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.

AGENCY: E:\FR\FM\24MRN1.SGM 24MRN1 15952 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 56 / Monday, March 24, 2014 / Notices The Department of Commerce (Department) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp (shrimp) from Thailand.1 The review covers 159 2 producers/exporters of the subject merchandise. The period of review (POR) is February 1, 2012, through January 31, 2013. The Department is examining the following exporters/producers on an individual basis: Thai Union Frozen Products Public Co., Ltd. and Thai Union Seafood Co., Ltd. (collectively, Thai Union) for the period February 1, 2012, through April 22, 2012; the Pakfood Group 3 for the period February 1, 2012, through April 22, 2012; and Thai Union/Pakfood for the period April 23, 2012 through January 31, 2013.4 We preliminarily determined that sales to the United States have been made below normal value (NV) and, therefore, are subject to antidumping duties. We also are rescinding this review with respect to Marine Gold Products Limited (Marine Gold) because the order with respect to shrimp produced and exported by this company was revoked effective February 1, 2012. 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. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results. DATES: Effective Date: March 24, 2014. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dennis McClure, AD/CVD Operations, WREIER-AVILES on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: 1 The deadline for the preliminary results of this review was March 17, 2014. Due to the closure of the Federal Government in Washington, DC on March 17, 2014, the Department reached this determination on the next business day (i.e., March 18, 2014). See Notice of Clarification: Application of ‘‘Next Business Day’’ Rule for Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant to the Tariff Act of 1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005). 2 This figure does not include two companies for which the Department is rescinding the administrative review. 3 The Pakfood Group includes the following companies: Pakfood Public Company Limited, Okeanos Co., Ltd., Okeanos Food Co., Ltd., Asia Pacific (Thailand) Co., Ltd., Chaophraya Cold Storage Co., Ltd., and Takzin Samut Co., Ltd. (collectively, Pakfood). 4 In this review, the Department determined to treat the Pakfood Group as a collapsed entity with Thai Union, effective as of April 23, 2012. See the memorandum from Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, to Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, entitled, ‘‘Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary Results of the Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Thailand,’’ dated concurrently with these results (Preliminary Decision Memorandum), which is hereby adopted by this notice.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to the order is certain frozen warmwater shrimp.5 The product is currently classified under the following Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) item numbers: 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 for customs purposes, the written product description remains dispositive. Partial Rescission of Review On July 16, 2013, the Department published its final results for the February 1, 2011, through January 31, 2012, administrative review of the antidumping duty order on shrimp from Thailand.6 In that review, we found that Marine Gold met the requirements of revocation as described in 19 CFR 351.222(b) 7 and, thus, we revoked the antidumping duty order on shrimp from Thailand (Shrimp Order) with respect to subject merchandise produced and exported by Marine Gold. As a result of Marine Gold’s revocation in the 2011– 2012 administrative review, we are rescinding this administrative review with respect to Marine Gold because the merchandise produced and sold by Marine Gold is not subject to the Shrimp Order as of February 1, 2012. Because we revoked the Shrimp Order with respect to subject merchandise produced and exported by Marine Gold, we instructed CBP that entries of such merchandise that were suspended on or 5 For a complete description of the scope of the Order, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. 