Extension of Time Limit for the Final Results In the Initiation, the Department stated that it would issue the final results of the review within 270 days after the date on which the changed circumstances review was initiated. However, it is not practicable to complete the review within this time period. Accordingly, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.302(b), we are extending the time limit by 55 days. The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete this review within the original time frame as it is granting interested parties seven days from the date of publication of this notice to submit comments, five additional days to submit rebuttal comments. Furthermore, the Department is providing parties the opportunity to request a hearing pertaining to these preliminary results. Consequently, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.302(b), the Department is extending the time period for issuing the final results in this review by 55 days. Therefore, the final results will be due no later than August 18, 2011.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Background On February 1, 2011, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published in the Federal Register a notice of ‘‘Opportunity to Request Administrative Review’’ of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Brazil for the period of review (POR) of February 1, 2010, through January 31, 2011. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review, 76 FR 5559 (February 1, 2011). The Department received a timely request from the Ad Hoc Shrimp Trade Action Committee (Domestic Producers) in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), for an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Brazil. On April 1, 2011, the Department published a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Brazil with respect to seven companies. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From Brazil, India and Thailand: Notice of Initiation of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews, 76 FR 18157 (April 1, 2011) (Initiation Notice). The Department stated in its initiation of this review that it intended to rely on U.S. Customs and Border Protection VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:24 Jun 29, 2011 Jkt 223001 (CBP) data to select respondents. See Initiation Notice. However, our review of the CBP database, with respect to the companies for which reviews were requested, showed no entries of certain frozen warmwater shrimp originating in Brazil, subject to AD/CVD duties, during the POR. See April 1, 2011, Memorandum to the File from Kate Johnson entitled ‘‘Release of POR Entry Data from CBP,’’ as revised on April 11, 2011. We released the results of our CBP data query to the Domestic Producers and invited them to comment on the CBP data and respondent selection, which they did on April 6, 2011. On April 12, 2011, we conducted another query of the CBP database which showed no entries of subject merchandise subject to AD/CVD duties from companies other than those for which reviews were requested. On May 24, 2011, we sent a ‘‘No Shipments Inquiry’’ to CBP to confirm that there were no shipments or entries of frozen warmwater shrimp from Brazil during the POR. We received no information from CBP to contradict the results of our data query that there were no shipments or entries of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. On June 10, 2011, we addressed the Domestic Producers’ April 6, 2011, comments in a Memorandum to James Maeder, Director, Office 2, AD/CVD Operations from Kate Johnson and Rebecca Trainor, Senior Case Analysts, Office 2, AD/CVD Operations, entitled ‘‘Intent to Rescind Administrative Review’’ and invited parties to comment on our intent to rescind this administrative review. We did not receive comments from any interested party. Rescission of Review Section 351.213(d)(3) of the Department’s regulations stipulates that the Secretary may rescind an administrative review if there were no entries, exports, or sales of the subject merchandise during the POR. As there were no entries, exports, or sales of the subject merchandise during the POR, we are rescinding this review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Brazil pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3). We intend to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of this notice of rescission of administrative review. This notice is published in accordance with section 751 of the PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4). Dated: June 24, 2011.
