The activity at the facility would involve the production of spun cotton and cotton/polyester yarns for export (no shipments for U.S. consumption would occur). Pursuant to 15 CFR 400.14(b), FTZ activity would be limited to the specific foreign-status materials and components and specific finished products described in the submitted notification (as described below) and subsequently authorized by the FTZ Board.

The sole foreign-origin material to be used in the export production is polyester staple fiber (duty rate: 4.3%). Customs duties also could possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign status production equipment or the foreign material scrapped or destroyed under U.S. Customs and Border Protection procedures.

SUMMARY: On September 12, 2014, the Department of Commerce (the ‘‘Department’’) published the Preliminary Results of the 2013–2014 administrative review on certain frozen warmwater shrimp (‘‘shrimp’’) from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’), covering the period of review (‘‘POR’’) from February 1, 2013, through January 31, 2014.1 We gave interested parties an opportunity to submit comments on the Preliminary Results, but none were received. Therefore, these final results are unchanged from the Preliminary Results, and we continue to find that Shantou Yuexing Enterprise Company (‘‘SYEC’’), and Zhanjiang Regal Integrated Marine Resources Co., Ltd. (‘‘Regal’’) did not have reviewable entries during this POR. Additionally, we continue to find that Rizhao Smart Foods Co., Ltd. (‘‘Smart Foods’’) is not eligible for a separate rate, and we will continue to treat it as part of the PRCwide entity.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On September 14, 2014, the Department published the Preliminary Results of this administrative review. SYEC, Smart Foods, and Regal 2 submitted ‘‘no shipment certifications’’ to the Department.3 In response to the Department’s query, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) did not provide any evidence that contradicted SYEC or Regal’s claims of no shipments. The Department received no comments from interested parties concerning the results of the CBP queries. Therefore, based on SYEC and Regal’s certifications and our analysis of CBP information, we preliminarily determined that SYEC and Regal did not have any reviewable entries during the POR.4 With regard to Smart Foods, we noted that because it was previously found to be part of the PRC-wide entity, and continues to be part of the PRCwide entity for this review, we were not making a determination regarding its no shipments certification.5 In the Preliminary Results we determined that 58 companies in total should be treated as part of the PRC-wide entity.6 We invited interested parties to comment on the Preliminary Results. We received no comments from interested parties. Scope of the Order The scope of the order includes certain frozen warmwater shrimp and prawns, whether wild-caught (ocean harvested) or farm-raised (produced by 2 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.

I. Abstract

    Title III of the Export Trading Company Act (hereinafter ``the 
Act'') of 1982 (Pub. L. 97-290, 15 U.S.C. 4001 et seq.), authorizes the 
Secretary of Commerce to issue, with the concurrence of the Attorney 
General, an Export Trade Certificate of Review to any person that 
establishes that its proposed export trade, export trade activities, 
and methods of operation meet the four standards found in Section 
303(a) of the Act, 15 U.S.C. 4001 et seq. An Export Trade Certificate 
of Review provides the certificate holder and its members with limited 
antitrust immunity for specified export-related activities. Application

related conduct meets the standards in Section 303(a) of the Act. The 
collection of information constitutes the essential basis of the

and Economic Analysis and the Office of the General Counsel. In the 
Department of Justice, analysis is conducted by the Antitrust Division.
    Title III was enacted to reduce uncertainty regarding the 
application of U.S. antitrust laws to export activities. An Export 
Trade Certificate of Review provides its holder and members named in 
the Certificate with (a) protection from government actions under state 
and federal antitrust laws for the export conduct specified in the 
Certificate, and (b) certain protection from private suits, by limiting 
liability in private actions to actual damages when the challenged 
activities are covered by an Export Trade Certificate of Review.