6 See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From Thailand: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, Partial Rescission of Review, and Revocation of Order (in Part); 2011– 2012, 78 FR 42497, 42499 (July 16, 2013) (Shrimp AR7 Final Results). 7 The Department modified the section of its regulations concerning the revocation of antidumping and countervailing duty orders in whole or in part, but that modification did not apply to the February 1, 2011, through January 31, 2012, administrative review. See Modification to Regulation Concerning the Revocation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Orders, 77 FR 29875 (May 21, 2012). The reference to 19 CFR 351.222(b) refers to the Department’s regulations prior to the modification. The modification applies to the instant administrative review. PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 after February 1, 2012, should be liquidated without regard to antidumping duties. In addition, in the Shrimp AR7 Final Results, the Department determined that one non-selected respondent, Tanaya International Co., Ltd. (Tanaya) is nether an exporter nor a manufacturer of subject merchandise, as defined in 19 CFR 351.213(b), and, accordingly, we rescinded the review with respect to this entity. Consistent with our finding in the AR7 Final Results, and because Tanaya is not an interested party in this proceeding, we find our initiation with respect to Tanaya was improper, and we are rescinding this review with respect to this company. Preliminary Determination of No Shipments Among the companies under review, 13 companies properly filed statements reporting that they made no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR.8 Based on the certifications submitted by all 13 of these companies and our analysis of CBP information, we preliminarily determine that the following 13 companies did not have any reviewable transactions during the POR: (1) Anglo-Siam Seafoods Co., Ltd.; (2) Daedong (Thailand) Co., Ltd.; (3) Grobest Frozen Foods Co., Ltd.; (4) GSE Lining Technology Co., Ltd.; (5) Leo Global Logistics Co., Ltd; (6) Leo Transports; (7) Lucky Union Foods Co., Ltd.; (8) Namprick Maesri Ltd. Part.; (9) S.K. Foods (Thailand) Public Co. Limited; (10) Shing-Fu Seaproducts Development Co., Ltd.; (11) Surapon Nichirei Foods Co., Ltd.; (12) Thai Union Manufacturing ; and (13) V. Thai Food Product Co., Ltd. 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.9 Finally, the Department received an improperly-filed no shipment certification from another Thai company involved in this review, CP Retailing and Marketing Co., Ltd., as well as an 8 For a full explanation of the Department’s analysis, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. 9 See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From Thailand: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Intent to Revoke the Order (In Part); 2011–2012, 78 FR 15686, 15687 (March 12, 2013), unchanged in Shrimp AR7 Final Results, 78 FR at 42498. E:\FR\FM\24MRN1.SGM 24MRN1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 56 / Monday, March 24, 2014 / Notices improperly-filed notification from an additional company, Thai Ocean Venture Co., Ltd., that it is not a producer/exporter. We 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 they failed to remedy the procedural defeciencies in their submissions, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303(g)(1), despite the Department’s request that they do so, and thus their submissions were not accepted for the administrative record of this review. Therefore, we are continuing to include both CP Retailing and Marketing Co., Ltd. and Thai Ocean Venture Co., Ltd. in this administrative review, and we assigned these companies a preliminary dumping rate based on the margin calculated for Thai Union/Pakfood pursuant to section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act. WREIER-AVILES on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Methodology The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 751(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Export price is calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Normal value is calculated in accordance with section 773 of the Act. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

