Therefore, based on the claims of no shipments by Lamina y Placa and Mueller, and because the record contains no information to the contrary, we continue to determine for these final results that Lamina y Placa and Mueller had no shipments of subject merchandise and, therefore, no reviewable transactions during the POR. As noted in the ‘‘Assessment Rates’’ section, below, the Department intends to issue appropriate instructions to CBP for Lamina y Placa and Mueller. Assessment Rates Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.212(b), the 3.53 Department has determined, and CBP 3.53 shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject Consistent with the Preliminary merchandise in accordance with the Results, we calculated a weightedfinal results of this review.

Notification to Importers This notice serves as a final 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 doubled antidumping duties. 13 For a full discussion of this clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). 14 See Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Circular Welded Non-Alloy Steel Pipe from Mexico, 57 FR 42953 (September 17, 1992).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On April 10, 2017, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published in the Federal Register notice of its initiation of the 2016–2017 administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from India.1 The period of review is February 1, 2016, through January 31, 2017. Subsequent to the publication of the initiation of this segment of the proceeding in the Federal Register, we identified inadvertent errors in the Initiation Notice:. • First, the Department omitted from the Initiation Notice the following companies for which a review was requested: MTR Foods; Royale Marine Impex Pvt. Ltd.; and Sagar Foods.2 • Second, we initiated the review for Hindustan Lever, Ltd., a company for which no review was requested.3 • Third, we initiated the review on duplicate companies.4 • Finally, we made typographical errors in the name of several companies.5 The Department is hereby correcting the Initiation Notice to address these errors. This correction to the notice of initiation of administrative review is issued and published in accordance 1 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 82 FR 17188 (April 10, 2017) (Initiation Notice). 2 Because the Department received timely review requests for these companies, we now correct the Initiation Notice to initiate reviews for them. 3 The Department did not receive a review request for this company; therefore, it should not have been included in the Initiation Notice. As a result, we now correct the Initiation Notice to remove this company name. 4 These companies are as follows: Edhayam Frozen Foods Private Limited; Kadalkanny Frozen Foods; Kader Exports Private Limited; Kader Investment and Trading Company Private Limited; Kay Kay Exports (Kay Kay Foods); Liberty Frozen Foods Private Limited; Liberty Oil Mills Ltd.; Nila Sea Foods Exports; Satya Seafoods Private Limited; Universal Cold Storage Private Limited; and Usha Seafoods. These companies were either: (1) found in a previous segment of this proceeding to be part of a collapsed entity (i.e., treated as a single entity for purposes of calculating antidumping duty rates); For (2) considered to be a name variation (i.e., ‘‘also known as’’) of another company for which the Department also received a review request. Therefore, we have removed the duplicated instance of the names of these companies. 5 The following names involved typographical errors: Exporter Coreline Exports Falcon Marine Exports Limited/K.R. Enterprises, Sprint Exports Pvt. Ltd. Sri Sakkthi Cold Storage, and Amarsagar Seafoods Exports Private Limited. The correct individual company names are Exporter Coreline Exports, Falcon Marine Exports Limited/K.R. Enterprises, Sprint Exports Pvt. Ltd., Sri Sakkthi Cold Storage, and Amarsagar Seafoods Private Limited. E:\FR\FM\13JNN1.SGM 13JNN1

    Consistent with the Preliminary Results, we calculated a weighted-
average margin for the companies not selected for individual 
examination (i.e., Conduit, S.A. de C.V. (Conduit); Productos Laminados 
de Monterrey, S.A. de C.V. (Prolamsa); and Ternium Mexico, S.A. de C.V. 
(Ternium)) using the publicly available, ranged total U.S. sales values 
of the selected respondents, which is 3.53 percent.\10\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ We continue for these final results to treat Regiomontana de 
Perfiles y Tubos, S.A. de C.V., and PYTCO, S.A. de C.V., as a single 
entity. See the Issues and Decisions Memorandum.
    \10\ For Maquilacero, we used the publicly ranged sales value of 
$3,500,000; see Maquilacero Section A Response (Public Version) at 
Exhibit A-1. For Regiopytsa, we used the publicly ranged sales value 
of $12,100,259; see Maquilacero Section A Response (Public Version) 
at Exhibit A-1.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Disclosure

    The Department intends to disclose the calculations performed for 
these final results of review within five days of the date of 
publication of this notice in the Federal Register, in accordance with 
19 CFR 351.224(b).

