Question for written answer E-002936-18
to the Commission
Rule 130

 Subject:  Monitoring of divestment commitments in case M.84444 — ArcelorMittal/Ilva
 Answer in writing 

On 7 May 2018, the Commission approved, under the EU Merger Regulation, the acquisition of Ilva by ArcelorMittal under several conditions, which include the divestment of production capacities at the integrated steel plant in Romania (Galati). According to the decision, ArcelorMittal should organise ‘an open, non-discriminatory and transparent sales process’ of the steel plant.

1. Other than by nominating a monitoring trustee, has the Commission put in place any mechanism to continuously oversee the implementation by ArcelorMittal of this commitment?

2. Has the Commission imposed, or is it aware of the existence of, a set of criteria for assessing the offers received?

3. Will the Commission and the Romanian authorities receive information on the offers received by ArcelorMittal and an explanation of the choice of future buyer before the sale process is concluded?
