Kate Johnson at (202) 482-4929 (Brazil), Henry Almond at (202) 482-0049 (India), and Holly Phelps at (202) 482-0656 (Thailand), AD/CVD Operations, Office 2, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230.

Background

During the anniversary month of February 2011, the Department received timely requests for administrative reviews of the antidumping duty orders on shrimp from Brazil, India, and Thailand from the Ad Hoc Shrimp Trade Action Committee (hereinafter, Domestic Producers), the American Shrimp Processors Association (ASPA), and certain individual companies, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b). The Department is now initiating administrative reviews of these orders covering multiple companies for Brazil, India, and Thailand, as noted in the “Initiation of Reviews” section of this notice.

All deadlines for the submission of various types of information, certifications, or comments or actions by the Department discussed below refer to the number of calendar days from the applicable starting time.

Request To Defer Review

In their requests for administrative review, the following Thai companies requested that the Department defer the initiation of the review for one year, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(c): Marine Gold Products Co., Ltd. (Marine Gold); Pakfood Public Company Limited and its affiliated subsidiaries (collectively, “Pakfood”); [1] and Thai Royal Frozen Food Co., Ltd. (Thai Royal). None of the parties provided any justification for its deferral request.

The Department's regulations, as set forth in 19 CFR 351.213(c)(1)(i) and (ii), provide that the Department may defer the initiation of an antidumping duty administrative review, in whole or in part, for one year if: (1) The request for review was accompanied by a request to defer the review; and (2) neither the exporter or producer for which the deferral is requested, the importer of subject merchandise from that exporter or producer, or a domestic interested party objected to the deferral.

On March 15, 2011, the Domestic Producers and the ASPA submitted timely comments objecting to the deferral of the administrative review with respect to each of the three companies named above. The Domestic Producers also objected to the deferral of review for any other company for which they requested that the Department conduct a review. Because we received a timely objection to deferral from a domestic interested party pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(c)(1)(ii) and (2), we have not deferred the instant review with respect to Marine Gold, Pakfood, or Thai Royal.

Notice of No Sales

If a producer or exporter named in this notice of initiation had no exports, sales, or entries during the POR, it should notify the Department in writing within 60 days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. All submissions must be made in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303 and are subject to verification in accordance with section 782(i) of the Act. Six copies of the submission should be submitted to the Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, International Trade Administration, Room 1870, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230. Further, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303(f)(3)(ii), a copy of each request must be served on every party on the Department's service list.

Respondent Selection

In the event the Department limits the number of respondents for individual examination in these administrative reviews, the Department intends to select respondents based on U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data for U.S. imports during the POR. We intend to release the CBP data under Administrative Protective Order (APO) to all parties having an APO within seven days of publication of this initiation notice and to make our decision regarding respondent selection within 21 days of publication of this Federal Register notice. The Department invites comments regarding the CBP data and respondent selection within five days of placement of the CBP data on the record of the applicable review.

Request for Review of Non-Existent Company

We have not initiated an administrative review of the order on shrimp from India with respect to Vaibhav Sea Foods because in the 2004-2006 administrative review the Department determined that this company no longer exists. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India: Final Results and Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 72 FR 52055, (Sept. 12, 2007) Start Printed Page 18158(2004-2006 Indian Shrimp Final Results).

Initiation of Reviews

In accordance with section 751(a)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), we are initiating administrative reviews of the antidumping duty orders on shrimp from Brazil, India and Thailand. We intend to issue the final results of these reviews by February 29, 2012.
