The package or kit must contain all necessary internal and external doors and windows, nails, screws, glue, sub floor, sheathing, beams, posts, connectors, and if included in the purchase contract, decking, trim, drywall and roof shingles specified in the plan, design or blueprint; 1 To ensure administrability, we clarified the language of exclusion number 6 to require an importer certification and to permit single or multiple entries on multiple days as well as instructing importers to retain and make available for inspection specific documentation in support of each entry. VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:07 Aug 28, 2006 Jkt 208001 C. Prior to importation, the package or kit must be sold to a retailer of complete home packages or kits pursuant to a valid purchase contract referencing the particular home design plan or blueprint, and signed by a customer not affiliated with the importer; D. Softwood lumber products entered as part of a single family home package or kit, whether in a single entry or multiple entries on multiple days, will be used solely for the construction of the single family home specified by the home design matching the entry. E. For each entry, the following documentation must be retained by the importer and made available to CBP upon request: i. A copy of the appropriate home design, plan, or blueprint matching the entry; ii. A purchase contract from a retailer of home kits or packages signed by a customer not affiliated with the importer; iii. A listing of inventory of all parts of the package or kit being entered that conforms to the home design package being entered; iv. In the case of multiple shipments on the same contract, all items listed in E(iii) which are included in the present shipment shall be identified as well. Lumber products that CBP may classify as stringers, radius cut box– spring-frame components, and fence pickets, not conforming to the above requirements, as well as truss components, pallet components, and door and window frame parts, are covered under the scope of this order and may be classified under HTSUS subheadings 4418.90.45.90, 4421.90.70.40, and 4421.90.97.40. Finally, as clarified throughout the course of the investigation, the following products, previously identified as Group A, remain outside the scope of this order. They are: 1. Trusses and truss kits, properly classified under HTSUS 4418.90; 2. I–joist beams; 3. Assembled box spring frames; 4. Pallets and pallet kits, properly classified under HTSUS 4415.20; 5. Garage doors; 6. Edge–glued wood, properly classified under HTSUS 4421.90.97.40; 7. Properly classified complete door frames; 8. Properly classified complete window frames; and 9. Properly classified furniture. In addition, this scope language was further clarified to specify that all PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 softwood lumber products entered from Canada claiming non–subject status based on U.S. country of origin will be treated as non–subject U.S.-origin merchandise under the countervailing duty order, provided that these softwood lumber products meet the following condition: upon entry, the importer, exporter, Canadian processor and/or original U.S. producer establish to CBP’s satisfaction that the softwood lumber entered and documented as U.S.-origin softwood lumber was first produced in the United States as a lumber product satisfying the physical parameters of the softwood lumber scope.2 The presumption of non–subject status can, however, be rebutted by evidence demonstrating that the merchandise was substantially transformed in Canada. On March 3, 2006, the Department issued a scope ruling that any product entering under HTSUS 4409.10.05 which is continually shaped along its end and/or side edges which otherwise conforms to the written definition of the scope is within the scope of the order.3 Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review Based on the information provided by IVIS, and the fact that the Department did not receive any comments during the comment period following the preliminary results of this review, the Department hereby determines that IVIS is the successor–in-interest to Ivis Wood for antidumping duty cash deposit purposes. Instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection The Department will instruct CBP to suspend liquidation of all shipments of the subject merchandise produced and exported by IVIS entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption, on or after the publication date of this notice at 3.78 percent (i.e., Ivis Wood’s cash deposit rate).

On December 3, 2004, the Act was further amended pursuant to the Miscellaneous Trade Act of 2004, Public Law 108-429, by increasing the TRQ for worsted wool fabric with average fiber diameters greater than 18.5 microns, HTS 9902.51.11, to an annual total level of 5.5 million square meters, and extending it through 2007, and increasing the TRQ for average fiber diameters of 18.5 microns or less, HTS 9902.51.15 (previously 9902.51.12), to an annual total level of 5 million square meters and extending it through 2006. On August 17, 2006 the Act was further amended pursuant to the Pension Protection Act of 2006, Public Law 109280, which extended both TRQs, 9902.51.11 and 9902.51.15, through 2009. The Act requires that the TRQs be allocated to persons who cut and sew men’s and boys’ worsted wool suits, suit-type jackets and trousers in the United States.

