AGENCY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Thailand with respect to 150 1 companies. The respondents which the Department selected for individual examination are Marine Gold Products Limited (Marine Gold), and Thai Union Frozen Products Public Co., Ltd. and Thai Union Seafood Co., Ltd. SUMMARY: 1 This figure does not include those companies for which the Department is rescinding the administrative review. PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (collectively, Thai Union).2 The period of review (POR) is February 1, 2011, through January 31, 2012. We have preliminarily determined that sales to the United States have been made at prices below normal value. We have also preliminarily determined to revoke the antidumping duty order with respect to shrimp from Thailand produced and exported by Marine Gold. Finally, the Department also preliminarily determines that 11 additional exporters made no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. If these preliminary results are adopted in the final results of this review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. DATES: Effective Date: March 12, 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to the order is certain frozen warmwater shrimp.3 The product is currently classified under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings: 0306.17.00.03, 0306.17.00.06, 0306.17.00.09, 0306.17.00.12, 0306.17.00.15, 0306.17.00.18, 0306.17.00.21, 0306.17.00.24, 0306.17.00.27, 0306.17.00.40, 1605.21.10.30, and 1605.29.10.10. Although the HTSUS numbers are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written 2 In the 2006–2007 administrative review, the Department found that the following companies comprised a single entity: Thai Union Frozen Products Public Co., Ltd. and Thai Union Seafood Co., Ltd.

