SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On February 8, 2019, Commerce published in the Federal Register a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the CVD order on solar products from China for the POR.1 On February 25, 2019, Shenzhen Portable Electronic Technology Co., Ltd. (Shenzhen Technology) a Chinese exporter of the subject merchandise covered by the underlying CVD order, timely requested a review for its own POR entries of subject merchandise.2 On February 28, 2019, Suniva, Inc. (Suniva), a domestic producer of subject merchandise, timely requested a review of 12 companies, one of which was Shenzhen Technology.3 Shenzhen Technology and Suniva each filed its request for review in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.213(b). No other interested party requested an administrative review of any company for this segment of the proceeding. Based on the requests filed by Shenzhen Technology and Suniva, and in accordance with section 751(a) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), on May 2, 2019, Commerce initiated an administrative review of the CVD order on solar products from China covering the POR.4 On May 2, 2019, Suniva timely withdrew its request for the administrative review of all the companies for which it requested an administrative review; 5 Shenzhen Technology timely withdrew its request 1 See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 84 FR 2816 (February 8, 2019). 2 See Shenzhen Technology’s Letter, ‘‘Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Products from the People’s Republic of China—Request for Administrative Review,’’ dated February 25, 2019. 3 See Suniva’s Letter, ‘‘Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Products from the People’s Republic of China: Request for Administrative Review,’’ dated February 28, 2019. 4 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 84 FR 18777 (May 2, 2019). 5 See Suniva’s Letter, ‘‘Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Products from the People’s Republic of China: Withdraw of Request of Administrative Review,’’ dated (May 2, 2019).

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) determines that certain frozen warmwater shrimp (shrimp) from India is being, or is likely to be, sold in the United States at less than normal value during the period of review (POR) February 1, 2017 through January 31, 2018. AGENCY: On April 23, 2019, Commerce published the Preliminary Results.1 On May 22 and 23, 2019, we received case briefs from the Elque Group and Magnum, respectively. On May 28, 2019, we received a rebuttal brief from the petitioner.2 Scope of the Order Commerce shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), because Magnum reported the entered value for all its U.S. sales, we calculated 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. To determine whether the duty assessment rates are de minimis, in accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we calculated importerspecific ad valorem ratios based on the entered value. For the companies which were not selected for individual examination, we used, as the assessment rate, the cash deposit rate assigned to Magnum, in accordance with our practice.5 Commerce’s ‘‘automatic assessment’’ practice will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Magnum for which it did not know that the merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate Final Results of the Review Commerce is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on shrimp from India. This 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 producers/exporters which were not selected for individual examination are listed in the ‘‘Final Results of the Review’’ section of this notice.