Notice of Final Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances 
Review: Certain Softwood Lumber Products from Canada

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) has determined, 
pursuant to section 751(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), that Ivis Partners Ltd. (IVIS) is the successor-in-interest to 
Ivis Wood Products Ltd. (Ivis Wood) and, as a result, should be 
accorded the same treatment previously accorded to Ivis Wood in regard 
to the antidumping order on certain softwood lumber products from 
Canada as of the date of publication of this notice in the Federal 
Register.

EFFECTIVE DATE: August 29, 2006.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Constance Handley or David Layton, AD/
CVD Operations, Office 1, Import Administration, International Trade

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On February 16, 2006, in accordance with section 751(b)(1) of the 
Act and 19 CFR 351.216(b) (2004), IVIS, a Canadian producer of softwood 
lumber products and interested party in this proceeding, filed a 
request for a changed circumstances review. In response to this 
request, the Department initiated a changed circumstances review of the 
antidumping duty order on certain softwood lumber from Canada. See 
Initiation of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review: Certain 
Softwood Products from Canada, 71 FR 18072 (April 10, 2006) (Initiation 
Notice). On April 4, 2006, the Department issued a questionnaire to 
IVIS requesting further details on its purchase of Ivis Woods. IVIS' 
response was received by the Department on April 13, 2006. On May 10, 
2006, the Department issued an additional supplemental questionnaire to 
IVIS. IVIS' response was received on May 17, 2006. On June 22, 2006, 
the Department preliminarily determined that IVIS was the successor-in-
interest to Ivis Wood. See Notice of Preliminary Results of Antidumping 
Duty Changed Circumstances Review: Certain Softwood Lumber Products 
from Canada, 71 FR 35867 (June 22, 2006) (Preliminary Results). We 
invited parties to comment on the Preliminary Results. We received no 
comments.

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by this order are softwood lumber, flooring 
and siding (softwood lumber products). Softwood lumber products include 
all products classified under subheadings 4407.1000, 4409.1010, 
4409.1090, and 4409.1020, respectively, of the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), and any softwood lumber, 
flooring and siding described below. These softwood lumber products 
include:
    (1) Coniferous wood, sawn or chipped lengthwise, sliced or peeled, 
whether or not planed, sanded or finger-jointed, of a thickness 
exceeding six millimeters;
    (2) Coniferous wood siding (including strips and friezes for 
parquet flooring, not assembled) continuously shaped (tongued, grooved, 
rabbeted, chamfered, v-jointed, beaded, molded, rounded or the like) 
along any of its edges or faces, whether or not planed, sanded or 
finger-jointed;
    (3) Other coniferous wood (including strips and friezes for parquet 
flooring, not assembled) continuously shaped (tongued, grooved, 
rabbeted, chamfered, v-jointed, beaded, molded, rounded or the like) 
along any of its edges or faces (other than wood mouldings and wood 
dowel rods) whether or not planed, sanded or finger-jointed; and
    (4) Coniferous wood flooring (including strips and friezes for 
parquet flooring, not assembled) continuously shaped (tongued, grooved, 
rabbeted, chamfered, v-jointed, beaded, molded, rounded or the like) 
along any of its edges or faces, whether or not planed, sanded or 
finger-jointed.
    Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and 
U.S. Customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise 
subject to this order is dispositive.
    As specifically stated in the Issues and Decision Memorandum 
accompanying the Notice of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than 
Fair Value: Certain Softwood Lumber Products from Canada, 67 FR 15539

