Final Determination of No Shipments In the Preliminary Results, Commerce preliminarily determined that Golden Quality Seafood Corporation, Nam Viet Corporation, Hoa Phat Seafood ImportExport and Processing J.S.C., To Chau Joint Stock Company, Fatifish Company Limited, and Godaco Seafood Joint Stock Company had no shipments during the POR. Consistent with Commerce’s refinement to its assessment practice in non-market economy (NME) cases, we completed the review with respect to the abovenamed companies.7 Following the publication of the Preliminary Results, we received no comments from interested parties regarding these companies, nor has any party submitted record evidence which would call our preliminary no shipment determination into question. Therefore, for these final results, we continue to find that these six companies did not have any reviewable transactions during the POR.

    The product covered by the order is frozen fish fillets, including 
regular, shank, and strip fillets and portions thereof, whether or not 
breaded or marinated, of the species Pangasius Bocourti, Pangasius 
Hypophthalmus (also known as Pangasius Pangasius) and Pangasius

Analysis of Comments Received

    We addressed all issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs 
filed by interested parties in the Issues and Decision Memorandum. A 
list of the issues parties raised is attached as Appendix I to this 
notice. The Issues and Decision Memorandum is a public document and is 
on file in the Central Records Unit (CRU), Room B8024 of the main 
Commerce building, as well as electronically via Enforcement and 
Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic 
Service System (ACCESS). ACCESS is available to registered users at 
http://access.trade.gov. In addition, a complete version of the Issues 
and Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/index.html. The signed Issues and Decision 
Memorandum and the electronic version of the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum are identical in content.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on a review of the record and comments received from 
interested parties, and for the reasons explained in the Issues and 
Decision Memorandum, we applied certain changes to NTSF's antidumping 
margin. Accordingly, for these final results, Commerce also updated the 
antidumping margin assigned to the non-selected separate rate company, 
i.e., Can Tho Import

[[Page 23757]]

Export Seafood Joint Stock Company (Caseamex). For a discussion of the 
above-referenced changes, see the ``Changes Since the Preliminary 
Results'' section of the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, Commerce preliminarily determined that 
Golden Quality Seafood Corporation, Nam Viet Corporation, Hoa Phat 
Seafood Import-Export and Processing J.S.C., To Chau Joint Stock 
Company, Fatifish Company Limited, and Godaco Seafood Joint Stock 
Company had no shipments during the POR. Consistent with Commerce's 
refinement to its assessment practice in non-market economy (NME) 
cases, we completed the review with respect to the above-named 
companies.\7\ Following the publication of the Preliminary Results, we 
received no comments from interested parties regarding these companies, 
nor has any party submitted record evidence which would call our 
preliminary no shipment determination into question. Therefore, for 
these final results, we continue to find that these six companies did 
not have any reviewable transactions during the POR. As noted in the 
``Assessment Rates'' section below, Commerce intends to issue 
appropriate instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
for the above-named companies based on the final results of this 
review.

of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694, 65694-95 (October 24, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Separate Rates

    In our Preliminary Results, we denied International Development and 
Investment Corporation (IDI) a separate rate.\8\ Based on information 
on the record, and for the reasons explained in the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum, we continue to find that IDI is not eligible for a separate 
rate.\9\ Thus, we find IDI to be part of the Vietnam-wide entity.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ See Preliminary Results, 84 FR at 56421.
    \9\ See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 6.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We continue to find that the non-individually-examined exporter 
Caseamex and individually-examined respondent NTSF have demonstrated 
eligibility for separate rates. As noted below, we have assigned 
Caseamex the rate established for NTSF.

Vietnam-Wide Entity

    In the Preliminary Results, Commerce found that certain companies 
for which a review was requested did not establish eligibility for a 
separate rate.\10\ We have not received any information since the 
issuance of the Preliminary Results that provides a basis for 
reconsidering this preliminary finding. Therefore, Commerce continues 
to find that these companies are part of the Vietnam-wide entity.\11\

Final Results of the Review

administrative review are as follows:

determined that it would calculate per-unit assessment and cash 
deposit rates for all future reviews. See Certain Frozen Fish 
Fillets from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Final Results of

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act of 1930, as amended 
(the Act), and 19 CFR 351.212(b), Commerce has determined, and CBP 
shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject 
merchandise in accordance with the final results of this review. 
Commerce intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly 
to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this 
administrative review.
    We calculated importer (or customer)-specific assessment rates for 
merchandise subject to this review on a per-unit (i.e., per-kilogram) 
basis. Specifically, we calculated a per-unit assessment rate by 
aggregating the antidumping duties due for all U.S. sales to that 
importer (or customer) and divided this amount by the total quantity 
sold to that importer (or customer) during the POR. 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 calculate 
importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem ratios based on the 
estimated entered value. If an importer (or customer)-specific 
assessment rate is de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent), Commerce 
will instruct CBP to liquidate that importer's (or customer's) entries 
of subject merchandise without regard to antidumping duties. Pursuant 
to Commerce's assessment practice, for entries that were not reported 
in the U.S. sales database submitted by NTSF during this review, 
Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the Vietnam-
wide entity rate.
    For the separate rate company that was not selected for individual 
review, i.e., Caseamex, we assigned the company the margin of the 
mandatory respondent, NTSF. Where we determined that an exporter under 
review had no shipments of the subject merchandise to the United States 
during the POR, any suspended entries that entered during the POR under 
that exporter's case number will be liquidated at the Vietnam-wide 
rate.\13\ Additionally, we intend to instruct CBP to liquidate entries 
containing subject merchandise exported by the Vietnam-wide entity at 
the Vietnam-wide rate.

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 subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided for by 
section 751(a)(2) of the Act: (1) For the exporters listed above, the 
cash deposit rate will be the rate established in the final results of 
review; (2) for previously investigated or reviewed Vietnamese and non-
Vietnamese exporters not listed above that have separate rates, the 
cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate 
published for the most recent period; (3) for all Vietnamese exporters 
of subject merchandise which have not been found to be entitled to a 
separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the Vietnam-wide rate of 
$2.39 per kilogram; and (4) for all non-Vietnamese exporters of subject 
merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit 
rate will be the rate applicable to the Vietnamese exporters that 
supplied that non-Vietnamese exporter. The deposit requirements, when 
imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Disclosure

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed regarding these 
final results within five days of the date of

[[Page 23758]]

publication of this notice to parties in this proceeding in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a final 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 POR. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in Commerce's presumption that reimbursement 
of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled 
antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Order

    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.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these final results of administrative 
review in accordance with sections 751(a)(l) and 777(i) of the Act, and 
19 CFR 351.221(b)(5).

    Dated: April 20, 2020.
Jeffrey I. Kessler,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
