SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Commerce published the preliminary results of this countervailing duty (CVD) administrative review of softwood lumber from Canada on May 27, 2021, and invited interested parties to comment.1 For a summary of the events that occurred since the Preliminary Results and a full discussion of the issues raised by parties for the final results, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum.2 Scope of the Order 3 The product covered by the Order is certain softwood lumber products from Canada.

A list of the issues that the parties raised, and to which we responded in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, is attached to this notice at Appendix I. Based on our analysis of the comments received from the interested parties, we made changes to the subsidy rates calculated for certain respondents. For a discussion of these changes, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum. 1 See Certain Softwood Lumber Products from Canada: Preliminary Results and Partial Rescission of the Countervailing Duty Administrative Review; 2019, 86 FR 28556 (May 27, 2021) (Preliminary Results). 2 See Memorandum, ‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Results of the Administrative Review of the Countervailing Duty Order on Certain Softwood Lumber Products from Canada; 2019,’’ dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice (Issues and Decision Memorandum).

VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:49 Dec 01, 2021 Jkt 256001 Rate for Non-Selected Companies Under Review Because the rates calculated for the companies selected for individual review are above de minimis and not based entirely on facts available, we applied a subsidy rate based on a weighted average of the subsidy rates calculated for the reviewed companies using sales data submitted by those companies to calculate a rate for the companies not selected for review. This is consistent with the methodology that we would use in an investigation to establish the all-others rate, pursuant to section 705(c)(5)(A) of the Act. A list of all non-selected companies is included in Appendix II. For further information on the calculation of the non-selected rate, see ‘‘Final Ad Valorem Rate for NonSelected Companies under Review’’ in the Issues and Decision Memorandum. Final Results of Administrative Review In accordance with section 751(a)(1)(A) and of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5), we determine that the following total estimated countervailable subsidy rates exist for 2019: Subsidy rate 2019 ad valorem (percent) Companies Canfor Corporation and its cross-owned affiliates 4 ...........

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    Commerce published the preliminary results of this countervailing 
duty (CVD) administrative review of softwood lumber from Canada on May 
27, 2021, and invited interested parties to comment.\1\ For a summary 
of the events that occurred since the Preliminary Results and a full 
discussion of the issues raised by parties for the final results, see 
the Issues and Decision Memorandum.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Certain Softwood Lumber Products from Canada: 
Preliminary Results and Partial Rescission of the Countervailing 
Duty Administrative Review; 2019, 86 FR 28556 (May 27, 2021) 
(Preliminary Results).
    \2\ See Memorandum, ``Issues and Decision Memorandum for the 
Final Results of the Administrative Review of the Countervailing 
Duty Order on Certain Softwood Lumber Products from Canada; 2019,'' 
dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice (Issues 
and Decision Memorandum). The Issues and Decision Memorandum is a 
public document and is on file electronically via Enforcement and 
Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized 
Electronic Service System (ACCESS). ACCESS is available to

    The product covered by the Order is certain softwood lumber 
products from Canada. For a complete description of the scope of the 
Order, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Analysis of Subsidy Programs and Comments Received

    Commerce conducted this CVD administrative review in accordance 
with section 751(a)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act). The subsidy programs under review, and the issues raised in case 
and rebuttal briefs submitted by the interested parties, are discussed 
in the Issues and Decision Memorandum. A list of the issues that the 
parties raised, and to which we responded in the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum, is attached to this notice at Appendix I. Based on our 
analysis of the comments received from the interested parties, we made 
changes to the subsidy rates calculated for certain respondents. For a 
discussion of these changes, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Rate for Non-Selected Companies Under Review

    Because the rates calculated for the companies selected for 
individual review are above de minimis and not based entirely on facts 
available, we applied a subsidy rate based on a weighted average of the 
subsidy rates calculated for the reviewed companies using sales data 
submitted by those companies to calculate a rate for the companies not 
selected for review. This is consistent with the methodology that we 
would use in an investigation to establish the all-others rate, 
pursuant to section 705(c)(5)(A) of the Act. A list of all non-selected 
companies is included in Appendix II.
    For further information on the calculation of the non-selected 
rate, see ``Final Ad Valorem Rate for Non-Selected Companies under 
Review'' in the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Final Results of Administrative Review

    In accordance with section 751(a)(1)(A) and of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.221(b)(5), we determine that the following total estimated 
countervailable subsidy rates exist for 2019:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                                Subsidy

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(2), Commerce will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, countervailing duties on all appropriate 
entries of subject merchandise covered by this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, Commerce 
intends to instruct CBP to collect cash deposits of estimated 
countervailing duties in the amounts shown for the companies subject to 
this review. For all non-reviewed companies, we will instruct CBP to 
continue to collect cash deposits of estimated countervailing duties at 
the most recent company-specific or all-others rate applicable to the 
company, as appropriate. These cash deposits, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Administrative Protective Order (APO)

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to parties subject to 
APO of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of 
proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.305(a)(3). Timely written notification of the return or destruction 
of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby 
requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the terms of an 
APO is a sanctionable violation.

Notification to Interested Parties

administrative review in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 
777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4) and 351.221(b)(5).
