VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:14 Sep 25, 2014 Jkt 232001 assigned in these final results are discussed in the Preliminary Results and the Issues and Decision Memorandum. Assessment Rates Upon issuance of these 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.7 The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final results of this review. Where assessments are based upon total facts available, including total AFA, we instruct CBP to assess duties at the AFA margin rate. The Department intends to instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on POR entries of the subject merchandise produced or exported by the PRC-wide entity (including Hilltop and Newpro) at the rate of 112.81 percent of the entered value.8 The final results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by this review and for future deposits of estimated duties, where applicable. The Department 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 PRC-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 PRC-wide rate.9 Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash-deposit requirements will be effective upon 7 See 19 CFR 351.212(b). 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). The Department continues to find in these final results that an importer-specific adjustment of the assessment rate for certain entries on shipments made by Newpro (which continues to be part of the PRC-wide entity) is warranted given the facts uncovered in this review. For further discussion of this issue and the resultant adjustment, see the Preliminary Results and the Memorandum to the File from Kabir Archuletta, Senior International Trade Analyst, Office V, through Catherine Bertrand, Program Manager, Office V ‘‘Administrative Review of Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From the People’s Republic of China: Business Proprietary Memo for the Preliminary Results’’ (March 18, 2014); see also the Issues and Decision Memorandum, at Comment 1. 9 See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011). 8 See PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 57873 publication of the final results of this administrative review for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most recent period; (2) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate (including Hilltop and Newpro), the cash deposit rate will be the PRC-wide rate of 112.81 percent; 10 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 exporters that supplied that nonPRC exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Reimbursement of Duties This notice also serves as a final 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 POR. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Department’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties. Administrative Protective Orders This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (‘‘APO’’) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. Timely written notification 10 We note that Allied, which is under review in this segment, was revoked from the order in specific manufacturer-exporter combinations, pursuant to the Department’s determination under Section 129 of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act, effective March 22, 2013. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From the People’s Republic of China and Diamond Sawblades and Parts Thereof From the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Implementation of Determinations Under Section 129 of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act and Partial Revocation of the Antidumping Duty Orders, 78 FR 18958 (March 28, 2013). Accordingly, entries made outside of the revoked manufacturer-exporter combinations will be subject to the PRC-wide rate, the most recently assigned rate for Allied.

entries during the POR.\4\ We have not received any information to 
contradict this determination. Therefore, the Department is making the

Pacific Aquatic Products (Zhanjiang) Co., Ltd. (collectively

performed in connection with the final results of review within five 
days of the date of publication of the notice of final results in the 
Federal Register, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b). However, 
because the Department applied AFA to each of the mandatory respondents 
in this review, as part of the PRC-wide entity, in accordance with 
section 776 of the Act, there are no calculations to disclose. 
Accordingly, the issues pertaining to the rates assigned in these final 
results are discussed in the Preliminary Results and the Issues and 
Decision Memorandum.

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of these 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.\7\ The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to 
CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final results of this 
review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Where assessments are based upon total facts available, including 
total AFA, we instruct CBP to assess duties at the AFA margin rate. The 
Department intends to instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on POR 
entries of the subject merchandise produced or exported by the PRC-wide 
entity (including Hilltop and Newpro) at the rate of 112.81 percent of 
the entered value.\8\ The final results of this review shall be the 
basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of 
merchandise covered by this review and for future deposits of estimated 
duties, where applicable.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). The Department continues to find 
in these final results that an importer-specific adjustment of the 
assessment rate for certain entries on shipments made by Newpro 
(which continues to be part of the PRC-wide entity) is warranted 
given the facts uncovered in this review. For further discussion of 
this issue and the resultant adjustment, see the Preliminary Results 
and the Memorandum to the File from Kabir Archuletta, Senior 
International Trade Analyst, Office V, through Catherine Bertrand, 
Program Manager, Office V ``Administrative Review of Certain Frozen 
Warmwater Shrimp From the People's Republic of China: Business 
Proprietary Memo for the Preliminary Results'' (March 18, 2014); see 
also the Issues and Decision Memorandum, at Comment 1.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department 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 PRC-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 PRC-wide rate.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment 
of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash-deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For previously 
investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above 
that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the 
exporter-specific rate published for the most recent period; (2) for 
all PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not been found to 
be entitled to a separate rate (including Hilltop and Newpro), the cash 
deposit rate will be the PRC-wide rate of 112.81 percent; \10\ 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 exporters that supplied that non-PRC exporter. 
These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ We note that Allied, which is under review in this segment, 
was revoked from the order in specific manufacturer-exporter 
combinations, pursuant to the Department's determination under 
Section 129 of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act, effective March 22, 
2013. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From the People's Republic 
of China and Diamond Sawblades and Parts Thereof From the People's 
Republic of China: Notice of Implementation of Determinations Under 
Section 129 of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act and Partial 
Revocation of the Antidumping Duty Orders, 78 FR 18958 (March 28, 
2013). Accordingly, entries made outside of the revoked 
manufacturer-exporter combinations will be subject to the PRC-wide 
rate, the most recently assigned rate for Allied. For further 
discussion, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum, at Comment 2.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Reimbursement of Duties

    This notice also serves as a final 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 POR. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in the Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (``APO'') of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, which continues 
to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the 
proceeding. Timely written notification

[[Page 57874]]

of the return/destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial 
protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the 
regulations and terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to 
sanction.
    We are issuing and publishing this administrative review and notice 
in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: September 19, 2014.
