SENSITIVE BUT UNCLASSIFIED, PLEASE PROTECT ACCORDINGLY

1. (U) AIT/Kaohsiung PCO Janee Pierre-Louis, FN Commercial Assistant
Daphne Fan and Intern Andrew Fowers visited Nitto Denko Corporation
at the address given and met with the Production Engineering Group
Manager, Tomokazu Himura and Assistant Manager, Chun-lin Chen, to
conduct a post-shipment verification on August 17, 2007.

2. (U) Nitto Denko Corporation, with paid-up capital of NTD
404,997,000 (USD 1: NTD 33), was established and registered with the
Taiwan authorities in 1969. Nitto Denko manufactures PVC insulating
tapes and industrial tapes. Nitto Denko, a Japanese-owned company,
has two factories in Taiwan with 250 employees.

3. (U) Both Tomokazu Himura and Chun-lin Chen of Nitto Denko were
cooperative and confirmed receipt of one Thermo Tracer unit (Type
TH7102WX, Serial No. 3011006) in July 2003. During the production
process, the thermo tracer is used to monitor the temperature of the
PVC tape. AIT/K personnel physically inspected the thermo tracer
and were allowed to photograph the controlled item. Nitto Denko
also provided AIT/K with copies of the relevant invoice and airway
bill.

4. (U) All indications were that the thermo tracer has been used in
accordance with the export license. AIT's visit disclosed no adverse
information about the firm and its suitability to receive sensitive
U.S. products.

5. (SBU) According to internal AIT/K records, it may be worth noting
that a US affiliated company of Nitto Denko (Japan) was the subject
of an investigation in 1989 involving suspected violation of trade
valuation laws. However, the case appears unrelated to the
Kaohsiung subsidiary's suitability to receive sensitive US
products.
