AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce.

DATES: Effective Date: October 18, 2012.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Toni Dach, AD/CVD Operations, Office 9, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-1655.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On September 11, 2012, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') published in the Federal Register the final results of the sixth administrative review of the antidumping duty order of frozen warmwater shrimp from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (``Vietnam'').\1\

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

\1\ See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Final Results and Final Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 77 FR 55800 (September 11, 2012) (``Final Results'').

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

On September 17, 2012, the Minh Phu Group,\2\ Phu Cuong Jostoco Seafood Corporation, Thuan Phuoc Seafoods and Trading Corporation, and UTXI Aquatic Products Processing Corporation, collectively referred to here as ``Vietnamese Respondents,'' filed timely allegations that the Department made various ministerial errors in the Final Results and requested, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224, that the Department correct the alleged ministerial errors. No other parties in this proceeding submitted comments on the Department's final margin calculations.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

\2\ Minh Phu Seafood Corporation, Minh Qui Seafood Co., Ltd. and Minh Phat Seafood Co., Ltd.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Based upon our analysis of the comments and allegations of ministerial errors, we made changes to the antidumping duty margin calculation for Minh Phu Group. Additionally, we made corrections to the exporter company names for the following: (1) UTXI Aquatic Products Processing Corporation; (2) Thuan Phuoc Seafoods and Trading Corporation; and (3) Phu Cuong Jostoco Seafood Corporation. Furthermore, as a result of correcting the clerical errors in the antidumping margin calculation for Minh Phu Group, the antidumping margin for the separate rate respondents was also revised because the separate rate margin was derived from the simple average of the margins of the Minh Phu Group and the Nha Trang Group.\3\

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

\3\ Nha Trang Seaproduct Company, NT Seafoods Corporation, Nhatrang Seafoods--F89 Joint Stock Company, and NTSF Seafoods Joint Stock Company.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

In the Preliminary Results,\4\ pursuant to the withdrawal of the request for review of BIM Seafood Joint Stock Company (``BIM Seafood''), the Department preliminarily rescinded this review with respect to BIM Seafood. Subsequent to the Final Results, the Department discovered that we had inadvertently failed to include the final rescission for BIM Seafood in the Final Results. Therefore, we are also rescinding this review with respect to BIM Seafood.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

\4\ See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Preliminary Results of Administrative Review, 77 FR 13547 (March 7, 2012) (``Preliminary Results'').

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

For a full description of the products covered by the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Vietnam, see Memorandum to Paul Piquado, from Christian Marsh, regarding ``Sixth Antidumping Administrative Review of Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Ministerial Error and Correction Memorandum,'' dated concurrently with this notice (``Ministerial Errors and Correction Memo'').

Amended Final Results

The Act defines ``ministerial error'' as including ``errors in addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical errors resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any other type of unintentional error which the administering authority considers ministerial.'' \5\ After analyzing the Vietnamese Respondents' comments, we have determined, in accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e), that we made certain ministerial errors in our calculations for the final results with respect to our calculation of freight for the Minh Phu Group and certain typographical errors for various exporter company names.\6\

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

\5\ See section 751(h) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act'').

\6\ See Ministerial Errors and Correction Memo.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Because we have revised the antidumping duty margin for Minh Phu Group, we are also revising the antidumping duty margin for the separate rate respondents because the separate rate margin for those companies was calculated as the simple average margin for Minh Phu Group and Nha Trang Group. In accordance with section 751(h) of the Act, we are amending the final results of the administrative review of certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Vietnam.

The dumping margins for the period of review for these amended final results are as follows:
