On August 19, 2013, the U.S. Court of International Trade (per Judge Stanceu) issued an opinion remanding certain aspects of the Commission’s affirmative threat determination in Drill Pipe and Drill Collars from China, 701–TA–474 & 731– TA–1176 (Final), USITC Pub. 4213 (Feb. 2011). In the Commission’s final determination, three Commissioners reached an affirmative threat determination (Commissioners Williamson, Pinkert, and Lane) while three Commissioners reached a negative determination (Chairman Okun, and Commissioners Pearson and Aranoff). SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 In its opinion, the Court concluded that the Commission made two erroneous findings. Id. at 11–19. In the Court’s view, ‘‘. . . the impermissible findings were that only smaller domestic purchasers, as opposed to purchasers the ITC considered ‘large,’ were buying subject merchandise at the start of the POI and that, during the POI, the participation of Chinese suppliers in the U.S. market broke through a prior limitation to smaller customers.’’ Id. at 16. The Court concluded that ‘‘ ‘from these erroneous findings, the ITC reached the unsupported conclusion that ‘the participation of suppliers of Chinese product in the U.S. market has evolved and grown over the period in ways that indicate further expansion is imminent,’ and the related conclusion that ‘the fact that suppliers of Chinese product have broken through a major prior limitation on their reach in the U.S. market is an indication that their U.S. market share is poised to increase.’ ’’ Id. at 16 (internal citations omitted). On remand, the Court instructed the Commission to reconsider its affirmative threat determination ‘‘on the whole, in the absence of these findings and conclusions.’’ Id. at 17. The Court also remanded two issues to the Commission for further explanation. First, the Court directed the Commission ‘‘to explain why, and to what extent, it based its overall determination related to likely future import volume on its stated findings that the U.S. market share of subject merchandise was ‘substantial’ throughout the POI and ‘grew’ in firsthalf 2010.’’ Id. at 20. Second, the Court instructed the Commission to provide further explanation in support of its finding that ‘‘U.S. importers have increased their quantities of inventories of Chinese product to levels are particularly significant in the context of current market conditions.’’ Id. at 21. Under the remand schedule ordered by the Court, the Commission must file its remand determination by November 18, 2013. Participation in the proceeding.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background. On August 19, 2013, the U.S. 
Court of International Trade (per Judge Stanceu) issued an opinion 
remanding certain aspects of the Commission's affirmative threat 
determination in Drill Pipe and Drill Collars from China, 701-TA-474 & 
731-TA-1176 (Final), USITC Pub. 4213 (Feb. 2011). In the Commission's 
final determination, three Commissioners reached an affirmative threat 
determination (Commissioners Williamson, Pinkert, and Lane) while three 
Commissioners reached a negative determination (Chairman Okun, and 
Commissioners Pearson and Aranoff).
    In its opinion, the Court concluded that the Commission made two 
erroneous findings. Id. at 11-19. In the Court's view, ``. . . the 
impermissible findings were that only smaller domestic purchasers, as 
opposed to purchasers the ITC considered `large,' were buying subject 
merchandise at the start of the POI and that, during the POI, the 
participation of Chinese suppliers in the U.S. market broke through a 
prior limitation to smaller customers.'' Id. at 16.
    The Court concluded that `` `from these erroneous findings, the ITC 
reached the unsupported conclusion that `the participation of suppliers 
of Chinese product in the U.S. market has evolved and grown over the 
period in ways that indicate further expansion is imminent,' and the 
related conclusion that `the fact that suppliers of Chinese product 
have broken through a major prior limitation on their reach in the U.S. 
market is an indication that their U.S. market share is poised to 
increase.' '' Id. at 16 (internal citations omitted). On remand, the 
Court instructed the Commission to reconsider its affirmative threat 
determination ``on the whole, in the absence of these findings and 
conclusions.'' Id. at 17.
    The Court also remanded two issues to the Commission for further 
explanation. First, the Court directed the Commission ``to explain why, 
and to what extent, it based its overall determination related to 
likely future import volume on its stated findings that the U.S. market 
share of subject merchandise was `substantial' throughout the POI and 
`grew' in first-half 2010.'' Id. at 20. Second, the Court instructed 
the Commission to provide further explanation in support of its finding 
that ``U.S. importers have increased their quantities of inventories of 
Chinese product to levels are particularly significant in the context 
of current market conditions.'' Id. at 21.
    Under the remand schedule ordered by the Court, the Commission must 
file its remand determination by November 18, 2013.

proceeding. Business proprietary information (``BPI'') referred to
