Start Supplemental Information
On April 16, 2018, based on timely requests for review for 94 companies by Ad Hoc Shrimp Trade Action Committee (the petitioner),
97 companies by the American Shrimp Processors Association (ASPA),
and by various Vietnamese companies,
Commerce published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Vietnam covering the period February 1, 2017, through January 31, 2018.
On July 11, 2018, Soc Trang Seafood Joint Stock Company withdrew its Start Printed Page 39412request for administrative review.
On July 11, 2018, both the petitioner and ASPA also withdrew their respective requests for an administrative review of Soc Trang Seafood Joint Stock Company and its various name iterations, as listed in the Initiation Notice.
Subsequently, on July 12, 2018, the petitioner and ASPA also withdrew their respective requests for administrative review of Seavina Joint Stock Company and its various name iterations, as listed in the Initiation Notice.
No other party requested a review of Seavina Joint Stock Company.
Partial Rescission of Review
Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), Commerce will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party that requested the review withdraws its request within 90 days of the publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. Because all requests for administrative review of Soc Trang Seafood Joint Stock Company and Seavina Joint Stock Company were withdrawn within 90 days of the date of publication of the Initiation Notice, and no other interested party requested a review of these companies, Commerce is rescinding this review with respect to Soc Trang Seafood Joint Stock Company and Seavina Joint Stock Company, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). The administrative review remains active with respect to all other companies initiated for review.
Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries at a rate equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, during the period February 1, 2017, through January 31, 2018, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). Commerce intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication of this notice in the Federal Register.
This notice serves as a final 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 could result in Commerce's presumption that reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties.
This notice also serves as a final reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return or destruction of APO materials, or conversion to judicial protective order, is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to sanction.
This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
