SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background amozie on DSK9F9SC42PROD with NOTICES In response to requests from interested parties, Commerce is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (Vietnam) which it initiated on April 16, 2018.1 The period of review (POR) is February 1, 2017, through January 31, 2018. On August 9, 2018, we rescinded the review with respect to Soc Trang Seafood Joint Stock Company and Seavina Joint Stock Company.2 Commerce exercised its discretion to toll all deadlines affected by the partial federal government closure from December 22, 2018, through the resumption of operations on January 29, 2019.3 Accordingly, the 1 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 83 FR 16298 (April 16, 2018) (Initiation Notice). 2 See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2017– 2018, 83 FR 39411 (August 9, 2018). 3 See Memorandum to the Record from 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, ‘‘Deadlines Affected by the Partial Shutdown of the Federal Government,’’ dated VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:22 Apr 19, 2019 Jkt 247001 The merchandise subject to the Order is certain frozen warmwater shrimp. The product is currently classified under the following Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) item numbers: 0306.17.00.03, 0306.17.00.06, 0306.17.00.09, 0306.17.00.12, 0306.17.00.15, 0306.17.00.18, 0306.17.00.21, 0306.17.00.24, 0306.17.00.27, 0306.17.00.40, 1605.21.10.30, and 1605.29.10.10. Although the HTSUS numbers are provided for convenience and for customs purposes, the written product description, available in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, remains dispositive.4 Methodology Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Export prices and constructed export prices were calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Because Vietnam is a non-market economy within the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, NV was calculated in accordance with section 773(c) of the Act. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see Preliminary Decision Memorandum. The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically via the Enforcement and Compliance’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS). ACCESS is available to registered users at http:// access.trade.gov and in the Central Records Unit, Room B8024 of the main Department of Commerce building. In addition, a complete version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly on the internet at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. The January 28, 2019.

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments Based on our analysis of information from Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and information provided by 18 companies, we preliminarily determine that these 18 companies 5 subject to this review did not have any reviewable transactions during the POR. Commerce finds, consistent with its assessment practice in non-market economy cases, that it is appropriate not to rescind the review in part in these circumstances, but to complete the review with respect to these 18 companies and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of the review.6 For additional information regarding this determination, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Commerce finds that 67 companies (see Appendix II) for which a review was requested have not established eligibility for a separate rate and are considered to be part of the Vietnamwide entity for these preliminary results.7 Because no party requested a 5 These 18 companies are: (1) Au Vung One Seafood Processing Import & Export Joint Stock Company; (2) Au Vung Two Seafood Processing Import & Export Joint Stock Company; (3) Bien Dong Seafood Co., Ltd.; (4) BIM Foods Joint Stock Company also initiated as BIM Seafood Joint Stock Company; (5) Cafatex Corporation; (6) Xi Nghiep Che Bien Thuy Suc San Xuat Kau Cantho; (7) Taydo Seafood Enterprise (8) Cam Ranh Seafoods (9) Green Farms Joint Stock Company also initiated as Green Farms Seafoods Joint Stock Company; (10) Investment Commerce Fisheries Corporation (‘‘INCOMFISH’’) also initiated as Investment Commerce Fisheries Corporation (Incomfish); (11) Khanh Sung Co., Ltd.; (12) NGO BROS Seaproducts Import-Export One Member Company Limited (‘‘NGO BROS Company’’) also initiated as Ngo Bros Seaproducts Import-Export One Member Company Limited (‘‘Ngo Bros.

