Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(I) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(i), Zhejiang Jingli also certified that it did not export TRBs to the United States during the period of investigation (POI).3 In addition, pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(II) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(A), Zhejiang Jingli certified that, since the BILLING CODE 3510–DS–P 1 See Certain Frozen Fish Fillets from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Final Results of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review; 2014–2015, 81 FR 44272 (July 7, 2016) (‘‘2014–2015 Final Results of the New Shipper Review on Fish Fillets from Vietnam’’). 2 Id.

The Department also examined whether the CBP data confirmed that this entry was made during the POR. The information the Department examined was consistent with that provided by Zhejiang Jingli. Period of Review In accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(g)(1)(i)(A), the POR for an NSR initiated in the month immediately following the anniversary month will be the twelve-month period immediately preceding the anniversary month.
