SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) is conducting four new shipper reviews (‘‘NSRs’’) of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen fish fillets from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (‘‘Vietnam’’). The period of review (‘‘POR’’) is August 1, 2011, through January 31, 2012. The reviews cover four exporters of subject merchandise: Quang Minh Seafood Co., Ltd. (‘‘Quang Minh’’); Dai Thanh Seafoods Company Limited (‘‘Dathaco’’); Fatifish Company Limited (‘‘Fatifish’’); and Hoang Long Seafood AGENCY: Processing Co., Ltd. (‘‘Hoang Long’’) (collectively, the ‘‘New Shipper Respondents’’). The Department has preliminarily determined that the New Shipper Respondents did not sell subject merchandise at less than normal value (‘‘NV’’). DATES: Effective Date: January 30, 2013. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jerry Huang, Toni Dach, and Seth Isenberg, AD/CVD Operations, Office 9, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–4047, (202) 482– 1655 and (202) 482–0588. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Scope of the Order The product covered by the order is frozen fish fillets, including regular, shank, and strip fillets and portions thereof, whether or not breaded or marinated, of the species Pangasius Bocourti, Pangasius Hypophthalmus (also known as Pangasius), and Pangasius Micronemus. These products are classifiable under tariff article codes 1604.19.4000, 1604.19.5000, 0305.59.4000, 0304.29.6033 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’). Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, our written description of the scope of the order is dispositive.1 Methodology The Department has conducted these reviews in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’) and 19 CFR 351.214. Export prices have been calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Because Vietnam 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 New Shipper Respondents’ factors of production have been valued primarily in Bangladesh, which is economically comparable to Vietnam and is a significant producer of comparable merchandise, consistent with section 773(c)(2) of the Act. When data were not available from Bangladesh, we used Indian, Indonesian and Philippine sources. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, please see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. 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’’).

Methodology

    The Department has conducted these reviews in accordance with 
section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act'') and 19 CFR 351.214. Export prices have been calculated in

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 New Shipper Respondents' factors of production have 
been valued primarily in Bangladesh, which is economically comparable 
to Vietnam and is a significant producer of comparable merchandise, 
consistent with section 773(c)(2) of the Act. When data were not

Deadline for Submission of Publicly Available Surrogate Value 
Information

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.301(c)(3)(ii), the deadline for 
submission of publicly available information to value factors of 
production under 19 CFR 351.408(c) is 20 days after the date of 
publication of the preliminary results. In accordance with 19 CFR 
351.301(c)(1), if an interested party submits factual information less

deadline) the applicable deadline for submission of such factual 
information, an interested party may submit factual information to 
rebut, clarify, or correct the factual information no later than ten 
days after such factual information is served on the interested party. 
However, the Department generally will not accept in the rebuttal 
submission additional or alternative surrogate value information not 
previously on the record, if the deadline for submission of surrogate 
value information has passed.\6\ Furthermore, the Department generally 
will not accept business proprietary information in either the 
surrogate value submissions or the rebuttals thereto, as the regulation 
regarding the submission of surrogate values allows only for the 
submission of publicly available information.\7\

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the final results, pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.212(b), the Department will determine, and U.S. Customs Border and 
Protection (``CBP'') shall assess, antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries on a per-unit basis for the New Shipper 
Respondents. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to 
CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of 
review. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we will calculate importer-
specific (or customer) per-unit duty assessment rates. We will instruct 
CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by 
this review if any importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the 
final results of this review is above de minimis. The final results of 
these reviews shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping 
duties on entries of merchandise covered by the final results of these 
reviews and for future deposits of estimated duties, where applicable.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of these new shipper reviews for all 
shipments of subject merchandise from the New Shipper Respondents 
entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the 
publication date, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: 
(1) For subject merchandise produced and exported by the New Shipper 
Respondents, the cash deposit rate will be the rates established in the 
final results of these reviews (except, if a rate is zero or de 
minimis, no cash deposit will be required); (2) for subject merchandise 
exported by the New Shipper Respondents but not manufactured by the New 
Shipper Respondents, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the 
Vietnam-wide rate (i.e., $2.11 per kilogram); \8\ and (3) for subject 
merchandise manufactured by the New Shipper Respondents, but exported 
by any other party, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable 
to the exporter. These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice 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 POR. 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.
    We are issuing and publishing this determination in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(2)(B) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
