SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On March 9, 2015, the Department published the Preliminary Results. On March 10, 2015, VASEP 6 filed surrogate value information rebutting certain surrogate values we applied in the Preliminary Results. Between April 20, 2015, and May 4, 2015, the Department conducted verification of Fimex VN and Thuan Phuoc. On June 5, 2015, the Department extended the time limit for these final results by 60 days. We gave interested parties an opportunity to comment on the Preliminary Results. On June 8, 2015, Petitioner 7 and VASEP submitted their case briefs. On June 13, 205, Petitioner, Domestic Processors,8 and VASEP filed their rebuttal briefs. Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to the order is certain frozen warmwater shrimp. The product is currently classified under the following Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States 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.

Final Determination of No Shipments In the Preliminary Results, we determined that 32 companies 11 (‘‘Separate Rate Respondents’’) in addition to Minh Phu Group, Fimex VN, and Thuan Phuoc met the criteria for separate rate status. We have not received any information since the issuance of the Preliminary Results that provides a basis for reconsidering this preliminary determination. Therefore, the Department continues to find that these companies meet the criteria for a separate rate for the final results. In the Preliminary Results, the Department determined the following companies did not have any reviewable transactions during the POR: (1) Bien Dong Seafood Co., Ltd.; (2) BIM Foods Joint Stock Company; (3) Cafatex Fishery Joint Stock Corporation; (4) Camau Seafood Processing and Service Joint-stock Corporation; (5) Camranh Seafoods Co., Ltd.; (6) Nhat Duc Co., Ltd.; (7) Phu Cuong Jostco Seafood Corporation; and (8) Seavina Joint Stock Company. As we have not received any information to contradict this determination, the Department determines that the above-named companies did not have any reviewable entries of subject merchandise during the POR, and will issue appropriate Changes Since the Preliminary Results The Department has made changes to a surrogate value and to the companyspecific margin calculation programs since the Preliminary Results. For detailed information, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum and the company-specific final results analysis memoranda. Separate Rates Rate for Non-Selected Companies For the final results, the calculated rates for the mandatory respondents have changed from the Preliminary Results. Therefore, we recalculated the sample rate assigned to the Separate Rate Respondents for the final results of this review, and we continue to determine that a ‘‘reasonable method for determining the weighted-average dumping margins for the non-selected respondents in this review is to average the weighted-average dumping margins calculated for the mandatory respondents,’’ as noted in the Preliminary Results.12 Final Results of Review In the Preliminary Results, we found that 56 companies for which a review was requested have not established eligibility for a separate rate and, thus, we considered them to be part of the Vietnam-wide entity.13 The Department’s change in policy regarding conditional review of the Vietnam-wide entity applies to this administrative review.14 Under this policy, the Vietnam-wide entity will not be under review unless a party specifically requests, or the Department selfinitiates, a review of the entity. Because no party requested a review of the Vietnam-wide entity, the entity is not under review and the 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 determines that the following weightedaverage dumping margins exist: Weightedaverage margin (percent) mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Exporter 15 Minh Phu Group: 16 Minh Phu Seafood Corp., aka Minh Phu Seafood Corporation, aka Minh Phu Seafood Pte, aka Minh Phat Seafood Co., Ltd., aka Minh Qui Seafood Co., Ltd., aka Minh Qui Seafood, aka Minh Phu Hau Giang Seafood Joint Stock Company ...............

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 the Preliminary Results, 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 March 2, 2015. We have made no changes since the Preliminary Results with respect to Minh Phu Hau Giang Seafood Joint Stock Company being part of the Minh Phu Group single entity. Thus, for the final results, we continue to find that Minh Phu Hau Giang Seafood Joint Stock Company is affiliated with the Minh Phu Group group of companies, and that they comprise a single entity, to which we will assign a single rate.

Assessment Rates Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’) and 19 CFR 351.212(b), the Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of this review. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final results of review. For any individually examined respondent whose weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent), 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.

Where either a respondent’s weighted average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or 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.18 Additionally, consistent with its assessment practice in non-market economy (NME) cases, if the Department continues to determine that an exporter under review had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that entered 17 See 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 information submitted on the record.

These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Reimbursement of Duties This notice also serves as a 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 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 double antidumping duties. Administrative Protective Orders This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (‘‘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.

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

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: On March 9, 2015, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
published in the Federal Register the Preliminary Results of the ninth 
administrative review of the antidumping duty Order \1\ on certain 
warmwater shrimp from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam 
(``Vietnam'').\2\ Based upon our analysis of the comments and 
information received, we determine that Minh Phu Group \3\ and Thuan 
Phuoc \4\ sold subject merchandise at less than normal value (``NV'') 
during the period of review (``POR''), February 1, 2013, through 
January 31, 2014. The Department determines that sales of subject 
merchandise by Fimex VN \5\ were not made below NV.

