Consequently, we concluded that the BBS data are not the best available information on the record with which to value the respondents’ labor. Instead, we determined to use Indian data on the record as a surrogate value for labor.5 In the AR8 Final Results, we calculated a 9.75 percent weightedaverage margin for Soc Trang Seafood Joint Stock Company, unchanged in AR8 Amended Final Results.6 Based on our change of the labor surrogate value in Remand II, we calculated a 10.48 percent weighted-average margin for Soc Trang Seafood Joint Stock Company.7 We intend to liquidate Soc Trang Seafood Joint Stock Company’s enjoined entries of subject merchandise at the importer-specific assessment rates revised pursuant to Remand II and identified within the Draft Remand Recalculations. Further, we adjusted the Minh Phu Group’s final margin from 4.98 percent 8 to 5.48 percent,9 for the sole purpose of recalculating the separate rate for the non-individually examined companies that received a separate rate and are parties to this litigation; however, there is no effect to the Minh Phu Group’s final margin of 4.98 percent in the AR8 Final Results unchanged in AR8 3 See Final Results of Redetermination Pursuant to Court Remand, dated September 1, 2016 (Remand I) at 5; available at: http:// enforcement.trade.gov/remands/16-33.pdf. 4 See Tri Union Frozen Products Inc., et.al., v.

Timken Notice In its decision in Timken,12 as clarified by Diamond Sawblades,13 the Federal Circuit 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. This notice is published in fulfillment of the publication requirement of Timken. Accordingly, the Department will continue the suspension of liquidation of the subject merchandise at issue in the Remand II pending expiration of the period to appeal or, if appealed, a final and conclusive court decision. Amended Final Results Because there is now a final court decision, the Department is amending the AR8 Amended Final Results. Based on Remand II, as affirmed by the Court on August 8, 2017, the revised weighted-average dumping margin for Soc Trang Seafood Joint Stock Company for the period February 1, 2012, through January 31, 2013, is 10.48 percent. The margin for the non-individually examined respondents that received a separate rate in the AR8 Final Results and are subject to this litigation is 6.94 percent. In the event that the CIT’s ruling is not appealed or, if appealed, is upheld 10 Since the issuance of the AR8 Final Results, the Department has revoked the antidumping duty order with respect to the Minh Phu Group. Moreover, the Minh Phu Group is not subject to this litigation, the original injunction enjoining the lifting of suspension has been lifted, and the suspended entries have been liquidated.

review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp 
from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (Vietnam) covering the period of 
review (POR) of February 1, 2012, through January 31, 2013. The 
Department is notifying the public that the final judgment in this case

the labor surrogate value applied in the administrative review.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On September 24, 2014, the Department published the AR8 Final 
Results, and on November 4, 2014, it published the AR8 Amended Final 
Results.\1\ In Tri Union I, the CIT granted our request for a voluntary 
remand on the issue of the labor surrogate value.\2\ In Remand I, the 
Department determined that wage rate data from the Bangladeshi Bureau 
of Statistics (BBS) were not aberrational and constituted the best 
available information for valuing labor.\3\ Subsequently, in the Remand 
II Opinion and Order, the CIT remanded this issue again to the 
Department.\4\

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

    In light of the Court's Remand II Opinion and Order, we evaluated 
the record evidence and reconsidered our determination that the 
Bangladeshi data are the best available information. Consequently, we 
concluded that the BBS data are not the best available information on 
the record with which to value the respondents' labor. Instead, we 
determined to use Indian data on the record as a surrogate value for 
labor.\5\

Remand II Recalculations,'' dated July 5, 2017 (Draft Remand 
Recalculations).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In the AR8 Final Results, we calculated a 9.75 percent weighted-
average margin for Soc Trang Seafood Joint Stock Company, unchanged in 
AR8 Amended Final Results.\6\ Based on our change of the labor 
surrogate value in Remand II, we calculated a 10.48 percent weighted-
average margin for Soc Trang Seafood Joint Stock Company.\7\ We intend 
to liquidate Soc Trang Seafood Joint Stock Company's enjoined entries 
of subject merchandise at the importer-specific assessment rates 
revised pursuant to Remand II and identified within the Draft Remand 
Recalculations.

