Download as PDF 33466 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 102 / Thursday, May 26, 2016 / Notices light of the totality of the available data, i.e., including the non-fish factors of production (‘‘FOPs’’) surrogate values (‘‘SVs’’) following reconsideration of the whole live fish issues; and (5) the selection of the SVs for fish waste, fish oil, fresh broken meat and frozen broken fillets.7 On June 26, 2015, the Department filed the AR7 Remand with the Court.8 The Department maintained the selection of Bangladesh as the primary country. In addition, the Department selected different surrogate values for fish waste, fresh broken meat, and frozen broken fillets by-products, and capped the fish oil by-product surrogate value. In addition, we accounted for all calculation changes as a result of the original ministerial error allegations. As a result, there are calculation changes due to selecting different byproduct surrogate values. After accounting for all such changes and issues, the resulting antidumping margin for the only mandatory respondent, QVD, is $0.19 per kilogram. Because QVD’s margin changed, it would also become the margin for those companies not individually examined, but receiving a separate rate. On March 30, 2016, the Court entered judgments sustaining the AR7 Remand.9 Timken Notice In its decision in Timken, 893 F.2d at 341, as clarified by Diamond Sawblades, the CAFC held that, pursuant to section 516A(e) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), the Department must publish a notice of a court decision that is not ‘‘in harmony’’ with a Department determination and must suspend liquidation of entries pending a ‘‘conclusive’’ court decision. The Court’s March 30, 2016, judgment sustaining the AR7 Remand constitutes a final decision of the Court that is not in harmony with the Department’s AR7 Final Results. This notice is published in fulfillment of the publication requirement of Timken. Amended Final Results Because there is now a final court decision, the Department is amending the AR7 Final Results with respect to QVD and the Separate-Rate Applicants. The revised weighted-average dumping margins for these exporters during the period April 1, 2009, through March 31, 2010, as follows: Weighted average dumping margin (dollars per kilogram) Exporter name QVD Food Company Ltd 10 ...........................................................................................................................................................

Accordingly, the Department will continue the suspension of liquidation of the subject merchandise pending the expiration of the period of appeal or, if appealed, pending a final and conclusive court decision. In the event the Court’s ruling is not appealed or, if appealed, upheld by the CAFC, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess antidumping duties on unliquidated entries of subject merchandise exported by QVD and the Separate-Rate Applicants using the assessment rate calculated by the Department in the Remand and listed above. sradovich on DSK3TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Cash Deposit Requirements Unless the applicable cash deposit rates have been superseded by cash deposit rates calculated in an intervening administrative review of the AD order on frozen fish fillets from Vietnam, the Department will instruct 7 See Catfish Farmers of America et al. v.