For entries of Thai Union/Pakfood’s subject merchandise made from April 23, 2012, through January 31, 2013, 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. See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). With respect to entries of subject merchandise by Thai Union and Pakfood prior to April 23, 2013, we will calculate importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment rates using the individual company information based on the same method noted above. 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 rate calculated for Thai Union/Pakfood. 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 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 Thai Union/Pakfood 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 entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.

Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From Thailand; Preliminary 
Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, Partial Rescission 
of Review, Preliminary Determination of No Shipments; 2012-2013

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, formerly Import Administration, 
International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce.


[[Page 15952]]


SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Department) is conducting an 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen 
warmwater shrimp (shrimp) from Thailand.\1\ The review covers 159 \2\ 
producers/exporters of the subject merchandise. The period of review 
(POR) is February 1, 2012, through January 31, 2013.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The deadline for the preliminary results of this review was 
March 17, 2014. Due to the closure of the Federal Government in 
Washington, DC on March 17, 2014, the Department reached this 
determination on the next business day (i.e., March 18, 2014). See 
Notice of Clarification: Application of ``Next Business Day'' Rule 
for Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant to the Tariff 
Act of 1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005).
    \2\ This figure does not include two companies for which the 
Department is rescinding the administrative review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department is examining the following exporters/producers on an 
individual basis: Thai Union Frozen Products Public Co., Ltd. and Thai 
Union Seafood Co., Ltd. (collectively, Thai Union) for the period 
February 1, 2012, through April 22, 2012; the Pakfood Group \3\ for the 
period February 1, 2012, through April 22, 2012; and Thai Union/Pakfood 
for the period April 23, 2012 through January 31, 2013.\4\ We 
preliminarily determined that sales to the United States have been made 
below normal value (NV) and, therefore, are subject to antidumping 
duties. We also are rescinding this review with respect to Marine Gold 
Products Limited (Marine Gold) because the order with respect to shrimp 
produced and exported by this company was revoked effective February 1, 
2012.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ The Pakfood Group includes the following companies: Pakfood 
Public Company Limited, Okeanos Co., Ltd., Okeanos Food Co., Ltd., 
Asia Pacific (Thailand) Co., Ltd., Chaophraya Cold Storage Co., 
Ltd., and Takzin Samut Co., Ltd. (collectively, Pakfood).
    \4\ In this review, the Department determined to treat the 
Pakfood Group as a collapsed entity with Thai Union, effective as of 
April 23, 2012. See the memorandum from Christian Marsh, Deputy 
Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations, to Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and 
Compliance, entitled, ``Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary 
Results of the Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order 
on Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Thailand,'' dated 
concurrently with these results (Preliminary Decision Memorandum), 
which is hereby adopted by this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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. Interested 
parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results.

DATES: Effective Date: March 24, 2014.

Office II, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and

5973.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to the order is certain frozen warmwater 
shrimp.\5\ The product is currently classified under the following 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) item numbers: 
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 for customs 
purposes, the written product description remains dispositive.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ For a complete description of the scope of the Order, see 
the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Partial Rescission of Review

    On July 16, 2013, the Department published its final results for 
the February 1, 2011, through January 31, 2012, administrative review 
of the antidumping duty order on shrimp from Thailand.\6\ In that 
review, we found that Marine Gold met the requirements of revocation as 
described in 19 CFR 351.222(b) \7\ and, thus, we revoked the 
antidumping duty order on shrimp from Thailand (Shrimp Order) with 
respect to subject merchandise produced and exported by Marine Gold. As 
a result of Marine Gold's revocation in the 2011-2012 administrative 
review, we are rescinding this administrative review with respect to 
Marine Gold because the merchandise produced and sold by Marine Gold is 
not subject to the Shrimp Order as of February 1, 2012.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From Thailand: Final 
Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, Partial 
Rescission of Review, and Revocation of Order (in Part); 2011-2012, 
78 FR 42497, 42499 (July 16, 2013) (Shrimp AR7 Final Results).
    \7\ The Department modified the section of its regulations 
concerning the revocation of antidumping and countervailing duty 
orders in whole or in part, but that modification did not apply to 
the February 1, 2011, through January 31, 2012, administrative 
review. See Modification to Regulation Concerning the Revocation of 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Orders, 77 FR 29875 (May 21, 
2012). The reference to 19 CFR 351.222(b) refers to the Department's 
regulations prior to the modification. The modification applies to 
the instant administrative review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Because we revoked the Shrimp Order with respect to subject 
merchandise produced and exported by Marine Gold, we instructed CBP 
that entries of such merchandise that were suspended on or after 
February 1, 2012, should be liquidated without regard to antidumping 
duties.
    In addition, in the Shrimp AR7 Final Results, the Department 
determined that one non-selected respondent, Tanaya International Co., 
Ltd. (Tanaya) is nether an exporter nor a manufacturer of subject 
merchandise, as defined in 19 CFR 351.213(b), and, accordingly, we 
rescinded the review with respect to this entity. Consistent with our 
finding in the AR7 Final Results, and because Tanaya is not an 
interested party in this proceeding, we find our initiation with 
respect to Tanaya was improper, and we are rescinding this review with 
respect to this company.

