SUMMARY: On March 24, 2014, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Thailand.1 The period of review (POR) is February 1, 2012, through January 31, 2013. Based on our analysis of the comments received, we made certain changes in the margin calculations. Therefore, the final results differ from the preliminary results. For the final results, we continue to find that all companies involved in this review sold subject merchandise at less than normal value. Finally, we find that 12 companies had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. DATES: Effective Date: August 28, 2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background This review covers 159 producers/ exporters. The respondents which the Department selected for individual examination are Thai Union Frozen Products Public Co., Ltd. and Thai Union Seafood Co., Ltd. (collectively, Thai Union) and the Pakfood Group.2 On July 26, 2013, we collapsed Thai Union and Pakfood into a single entity, hereinafter referred to as ‘‘Thai Union/ Pakfood’’).3 The respondents which were not selected for individual examination are listed in the ‘‘Final Results of the Review’’ section of this notice. On March 24, 2014, the Department published the Preliminary Results. On March 25, 2014, we issued a memorandum stating our intention to rescind the review for two companies that the Department found not to be producers or exporters of subject merchandise, as defined in 19 CFR 351.213(b) and 351.102(b)(29)(i).4 In May 2014, we received case briefs from the American Shrimp Processors Association and Thai Union/Pakfood, and we received rebuttal briefs from the above-mentioned interested parties and the the Ad Hoc Shrimp Trade Action Committee. Also on May 15, 2014, the Department held a public hearing at the request of the respondents. Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to the order is certain frozen warmwater shrimp.5 The product is currently classified 2 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). 3 In this review, the Department determined to treat the Pakfood Group as a collapsed entity with Thai Union, effective as of April 23, 2012.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on comments received from interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we made one change to Thai Union/Pakfood’s margin calculations. Period of Review The POR is February 1, 2012, through January 31, 2013. Determination of No Shipments As noted in the Preliminary Results, we received properly-filed no shipment claims from 13 companies named in the Initiation Notice.6 However, as noted in the ‘‘Rescission in Part’’ section of this notice, below, we subsequently determined that one of these companies is not an exporter or producer of shrimp and thus we are rescinding the review with regard to this company. Regarding the remaining 12 companies, we confirmed the claims of these companies with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). We received no comments from interested parties with 6 See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From India and Thailand: Notice of Initiation of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews, 78 FR 19639 (April 2, 2013) (Initiation Notice).

Because no party has commented on this preliminary decision, we continue to find that GSE and Kosamut are not exporters or producers, as defined in 19 CFR 351.213(b), and, accordingly, the Department is rescinding the review with respect to GSE and Kosamut, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3). Percent margin respect to these claims. Therefore, because we find that the record indicates that the 12 companies listed below did not export subject merchandise to the United States during the POR, we continue to find that they had no reviewable transactions during the POR. These companies are: (1) Anglo-Siam Seafoods Co., Ltd.; (2) Daedong (Thailand) Co. Ltd.; (3) Grobest Frozen Foods Co., Ltd.; (4) Leo Global Logistics Co., Ltd; (5) Leo Transports; (6) Lucky Union Foods Co., Ltd.; (7) Namprick Maesri Ltd. Part.; (8) S.K. Foods (Thailand) Public Co. Limited; (9) Shing-Fu Seaproducts Development Co., Ltd.; (10) Surapon Nichirei Foods Co., Ltd.; (11) Thai Union Manufacturing; and (12) V. Thai Food Product Co., Ltd. Final Results of the Review We are assigning the following dumping margins to the firms listed below as follows: Manufacturer/exporter Rescission, in Part The Department initiated this administrative review for 161 companies, including companies named GSE Lining Technology Co., Ltd. (GSE) and Kosamut Frozen Foods Co., Ltd. (Kosamut).7 In the Preliminary Results, we made a determination that GSE did not ship subject merchandise to the United States during the period of review, based on its certified statement of no shipments; 8 and we assigned Kosamut a preliminary dumping margin as a non-selected respondent.9 After issuing the preliminary results, it came to our attention that neither GSE nor Kosamut is a producer or exporter of subject merchandise, as defined in 19 CFR 351.213(b), and thus we issued a memorandum stating that the Department intended to rescind the review for both of these companies in the final results. Specifically, in its April 2013 statement of no shipments, GSE certified that it is a manufacturer of geosynthetic liners and that it is not, and has never been, involved in the sale of shrimp or other seafood. Moreover, in Shrimp AR7 Final Results,10 the Department determined that Kosamut is neither an exporter nor a manufacturer of subject merchandise, and accordingly, we rescinded the review with respect to this entity; there is no evidence on the record of this segment 11 1.10 ................ ................ ................ ................ ................ ................

