Postponement of Preliminary Determinations Section 733(b)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires Commerce to issue the preliminary determination in an LTFV investigation within 140 days after the date on which Commerce initiated the investigation. However, section 733(c)(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 and determines that (i) the investigation is extraordinarily complicated, and that (ii) 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 March 29, 2019, the petitioners 3 submitted a timely request that Commerce postpone the preliminary determinations in these LTFV investigations.4 The petitioners stated that they requested postponement to allow Commerce time to gather all data and questionnaire responses and to allow Commerce and interested parties 1 See Polyester Textured Yarn from India and the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of Less-ThanFair-Value Investigations, 83 FR 58223 (November 19, 2018) (Initiation Notice). 2 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 January 28, 2019.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Commerce is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on shrimp from India. The review covers six producers and/or exporters of the subject merchandise. Commerce selected two mandatory respondents for individual examination: Calcutta Seafoods Pvt. Ltd./Bay Seafood Pvt. Ltd./Elque & Co. (collectively, the Elque Group); and Magnum Sea Foods Limited/Magnum Estates Limited (collectively, Magnum). The POR is February 1, 2017, through January 31, 2018. We preliminarily determine that sales to the United States have been made below normal value and, therefore, are subject to antidumping duties. If these preliminary results are adopted in the final results of this review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. We invite all interested parties to comment on these preliminary results. 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, 2019.1 If the new deadline falls on a non-business day, in accordance with Commerce’s practice, the deadline will become the next business day. Accordingly, the revised deadline for the preliminary results of this review is now April 9, 2019. Scope of the Order jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES The merchandise subject to the order is certain frozen warmwater shrimp.2 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.

Where assessments are based upon total facts available, including AFA, we will instruct CBP to assess duties at the AFA margin rate. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), because Magnum reported the entered value for all of its U.S. sales, we will calculate importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of the sales for which entered value was reported. Where either the respondent’s weightedaverage dumping margin is zero or de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c), or an importer-specific rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. For the companies which were not selected for individual review, we will assign an assessment rate based on the average 12 of the cash deposit rates calculated for the companies selected for mandatory review (i.e., the Elque Group and Magnum), excluding any which are de minimis or determined entirely on adverse facts available. 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.13 We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this review. jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES Cash Deposit Requirements The following deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for each specific company listed above will be that established in the final results of this review, except if the rate is less than 11 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). rate will be calculated as discussed in the ‘‘Preliminary Results of the Review’’ section, above. 13 See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act. 12 This VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:49 Apr 22, 2019 Jkt 247001 16845 0.50 percent and, therefore, de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), in which case the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not participating in this review, the cash deposit will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recently completed segment; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, or the original less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent segment for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 10.17 percent, the all-others rate made effective by the LTFV investigation.14 These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

duties. If these preliminary results are adopted in the final results 
of this review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. We 
invite all interested parties to comment on these preliminary results.

[[Page 16845]]

of this notice, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the administrative review, Commerce shall 
determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries covered by this review.\11\ We will instruct CBP to assess 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review. 
Where assessments are based upon total facts available, including AFA, 
we will instruct CBP to assess duties at the AFA margin rate.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), because Magnum reported the 
entered value for all of its U.S. sales, we will calculate importer-
specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the 
total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales to 
the total entered value of the sales for which entered value was 
reported. Where either the respondent's weighted-average dumping margin 
is zero or de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c), or an 
importer-specific rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.
    For the companies which were not selected for individual review, we 
will assign an assessment rate based on the average \12\ of the cash 
deposit rates calculated for the companies selected for mandatory 
review (i.e., the Elque Group and Magnum), excluding any which are de 
minimis or determined entirely on adverse facts available. 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.\13\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ This rate will be calculated as discussed in the 
``Preliminary Results of the Review'' section, above.
    \13\ See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the 
final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for each specific 
company listed above will be that established in the final results of 
this review, except if the rate is less than 0.50 percent and, 
therefore, de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), in 
which case the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for previously 
reviewed or investigated companies not participating in this review, 
the cash deposit will continue to be the company-specific rate 
published for the most recently completed segment; (3) if the exporter 
is not a firm covered in this review, or the original less-than-fair-
value (LTFV) investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit 
rate will be the rate established for the most recent segment for the 
manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all 
other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 10.17 percent, the 
all-others rate made effective by the LTFV investigation.\14\ These 
deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.

Than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Frozen Warmwater 
Shrimp from India, 70 FR 5147 (February 1, 2005).

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of 
their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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 the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: April 9, 2019.
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.
