SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES Background On March 27, 2018, the Department of Commerce (Commerce) initiated a lessthan-fair-value (LTFV) investigation of imports of laminated woven sacks (LWS) from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (Vietnam).1 Currently, the preliminary determination is due no later than August 14, 2018. Postponement of Preliminary Determination Section 733(b)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires 1 See Laminated Woven Sacks From the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Initiation of Less-Than-FairValue Investigation, 83 FR 14257 (April 3, 2018) (Initiation Notice).

However, section 733(c)(1)(A)(b)(1) of the Act permits Commerce to postpone the preliminary determination until no later than 190 days after the date on which Commerce initiated the investigation if: (A) The petitioner makes a timely request for a postponement; or (B) Commerce concludes that the parties concerned are cooperating, that the investigation is extraordinarily complicated, and that additional time is necessary to make a preliminary determination. Under 19 CFR 351.205(e), the petitioner must submit a request for postponement 25 days or more before the scheduled date of the preliminary determination and must state the reasons for the request. Commerce will grant the request unless it finds compelling reasons to deny the request. On July 17, 2018, the petitioners 2 submitted a timely request that Commerce postpone the preliminary determination in the LTFV investigation.3 The petitioners stated that they request postponement ‘‘because the initial questionnaire responses submitted by the respondents in this investigation are substantially deficient, and it may not be possible for {Commerce} to obtain usable corrected responses within the current schedule.’’ 4 For the reasons stated above, and because there are no compelling reasons to deny the request, Commerce, in accordance with section 733(c)(1)(A) of the Act, is postponing the deadline for the preliminary determination by 50 days (i.e., 190 days after the date on which this investigations was initiated). As a result, Commerce will issue its preliminary determination no later than October 3, 2018. In accordance with section 735(a)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(1), the deadline for the final determination of this investigation will continue to be 75 days after the date of the preliminary determination, unless postponed at a later date.

On February 19, 2015, the Court remanded Commerce’s AR8 Amended Final Results.5 daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES In the first remand, in accordance with the Court’s instructions, Commerce reconsidered its selection of the surrogate country, and the selection of certain surrogate values (SVs), i.e., whole live pangasius fish, surrogate financial statements, various byproducts and several other SVs, as they relate to the selection of the surrogate country.6 Additionally, and in accordance with the Court’s instructions, Commerce made changes to Vinh Hoan Corporation’s 7 (Vinh Hoan) margin calculation, specifically, by adjusting the denominators for Vinh Hoan’s factors of production (FOPs) to exclude water weight, and adjusting the consignment expense for certain sales. Commerce made changes to the margin calculations of Vinh Hoan, Anvifish Joint Stock Company (Anvifish) and the separate rate respondents’ margins to account for a small change in the whole live fish SV. Also, at Commerce’s request, the Court granted Commerce a voluntary remand to reconsider the calculation of the cap applied to Vinh Hoan’s fish oil by-product offset. 2011, 78 FR 29323 (May 20, 2013) (AR8 Amended Final Results) and accompanying Ministerial Error Memorandum. 3 These include Vinh Hoan, the Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers, Binh An Seafood Joint Stock Company (Binh An), Anvifish and Vinh Quang Fisheries Corporation (Vinh Quang). 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.