Absent information to the contrary, we intend to continue to treat these companies as a single entity for purposes of this administrative review. 3 See the ‘‘Decision Memorandum for Preliminary Results of Review for the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Thailand,’’ (Preliminary Decision Memorandum) from Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, to Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, dated concurrently with these results, for a complete description of the Scope of the Order. E:\FR\FM\12MRN1.SGM 12MRN1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 48 / Tuesday, March 12, 2013 / Notices product description, available in Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From Brazil, India, the People’s Republic of China, Thailand, and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Continuation of Antidumping Duty Orders, 76 FR 23972 (April 29, 2011), remains dispositive. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 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/ constructed export price is calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Normal value is calculated in accordance with section 773 of the Act. In accordance with section 773(b) of the Act, we disregarded the below-cost sales of Marine Gold and Thai Union in the most recent administrative reviews completed for these companies before the initiation of this review. Therefore, we have reasonable grounds to believe or suspect that Marine Gold’s and Thai Union’s sales of the foreign like product under consideration for the determination of normal value in this review may have been made at prices below the cost of production (COP) as provided by section 773(b)(2)(A)(ii) of the Act. Accordingly, pursuant to section 773(b)(1) of the Act, we have conducted a COP analysis of Marine Gold’s and Thai Union’s sales in Thailand in this review. Based on this test, we disregarded certain sales made by Marine Gold and Thai Union in the home market which were made at below-cost prices. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, which is 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). Access to IA ACCESS is available in the Central Records Unit (CRU), room 7046 of the main Department of Commerce building. In addition, a complete version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly on the Internet at http://www.trade.gov/ia/. The signed Preliminary Decision Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical in content. VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:21 Mar 11, 2013 Jkt 229001 Preliminary Determination of No Shipments Among the companies under review, 13 companies 4 reported that they made no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR.5 Based on the certifications of the following companies and our analysis of CBP information, we preliminarily determine that the following companies did not have any reviewable transactions during the POR: (1) Anglo-Siam. (2) Daedong. (3) Leo Transport. (4) Grobest. (5) Lucky Union. (6) Namprick. (7) S&P. (8) S.K. Foods. (9) Siamchai. (10) Thai Union Manufacturing. (11) V. Thai. In addition, the Department finds that it is not appropriate to preliminarily rescind the review with respect to these companies but, rather, to complete the review with respect to these companies and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of this review.6 Finally, the Department received no shipment certifications from two additional companies, C Y Frozen Food Co., Ltd. (C Y Frozen Food) and Kosamut Frozen Foods Co., Ltd. (Kosamut). We preliminarily 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 because: (1) C Y Frozen Foods failed to certify its statement of no shipments in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303(g)(1), despite the Department’s request that it do so; and (2) Kosamut’s no shipment statement related only to its own exports and not those of another affiliated exporter which has to date been treated as the same entity as 4 These companies are Anglo-Siam Seafoods Ltd. (Anglo-Siam), Daedong (Thailand) Co. Ltd. (Daedong), Leo Transport Corporation Ltd. (Leo Transport), Grobest Frozen Foods Co. (Grobest), Ltd., Lucky Union Foods Co., Ltd. (Lucky Union), Namprick Maesri Ltd. Part. (Namprick), S&P Syndicate Public Company Ltd. (S&P), S.K. Foods (Thailand) Public Co. Limited (S.K. Foods), Siamchai International Food Co., Ltd. (Siamchai), Thai Union Manufacturing Company Limited (Thai Union Manufacturing), and V. Thai Food Product Co., Ltd. (V. Thai). 5 For a full explanation of the Department’s analysis, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. 6 See Wooden Bedroom Furniture From the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2011, 78 FR 8493 (February 6, 2013). PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 15687 Kosamut for cash deposit purposes.7 Therefore, we are continuing to include both C Y Frozen Foods and Kosamut in this administrative review for purposes of the preliminary results. Preliminary Intent To Revoke On February 1, 2012, Marine Gold requested revocation of the order on shrimp from Thailand as it pertains to its sales. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.222(b)(2),8 the Department may revoke an antidumping duty order in part if it concludes that (A) an exporter or producer has sold the merchandise at not less than normal value for a period of at least three consecutive years, (B) the exporter or producer has agreed in writing to its immediate reinstatement in the order if the Secretary concludes that the exporter or producer, subsequent to the revocation, sold the subject merchandise at less than normal value, and (C) the continued application of the antidumping duty order is no longer necessary to offset dumping. With regard to the criteria of 19 CFR 351.222(b)(2), based on our examination of the sales data submitted by Marine Gold, we preliminarily determine that it sold the subject merchandise in the United States in commercial quantities in each of the consecutive years cited by Marine Gold to support its request for revocation.9 Moreover, we preliminarily find that Marine Gold did not engage in dumping during the same three years under consideration.10 Therefore, we preliminarily determine that Marine Gold’s exports of subject merchandise qualify for revocation from the order pursuant to 19 CFR 351.222(b)(2). 7 After reviewing the data submitted by Kosamut regarding its relationship with its affiliated exporter, we have determined that we need additional information from Kosamut before evaluating its no shipments claim. We intend to request this information and consider it in our final results. 8 The Department recently modified the section of its regulations concerning the revocation of antidumping and countervailing duty orders in whole or in part, but that modification does not apply to this administrative review. See Modification to Regulation Concerning the Revocation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Orders, 77 FR 29875 (May 21, 2012). Reference to 19 CFR 351.222(b) refers to the Department’s regulations prior to the modification. 9 See the Memorandum to the File, from Blaine Wiltse, Senior Analyst, Office 2, AD/CVD Operations, entitled, ‘‘Analysis of Commercial Quantities for Marine Gold Products Limited’s Request for Revocation,’’ dated March 4, 2013. 10 See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From Thailand: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Final No Shipment Determination, 76 FR 40881, 40883 (July 12, 2011); see also the ‘‘Preliminary Determination To Revoke Order, In Part’’ section in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. E:\FR\FM\12MRN1.SGM 12MRN1 15688 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 48 / Tuesday, March 12, 2013 / Notices Preliminary Rescission, in Part On February 29, 2012, the petitioner requested that the Department review entries of Tanaya International Co., Ltd. and Tanaya Intl. (collectively, Tanaya). On April 27, 2012, we received a letter from Tanaya stating that it does not produce or export shrimp, nor has it ever produced or exported the subject merchandise. On February 14, 2013, Tanaya properly certified this submission, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303(g)(1), at the Department’s request. According to 19 CFR 351.213(b), the Department conducts administrative reviews on exporters or producers covered by an order. In this particular situation, Tanaya is neither an exporter nor manufacturer of the subject merchandise. Furthermore, Tanaya has made no entries, exports, or sales of the subject merchandise during the POR. Therefore, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), the Department is preliminarily rescinding the review with respect to Tanaya.

