On July 1, 2011, the ITC determined, pursuant to section 751(c)(1) of the Act, that revocation of the antidumping duty order on certain cased pencils from the PRC would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time. See Cased Pencils from China, 76 FR 38697 (July 1, 2011), and USITC Publication 4239 (June 2011), Cased Pencils from China, Investigation No. 731–TA–669 (Third Review). emcdonald on DSK2BSOYB1PROD with NOTICES Scope of the Order Imports covered by the order are shipments of certain cased pencils of any shape or dimension (except as described below) which are writing and/ or drawing instruments that feature cores of graphite or other materials, encased in wood and/or man-made materials, whether or not decorated and whether or not tipped (e.g., with erasers, etc.) in any fashion, and either sharpened or unsharpened. The pencils subject to the order are currently classifiable under subheading 9609.10.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’). Specifically excluded from the scope of the order are mechanical pencils, cosmetic pencils, pens, noncased crayons (wax), pastels, charcoals, chalks, and pencils produced under U.S. patent number 6,217,242, from paper infused with scents by the means covered in the above-referenced patent, thereby having odors distinct from those that may emanate from pencils lacking the scent infusion. Also excluded from the scope of the order are pencils with all of the following physical characteristics: (1) Length: 13.5 or more inches; (2) sheath diameter: not less than one-and-one quarter inches at any point (before sharpening); and (3) core length: Not more than 15 percent of the length of the pencil. In addition, pencils with all of the following physical characteristics are excluded from the scope of the order: Novelty jumbo pencils that are octagonal in shape, approximately ten inches long, one inch in diameter before sharpening, and three-and-one eighth inches in circumference, composed of turned wood encasing one-and-one half inches of sharpened lead on one end and a rubber eraser on the other end.

VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:14 Jul 11, 2011 Jkt 223001 Continuation of the Order As a result of these determinations by the Department and the ITC that revocation of the antidumping duty order would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping and material injury to an industry in the United States, pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the Act, the Department hereby orders the continuation of the antidumping order on certain cased pencils from the PRC. U.S. Customs and Border Protection will continue to collect antidumping duty cash deposits at the rates in effect at the time of entry for all imports of subject merchandise. The effective date of the continuation of the order will be the date of publication in the Federal Register of this notice of continuation. Pursuant to sections 751(c)(2) and 751(c)(6) of the Act, the Department intends to initiate the next five-year review of the order not later than 30 days prior to the fifth anniversary of the effective date of continuation. This five-year (sunset) review and this notice are in accordance with section 751(c) of the Act and published pursuant to section 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: July 6, 2011. Ronald K.

