ACTION: Notice of initiation of Section 302 investigation and determinations therein; imposition of duties on certain softwood lumber from Canada; and request for public comment. SUMMARY: Under the 2006 Softwood Lumber Agreement (SLA), Canada agreed to impose export measures on Canadian exports of softwood lumber products to the United States. At the request of the United States, an arbitral tribunal established under the SLA found that Canada had not complied with certain SLA obligations, and in February 2009 the tribunal issued an award concerning the remedy to be applied. In order to enforce U.S. rights under the SLA, the United States Trade Representative (‘‘Trade Representative’’) has initiated an investigation under Section 302 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended (‘‘Trade Act’’). In that investigation, the USTR has (i) Determined that Canada is denying U.S. rights under the SLA; (ii) found that expeditious action is required to enforce U.S. rights under the SLA; and (iii) determined that appropriate action under Section 301 of the Trade Act is to impose 10 percent ad valorem duties on imports of softwood lumber products from the provinces of Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan, as set out in the annex to this notice. The duties will remain in place until such time as the United States has collected $54.8 PO 00000 Frm 00088 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 million, which is the amount determined by the arbitral tribunal. Interested persons are invited to submit comments on the determinations in this investigation, and to participate in a public hearing in the event a hearing is requested. DATES: Effective Date: The 10 percent ad valorem duties on imports of softwood lumber products from the provinces of Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan shall be effective with respect to products that are entered for consumption or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after April 15, 2009. ADDRESSES: Non-confidential comments (as explained below) should be submitted electronically via the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov, docket number USTR–2009–0011. If you are unable to provide submissions by http://www.regulations.gov, please contact Sandy McKinzy at (202) 395– 9483 to arrange for an alternative method of transmission. If (as explained below), the comment contains confidential information, then persons wishing to submit such comments should contact Sandy McKinzy at (202) 395–9483. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: John Melle, Deputy Assistant USTR for the Americas, (202) 395–9448, or Daniel Stirk, Assistant General Counsel, (202) 395–9617, for questions concerning the enforcement of U.S. rights under the SLA; William Busis, Associate General Counsel and Chair of the Section 301 Committee, (202) 395–3150, for questions concerning procedures under Section 301; or Gwendolyn Diggs, Staff Assistant to the Section 301 Committee, (202) 395–5830, for questions concerning procedures for filing submissions in response to this notice. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Enforcement of U.S. Rights Under the SLA Under the SLA, Canada agreed to impose export measures on Canadian exports of softwood lumber products to the United States. When the prevailing monthly price of lumber, determined per the Agreement, is above US$355 per thousand board feet (MBF), Canadian lumber exports are unrestricted. When prices are at or below US$355 per MBF, each Canadian exporting region has chosen to be subject to either an export tax with a soft volume cap or a lower export tax with a hard volume cap. The export measures are to be adjusted in accordance with the market price of lumber, and the SLA includes an adjustment mechanism to ensure that the export volume caps are calculated E:\FR\FM\10APN1.SGM 10APN1
