See Decision of the Panel on Third Remand, In the Matter of Certain Softwood Lumber from Canada: Final Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determination, Secretariat File No. USA–CDA–2002– 1904–03 NAFTA Binational Panel Review, May 23, 2005. On July 7, 2005, the Department issued its fourth remand determination again continuing to find that Canadian lumber is subsidized but at a country–wide rate of 1.21 percent ad valorem. See Fourth Remand Determination In the Matter of Certain Softwood Lumber from Canada: Final Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determination, Secretariat File No. USA–CDA–2002–1904–03 NAFTA Binational Panel Review, July 7, 2005. On October 5, 2005, the Panel issued its decision on fourth remand, affirming in part and remanding in part the Department’s determination. See Decision of the Panel on Fourth Remand, In the Matter of Certain Softwood Lumber from Canada: Final Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determination, Secretariat File No. USA–CDA–2002–1904–03 NAFTA Binational Panel Review, October 5, 2005. The Panel directed the Department to use the figure of C$4.34 in determining the profit earned by sellers of logs in the Province of Quebec for the purpose of developing a log– based benchmark price. The Department continued to object to the Panel’s decision, but, on November 22, 2005, filed its Fifth Remand Determination in compliance with the Panel’s directions, finding a country–wide subsidy rate of 0.80 percent which is de minimis. By decision on March 17, 2006, the Panel affirmed the Fifth Remand Determination and subsequently directed the NAFTA Secretariat to issue a Notice of Final Panel Action on March 28, 2006. Timken Notice In its decision in Timken, the Federal Circuit held that, pursuant to 19 U.S.C. § 1516a(c)(1) and 1516a(e), the Department must publish notice of decision of the Court of International Trade which is ‘‘not in harmony’’ with the Department’s results. See Timken, 893 F.2d at 340. Because NAFTA panels step into the shoes of the courts they are replacing, they must apply the law of the national court that would otherwise review the administrative determination. Therefore, we are publishing notice that the NAFTA Panel’s March 28, 2006, Notice of Final Panel Action and its Panel Decision on Fifth Remand, decision are ‘‘not in harmony’’ with the Final Determination. Publication of this notice fulfills the VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:20 Apr 12, 2006 Jkt 208001 obligation imposed upon the Department by the decision in Timken. In addition, this notice will serve to suspend liquidation of entries of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after April 7, 2006, i.e., 10 days from the issuance of the Notice of Final Action, at the current cash deposit rate. Dated: April 6, 2006. David M. Spooner, Assistant Secretaryfor Import Administration. [FR Doc.
