Background Back to Top
On February 3, 2014, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of “Opportunity to Request Administrative Review” of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp (shrimp) from Thailand for the period of February 1, 2013, through January 31, 2014.  During the anniversary month of February 2014, the Department received timely requests, in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.213(b), for an administrative review of this antidumping duty order from the Ad Hoc Shrimp Trade Action Committee (the petitioner), the American Shrimp Processors Association (ASPA), and certain individual companies.  On April 2, 2014, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation listing the 163 companies for which the Department received timely requests for review. 
On July 1, 2014, the petitioner, ASPA, and individual Thai shrimp companies withdrew all requests for an administrative review. 
Rescission of Review Back to Top
Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party that requested a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of notice of initiation of the requested review. All parties requesting 2013-2014 administrative reviews of the antidumping duty order of shrimp from Thailand timely withdrew their requests for review by the 90-day deadline. Therefore, we are rescinding the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Thailand covering the period February 1, 2013, through January 31, 2014.
Assessment Back to Top
The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. Antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register.
Notification to Importers Back to Top
This notice serves as the only reminder to importers of their responsibility, under 19 CFR 351.402(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 may result in the presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.
