Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on a review of the record and comments received from interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, and for the reasons explained in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, we have not changed the margins assigned in the Preliminary Results. Final Determination of No Shipments In the Preliminary Results, the Department 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 (collectively, the No Shipment Companies) had no reviewable transactions during the POR. Consistent with the Department’s refinement to its assessment practice in non-market economy (NME) cases, we completed the review with respect to the above-named companies.4 Based on the certifications submitted by these companies, we continue to find that they did not have any reviewable transactions during the POR. As noted in the ‘‘Assessment Rates’’ section below, the Department intends to issue appropriate instructions to CBP for the above-named companies based on the final results of the review. asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Vietnam-Wide Entity We noted in the Preliminary Results that a review was requested, but not rescinded, for Golden Quality Seafood Corporation (Golden Quality), Thuan An Production and Trading and Services Co., Ltd.

VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:02 Mar 24, 2017 Jkt 241001 Additionally, consistent with the Department’s practice to assign the Vietnam-wide rate to companies that do not submit separate rate certifications or applications and, thus, are not eligible for separate rate status, we are assigning the Vietnam-wide entity status to Anvifish Joint Stock Company (Anvifish) and Basa Joint Stock Company (Basaco). Partial Rescission of Administrative Review In accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3) and 19 CFR 351.401(f), and in accordance with our decision in Comment 4 of the Issues and Decision Memorandum, the Department is rescinding this review with respect to QVD Food Company Ltd., QVD Dong Thap Food Co., Ltd. (also known as Dong Thap), and Thuan Hung Co., Ltd. (also known as THUFICO), collectively (QVD). In accordance with Comment 5 of the Issues and Decision Memorandum, as of the Preliminary Results, we rescinded this review with respect to Bien Dong Seafood Co., Ltd., Hai Huong Seafood Joint Stock Company, Hung Vuong Seafood Joint Stock Company, Vinh Hoan Corporation, and Vinh Quang Fisheries Corporation. Final Results of the Review The weighted-average dumping margins for the final results of this administrative review are as follows: Weightedaverage dumping margins (dollars/ kilogram) 5 Exporter Cuu Long Fish Joint Stock Company ........................................ GODACO Seafood Joint Stock Company ................................. Green Farms Seafood Joint Stock Company ....................... NTSF Seafoods Joint Stock Company ................................. Vietnam-Wide Entity 6 ................. shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of this review. The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this administrative review. For assessment purposes, we calculated importer (or customer)specific assessment rates for merchandise subject to this review. We will continue to direct CBP to assess importer-specific assessment rates based on the resulting per-unit (i.e., per kilogram) rates by the weight in kilograms of each entry of the subject merchandise during the POR. Specifically, we calculated importer specific duty assessment rates on a perunit rate basis by dividing the total dumping margins (calculated as the difference between normal value and export price, or constructed export price) for each importer by the total sales quantity of subject merchandise sold to that importer during the POR. If an importer (or customer)-specific assessment rate is de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent), the Department will instruct CBP to assess that importer (or customer’s) entries of subject merchandise without regard to antidumping duties, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). The Department determines that the No Shipment Companies did not have any reviewable transactions during the POR. As a result, any suspended entries that entered under these exporters’ case numbers (i.e., at each exporter’s rate) will be liquidated at the Vietnam-wide rate.7 Cash Deposit Requirements 0.69 The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 0.69 publication of the final results of this administrative review for all shipments 0.69 of the subject merchandise entered, or 0.69 withdrawn from warehouse, for 2.39 consumption on or after the publication date, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the Assessment Rates exporters listed above, the cash deposit Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the rate will be the rate established in the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), the final results of review (except, if the rate Department will determine, and CBP is zero or de minimis, i.e., less than 0.5 percent, a zero cash deposit rate will be 5 In the third administrative review of this order, required for that company); (2) for the Department determined that it would calculate per-unit assessment and cash deposit rates for all previously investigated or reviewed future reviews.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on a review of the record and comments received from 
interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, and for the 
reasons explained in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, we have not 
changed the margins assigned in the Preliminary Results.

