SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On May 28, 2010, the Department of Commerce (the ‘‘Department’’) published a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on 1hydroxyethylidene-1, 1-diphosphonic acid from the People’s Republic of China.1 The period of review is April 23, 2009, through March 31, 2010. The preliminary results of the administrative review are currently due no later than December 31, 2010. Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the ‘‘Act’’), the Department shall make a preliminary determination in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time period to a maximum of 365 days. Completion of the preliminary results of this review within the 245-day period is not practicable because the Department needs additional time to analyze information pertaining to the respondents’ sales practices and factors of production, and to issue and review responses to supplemental questionnaires. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the 1 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 75 FR 29976 (May 28, 2010).

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 1 ‘‘Tails’’ in this context means the tail fan, which includes the telson and the uropods.

Background

    On September 1, 2010, A Foods requested that the Department conduct 
an expedited changed circumstances review under 19 CFR 
351.221(c)(3)(iii) to confirm that A Foods is the successor-in-interest 
to May Ao for purposes of determining antidumping duty cash deposits 
and liabilities. On October 6, 2010, the Department initiated this 
changed circumstances review and published the notice of preliminary 
results, determining that A Foods is the successor-in-interest to May 
Ao. See Initiation and Preliminary Results, 75 FR at 61704. In the 
Initiation and Preliminary Results, we provided all interested parties 
with an opportunity to comment or request a public hearing regarding 
our finding that A Foods is the successor-in-interest to May Ao. We 
received no comments or requests for a public hearing from interested 
parties within the time period set forth in the Initiation and 
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

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

    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)

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

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,

Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review

    For the reasons stated in the Initiation and Preliminary Results, 
and because we received no comments from interested parties to the 
contrary, the Department continues to find that A Foods is the 
successor-in-interest to May Ao. As a result of this determination, we 
find that A Foods should receive the cash deposit rate previously 
assigned to May Ao in the most recently completed review of the 
antidumping duty order on shrimp from Thailand. 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). Consequently, the Department will instruct U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection to suspend liquidation of all shipments 
of subject merchandise produced/exported by A Foods and entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication 
date of this notice in the Federal Register at 2.61 percent, which is 
the current antidumping duty cash-deposit rate for May Ao. See Certain 
Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Thailand: Final Results and Partial 
Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 54847 
(Sept. 9, 2010). 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).