Assessment Rates Upon completion of the administrative review, the Department shall determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). For Marine Gold and Thai Union, we will calculate 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.18 For the companies which were not selected for individual review, we will calculate an assessment rate based on the weighted-average of the cash deposit rates calculated for the companies selected for mandatory review (i.e., Marine Gold and Thai Union). 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. Where either the respondent’s weightedaverage dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. The final results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by the final results of this review and for future deposits of estimated duties, where applicable.19 The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003. This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Marine Gold and Thai Union for which these companies did not know that the merchandise was destined for the United States.

Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From Thailand: Preliminary 
Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Intent To Revoke 
the Order (in Part); 2011-2012

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

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen 
warmwater shrimp from Thailand with respect to 150 \1\ companies. The 
respondents which the Department selected for individual examination 
are Marine Gold Products Limited (Marine Gold), and Thai Union Frozen 
Products Public Co., Ltd. and Thai Union Seafood Co., Ltd. 
(collectively, Thai Union).\2\ The period of review (POR) is February 
1, 2011, through January 31, 2012.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ This figure does not include those companies for which the 
Department is rescinding the administrative review.
    \2\ In the 2006-2007 administrative review, the Department found 
that the following companies comprised a single entity: Thai Union 
Frozen Products Public Co., Ltd. and Thai Union Seafood Co., Ltd. 
See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From Thailand: Preliminary 
Results and Preliminary Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review, 73 FR 12088 (March 6, 2008), unchanged in 
Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From Thailand: Final Results and 
Final Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 
73 FR 50933 (August 29, 2008). Absent information to the contrary, 
we intend to continue to treat these companies as a single entity 
for purposes of this administrative review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We have preliminarily determined that sales to the United States 
have been made at prices below normal value. We have also preliminarily 
determined to revoke the antidumping duty order with respect to shrimp 
from Thailand produced and exported by Marine Gold. Finally, the 
Department also preliminarily determines that 11 additional exporters 
made no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. If these 
preliminary results are adopted in the final results of this review, we 
will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.

DATES: Effective Date: March 12, 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to the order is certain frozen warmwater 
shrimp.\3\ The product is currently classified under the Harmonized 
Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings:

    \3\ See the ``Decision Memorandum for Preliminary Results of 
Review for the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Certain 
Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Thailand,'' (Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum) from Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, to Paul Piquado, 
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, dated concurrently 
with these results, for a complete description of the Scope of the 
Order.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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/constructed export price is calculated in accordance with section 
772 of the Act. Normal value is calculated in accordance with section 
773 of the Act.
    In accordance with section 773(b) of the Act, we disregarded the 
below-cost sales of Marine Gold and Thai Union in the most recent 
administrative reviews completed for these companies before the 
initiation of this review. Therefore, we have reasonable grounds to 
believe or suspect that Marine Gold's and Thai Union's sales of the 
foreign like product under consideration for the determination of 
normal value in this review may have been made at prices below the cost 
of production (COP) as provided by section 773(b)(2)(A)(ii) of the Act. 
Accordingly, pursuant to section 773(b)(1) of the Act, we have 
conducted a COP analysis of Marine Gold's and Thai Union's sales in 
Thailand in this review. Based on this test, we disregarded certain 
sales made by Marine Gold and Thai Union in the home market which were 
made at below-cost prices.
    For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, which is 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). Access to IA ACCESS is available in the Central 
Records Unit (CRU), room 7046 of the main Department of Commerce 
building. In addition, a complete version of the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum can be accessed directly on the Internet at http://www.trade.gov/ia/. The signed Preliminary Decision Memorandum and the 
electronic versions of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are 
identical in content.

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    Among the companies under review, 13 companies \4\ reported that 
they made no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States 
during the POR.\5\ Based on the certifications of the following 
companies and our analysis of CBP information, we preliminarily 
determine that the following companies did not have any reviewable 
transactions during the POR:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ These companies are Anglo-Siam Seafoods Ltd. (Anglo-Siam), 
Daedong (Thailand) Co. Ltd. (Daedong), Leo Transport Corporation 
Ltd. (Leo Transport), Grobest Frozen Foods Co. (Grobest), Ltd., 
Lucky Union Foods Co., Ltd. (Lucky Union), Namprick Maesri Ltd. 
Part. (Namprick), S&P Syndicate Public Company Ltd. (S&P), S.K. 
Foods (Thailand) Public Co. Limited (S.K. Foods), Siamchai 
International Food Co., Ltd. (Siamchai), Thai Union Manufacturing 
Company Limited (Thai Union Manufacturing), and V. Thai Food Product 
Co., Ltd. (V. Thai).
    \5\ For a full explanation of the Department's analysis, see the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (1) Anglo-Siam.
    (2) Daedong.
    (3) Leo Transport.
    (4) Grobest.
    (5) Lucky Union.
    (6) Namprick.
    (7) S&P.
    (8) S.K. Foods.
    (9) Siamchai.
    (10) Thai Union Manufacturing.
    (11) V. Thai.

