SUMMARY: Based on affirmative final determinations by the Department of Commerce (Commerce) and the International Trade Commission (the ITC), Commerce is issuing countervailing duty orders on glycine from India and the People’s Republic of China (China).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background In accordance with sections 705(d) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.210(c), Commerce published its affirmative final determinations in the countervailing duty investigations of glycine from India and China on May 1, 2019.1 On June 14, 2019, the ITC notified Commerce of its final affirmative determinations that an industry in the United States is 1 See Countervailing Duty Investigation of Glycine from India: Affirmative Final Determination, 84 FR 18482 (May 1, 2019); see also Glycine from the People’s Republic of China: Final Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determination, 84 FR 18489 (May 1, 2019).

For a complete description of the scope of the orders, see the Appendix to this notice. Countervailing Duty Orders On June 14, 2019, in accordance with sections 705(b)(1)(A)(i) and 705(d) of the Act, the ITC notified Commerce of its final determinations that an industry in the United States is materially injured by reason of imports of glycine from India and China.3 Therefore, in accordance with sections 705(c)(2) and 706 of the Act, we are issuing these countervailing duty orders. Because the ITC determined that imports of glycine from India and China are materially injuring a U.S. industry, unliquidated entries of such merchandise from India and China, entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, are subject to the assessment of countervailing duties. As a result of the ITC’s final affirmative determinations, in accordance with section 706(a)(1) of the Act, Commerce will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess, upon further instruction by Commerce, countervailing duties on unliquidated entries of glycine from India and China. Countervailing duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of glycine from India and China entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after September 4, 2018, the date of publication of the Preliminary Determinations,4 but will not include entries occurring after the expiration of the provisional measures period and before publication in the Federal Register of the ITC’s injury determination, as further described below. Suspension of Liquidation In accordance with section 706 of the Act, Commerce will instruct CBP to reinstitute the suspension of liquidation of subject merchandise (i.e., glycine from India and China), effective on the date of publication of the ITC’s final 2 See ITC Letter, dated June 14, 2019 (ITC Letter).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On May 2, 2019, based on timely requests for review for 107 
companies by the Ad Hoc Shrimp Trade Action Committee (the 
petitioner),\1\ 185 companies by the American Shrimp Processors 
Association (ASPA),\2\ and various Vietnamese companies,\3\ Commerce 
published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of an 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen 
warmwater shrimp from Vietnam covering the period February 1, 2018, 
through January 31, 2019.\4\

    \1\ See the Petitioner's Request for Administrative Review, 
dated February 27, 2019.
    \2\ See ASPA's Request for Administrative Review, dated February 
27, 2019.

Administrative Reviews, 84 FR 18777 (May 2, 2019) (Initiation 
Notice).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On May 31, 2019, Commerce published in the Federal Register a 
notice of rescission, in part, wherein Commerce rescinded the 
administrative review for 40 companies, based on timely-filed 
withdrawals of review requests from the petitioner, ASPA, and certain

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

    On May 30, 2019, and May 31, 2019, the petitioner and ASPA withdrew 
their respective review requests, in part, for an additional five 
Vietnamese exporters initiated for review.\6\ On May 30, 2019, Quoc 
Viet Seaproducts Processing Trade and Import-Export Co., Ltd. withdrew 
its review requests.\7\ On May 31, 2019, Soc Trang Seafood Joint Stock

Submissions, ``Partial Withdrawal of Review Requests,'' and 
``Corrections to Partial Withdrawal of Review Requests,'' both dated 
May 31, 2019. Of these five companies, only two of them had also 
requested an administrative review; thus, three of these companies 
had only been requested for review by the petitioner and ASPA (Bien 
Dong Seafood Co., Ltd.; NGO BROS Seaproducts Import-Export One 
Member Company Limited; and Seavina Joint Stock Company).

also ASPA's Submission, ``Partial Withdrawal of Review Requests,''

requested for review by the petitioner and ASPA; thus, no other 
review requests remain on the record for Au Vung One Seafood 
Processing Import & Export Joint Stock Company, Au Vung Two Seafood 
Processing Import & Export Joint Stock Company, and Thanh Doan Sea 
Products Import & Export Processing Joint Stock Company.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

companies also included those companies' name variations, as listed in 
the Initiation Notice and the attached Appendix. All review requests 
for the company names listed in the Appendix have been withdrawn; no 
other party requested a review of these exporters.
    Two additional companies withdrew their review requests on May 30, 
2019.\10\ However, because the petitioner and ASPA did not withdraw 
their respective review requests for these two companies, the two 
companies remain under active review.

Stock Company and Trong Nhan Seafood Company Limited's Submission, 
``Withdrawal of Entry of Appearance and Review Request,'' dated May

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

Partial Rescission of Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), Commerce will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party that requested 
the review withdraws its request within 90 days of the publication of 
the notice of initiation of the requested review. Because the 
petitioner, ASPA, and the individual companies all withdrew their 
requests for administrative review within 90 days of the date of 
publication of the Initiation Notice, and no other interested party 
requested a review of these companies, Commerce is rescinding this 
review with respect to the companies identified in the Appendix, in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).

Assessment

    Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to 
assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries at a rate equal to 
the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time 
of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, during the 
period February 1, 2018, through January 31,

[[Page 29173]]

2019, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). Commerce intends to 
issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the 
publication of this notice in the Federal Register, if appropriate.

Notifications

    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 the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.
    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which 
continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of 
the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return or 
destruction of APO materials, or conversion to judicial protective 
order, is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and 
terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to sanction.
    This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 
751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 
CFR 351.213(d)(4).