Disclosure and Public Comment amozie on DSK9F9SC42PROD with NOTICES Commerce will disclose the calculations used in our analysis to parties in this review within five days of the date of publication of this notice. Interested parties are invited to comment on the preliminary results of 8 See Antidumping Proceedings: Announcement of Change in Department Practice for Respondent Selection in Antidumping Duty Proceedings and Conditional Review of the Nonmarket Economy Entity in NME Antidumping Duty Proceedings, 78 FR 65963 (November 4, 2013). Commerce’s policy regarding conditional review of the Vietnam-wide entity applies to this administrative review. Under this policy, the Vietnam-wide entity will not be under review unless a party specifically requests, or Commerce self-initiates, a review of the entity. 9 Due to the issues we have had in past segments of the proceeding with variations of exporter names related to this Order, we remind exporters that the names listed in the rate box are the exact names, including spelling and punctuation, which Commerce will provide to CBP and which CBP will use to assess POR entries and collect cash deposits. Any names with punctuation variations, such as all capitalizations, dashes, periods, or commas, or abbreviations of the word Company to ‘‘Co.’’ and VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:22 Apr 19, 2019 Jkt 247001 16649 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 this review. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.309(c)(1)(ii), interested parties may submit case briefs no later than 30 days after the publication of these preliminary results, and rebuttal comments within five days after the time limit for filing case briefs, unless these deadlines are extended at a later date. Parties who submit case briefs or rebuttal briefs are requested to submit with the argument: (1) A statement of the issue; (2) a brief summary of the argument; and (3) a table of authorities.11 Rebuttal briefs must be limited to issues raised in the case briefs.12 Limited to ‘‘Ltd.’’ can be confirmed by Commerce in the event CBP inquires about such variations. Commerce reminds interested parties that claimed affiliates are not automatically added to an exporter’s rate box unless Commerce has made a collapsing determination for that exporter in the instant, or in prior, segments of the proceeding. Furthermore, inclusion of alternate trade names in an exporter’s rate box must be supported by evidence on the record that the alternate trade name: 1) Appears on the exporter’s business license (as an exporter), and 2) appears on commercial documents for CBP’s examination upon entry.

As the single entity has not reported changes since the preceding administrative review regarding the corporate or legal structure of the companies within the single entity, we continue to find that these companies are affiliated and comprise a single entity to which we will assign a single rate. 11 See 19 CFR 351.309(c) and (d). 12 See 19 CFR 351.309(d)(2).

Requests should contain: (1) The party’s name, address and telephone number; (2) the number of participants; and (3) a list of issues parties intend to discuss.

If a request for a hearing is made, Commerce intends to hold the hearing at the U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230, at a date and time to be determined.13 Parties should confirm by telephone the date, time, and location of the hearing two days before the scheduled date.

