POSTPONEMENT OF PRELIMINARY DETERMINATION:
The Department of Commerce (the Department) is postponing the deadline for issuance of the preliminary determination in the antidumping duty investigation of certain softwood lumber products from Canada until October 15, 2001.
On April 23, 2001, the Department initiated an antidumping investigation of certain softwood lumber products from Canada. See Initiation of Antidumping Duty Investigation: Certain Softwood Lumber Products from Canada, 66 FR 21328 (April 30, 2001). The notice stated that the Department would issue its preliminary determination no later than 140 days after the date of initiation (i.e., September 10, 2001). At the request of the petitioner, on July 30, 2001, the Department postponed the date of preliminary determination by two weeks, until September 24, 2001.
In accordance with Section 733(c)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, (the Act), on August 23, 2001, the petitioner filed a request that the Department further postpone the preliminary determination in this investigation by three weeks. The petitioner's request for postponement was timely, and the Department finds no compelling reason to deny the request. Therefore, in accordance with section 733(c)(1) of the Act, the Department is postponing the deadline for issuing this preliminary determination until October 15, 2001.
This postponement is in accordance with section 733(c) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(b)(2).Start Signature
