(collectively, the ‘‘Minh Phu Group’’). 3 Thuan Phuoc Seafoods and Trading Corporation (‘‘Thuan Phuoc’’). 4 Sao Ta Foods Joint Stock Company (‘‘Fimex VN’’). VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:04 Mar 06, 2015 Jkt 235001 The merchandise subject to the Order 5 is certain frozen warmwater shrimp. 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 for customs purposes, the written product description, available in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, remains dispositive.6 Methodology The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’). Constructed export prices and export prices were calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Because Vietnam is a nonmarket economy within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, NV was 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 the Enforcement and Compliance’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (‘‘ACCESS’’).7 ACCESS is available to registered users at http:// access.trade.gov and in the Central Records Unit, room 7046 of the main 5 See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From Brazil, India, the People’s Republic of China, Thailand, and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Amended Antidumping Duty Orders in Accordance with Final Court Decision, 76 FR 23277 (April 26, 2011) (‘‘Order’’). 6 For a complete description of the Scope of the Order, see Memorandum to Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, from Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, titled ‘‘Decision Memorandum for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam; 2013–2014,’’ dated concurrently with and adopted by this notice (‘‘Preliminary Decision Memorandum’’). 7 On November 24, 2014, Enforcement and Compliance changed the name of Enforcement and Compliance’s AD and CVD Centralized Electronic Service System (‘‘IA ACCESS’’) to AD and CVD Centralized Electronic Service System (‘‘ACCESS’’).

In addition, a complete version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly on the 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. Preliminary Determination of No Shipments Based on our analysis of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) information and information provided by a number of companies, we preliminarily determine that eight companies 8 did not have any reviewable transactions during the POR. In addition, the Department finds, consistent with its refinement to its assessment practice in non-market economy cases, that it is appropriate not to rescind the review in part in these circumstances, but to complete the review with respect to these eight companies and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of the review.9 For additional information regarding this determination, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Preliminary Results of Review The Department finds that 56 companies for which a review was requested have not established eligibility for a separate rate and, thus, they are considered to be part of the Vietnam-wide entity for these preliminary results.10 The Department’s change in policy regarding conditional review of the Vietnam-wide entity applies to this administrative review.11 Under this policy, the Vietnam-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 Vietnam-wide entity, the entity is not under review and the 8 These eight companies are: (1) Bien Dong Seafood Co., Ltd. (‘‘Bien Dong’’); (2) BIM Foods Joint Stock Company; (3) Cafatex Fishery Joint Stock Corporation; (4) Camau Seafood Processing and Service Joint-stock Corporation (‘‘CASES’’); (5) Camranh Seafoods Co., Ltd.; (6) Nhat Duc Co., Ltd.; (7) Phu Cuong Jostco Seafood Corporation; and (8) Seavina Joint Stock Company (‘‘Seavina’’). 9 See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011) (‘‘Assessment Notice’’); see also ‘‘Assessment Rates’’ section below. 10 See Appendix II for a full list of the 56 companies; see also Preliminary Decision Memorandum, at 9–10. 11 Antidumping Proceedings: Announcement of Change in Department Practice for Respondent Selection in Antidumping Duty Proceedings and Conditional Review of the Nonmarket Economy Entity in NME Antidumping Duty Proceedings, 78 FR 65963 (November 4, 2013).

An electronically filed document must be received successfully in its entirety in ACCESS, by 5 p.m. Eastern Time within 30 days after the date of publication of this notice.16 Requests should contain the party’s name, address, and telephone number, the number of participants, and a list of the issues to be discussed. If a request for a hearing is made, the Department 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. Parties should confirm by telephone the date, time, and location of the hearing. Interested parties are invited to comment on the preliminary results of this review. The Department intends to issue the final results of this administrative review, including the results of our analysis of issues raised in the written comments, within 120 days of publication of these preliminary results in the Federal Register. Assessment Rates Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.17 The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final results of this review.

Where either the respondent’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. For the final results, if we continue to treat the 56 companies identified above as part of the Vietnam-wide entity, we will instruct CBP to apply an ad valorem assessment rate of 25.76 percent to all entries of subject merchandise during the POR which were produced and/or exported by those companies. The Department recently 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 Vietnam-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 Vietnam-wide rate.19 The final results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by the final results of this review and for future deposits of estimated duties, where applicable.

