China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review 
and New Shipper Reviews; 2013-2014

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an 
administrative review and new shipper reviews 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 reviews is September 1, 2013, through August 31, 2014. 
The Department preliminarily determines that China Kingdom (Beijing) 
Import & Export Co., Ltd. (China Kingdom), Deyan Aquatic Products and 
Food Co., Ltd. (Deyan Aquatic), Hubei Yuesheng Aquatic Products Co., 
Ltd. (Hubei Yuesheng), and Weishan Hongda Aquatic Food Co., Ltd 
(Weishan Hongda) have not made sales of subject merchandise in the 
United States at prices below normal value. With respect to Shanghai 
Ocean Flavor International Trading Co., Ltd. (Shanghai Ocean), see 
section below entitled ``Separate Rate for a Non-Selected Company.''

DATES: Effective Date: October 7, 2015.

Gziryan (Deyan Aquatic), Bryan Hansen (Hubei Yuesheng) or Catherine

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to the antidumping duty order is freshwater 
crawfish tail meat, which is currently classified in the Harmonized 
Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) under item numbers 
1605.40.10.10, 1605.40.10.90, 0306.19.00.10, and 0306.29.00.00. On 
February 10, 2012, the Department added HTSUS classification number 
0306.29.01.00 to the scope description pursuant to a request by U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection (CBP). While the HTSUS numbers are 
provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description 
is dispositive. A full description of the scope of the order is 
contained in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See the memorandum from Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant 
Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, to 
Ronald K. Lorentzen, Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and 
Compliance, ``Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary Results of the 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and New Shipper Reviews: 
Freshwater Crawfish Tail Meat from the People's Republic of China'' 
dated concurrently with and hereby adopted by this notice 
(Preliminary Decision Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 
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 (ACCESS). ACCESS is available to 
registered users at http://access.trade.gov and in the Central Records 
Unit, room B8024 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/index.html. The signed Preliminary Decision Memorandum and the 
electronic versions are identical in content.

Separate Rate for a Non-Selected Company

    Shanghai Ocean is the only exporter of crawfish tail meat from the 
PRC that demonstrated its eligibility for a separate rate which was not 
selected for individual examination in this administrative review. The 
calculated rates of the respondents selected for individual examination 
are all zero. We conclude that, in this case a reasonable method for 
determining the rate for the non-selected company, Shanghai Ocean, is 
to apply the average of the zero margins calculated for the two 
mandatory respondents in the administrative review, China Kingdom and 
Deyan Aquatic. For a detailed discussion, see Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum.

Preliminary Results of Reviews

    The Department determines that the following preliminary dumping 
margins exist for the administrative review covering the period 
September 1, 2013, through August 31, 2014:

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Shanghai Ocean Flavor International Trading Co., Ltd....            0.00
------------------------------------------------------------------------

     As a result of the new shipper reviews, the Department 
preliminarily determines that dumping margins of 0.00 percent exist for 
merchandise produced and exported by Hubei Yuesheng Aquatic Products 
Co., Ltd. and for merchandise produced and exported by Weishan Hongda 
Aquatic Food Co., Ltd. covering the period September 1, 2013, through 
August 31, 2014.

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 each 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 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.

    Pursuant to 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, 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 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 Yuesheng, a new shipper respondent, the 
Department established a combination cash deposit rate for this company

[[Page 60626]]

consistent with its practice as follows: (1) For subject merchandise 
produced and exported by Hubei Yuesheng, the cash deposit rate will be 
the rate established for Hubei Yuesheng in the final results of the 
NSR; (2) for subject merchandise exported by Hubei Yuesheng, but not 
produced by Hubei Yuesheng, the cash deposit rate will be the rate for 
the PRC-wide entity; and (3) for subject merchandise produced by Hubei 
Yuesheng but not exported by Hubei Yuesheng, the cash deposit rate will 
be the rate applicable to the exporter.
    With respect to Weishan Hongda, a 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 Weishan Hongda, the cash deposit rate will be 
the rate established for Weishan Hongda in the final results of the 
NSR; (2) for subject merchandise exported by Weishan Hongda, but not 
produced by Weishan Hongda, the cash deposit rate will be the rate for 
the PRC-wide entity; and (3) for subject merchandise produced by 
Weishan Hongda but not exported by Weishan Hongda, the cash deposit 
rate will be the rate applicable to the exporter.
    These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect

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 30, 2015.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
