US - The US Department of Commerce (DoC) has initiated action for the fourth administrative review (4th AR) on anti-dumping duty on frozen warm water shrimp from India, Brazil, China, Thailand and Vietnam.

The department, in a notification issued on 4th of this month, has called for filing voluntary review from export houses on their exports to the US during February. '08 to January, '09.

According to the Business Standard, this process is to limit the number of respondents for individual examination for the fourth edition of the review.

In earlier rounds of the review DoC had listed around 350 Indian exporters for the review as per the list submitted by Southern Shrimp Alliance, the original petitioners in the anti-dumping case against India and other countries, says the report. In order to avoid scrutinising the export details of all companies, DoC shortlisted a few companies from each country as mandatory respondents for the smooth conduct of the review. During the earlier rounds of the review, DoC selected 3-4 largest export companies from India like Devi Seafoods, Falcon Marine and Hindustan Unilever Limited.
