The Department examined U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) import data for the 2012 calendar year and determined that CTL plate produced by Severstal accounted for substantially all (not less than 85 percent) of the subject merchandise imported into the United States during the January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2012 period of review. See Memo to the file from Anne D’Alauro dated September 27, 2013, with attached summary of CBP import data for 2012. On March 14, 2013, and May 31, 2013, the Department issued its questionnaire and supplemental questionnaire, respectively, to Severstal. Severstal submitted its responses on April 23, 2013, and June 27, 2013, respectively. The Department has conducted this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(C) of the Act, which specifies that the Department shall ‘‘review the current status of, and compliance with, any agreement by reason of which an investigation was suspended.’’ In this case, the Department and Severstal signed the Agreement, suspending the underlying antidumping duty investigation, on December 20, 2002. Pursuant to the Agreement, each signatory producer/exporter individually agrees to make any necessary price revisions to eliminate completely any amount by which the normal value (NV) of the subject merchandise exceeds the U.S. price of its merchandise subject to the Agreement. See Agreement, 68 FR at 3860–61. Our review of the information submitted by Severstal indicates that the company has adhered to the terms of the Agreement and that the Agreement is functioning as intended. For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.
