SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

published a notice of initiation of changed circumstances review to 
consider whether SSIPL is the successor-in-interest to SAFE.\1\ On 
March 5, 2019, we issued a supplemental questionnaire to SSIPL,\2\ and 
we received a response during the same month.\3\

Response (SSIPL March 15, 2019 SQR).

shrimp.\4\ The product is currently classified under the following 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) item numbers:

Memorandum, ``Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India:

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

Preliminary Results

    In this changed circumstances review, pursuant to section 751(b) of 
the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), Commerce conducted a 
successor-in-interest analysis. In making a successor-in-interest 
determination, Commerce examines several factors, including, but not 
limited to, changes in the following: (1) Management; (2) production 
facilities; (3) supplier relationships; and (4) customer base.\5\ While 
no single

[[Page 39810]]

factor or combination of factors will necessarily provide a dispositive 
indication of a successor-in-interest relationship, generally, Commerce 
will consider the new company to be the successor to the previous 
company if the new company's resulting operation is not materially 
dissimilar to that of its predecessor.\6\ Thus, if the record evidence 
demonstrates that, with respect to the production and sale of the 
subject merchandise, the new company operates as the same business 
entity as the predecessor company, Commerce may assign the new company 
the cash deposit rate of its predecessor.\7\

only changed its name and did not change its operations is a 
successor-in-interest to the company before it changed its name.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.216, we preliminarily determine that 
SSIPL is the successor-in-interest to SAFE. Record evidence, as 
submitted by SSIPL, indicates that SSIPL operates as essentially the 
same business entity as SAFE with respect to the subject 
merchandise.\8\ For the complete successor-in-interest analysis, 
including discussion of business proprietary information, refer to the 
accompanying successor-in-interest memorandum.\9\
