Preliminary Determination of No Reviewable Transactions The Department has preliminarily determined that Ben Tre Aquaproduct Import and Export Joint Stock Company, CADOVIMEX II Seafood Import Export and Processing Joint Stock Company, and Hoang Long Seafood Processing Company Limited had no reviewable transactions during the POR. Consistent with our practice in non-market economy (‘‘NME’’) cases, we will not to rescind the review, in part, in this circumstance, but rather, complete the review with respect to these companies and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of the review.9 Methodology The Department is conducting this review in accordance with sections 751(a)(1)(B) and 751(a)(2)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’). Constructed export prices and export prices have been calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Because Vietnam is an NME within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, NV has been calculated in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act.

The Department intends to issue the final results of this administrative review, which will include the results of our analysis of all issues raised in the case briefs, within 120 days of publication of these preliminary results in the Federal Register, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES Assessment Rates Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.15 The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final results of this review. For any individually examined respondent whose weighted average dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent) in the final results of this review, the Department will calculate importer-specific assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales to the total entered value of sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Where an importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem rate is greater than de minimis, the Department will instruct CBP to collect the appropriate duties at the time of liquidation.16 Where either a respondent’s weighted average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem is zero or de minimis, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.17 Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this review for shipments of the subject merchandise from Vietnam entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided by sections 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 this review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, then zero cash deposit will be required); (2) for previously 15 See 19 CFR 351.212(b). 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 17 See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). 16 See VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:47 Sep 16, 2016 Jkt 238001 investigated or reviewed Vietnam and non-Vietnam 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 Vietnam 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 Vietnamwide entity; and (4) for all non-Vietnam exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the Vietnam exporter that supplied that non-Vietnam 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 the POR. 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.

Vietnam: Preliminary Results and Partial Rescission of the Antidumping

these preliminary results are adopted in the final results, the 
Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') 
to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR. Interested parties are invited to comment 
on these preliminary results.

DATES: Effective September 19, 2016.

January 4, 2016 we received timely withdrawal of review requests for 62 
companies from Petitioner,\5\ Bien Dong Seafood Co., Ltd (``Bien 
Dong''), and Vinh Hoan Corporation (``Vinh Hoan'').\6\ Of these 62 
companies, 38 do not have any review request outstanding. Therefore, in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department is rescinding this 
review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen fish fillets 
from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam with respect to these 38

Preliminary Determination of No Reviewable Transactions

    The Department has preliminarily determined that Ben Tre 
Aquaproduct Import and Export Joint Stock Company, CADOVIMEX II Seafood 
Import Export and Processing Joint Stock Company, and Hoang Long 
Seafood Processing Company Limited had no reviewable transactions 
during the POR. Consistent with our practice in non-market economy 
(``NME'') cases, we will not to rescind the review, in part, in this 
circumstance, but rather, complete the review with respect to these 
companies and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final 
results of the review.\9\

Methodology

    The Department is conducting this review in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1)(B) and 751(a)(2)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (``the Act''). Constructed export prices and export prices have 
been calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Because 
Vietnam is an NME within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, NV 
has been calculated in accordance with section 773(c) 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 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 on the 
internet at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. The signed Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum are identical in content.

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, 
and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries 
covered by this review.\15\ The Department intends to issue assessment 
instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final

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

    \15\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For any individually examined respondent whose weighted average 
dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent) in the final 
results of this review, the Department will calculate importer-specific 
assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of 
dumping calculated for the importer's examined sales to the total 
entered value of sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Where 
an importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem rate is greater than de 
minimis, the Department will instruct CBP to collect the appropriate 
duties at the time of liquidation.\16\ Where either a respondent's 
weighted average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer- 
(or customer-) specific ad valorem is zero or de minimis, the 
Department will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without 
regard to antidumping duties.\17\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \16\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
    \17\ See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this review for shipments of the 
subject merchandise from Vietnam entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided by 
sections 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 this review (except, if the rate is 
zero or de minimis, then zero cash deposit will be required); (2) for 
previously investigated or reviewed Vietnam and non-Vietnam 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 Vietnam 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 Vietnam-wide entity; and (4) 
for all non-Vietnam exporters of subject merchandise which have not 
received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate 
applicable to the Vietnam exporter that supplied that non-Vietnam 
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 the POR. 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.
    This preliminary determination is issued and published in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: September 6, 2016.
Christian Marsh,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