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, the Department 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 (collectively, the No 
Shipment Companies) had no reviewable transactions during the POR. 
Consistent with the Department's refinement to its assessment practice 
in non-market economy (NME) cases, we completed the review with respect 
to the above-named companies.\4\ Based on the certifications submitted 
by these companies, we continue to find that they did not have any 
reviewable transactions during the POR. As noted in the ``Assessment 
Rates'' section below, the Department intends to issue appropriate 
instructions to CBP for the above-named companies based on the final 
results of the review.

of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694, 65694-95 (October 24, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Vietnam-Wide Entity

    We noted in the Preliminary Results that a review was requested, 
but not rescinded, for Golden Quality Seafood Corporation (Golden 
Quality), Thuan An Production and Trading and Services Co., Ltd. 
(Tafishco), Viet Phu Foods and Fish Co., Ltd. (Viet Phu). Additionally, 
consistent with the Department's practice to assign the Vietnam-wide 
rate to companies that do not submit separate rate certifications or 
applications and, thus, are not eligible for separate rate status, we 
are assigning the Vietnam-wide entity status to Anvifish Joint Stock 
Company (Anvifish) and Basa Joint Stock Company (Basaco).

Partial Rescission of Administrative Review

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3) and 19 CFR 351.401(f), and 
in accordance with our decision in Comment 4 of the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum, the Department is rescinding this review with respect to 
QVD Food Company Ltd., QVD Dong Thap Food Co., Ltd. (also known as Dong 
Thap), and Thuan Hung Co., Ltd. (also known as THUFICO), collectively 
(QVD). In accordance with Comment 5 of the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum, as of the Preliminary Results, we rescinded this review 
with respect to Bien Dong Seafood Co., Ltd., Hai Huong Seafood Joint 
Stock Company, Hung Vuong Seafood Joint Stock Company, Vinh Hoan 
Corporation, and Vinh Quang Fisheries Corporation.

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), 
the Department will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties 
on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with 
the final results of this review. The Department intends to issue 
appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of this administrative review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ In the third administrative review of this order, the 
Department determined that it would calculate per-unit assessment 
and cash deposit rates for all future reviews. See Certain Frozen 
Fish Fillets from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Final Results 
of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Partial Rescission, 73 
FR 15479, 15481 (March 24, 2008).
    \6\ The Vietnam-wide entity includes mandatory respondents 
Anvifish, Basaco, Golden Quality, Tafishco, and Viet Phu, as well as 
Can Tho Import-Export Seafood Joint Stock Company (Caseamex).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For assessment purposes, we calculated importer (or customer)-
specific assessment rates for merchandise subject to this review. We 
will continue to direct CBP to assess importer-specific assessment 
rates based on the resulting per-unit (i.e., per kilogram) rates by the 
weight in kilograms of each entry of the subject merchandise during the 
POR. Specifically, we calculated importer specific duty assessment 
rates on a per-unit rate basis by dividing the total dumping margins 
(calculated as the difference between normal value and export price, or 
constructed export price) for each importer by the total sales quantity 
of subject merchandise sold to that importer during the POR. If an 
importer (or customer)-specific assessment rate is de minimis (i.e., 
less than 0.50 percent), the Department will instruct CBP to assess 
that importer (or customer's) entries of subject merchandise without 
regard to antidumping duties, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).
    The Department determines that the No Shipment Companies did not 
have any reviewable transactions during the POR. As a result, any 
suspended entries that entered under these exporters' case numbers 
(i.e., at each exporter's rate) will be liquidated at the Vietnam-wide 
rate.\7\

of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011); see also 
Preliminary Decision Memo at 4-5.

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 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the exporters 
listed above, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established in the 
final results of review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, 
i.e., less than 0.5 percent, a zero cash deposit rate will be required 
for that company); (2) for previously investigated or reviewed 
Vietnamese and non-Vietnamese exporters not listed above that have 
separate rates, the cash deposit rate will

[[Page 15183]]

continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most recent 
period; (3) for all Vietnamese exporters of subject merchandise which 
have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit 
rate will be the Vietnam-wide rate of $2.39 per kilogram; and (4) for 
all non-Vietnamese exporters of subject merchandise which have not 
received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate 
applicable to the Vietnamese exporters that supplied that non-
Vietnamese exporter. The deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers Regarding the Reimbursement of Duties

    This notice also serves as a final 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 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 doubled antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, which continues 
to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the 
proceeding. Timely written notification of the return or destruction of 
APO materials, or conversion to judicial protective order, is hereby 
requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO 
is a violation which is subject to sanction.
    We are issuing and publishing these administrative reviews and 
notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(l) and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: March 20, 2017.
Gary Taverman,
Associate Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Operations.
