DOC Issues Amended Final Determination in Shrimp Antidumping Investigations
Today the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) announced that it has issued an amended final determinations in the antidumping duty investigations on imports of certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Brazil, Ecuador, India, the People's Republic of China (PRC), the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (Vietnam) and Thailand. The amended final determination resulted from the correction of clerical errors that were made by DOC in calculating the dumping margins for several respondents.
In addition, DOC concluded that six companies (four from the PRC and two from Vietnam) were incorrectly denied separate rate status. As a result, imports produced or exported by these companies will be subject to the final amended "separate rate" of 53.68% for imports from the PRC and 4.57% for imports from Vietnam. DOC's amended final determination will be published in the Federal Register.
