FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background rmajette on DSK2TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES On September 7, 2016, Avanti Frozen requested that the Department conduct an expedited changed circumstances review, pursuant to section 751(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (the Act), 19 CFR 351.216(b), and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(3), to confirm that Avanti Frozen is the successor-in-interest to Avanti Feeds for purposes of determining antidumping duty cash deposits and liabilities. In its submission, Avanti Frozen explained that Avanti Feeds underwent a business reorganization and transferred its shrimp business to its subsidiary company, Avanti Frozen.1 On October 31, 2016, the Department initiated this changed circumstances review and published the notice of preliminary results, determining that Avanti Frozen is the successor-ininterest to Avanti Feeds.2 In the Initiation and Preliminary Results, we provided all interested parties with an opportunity to comment and request a public hearing regarding our preliminary finding that Avanti Frozen is the successor-in-interest to Avanti Feeds. We received no comments from interested parties 1 See Letter from Avanti Frozen entitled ‘‘Frozen Warmwater Shrimp form India: Request to Initiate a Successor-in-Interest Changed Circumstances Review,’’ dated September 7, 2016, at 2. 2 See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India: Initiation and Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review, 81 FR 75376 (October 31, 2016) (Initiation and Preliminary Results). VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:19 Dec 14, 2016 Jkt 241001 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: 0306.17.00.03, 0306.17.00.06, 0306.17.00.09, 0306.17.00.12, 0306.17.00.15, 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 customs purposes, the written product description remains dispositive. 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 Avanti Frozen is the successor-ininterest to Avanti Feeds. As a result of this determination, we find that Avanti Frozen should receive the cash deposit rate previously assigned to Avanti Feeds in the most recently-completed review of the antidumping duty order on shrimp from India.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 Avanti Frozen and entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of this notice in the Federal Register at 2.20 percent, which is the current antidumping duty cash-deposit rate for Avanti Feeds.5 This cash deposit requirement shall remain in effect until further notice. We are issuing this determination and publishing these final results and notice in accordance with sections 751(b)(1) and 777(i)(1) and (2) of the Act, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.216 and 351.221(c)(3). 3 For a complete description of the Scope of the Order, see Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From India: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; Final Determination of No Shipments; 2014–2015, 81 FR 62867 (September 13, 2016) (10th AR), and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum at ‘‘Scope.’’ 4 See, e.g., Final Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review: Certain Circular Welded Non-Alloy Steel Pipe and Tube from Mexico, 74 FR 41681, 41682 (August 18, 2009). 5 Avanti Feeds was assigned a 2.20 percent dumping margin in the 2014–2015 administrative review of the AD order on shrimp from India.
