The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final results of this review. Additionally, pursuant to a refinement to its assessment practice in 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 under that exporter’s case number (i.e., at that exporter’s rate) will be liquidated at the PRC-wide rate. For a full discussion of this practice, see NonMarket 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publication of the final results of this administrative review for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided for by section VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:43 Jan 04, 2016 Jkt 238001 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For TMI, which claimed no shipments, the cash deposit rate will remain unchanged from the rate assigned to TMI in the most recently completed review of the company; (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters who are not under review in this segment of the proceeding but who have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate (including TMM, which claimed no shipments, but has not been found to be separate from the PRC-wide entity), the cash deposit rate will be the PRC-wide rate of 141.49 percent; 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(s) that supplied that non-PRC 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 period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. This administrative review and notice are in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4). Dated: December 24, 2015.

United States, Court No. 14– PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 In the Final Results, the Department determined that Kam Kiu failed to respond to its request for information regarding the company’s quantity and value of imports of subject merchandise to the United States during the review period.6 The Department therefore found Kam Kiu to be uncooperative and determined that the application of facts available with an adverse inference was appropriate pursuant to sections 776(a)(2)(A) and (C) and section 776(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).7 The Department assigned to Kam Kiu a rate of 121.22 percent. This rate was based on the application of total adverse facts available (AFA) which the Department determined was corroborated to the extent practicable in accordance with section 776(c) of the Act.8 In Kam Kiu, the Court held that the Department must, to the extent practicable, corroborate the AFA rate assigned to Kam Kiu by either attempting to corroborate Kam Kiu’s ability to benefit simultaneously from the location-specific subsidy programs included in the AFA rate, or adjusting its methodology as applied to Kam Kiu and corroborate its findings under the new methodology.9 The Court found 00016; Slip Op. 15–21 (CIT March 20, 2015) (Kam Kiu). 4 See Timken Co. v.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On September 17, 2015, Thai Union Group, a producer/exporter of 
Thai shrimp covered by this order, changed its name from Thai Union 
Frozen to Thai Union Group. On October 5, 2015, Thai Union Group 
requested that the Department conduct an expedited changed 
circumstances review under section 751(b) of the Act, 19 CFR 
351.216(c), and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(3)(ii) to confirm that Thai Union 
Group is the successor-in-interest to Thai Union Frozen for purposes of 
determining antidumping duty cash deposits and liabilities. On November 
25, 2015, the Department initiated this changed circumstances review 
and published the notice of preliminary results, determining that Thai 
Union Group is the successor-in-interest to Thai Union Frozen.\2\ In 
the Initiation and Preliminary Results, we provided all interested 
parties with an opportunity to comment or request a public hearing 
regarding our preliminary finding that

Thai Union Group is the successor-in-interest to Thai Union Frozen. We 
received no comments or requests for a public hearing from interested

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to the order is certain frozen warmwater 
shrimp.\3\ The product is currently classified under the following 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) item numbers: 
0306.17.0003, 0306.17.0006, 0306.17.0009, 0306.17.0012, 0306.17.0015,

Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review

    For the reasons stated in the Initiation and Preliminary Results, 
and because we received no comments from interested parties to the 
contrary, the Department continues to find that Thai Union Group is the 
successor-in-interest to Thai Union Frozen. As a result of this 
determination, we find that Thai Union Group should receive the cash 
deposit rate previously assigned to Thai Union Frozen in the most 
recently completed review of the antidumping duty order on shrimp from 
Thailand.\4\ Consequently, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs 
and Border Protection to suspend liquidation of all shipments of 
subject merchandise produced or exported by Thai Union Group and 
entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the 
publication date of this notice in the Federal Register at 1.10 
percent, which is the current antidumping duty cash-deposit rate for 
the Thai Union group of companies, of which Thai Union Frozen (and now 
Thai Union Group) is a part.\5\ \6\ This cash deposit requirement shall 
remain in effect until further notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Circumstances Review: Certain Circular Welded Non-Alloy Steel Pipe 
and Tube from Mexico, 74 FR 41681, 41682 (August 18, 2009).

Seafood Co., Ltd., Pakfood Public Company Limited, Okeanos Co. Ltd., 
Okeanos Food Co., Ltd, Asia Pacific (Thailand) Co., Ltd., Chaophraya 
Cold Storage Co. Ltd., and Takzin Samut Co. Ltd. (collectively, 
``Thai Union'').
    \6\ Thai Union Frozen received a 1.10 percent dumping margin as 
part of Thai Union in the 2012-2013 administrative review of the AD 
order on shrimp from Thailand. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp 
From Thailand: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative

to the Final Results of the 2012-2013 Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review, 79 FR 62099 (October 16, 2014)). We note that 
Thai Union Frozen is also a respondent in the current 2014-2015 
administrative review of this antidumping duty order. See Certain 
Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India and Thailand: Notice of 
Initiation of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews, 80 FR 16634 
(March 30, 2015). Because we determined that Thai Union Group is the 
successor-in-interest to Thai Union Frozen, we will assign Thai 
Union Group an updated cash deposit rate based on the final results 
of that administrative review.

    We are issuing this determination and publishing these final 
results and notice in accordance with sections 751(b)(1) and 777(i)(1)
