DATES: Effective Date: May 26, 2011. SUMMARY: On February 14, 2011, the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (‘‘CAFC’’) affirmed the United States Court of International Trade (‘‘CIT’’) decision sustaining the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) redetermination on remand of the 2005–2006 administrative review of freshwater crawfish tail meat (‘‘crawfish tail meat’’) from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’).1 In this redetermination the Department applied total adverse facts available (‘‘AFA’’) and assigned the respondent, Xuzhou Jinjiang Foodstuffs Co., Ltd. (‘‘Xuzhou’’), an AFA rate of 188.52 percent. As there is now a final and conclusive court decision, the Department is amending its final results. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Rebecca Pandolph or Jeffrey Pedersen, AD/CVD Operations, Office 4, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–3627 and (202) 482–2769, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On April 15, 2008, the Department published its final results of the antidumping duty administrative review of crawfish tail meat from the PRC covering the period September 1, 2005, through August 31, 2006.2 In the 2005–2006 Final Results, mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: 1 See Washington International Insurance Company v. United States, Court No. 08–CV–0156, United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (Fed. Cir. February 14, 2011) (Rule 36 affirmance) ; see also Washington International Insurance Company v. United States, Court No. 08– 00156, Slip Op. 10–16 (CIT February 9, 2010) (‘‘Washington Int’l Insurance Co., Slip Op. 10–16’’). 2 See Freshwater Crawfish Tail Meat From the People’s Republic of China: Final Results and VerDate Mar<15>2010 20:04 May 25, 2011 Jkt 223001 the Department found that Xuzhou failed to report all of its U.S. sales of subject merchandise and assigned Xuzhou the highest rate in the proceeding as total AFA, i.e., the PRCwide rate of 223.01 percent. The surety to an importer of subject merchandise from Xuzhou during the 2005–2006 period of review, Washington International Insurance Company (‘‘Washington International’’) challenged the 2005–2006 Final Results and moved for judgment upon the agency record. On July 29, 2009, the CIT remanded the case for the Department to reconsider whether circumstances warranted partial or total AFA and for redetermination of an AFA rate that more closely reflected Xuzhou’s thencurrent market practices during the period of review.3 In its remand redetermination, dated October 26, 2009, the Department continued to find that total AFA was warranted because there were such extensive omissions in the submitted data that Xuzhou’s information on the record could not serve as a reasonably accurate, reliable basis for reaching a determination. However, the Department revised the AFA rate for Xuzhou to 188.52 percent. On February 9, 2010, the CIT sustained the Department’s remand redetermination, affirming both the application of total AFA and the revised AFA rate for Xuzhou.4 Consistent with the CAFC decision in Timken Co. v. United States, 893 F.2d 337 (Fed. Cir. 1990), the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of a court decision that is not ‘‘in harmony’’ with the Department’s final determination.5 In this notice, the Department stated that it would amend the 2005–2006 Final Results upon a final and conclusive court decision in this action. On April 7, 2010, Washington International filed an appeal of the CIT’s decision affirming the Department’s remand results. On February 14, 2011, the CAFC affirmed the CIT’s decision under CAFC Rule 36, which allows the Court to enter judgment of affirmance without written opinion. The period for appeal expired on May 16, 2011.

DATES: Effective Date: May 26, 2011. SUMMARY: Based on affirmative final determinations by the Department of Commerce (the ‘‘Department’’) and the International Trade Commission (‘‘ITC’’), the Department is issuing an antidumping duty order on aluminum extrusions from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). On May 13, 2010, the ITC notified the Department of its affirmative determination of material injury by reason of imports of certain aluminum extrusions from the PRC, and its negative determination of material injury, threat of material injury, or that the establishment of an industry is not materially retarded by reason of imports of finished heats sinks from the PRC.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance with sections 735(d) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘Act’’), the Department published the final determination of sales at less than fair value in the antidumping investigation of aluminum extrusions from the PRC. See Aluminum Extrusions From the People’s Republic of China: Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 76 FR 18524 (April 4, 2011) (‘‘Final Determination’’); see also Aluminum Extrusions From the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Correction to the Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 76 FR 20627 (April 13, 2011). mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: Revision of Scope On April 4, 2011, the Department published its affirmative final VerDate Mar<15>2010 20:04 May 25, 2011 Jkt 223001 determination in the investigation. See Final Determination. On May 13, 2011, the ITC notified the Department of its affirmative finding of injury with respect to imports of certain aluminum extrusions from the PRC and its negative injury finding with respect to imports of finished heat sinks from the PRC. See Aluminum Extrusions from China (Investigation No. 731–TA–1177 (Final), USITC Publication 4229 (May 2011)). Therefore, the Department is revising the scope of the subject merchandise stated in the Final Determination to exclude finished heat sinks from the scope of the order. In its instructions to the investigation questionnaire, the ITC described heat sinks as a subset of aluminum extrusions typically used in electronic equipment as a thermal controlling tool and stated that they are usually referred to as (1) heat sink blanks, (2) fabricated heat sinks, or (3) finished heat sinks.1 Heat sink blanks are the full length aluminum extrusions used to produce finished heat sinks. These are generally the pre-fabricated, pre-tested inputs in the production of heat sinks (post any stretching or aging processes applied). Fabricated heat sinks are generally understood to be any heat sink blank that has been cut-tolength, precision machined, and or otherwise fabricated to the end product specifications, but not yet tested, assembled onto other materials, or packaged. Finished heat sinks differ from fabricated heat sinks in that they have been fully, albeit not necessarily individually, tested and assured to comply with the required thermal performance end-use specifications. Only finished heat sinks are excluded from the scope of the order.2 See Scope of the Order, below. Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by the order is aluminum extrusions which are shapes and forms, produced by an extrusion process, made from aluminum alloys having metallic elements corresponding to the alloy series designations published by The Aluminum Association commencing with the numbers 1, 3, and 6 (or proprietary equivalents or other certifying body equivalents). Specifically, the subject merchandise 1 See INSTRUCTION BOOKLET: GENERAL INFORMATION, INSTRUCTIONS, AND DEFINITIONS FOR COMMISSION QUESTIONNAIRES Aluminum Extrusions from China Inv.

PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 made from aluminum alloy with an Aluminum Association series designation commencing with the number 1 contains not less than 99 percent aluminum by weight. The subject merchandise made from aluminum alloy with an Aluminum Association series designation commencing with the number 3 contains manganese as the major alloying element, with manganese accounting for not more than 3.0 percent of total materials by weight. The subject merchandise is made from an aluminum alloy with an Aluminum Association series designation commencing with the number 6 contains magnesium and silicon as the major alloying elements, with magnesium accounting for at least 0.1 percent but not more than 2.0 percent of total materials by weight, and silicon accounting for at least 0.1 percent but not more than 3.0 percent of total materials by weight. The subject aluminum extrusions are properly identified by a four-digit alloy series without either a decimal point or leading letter. Illustrative examples from among the approximately 160 registered alloys that may characterize the subject merchandise are as follows: 1350, 3003, and 6060. Aluminum extrusions are produced and imported in a wide variety of shapes and forms, including, but not limited to, hollow profiles, other solid profiles, pipes, tubes, bars, and rods. Aluminum extrusions that are drawn subsequent to extrusion (‘‘drawn aluminum’’) are also included in the scope. Aluminum extrusions are produced and imported with a variety of finishes (both coatings and surface treatments), and types of fabrication. The types of coatings and treatments applied to subject aluminum extrusions include, but are not limited to, extrusions that are mill finished (i.e., without any coating or further finishing), brushed, buffed, polished, anodized (including bright-dip anodized), liquid painted, or powder coated. Aluminum extrusions may also be fabricated, i.e., prepared for assembly. Such operations would include, but are not limited to, extrusions that are cut-to-length, machined, drilled, punched, notched, bent, stretched, knurled, swedged, mitered, chamfered, threaded, and spun. The subject merchandise includes aluminum extrusions that are finished (coated, painted, etc.), fabricated, or any combination thereof. Subject aluminum extrusions may be described at the time of importation as parts for final finished products that are assembled after importation, including, E:\FR\FM\26MYN1.SGM 26MYN1

Background

    On February 1, 2005, the Department published in the Federal 
Register the antidumping duty order for frozen warmwater shrimp from 
Vietnam. See Notice of Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less 
Than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Frozen Warmwater 
Shrimp From the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, 70 FR 5152, 5154-55 
(February 1, 2005) (``Order''). As a part of the first new shipper 
review of shrimp from Vietnam, Grobest & I-Mei received a separate 
antidumping duty cash deposit rate of zero. See Certain Frozen 
Warmwater Shrimp From the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Final Results 
of the First Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and First New 
Shipper Review, 72 FR 52052 (September 12, 2007).
    On February 28, 2011, Viet I-Mei requested that the Department 
conduct a changed circumstances review, claiming that it is the 
successor-in-interest to Grobest & I-Mei. On April 12, 2011, the 
Department initiated the changed circumstances review of Grobest & I-
Mei and preliminarily determined that Viet I-Mei was the successor-in-
interest to Grobest & I-Mei. See Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From the 
Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Initiation and Preliminary Results of 
Changed Circumstances Review, 76 FR 20318 (April 12, 2011) 
(``Preliminary Results''). In the Preliminary Results, the Department 
invited interested parties to comment. See Preliminary Results. We 
received no comments or requests for a hearing from interested parties.

Scope of the Order

    The scope of the order includes certain warmwater shrimp and 
prawns, whether frozen, 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 (``HTS''), 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 (including dusted shrimp), 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 (HTS 
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 (HTS subheadings 0306.23.00.20 and 0306.23.00.40); (4) 
shrimp and prawns in prepared meals (HTS subheading 1605.20.05.10); (5) 
dried shrimp and prawns; (6) canned warmwater shrimp and prawns (HTS 
subheading 1605.20.10.40); and (7) certain battered shrimp. Battered 
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 individually quick frozen (``IQF'') freezing immediately 
after application of the dusting layer. When dusted in accordance with 
the definition of dusting above, the battered shrimp product is also 
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 HTS subheadings: 0306.13.00.03, 0306.13.00.06,

1605.20.10.10, and 1605.20.10.30. These HTS 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 (which we 
incorporate herein by reference), and because the Department did not 
receive any comments on the Preliminary Results of this review, the 
Department continues to find that Viet I-Mei is the successor-in-
interest to Grobest & I-Mei, for purposes of the antidumping duty cash-
deposit rate. Accordingly, Viet I-Mei should receive the same 
antidumping duty treatment as Grobest & I-Mei.

Notification

    The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
that the cash deposit determination from this changed circumstances 
review will apply to all shipments of the subject merchandise produced 
and exported by Viet I-Mei Frozen Foods Co., Ltd. entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of 
the final results of this changed circumstances review. This deposit 
rate shall remain in effect until further notice.
    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (``APOs'') of their responsibility