These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers This notice also 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 this review period. 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.

Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From the Socialist Republic of 
Vietnam: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 
2013-2014

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: In response to requests from interested parties, the 
Department of Commerce (``Department'') is conducting the 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen 
warmwater shrimp from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (``Vietnam'') 
for the period of review February 1, 2013, through January 31, 2014. 
The Department selected three mandatory respondents based on a sampling 
methodology, using the information available at the time of 
selection.\1\ The Department preliminarily determines that sales of 
subject merchandise by the Minh Phu Group \2\ and Thuan Phuoc \3\ were 
made below normal value (``NV''). The Department preliminarily 
determines that sales of subject merchandise by Fimex VN \4\ were not 
made below NV. Interested parties are invited to comment on these 
preliminary results.

Administrative Review: Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the 
Socialist Republic of Vietnam; 2013-2014,'' dated concurrently with 
and adopted by this notice (``Preliminary Decision Memorandum'').
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Methodology

    The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''). 
Constructed export prices and export prices were calculated in 
accordance with section 772 of the Act. Because Vietnam is a nonmarket 
economy within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, NV was 
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 the Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (``ACCESS'').\7\ ACCESS is 
available to registered users at http://access.trade.gov and in the 
Central Records Unit, room 7046 of the main Department of Commerce 
building. In addition, a complete version of the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum can be accessed directly on the 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ On November 24, 2014, Enforcement and Compliance changed the 
name of Enforcement and Compliance's AD and CVD Centralized 
Electronic Service System (``IA ACCESS'') to AD and CVD Centralized 
Electronic Service System (``ACCESS''). The Web site location was 
changed from http://iaaccess.trade.gov to http://access.trade.gov. 
The Final Rule changing the references to the Regulations can be 
found at 79 FR 69046 (November 20, 2014).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    Based on our analysis of U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') information and information provided by a number of 
companies, we preliminarily determine that eight companies \8\ did not 
have any reviewable transactions during the POR. In addition, the 
Department finds, consistent with its refinement to its assessment 
practice in non-market economy cases, that it is appropriate not to 
rescind the review in part in these circumstances, but to complete the 
review with respect to these eight companies and issue appropriate 
instructions to CBP based on the final results of the review.\9\ For 
additional information regarding this determination, see the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ These eight companies are: (1) Bien Dong Seafood Co., Ltd. 
(``Bien Dong''); (2) BIM Foods Joint Stock Company; (3) Cafatex 
Fishery Joint Stock Corporation; (4) Camau Seafood Processing and 
Service Joint-stock Corporation (``CASES''); (5) Camranh Seafoods 
Co., Ltd.; (6) Nhat Duc Co., Ltd.; (7) Phu Cuong Jostco Seafood 
Corporation; and (8) Seavina Joint Stock Company (``Seavina'').
    \9\ See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment 
of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011) (``Assessment 
Notice''); see also ``Assessment Rates'' section below.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preliminary Results of Review

    The Department finds that 56 companies for which a review was 
requested have not established eligibility for a separate rate and, 
thus, they are considered to be part of the Vietnam-wide entity for 
these preliminary results.\10\ The Department's change in policy 
regarding conditional review of the Vietnam-wide entity applies to this 
administrative review.\11\ Under this policy, the Vietnam-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 Vietnam-wide entity, the entity is not under 
review and the

[[Page 12442]]

