For any individually examined respondent whose weighted average dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., is 0.50 percent or more) 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).12 We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review when the importerspecific 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. For those companies not assigned a separate rate from a prior segment of the proceeding, the Department stated that they are not separate from the Vietnamwide entity and that the administrative review will continue for these companies. The Department recently announced a refinement to its assessment practice in non-market economy cases. Pursuant to this refinement in practice, for entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by companies individually examined during this review, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the Vietnam-wide rate. Additionally, if the Department determines that an exporter had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under that exporter’s case number (i.e., at that exporter’s rate) will 11 See 19 CFR 351.212(b). these preliminary results, the Department applied the assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012). 12 In VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:29 Mar 21, 2014 Jkt 232001 be liquidated at the Vietnam-wide rate.13 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. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for shipments of the subject merchandise from Vietnam entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided by sections 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the companies listed above, which have a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that established in the final results of this review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, then zero cash deposit will be required); (2) for previously investigated or reviewed Vietnam and non-Vietnam exporters not listed above that received a separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing exporter-specific rate; (3) for all Vietnam exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that for the Vietnamwide entity; and (4) for all non-Vietnam exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the Vietnam exporter that supplied that non-Vietnam exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Dated: March 18, 2014. Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.

Disclosure and Public Comment

    The Department will disclose the calculations used in our analysis 
to parties in this review within five days of the date of publication 
of this notice. Interested parties may submit written comments in the 
form of case briefs within 30 days of publication of the preliminary 
results and rebuttal comments in the form of rebuttal briefs within 
five days after the time limit for filing case briefs.\7\ Rebuttal 
briefs must be limited to issues raised in the case briefs.\8\ Parties

    \5\ In AR6 VN Shrimp, the Department found the companies 
comprising the Minh Phu Group are a single entity and, because there 
have been no changes to the facts which supported this determination 
since the sixth administrative review, we continue to find these 
companies to be part of a single entity. Therefore, we will assign 
this rate to the companies in the single entity. See Certain Frozen 
Warmwater Shrimp From the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Preliminary 
Results of Administrative Review, 77 FR 13547, 13549 (March 7, 
2012), unchanged in Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From the

    \6\ In AR5 VN Shrimp, the Department found the companies 
comprising Nha Trang Seafoods are a single entity and, because there 
have been no changes to the fact which supported this determination 
since the fifth administrative review; we continue to find these 
companies to be part of a single entity. Therefore, we will assign 
this rate to the companies in the single entity. See Certain Frozen

    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 Enforcement and Compliance, U.S. Department of 
Commerce, filed electronically using IA ACCESS. An electronically filed 
document must be received successfully in its entirety in IA ACCESS, by 
5 p.m. Eastern Time within 30 days after the date of publication of 
this notice.\10\ Requests should contain the party's name, address, and 
telephone number, the number of participants, and a list of the issues 
to be discussed. If a request for a hearing is made, the Department 
will inform parties of the scheduled date for the hearing which will be 
held at the U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution 
Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230, at a time and location to be 
determined. Parties should confirm by telephone the date, time, and 
location of the hearing. Interested parties are invited to comment on 
the preliminary results of this review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ See 19 CFR 351.310(c).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department intends to issue the final results of this 
administrative review, including the results of our analysis of issues 
raised in the written

[[Page 15944]]

comments, within 120 days of publication of these preliminary results 
in the Federal Register.

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, 
and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this 
review.\11\ The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to 
CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final results of this 
review. For any individually examined respondent whose weighted average 
dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., is 0.50 percent or more) 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).\12\ We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on 
all appropriate entries covered by this review when the 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. 
For those companies not assigned a separate rate from a prior segment 
of the proceeding, the Department stated that they are not separate 
from the Vietnam-wide entity and that the administrative review will 
continue for these companies.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b).
    \12\ In these preliminary results, the Department applied the 
assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping 
Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and 
Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final 
Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department recently announced a refinement to its assessment 
practice in non-market economy cases. Pursuant to this refinement in 
practice, for entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales 
databases submitted by companies individually examined during this 
review, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at 
the Vietnam-wide rate. Additionally, if the Department determines that 
an exporter had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended 
entries that entered under that exporter's case number (i.e., at that 
exporter's rate) will be liquidated at the Vietnam-wide rate.\13\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Non-Market 
Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for 
shipments of the subject merchandise from Vietnam entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided by sections 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the companies 
listed above, which have a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be 
that established in the final results of this review (except, if the 
rate is zero or de minimis, then zero cash deposit will be required); 
(2) for previously investigated or reviewed Vietnam and non-Vietnam 
exporters not listed above that received a separate rate in a prior 
segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be 
the existing exporter-specific rate; (3) for all Vietnam exporters of 
subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a 
separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that for the Vietnam-wide 
entity; and (4) for all non-Vietnam exporters of subject merchandise 
which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be 
the rate applicable to the Vietnam exporter that supplied that non-
Vietnam 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 Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    This determination is issued and published in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: March 18, 2014.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