For any individually examined respondent whose weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., is 0.50 percent or more) in the final results of this review, Commerce will calculate importer-specific assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales and the total entered value of those sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).15 We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review when the importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review is above de minimis. Where a respondent’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importerspecific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to 13 See 19 CFR 351.310(d). 19 CFR 351.212(b). 15 In these preliminary results, Commerce applied the assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012). 14 See VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:22 Apr 19, 2019 Jkt 247001 liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. For the respondents that were not selected for individual examination in this administrative review but qualified for a separate rate, the assessment rate will be equal to the average of the weighted-average dumping margins calculated for the mandatory respondents consistent with section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act. The weightedaverage dumping margins calculated for both mandatory respondents in this review are 0.00 percent. Consequently, the rate preliminarily established for the non-individually examined companies is an ad valorem rate of 0.00 percent. For entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales database submitted by the two mandatory respondents during this review, Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the Vietnamwide rate. In addition, if we continue to find in the final results no shipments for the companies identified in the ‘‘Preliminary Determination of No Shipments’’ section above, Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate any suspended entries of subject merchandise that entered under those companies’ case numbers at the Vietnam-wide rate.16 For the final results, if we continue to treat the 67 companies identified in Appendix II as part of the Vietnam-wide entity, we will instruct CBP to apply an ad valorem assessment rate of 25.76 percent to all entries of subject merchandise during the POR which were produced and/or exported by those companies. The final results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by the final results of this review and for future deposits of estimated duties, where applicable. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for shipments of the subject merchandise from Vietnam entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided by sections 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the companies listed above, which have a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that established in the final results of this review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, then zero cash deposit will be required); (2) for previously investigated or reviewed Vietnam and non-Vietnam exporters not listed above 16 For a full discussion of this practice, see NME AD Assessment. PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 that received a separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing exporter-specific rate; (3) for all Vietnam exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the existing rate for the Vietnam-wide entity of 25.76 percent; and (4) for all non-Vietnam exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the Vietnam exporter that supplied that non-Vietnam exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers This notice also serves as a preliminary 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 double antidumping duties.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The New England Aquarium (NEAQ) submitted a complete application for an Exempted Fishing Permit (EFP) on March 25, 2019, to conduct fishing activities that the regulations would otherwise restrict. NEAQ is requesting an exemption from Federal lobster regulations that would authorize two federally-permitted commercial lobster vessels to participate in a ropeless lobster gear study. NEAQ is requesting an exemption from the following regulation: 1. Gear marking requirements to allow for the use of a single buoy marker on a trawl of more than three traps (50 CFR 697.21(b)(2)). The purpose of this study is to test a prototype ropeless fishing system as a potential technique to prevent entanglements of protected species, primarily North Atlantic right whales. This study is funded through the Bycatch Reduction Engineering Program (NA18NMF4720279). The EFP would authorize two participating vessels to deploy two experimental trawls consisting of five or more traps. Experimental trawls would have a rope spool, fitted with an acoustic release, deployed on one end of the trawl, with a buoy line attached to the other. Soak time would be between 2–5 days, but may be modified depending on what each fisherman decides is appropriate for fishing. Sampling would occur from May to September, 2019 in Lobster Conservation Management Area 3. Initial deployments would be overseen by a Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute engineering team, but later would be observed by NEAQ personnel. There would be a total of 42 deployments of experimental trawls. If approved, the applicant may request minor modifications and extensions to the EFP throughout the year. EFP modifications and extensions may be granted without further notice if DATES: E:\FR\FM\22APN1.SGM 22APN1

Socialist Republic of Vietnam (Vietnam) by Fimex VN and Nha Trang 
Seaproduct Company were not made at prices below normal value (NV). 
Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results.

DATES: Applicable April 22, 2019.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Irene Gorelik or Josh Simonidis, AD/
CVD Operations, Office VIII, Enforcement and Compliance, International

respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    In response to requests from interested parties, Commerce is 
conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on 
certain frozen warmwater shrimp from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam 
(Vietnam) which it initiated on April 16, 2018.\1\ The period of review 
(POR) is February 1, 2017, through January 31, 2018. On August 9, 2018,

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to the Order is certain frozen warmwater 
shrimp. The product is currently classified under the following 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) item numbers: 
0306.17.00.03, 0306.17.00.06, 0306.17.00.09, 0306.17.00.12,

Memorandum to Gary Taverman, Deputy Assistant Secretary for 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations performing the non-
exclusive functions of the Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and 
Compliance, from James Maeder, Associate Deputy Assistant Secretary 
for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations performing the 
duties of Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Operations, titled ``Decision Memorandum for 
Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: 
Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the Socialist Republic of 
Vietnam; 2016-2017,'' dated concurrently with, and adopted by, this 
notice (Preliminary Decision Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Methodology

    Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Export 
prices and constructed export prices were calculated in accordance with 
section 772 of the Act. Because Vietnam is a non-market economy within 
the meaning of section 771(18) of the Act, NV was calculated in 
accordance with section 773(c) of the Act.
    For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, see Preliminary Decision Memorandum. The Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically 
via the Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS). ACCESS is 
available to registered users at http://access.trade.gov and in the 
Central Records Unit, Room B8024 of the main Department of Commerce 
building. In addition, a complete version of the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum can be accessed directly on the internet at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. The signed Preliminary Decision Memorandum 
and the electronic version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are 
identical in content.

