Recommendation Appendix I The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Bhansali and Ambica will be the rate established in the final results of this review, except if the rate is de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1) (i.e., less than 0.50 percent), in which case the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not participating in this review, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent period for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 12.45 percent, the all-others rate established in the less-than-fair-value investigation.11 These requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 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 this review 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. The Department is issuing and publishing these results in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. 11 See Notice of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Stainless Steel Bar from India, 59 FR 66915, 66921 (December 28, 1994).

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Department) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp (shrimp) from Thailand. The review covers 163 producers/exporters of the subject merchandise.1 The Department selected two mandatory respondents for individual examination, Mayao 2 and Thai Union.3 The period of review AGENCY: 1 See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From India and Thailand: Notice of Initiation of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews, 80 FR 16634 (Mar. 30, 2015) (Initiation Notice). 2 Mayao consists of the following companies: A Foods 1991 Co., Limited and May Ao Foods Co., Ltd. 3 Thai Union consists of the following affiliated companies: Thai Union Frozen Product Co., Ltd., Thai Union Seafood Company Limited, Pakfood PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (POR) is February 1, 2014, through January 31, 2015. We preliminarily determine that sales to the United States have been made below normal value and, therefore, are subject to antidumping duties. Additionally, we preliminarily determine that certain companies for which we initiated a review did not have any shipments during the POR. If these preliminary results are adopted in the final results of this review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. We invite interested parties to comment on these preliminary results. DATES: Effective March 10, 2016. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dennis McClure or Alice Maldonado, AD/CVD Operations, Office II, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–5973 and (202) 482–4682, respectively. As explained in the memorandum from the Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement & Compliance, the Department has exercised its discretion to toll all administrative deadlines due to the recent closure of the Federal Government. All deadlines in this segment of the proceeding have been extended by four business days. The revised deadline for the preliminary results of this review is now March 4, 2016.4 SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to the order is certain frozen warmwater shrimp.5 The product is currently classified under the following Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) item numbers: 0306.17.00.03, 0306.17.00.06, 0306.17.00.09, 0306.17.00.12, 0306.17.00.15, Public Company Limited, Asia Pacific (Thailand) Co., Ltd., Chaophraya Cold Storage Co.

Ltd. 4 See Memorandum to the Record from Ron Lorentzen, Acting A/S for Enforcement & Compliance, regarding ‘‘Tolling of Administrative Deadlines As a Result of the Government Closure During Snowstorm Jonas,’’ dated January 27, 2016. 5 For a complete description of the scope of the Order, see ‘‘Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary Results of the Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Thailand, from Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, to Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance (Preliminary Decision Memorandum), dated concurrently with this notice. E:\FR\FM\10MRN1.SGM 10MRN1 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 47 / Thursday, March 10, 2016 / Notices 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. Although the HTSUS numbers are provided for convenience and for customs purposes, the written product description remains dispositive. Methodology The Department is conducting this review 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 of the Act. Normal value is calculated in accordance with section 773 of the Act. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the 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 it is available to all parties 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 at http://trade.gov/ enforcement/frn/index.html. The signed and the electronic versions of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical in content. A list of the topics discussed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is attached as the Appendix to this notice. Partial Rescission of Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the parties that requested a review withdraw the request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. This review was initiated on March 30, 2015.6 Two producers/exporters of shrimp in Thailand, Gallant Ocean (Thailand) Co., Ltd. (Gallant Ocean) and Southport Seafood Co., Ltd. (Southport), withdrew their requests for review on May 28, 2015, which is within the 90-day deadline.7 While no other party requested an administrative review of Southport, we received other requests for review of Gallant Ocean. Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), and consistent with our practice, we are rescinding this review only with respect to Southport. We are continuing the administrative review with respect to Gallant Ocean because we received properly-filed requests for a review of this company, and we did not receive timely withdrawal of review requests from all parties with respect to it. Preliminary Determination of No Shipments Among the companies under review, four companies properly filed statements reporting that they made no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR.8 Based on the certifications submitted by two of these companies and our analysis of CBP information, we preliminarily determine that the following companies had no reviewable transactions during the POR: (1) Gallant Ocean; and (2) Lucky Union Foods Co., Ltd. The Department finds that it is not appropriate to preliminarily rescind the review with respect to these companies but, rather, to complete the review with respect to these companies and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of this review.9 With respect to the two remaining companies, Marine Gold Products Ltd (Marine Gold)10 and Thai Union Manufacturing Company Limited (Thai Union Manufacturing), we preliminarily find that there is insufficient evidence on the record of this review to conclude that these companies made no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. Therefore, we are continuing to include both Marine Gold and Thai Union Manufacturing in this administrative review for purposes of the preliminary results. However, we requested additional information from CBP with respect to any potential entries made by these companies during the POR, and we will consider this information in making a final determination on this issue for purposes of the final results. Preliminary Results of the Review As a result of this review, we preliminarily determine that weightedaverage dumping margins exist for the respondents for the period February 1, 2014, through January 31, 2015, as follows: Dumping margin (percent) Producer/exporter A Foods 1991 Co., Limited/May Ao Foods Co., Ltd .....................................................................................................................

