SUMMARY: On January 4, 2010, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published the notice of initiation of the first sunset review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (‘‘Vietnam’’). On the basis of the notices of intent to participate by domestic interested parties and adequate substantive responses filed on behalf of the domestic and respondent interested parties, the Department conducted a full sunset review of the antidumping duty order pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(2)(i). As a result of this sunset review, the Department finds that revocation of the antidumping duty order would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at the levels listed below in the section entitled ‘‘Final Results of Review.’’ AGENCY: Effective Date: December 7, 2010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: emcdonald on DSK2BSOYB1PROD with NOTICES Background On January 4, 2010, the Department published in the Federal Register the notice of initiation of its sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Brazil, the People’s Republic of China, India, Thailand, and Vietnam, in accordance with section 751(c) of the Act. See Initiation of Five-Year VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:39 Dec 06, 2010 Jkt 223001 (‘‘Sunset’’) Review, 75 FR 103 (January 4, 2010) (‘‘Notice of Initiation’’). The Department received notices of intent to participate from domestic interested parties, the Ad Hoc Shrimp Trade Action Committee (‘‘AHSTAC’’), and the American Shrimp Processors Association (‘‘ASPA’’), within the 15-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i). The domestic interested parties claimed interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act, as manufacturers of a domesticlike product in the United States. The Department received substantive responses to the Notice of Initiation from respondent interested parties (collectively ‘‘Vietnamese Respondents’’) and domestic interested parties within the 30-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). On February 12, 2010, Vietnamese Respondents and ASPA filed rebuttal comments to parties’ substantive responses. 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(A) provides that the Secretary normally will conclude that respondent interested parties have provided adequate response to a notice of initiation where the Department receives complete substantive responses from respondent interested parties accounting on average for more than 50 percent, by volume, or value, if appropriate, of the total exports of the subject merchandise to the United States over the five calendar years preceding the year of publication of the notice of initiation. On March 2, 2010, the Department determined that Vietnamese Respondents accounted for more than 50 percent of exports by volume of the subject merchandise and, therefore, submitted an adequate substantive response to the Department’s Notice of Initiation. See Memorandum to James C. Doyle: Adequacy Determination in Antidumping Duty Sunset Review of Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, dated March 2, 2010. The Department also determined that domestic interested parties submitted an adequate response as at least one domestic interested party submitted a complete substantive response. See 19 CRF 351.218(e)(1)(i). In accordance with 19 CFR 351.218(e)(2)(i), the Department determined to conduct a full sunset review of this antidumping duty order. On May 6, 2010, in accordance with section 751(c)(5)(B) of the Act, the Department extended the deadlines for the preliminary and final results of this sunset review by 90 days from the scheduled dates.

See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Preliminary Results of the First Five-year ‘‘Sunset’’ Review of the Antidumping Duty Order, 75 FR 47546 (August 6, 2010) (‘‘Preliminary Results’’). In the Preliminary Results, the Department found that revocation of the order would likely result in continuation or recurrence of dumping at margins found in the original investigation. On September 7, 2010, within the deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.309(c)(1)(i), the Department received a case brief on behalf of Vietnamese Respondents. On September 13, 2010, the Department received rebuttal briefs on behalf of AHSTAC and ASPA. Scope of the Order The scope of the 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 the 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), 1 ‘‘Tails’’ in this context means the tail fan, which includes the telson and the uropods.

App. 2, to carry out the functions of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration Act, 47 U.S.C. 904(b). The Department of Commerce last renewed the CSMAC’s charter on April 6, 2009. The CSMAC advises the Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Communications and Information on a broad range of issues regarding spectrum policy. In particular, the current charter provides that the CSMAC will provide advice and recommendations on needed reforms to domestic spectrum policies and management in order to: License radio frequencies in a way that maximizes their public benefit; keep wireless networks as open to innovation as possible; and make wireless services available to all Americans. The CSMAC functions solely as an advisory body in compliance with the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA). Additional information about the CSMAC and its activities may be found at http:// www.ntia.doc.gov/advisory/spectrum. Under the terms of the charter, the Secretary appoints members of the CSMAC based on their expertise in radio spectrum policy and not to represent any organization or interest. The members serve on the CSMAC in the capacity of Special Government Employee. Members may not receive compensation or reimbursement for travel or for per diem expenses. The Secretary of Commerce appoints members for two-year terms. There are ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 4.57 25.76 currently 25 members, the maximum permitted by the charter.

Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From the Socialist Republic of 
Vietnam: Final Results of the First Five-year ``Sunset'' Review of the 
Antidumping Duty Order

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

SUMMARY: On January 4, 2010, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') published the notice of initiation of the first sunset 
review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp 
from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (``Vietnam''). On the basis of 
the notices of intent to participate by domestic interested parties and 
adequate substantive responses filed on behalf of the domestic and 
respondent interested parties, the Department conducted a full sunset 
review of the antidumping duty order pursuant to section 751(c) of the 
Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''), and 19 CFR 
351.218(e)(2)(i). As a result of this sunset review, the Department 
finds that revocation of the antidumping duty order would likely lead 
to continuation or recurrence of dumping at the levels listed below in 
the section entitled ``Final Results of Review.''

DATES: Effective Date: December 7, 2010.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jerry Huang, AD/CVD Operations, Office 
9, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. 
Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., 
Washington, DC 20230; telephone: 202-482-4047.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On January 4, 2010, the Department published in the Federal 
Register the notice of initiation of its sunset reviews of the 
antidumping duty orders on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Brazil, 
the People's Republic of China, India, Thailand, and Vietnam, in 
accordance with section 751(c) of the Act. See Initiation of Five-Year 
(``Sunset'') Review, 75 FR 103 (January 4, 2010) (``Notice of 
Initiation'').
    The Department received notices of intent to participate from 
domestic interested parties, the Ad Hoc Shrimp Trade Action Committee 
(``AHSTAC''), and the American Shrimp Processors Association 
(``ASPA''), within the 15-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 
351.218(d)(1)(i). The domestic interested parties claimed interested 
party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act, as manufacturers of a 
domestic-like product in the United States.
    The Department received substantive responses to the Notice of 
Initiation from respondent interested parties (collectively 
``Vietnamese Respondents'') and domestic interested parties within the 
30-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). On February 12, 
2010, Vietnamese Respondents and ASPA filed rebuttal comments to 
parties' substantive responses.
    19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(A) provides that the Secretary normally 
will conclude that respondent interested parties have provided adequate 
response to a notice of initiation where the Department receives 
complete substantive responses from respondent interested parties 
accounting on average for more than 50 percent, by volume, or value, if 
appropriate, of the total exports of the subject merchandise to the 
United States over the five calendar years preceding the year of 
publication of the notice of initiation. On March 2, 2010, the 
Department determined that Vietnamese Respondents accounted for more 
than 50 percent of exports by volume of the subject merchandise and, 
therefore, submitted an adequate substantive response to the 
Department's Notice of Initiation. See Memorandum to James C. Doyle: 
Adequacy Determination in Antidumping Duty Sunset Review of Certain 
Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, dated 
March 2, 2010. The Department also determined that domestic interested 
parties submitted an adequate response as at least one domestic 
interested party submitted a complete substantive response. See 19 CRF 
351.218(e)(1)(i). In accordance with 19 CFR 351.218(e)(2)(i), the 
Department determined to conduct a full sunset review of this 
antidumping duty order.
    On May 6, 2010, in accordance with section 751(c)(5)(B) of the Act, 
the Department extended the deadlines for the preliminary and final 
results of this sunset review by 90 days from the scheduled dates. See 
Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: 
Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary and Final Results of Full 
Five-year (``Sunset'') Review of Antidumping Duty Order, 75 FR 24883 
(May 6, 2010).
    The Department published the preliminary results of this sunset 
review on August 6, 2010. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the 
Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Preliminary Results of the First Five-
year ``Sunset'' Review of the Antidumping Duty Order, 75 FR 47546 
(August 6, 2010) (``Preliminary Results''). In the Preliminary Results, 
the Department found that revocation of the order would likely result 
in continuation or recurrence of dumping at margins found in the 
original investigation.
    On September 7, 2010, within the deadline specified in 19 CFR 
351.309(c)(1)(i), the Department received a case brief on behalf of 
Vietnamese Respondents. On September 13, 2010, the Department received 
rebuttal briefs on behalf of AHSTAC and ASPA.

Scope of the Order

    The scope of the 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 the 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),

[[Page 75966]]

and Indian white prawn (Penaeus indicus).
    Frozen shrimp and prawns that are packed with marinade, spices or 
sauce are included in the scope of the 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 the 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 the 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 the order is