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    Based on our analysis of information from Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) and information provided by 18 companies, we 
preliminarily determine that these 18 companies \5\ subject to this 
review did not have any reviewable transactions during the POR. 
Commerce finds, consistent with its assessment practice in non-market 
economy cases, that it is appropriate not to rescind the review in part 
in these circumstances, but to complete the review with respect to 
these 18 companies and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on 
the final results of the review.\6\ For additional information 
regarding this determination, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ These 18 companies are: (1) Au Vung One Seafood Processing 
Import & Export Joint Stock Company; (2) Au Vung Two Seafood 
Processing Import & Export Joint Stock Company; (3) Bien Dong 
Seafood Co., Ltd.; (4) BIM Foods Joint Stock Company also initiated

of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011) (NME AD 
Assessment); see also ``Assessment Rates'' section below.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Commerce finds that 67 companies (see Appendix II) for which a 
review was requested have not established eligibility for a separate 
rate and are considered to be part of the Vietnam-wide entity for these 
preliminary results.\7\ Because no party requested a

[[Page 16649]]

review of the Vietnam-wide entity, the entity is not under review and 
the entity's rate of 25.76 percent is not subject to change.\8\

(accounting for duplicate names initiated upon; see also Preliminary

Department Practice for Respondent Selection in Antidumping Duty 
Proceedings and Conditional Review of the Nonmarket Economy Entity 
in NME Antidumping Duty Proceedings, 78 FR 65963 (November 4, 2013). 
Commerce's policy regarding conditional review of the Vietnam-wide 
entity applies to this administrative review. Under this policy, the 
Vietnam-wide entity will not be under review unless a party 
specifically requests, or Commerce self-initiates, a review of the 
entity.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preliminary Results of Review

    For companies for which a review was requested and that have 
established eligibility for a separate rate, Commerce preliminarily 
determines that the following weighted-average dumping margins exist:

Disclosure and Public Comment
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ Due to the issues we have had in past segments of the 
proceeding with variations of exporter names related to this Order, 
we remind exporters that the names listed in the rate box are the 
exact names, including spelling and punctuation, which Commerce will 
provide to CBP and which CBP will use to assess POR entries and 
collect cash deposits. Any names with punctuation variations, such 
as all capitalizations, dashes, periods, or commas, or abbreviations 
of the word Company to ``Co.'' and Limited to ``Ltd.'' can be 
confirmed by Commerce in the event CBP inquires about such 
variations. Commerce reminds interested parties that claimed 
affiliates are not automatically added to an exporter's rate box 
unless Commerce has made a collapsing determination for that 
exporter in the instant, or in prior, segments of the proceeding. 
Furthermore, inclusion of alternate trade names in an exporter's 
rate box must be supported by evidence on the record that the 
alternate trade name: 1) Appears on the exporter's business license 
(as an exporter), and 2) appears on commercial documents for CBP's 
examination upon entry. See, e.g., Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp 
from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Final Results of Antidumping 
Duty Administrative Review, 2016-2017, 83 FR 46704 (September 14, 
2018), and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 3.
    \10\ Commerce previously determined Nha Trang Seaproduct Company 
to be part of a single entity along with NT Seafoods Corporation, 
Nha Trang Seafoods--F89 Joint Stock Company, and NTSF Seafoods Joint 
Stock Company. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From the 
Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Preliminary Results, Partial 
Rescission, and Request for Revocation, In Part, of the Fifth 
Administrative Review, 76 FR 12054, 12056 (March 4, 2011), unchanged 
in Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From the Socialist Republic of 
Vietnam: Final Results and Final Partial Rescission of Antidumping 
Duty Administrative Review, 76 FR 56158 (September 12, 2011). As the 
single entity has not reported changes since the preceding 
administrative review regarding the corporate or legal structure of 
the companies within the single entity, we continue to find that 
these companies are affiliated and comprise a single entity to which 
we will assign a single rate.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Commerce will disclose the calculations used in our analysis to 
parties in this review within five days of the date of publication of 
this notice. Interested parties are invited to comment on the 
preliminary results of this review. Pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.309(c)(1)(ii), interested parties may submit case briefs no later 
than 30 days after the publication of these preliminary results, and 
rebuttal comments within five days after the time limit for filing case 
briefs, unless these deadlines are extended at a later date. Parties 
who submit case briefs or rebuttal briefs are requested to submit with 
the argument: (1) A statement of the issue; (2) a brief summary of the 
argument; and (3) a table of authorities.\11\ Rebuttal briefs must be 
limited to issues raised in the case briefs.\12\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ See 19 CFR 351.309(c) and (d).
    \12\ See 19 CFR 351.309(d)(2).

