On January 27, 2004, the Department initiated the antidumping duty investigations of certain frozen and canned warmwater shrimp from Brazil, Ecuador, India, Thailand, the People's Republic of China and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.
On July 16, 2004, the Department published the Preliminary Determination,
wherein we assigned a separate rate margin of 49.09 percent to 21 non-selected companies eligible for a separate rate. Subsequently, we amended the Preliminary Determination to include two additional non-examined companies to which we granted separate rate status.
On December 8, 2004, the Department published the Final Determination and on February 1, 2005, the Department published the Amended Final 1 and Order, assigning a final separate rate of 53.68 percent to 39 companies to which we granted separate rate status. On August 17, 2006, the Department published a second amended final determination, wherein we granted separate rate status to an additional 11 companies which were not granted a separate rate in the Final Determination or the Amended Final 1 and Order.
Of all the companies to which we granted separate rate status in Amended Final 1 and Order and Amended Final 2, 29 companies (the “SR companies”) are plaintiffs subject to this Remand Opinion and Order. After the issuance of the Amended Final 1 and Order, the Department's Final Determination was challenged at the CIT by the mandatory respondents and was subsequently remanded to the Department for redeterminations.
The resulting recalculations of the mandatory respondents' investigation dumping margins were reduced to 5.07 percent, 7.20 percent, and 8.45 percent.
Consequently, as a result of the SR companies' litigation, in the Remand Opinion and Order the Department recalculated the weighted-average margin assigned to the SR companies based on the revised mandatory respondents' investigation dumping margins.
On September 11, 2013, the Department released the draft redetermination of remand and invited interested parties to comment. The Department received no comments on the draft redetermination 
and issued Start Printed Page 13039the unchanged Beihai Final Remand Redetermination on September 26, 2013. No party contested the Department's remand redetermination. On February 18, 2014, the CIT affirmed all aspects of the Department's remand redetermination.
In its decision in Timken, 893 F.2d at 341, as clarified by Diamond Sawblades, the CAFC has held that, pursuant to section 516A(e) of the Act, the Department must publish a notice of a court decision that is not “in harmony” with a Department determination and must suspend liquidation of entries pending a “conclusive” court decision. The CIT's February 18, 2014, judgment sustaining the Beihai Final Remand Redetermination constitutes a final decision of that court that is not in harmony with the Final Determination, Amended Final 1 & Order, and Amended Final 2. This notice is published in fulfillment of the publication requirements of Timken. Accordingly, the Department will continue the suspension of liquidation of the subject merchandise pending the expiration of the period of appeal or, if appealed, pending a final and conclusive court decision. The cash deposit rate will remain the company-specific rate established for the subsequent and most recent period during which the respondent was reviewed.