Final Determination of No Shipments

    Lamina y Placa and Mueller reported that they made no sales of 
subject merchandise during the POR.\11\ On November 28, 2016, we issued 
a no-shipment inquiry to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to 
confirm that there were no entries of subject merchandise by either 
Lamina y Placa or Mueller during the POR.\12\ We received no 
information from CBP that contradicted Lamina y Placa and Mueller's 
claims of no shipments, and we received no comments from interested 
parties with respect to the Department's preliminary determination of 
no shipments for Lamina y Placa and Mueller. Therefore, based on the 
claims of no shipments by Lamina y Placa and Mueller, and because the 
record contains no information to the contrary, we continue to 
determine for these final results that Lamina y Placa and Mueller had 
no shipments of subject merchandise and, therefore, no reviewable 
transactions during the POR. As noted in the ``Assessment Rates'' 
section, below, the Department intends to issue appropriate 
instructions to CBP for Lamina y Placa and Mueller.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ See Lamina y Placa Letter, re: Certain Circular Welded Non-
Alloy Steel Pipe from Mexico: Notice of No Sales, dated January 19, 
2016. See also Mueller Letter, re: Certain Circular Welded Non-Alloy 
Steel Pipe from Mexico: Certification of No Shipments, dated 
February 9, 2016.
    \12\ See Preliminary Results.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.212(b), 
the Department has determined, 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 
assessment instructions to CBP 41 days after the date of publication of 
these final results of review.
    The Department will instruct CBP to apply an ad valorem assessment 
rate of 7.32 percent to all entries of subject merchandise during the 
POR which were produced and/or exported by Maquilacero. The Department 
will instruct CBP to apply an ad valorem assessment rate of 2.43 
percent to all entries of subject merchandise during the POR which were 
produced and/or exported by Regiopytsa. However, for the reasons 
discussed in the accompanying Issues and Decisions Memorandum, the 
Department will adjust the assessment rate for entries on certain 
entries of subject merchandise produced and/or exported by Maquilacero 
and Regiopytsa to account for the total amount of duties that would 
have been collected on the two companies' full universe of U.S. sales. 
The Department will instruct CBP to apply an ad valorem assessment rate 
of 3.53 percent to all entries of subject merchandise during the POR 
which

[[Page 27041]]

were produced and/or exported by Conduit, Prolamsa, or Ternium.
    Additionally, because the Department determined that Lamina y Placa 
and Mueller had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended 
entries that entered under those companies' case numbers (i.e., at 
those companies' rates) will be liquidated at the all-others rate 
effective during the period of review consistent with the Department's 
practice.\13\

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication of the final 
results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2) 
of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rates for Conduit, Maquilacero, 
Prolamsa, Regiopytsa, and Ternium will be the rates established in the 
final results of this administrative review; (2) for merchandise 
exported by producers or exporters not covered in this administrative 
review but covered in a prior segment of the proceeding, 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 
producer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the 
most recent period for the producer of the merchandise; and (4) the 
cash deposit rate for all other producers or exporters will continue to 
be 32.62 percent, the all-others rate established in the 
investigation.\14\ These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a final 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 doubled antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which 
continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of 
the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return/destruction 
of APO materials, or conversion to judicial protective order, is hereby 
requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the terms of an 
APO is a sanctionable violation.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h).

     Dated: June 6, 2017.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
