SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) has received requests to conduct administrative reviews of various antidumping and countervailing duty orders and findings with February anniversary dates. In accordance with the Department’s regulations, we are initiating those administrative reviews. DATES: Effective Date: March 29, 2013. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Brenda E. Waters, Office of AD/CVD Operations, Customs Unit, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230, telephone: (202) 482–4735. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background The Department has received timely requests, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), for administrative reviews of various antidumping and countervailing duty orders and findings with February anniversary dates. With respect to the antidumping duty orders on Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India and Thailand, the initiation of the antidumping duty adminstrative review for these cases will be published in a separate initiation notice. All deadlines for the submission of various types of information, certifications, or comments or actions by the Department discussed below refer to the number of calendar days from the applicable starting time. Notice of No Sales If a producer or exporter named in this notice of initiation had no exports, sales, or entries during the period of review (‘‘POR’’), it must notify the Department within 60 days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. All submissions must be filed electronically at http:// iaaccess.trade.gov in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303. See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Electronic Filing Procedures; Administrative Protective Order Procedures, 76 FR 39263 (July 6, 2011). Such submissions are subject to verification in accordance with section PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 19197 782(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘Act’’). Further, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303(f)(3)(ii), a copy of each request must be served on the petitioner and each exporter or producer specified in the request. Respondent Selection In the event the Department limits the number of respondents for individual examination for administrative reviews, the Department intends to select respondents based on U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) data for U.S. imports during the POR. We intend to release the CBP data under Administrative Protective Order (‘‘APO’’) to all parties having an APO within seven days of publication of this initiation notice and to make our decision regarding respondent selection within 21 days of publication of this Federal Register notice. The Department invites comments regarding the CBP data and respondent selection within five days of placement of the CBP data on the record of the applicable review. In the event the Department decides it is necessary to limit individual examination of respondents and conduct respondent selection under section 777A(c)(2) of the Act: In general, the Department has found that determinations concerning whether particular companies should be ‘‘collapsed’’ (i.e., treated as a single entity for purposes of calculating antidumping duty rates) require a substantial amount of detailed information and analysis, which often require follow-up questions and analysis. Accordingly, the Department will not conduct collapsing analyses at the respondent selection phase of this review and will not collapse companies at the respondent selection phase unless there has been a determination to collapse certain companies in a previous segment of this antidumping proceeding (i.e., investigation, administrative review, new shipper review or changed circumstances review). For any company subject to this review, if the Department determined, or continued to treat, that company as collapsed with others, the Department will assume that such companies continue to operate in the same manner and will collapse them for respondent selection purposes. Otherwise, the Department will not-collapse companies for purposes of respondent selection. Parties are requested to (a) identify which companies subject to review previously were collapsed, and (b) provide a citation to the proceeding in which they were collapsed.

Privileges

A. Denial of Export Privileges of RH International, LLC

    On October 18, 2012, in the U.S. District Court, Middle District of 
Florida Tampa Division, RH International, LLC (``RH International'') 
was convicted of violating the International Emergency Economic Powers 
Act (50 U.S.C. 1701, et seq. (2006 & Supp. IV 2010)) (``IEEPA''). 
Specifically, RH International was convicted of knowingly and willfully 
conspiring with other individuals to violate IEEPA and the Iranian 
Transactions Regulations (31 CFR 560.203, 560.204) by exporting 
computer and related equipment from the United States through the 
U.A.E. to Iran without first having obtained the required license from 
the Office of Foreign Assets Control. RH was sentenced to 12 months of 
unsupervised probation and a fine of $400.00.
    Section 766.25 of the Export Administration Regulations (``EAR'' or 
``Regulations'') \1\ provides, in pertinent

