This review covers 201 producers/exporters 1 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, we have made no changes to the margin calculations. Therefore, the final results do not 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 13, 2011.

This figure also treats collapsed entities as one producer/ exporter. For further discussion concerning the rescission of the review with respect to Vaibhav, see the ‘‘Partial Rescission’’ section of this notice below. VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:36 Jul 12, 2011 Jkt 223001 SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background This review covers 201 producers/ exporters. The respondents which the Department selected for individual examination are Apex Exports (Apex) and Falcon Marine Exports Limited (Falcon). 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 India. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From India: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, Partial Rescission of Review, and Preliminary No Shipment Determination, 76 FR 12025 (Mar. 4, 2011) (Preliminary Results). On March 21, 2011, in response to a request from the Department, Triveni Fisheries Pvt. Ltd. (Triveni), a respondent not selected for individual examination, clarified its previous submission to indicate that it had no shipments, entries or sales of subject merchandise during the POR. For further discussion, see the ‘‘Determination of No Shipments’’ section of this notice. In April 2011, the Department verified the cost data reported by Apex in India. We invited parties to comment on the Preliminary Results of review. In May 2011, we received case and rebuttal briefs from the Ad Hoc Shrimp Trade Action Committee (the petitioner), the American Shrimp Processors Association/the Louisiana Shrimp Association (collectively, ‘‘the processors’’), and Apex and Falcon. 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 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 2 ‘‘Tails’’ in this context means the tail fan, which includes the telson and the uropods. PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 41203 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 E:\FR\FM\13JYN1.SGM 13JYN1 41204 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 134 / Wednesday, July 13, 2011 / Notices 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. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Partial Rescission In April 2010, after receiving timely requests, the Department initiated this administrative review with respect to a number of Indian exporters/producers, including Vaibhav. See generally Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From Brazil, India, and Thailand: Notice of Initiation of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews, 76 FR 18157 (Apr. 1, 2011) (Initiation Notice). We also included Vaibhav in the list of respondents not selected for individual review in our preliminary results. See generally Preliminary Results, 76 FR at 12032. However, in the 2005–2006 administrative review, we determined that this company no longer existed. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From India: Final Results and Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 72 FR 52055, 52057 (Sept. 12, 2007). Because there is no evidence on the record to contradict this prior determination, we find that our initiation with respect to Vaibhav was in error. As a result, we have determined to rescind this review with respect to Vaibhav. Determination of No Shipments As noted in the Preliminary Results, we received no-shipment claims from 20 companies named in the Initiation Notice, and we confirmed the claims from 19 of these companies with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). With respect to the remaining company, Triveni, it appeared from CBP entry documents that shrimp produced by this company entered the United States during the POR; however, as noted in the ‘‘Background’’ section, above, Trivini clarified its no-shipment statement after the date of the Preliminary Results to indicate that it had no knowledge of any shipments, VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:36 Jul 12, 2011 Jkt 223001 entries, or sales of subject merchandise to the United States during this period. See Triveni’s letter to the Department dated March 21, 2011. Based on Triveni’s most recent submission, we find that Triveni had no reportable transactions during the POR. Therefore, because we find that the record indicates that these 20 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) Abad Fisheries Pvt. Ltd. (2) Accelerated Freeze Drying Company Ltd.3 (3) Baby Marine International (4) Baby Marine Sarass (5) Blue Water Foods & Exports P. Ltd. (6) BMR Exports (7) Castlerock Fisheries Pvt. Ltd. (8) Coastal Corporation Ltd. (9) Diamond Seafoods Exports/ Edhayam Frozen Foods Pvt. Ltd./ Kadalkanny Frozen Foods/Theva & Company (10) G A Randerian (P) Limited 4 (11) GKS Business Associates (P) Ltd.5 (12) Kalyan Aqua & Marine Exports India Pvt. Ltd. (13) L. G. Sea Foods 6 (14) Lewis Natural Foods Ltd. (15) Libran Cold Storages Pvt. Ltd. (16) Shimpo Exports (17) SSF Limited (18) Sterling Foods (19) Triveni Fisheries Pvt. Ltd. (20) Unitriveni Overseas As we stated in the Preliminary Results, our former practice concerning respondents submitting timely noshipment 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 3 This company was listed in the Initiation Notice as Accelerated Freeze-Drying Company Ltd. 4 This company was listed in the Initiation Notice as G A Randerian Ltd. 5 This company was listed in the Initiation Notice as G.K S Business Associates Pvt. Ltd. 6 This company was listed in the Initiation Notice as L.G Seafoods. PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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 20 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. Cost of Production As discussed in the Preliminary Results, we conducted an investigation to determine whether Apex and Falcon made third country 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 12029–12030. For these final results, we performed the cost test following the same methodology as in the Preliminary Results. See id. at 12030. As explained in the Preliminary Results, based on the record of this administrative review we found 20 percent or more of Apex’s and Falcon’s sales of a given product during the reporting period were made 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 id.; and sections 773(b)(1)–(2) of the Act. Following the publication of the Preliminary Results, no additional information was placed on the record concerning our determination of sales made below COP. Therefore, for purposes of these final results, we continue to find that, for certain products, Apex and Falcon made below- E:\FR\FM\13JYN1.SGM 13JYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 134 / Wednesday, July 13, 2011 / Notices cost sales not in the ordinary course of trade. Consequently, we are continuing to disregard these sales for each respondent and have used the remaining sales as the basis for determining normal value pursuant to section 773(b)(1) of the Act. Additionally, for those U.S. sales of subject merchandise for which there were no third country sales in the ordinary course of trade, we continued to compare export prices to constructed value in accordance with section 773(a)(4). See generally Preliminary Results, 76 FR at 12031. Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the case briefs by parties to this administrative review, are listed in the Appendix to this notice and addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum (Decision Memo), which is adopted by this notice. Parties can find a complete discussion of all issues raised in this review and the corresponding recommendations in this public memorandum, which is on file in the Central Records Unit, room 7046, of the main Department building. In addition, a complete version of the Decision Memo can be accessed directly on the Web at http://ia.ita.doc.gov/frn/ . The paper copy and electronic version of the Decision Memo are identical in content. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on our analysis of the comments received, we have made no changes in the margin calculations. Final Results of Review We determine that the following weighted-average margin percentages exist for the period February 1, 2009, through January 31, 2010: Manufacturer/Exporter Percent margin Apex Exports ............................ Falcon Marine Exports Limited 2.31 1.36 mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Review-Specific Average Rate Applicable to the Following Companies: 7 7 This rate is based on the average of the margins calculated for those companies selected for individual review, weighted by each company’s publicly-ranged quantity of reported U.S. transactions. Because we cannot apply our normal methodology of calculating a weighted-average margin due to requests to protect businessproprietary information, we find this rate to be the best proxy of the actual weighted-average margin determined for the mandatory respondents.

