On October 3, 2005, the Commission instituted a five-year review concerning the antidumping duty order on gray portland cement and cement clinker from Mexico (70 F.R. 57617). On January 6, 2006, the Commission determined that it should proceed to a full review in the subject five-year review pursuant to section 751(c)(5) of the Act (71 F.R. 2957, January 18, 2006).

On March 6, 2006, the Office of the United States Trade Representative and the United States Department of Commerce (“Commerce”) entered into an agreement with the Secretaria de Economia of Mexico pertaining to imports of gray portland cement and clinker from Mexico (“Agreement”). The Agreement provides that, if Mexican Cement producers successfully abide by the terms of the Agreement for three years, the antidumping duty order will be revoked with respect to those producers. Pursuant to Section II.A.4.d. of the Mexican Cement Agreement, Commerce has “[s]uspended the 2005 Sunset Review of the Mexican Cement Order.” [1] Thus, Commerce has not issued a schedule for conducting its 2005 Sunset Review, including setting a date when it intends to issue the final determination for its review. Accordingly, the Commission has postponed establishing a schedule in its related full five-year review until such time as Commerce issues a schedule or announces a final affirmative determination in its 2005 Sunset Review.
