The Department of Commerce (the Department) received a timely request from C & A Products Co., Ltd. (C&A), in accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(c), for a new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on canned pineapple fruit (CPF) from Thailand. See Notice of Antidumping Duty Order and Amended Final Determination: Canned Pineapple Fruit from Thailand, 60 FR 36775 (July 18, 1995). C&A identified itself as the producer and exporter of subject merchandise.
As required by 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(i),(ii), and (iii)(A), C&A certified it did not export CPF to the United States during the period of investigation (POI), and that it has never been affiliated with any exporter or producer that exported CPF during or after the POI. It also submitted documentation establishing the date on which C&A first shipped the subject merchandise to the United States, the volume of that first and any subsequent shipments, and the date of C&A's first sale to an unaffiliated customer in the United States. C&A states it cannot report the first entry date because the sale was to an unaffiliated customer.
