results is now no later than November 22, 2010. This notice is issued and published pursuant to sections 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: August 18, 2010. Edward C.

On April 1, 2010, the Department initiated a changed circumstances review but did not expedite the review, as requested by Srikanth, because questions remained regarding the completeness of the factual statements forming the basis of Srikanth’s changed circumstances review request.

On July 28, 2010, the Department preliminarily determined that Srikanth is the successor-in-interest to NGR for purposes of determining antidumping liability. See Preliminary Results, 75 FR at 44230. In the Preliminary Results, we provided all interested parties with an opportunity to comment or request a public hearing regarding our finding that Srikanth is the successor-in-interest to NGR. We received no comments or requests for a public hearing from interested parties within the time period set forth in the Preliminary Results. 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,1 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 white shrimp (Penaeus occidentalis), and Indian white prawn (Penaeus indicus).

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.

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. Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review For the reasons stated in the Preliminary Results, and because we received no comments from interested parties to the contrary, the Department continues to find that Srikanth is the successor-in-interest to NGR. As a result of this determination, we find that Srikanth should receive the cash deposit rate previously assigned to NGR in the VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:33 Aug 26, 2010 Jkt 220001 most recently completed review of the antidumping duty order on shrimp from India.

(shrimp) from India. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From India: 
Final Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review, 75 FR 
44229 (July 28, 2010) (Preliminary Results). In that notice, we 
preliminarily determined that Srikanth International (Srikanth) is the 
successor-in-interest to NGR Aqua International (NGR) for purposes of 
determining antidumping liability. No interested party submitted 
comments on, or requested a public hearing to discuss, the Preliminary 
Results. Therefore, for these final results, the Department continues

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On February 3, 2010, Srikanth requested that the Department conduct 
an expedited changed circumstances review under 19 CFR 
351.221(c)(3)(iii) to determine whether it is the successor-in-interest 
to NGR for purposes of determining antidumping liability. On April 1, 
2010, the Department initiated a changed circumstances review but did 
not expedite the review, as requested by Srikanth, because questions 
remained regarding the completeness of the factual statements forming 
the basis of Srikanth's changed circumstances review request. See 
Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From India: Initiation of Antidumping 
Duty Changed Circumstances Review, 75 FR 16436 (Apr. 1, 2010).
    On April 19 and June 3, 2010, we requested further information and 
documentation from Srikanth to substantiate its claim to be the 
successor-in-interest to NGR. Srikanth submitted this information on 
May 6 and June 17, 2010, respectively. On July 28, 2010, the Department 
preliminarily determined that Srikanth is the successor-in-interest to 
NGR for purposes of determining antidumping liability. See Preliminary 
Results, 75 FR at 44230. In the Preliminary Results, we provided all 
interested parties with an opportunity to comment or request a public 
hearing regarding our finding that Srikanth is the successor-in-
interest to NGR. We received no comments or requests for a public 
hearing from interested parties within the time period set forth in the 
Preliminary Results.

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,\1\ deveined or not deveined, cooked or raw, or 
otherwise processed in frozen form.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ ``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

[[Page 52719]]

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,

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.

Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review

    For the reasons stated in the Preliminary Results, and because we 
received no comments from interested parties to the contrary, the 
Department continues to find that Srikanth is the successor-in-interest 
to NGR. As a result of this determination, we find that Srikanth should 
receive the cash deposit rate previously assigned to NGR in the most 
recently completed review of the antidumping duty order on shrimp from 
India. See 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, 75 FR 41813, 41816 (Jul. 19, 
2010). Consequently, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection to suspend liquidation of all shipments of subject 
merchandise produced and exported by Srikanth and entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of 
this notice in the Federal Register at 2.67 percent, which is the 
current cash deposit rate for NGR. See, e.g., Final Results of 
Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review: Certain Circular Welded 
Non-Alloy Steel Pipe and Tube From Mexico, 74 FR 41681, 41682 (Aug., 
18, 2009). This cash deposit requirement shall remain in effect until 
further notice.
    We are issuing this determination and publishing these final 
results and notice in accordance with sections 751(b)(1) and 777(i)(1) 
and (2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.216 and 
351.221(c)(3).
