Notification to Interested Parties SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 516A(e), 751(a)(1), and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Background On March 5, 2018, Commerce published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on glycine from China in the Federal Register. The period of review covers March 1, 2017, through February 28, 2018.1 On March 30, 2018, in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.213(b), Commerce received a timely request from GEO Specialty Chemicals, Inc. (GEO), a domestic producer of glycine, to conduct an administrative review of the order with respect to entries of subject merchandise made by Kumar Industries, Rudraa International, Salvi Chemical Industries, Avid Organics Pvt. Ltd., and Baoding Mantong Fine Chemistry Co., Ltd.2 On May 2, 2018, pursuant to this request, in accordance with section 751(a) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), we initiated a review of those companies.3 On May 30, 2018, GEO filed a timely withdrawal of its request of review for each of the five companies.4 No other party requested an administrative review of this order. 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 mentioned above using the assessment rate calculated by Commerce in the AR8 Remand Results and listed above. Dated: July 20, 2018. Gary Taverman, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations performing the non-exclusive functions and duties of the Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance. Cash Deposit Requirements International Trade Administration daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES Unless the applicable cash deposit rates have been superseded by cash deposit rates calculated in an intervening administrative review of the AD order on frozen fish fillets from Vietnam, Commerce will instruct U.S.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. 16 This rate is applicable to the Vinh Hoan Group which includes: Vinh Hoan, Van Duc, and VDTG. 17 Includes the trade name Anvifish Co., Ltd. 18 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.

initiation of the requested review. As noted above, GEO withdrew its 
request for review by the 90-day deadline and no other party requested

instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of this

responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation
