As required by 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(i) and (iii)(A), Tosçelik certified that it did not export subject merchandise to the United States during the period of investigation (“POI”), and that it has never been affiliated with any exporter or producer that exported subject merchandise during the POI.2 Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iv), the company submitted documentation establishing the date on which it first shipped the subject merchandise to the United States, the date of entry of that first shipment, the volume of that and subsequent shipments, and the date of the first sale to an unaffiliated customer in the United States. Tosçelik also certified that, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(v), it has informed the Government of the Republic of Turkey that it will be required to provide a full response to the Department's questionnaire.3

Initiation of Review

In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214, and based on information on the record, we are initiating a CVD new shipper review for Tosçelik. We intend to issue the preliminary results of this new shipper review no later than 180 days after initiation of this review.4 We intend to issue final results of this review no later than 90 days after the date on which the preliminary results are issued.5
