ACTION: Notice and modification of action. AGENCY: 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 determined in March 2008 that Canada had breached certain SLA obligations. In February 2009, the tribunal issued a remedy award instructing Canada to collect an additional 10 percent ad jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:28 Aug 27, 2010 Jkt 220001 valorem export charge on softwood lumber shipments from Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan, until an entire amount of CDN $68 million has been collected. Canada did not begin collecting the additional export charge. In April 2009, the United States Trade Representative (‘‘Trade Representative’’) initiated an investigation under Section 302 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended (‘‘Trade Act’’). In that investigation, the Trade Representative determined that Canada’s failure to implement the tribunal’s remedy award had the effect of denying U.S. rights under the SLA; and, pursuant to Section 301 of the Trade Act, the Trade Representative imposed 10 percent ad valorem duties on imports of softwood lumber products subject to the SLA from the provinces of Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan (the April 2009 action). Under the April 2009 action, the duties are to remain in place until such time as the United States collects $54.8 million, the U.S. dollar equivalent of CDN $68 million at the time. The Government of Canada, however, has now adopted its own measures to address Canada’s breach of the SLA. In particular, Canada will begin collection of an additional 10 percent charge on exports of softwood lumber products from the provinces of Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan, which will be effective with respect to softwood lumber products with a shipment date of September 1, 2010 or later. Per an understanding between the Governments of the United States and Canada, Canada will collect the additional 10 percent charge on exports until the total of the amounts collected under the U.S. import duty and the Canadian charge on exports is equal to CDN $68 million. The Trade Representative has determined that Canada’s measures satisfactorily grant the rights of the United States under the SLA. Accordingly, the Trade Representative has modified the April 2009 action by removing the 10 percent ad valorem duties on imports of softwood lumber products subject to the SLA from the provinces of Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan, effective with respect to imports with a shipment date of September 1, 2010 or later. The modification of the April 2009 action is effective with respect to imports of softwood lumber products subject to the SLA from the provinces of Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan with a shipment date of September 1, 2010 or later.

B. Canada’s Measures Addressing the Breach of the SLA Canada has adopted measures to comply with the February 2009 remedy award by imposing a 10 percent export charge on exports of softwood lumber products subject to the SLA from the provinces of Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan. Canada enacted the necessary legislation, in the form of an amendment to the Softwood Lumber Products Export Charge Act, 2006, with parliamentary approval and royal assent on July 12, 2010. On August 4, 2010, Canada issued an Order in Council setting September 1, 2010 as the date to begin imposing the 10% charge on shipments of softwood lumber products from the provinces of Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan. Per an understanding between the Governments of the United States and Canada, Canada will collect the additional 10 percent charge on exports until the total of the amounts collected under the U.S. import duty and the Canadian charge on exports is equal to CDN $68 million. The understanding also provides for the United States and Canada to exchange information on the ongoing amounts collected under the U.S. import duty and the Canadian charge on exports. C.