In addition, the Department finds that it is not appropriate to 
preliminarily rescind the review with respect to these companies but, 
rather, to complete the review with respect to these companies and 
issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of 
this review.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Wooden Bedroom Furniture From the People's Republic of 
China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review; 2011, 78 FR 8493 (February 6, 2013).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Finally, the Department received no shipment certifications from 
two additional companies, C Y Frozen Food Co., Ltd. (C Y Frozen Food) 
and Kosamut Frozen Foods Co., Ltd. (Kosamut). We preliminarily 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 because: (1) C Y Frozen Foods 
failed to certify its statement of no shipments in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.303(g)(1), despite the Department's request that it do so; and 
(2) Kosamut's no shipment statement related only to its own exports and 
not those of another affiliated exporter which has to date been treated 
as the same entity as Kosamut for cash deposit purposes.\7\ Therefore, 
we are continuing to include both C Y Frozen Foods and Kosamut in this 
administrative review for purposes of the preliminary results.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ After reviewing the data submitted by Kosamut regarding its 
relationship with its affiliated exporter, we have determined that 
we need additional information from Kosamut before evaluating its no 
shipments claim. We intend to request this information and consider 
it in our final results.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preliminary Intent To Revoke

    On February 1, 2012, Marine Gold requested revocation of the order 
on shrimp from Thailand as it pertains to its sales. Pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.222(b)(2),\8\ the Department may revoke an antidumping duty order 
in part if it concludes that (A) an exporter or producer has sold the 
merchandise at not less than normal value for a period of at least 
three consecutive years, (B) the exporter or producer has agreed in 
writing to its immediate reinstatement in the order if the Secretary 
concludes that the exporter or producer, subsequent to the revocation, 
sold the subject merchandise at less than normal value, and (C) the 
continued application of the antidumping duty order is no longer 
necessary to offset dumping.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ The Department recently modified the section of its 
regulations concerning the revocation of antidumping and 
countervailing duty orders in whole or in part, but that 
modification does not apply to this administrative review. See 
Modification to Regulation Concerning the Revocation of Antidumping 
and Countervailing Duty Orders, 77 FR 29875 (May 21, 2012). 
Reference to 19 CFR 351.222(b) refers to the Department's 
regulations prior to the modification.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    With regard to the criteria of 19 CFR 351.222(b)(2), based on our 
examination of the sales data submitted by Marine Gold, we 
preliminarily determine that it sold the subject merchandise in the 
United States in commercial quantities in each of the consecutive years 
cited by Marine Gold to support its request for revocation.\9\ 
Moreover, we preliminarily find that Marine Gold did not engage in 
dumping during the same three years under consideration.\10\ Therefore, 
we preliminarily determine that Marine Gold's exports of subject 
merchandise qualify for revocation from the order pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.222(b)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See the Memorandum to the File, from Blaine Wiltse, Senior 
Analyst, Office 2, AD/CVD Operations, entitled, ``Analysis of 
Commercial Quantities for Marine Gold Products Limited's Request for 
Revocation,'' dated March 4, 2013.
    \10\ See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From Thailand: Final 
Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Final No 
Shipment Determination, 76 FR 40881, 40883 (July 12, 2011); see also 
the ``Preliminary Determination To Revoke Order, In Part'' section 
in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

Preliminary Rescission, in Part

    On February 29, 2012, the petitioner requested that the Department 
review entries of Tanaya International Co., Ltd. and Tanaya Intl. 
(collectively, Tanaya). On April 27, 2012, we received a letter from 
Tanaya stating that it does not produce or export shrimp, nor has it 
ever produced or exported the subject merchandise. On February 14, 
2013, Tanaya properly certified this submission, in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.303(g)(1), at the Department's request.
    According to 19 CFR 351.213(b), the Department conducts 
administrative reviews on exporters or producers covered by an order. 
In this particular situation, Tanaya is neither an exporter nor 
manufacturer of the subject merchandise. Furthermore, Tanaya has made 
no entries, exports, or sales of the subject merchandise during the 
POR. Therefore, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), the Department is 
preliminarily rescinding the review with respect to Tanaya.