Assessment Rates Upon issuance of the final results, the Department shall determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.19 Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), where Mayao and Thai Union reported the entered value for of their U.S. sales, we calculated importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total aount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of the sales for which entered value was reported. Where Mayao and Thai Union have not reported entered value, we calculated the entered value in order to calculate the assessment rates. Where either the respondent’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c), or an importerspecific rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. 18 Id. 19 See PO 00000 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Frm 00021 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 For the companies which were not selected for individual review, we will assign an assessment rate based on the average 20 of the cash deposit rates calculated for the companies selected for mandatory review (i.e., Mayao and Thai Union), excluding any which are de minimis or determined entirely on adverse facts available. The final results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by the final results of this review and for future deposits of estimated duties, where applicable.21 We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this review. Cash Deposit Requirements The following deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for each specific company listed above will be that established in the final results of this review, except if the rate is less than 0.50 percent and, therefore, de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), in which case the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not participating in this review, the cash deposit will continue 20 This rate will be calculated as discussed in footnote 11, above. 21 See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act. E:\FR\FM\10MRN1.SGM 10MRN1 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 47 / Thursday, March 10, 2016 / Notices to be the company-specific rate published for the most recently completed segment; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, or the original less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent segment for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 5.34 percent, the all-others rate made effective by the Section 129 Determination.22 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) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review 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. We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: March 4, 2016. Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.

Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From Thailand; Preliminary 
Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, Rescission of 
Review, in Part, and Preliminary Determination of No Shipments; 2014-
2015

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Department) is conducting an 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen 
warmwater shrimp (shrimp) from Thailand. The review covers 163 
producers/exporters of the subject merchandise.\1\ The Department 
selected two mandatory respondents for individual examination, Mayao 
\2\ and Thai Union.\3\ The period of review (POR) is February 1, 2014, 
through January 31, 2015. We preliminarily determine that sales to the 
United States have been made below normal value and, therefore, are 
subject to antidumping duties. Additionally, we preliminarily determine 
that certain companies for which we initiated a review did not have any 
shipments during the POR. If these preliminary results are adopted in 
the final results of this review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries. We invite interested parties to comment on these preliminary 
results.

``Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary Results of the 
Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Certain 
Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Thailand, from Christian Marsh, Deputy 
Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations, to Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and 
Compliance (Preliminary Decision Memorandum), dated concurrently 
with this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Methodology

    The Department is conducting this review 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 of the Act. Normal value 
is calculated in accordance with section 773 of the Act.
    For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, see the 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 it is available to all 
parties 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 at http://trade.gov/enforcement/frn/index.html. The signed and the electronic 
versions of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical in 
content. A list of the topics discussed in the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum is attached as the Appendix to this notice.