Vinh Hoan includes Vinh Hoan Corporation and its affiliates Van Duc Food Export Joint Company and Van Duc Tien Giang (VDTG). VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:30 Jul 30, 2018 Jkt 244001 On May 26, 2016, the Court remanded Commerce’s First Remand Results.8 In the second remand, in accordance with the Court’s instructions, Commerce reconsidered its selection of the sawdust and rice husk SVs, provided further explanation concerning the cap to the fish oil by-product offset, and discussed the use of the absolute value of byproducts in the margin calculation.9 The Court upheld our findings on these issues, except one, the fish oil byproduct offset.10 On July 10, 2017, the Court remanded Commerce’s Second Remand Results.11 In the third remand, in accordance with the Court’s instructions, Commerce provided further explanation with respect to the calculated fish oil byproduct offset and its superiority with respect to the other fish oil SVs on the record.12 On September 22, 2017, Commerce filed the Third Remand Results with the Court. On May 24, 2018, the Court upheld the Third Remand Results. As a result of the AR8 Remand Results,13 there are calculation changes. After accounting for all such changes and issues in the AR8 Remand Results, the resulting antidumping margin for Vinh Hoan is $0.13 per kilogram and $2.39 per kilogram for Anvifish. Because Vinh Hoan’s and Anvifish’s margins changed, their weighted average also becomes the margin ($1.28 per kilogram) for those companies not individually examined but receiving a separate rate. On May 24, 2018, the Court sustained the AR8 Remand Results.14 Vinh Hoan Corporation et al. v.

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 case 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 AR8 Amended Final Results with respect to the weighted-average dumping margins for Vinh Hoan, Anvifish and the separate rate respondents.15 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 AR8 Remand constitutes a final decision of the Court that is not in harmony with Commerce’s AR8 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 AR8 Amended Final Results with respect to Vinh Hoan, Anvifish and the separate rate respondents.

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.

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.

Commerce reconsidered its selection of the surrogate country, and the 
selection of certain surrogate values (SVs), i.e., whole live pangasius 
fish, surrogate financial statements, various by-products and several 
other SVs, as they relate to the selection of the surrogate country.\6\ 
Additionally, and in accordance with the Court's instructions, Commerce 
made changes to Vinh Hoan Corporation's \7\ (Vinh Hoan) margin 
calculation, specifically, by adjusting the denominators for Vinh 
Hoan's factors of production (FOPs) to exclude water weight, and 
adjusting the consignment expense for certain sales. Commerce made 
changes to the margin calculations of Vinh Hoan, Anvifish Joint Stock 
Company (Anvifish) and the separate rate respondents' margins to 
account for a small change in the whole live fish SV. Also, at 
Commerce's request, the Court granted Commerce a voluntary remand to 
reconsider the calculation of the cap applied to Vinh Hoan's fish oil 
by-product offset.

Results.\8\ In the second remand, in accordance with the Court's 
instructions, Commerce reconsidered its selection of the sawdust and 
rice husk SVs, provided further explanation concerning the cap to the 
fish oil by-product offset, and discussed the use of the absolute value 
of by-products in the margin calculation.\9\ The Court upheld our 
findings on these issues, except one, the fish oil by-product 
offset.\10\

    On July 10, 2017, the Court remanded Commerce's Second Remand 
Results.\11\ In the third remand, in accordance with the Court's 
instructions, Commerce provided further explanation with respect to the 
calculated fish oil by-product offset and its superiority with respect 
to the other fish oil SVs on the record.\12\ On September 22, 2017,

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

    As a result of the AR8 Remand Results,\13\ there are calculation 
changes. After accounting for all such changes and issues in the AR8 
Remand Results, the resulting antidumping margin for Vinh Hoan is $0.13 
per kilogram and $2.39 per kilogram for Anvifish. Because Vinh Hoan's 
and Anvifish's margins changed, their weighted average also becomes the 
margin ($1.28 per kilogram) for those companies not individually 
examined but receiving a separate rate. On May 24, 2018, the Court 
sustained the AR8 Remand Results.\14\

Sawblades), Commerce is notifying the public that the final judgment in 
this case 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 AR8 Amended Final Results with respect to the weighted-average 
dumping margins for Vinh Hoan, Anvifish and the separate rate 
respondents.\15\

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 AR8 Remand constitutes a final decision of the Court 
that is not in harmony with Commerce's AR8 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 AR8 Amended Final Results with respect to Vinh Hoan, Anvifish and 
the separate rate respondents. The revised weighted-average dumping 
margins for these exporters during the period August 1, 2010, through 
July 31, 2011, 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 mentioned above using the 
assessment rate calculated by Commerce in the AR8 Remand Results and 
listed above.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \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. 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.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections
