On March 7, 2007, the Department requested that Fashion Living correct certain filing deficiencies. See the Department’s letter dated March 7, 2007. On March 8, 2007, Fashion Living resubmitted its new shipper request. Fashion Living certified that it is both the producer and exporter of the subject merchandise upon which the request for a new shipper review is based.

In addition, pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(II) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(A), Fashion Living certified that, since the initiation of the investigation, it has never been affiliated with any PRC exporter or producer who exported petroleum wax candles to the United States during the POI, including those not individually examined during the investigation. As required by 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(B), Fashion Living also certified that its export activities were 14521 not controlled by the central government of the PRC.