B-7, page 126), available at www.ia.ita.doc.gov/frn, drilled and 
notched lumber and angle cut lumber are covered by the scope of this 
order.
    The following softwood lumber products are excluded from the scope 
of this order provided they meet the specified requirements detailed 
below:
    (1) Stringers (pallet components used for runners): if they have at

    (2) Box-spring frame kits: if they contain the following wooden 
pieces - two side rails, two end (or top) rails and varying numbers of 
slats. The side rails and the end rails should be radius-cut at both 
ends. The kits should be individually packaged, they should

[[Page 51186]]

contain the exact number of wooden components needed to make a 
particular box spring frame, with no further processing required. None 
of the components exceeds 1'' in actual thickness or 83'' in length.
    (3) Radius-cut box-spring-frame components, not exceeding 1'' in 
actual thickness or 83'' in length, ready for assembly without further 
processing. The radius cuts must be present on both ends of the boards

dog-eared fence pickets, the corners of the boards should be cut off so 
as to remove pieces of wood in the shape of isosceles right angle 
triangles with sides measuring 3/4 inch or more.
    (5) U.S. origin lumber shipped to Canada for minor processing and 
imported into the United States, is excluded from the scope of this 
order if the following conditions are met: 1) the processing occurring 
in Canada is limited to kiln-drying, planing to create smooth-to-size 
board, and sanding, and 2) if the importer establishes to the 
satisfaction of CBP that the lumber is of U.S. origin.
    (6) Softwood lumber products contained in single family home 
packages or kits,\1\ regardless of tariff classification, are excluded 
from the scope of this order if the importer certifies to items 6 A, B, 
C, D, and requirement 6 E is met:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ To ensure administrability, we clarified the language of 
exclusion number 6 to require an importer certification and to 
permit single or multiple entries on multiple days as well as 
instructing importers to retain and make available for inspection 
specific documentation in support of each entry.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A. The imported home package or kit constitutes a full package of

    Lumber products that CBP may classify as stringers, radius cut box-
spring-frame components, and fence pickets, not conforming to the above 
requirements, as well as truss components, pallet components, and door 
and window frame parts, are covered under the scope of this order and 
may be classified under HTSUS subheadings 4418.90.45.90, 4421.90.70.40, 
and 4421.90.97.40.
    Finally, as clarified throughout the course of the investigation, 
the following products, previously identified as Group A, remain 
outside the scope of this order. They are:
    1. Trusses and truss kits, properly classified under HTSUS 4418.90;
    2. I-joist beams;
    3. Assembled box spring frames;
    4. Pallets and pallet kits, properly classified under HTSUS 
4415.20;
    5. Garage doors;
    6. Edge-glued wood, properly classified under HTSUS 4421.90.97.40;
    7. Properly classified complete door frames;
    8. Properly classified complete window frames; and
    9. Properly classified furniture.
    In addition, this scope language was further clarified to specify 
that all softwood lumber products entered from Canada claiming non-
subject status based on U.S. country of origin will be treated as non-
subject U.S.-origin merchandise under the countervailing duty order, 
provided that these softwood lumber products meet the following 
condition: upon entry, the importer, exporter, Canadian processor and/
or original U.S. producer establish to CBP's satisfaction that the 
softwood lumber entered and documented as U.S.-origin softwood lumber 
was first produced in the United States as a lumber product satisfying 
the physical parameters of the softwood lumber scope.\2\ The 
presumption of non-subject status can, however, be rebutted by evidence 
demonstrating that the merchandise was substantially transformed in 
Canada.

the Main Commerce Building.

    On March 3, 2006, the Department issued a scope ruling that any 
product entering under HTSUS 4409.10.05 which is continually shaped 
along its end and/or side edges which otherwise conforms to the written 
definition of the scope is within the scope of the order.\3\

deposit rate). This deposit rate shall remain in effect until 
publication of the final results of the next administrative review in 
which Ivis Wood participates.