SUMMARY: On March 4, 2011, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp (shrimp) from Thailand. This review covers 152 producers/exporters of the subject merchandise to the United States. The period of review (POR) is February 1, 2009, through January 31, 2010. Based on our analysis of the comments received on the preliminary results, we have made certain changes in the margin calculations. Therefore, the final results differ from the AGENCY: PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 40881 preliminary results. The final weightedaverage dumping margins for the reviewed firms are listed below in the section entitled ‘‘Final Results of Review.’’ DATES: Effective Date: July 12, 2011.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background This review covers 152 producers/ exporters. The respondents which the Department selected for individual examination are Marine Gold Products, Ltd. (MRG) and Pakfood Public Company Limited and its affiliated subsidiaries (collectively, ‘‘Pakfood’’).1 The respondents which were not selected for individual examination are listed in the ‘‘Final Results of Review’’ section of this notice. On March 4, 2011, the Department published in the Federal Register the preliminary results of administrative review of the antidumping duty order on shrimp from Thailand. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From Thailand: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Preliminary No Shipment Determination, 76 FR 12033 (Mar. 4, 2011) (Preliminary Results). We invited parties to comment on the Preliminary Results. In April 2011, we received case and rebuttal briefs from the Ad Hoc Shrimp Trade Action Committee (the petitioner), the American Shrimp Processors Association and the Louisiana Shrimp Association (collectively, ‘‘the processors’’), MRG, and Pakfood. The Department has conducted this administrative review in accordance with section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). 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,2 1 These subsidiaries are: Asia Pacific (Thailand) Company Ltd., Chaophraya Cold Storage Co., Ltd., Okeanos Co., Ltd., Okeanos Food Co., Ltd., and Takzin Samut Co., Ltd. 2 ‘‘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 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, 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:14 Jul 11, 2011 Jkt 223001 between four and ten 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, 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 this order is dispositive. Period of Review The POR is February 1, 2009, through January 31, 2010. Determination of No Shipments As noted in the Preliminary Results, we received no-shipment claims from 14 companies named in the Initiation Notice, and we confirmed the claims from 12 of these companies with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Because we find that the record indicates that these 12 companies did not export subject merchandise to the United States during the POR, we determine that they had no reviewable transactions during the POR. These companies are: (1) American Commercial Transport, Inc. (2) Ampai Frozen Food Co., Ltd. (3) Far East Cold Storage Co., Ltd. (4) Grobest Frozen Foods Co., Ltd. (5) Inter-Oceanic Resources Co., Ltd. (6) Leo Transport Corporation Ltd.3 (7) Mahachai Food Processing Co., Ltd. (8) S. Khonkaen Food Industry Public Co., Ltd. (9) Siam Marine Frozen Foods Co., Ltd. (10) Siam Ocean Frozen Foods Co. Ltd. (11) Thai Union Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (12) V. Thai Food Product Co., Ltd.4 See Preliminary Results, 76 FR at 12035–12036. As we stated in the Preliminary Results, our former practice concerning respondents submitting timely noshipment certifications was to rescind 3 This company was listed in the Initiation Notice as Leo Transports. 4 This company was listed in the Initiation Notice as V Thai Food Product. PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the administrative review with respect to those companies if we were able to confirm the no-shipment certifications through a no-shipment inquiry with CBP. See Antidumping Duties; Countervailing Duties; Final rule, 62 FR 27296, 27393 (May 19, 1997); see also Stainless Steel Sheet and Strip in Coils from Taiwan: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 76700, 76701 (Dec. 9, 2010). As a result, in such circumstances, we normally instructed CBP to liquidate any entries from the no-shipment company at the deposit rate in effect on the date of entry. In our May 6, 2003, clarification of the ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation, we explained that, where respondents in an administrative review demonstrate that they had no knowledge of sales through resellers to the United States, we would instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the all-others rate applicable to the proceeding. See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003) (Assessment Policy Notice). As noted in the Preliminary Results, because ‘‘as entered’’ liquidation instructions do not alleviate the concerns which the May 2003 clarification was intended to address, we find it appropriate in this case to instruct CBP to liquidate any existing entries of merchandise produced by the above listed companies and exported by other parties at the all-others rate. In addition, we continue to find that it is more consistent with the May 2003 clarification not to rescind the review in part in these circumstances but, rather, to complete the review with respect to the 12 companies listed above and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of this administrative review. See the ‘‘Assessment Rates’’ section of this notice below. With respect to the two companies which submitted deficient statements of no shipments during the POR, A. Wattanachai Frozen Products Co., Ltd. (Wattanachai) and Calsonic Kansei (Thailand) Co., Ltd.’s (Calsonic), we continue to find that there is insufficient evidence on the record of this review to conclude that these companies made no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. Therefore, we are continuing to include both companies in this administrative review for the final results. Cost of Production As discussed in the Preliminary Results, we conducted an investigation to determine whether MRG and Pakfood E:\FR\FM\12JYN1.SGM 12JYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 133 / Tuesday, July 12, 2011 / Notices made home market sales of the foreign like product during the POR at prices below their costs of production (COP) within the meaning of section 773(b) of the Act. See Preliminary Results, 76 FR at 12039–12040. For these final results, we performed the cost test following the same methodology as in the Preliminary Results. We found 20 percent or more of each respondent’s sales of a given product during the reporting period were at prices less than the weighted-average COP for this period. Thus, we determined that these below-cost sales were made in ‘‘substantial quantities’’ within an extended period of time and at prices which did not permit the recovery of all costs within a reasonable period of time in the normal course of trade. See sections 773(b)(1)–(2) of the Act. Therefore, for purposes of these final results, we continue to find that MRG and Pakfood made below-cost sales not in the ordinary course of trade. Consequently, we disregarded these sales for each respondent and used the remaining sales as the basis for determining NV pursuant to section 773(b)(1) of the Act. For those U.S. sales of subject merchandise for which there were no home market sales in the ordinary course of trade, we compared constructed export prices or export prices, as appropriate, to constructed value in accordance with section 773(a)(4) of the Act.

Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), because MRG and Pakfood reported the entered value for certain of their U.S. sales, we have calculated importerspecific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of the sales for which entered value was reported. To determine whether the duty assessment rates are de minimis, in accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we have calculated importer-specific ad valorem ratios based on the entered value. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:14 Jul 11, 2011 Jkt 223001 For the remainder of MRG’s and Pakfood’s U.S. sales, we note that these companies did not report the entered value for the U.S. sales in question. Therefore, we have calculated importerspecific per-unit duty assessment rates by aggregating the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales and dividing this amount by the total quantity of those sales. With respect to MRG’s and Pakfood’s U.S. sales of shrimp with sauce for which no entered value was reported, we have included the total quantity of the merchandise with sauce in the denominator of the calculation of the importer-specific rate because CBP will apply the per-unit duty rate to the total quantity of merchandise entered, including the sauce weight. To determine whether the duty assessment PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 rates are de minimis, in accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we have calculated importer-specific ad valorem ratios based on the estimated entered value. For the companies which were not selected for individual review, we have assigned these companies Pakfood’s rate for the final results, as this rate is the only calculated rate above de minimis. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we will instruct CBP to liquidate without regard to antidumping duties any entries for which the assessment rate is de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent). The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final results of review.

See Assessment Policy Notice. This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by companies included in these final results of review for which the reviewed companies did not know their merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the allothers rate established in the Section 129 Determination 6 if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. emcdonald on DSK2BSOYB1PROD with NOTICES Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of subject merchandise 7 entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of this administrative review, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rates for the reviewed companies will be the rates shown above, except if the rate is less than 0.50 percent, de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), the cash deposit will be zero; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not listed above, as well as those companies listed in the ‘‘Determination of No Shipments’’ section, above, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, or the less-than-fair-value investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent period for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 5.34 percent, the all-others rate made effective by the Section 129 Determination.

Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From Thailand: Final Results of 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Final No Shipment 
Determination

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

SUMMARY: On March 4, 2011, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp (shrimp) from 
Thailand. This review covers 152 producers/exporters of the subject 
merchandise to the United States. The period of review (POR) is 
February 1, 2009, through January 31, 2010.
    Based on our analysis of the comments received on the preliminary 
results, we have made certain changes in the margin calculations. 
Therefore, the final results differ from the preliminary results. The 
final weighted-average dumping margins for the reviewed firms are 
listed below in the section entitled ``Final Results of Review.''

DATES: Effective Date: July 12, 2011.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Blaine Wiltse or Holly Phelps, AD/CVD 
Operations, Office 2, Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and 
Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone (202) 482-
6345 or (202) 482-0656, respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    This review covers 152 producers/exporters. The respondents which 
the Department selected for individual examination are Marine Gold 
Products, Ltd. (MRG) and Pakfood Public Company Limited and its 
affiliated subsidiaries (collectively, ``Pakfood'').\1\ The respondents 
which were not selected for individual examination are listed in the 
``Final Results of Review'' section of this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ These subsidiaries are: Asia Pacific (Thailand) Company 
Ltd., Chaophraya Cold Storage Co., Ltd., Okeanos Co., Ltd., Okeanos 
Food Co., Ltd., and Takzin Samut Co., Ltd.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On March 4, 2011, the Department published in the Federal Register 
the preliminary results of administrative review of the antidumping 
duty order on shrimp from Thailand. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp 
From Thailand: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review and Preliminary No Shipment Determination, 76 FR 12033 (Mar. 4, 
2011) (Preliminary Results). We invited parties to comment on the 
Preliminary Results.
    In April 2011, we received case and rebuttal briefs from the Ad Hoc 
Shrimp Trade Action Committee (the petitioner), the American Shrimp 
Processors Association and the Louisiana Shrimp Association 
(collectively, ``the processors''), MRG, and Pakfood.
    The Department has conducted this administrative review in 
accordance with section 751 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act).

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,\2\

[[Page 40882]]

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

    \2\ ``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 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, 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 ten 
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, 
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 this order is 
dispositive.

