    On June 30, 2005, the U.S. Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
published a notice of initiation of administrative review on the 
countervailing duty order of certain softwood lumber from Canada, 
covering the period April 1, 2003, through March 31, 2004. See 
Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative 
Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 69 FR 39409 (June 30, 
2005). The preliminary results of this administrative review were 
published on June 7, 2005. See Notice of Preliminary Results of 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Review: Certain Softwood Lumber 
Products from Canada, 70 FR 33088 (June 7, 2005). On July 1, 2005, at 
the request of the parties, the time periods for filing case briefs and 
rebuttal briefs was extended to August 11, 2005, and August 18, 2005, 
respectively. See memorandum from Eric B. Greynolds to file, dated July

public file room in room B-099 of the main Commerce building.

Extension of Time Limit for Final Results of Review

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department to issue final results in an 
administrative review within 120 days after the date on which the 
preliminary results were published. However, if it is not practicable 
to complete the final results of review within this time period, 
section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the 
time limit for the final results to 180 days from the date of 
publication of the preliminary results.
    Due to the extension of time periods for filing case briefs and 
rebuttal briefs, the large volume of issues raised by parties in their 
briefs, and the complexity of these issues, we find that it is not 
practicable for the Department to complete the final results of the 
administrative review within the 120-day statutory time frame. 
Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of 
the final results until December 4, 2005, which is 180 days from the 
date of publication of the preliminary results. However, December 4 
falls on Sunday, and it is the Department's long-standing practice to 
issue a determination the next business day when the statutory deadline 
falls on a weekend, federal holiday, or any other day when the 
Department is closed. See Notice of Clarification: Application of 
``Next Business Day'' Rule for Administrative Determination Deadlines 
Pursuant to the Tariff Act of 1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 
2005). Accordingly, the deadline for completion of the final results is 
December 5, 2005.
    This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 
751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.
