SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) has received information sufficient to warrant reconsideration of a completed changed circumstances review (‘‘CCR’’) of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) originally conducted in 2007.1 Based on evidence uncovered in the sixth administrative review (‘‘AR6’’) of this proceeding,2 we find the information submitted by Hilltop International (‘‘Hilltop’’) 3 in this CCR contains material misrepresentations and, consequently, is unusable for any purposes. Accordingly, our original determination that Hilltop is the successor-in-interest to Yelin Enterprise Co. Hong Kong (‘‘Yelin’’) is reversed such that Hilltop should properly be considered part of the PRC-wide entity, absent a determination of its own rate separate from the PRC-wide entity.4 AGENCY: 1 See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review, 72 FR 33447 (June 18, 2007). 2 See Administrative Review of Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From the People’s Republic of China: Final Results, Partial Rescission of Sixth Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Determination Not To Revoke in Part, 77 FR 53856 (‘‘PRC Shrimp AR6 Final’’). 3 In the final results of the recently completed seventh administrative review, the Department noted that Hilltop, as in prior reviews, has reported that it is affiliated with Yangjiang City Yelin Hoitat Quick Frozen Seafood Co., Ltd., Fuqing Yihua Aquatic Food Co., Ltd., Yelin Enterprise Co., Ltd., Ocean Beauty Corporation, Ever Hope International Co., Ltd., Ocean Duke Corporation and Kingston Foods Corporation.

information sufficient to warrant reconsideration of a completed 
changed circumstances review (``CCR'') of the antidumping duty order on 
certain frozen warmwater shrimp from the People's Republic of China

that Hilltop is the successor-in-interest to Yelin Enterprise Co. Hong

considered part of the PRC-wide entity, absent a determination of its 
own rate separate from the PRC-wide entity.\4\

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

Final Reconsideration

    For the reasons detailed in the Final Reconsideration Memorandum, 
we continue to find that Hilltop is not the successor-in-interest to 
Yelin and is considered part of the PRC-wide entity. In making this 
determination we have relied on adverse facts available, in accordance 
with section 776(a) and (b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(``the Act'').

Instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection

    As a result of this determination, we reverse our previous 
successor-in-interest determination and find that Hilltop is not the 
successor-in-interest to Yelin. Although the reconsidered CCR precedes 
several administrative reviews in which Hilltop was involved, we note 
that this finding is consistent with the most recently completed 
seventh administrative review, in which Hilltop was determined to be 
part of the PRC-wide entity.\19\ Hilltop is currently subject to the 
cash deposit requirements applicable to the PRC-wide entity, which is 
112.81 percent. We also note that this finding is consistent with the 
Department's most recent findings in the fourth, fifth, and six 
administrative reviews, in which Hilltop was found to be part of the 
PRC-wide entity.\20\ Thus, Hilltop's current cash deposit requirement 
shall remain in effect until further notice.