Preliminary Results of Review

    As a result of this review, we preliminarily determine that the 
weighted-average dumping margins for Marine Gold and Thai Union for the 
period February 1, 2011, through January 31, 2012, are as follows:

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

Disclosure and Public Comment

    The Department intends to disclose to interested parties the 
calculations performed in connection with these preliminary results 
within five days of the date of publication of this notice.\13\ 
Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.309(c), interested parties may submit cases 
briefs not later than the later of 30 days after the date of 
publication of this notice or one week after the issuance of the last 
verification report for Marine Gold. Rebuttal briefs, limited to issues 
raised in the case briefs, may be filed not later than five days after 
the date for filing case briefs.\14\ Parties who submit case briefs or 
rebuttal briefs in this proceeding are encouraged to submit with each 
argument: (1) A statement of the issue; (2) a brief summary of the 
argument; and (3) a table of authorities.\15\ Case and rebuttal briefs 
should be filed using IA ACCESS.\16\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ In the 2007-2008 administrative review, the Department 
found that the following companies comprised a single entity: 
Pakfood Public Company Limited, Asia Pacific (Thailand) Co., Ltd., 
Chaophraya Cold Storage Co. Ltd., Okeanos Co. Ltd., Okeanos Food Co. 
Ltd., and Takzin Samut Co. Ltd. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp 
from Thailand: Final Results and Partial Rescission of Antidumping 
Duty Administrative Review, 74 FR 47551 (September 16, 2009), and 
accompanying Issues and Decision memorandum at Comment 6. Absent 
information to the contrary, we intend to continue to treat these 
companies as a single entity for purposes of this administrative 
review.
    \13\ See 19 CFR 351.224(b).
    \14\ See 19 CFR 351.309(d).
    \15\ See 19 CFR 351.309(c)(2) and (d)(2).
    \16\ See 19 CFR 351.303.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.310(c), interested parties who wish to 
request a hearing, or to participate if one is requested, must submit a 
written request to the Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, 
filed electronically via IA ACCESS. An electronically-filed document 
must be received successfully in its entirety by the Department's 
electronic records system, IA ACCESS, by 5 p.m. Eastern Standard Time 
within 30 days after the date of publication of this notice.\17\ 
Requests should contain: (1) The party's name, address, and telephone 
number; (2) the number of participants; and (3) a list of issues to be 
discussed. Issues raised in the hearing will be limited to those raised 
in the respective case briefs. The Department will issue the final 
results of this administrative review, including the results of its 
analysis of the issues raised in any written briefs, not later than 120 
days after the date of publication of this notice, pursuant to section 
751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \17\ See 19 CFR 351.310(c).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the administrative review, the Department shall 
determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
    For Marine Gold and Thai Union, we will calculate 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.\18\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \18\ See 19 CF 351.212(b)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For the companies which were not selected for individual review, we 
will calculate an assessment rate based on the weighted-average of the 
cash deposit rates calculated for the companies selected for mandatory 
review (i.e., Marine Gold and Thai Union).
    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. Where either the respondent's weighted-average dumping 
margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-specific assessment rate 
is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the 
appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. The final 
results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of 
antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by the final 
results of this review and for future deposits of estimated duties, 
where applicable.\19\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \19\ See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003. This clarification will apply to entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by Marine Gold and Thai Union for 
which these companies did not know that the merchandise was destined 
for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate unreviewed

[[Page 15691]]

entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate 
company(ies) involved in the transaction. For a full discussion of this 
clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
    We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of 
the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the 
final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for each specific 
company listed above will be that established in the final results of 
this review, except if the rate is less than 0.50 percent and, 
therefore, de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), in 
which case the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for previously 
reviewed or investigated companies not participating in this review, 
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 original 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.\20\ These 
deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \20\ Effective January 16, 2009, there is no longer a cash 
deposit requirement for certain producers/exporters in accordance 
with the 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 (January 30, 2009) 
(Section 129 Determination).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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.
    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: March 4, 2013.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
