On June 13, 2018, CAPL requested that Commerce conduct an expedited changed circumstances review, pursuant to section 751(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), 19 CFR 351.216(b), and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(3), to confirm that CAPL is the successor-in-interest to Coastal Aqua for purposes of determining antidumping duty cash deposits and liabilities. In its submission, CAPL explained that Coastal Aqua undertook a business reorganization and transferred its shrimp business to CAPL.
On August 2, 2018, Commerce initiated this changed circumstances review and published the notice of preliminary results, determining that CAPL is the successor-in-interest to Coastal Aqua.
In the Initiation and Preliminary Results, we provided all interested parties with an opportunity to comment and request a public hearing regarding our preliminary finding that CAPL is the successor-in-interest to Coastal Aqua.
We received no comments or requests for a public hearing from interested parties within the time period set forth in the Initiation and Preliminary Results.
Scope of the Order
The merchandise subject to the order is certain frozen warmwater shrimp.
The product is currently classified under the following Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) item numbers: 0306.17.00.03, 0306.17.00.06, 0306.17.00.09, 0306.17.00.12, 0306.17.00.15, 0306.17.00.18, 0306.17.00.21, 0306.17.00.24, 0306.17.00.27, 0306.17.00.40, 1605.21.10.30, and 1605.29.10.10. Although the HTSUS numbers are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written product description remains dispositive.
Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review
For the reasons stated in the Initiation and Preliminary Results, and because we received no comments from interested parties to the contrary, Commerce continues to find that CAPL is the successor-in-interest to Coastal Aqua. As a result of this determination and consistent with established practice, we find that CAPL should receive the cash deposit rate previously assigned to Coastal Aqua in the most recently-completed review of the antidumping duty order on shrimp from India.
Consequently, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Start Printed Page 49910Protection to suspend liquidation of all shipments of subject merchandise produced or exported by CAPL and entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of this notice in the Federal Register at 1.35 percent, which is the current antidumping duty cash-deposit rate for Coastal Aqua.
This cash deposit requirement shall remain in effect until further notice.
We are issuing this determination and publishing these final results and notice in accordance with sections 751(b)(1) and 777(i)(1) and (2) of the Act, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.216 and 351.221(c)(3).
