SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

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 from Brazil for the period of February 1, 2013, through January 31, 2014.[1]

On February 26, 2014, in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.213(b), the Department received a timely request from the Ad Hoc Shrimp Trade Action Committee (the petitioner),[2] a domestic interested party, to conduct an administrative review of the sales of Amazonas Industria Alimenticias S.A. (AMASA); Procesadora del Rio S.A. (PRORIOSA); and Pesquera Veraz S.A. (Pesquera Veraz). The petitioner was the only party to request this administrative review.

On April 1, 2014, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain warmwater shrimp from Brazil with respect to AMASA, PRORIOSA, and Pesquera Veraz.[3]

On April 3, 2014, the petitioner timely withdrew its request for a review of all three companies.[4]

Rescission of Review

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. The petitioner timely withdrew its request for review before the 90-day deadline, and no other party requested an administrative review of the antidumping duty order. Therefore, we are rescinding the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Brazil covering the period February 1, 2013, through January 31, 2014.

Assessment

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

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.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written notification of return/destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.

This notice is published in accordance with section 751 of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
