Because Golden Quality certified that it both produced and exported the subject merchandise, the sale of which is the basis for the new shipper review request, we will instruct CBP to permit the use of a bond only for subject merchandise which Golden Quality both produced and exported. Interested parties requiring access to proprietary information in this NSR should submit applications for disclosure under administrative protective order, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305 and 19 CFR 351.306.