Pursuant to 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 have calculated 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. With respect to entries of subject merchandise by Thai Union and Pakfood prior to April 23, 2012, we have calculated importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment rates using the individual company information based on the same method noted above. To determine whether the duty assessment rates are de minimis, in accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we have calculated importer-specific ad valorem ratios based on the entered value. For the companies which were not selected for individual examination, we have used as the assessment rate the cash deposit rate assigned to Thai Union/Pakfood, in accordance with our practice.12 The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the 12 See PO 00000 Shrimp AR7 Final Results, 78 FR at 42500.

Notification to Importers This notice serves as the only 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.

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

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: On March 24, 2014, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from 
Thailand.\1\ The period of review (POR) is February 1, 2012, through 
January 31, 2013. Based on our analysis of the comments received, we 
made certain changes in the margin calculations. Therefore, the final 
results differ from the preliminary results. For the final results, we 
continue to find that all companies involved in this review sold 
subject merchandise at less than normal value. Finally, we find that 12 
companies had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    This review covers 159 producers/exporters. The respondents which 
the Department selected for individual examination are Thai Union 
Frozen Products Public Co., Ltd. and Thai Union Seafood Co., Ltd. 
(collectively, Thai Union) and the Pakfood Group.\2\ On July 26, 2013, 
we collapsed Thai Union and Pakfood into a single entity, hereinafter 
referred to as ``Thai Union/Pakfood'').\3\ The respondents which were 
not selected for individual examination are listed in the ``Final 
Results of the Review'' section of this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ 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).
    \3\ 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 Preliminary Results.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On March 24, 2014, the Department published the Preliminary 
Results. On March 25, 2014, we issued a memorandum stating our 
intention to rescind the review for two companies that the Department 
found not to be producers or exporters of subject merchandise, as 
defined in 19 CFR 351.213(b) and 351.102(b)(29)(i).\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See memorandum from Dennis McClure, Senior Analyst, Office 
II, to James Maeder, Director, Office II, entitled ``Frozen 
Warmwater Shrimp from Thailand: Preliminary Intent to Rescind Review 
for GSE Lining Technology Co., Ltd. and Recission of Review for 
Kosamut Frozen Foods Co., Ltd.,'' dated March 25, 2014.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In May 2014, we received case briefs from the American Shrimp 
Processors Association and Thai Union/Pakfood, and we received rebuttal 
briefs from the above-mentioned interested parties and the the Ad Hoc 
Shrimp Trade Action Committee. Also on May 15, 2014, the Department 
held a public hearing at the request of the respondents.

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 customs 
purposes, the written product description remains dispositive.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ For a complete description of the Scope of the Order, see 
the memorandum from Gary Taverman, Senior Advisor for Antidumping 
and Countervailing Duty Operations, to Ronald K. Lorentzen, Acting 
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, entitled, 
``Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Results of the 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Certain Frozen Warmwater 
Shrimp from Thailand,'' (dated concurrently with these results) 
(Issues and Decision Memo), which is hereby adopted by this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case briefs by parties are addressed in 
the Issues and Decision Memo. A list of the issues which parties raised 
and to which we respond in the Issues and Decision Memo is attached to 
this notice as Appendix I. The Issues and Decision Memo 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 Issues and Decision Memo can be accessed directly on the 
Internet at http://www.trade.gov/ia/. The signed and electronic 
versions of the Issues and Decision Memo are identical in content.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on comments received from interested parties regarding our 
Preliminary Results, we made one change to Thai Union/Pakfood's margin 
calculations.

Period of Review

    The POR is February 1, 2012, through January 31, 2013.

Determination of No Shipments

    As noted in the Preliminary Results, we received properly-filed no 
shipment claims from 13 companies named in the Initiation Notice.\6\ 
However, as noted in the ``Rescission in Part'' section of this notice, 
below, we subsequently determined that one of these companies is not an 
exporter or producer of shrimp and thus we are rescinding the review 
with regard to this company.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From India and Thailand: 
Notice of Initiation of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews, 78 
FR 19639 (April 2, 2013) (Initiation Notice).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Regarding the remaining 12 companies, we confirmed the claims of 
these companies with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). We 
received no comments from interested parties with

[[Page 51307]]

respect to these claims. Therefore, because we find that the record 
indicates that the 12 companies listed below did not export subject 
merchandise to the United States during the POR, we continue to find 
that they had no reviewable transactions during the POR. These 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
companies are:

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

Rescission, in Part

    The Department initiated this administrative review for 161 
companies, including companies named GSE Lining Technology Co., Ltd. 
(GSE) and Kosamut Frozen Foods Co., Ltd. (Kosamut).\7\ In the 
Preliminary Results, we made a determination that GSE did not ship 
subject merchandise to the United States during the period of review, 
based on its certified statement of no shipments; \8\ and we assigned 
Kosamut a preliminary dumping margin as a non-selected respondent.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From India and Thailand: 
Notice of Initiation of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews, 78 
FR 19639 (April 2, 2013).
    \8\ See the letter from GSE to the Department dated April 16, 
2013.
    \9\ See Preliminary Results, 79 FR at 15953.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    After issuing the preliminary results, it came to our attention 
that neither GSE nor Kosamut is a producer or exporter of subject 
merchandise, as defined in 19 CFR 351.213(b), and thus we issued a 
memorandum stating that the Department intended to rescind the review 
for both of these companies in the final results. Specifically, in its 
April 2013 statement of no shipments, GSE certified that it is a 
manufacturer of geosynthetic liners and that it is not, and has never 
been, involved in the sale of shrimp or other seafood. Moreover, in 
Shrimp AR7 Final Results,\10\ the Department determined that Kosamut is 
neither an exporter nor a manufacturer of subject merchandise, and 
accordingly, we rescinded the review with respect to this entity; there 
is no evidence on the record of this segment of the proceeding 
contradicting our finding with respect to Kosamut.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ 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).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Because no party has commented on this preliminary decision, we 
continue to find that GSE and Kosamut are not exporters or producers, 
as defined in 19 CFR 351.213(b), and, accordingly, the Department is 
rescinding the review with respect to GSE and Kosamut, pursuant to 19 
CFR 351.213(d)(3).

Final Results of the Review

    We are assigning the following dumping margins to the firms listed 
below as follows:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                                Percent
                    Manufacturer/exporter                        margin

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

    \11\ 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

    The Department shall determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries. Pursuant to 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 have calculated 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. With respect to entries of 
subject merchandise by Thai Union and Pakfood prior to April 23, 2012, 
we have calculated importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment rates 
using the individual company information based on the same method noted 
above. To determine whether the duty assessment rates are de minimis, 
in accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), 
we have calculated importer-specific ad valorem ratios based on the 
entered value. For the companies which were not selected for individual 
examination, we have used as the assessment rate the cash deposit rate 
assigned to Thai Union/Pakfood, in accordance with our practice.\12\ 
The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days 
after the date of publication of these final results of review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ See Shrimp AR7 Final Results, 78 FR at 42500.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of 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 rates for the reviewed companies will be 
the rates shown above, except if the rate is less than 0.50 percent (de 
minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1)) the cash deposit 
will be zero; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not 
listed above, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as the only 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.