Period of Review

    The POR is February 1, 2009, through January 31, 2010.

Determination of No Shipments

    As noted in the Preliminary Results, we received no-shipment claims 
from 14 companies named in the Initiation Notice, and we confirmed the 
claims from 12 of these companies with U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP). Because we find that the record indicates that these 
12 companies did not export subject merchandise to the United States 
during the POR, we determine that they had no reviewable transactions 
during the POR. These companies are:

(1) American Commercial Transport, Inc.
(2) Ampai Frozen Food Co., Ltd.
(3) Far East Cold Storage Co., Ltd.
(4) Grobest Frozen Foods Co., Ltd.
(5) Inter-Oceanic Resources Co., Ltd.
(6) Leo Transport Corporation Ltd.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ This company was listed in the Initiation Notice as Leo 
Transports.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

(7) Mahachai Food Processing Co., Ltd.
(8) S. Khonkaen Food Industry Public Co., Ltd.
(9) Siam Marine Frozen Foods Co., Ltd.
(10) Siam Ocean Frozen Foods Co. Ltd.
(11) Thai Union Manufacturing Co., Ltd.
(12) V. Thai Food Product Co., Ltd.\4\

    \4\ This company was listed in the Initiation Notice as V Thai 
Food Product.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
See Preliminary Results, 76 FR at 12035-12036.

    As we stated in the Preliminary Results, our former practice 
concerning respondents submitting timely no-shipment certifications was 
to rescind the administrative review with respect to those companies if 
we were able to confirm the no-shipment certifications through a no-
shipment inquiry with CBP. See Antidumping Duties; Countervailing 
Duties; Final rule, 62 FR 27296, 27393 (May 19, 1997); see also 
Stainless Steel Sheet and Strip in Coils from Taiwan: Final Results of 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 76700, 76701 (Dec. 9, 
2010). As a result, in such circumstances, we normally instructed CBP 
to liquidate any entries from the no-shipment company at the deposit 
rate in effect on the date of entry.
    In our May 6, 2003, clarification of the ``automatic assessment'' 
regulation, we explained that, where respondents in an administrative 
review demonstrate that they had no knowledge of sales through 
resellers to the United States, we would instruct CBP to liquidate such 
entries at the all-others rate applicable to the proceeding. See 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of 
Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003) (Assessment Policy 
Notice).
    As noted in the Preliminary Results, because ``as entered'' 
liquidation instructions do not alleviate the concerns which the May 
2003 clarification was intended to address, we find it appropriate in 
this case to instruct CBP to liquidate any existing entries of 
merchandise produced by the above listed companies and exported by 
other parties at the all-others rate. In addition, we continue to find 
that it is more consistent with the May 2003 clarification not to 
rescind the review in part in these circumstances but, rather, to 
complete the review with respect to the 12 companies listed above and 
issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of 
this administrative review. See the ``Assessment Rates'' section of 
this notice below.
    With respect to the two companies which submitted deficient 
statements of no shipments during the POR, A. Wattanachai Frozen 
Products Co., Ltd. (Wattanachai) and Calsonic Kansei (Thailand) Co., 
Ltd.'s (Calsonic), we continue to find that there is insufficient 
evidence on the record of this review to conclude that these companies 
made no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during 
the POR. Therefore, we are continuing to include both companies in this 
administrative review for the final results.

Cost of Production

    As discussed in the Preliminary Results, we conducted an 
investigation to determine whether MRG and Pakfood

[[Page 40883]]

made home market sales of the foreign like product during the POR at 
prices below their costs of production (COP) within the meaning of 
section 773(b) of the Act. See Preliminary Results, 76 FR at 12039-
12040. For these final results, we performed the cost test following 
the same methodology as in the Preliminary Results.
    We found 20 percent or more of each respondent's sales of a given 
product during the reporting period were at prices less than the 
weighted-average COP for this period. Thus, we determined that these 
below-cost sales were made in ``substantial quantities'' within an 
extended period of time and at prices which did not permit the recovery 
of all costs within a reasonable period of time in the normal course of 
trade. See sections 773(b)(1)-(2) of the Act.
    Therefore, for purposes of these final results, we continue to find 
that MRG and Pakfood made below-cost sales not in the ordinary course 
of trade. Consequently, we disregarded these sales for each respondent 
and used the remaining sales as the basis for determining NV pursuant 
to section 773(b)(1) of the Act. For those U.S. sales of subject 
merchandise for which there were no home market sales in the ordinary 
course of trade, we compared constructed export prices or export 
prices, as appropriate, to constructed value in accordance with section 
773(a)(4) of the Act.

