After reviewing the best scientific and commercial data available, including the Status Review Report, we have determined the species does not warrant listing at this time. While the species has declined in abundance, it still occupies its historical range, and population trends indicate subpopulations are stable or increasing in most locations. We conclude that the dwarf seahorse is not currently in danger of extinction throughout all or a significant portion of its range and is not likely to become so within the foreseeable future.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On April 6, 2011, we received a petition from the Center for Biological Diversity to list the dwarf seahorse as threatened or endangered under the ESA. The petition asserted that (1) the present or threatened destruction, modification, or curtailment of habitat or range; (2) overutilization for commercial, recreational, scientific, or educational purposes; (3) inadequacy of existing regulatory mechanisms; and (4) other natural or manmade factors are affecting its continued existence and contributing to the dwarf seahorse’s imperiled status. The petitioner also requested that critical habitat be designated for this species concurrent with listing under the ESA. On May 4, 2012, NMFS published a 90-day finding for dwarf seahorse with our determination that the petition presented substantial scientific and commercial information indicating that the petitioned action may be warranted (77 FR 26478). We also requested scientific and commercial information from the public to inform a status review of the species, as required by E:\FR\FM\28JYN1.SGM 28JYN1

Methodology

    Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 
CFR 351.213.

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    Based on the available record information, Commerce preliminarily 
determines that Fedmet had no shipments during the POR. For additional 
information regarding this determination, see the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum. Consistent with our assessment practice in non-market 
economy (NME) administrative reviews, Commerce is not rescinding this 
review for Fedmet, but intends to complete the review and issue 
appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of the 
review.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment 
of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694, 65694-95 (October 24, 2011); see 
also the ``Assessment Rates'' section, below.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Separate Rates

    Because no other company under review submitted an SRA or SRC, 
Commerce preliminarily determines that these companies have not 
demonstrated their eligibility for a separate rate. For additional 
information, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

China-Wide Entity

    Commerce's policy regarding conditional review of the China-wide 
entity applies to this administrative review.\7\ Under this policy, the 
China-wide entity will not be under review unless a party specifically 
requests, or Commerce self-initiates, a review of the entity. Because 
no party requested a review of the China-wide entity, and we did not 
self-initiate a review, the China-wide entity rate (i.e., 236.00 
percent) is not subject to change as a result of this review.\8\ Aside 
from Fedmet, Commerce considers all other companies for which a review 
was requested \9\ to be part of the China-wide entity. For additional 
information, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

liquidate entries containing subject merchandise exported by the 
companies under review that we determine in the final results to be 
part of the China-wide entity at the China-wide rate of 236.00 percent. 
Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after 
the date of publication of the final results of this review in the 
Federal Register.\14\

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this review for shipments of 
subject merchandise from China entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided by 
sections 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For previously-investigated or 
reviewed Chinese and non-Chinese exporters not listed above that 
received a separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, the 
cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing exporter-specific 
rate; (2) for all Chinese exporters of subject merchandise that have 
not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate 
will be that for the China-wide entity (i.e., 236.00 percent); and (3) 
for all non-Chinese exporters of subject merchandise which have not 
received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate 
applicable to the Chinese exporter that supplied that non-Chinese 
exporter. These 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 315.402(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 antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these preliminary results in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act, and 19 CFR 
351.213(h) and 351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: July 21, 2020.
Jeffrey I. Kessler,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
