Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements, when imposed, will apply to all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication of the final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rates for Xiping Opeck, Hi-King Agriculture, China Kingdom, and Nanjing Gemsen International Co., Ltd. will be the rates established in the final results of this administrative review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, i.e., less than 0.5 percent, no cash deposit will be required for that company) ; (2) for Shanghai Ocean and Xuzhou Jinjiang 7 See 8 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).

Memorandum for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review: Freshwater Crawfish Tail Meat from the People's Republic of 
China'' (dated concurrently with this notice) (Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum), and hereby adopted by this notice. The Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically 
via Import Administration's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Centralized Electronic Service System (IA ACCESS). IA ACCESS is 
available to registered users at http://iaaccess.trade.gov and in the

electronic versions of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are 
identical in content.

Treatment of Affiliated Parties as a Single Entity

    We preliminarily determine that Hi-King Agriculture and its 
affiliates, Yancheng Seastar Seafood Co., Ltd., Wuhan Hi-King 
Agriculture Development Co., Ltd., Yancheng Hi-King Frozen Food Co., 
Ltd., Jiangxi Hi-King Poyang Lake Seafood Co., Ltd., and Yancheng Hi-
King Aquatic Growing Co., Ltd., should be treated as a single entity

memorandum entitled ``Freshwater Crawfish Tail Meat from the People's 
Republic of China--Collapsing of Yancheng Hi-King Agriculture 
Developing Co., Ltd., and its Affiliates'' dated concurrently with this 
notice.

Methodology

    The Department has conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Export Price 
is calculated in accordance with section 772(c) of the Act. Because the 
PRC is a nonmarket economy within the meaning of section 771(18) of the 
Act, normal value has been calculated in accordance with section 773(c) 
of the Act. Specifically the respondents' factors of production have 
been valued in Indonesian prices (when available), which is 
economically comparable to the PRC and a significant producer of 
comparable merchandise. For a full description of these ``surrogate'' 
values and the methodology underlying our conclusions, please see

Republic of China: Surrogate-Value Memorandum'' dated concurrently with

duties on all appropriate entries. The Department intends to issue 
assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of 
the final results of review. For any individually examined respondent 
whose weighted average

[[Page 61385]]

dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent) in the final 
results of this review, the Department will calculate importer-specific 
assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of 
dumping calculated for the importer's examined sales and the total 
entered value of sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). In 
these preliminary results, the Department applied the assessment rate 
calculation method adopted in Final Modification for Reviews, i.e., on 
the basis of monthly average-to-average comparisons using only the 
transactions associated with that importer with offsets being provided 
for non-dumped comparisons.
    Where the Department calculates a weighted-average dumping margin 
by dividing the total amount of dumping for reviewed sales to that 
party by the total sales quantity associated with those transactions, 
the Department will direct CBP to assess importer-specific assessment 
amounts based on the resulting per-unit amounts. Where an importer- (or 
customer-) specific ad valorem or per-unit amount is greater than de 
minimis, the Department will instruct CBP to collect the appropriate 
duties at the time of liquidation.\7\ Where an importer- (or customer-) 
specific ad valorem or per-unit amount is zero or de minimis, the 
Department will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without 
regard to antidumping duties.\8\ For the companies for which this 
review has been preliminarily rescinded, the Department intends to 
assess antidumping duties at rates equal to the cash deposit of 
estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or 
withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(c)(2), if the review is rescinded for these companies.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements, when imposed, will apply 
to all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication of the final 
results of this administrative review, as provided by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rates for Xiping Opeck, 
Hi-King Agriculture, China Kingdom, and Nanjing Gemsen International 
Co., Ltd. will be the rates established in the final results of this 
administrative review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, i.e., 
less than 0.5 percent, no cash deposit will be required for that 
company) ; (2) for Shanghai Ocean and Xuzhou Jinjiang which claimed no 
shipments and have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will remain 
unchanged from the rate assigned to these companies in the most 
recently completed review of the companies; (3) for previously 
investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters who are not under 
review in this segment of the proceeding but who have separate rates, 
the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate 
published for the most recent period; (4) for all other PRC exporters 
of subject merchandise which have not been found to be entitled to a 
separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be PRC-wide rate of 223.01 
percent; (5) for all non-PRC exporters of subject merchandise the cash 
deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC entity that 
supplied that exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a preliminary 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.
    This review and notice are in accordance with sections 751(a)(1), 
751(a)(2)(B)(iv), 751(a)(3), and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: October 1, 2012.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
