Download as PDF 54678 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 177 / Friday, September 12, 2014 / Notices OMB Control Number: 0596–0141. Summary of Collection: The Conference Report accompanying the 1997 Omnibus Appropriation Act (Pub L. 104–208) requires that the Forest Service (FS) establish a process by which purchasers may appeal decisions concerning recomputations of Small Business Set-aside (SBA) shares or structural recomputations of SBA shares, or changes in policies impacting the Small Business Timber Sale SetAside Program. FS adopted the Small Business Timber Sale Set-Aside Program on July 26, 1990. FS administers the program in cooperation with the Small Business Administration under the authorities of the Small Business Act of 1988, the National Forest Management Act of 1976, and SBA’s regulations at Part 121 of Title 13 of the Code of Federal Regulations. The program is designed to ensure that small business timber purchasers have the opportunity to purchase a fair proportion of National Forest System timber offered for sale. Need and Use of the Information: Under the program, the FS must recompute the shares of timber sales to be set aside for qualifying small businesses every five years based on the actual volume of saw timber purchased by small businesses. Re-computation of shares must occur if there is a change in manufacturing capability, if the purchaser size class changes, or if certain purchaser(s) discontinue operations. The appeal information is collected in writing and is possible, in most locations to be sent via email and attached documents to a Forest Service Officer. The collected information is reviewed by FS officials who use the information to render decisions related to re-computations of timber sale share to be set-aside for small business timber purchasers.

Preliminary Results of Review Based upon the no shipment certifications of SYEC and Regal, and our review of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) information, we preliminarily find that SYEC and Regal had no shipments during the POR. The Department’s policy is to conduct administrative reviews only where there exists at least one POR entry of subject merchandise, because duties cannot be assessed where there are no suspended entries.8 Because there cannot be a review where there are no entries, companies that certify to no shipments retain their most recently-determined separate rate, provided that no information contrary to those claims is presented to, or obtained by, the Department. Therefore, SYEC and Regal retain their separate rate status from prior reviews.9 Because Smart Foods was previously found to be part of the PRC-wide entity and continues to be part of the entity in this review,10 we are not making a determination regarding 6 In the Initiation Notice, we stated that because the order was revoked with respect to subject merchandise produced and exported by Regal, this administrative review covers all subject merchandise exported by Regal and manufactured by any company other than Regal.

We also preliminarily find that 58 companies, including Smart Foods, should be treated as part of the PRCwide entity. The Department’s change in policy regarding conditional review of the PRC-wide entity applies to this administrative review.11 Under this policy, the PRC-wide entity will not be under review unless a party specifically requests, or the Department selfinitiates, a review of the entity. Because no party requested a review of the PRCwide entity, the entity is not under review and the entity’s rate is not subject to change.

Methodology

    The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''). For a 
full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum, which is hereby adopted by this 
notice. 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

Internet at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. The signed Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum are identical in content.

Background

    On April 1, 2014, the Department initiated an administrative review 
of the Order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from the PRC covering 
60 companies for the POR.\3\ The Initiation Notice notifies the firms 
for which a review was initiated that they ``must complete, as 
appropriate, either a separate rate application or certification'' if 
they want to qualify for a separate rate in this administrative 
review.\4\ The Initiation Notice also states that ``{i{time} f a 
producer or exporter named in this notice of initiation had no exports, 
sales, or entries during the period of review . . . it must notify the 
Department within 60 days of publication of this notice in the Federal 
Register.'' \5\ Shantou Yuexing Enterprise Company (``SYEC''), Rizhao 
Smart Foods Co., Ltd. (``Smart Foods''), and Zhanjiang Regal Integrated 
Marine Resources Co., Ltd. (``Regal'') \6\ submitted ``no shipment 
certifications'' to the Department.\7\ No companies under review filed 
separate rate certifications or applications.

Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 79 FR

    \4\ Id., 79 FR 18263.
    \5\ Id., 79 FR 18262.
    \6\ In the Initiation Notice, we stated that because the order 
was revoked with respect to subject merchandise produced and 
exported by Regal, this administrative review covers all subject 
merchandise exported by Regal and manufactured by any company other 
than Regal. See Initiation Notice 79 FR 18275 at footnote 5.
    \7\ See Letter to the Secretary of Commerce from Shantou Yuexing 
``Shantou Yuexing Enterprise Company's Request for rescinding an 
Administrative Review'' (April 2, 2014); Letter to the Secretary of 
Commerce from Rizhao Smart Foods Co., Ltd. ``Certificate of No 
Sales'' (April 9, 2014); Letter to the Secretary of Commerce from 
Zhanjiang Regal Integrated Marine Resources Co., Ltd. ``No Shipments 
Statement of Zhanjiang Regal Integrated Marine Resources Co., Ltd.'' 
(June 2, 2014).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preliminary Results of Review

    Based upon the no shipment certifications of SYEC and Regal, and 
our review of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') information, 
we preliminarily find that SYEC and Regal had no shipments during the 
POR. The Department's policy is to conduct administrative reviews only 
where there exists at least one POR entry of subject merchandise, 
because duties cannot be assessed where there are no suspended 
entries.\8\ Because there cannot be a review where there are no 
entries, companies that certify to no shipments retain their most 
recently-determined separate rate, provided that no information 
contrary to those claims is presented to, or obtained by, the 
Department. Therefore, SYEC and Regal retain their separate rate status 
from prior reviews.\9\ Because Smart Foods was previously found to be 
part of the PRC-wide entity and continues to be part of the entity in 
this review,\10\ we are not making a determination regarding no

    We also preliminarily find that 58 companies, including Smart 
Foods, should be treated as part of the PRC-wide entity. The 
Department's change in policy regarding conditional review of the PRC-
wide entity applies to this administrative review.\11\ Under this 
policy, the PRC-wide entity will not be under review unless a party 
specifically requests, or the Department self-initiates, a review of 
the entity. Because no party requested a review of the PRC-wide entity, 
the entity is not under review and the entity's rate is not subject to 
change. The Department preliminarily finds that 58 companies \12\ under 
review have not established eligibility for a separate rate and, thus,

[[Page 54680]]

they should continue to be part of the PRC-wide entity.

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, 
and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. 
The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days 
after the date of publication of the final results of review. The 
Department announced a refinement to its assessment practice in non-
market economy (``NME'') cases.\18\ Pursuant to this refinement in 
practice, for entries that were not reported by companies examined 
during this review, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such 
entries at the NME-wide rate. In addition, if the Department determines 
that an exporter under review 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 
NME-wide rate.\19\

Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties,

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 the PRC 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 previously 
investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters that received a 
separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding that are not listed 
in footnote 12, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing 
exporter-specific rate; (2) for all PRC exporters of subject 
merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate 
(including the firms listed in footnote 12), the cash deposit rate will 
be the existing rate for the PRC-wide entity; and (3) for all non-PRC 
exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own 
rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC 
exporter that supplied that non-PRC exporter. These deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a preliminary reminder to the 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.
    This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 
777(i)(1) of the Act, 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: September 5, 2014.

Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