entity's rate is not subject to change. For companies for which a 
review was requested and that have established eligibility for a 
separate rate, the Department preliminarily determines that the 
following weighted-average dumping margins exist:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ See Appendix II for a full list of the 56 companies; see 
also Preliminary Decision Memorandum, at 9-10.
    \11\ Antidumping Proceedings: Announcement of Change in 
Department Practice for Respondent Selection in Antidumping Duty 
Proceedings and Conditional Review of the Nonmarket Economy Entity 
in NME Antidumping Duty Proceedings, 78 FR 65963 (November 4, 2013).
    \12\ Due to the issues we have had in the past with variations 
of exporter names related to this Order, we remind exporters that 
the names listed below are the exact names, including spelling and 
punctuation which the Department will provide to CBP and which CBP 
will use to assess POR entries and collect cash deposits.
    \13\ The Department previously collapsed the companies within 
the Minh Phu Group in the sixth administrative review. See Certain 
Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: 
Preliminary Results of Administrative Review, 77 FR 13547, 13549 
(March 7, 2012), unchanged in Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From 
the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Final Results and Final Partial 
Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 77 FR 55800 
(September 11, 2012). In this review, the Department reevaluated the 
collapsed entity based on a corporate structure and name change of 
one of the collapsed companies, Minh Phu Hau Giang Seafood Co., Ltd. 
See ``Memorandum to the File, through Catherine Bertrand, Program 
Manager, Office V, from Irene Gorelik, Senior Analyst, Office V, re; 
Collapsing Determination for the Minh Phu Seafood Corporation and 
its Affiliates, with Minh Phu Hau Giang Seafood Joint Stock 
Company,'' dated concurrently with this notice. In this memorandum, 
the Department found that Minh Phu Hau Giang Seafood Joint Stock 
Company is affiliated with the the Minh Phu Group group of 
companies, and that they comprise a single entity. Therefore, we 
will assign this rate to the companies in the single entity. The 
company name and trade names formerly used by Minh Phu Hau Giang 
Seafood Joint Stock Company have not been included above, for cash 
deposit purposes, based on the business license submitted on the 
record. However, the former names will be included for liquidation 
purposes at the conclusion of this review.

Disclosure and Public Comment

    The Department will disclose the calculations used in our analysis 
to parties in this review within five days of the date of publication 
of this notice. The Department intends to verify the information upon 
which we will rely for the final results. As such, the Department will 
establish the briefing schedule at a later time, and will notify 
parties of the schedule in accordance with 19 CFR 351.309. Parties who 
submit case briefs or rebuttal briefs are requested to submit with the 
argument: (1) A statement of the issue; (2) a brief summary of the 
argument; and (3) a table of authorities.\14\ Rebuttal briefs must be 
limited to issues raised in the case briefs.\15\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \14\ See 19 CFR 351.309(c) and (d).
    \15\ See 19 CFR 351.309(d)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 ACCESS. An electronically filed document 
must be received successfully in its entirety in ACCESS, by 5 p.m. 
Eastern Time within 30 days after the date of publication of this 
notice.\16\ Requests should contain the party's name, address, and 
telephone number, the number of participants, and a list of the issues 
to be discussed. If a request for a hearing is made, the Department 
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. Parties should confirm by telephone the date, time, and 
location of the hearing. Interested parties are invited to comment on 
the preliminary results of this review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \16\ See 19 CFR 351.310(c).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department intends to issue the final results of this 
administrative review, including the results of our analysis of issues 
raised in the written comments, within 120 days of publication of these 
preliminary results in the Federal Register.

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, 
and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries 
covered by this review.\17\ The Department intends to issue assessment 
instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final 
results of this review. For any individually examined respondent whose 
weighted average dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., is 0.50 
percent or more) in the final results of this review, the Department 
will calculate importer-specific assessment rates on the basis of the 
ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer's 
examined sales and the total entered value of sales, in accordance with 
19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).\18\ We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review when the 
importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the final results of 
this review is above de minimis. Where either the respondent's 
weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-
specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. 
For the final results, if we continue to treat the 56 companies 
identified above as part of the Vietnam-wide entity, we will instruct 
CBP to apply an ad valorem assessment rate of 25.76 percent to all 
entries of subject merchandise during the POR which were produced and/
or exported by those companies. The Department recently 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 Vietnam-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 Vietnam-wide rate.\19\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \17\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b).
    \18\ In these preliminary results, the Department applied the 
assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping 
Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and 
Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings; Final 
Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).
    \19\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Assessment 
Notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The final results of this review shall be the basis for the 
assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by 
the final results of this review and for future deposits of estimated 
duties, where applicable.

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 Vietnam 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 the companies 
listed above, which have a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be 
that established in the final results of this review (except, if the 
rate is zero or de minimis, then zero cash deposit will be required); 
(2) for previously investigated or reviewed Vietnam and non-Vietnam 
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 Vietnam exporters of 
subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a 
separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the existing rate for the 
Vietnam-wide entity of 25.76 percent; and (4) for all non-Vietnam 
exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own 
rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the Vietnam 
exporter that supplied that non-Vietnam exporter. These deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also 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 this review period. 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.
    This determination is issued and published in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4).
