Methodology

    Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(B) and (2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).

conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. The Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically 
via Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS). ACCESS is available to 
registered users at https://access.trade.gov. In addition, a complete

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.310(c), interested parties who wish to 
request a hearing must submit a written request to the Acting Assistant 
Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, filed electronically via 
ACCESS. An electronically-filed document must be received successfully

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

    Commerce intends to issue the final results of this administrative 
review, including the results of its analysis raised in any written 
briefs, not later than 120 days after the publication date of this 
notice, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, unless otherwise 
extended.\18\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \18\ See section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, Commerce shall determine, and 
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.\19\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \19\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), because Thai Union reported the 
entered value of its U.S. sales, we calculated importer-specific ad 
valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of 
dumping calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of 
the sales for which entered value was reported. Where either the 
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

[[Page 33986]]

rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the 
appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.
    Commerce's ``automatic assessment'' practice will apply to entries 
of subject merchandise during the POR produced by companies included in 
these final results of review for which the reviewed companies did not 
know that the merchandise they sold to the intermediary (e.g., a 
reseller, trading company, or exporter) 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 
company(ies) involved in the transaction.\20\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \20\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP no earlier 
than 35 days after the date of publication of the final results of this 
review in the Federal Register. If a timely summons is filed at the 
U.S. Court of International Trade, the assessment instructions will 
direct CBP not to liquidate relevant entries until the time for parties 
to file a request for a statutory injunction has expired (i.e., within 
90 days of publication).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of shrimp from Thailand 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 the exporter listed above will 
be that established in the final results of this review, except if the 
rate is less than 0.50 percent and, therefore, de minimis within the 
meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), in which case the cash deposit rate 
will be zero; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not 
participating in this review, the cash deposit rate will continue to be 
the company-specific rate published for the most recently-completed 
segment of this proceeding in which the company was reviewed; (3) if 
the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or 
the less-than-fair value (LTFV) investigation, but the manufacturer is, 
then the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most 
recently-completed segment of this proceeding for the manufacturer of 
subject merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other 
manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 5.34 percent, the all-
others rate made effective by the Section 129 Determination.\21\ These 
deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a 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 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 results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: June 21, 2021.
James Maeder,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations.