Redetermination--Draft Remand II Recalculations,'' dated July 5,

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

    Further, we adjusted the Minh Phu Group's final margin from 4.98 
percent \8\ to 5.48 percent,\9\ for the sole purpose of recalculating 
the separate rate for the non-individually examined companies that 
received a separate rate and are parties to this litigation; however, 
there is no effect to the Minh Phu Group's final margin of 4.98 percent 
in the AR8 Final Results unchanged in AR8 Amended Final Results.\10\ 
The Department recalculated the separate rate resulting in a weighted-
average dumping margin of 6.94 percent for the non-individually 
examined companies that qualified for a separate rate and are subject 
to this litigation.\11\ We intend to liquidate these companies' 
enjoined entries of subject merchandise at this revised rate of 6.94 
percent at the completion of this litigation.

    \10\ Since the issuance of the AR8 Final Results, the Department 
has revoked the antidumping duty order with respect to the Minh Phu 
Group. Moreover, the Minh Phu Group is not subject to this 
litigation, the original injunction enjoining the lifting of 
suspension has been lifted, and the suspended entries have been 
liquidated. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the Socialist 
Republic of Vietnam: Notice of Implementation of Determination Under

Timken Notice

    In its decision in Timken,\12\ as clarified by Diamond 
Sawblades,\13\ the Federal Circuit 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ See Diamond Sawblades Mfrs. Coalition v. United States, 626 
F.3d 1374 (Fed. Cir. 2010) (Diamond Sawblades).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This notice is published in fulfillment of the publication 
requirement of Timken. Accordingly, the Department will continue the 
suspension of liquidation of the subject merchandise at issue in the 
Remand II pending expiration of the period to appeal or, if appealed, a 
final and conclusive court decision.

Amended Final Results

    Because there is now a final court decision, the Department is 
amending the AR8 Amended Final Results. Based on Remand II, as affirmed 
by the Court on August 8, 2017, the revised weighted-average dumping 
margin for Soc Trang Seafood Joint Stock Company for the period 
February 1, 2012, through January 31, 2013, is 10.48 percent. The 
margin for the non-individually examined respondents that received a 
separate rate in the AR8 Final Results and are subject to this 
litigation is 6.94 percent.
    In the event that the CIT's ruling is not appealed or, if appealed, 
is upheld

[[Page 39761]]

by a final and conclusive court decision, the Department will instruct 
U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess antidumping duties on 
unliquidated entries of subject merchandise based on the importer-
specific assessment rates re-calculated in Remand II for Soc Trang 
Seafood Joint Stock Company and the above-noted 6.94 percent 
recalculated separate rate for the non-individually examined 
respondents that received a separate rate in the AR8 Final Results and 
are subject to this litigation.

Cash Deposit Requirements

Mandatory Respondent

    Because there have been subsequent administrative reviews for Soc 
Trang Seafood Joint Stock Company, the cash deposit rate for Soc Trang 
Seafood Joint Stock Company will remain the rate established in the 
most recently-completed administrative review in which it received a 
cash deposit rate of 4.78 percent.\14\

Administrative Review, 2014-2015, 81 FR 62717, 62718-62719 
(September 12, 2016) (AR10 Final Results). Soc Trang Seafood Joint 
Stock Company was granted the following ``also-known-as'' (aka) or 
``doing-business-as'' (dba) names in AR8 Final Results (which were 
included in the injunction enjoining liquidation of suspended 
entries): Soc Trang Seafood Joint Stock Company, aka Stapimex, aka 
Soc Trang Aquatic Products and General Import Export Company, aka 
Soc Trang Aquatic Products and General Import Export Company 
(``Stapimex''), aka Stapmex. However, many of these names were not 
granted separate rate status in AR10 Final Results. Thus, for 
liquidation purposes, we will continue to use Soc Trang Seafood 
Joint Stock Company's aforementioned aka/dba names; but for cash 
deposit purposes, only the aka and/or dba names granted in AR10 
Final Results are valid.
    \15\ Many of the aka or dba names subject to the litigation were 
not included in subsequent reviews. Therefore, the aka and/or dba 
names granted separate rate status in subsequent reviews supersede 
those listed above. The names listed above are included here as they 
appear in the injunctions enjoining liquidation pending completion 
of this litigation. Therefore, for liquidation purposes, we will 
continue to use the names above; however, only the aka and/or dba 
names granted in subsequent reviews are valid for cash deposit 
purposes.