Assessment Rates

    The Department shall determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries.
    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), because MRG and Pakfood reported 
the entered value for certain of their U.S. sales, we have calculated 
importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio 
of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined 
sales to the total entered value of the sales for which entered value 
was reported. To determine whether the duty assessment rates are de 
minimis, in accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 
351.106(c)(2), we have calculated importer-specific ad valorem ratios 
based on the entered value.
    For the remainder of MRG's and Pakfood's U.S. sales, we note that 
these companies did not report the entered value for the U.S. sales in 
question. Therefore, we have calculated importer-specific per-unit duty 
assessment rates by aggregating the total amount of antidumping duties 
calculated for the examined sales and dividing this amount by the total 
quantity of those sales. With respect to MRG's and Pakfood's U.S. sales 
of shrimp with sauce for which no entered value was reported, we have 
included the total quantity of the merchandise with sauce in the 
denominator of the calculation of the importer-specific rate because 
CBP will apply the per-unit duty rate to the total quantity of 
merchandise entered, including the sauce weight. To determine whether 
the duty assessment rates are de minimis, in accordance with the 
requirement set forth in 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we have calculated 
importer-specific ad valorem ratios based on the estimated entered 
value.
    For the companies which were not selected for individual review, we 
have assigned these companies Pakfood's rate for the final results, as 
this rate is the only calculated rate above de minimis.
    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we will instruct CBP to liquidate 
without regard to antidumping duties any entries for which the 
assessment rate is de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent). The 
Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days 
after the date of publication of these final results of review.
    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on

[[Page 40886]]

May 6, 2003. See Assessment Policy Notice. This clarification will 
apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by 
companies included in these final results of review for which the 
reviewed companies did not know their merchandise was destined for the 
United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate 
unreviewed entries at the all-others rate established in the Section 
129 Determination \6\ if there is no rate for the intermediate 
company(ies) involved in the transaction.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Implementation of the Findings of the WTO Panel in 
United States Antidumping Measure on Shrimp from Thailand: Notice of 
Determination under Section 129 of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act 
and Partial Revocation of the Antidumping Duty Order on Frozen 
Warmwater Shrimp from Thailand, 74 FR 5638 (Jan. 30, 2009) (Section 
129 Determination).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of subject merchandise \7\ entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the 
final results of this administrative review, as provided for by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rates for the reviewed 
companies will be the rates shown above, except if the rate is less 
than 0.50 percent, de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 
351.106(c)(1), the cash deposit will be zero; (2) for previously 
reviewed or investigated companies not listed above, as well as those 
companies listed in the ``Determination of No Shipments'' section, 
above, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific 
rate published for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a 
firm covered in this review, or the less-than-fair-value investigation, 
but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate 
established for the most recent period for the manufacturer of the 
merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers 
or exporters will continue to be 5.34 percent, the all-others rate made 
effective by the Section 129 Determination. These deposit requirements 
shall remain in effect until further notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ On April 26, 2011, the Department amended the scope of the 
antidumping duty orders on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from 
Brazil, India, the People's Republic of China, Thailand, and the 
Socialist Republic of Vietnam to include dusted shrimp within the 
scope of the orders. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From 
Brazil, India, the People's Republic of China, Thailand, and the 
Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Amended Antidumping Duty Orders in 
Accordance with Final Court Decision, 76 FR 23277, 23279 (Apr. 26, 
2011). Accordingly, for all entries made on or after April 26, 2011, 
we will instruct CBP to collect cash deposits on imports of the 
subject merchandise (including dusted shrimp) entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption at the rates noted above.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility, under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2), to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written 
notification of return/destruction of APO materials or conversion to 
judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with 
the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.
    We are issuing and publishing these results of review in accordance 
with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: July 5, 2011.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
