On June 7, 2005, a North American Free Trade Agreement United States-Canada Binational Panel reviewing the International Trade Commission's finding that an industry in the United States was materially injured by reason of imports of hard red spring wheat from Canada, remanded the case to the International Trade Commission.

By decision issued on December 12, 2005, the Panel affirmed in full the International Trade Commission's determination on remand. Consistent with the decision of the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Timken Co. v. United States, 893 F.2d 337 (Fed. Cir. 1990), the Department of Commerce is notifying the public that the International Trade Commission's remand determination for hard red spring wheat from Canada and the Notice of Final Panel Action issued by the Panel reviewing the International Trade Commission's determination, discussed below, are not ``in harmony'' with the International Trade Commission's original results.
