to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the

from Hai Huong Seafood Joint Stock Company (``HHFISH'').\2\ HHFISH 
certified that it is a producer and exporter of the subject merchandise 
and that it exported, or sold for export, subject merchandise to the 
United States.\3\

Initiation of New Shipper Review

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.214(d)(1), and based on the evidence provided by HHFISH, we find 
that the request submitted by HHFISH meets the requirements for 
initiation of the NSR for shipments of fish fillets from Vietnam 
produced and exported by HHFISH.\9\ The POR is August 1, 2014, through 
January 31, 2015.\10\ Absent a determination that the case is 
extraordinarily complicated, the Department intends to issue the 
preliminary results of this NSR within 180 days from the date of 
initiation and the final results within 270 days from the date of 
initiation.\11\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See Memorandum to the File from Alexander Montoro, 
International Trade Compliance Analyst, ``Initiation of Antidumping 
Duty New Shipper Review: Certain Frozen Fish Fillets from the 
Socialist Republic of Vietnam (A-552-801),'' dated concurrently with 
and hereby adopted by this notice.
    \10\ See 19 CFR 351.214(g)(1)(i)(B).
    \11\ See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In cases involving non-market economy countries, the Department 
requires a company seeking to establish eligibility for an AD rate 
separate from the country-wide rate to provide evidence of de jure and 
de facto absence of government control over the company's export 
activities. Accordingly, we will issue a questionnaire to HHFISH that 
will include a section requesting information with regard to HHFISH's 
export activities for separate rate purposes. The review of HHFISH will 
proceed if the response provides sufficient indication that it is not 
subject to either de jure and de facto government control with respect 
to its exports of fish fillets.
    We will instruct CBP to allow, at the option of the importer, the 
posting, until the completion of the review, of a bond or security in 
lieu of a cash deposit for each entry of the subject merchandise from 
the requesting company in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of 
the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(e). Because HHFISH certified that it both 
produced and exported the subject merchandise, the sale of which is the 
basis for the NSR request, we will instruct CBP to permit the use of a 
bond only for subject merchandise which HHFISH both produced and 
exported.
    Interested parties requiring access to proprietary information in 
this NSR should submit applications for disclosure under administrative 
protective order, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305 and 19 CFR 351.306.
    This initiation and notice are published in accordance with section 
751(a)(2)(B) of the Act, as well as 19 CFR 351.214 and 
351.221(c)(1)(i).