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, the Department determined the following 
companies did not have any reviewable transactions during the POR: (1) 
Bien Dong Seafood Co., Ltd.; (2) BIM Foods Joint Stock Company; (3) 
Cafatex Fishery Joint Stock Corporation; (4) Camau Seafood Processing 
and Service Joint-stock Corporation; (5) Camranh Seafoods Co., Ltd.; 
(6) Nhat Duc Co., Ltd.; (7) Phu Cuong Jostco Seafood Corporation; and 
(8) Seavina Joint Stock Company. As we have not received any 
information to contradict this determination, the Department determines 
that the above-named companies did not have any reviewable entries of 
subject merchandise during the POR, and will issue appropriate 
instructions that are consistent with our ``automatic assessment'' 
clarification, for these final results.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    The Department has made changes to a surrogate value and to the 
company-specific margin calculation programs since the Preliminary 
Results. For detailed information, see the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum and the company-specific final results analysis memoranda.

Separate Rates

    In the Preliminary Results, we determined that 32 companies \11\ 
(``Separate Rate Respondents'') in addition to Minh Phu Group, Fimex 
VN, and Thuan Phuoc met the criteria for separate rate status. We have 
not received any information since the issuance of the Preliminary 
Results that provides a basis for reconsidering this preliminary 
determination. Therefore, the Department continues to find that these 
companies meet the criteria for a separate rate for the final results.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Appendix I.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rate for Non-Selected Companies

    For the final results, the calculated rates for the mandatory 
respondents have changed from the Preliminary Results. Therefore, we 
recalculated the sample rate assigned to the Separate Rate Respondents 
for the final results of this review, and we continue to determine that 
a ``reasonable method for determining the weighted-average dumping 
margins for the non-selected respondents in this review is to average 
the weighted-average dumping margins calculated for the mandatory 
respondents,'' as noted in the Preliminary Results.\12\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ See Preliminary Results, and accompanying Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Results of Review

    In the Preliminary Results, we found that 56 companies for which a 
review was requested have not established eligibility for a separate 
rate and, thus, we considered them to be part of the Vietnam-wide 
entity.\13\ The Department's change in policy regarding conditional 
review of the Vietnam-wide entity applies to this administrative 
review.\14\ 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 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 determines that the following weighted-
average dumping margins exist:

Memorandum, at 9-10.

Disclosure and Public Comment

    We will disclose the calculations performed within five days of the 
date of publication of this notice to parties in this proceeding in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \15\ 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.
    \16\ 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 the Preliminary Results, 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 March 2, 2015. We have made no 
changes since the Preliminary Results with respect to Minh Phu Hau 
Giang Seafood Joint Stock Company being part of the Minh Phu Group 
single entity. Thus, for the final results, we continue to find that 
Minh Phu Hau Giang Seafood Joint Stock Company is affiliated with 
the Minh Phu Group group of companies, and that they comprise a 
single entity, to which we will assign a single rate. 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 information submitted on the record. However, 
the former names will be included for liquidation purposes.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (``the Act'') and 19 CFR 351.212(b), the Department will 
determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') shall 
assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject 
merchandise in accordance with the final results of this review. The 
Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days 
after the date of publication of these final results of review.
    For any individually examined respondent whose weighted-average 
dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent), 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. Where we do not 
have entered values for all U.S. sales to a particular importer/
customer, we calculate a per-unit assessment rate by aggregating the 
antidumping duties due for all U.S. sales to that importer (or 
customer) and dividing this amount by the total quantity sold to that 
importer (or customer).\17\ To determine whether the duty assessment 
rates are de minimis, in accordance with the requirement set forth in 
19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we calculated importer- (or customer-) specific 
ad valorem ratios based on the estimated entered value. Where either a 
respondent's weighted average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or 
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.\18\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \17\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
    \18\ See 19 CFR 352.106(c)(2); Antidumping Proceeding: 
Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment 
Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 
8101, 8103 (February 14, 2012) (``Final Modification for Reviews'').
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Additionally, consistent with its assessment practice in non-market 
economy (NME) cases, if the Department continues to determine that an 
exporter under review had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any 
suspended entries that entered

[[Page 55331]]

under that exporter's case number (i.e., at that exporter's rate) will 
be liquidated at the NME-wide rate.\19\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \19\ For a full discussion of this practice, 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 
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 that for the Vietnam-wide 
entity; 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.

Reimbursement of Duties

    This notice also serves as a 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 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 double antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (``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 of the return or 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.
    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).

    Dated: September 8, 2015.
