As noted above, GEO withdrew its request for review by the 90-day deadline and no other party requested an administrative review of the antidumping duty order. Accordingly, we are rescinding the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on glycine from China for the period March 1, 2017, through February 28, 2018, in its entirety, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of glycine from China. Antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). Commerce intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. Notification to Importers This notice serves as a 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 Commerce’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

On June 7, 2015, the Court remanded Commerce’s AR9 Amended Final Results.5 In the first remand, in accordance with the Court’s instructions, Commerce reconsidered its selection of the surrogate value (SV) for rice husk and provided further explanation concerning the cap to the fish oil byproduct offset in Vinh Hoan Corporation’s 6 margin calculation.7 Additionally, and in accordance with the Court’s instructions, Commerce made changes to Vinh Hoan’s margin calculation, specifically, by adjusting the denominators for Vinh Hoan’s factors of production (FOPs) to exclude water weight, and subsequently recalculating Vinh Hoan’s net U.S. price of sales for subject merchandise on a net weight basis exclusive of water weight.8 The Court upheld our findings on all but one of these issues, i.e., the fish oil by-product offset.9 On July 10, 2017, the Court remanded Commerce’s First Remand Results.10 In the second remand, in accordance with the Court’s instructions, Commerce provided further explanation with respect to the calculated fish oil by2 See Amended Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2010–2011, 79 FR 37714 (July 2, 2014) (AR9 Amended Final Results) and accompanying Ministerial Error Memorandum. 3 These include An Giang Fisheries Import and Export Joint Stock Company, Asia Commerce Fisheries Joint Stock Company, Cuu Long Fish Joint Stock Company, Hiep Thanh Seafood Joint Stock Company, International Development and Investment Corporation, NTSF Seafoods Joint Stock Company, QVD Food Company Ltd., Southern Fishery Industries Company, Ltd., and Vinh Hoan Corporation (collectively Agifish et al.). 4 Catfish Farmers of America and the following individual U.S. catfish processors: America’s Catch, Consolidated Catfish Companies, LLC dba Country Select Catfish, Delta Pride Catfish, Inc., Harvest Select Catfish, Inc., Heartland Catfish Company, Pride of the Pond, and Simmons Farm Raised Catfish, Inc.

United States, Court No. 14–00109, Slip Op. 16–55 (CIT June 7, 2016). 6 Vinh Hoan was one of two mandatory respondents selected by Commerce.

As a result of the AR9 Remand Results,12 there are calculation changes. After accounting for all such changes and issues in the AR9 Remand Results, the resulting antidumping duty margin for Vinh Hoan is de minimis. Because Vinh Hoan’s margin is now de minimis, Agifish’s margin (unchanged) becomes the margin ($1.20 per kilogram) for those companies not individually examined but receiving a separate rate. On May 24, 2018, the Court sustained the AR9 Remand Results.13 Consistent with the decision of the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) in Timken Co. v. United States, 893 F.2d 337 (Fed. Cir. 1990) (Timken), as clarified by Diamond Sawblades Mfrs. Coalition v. United States, 626 F.3d 1374 (Fed. Cir. 2010) (Diamond Sawblades), Commerce is notifying the public that the final judgment in this cases is not in harmony with Commerce’s final results of the antidumping duty administrative review of the antidumping duty order on fish fillets from Vietnam covering the POR. Thus, Commerce is amending the AR9 Amended Final Results with respect to the weighted-average dumping margins for Vinh Hoan, and the separate rate respondents.14 Timken Notice In its decision in Timken, 893 F.2d at 341, as clarified by Diamond Sawblades, the CAFC held that, pursuant to section 516A(e) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (Act), Commerce must publish a notice of a court decision that is not ‘‘in harmony’’ with a Commerce determination and must suspend liquidation of entries pending a ‘‘conclusive’’ court decision. The Court’s May 24, 2018, judgment sustaining the AR9 Remand constitutes a final decision of the Court that is not in harmony with Commerce’s AR9 Amended Final Results. This notice is published in fulfillment of the publication requirement of Timken. Amended Final Results Because there is now a final court decision, Commerce is amending the AR9 Amended Final Results with respect to Vinh Hoan, and the separate rate respondents.

    In the first remand, in accordance with the Court's instructions, 
Commerce reconsidered its selection of the surrogate value (SV) for 
rice husk and provided further explanation concerning the cap to the 
fish oil by-product offset in Vinh Hoan Corporation's \6\ margin 
calculation.\7\ Additionally, and in accordance with the Court's 
instructions, Commerce made changes to Vinh Hoan's margin calculation,

Sawblades, the CAFC held that, pursuant to section 516A(e) of the 
Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (Act), Commerce must publish a notice of 
a court decision that is not ``in harmony'' with a Commerce 
determination and must suspend liquidation of entries pending a 
``conclusive'' court decision. The Court's May 24, 2018, judgment 
sustaining the AR9 Remand constitutes a final decision of the Court 
that is not in harmony with Commerce's AR9 Amended Final Results. This 
notice is published in fulfillment of the publication requirement of 
Timken.

Amended Final Results

    Because there is now a final court decision, Commerce is amending 
the AR9 Amended Final Results with respect to Vinh Hoan, and the 
separate rate respondents. The revised weighted-average dumping margins 
for these exporters during the period August 1, 2011, through July 31, 
2012, are as follows:

    Accordingly, Commerce will continue the suspension of liquidation 
of the subject merchandise pending the expiration of the period of 
appeal or, if appealed, pending a final and conclusive court decision. 
In the event the Court's ruling is not appealed or, if appealed, upheld 
by the CAFC, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
to assess antidumping duties on unliquidated entries of subject 
merchandise exported by the companies identified above using the 
assessment rate calculated by Commerce in the AR9 Remand Results and 
listed above.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \15\ This rate is applicable to the Vinh Hoan Group which 
includes: Vinh Hoan, Van Duc, and VDTG.
    \16\ This rate is applicable to the Hung Vuong Group, which 
includes: An Giang Fisheries Import and Export Joint Stock Company, 
Asia Pangasius Company Limited, Europe Joint Stock Company, Hung 
Vuong Joint Stock Company, Hung Vuong Mascato Company Limited, Hung 
Vuong--Vinh Long Co., Ltd., and Hung Vuong--Sa Dec Co., Ltd.
    \17\ Includes the trade name Anvifish Co., Ltd., and Anvifish 
JSC.
    \18\ Includes the trade name CL Panga Fish.
    \19\ Includes the trade names East Sea Seafoods LLC and ESS.
    \20\ This rate is also applicable to QVD Dong Thap Food Co., 
Ltd. (Dong Thap) and Thuan Hung Co., Ltd. (THUFICO). In the second 
review of this order, Commerce found QVD, Dong Thap and THUFICO to 
be a single entity, and because there has been no evidence submitted 
on the record of this review that calls this determination into 
question, we continue to find these companies to be part of a single 
entity. Therefore, we will assign this rate to the companies in the 
single entity. See Certain Frozen Fish Fillets from the Socialist 
Republic of Vietnam: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review, 71 FR 53387 (September 11, 2006).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    Unless the applicable cash deposit rates have been superseded by 
cash deposit rates calculated in an intervening administrative review 
of the AD order on frozen fish fillets from Vietnam, Commerce will 
instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to require a cash deposit 
for estimated AD duties at the rate noted above for each specified 
exporter and producer combination, for entries of subject merchandise, 
entered or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption, on or after June 
3, 2018.
