The scope of this order includes certain frozen warm-water shrimp and prawns, whether  (ocean harvested) or farm-raised (produced by aquaculture), head-on or head-off, shell-on or peeled, tail-on or tail-off, deveined or not deveined, cooked or raw, or otherwise processed in frozen form.

Tails in this context means the tail fan, which includes the telson and the uropods.

The frozen warm-water shrimp and prawn products included in the scope of this order, regardless of definitions in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), are products which are processed from warm-water shrimp and prawns through freezing and which are sold in any count size.

The products described above may be processed from any species of warm-water shrimp and prawns. Warm-water shrimp and prawns are generally classified in, but are not limited to, the Penaeidae family. Some examples of the farmed and wild-caught warm-water species include, but are not limited to, white-leg shrimp (Penaeus vannemei), banana prawn (Penaeus merguiensis), fleshy prawn (Penaeus chinensis), giant river prawn (Macrobrachium rosenbergii), giant tiger prawn (Penaeus monodon), redspotted shrimp (Penaeus brasiliensis), southern brown shrimp (Penaeus subtilis), southern pink shrimp (Penaeus notialis), southern rough shrimp (Trachypenaeus curvirostris), southern white shrimp (Penaeus schmitti), blue shrimp (Penaeus stylirostris), western white shrimp (Penaeus occidentalis), and Indian white prawn (Penaeus indicus). Frozen shrimp and prawns that are packed with marinade, spices or sauce are included in the scope of this order. In addition, food preparations, which are not prepared meals, that contain more than 20 percent by weight of shrimp or prawn are also included in the scope of this order.

Excluded from the scope are: 1) breaded shrimp and prawns (HTSUS subheading 1605.20.10.20); 2) shrimp and prawns generally classified in the Pandalidae family and commonly referred to as coldwater shrimp, in any state of processing; 3) fresh shrimp and prawns whether shell-on or peeled (HTSUS subheadings 0306.23.00.20 and 0306.23.00.40); 4) shrimp and prawns in prepared meals (HTSUS subheading 1605.20.05.10); 5) dried shrimp and prawns; 6) canned warm-water shrimp and prawns (HTSUS subheading 1605.20.10.40); 7) certain dusted shrimp; and 8) certain battered shrimp. Dusted shrimp is a shrimp-based product: 1) that is produced from fresh (or thawed-from-frozen) and peeled shrimp; 2) to which a dusting layer of rice or wheat flour of at least 95 percent purity has been applied; 3) with the entire surface of the shrimp flesh thoroughly and evenly coated with the flour; 4) with the non-shrimp content of the end product constituting between four and 10 percent of the product's total weight after being dusted, but prior to being frozen; and 5) that is subjected to IQF freezing immediately after application of the dusting layer. Battered shrimp is a shrimp-based product that, when dusted in accordance with the definition of dusting above, is coated with a wet viscous layer containing egg and/or milk, and par-fried.

The products covered by this order are currently classified under the following HTSUS subheadings: 0306.13.00.03, 0306.13.00.06, 0306.13.00.09, 0306.13.00.12, 0306.13.00.15, 0306.13.00.18, 0306.13.00.21, 0306.13.00.24, 0306.13.00.27, 0306.13.00.40, 1605.20.10.10, and 1605.20.10.30. These HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and for customs purposes only and are not dispositive, but rather the written description of the scope of this order is dispositive.  
DOC Determinations-Administrative Review 2/1 - 8/14/2007: Prelim | Final | Amended Final | Revocation

All Rates Edge Upwards, But Still Below 1% In Last Reveiw of Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Ecuador - U.S. Department of Commerce Issues Amended Final Results.

On October 19, 2009, the U.S. Department of Commerce published  the Final Results of its last  antidumping duty administrative review of  shripm from Ecuador.  (The antidumping duty order on shrimp from Ecuador was revoked effective August 15, 2007.)  This review affects entries made from February 1, 2007, through August 14, 2007.  The Department of Commerce determine that Promarisco and Sociedad Nacional de Galapagos sold products at less than fair value, calculating a 0.85% rate for Promarisco, and a 0.64% rate.  The review covered 79 other shrimp proudcers and exporters that were assigned the average rate of 0.75%

Keep track of the calendar!  If the U.S. Customs and Border Protection does not liquidate the entries within six months, by law, it must liquidate them as entered.  In this case, rates increased slightly over the rates applicable to entries from February 2006 to January 2007.  That means that if Customs and Border Protection delays liquidation, by law it cannot collect the increase.  If your entries are liquidated after the 6 months at the new higher rate, you can protest the liquidation and escape the additional liability.