Partial Rescission of Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if the parties that 
requested a review withdraw the request within 90 days of the date of 
publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. This 
review was initiated on March 30, 2015.\6\ Two producers/exporters of 
shrimp in Thailand, Gallant Ocean (Thailand) Co., Ltd. (Gallant Ocean) 
and Southport Seafood Co., Ltd. (Southport), withdrew their requests 
for review on May 28, 2015, which is within the 90-day deadline.\7\ 
While no other party requested an administrative review of Southport, 
we received other requests for review of Gallant Ocean. Therefore, in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), and consistent with our practice, 
we are rescinding this review only with respect to Southport. We are 
continuing the administrative review with respect to Gallant Ocean 
because we received properly-filed requests for a review of this 
company, and we did not receive timely withdrawal of review requests 
from all parties with respect to it.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Initiation Notice.
    \7\ See letters from Gallant Ocean and Southport, ``AD 
Administrative Review of Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from 
Thailand: Certification of No Shipments and Withdrawal of Request 
for Administrative Review,'' dated May 28, 2015.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    Among the companies under review, four companies properly filed 
statements reporting that they made no shipments of subject merchandise 
to the United States during the POR.\8\ Based on the certifications 
submitted by two of these companies and our analysis of CBP 
information, we preliminarily determine that the following companies 
had no reviewable transactions during the POR: (1) Gallant Ocean; and 
(2) Lucky Union Foods Co., Ltd. The Department finds that it is not 
appropriate to preliminarily rescind the review with respect to these 
companies but, rather, to complete the review with respect to these 
companies and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final 
results of this review.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ For a full explanation of the Department's analysis, see the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, Final Determination of No 
Shipments, and Partial Rescission of Review; 2012-2013, 79 FR 51306 
(August 28, 2014).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    With respect to the two remaining companies, Marine Gold Products 
Ltd (Marine Gold)\10\ and Thai Union Manufacturing Company Limited 
(Thai Union Manufacturing), we preliminarily find that there is 
insufficient evidence on the record of this review to conclude that 
these companies made no shipments of subject merchandise to the United 
States during the POR. Therefore, we are continuing to include both 
Marine Gold and Thai Union Manufacturing in this administrative review 
for purposes of the preliminary results. However, we requested 
additional information from CBP with respect to any potential entries 
made by these companies during the POR, and we will consider this 
information in making a final determination on this issue for purposes 
of the final results.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ Shrimp produced and exported by Marine Gold was excluded 
from the AD Thailand order effective February 1, 2012. See Certain 
Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From Thailand: Final Results of Antidumping 
Duty Administrative Review, Partial Rescission of Review, and 
Revocation of Order (in Part); 2011-2012, 78 FR at 42497, 42499 
(July 16, 2013) (2011-2012 Thai Shrimp). Accordingly, we are 
conducting this administrative review with respect to Marine Gold 
only for shrimp produced in Thailand where Marine Gold acted as 
either the producer or the exporter (but not both).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preliminary Results of the Review

    As a result of this review, we preliminarily determine that 
weighted-average dumping margins exist for the respondents for the 
period February 1, 2014, through January 31, 2015, as follows:

    The Department intends to issue the final results of this 
administrative review, including the results of its analysis raised in 
any written briefs, not later than 120 days after the publication date 
of this notice, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department shall determine, 
and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries 
covered by this review.\19\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \19\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), where Mayao and Thai Union 
reported the entered value for of their U.S. sales, we calculated 
importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio 
of the total aount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined 
sales to the total entered value of the sales for which entered value 
was reported. Where Mayao and Thai Union have not reported entered 
value, we calculated the entered value in order to calculate the 
assessment rates. Where either the respondent's weighted-average 
dumping margin is zero or de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 
351.106(c), or an importer-specific rate is zero or de minimis, we will 
instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to 
antidumping duties.
    For the companies which were not selected for individual review, we 
will assign an assessment rate based on the average \20\ of the cash 
deposit rates calculated for the companies selected for mandatory 
review (i.e., Mayao and Thai Union), excluding any which are de minimis 
or determined entirely on adverse facts available. The final results of 
this review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties 
on entries of merchandise covered by the final results of this review 
and for future deposits of estimated duties, where applicable.\21\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \20\ This rate will be calculated as discussed in footnote 11, 
above.
    \21\ See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the 
final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for each specific 
company listed above will be that established in the final results of 
this review, except if the rate is less than 0.50 percent and, 
therefore, de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), in 
which case the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for previously 
reviewed or investigated companies not participating in this review, 
the cash deposit will continue

[[Page 12701]]

to be the company-specific rate published for the most recently 
completed segment; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this 
review, or the original less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, but 
the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established 
for the most recent segment for the manufacturer of the merchandise; 
and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters 
will continue to be 5.34 percent, the all-others rate made effective by 
the Section 129 Determination.\22\ These deposit requirements, when 
imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

United States Antidumping Measure on Shrimp from Thailand: Notice of 
Determination under Section 129 of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act 
and Partial Revocation of the Antidumping Duty Order on Frozen 
Warmwater Shrimp from Thailand, 74 FR 5638 (January 30, 2009) 
(Section 129 Determination).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of 
their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this review 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.
    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: March 4, 2016.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