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 Apex and Falcon reported the entered value for all 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 companies which were not selected for individual examination, we have calculated an assessment rate based on the average of the margins calculated for those companies selected for individual examination, weighted by each company’s publicly-ranged quantity of reported U.S. transactions. In situations where we cannot apply our normal methodology of calculating a weighted-average margin due to requests to protect business-proprietary information but where use of a simple average does not yield the best proxy of PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the weighted-average margin relative to publicly available data, normally we will use the publicly available figures as a matter of practice. See Bearings from France, 75 FR at 53663. 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 May 6, 2003. See Assessment Policy Notice. This clarification applies 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 that the merchandise they sold to an intermediary (e.g., a reseller, trading company, or exporter) was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the allothers rate established in the less-thanfair-value (LTFV) investigation if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. See Assessment Policy Notice for a full discussion of this clarification.

SUMMARY: In response to requests from interested parties, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) is currently conducting the 2009–2010 administrative review of the antidumping duty order on tapered roller bearings and parts thereof, finished and unfinished (‘‘TRBs’’), from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’), covering the period June 1, 2009, through May 31, 2010. We have preliminarily determined that sales have been made below normal value (‘‘NV’’) by certain companies subject to this review. Additionally, we are announcing that we intend to rescind the review with respect to entries of TRBs exported by Tainshui Hailin Import and Export Corporation (‘‘Hailin I&E’’) produced by any manufacturer other than Hailin Bearing Factory (‘‘HB Factory’’). We have preliminarily determined that Gansu Hailin Zhongke Science & Technology Co., Ltd. (‘‘Hailin Zhongke’’) is successor-in-interest to HB Factory. If these preliminary results are adopted in our final results of this review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to assess antidumping duties on entries of subject merchandise during the period of review (‘‘POR’’) for which the importerspecific assessment rates are above de minimis. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results. We will issue the final results no later than 120 days from the date of publication of this notice.

Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From India: Final Results of 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, Partial Rescission, 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 
India. This review covers 201 producers/exporters \1\ of the subject 
merchandise to the United States. The period of review (POR) is 
February 1, 2009, through January 31, 2010.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ This figure does not include Vaibhav Sea Foods (Vaibhav), a 
company for which the Department is rescinding the administrative 
review. This figure also treats collapsed entities as one producer/
exporter. For further discussion concerning the rescission of the 
review with respect to Vaibhav, see the ``Partial Rescission'' 
section of this notice below.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Based on our analysis of the comments received, we have made no 
changes to the margin calculations. Therefore, the final results do not 
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 13, 2011.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Elizabeth Eastwood or Henry Almond, 
AD/CVD Operations, Office 2, Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    This review covers 201 producers/exporters. The respondents which 
the Department selected for individual examination are Apex Exports 
(Apex) and Falcon Marine Exports Limited (Falcon). 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 India. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp 
From India: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review, Partial Rescission of Review, and Preliminary No Shipment 
Determination, 76 FR 12025 (Mar. 4, 2011) (Preliminary Results).
    On March 21, 2011, in response to a request from the Department, 
Triveni Fisheries Pvt. Ltd. (Triveni), a respondent not selected for 
individual examination, clarified its previous submission to indicate 
that it had no shipments, entries or sales of subject merchandise 
during the POR. For further discussion, see the ``Determination of No 
Shipments'' section of this notice.
    In April 2011, the Department verified the cost data reported by 
Apex in India.
    We invited parties to comment on the Preliminary Results of review. 
In May 2011, we received case and rebuttal briefs from the Ad Hoc 
Shrimp Trade Action Committee (the petitioner), the American Shrimp 
Processors Association/the Louisiana Shrimp Association (collectively, 
``the processors''), and Apex and Falcon.
    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\ 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

[[Page 41204]]

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.

Partial Rescission

    In April 2010, after receiving timely requests, the Department 
initiated this administrative review with respect to a number of Indian 
exporters/producers, including Vaibhav. See generally Certain Frozen 
Warmwater Shrimp From Brazil, India, and Thailand: Notice of Initiation 
of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews, 76 FR 18157 (Apr. 1, 2011) 
(Initiation Notice). We also included Vaibhav in the list of 
respondents not selected for individual review in our preliminary 
results. See generally Preliminary Results, 76 FR at 12032. However, in 
the 2005-2006 administrative review, we determined that this company no 
longer existed. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From India: Final 
Results and Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review, 72 FR 52055, 52057 (Sept. 12, 2007). Because there is no 
evidence on the record to contradict this prior determination, we find 
that our initiation with respect to Vaibhav was in error. As a result, 
we have determined to rescind this review with respect to Vaibhav.

Determination of No Shipments

    As noted in the Preliminary Results, we received no-shipment claims 
from 20 companies named in the Initiation Notice, and we confirmed the 
claims from 19 of these companies with U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP). With respect to the remaining company, Triveni, it 
appeared from CBP entry documents that shrimp produced by this company 
entered the United States during the POR; however, as noted in the 
``Background'' section, above, Trivini clarified its no-shipment 
statement after the date of the Preliminary Results to indicate that it 
had no knowledge of any shipments, entries, or sales of subject 
merchandise to the United States during this period. See Triveni's 
letter to the Department dated March 21, 2011. Based on Triveni's most 
recent submission, we find that Triveni had no reportable transactions 
during the POR.
    Therefore, because we find that the record indicates that these 20 
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) Abad Fisheries Pvt. Ltd.
    (2) Accelerated Freeze Drying Company Ltd.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ This company was listed in the Initiation Notice as 
Accelerated Freeze-Drying Company Ltd.

    (3) Baby Marine International
    (4) Baby Marine Sarass
    (5) Blue Water Foods & Exports P. Ltd.
    (6) BMR Exports

Randerian Ltd.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (11) GKS Business Associates (P) Ltd.\5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ This company was listed in the Initiation Notice as G.K S 
Business Associates Pvt. Ltd.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (12) Kalyan Aqua & Marine Exports India Pvt. Ltd.
    (13) L. G. Sea Foods \6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ This company was listed in the Initiation Notice as L.G 
Seafoods.

