See Canned Pineapple Fruit from Thailand: Preliminary Results of the Full Sunset Review of the Antidumping Duty Order (‘‘Preliminary Results’’). In our Preliminary Results, we determined that revocation of the order would likely result in continuation or recurrence of dumping with a margin of 51.16 percent for SAICO, 41.74 percent for Malee, and 24.64 percent for ‘‘all others.’’ We received a case brief on behalf of Respondents.

Co., Ltd. (collectively, ``Respondents''). We received a rebuttal brief 
from the domestic interested party, Maui Pineapple Company (``Maui''). 
As a result of this sunset review, the Department finds that revocation

Background

    On October 27, 2006, the Department of Commerce (the 
``Department'') published in the Federal Register a notice of 
preliminary results of the full sunset review of the antidumping duty 
order on CPF, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act. See Canned 
Pineapple Fruit from Thailand: Preliminary Results of the Full Sunset 
Review of the Antidumping Duty Order (``Preliminary Results''). In our 
Preliminary Results, we determined that revocation of the order would 
likely result in continuation or recurrence of dumping with a margin of 
51.16 percent for SAICO, 41.74 percent for Malee, and 24.64 percent for 
``all others.'' We received a case brief on behalf of Respondents. We 
did not receive a case brief from Maui. Maui filed a timely rebuttal 
brief. No hearing was requested.

Scope of the Order

    The product covered by this order is CPF, defined as pineapple 
processed and/or prepared into various product forms, including rings, 
pieces, chunks, tidbits, and crushed pineapple, that is packed and 
cooked in metal cans with either pineapple juice or sugar syrup added. 
CPF is currently classifiable under subheadings 2008.20.0010 and 
2008.20.0090 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States 
(``HTSUS''). HTSUS 2008.20.0010 covers CPF packed in a sugar-based 
syrup; HTSUS 2008.20.0090 covers CPF packed without added sugar (i.e., 
juice-packed). Although these HTSUS subheadings are provided for 
convenience and for customs purposes, the written description of the 
scope is dispositive. There have been no scope rulings for the subject 
order.
