Period of Review

    The period of review (POR) for this NSR is September 1, 2014, 
through August 31, 2015.

Initiation of New Shipper Review

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.214(d)(1), the Department finds that the request from Hubei 
Qianjiang meets the threshold requirements for initiation of a NSR for 
shipments of freshwater crawfish tail meat from the PRC produced and 
exported by Hubei Qianjiang.\8\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ See the memorandum to the file entitled ``Freshwater 
crawfish tail meat from the People's Republic of China: Initiation 
Checklist for Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review of Hubei Qianjiang 
Huashan Aquatic Food and Product Co., Ltd.'' dated concurrently with 
this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Unless extended, the Department intends to issue the preliminary 
results of this NSR no later than 180 days from the date of initiation 
and final results of the review no later than 90 days after the date 
the preliminary results are issued.\9\ It is the Department's usual 
practice, in cases involving non-market economy countries, to require 
that a company seeking to establish eligibility for an antidumping duty 
rate separate from the country-wide rate 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 Hubei 
Qianjiang which will include a section requesting information 
concerning its eligibility for a separate rate. The NSR of Hubei 
Qianjiang will be rescinded if the Department determines that Hubei 
Qianjiang has not demonstrated that it is eligible for a separate rate.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 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 Hubei Qianjiang in accordance with 
section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(e). Because 
Hubei Qianjiang certified that it produced and exported subject 
merchandise, the sale of which is the basis for the request for a NSR, 
we will apply the bonding privilege to Hubei Qianjiang only for subject 
merchandise which was produced and exported by Hubei Qianjiang.
    To assist in its analysis of the bona fides of Hubei Qianjiang's 
sales, upon initiation of this NSR, the Department will require Hubei 
Qianjiang to submit on an ongoing basis complete transaction 
information concerning any sales of subject merchandise to the United 
States that were made subsequent to the POR.
    Interested parties requiring access to proprietary information in 
the NSR should submit applications for disclosure under administrative 
protective order in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305 and 351.306.