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

[[Page 16650]]

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.310(c), interested parties who wish to 
request a hearing must submit a written request to the Assistant 
Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance within 30 days of the date of 
publication of this notice. Requests should contain: (1) The party's 
name, address and telephone number; (2) the number of participants; and 
(3) a list of issues parties intend to discuss. Issues raised in the 
hearing will be limited to those raised in the respective case and 
rebuttal briefs. If a request for a hearing is made, Commerce intends 
to hold the hearing at the U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 
Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230, at a date and time to be 
determined.\13\ Parties should confirm by telephone the date, time, and 
location of the hearing two days before the scheduled date.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ See 19 CFR 351.310(d).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Commerce intends to issue the final results of this administrative 
review, including the results of our analysis of issues raised in the 
written comments, within 120 days of publication of these preliminary 
results in the Federal Register, unless this deadline is extended.

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, Commerce will determine, and 
CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered 
by this review.\14\ Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions 
to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final results of this 
review. For any individually examined respondent whose weighted-average 
dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., is 0.50 percent or more) in 
the final results of this review, Commerce will calculate importer-
specific assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount 
of dumping calculated for the importer's examined sales and the total 
entered value of those sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1).\15\ We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on 
all appropriate entries covered by this review when the importer-
specific assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review 
is above de minimis. Where a respondent's weighted-average dumping 
margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-specific assessment rate 
is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the 
appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \14\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b).
    \15\ In these preliminary results, Commerce applied the 
assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping 
Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and 
Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings; Final 
Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For the respondents that were not selected for individual 
examination in this administrative review but qualified for a separate 
rate, the assessment rate will be equal to the average of the weighted-
average dumping margins calculated for the mandatory respondents 
consistent with section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act. The weighted-average 
dumping margins calculated for both mandatory respondents in this 
review are 0.00 percent. Consequently, the rate preliminarily 
established for the non-individually examined companies is an ad 
valorem rate of 0.00 percent.
    For entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales database 
submitted by the two mandatory respondents during this review, Commerce 
will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the Vietnam-wide rate. 
In addition, if we continue to find in the final results no shipments 
for the companies identified in the ``Preliminary Determination of No 
Shipments'' section above, Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate any 
suspended entries of subject merchandise that entered under those 
companies' case numbers at the Vietnam-wide rate.\16\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \16\ For a full discussion of this practice, see NME AD 
Assessment.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For the final results, if we continue to treat the 67 companies 
identified in Appendix II as part of the Vietnam-wide entity, we will 
instruct CBP to apply an ad valorem assessment rate of 25.76 percent to 
all entries of subject merchandise during the POR which were produced 
and/or exported by those companies.
    The final results of this review shall be the basis for the 
assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by 
the final results of this review and for future deposits of estimated 
duties, where applicable.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for 
shipments of the subject merchandise from Vietnam entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided by sections 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the companies 
listed above, which have a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be 
that established in the final results of this review (except, if the 
rate is zero or de minimis, then zero cash deposit will be required); 
(2) for previously investigated or reviewed Vietnam and non-Vietnam 
exporters not listed above that received a separate rate in a prior 
segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be 
the existing exporter-specific rate; (3) for all Vietnam exporters of 
subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a 
separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the existing rate for the 
Vietnam-wide entity of 25.76 percent; and (4) for all non-Vietnam 
exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own 
rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the Vietnam 
exporter that supplied that non-Vietnam exporter. These deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a preliminary 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 double antidumping duties.
    This determination is issued and published in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: April 8, 2019.

Operations, performing the non-exclusive functions and duties of the 
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
