SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an administrative review and new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on freshwater crawfish tail meat from the People’s Republic of China (PRC). The period of review (POR) for the administrative review and new shipper review is September 1, 2012, through August 31, 2013. The Department preliminarily determines that Hubei Nature Agriculture Industry Co., Ltd. (Hubei Nature, the new shipper), and Xiping Opeck Food Co., Ltd. (Xiping Opeck) have not made sales of subject merchandise in the United States at prices below normal value. DATES: Effective Date: October 6, 2014.

Export Price is calculated in accordance with section 772(c) of the Act. Because the PRC is a non-market economy (NME) within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, normal value has been calculated in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see 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).

Rebuttals briefs, limited to issues raised in case briefs, may be filed no later than five days after the time limit for filing the case briefs, as specified by 19 CFR 351.309(d). 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 by the Department’s IA ACCESS by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time within 30 days after the date of publication of this notice.4 Hearing requests should contain (1) the party’s name, address, and telephone number; (2) the number of participants; and (3) a list of issues to be discussed. Oral presentations will be limited to issues raised in the briefs. If a request for a hearing is made, we 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.5 Parties should confirm by telephone or email the date, time, and location of the hearing. Unless the deadline is extended pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act, the Department will issue the final results of these reviews, including the results of its analysis of issues raised by parties in their comments, within 120 days after the publication of these preliminary results, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h). Assessment Rates Upon issuing the final results, the Department will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by these reviews.6 If a respondent’s weighted average dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent) in the final results of these reviews, the Department 2 See 19 CFR 351.224(b). 19 CFR 351.309(c). 4 See 19 CFR 351.310(c). 5 Id. 6 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 3 See PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 60135 will calculate an importer-specific assessment rate on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales and, where possible, the total entered value of sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). In these preliminary results, the Department applied the assessment rate calculation method adopted in the Final Modification for Reviews, i.e., on the basis of monthly average-to-average comparisons using only the transactions associated with the importer with offsets being provided for non-dumped comparisons.7 Where an importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.8 Pursuant to a refinement in the Department’s assessment practice in NME cases,9 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. We intend to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of these reviews. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of these reviews 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 section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the companies listed above that have a separate rate, with the exception of Hubei Nature (see below), the cash deposit rate will be that established in the final results of these reviews (except if the rate is zero or de minimis, i.e., less than 0.5 percent, then no cash deposit will be required); (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC 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 PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate 7 See Antidumping Proceeding: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012) (Final Modification for Reviews). 8 See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). 9 For a full discussion of this practice, see NonMarket Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011). E:\FR\FM\06OCN1.SGM 06OCN1 60136 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 193 / Monday, October 6, 2014 / Notices will be that for the PRC-wide entity; and (4) 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. With respect to Hubei Nature, the new shipper respondent, the Department established a combination cash deposit rate for this company consistent with its practice as follows: (1) For subject merchandise produced and exported by Hubei Nature, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for Hubei Nature in the final results of the NSR; (2) for subject merchandise exported by Hubei Nature, but not produced by Hubei Nature, the cash deposit rate will be the rate for the PRC-wide entity; and (3) for subject merchandise produced by Hubei Nature but not exported by Hubei Nature, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers This notice 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 these PORs. 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. We are issuing and publishing the preliminary results of these reviews in accordance with sections 751(a)(1), 751(a)(2)(B)(iv), 751(a)(3), 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h), 351.214 and 351.221(b)(4).

Methodology

    The Department conducted these reviews 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(c) of the Act. Because the

of the Act, normal value has been calculated in accordance with section 
773(c) of the Act.
    For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, see 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

    Unless the deadline is extended pursuant to section 
751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act, the Department will issue the final 
results of these reviews, including the results of its analysis of 
issues raised by parties in their comments, within 120 days after the

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuing the final results, the Department will determine, and 
CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered 
by these reviews.\6\ If a respondent's weighted average dumping margin 
is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent) in the final results of these 
reviews, the Department will calculate an importer-specific assessment 
rate on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of dumping 
calculated for the importer's examined sales and, where possible, the 
total entered value of sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 
In these preliminary results, the Department applied the assessment 
rate calculation method adopted in the Final Modification for Reviews, 
i.e., on the basis of monthly average-to-average comparisons using only 
the transactions associated with the importer with offsets being 
provided for non-dumped comparisons.\7\ Where an importer- (or 
customer-) specific ad valorem rate is zero or de minimis, we will 
instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to 
antidumping duties.\8\

    \7\ See Antidumping Proceeding: Calculation of the Weighted-
Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012) 
(Final Modification for Reviews).
    \8\ See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to a refinement in the Department's assessment practice in 
NME cases,\9\ 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. We intend to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 
days after the date of publication of the final results of these 
reviews.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of these reviews 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 
section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the companies listed above 
that have a separate rate, with the exception of Hubei Nature (see 
below), the cash deposit rate will be that established in the final 
results of these reviews (except if the rate is zero or de minimis, 
i.e., less than 0.5 percent, then no cash deposit will be required); 
(2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC 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 PRC exporters of subject 
merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, 
the cash deposit rate

[[Page 60136]]

will be that for the PRC-wide entity; and (4) 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.
    With respect to Hubei Nature, the new shipper respondent, the 
Department established a combination cash deposit rate for this company 
consistent with its practice as follows: (1) For subject merchandise 
produced and exported by Hubei Nature, the cash deposit rate will be 
the rate established for Hubei Nature in the final results of the NSR; 
(2) for subject merchandise exported by Hubei Nature, but not produced 
by Hubei Nature, the cash deposit rate will be the rate for the PRC-
wide entity; and (3) for subject merchandise produced by Hubei Nature 
but not exported by Hubei Nature, the cash deposit rate will be the 
rate applicable to the exporter.
    These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect 
until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice 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 these PORs. 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.
    We are issuing and publishing the preliminary results of these 
reviews in accordance with sections 751(a)(1), 751(a)(2)(B)(iv), 
751(a)(3), 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h), 351.214 and 
351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: September 29, 2014.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
