SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On February 8, 2019, Commerce published in the Federal Register a notice of ‘‘Opportunity to Request Administrative Review’’ of the antidumping duty order on shrimp from China for the period of review February 1, 2018, through January 31, 2019.1 Pursuant to requests from interested parties, on May 2, 2019, in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), Commerce initiated an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on shrimp from China with respect to 102 companies.2 On June 10, 2019, Ad Hoc Shrimp Trade Action Committee (the petitioner) timely withdrew its requests for an administrative review of all of the companies for which it had requested a review.3 1 See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 84 FR 2816 (February 8, 2019). 2 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 84 FR 18777 (May 2, 2019). 3 See Petitioner’s Letter, ‘‘Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the People’s Republic of China: Domestic Producers’ Withdrawal of Review Requests,’’ dated June 10, 2019. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:26 Oct 16, 2019 Jkt 250001 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 date of the notice of initiation of the requested review. The petitioner timely withdrew all of its review requests. Because Commerce received no other requests for review for 14 of the companies for which a review was initiated, we are rescinding this review of shrimp from China for the period February 1, 2018, through January 31, 2019, in part, with respect to these 14 entities, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).

The instant review will continue with respect to the remaining companies for which a review was initiated. Assessment Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For the companies for which this review is rescinded, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit rate of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). Commerce intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice in the Federal Register.

A list of topics included in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is included in the Appendix to this notice. Scope of the Order The scope of this order covers certain welded carbon-quality light-walled steel pipe and tube, of rectangular (including square) cross section, having a wall thickness of less than 4 mm. The term carbon-quality steel includes both carbon steel and alloy steel which contains only small amounts of alloying elements. Specifically, the term carbonquality includes products in which none of the elements listed below exceeds the quantity by weight respectively indicated; 1.80 percent of manganese, or 2.25 percent of silicon, or 1.00 percent of copper, or 0.50 percent of aluminum, or 1.25 percent of chromium, or 0.30 percent of cobalt, or 0.40 percent of lead, or 1.25 percent of nickel, or 0.30 percent of tungsten, or 0.10 percent of molybdenum, or 0.10 percent of niobium, or 0.15 percent of vanadium, or 0.15 percent of zirconium. The description of carbon-quality is intended to identify carbon-quality products within the scope. The weldedcarbon quality rectangular pipe and tube subject to the order is currently classified under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings 7306.61.50.00 and 7306.61.70.60. This tariff classification is provided for convenience and Customs purposes; however, the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. Methodology Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with sections 751(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Export price was calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Normal value was calculated in accordance with section 773 of the Act. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. Preliminary Determination of No Shipments Prior to the issuance of the questionnaire, FASEMEX reported that it made no sales of subject merchandise during the POR.7 On November 9, 2018, we placed the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) inquiry instructions on the record that we sent to CBP regarding 7 See PO 00000 FASEMEX No Shipments Letter. Frm 00017 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 FASEMEX’s statement of no shipments.8 We received no information from CBP contrary to the statements of no shipments from FASEMEX. Consistent with our practice,9 we are not preliminarily rescinding the review with respect to FASEMEX. Rather, we will complete the review for FASEMEX and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of this review.

Assessment Rates For any individually examined respondents whose weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent), we will calculate importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).18 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 not zero or de minimis. If a respondent’s weightedaverage dumping margin is zero or de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), or an importer-specific rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. The final results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by this review where applicable. Regarding entries of subject merchandise during the period of review that were produced by Maquilacero and Regiopytsa and for which they did not know that the merchandise was destined for the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate un-reviewed entries at the allothers rate of 3.76 percent, as established in the less-than-fair-value investigation, if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.19 For a full discussion of this matter, see Assessment Policy Notice.20 In accordance with 19 CFR 356.8, we intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP on or after 41 days after publication of the final results of this review.

Scope of the Order

    The scope of this order covers certain welded carbon-quality light-
walled steel pipe and tube, of rectangular (including square) cross 
section, having a wall thickness of less than 4 mm. The term carbon-
quality steel includes both carbon steel and alloy steel which contains 
only small amounts of alloying elements. Specifically, the term carbon-
quality includes products in which none of the elements listed below 
exceeds the quantity by weight respectively indicated; 1.80 percent of 
manganese, or 2.25 percent of silicon, or 1.00 percent of copper, or 
0.50 percent of aluminum, or 1.25 percent of chromium, or 0.30 percent 
of cobalt, or 0.40 percent of lead, or 1.25 percent of nickel, or 0.30 
percent of tungsten, or 0.10 percent of molybdenum, or 0.10 percent of 
niobium, or 0.15 percent of vanadium, or 0.15 percent of zirconium.
    The description of carbon-quality is intended to identify carbon-
quality products within the scope. The welded-carbon quality 
rectangular pipe and tube subject to the order is currently classified 
under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) 
subheadings 7306.61.50.00 and 7306.61.70.60. This tariff classification 
is provided for convenience and Customs purposes; however, the written 
description of the scope of the order is dispositive.

Methodology

    Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with sections 
751(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Export price 
was calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. Normal value 
was calculated in accordance with section 773 of the Act. For a full 
description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    Prior to the issuance of the questionnaire, FASEMEX reported that 
it made no sales of subject merchandise during the POR.\7\ On November 
9, 2018, we placed the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) inquiry 
instructions on the record that we sent to CBP regarding FASEMEX's 
statement of no shipments.\8\ We received no information from CBP 
contrary to the statements of no shipments from FASEMEX. Consistent 
with our practice,\9\ we are not preliminarily rescinding the review 
with respect to FASEMEX. Rather, we will complete the review for 
FASEMEX and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final 
results of this review.

Assessment Rates

    For any individually examined respondents whose weighted-average 
dumping margin is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent), we will 
calculate importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on 
the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer's 
examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).\18\ 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 not zero or de minimis. If a 
respondent's weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis 
within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), or an importer-specific 
rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the 
appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. The final 
results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of 
antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by this review 
where applicable.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \18\ In these preliminary results, Commerce applied the 
assessment rate calculation methodology 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).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Regarding entries of subject merchandise during the period of 
review that were produced by Maquilacero and Regiopytsa and for which 
they did not know that the merchandise was destined for the United 
States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate un-reviewed entries at the 
all-others rate of 3.76 percent, as established in the less-than-fair-
value investigation, if there is no rate for the intermediate 
company(ies) involved in the transaction.\19\ For a full discussion of 
this matter, see Assessment Policy Notice.\20\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \19\ See Order, 73 FR at 45405.
    \20\ See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003) 
(Assessment Policy Notice).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In accordance with 19 CFR 356.8, we intend to issue liquidation 
instructions to CBP on or after 41 days after publication of the final 
results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review 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 equal to the weighted-average dumping 
margin established in the final results of this administrative review; 
(2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not listed above, 
the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate 
published for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding in 
which they were reviewed; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in 
this review, a prior review, or in the investigation but the producer 
is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most 
recently completed segment of this proceeding for the producer of the 
merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or 
exporters will continue to be the all-others rate of 3.76 percent. 
These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect 
until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also 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 the Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: October 10, 2019.
Jeffrey I. Kessler,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