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    Among the companies under review, 13 companies properly filed 
statements reporting that they made no shipments of subject merchandise 
to the United States during the POR.\8\ Based on the certifications 
submitted by all 13 of these companies and our analysis of CBP 
information, we preliminarily determine that the following 13 companies 
did not have any reviewable transactions during the POR:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ For a full explanation of the Department's analysis, see the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (1) Anglo-Siam Seafoods Co., Ltd.;
    (2) Daedong (Thailand) Co., Ltd.;
    (3) Grobest Frozen Foods Co., Ltd.;
    (4) GSE Lining Technology Co., Ltd.;
    (5) Leo Global Logistics Co., Ltd;
    (6) Leo Transports;
    (7) Lucky Union Foods Co., Ltd.;
    (8) Namprick Maesri Ltd. Part.;
    (9) S.K. Foods (Thailand) Public Co., Limited;
    (10) Shing-Fu Seaproducts Development Co., Ltd.;
    (11) Surapon Nichirei Foods Co., Ltd.;
    (12) Thai Union Manufacturing ; and
    (13) V. Thai Food Product Co., Ltd.
    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.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From Thailand: 
Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and 
Intent to Revoke the Order (In Part); 2011-2012, 78 FR 15686, 15687 
(March 12, 2013), unchanged in Shrimp AR7 Final Results, 78 FR at 
42498.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Finally, the Department received an improperly-filed no shipment 
certification from another Thai company involved in this review, CP 
Retailing and Marketing Co., Ltd., as well as an

[[Page 15953]]

improperly-filed notification from an additional company, Thai Ocean 
Venture Co., Ltd., that it is not a producer/exporter. We 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 they failed to remedy the 
procedural defeciencies in their submissions, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.303(g)(1), despite the Department's request that they do so, and 
thus their submissions were not accepted for the administrative record 
of this review. Therefore, we are continuing to include both CP 
Retailing and Marketing Co., Ltd. and Thai Ocean Venture Co., Ltd. in 
this administrative review, and we assigned these companies a 
preliminary dumping rate based on the margin calculated for Thai Union/
Pakfood pursuant to section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act.

Methodology

    The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Export price 
is calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Normal value 
is calculated in accordance with section 773 of the Act.
    For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. The Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically 
via Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Centralized Electronic Service System (IA ACCESS). IA ACCESS is 
available to registered users at http://iaaccess.trade.gov and in the 
Central Records Unit, Room 7046 of the main Department of Commerce 
building. In addition, a complete version of the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum can be accessed directly at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/index.html. The signed Preliminary Decision Memorandum and the 
electronic version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical 
in content.

Preliminary Results of the Review

    As a result of this review, we preliminarily determine that 
weighted-average dumping margins exist for the respondents for the 
period February 1, 2012, through January 31, 2013, as follows:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                                Percent

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

    Review-Specific  Average Rate Applicable to the Following Non-
Selected Companies:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ This cash deposit rate is based on the combined sales of 
Thai Union and Pakfood after the companies were collapsed (i.e., 
sales made during the period April 23, 2012, through January 31, 
2013). The rates calculated for Thai Union and Pakfood for the 
period February 1, 2012, through April 22, 2012, are zero percent 
and 2.09 percent, respectively. The calculations for the period 
February 1, 2012, through April 22, 2012, will be used for 
assessment purposes only, as noted in the ``Collapsing of Thai Union 
and Pakfood'' section of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

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 entries of Thai Union/Pakfood's subject merchandise made from 
April 23, 2012, through January 31, 2013, 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. See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). With 
respect to entries of subject merchandise by Thai Union and Pakfood 
prior to April 23, 2013, we will calculate importer-specific ad valorem 
duty assessment rates using the individual company information based on 
the same method noted above.
    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 rate calculated for Thai Union/Pakfood.
    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 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 Thai Union/Pakfood 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 entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the 
intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. For a full

[[Page 15955]]

discussion of this clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 
2003).
    We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following 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 will continue to be the company-specific rate 
published for the most recently completed segment; (3) if the exporter 
is not a firm covered in this review, or the original less-than-fair-
value (LTFV) investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit 
rate will be the rate established for the most recent segment 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.

United States Antidumping Measure on Shrimp from Thailand: Notice of 
Determination Under Section 129 of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act

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) 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 18, 2014.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