[[Page 19196]]

part, that ``[t]he Director of the Office of Exporter Services, in 
consultation with the Director of the Office of Export Enforcement, may 
deny the export privileges of any person who has been convicted of a 
violation of the EAA, the EAR, of any order, license or authorization 
issued thereunder; any regulation, license, or order issued under the 
International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701-1706); 18 
U.S.C. 793, 794 or 798; section 4(b) of the Internal Security Act of 
1950 (50 U.S.C. 783(b)), or section 38 of the Arms Export Control Act 
(22 U.S.C. 2778).'' 15 CFR 766.25(a); see also Section 11(h) of the 
EAA, 50 U.S.C. app. Sec.  2410(h). The denial of export privileges 
under this provision may be for a period of up to 10 years from the 
date of the conviction. 15 CFR 766.25(d); see also 50 U.S.C. app. Sec.  
2410(h). In addition, Section 750.8 of the Regulations states that the 
Bureau of Industry and Security's Office of Exporter Services may 
revoke any Bureau of Industry and Security (``BIS'') licenses 
previously issued in which the person had an interest in at the time of 
his conviction.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The Regulations are currently codified in the Code of 
Federal Regulations at 15 CFR parts 730-774 (2012). The Regulations 
issued pursuant to the EAA (50 U.S.C. app. Sec. Sec.  2401-2420 
(2000)). Since August 21, 2001, the Export Administration Act 
(``EAA'') has been in lapse and the President, through Executive 
Order 13222 of August 17, 2001 (3 CFR 2001 Comp. 783 (2002)), which 
has been extended by successive Presidential Notices, the most 
recent being that of August 15, 2012 (77 FR 49699, August 16, 2012), 
has continued the Regulations in effect under the IEEPA.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I have received notice of RH International's conviction for 
violating the IEEPA, and have provided notice and an opportunity for RH 
International to make a written submission to BIS, as provided in 
Section 766.25 of the Regulations. I have not received a submission 
from RH International. Based upon my review and consultations with 
BIS's Office of Export Enforcement, including its Director, and the 
facts available to BIS, I have decided to deny RH International's 
export privileges under the Regulations for a period of 10 years from 
the date of RH International's conviction. I have also decided to 
revoke all licenses issued pursuant to the Act or Regulations in which 
RH International had an interest at the time of its conviction.

B. Denial of Export Privileges of Related Person

    Pursuant to Sections 766.25(h) and 766.23 of the Regulations, the 
Director of BIS's Office of Exporter Services, in consultation with the 
Director of BIS's Office of Export Enforcement, may take action to name 
persons related to a Respondent by ownership, control, position of 
responsibility, affiliation, or other connection in the conduct of 
trade or business in order to prevent evasion of a denial order. 
Mohammad Reza (a/k/a ``Ray'') Hajian (``Hajian'') is the owner and 
operator of RH International. Hajian pled guilty under 18 U.S.C. 371 to 
one count of conspiracy to violate IEEPA for his role in falsifying 
export control documents in relation to diverting U.S. origin items to 
Iran via the U.A.E. Hajian was sentenced to 48 months in prison, a $10 
million dollar judgment, a special assessment of $100, and one year of 
supervised probation. Hajian is also the owner and operator of P&P 
Computers and Nexiant, LLC, which were also convicted of the same crime 
as RH International in related matters. Therefore, Hajian is related to 
RH International by ownership, control, position of responsibility, 
affiliation, or other connection in the conduct of trade or business. 
BIS believes that naming Hajian as a related person to RH International 
is necessary to avoid evasion of the denial order against RH 
International.
    As provided in Section 766.23 of the Regulations, I gave notice to 
Hajian that his export privileges under the Regulations could be denied 
for up to 10 years due to his relationship with RH International and 
that BIS believes naming him as a person related to RH International 
would be necessary to prevent evasion of a denial order imposed against 
RH International. In providing such notice, I gave Hajian an 
opportunity to oppose his addition to the RH International Denial Order 
as a related party. Having received no submission from Hajian, I have 
decided, following consultations with BIS's Office of Export 
Enforcement, including its Director, to name Hajian as a Related Person 
to the RH International Denial Order, thereby denying his export 
privileges for 10 years from the date of RH International's conviction.
    I have also decided to revoke all licenses issued pursuant to the 
Act or Regulations in which the Related Person had an interest at the 
time of RH International's conviction. The 10 year denial period will 
end on October 18, 2022.
    Accordingly, it is hereby ordered

addresses at: 2531 West Maryland Avenue, Tampa, FL 33629, and when
