Preliminary Results of the Review As a result of this review, we preliminarily determine that weightedaverage dumping margins exist for the respondents for the period February 1, 2020, through January 31, 2021, as follows: Weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) Exporter/producer LNSK Green House Agro Products LLP ..................................

Oral presentations at the hearing will be limited to issues raised in the briefs. If a request for a hearing is made, parties will be notified of the time and date for the hearing.11 An electronically-filed document must be received successfully in its entirety by ACCESS by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on the established deadline. Commerce intends to issue the final results of this administrative review, including the results of its analysis of issues raised in any written briefs, not later than 120 days after the date of publication of this notice, unless otherwise extended.12 Assessment Rates Upon completion of the administrative review, Commerce shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.13 Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), because both respondents reported the entered value for all of their U.S. sales, we will calculate 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. Where either the respondent’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c), or an importer-specific rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. Commerce’s ‘‘automatic assessment’’ will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by LNSK or Royal for which these 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.14 10 See 19 CFR 351.310(c). 19 CFR 351.310(d). 12 See section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. 13 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 14 For a full discussion of this practice, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 11 See PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 For the companies which were not selected for individual review, we will assign an assessment rate based on the review-specific average rate, calculated as noted in the ‘‘Preliminary Results of Review’’ section, above. The final results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by the final results of this review and for future deposits of estimated duties, where applicable.15 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 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 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 will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recently completed segment; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, or the less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent segment for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 10.17 percent, the all-others rate established in the LTFV investigation.16 These deposit requirements, when imposed, Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). 15 See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act. 16 See Notice of Amended Final Determination of Sale at Less Than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India, 70 FR 5147 (February 1, 2005). E:\FR\FM\01MRN1.SGM 01MRN1 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 40 / Tuesday, March 1, 2022 / Notices shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers This notice serves as a preliminary 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 the 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. Dated: February 22, 2022.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On April 1, 2021, based on a timely request for review, in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), Commerce initiated an 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on shrimp from 
India.\1\ This review covers 163 producers and/or exporters of the 
subject merchandise. Commerce selected two mandatory respondents for 
individual examination: LNSK Green House Agro Products LLP (LNSK) and 
Royal Imports and Exports (Royal). For a complete description of the 
events that followed the initiation of this review, see the Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum.\2\

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

Methodology

    Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with sections 
751(a)(1)(B) and (2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). 
Export price is calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. 
NV is calculated in accordance with section 773 of the Act.
    For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
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 
version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly 
at https://access.trade.gov/public/FRNoticesListLayout.aspx. A list

[[Page 11414]]

of the topics discussed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is 
attached as an appendix to this notice.

Preliminary Results of the Review

    As a result of this review, we preliminarily determine that 
weighted-average dumping margins exist for the respondents for the 
period February 1, 2020, through January 31, 2021, as follows:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                               Weighted-
                                                                average
                      Exporter/producer                         dumping
                                                                margin
                                                               (percent)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
LNSK Green House Agro Products LLP..........................        0.00
Royal Imports and Exports...................................        3.01
Companies Not Selected for Individual Review \4\............        3.01
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Review-Specific Average Rate for Companies Not Selected for Individual 
Review

    The exporters or producers not selected for individual review are 
listed in Appendix II.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ Under section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act, the all-others rate 
is normally ``an amount equal to the weighted average of the 
estimated weighted-average dumping margins established for exporters 
and producers individually examined, excluding any margins that are 
zero or de minimis margins, and any margins determined entirely {on 
the basis of facts available{time} .'' Because the margin calculated 
for LNSK in these preliminary results is zero, we have preliminarily 
assigned a dumping margin to these companies based on the rate 
calculated for Royal.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

    An electronically-filed document must be received successfully in

    Commerce intends to issue the final results of this administrative

of this notice, unless otherwise extended.\12\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ See section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the administrative review, Commerce shall 
determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this 
review.\13\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), because both respondents reported 
the entered value for all of their U.S. sales, we will calculate 
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. Where either the respondent's weighted-average dumping 
margin is zero or de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c), 
or an importer-specific rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct 
CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping 
duties.
    Commerce's ``automatic assessment'' will apply to entries of 
subject merchandise during the POR produced by LNSK or Royal for which 
these 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.\14\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \14\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For the companies which were not selected for individual review, we 
will assign an assessment rate based on the review-specific average 
rate, calculated as noted in the ``Preliminary Results of Review'' 
section, above. The final results of this review shall be the basis for 
the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered 
by the final results of this review and for future deposits of 
estimated duties, where applicable.\15\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \15\ See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 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 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 will continue to be the company-specific rate 
published for the most recently completed segment; (3) if the exporter 
is not a firm covered in this review, or the less-than-fair-value 
(LTFV) investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate 
will be the rate established for the most recent segment for the 
manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all 
other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 10.17 percent, the 
all-others rate established in the LTFV investigation.\16\ These 
deposit requirements, when imposed,

[[Page 11415]]

shall remain in effect until further notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \16\ See Notice of Amended Final Determination of Sale at Less 
Than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Frozen Warmwater 
Shrimp from India, 70 FR 5147 (February 1, 2005).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a preliminary 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 the 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.

    Dated: February 22, 2022.
Ryan Majerus,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Policy and Negotiations.