    (14) Lewis Natural Foods Ltd.
    (15) Libran Cold Storages Pvt. Ltd.
    (16) Shimpo Exports
    (17) SSF Limited
    (18) Sterling Foods
    (19) Triveni Fisheries Pvt. Ltd.
    (20) Unitriveni Overseas
    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 20 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.

Cost of Production

    As discussed in the Preliminary Results, we conducted an 
investigation to determine whether Apex and Falcon made third country 
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 12029-12030. For these final 
results, we performed the cost test following the same methodology as 
in the Preliminary Results. See id. at 12030.
    As explained in the Preliminary Results, based on the record of 
this administrative review we found 20 percent or more of Apex's and 
Falcon's sales of a given product during the reporting period were made 
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 id.; and sections 773(b)(1)-(2) of 
the Act.
    Following the publication of the Preliminary Results, no additional 
information was placed on the record concerning our determination of 
sales made below COP. Therefore, for purposes of these final results, 
we continue to find that, for certain products, Apex and Falcon made 
below-

[[Page 41205]]

cost sales not in the ordinary course of trade. Consequently, we are 
continuing to disregard these sales for each respondent and have used 
the remaining sales as the basis for determining normal value pursuant 
to section 773(b)(1) of the Act. Additionally, for those U.S. sales of 
subject merchandise for which there were no third country sales in the 
ordinary course of trade, we continued to compare export prices to 
constructed value in accordance with section 773(a)(4). See generally 
Preliminary Results, 76 FR at 12031.

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case briefs by parties to this 
administrative review, are listed in the Appendix to this notice and 
addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum (Decision Memo), which 
is adopted by this notice. Parties can find a complete discussion of 
all issues raised in this review and the corresponding recommendations 
in this public memorandum, which is on file in the Central Records 
Unit, room 7046, of the main Department building.
    In addition, a complete version of the Decision Memo can be 
accessed directly on the Web at http://ia.ita.doc.gov/frn/. The paper 
copy and electronic version of the Decision Memo are identical in 
content.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our analysis of the comments received, we have made no 
changes in the margin calculations.

Final Results of Review

    We determine that the following weighted-average margin percentages 
exist for the period February 1, 2009, through January 31, 2010:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                               Percent
                   Manufacturer/Exporter                        margin
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Apex Exports...............................................         2.31
Falcon Marine Exports Limited..............................         1.36
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Review-Specific Average Rate Applicable to the Following Companies: 
\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ This rate is based on the average of the margins calculated 
for those companies selected for individual review, weighted by each 
company's publicly-ranged quantity of reported U.S. transactions. 
Because we cannot apply our normal methodology of calculating a 
weighted-average margin due to requests to protect business-
proprietary information, we find this rate to be the best proxy of 
the actual weighted-average margin determined for the mandatory 
respondents. See Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof From France, et 
al.: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews, Final 
Results of Changed-Circumstances Review, and Revocation of an Order 
in Part, 75 FR 53661, 53663 (Sept. 1, 2010) (Bearings from France).

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 Apex and Falcon reported 
the entered value for all 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 companies which were not selected for individual 
examination, we have calculated an assessment rate based on the average 
of the margins calculated for those companies selected for individual 
examination, weighted by each company's publicly-ranged quantity of 
reported U.S. transactions. In situations where we cannot apply our 
normal methodology of calculating a weighted-average margin due to 
requests to protect business-proprietary information but where use of a 
simple average does not yield the best proxy of the weighted-average 
margin relative to publicly available data, normally we will use the 
publicly available figures as a matter of practice. See Bearings from 
France, 75 FR at 53663.
    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 
May 6, 2003. See Assessment Policy Notice. This clarification applies 
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 that the merchandise they sold to an 
intermediary (e.g., a reseller, trading company, or exporter) 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 less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation if there is no rate for 
the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. See 
Assessment Policy Notice for a full discussion of this clarification.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of subject merchandise \8\ 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

[[Page 41207]]

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 LTFV 
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 10.17 percent, the all-
others rate established in the LTFV investigation. See Notice of 
Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and 
Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India, 70 
FR 5147, 5148 (Feb. 1, 2005). These deposit requirements shall remain 
in effect until further notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ 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 (April 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.
