On December 12, 2005, the Department of Commerce (the Department) determined that certain softwood lumber products from Canada are being sold in the United States at less than fair value, as provided in section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). See Notice of Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Certain Softwood Lumber Products from Canada, 70 FR 73437 (December 12, 2005) (Final Results). On December 14, 2005, the petitioner, the Abitibi Group  (Abitibi), Buchanan Lumber Sales Inc. (Buchanan), Canfor Corporation  (Canfor), Weyerhaeuser Start Printed Page 3459Company (Weyerhaeuser) and, the Quebec Lumber Manufacturers Association (QLMA) filed timely ministerial error allegations pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224(c)(2). On December 19 and 21, we received rebuttal comments from the petitioner and Canfor. Also on December 21, we received a request from the Canadian Lumber Remanufacturers Association (CLRA) that a spelling error in the name of Brittania Lumber Company Limited be corrected.
Scope of the Order
The products covered by this order are softwood lumber, flooring and siding (softwood lumber products). Softwood lumber products include all products classified under headings 4407.1000, 4409.1010, 4409.1090, and 4409.1020, respectively, of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), and any softwood lumber, flooring and siding described below. These softwood lumber products include:
(1) Coniferous wood, sawn or chipped lengthwise, sliced or peeled, whether or not planed, sanded or finger-jointed, of a thickness exceeding six millimeters;
(2) Coniferous wood siding (including strips and friezes for parquet flooring, not assembled) continuously shaped (tongued, grooved, rabbeted, chamfered, v-jointed, beaded, molded, rounded or the like) along any of its edges or faces, whether or not planed, sanded or finger-jointed;
(3) Other coniferous wood (including strips and friezes for parquet flooring, not assembled) continuously shaped (tongued, grooved, rabbeted, chamfered, v-jointed, beaded, molded, rounded or the like) along any of its edges or faces (other than wood moldings and wood dowel rods) whether or not planed, sanded or finger-jointed; and
(4) Coniferous wood flooring (including strips and friezes for parquet flooring, not assembled) continuously shaped (tongued, grooved, rabbeted, chamfered, v-jointed, beaded, molded, rounded or the like) along any of its edges or faces, whether or not planed, sanded or finger-jointed.
Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) purposes, the written description of the merchandise under investigation is dispositive. Preliminary scope exclusions and clarifications were published in three separate Federal Register notices.
Softwood lumber products excluded from the scope:
Trusses and truss kits, properly classified under HTSUS 4418.90
Assembled box spring frames
Pallets and pallet kits, properly classified under HTSUS 4415.20
Edge-glued wood, properly classified under HTSUS 4422.214.171.124 (formerly HTSUS 44126.96.36.199)
Properly classified complete door frames
Properly classified complete window frames
Properly classified furniture
Softwood lumber products excluded from the scope only if they meet certain requirements:
Stringers (pallet components used for runners): if they have at least two notches on the side, positioned at equal distance from the center, to properly accommodate forklift blades, properly classified under HTSUS 44188.8.131.52 (formerly HTSUS 44184.108.40.206).
Box-spring frame kits: if they contain the following wooden pieces—two side rails, two end (or top) rails and varying numbers of slats. The side rails and the end rails should be radius-cut at both ends. The kits should be individually packaged, they should contain the exact number of wooden components needed to make a particular box spring frame, with no further processing required. None of the components exceeds 1″ in actual thickness or 83″ in length.
Radius-cut box-spring-frame components, not exceeding 1″ in actual thickness or 83″ in length, ready for assembly without further processing. The radius cuts must be present on both ends of the boards and must be substantial cuts so as to completely round one corner.
Fence pickets requiring no further processing and properly classified under HTSUS 4421.90.70, 1″ or less in actual thickness, up to 8″ wide, 6′ or less in length, and have finials or decorative cuttings that clearly identify them as fence pickets. In the case of dog-eared fence pickets, the corners of the boards should be cut off so as to remove pieces of wood in the shape of isosceles right angle triangles with sides measuring 3/4 inch or more. U.S. origin lumber shipped to Canada for minor processing and imported into the United States, is excluded from the scope of this order if the following conditions are met: (1) The processing occurring in Canada is limited to kiln-drying, planing to create smooth-to-size board, and sanding, and (2) the importer establishes to CBP's satisfaction that the lumber is of U.S. origin.
Softwood lumber products contained in single family home packages or kits, regardless of tariff classification, are excluded from the scope of the orders if the following criteria are met:
1. The imported home package or kit constitutes a full package of the number of wooden pieces specified in the plan, design or blueprint necessary to produce a home of at least 700 square feet produced to a specified plan, design or blueprint;
2. The package or kit must contain all necessary internal and external doors and windows, nails, screws, glue, subfloor, sheathing, beams, posts, connectors and, if included in purchase contract, decking, trim, drywall and roof shingles specified in the plan, design or blueprint;
3. Prior to importation, the package or kit must be sold to a retailer of complete home packages or kits pursuant to a valid purchase contract referencing the particular home design plan or blueprint, and signed by a customer not affiliated with the importer;
4. The whole package must be imported under a single consolidated entry when permitted by CBP, whether or not on a single or multiple trucks, rail cars or other vehicles, which shall be on the same day except when the home is over 2,000 square feet;
5. The following documentation must be included with the entry documents:
A copy of the appropriate home design, plan, or blueprint matching the entry;
A purchase contract from a retailer of home kits or packages signed by a customer not affiliated with the importer;
A listing of inventory of all parts of the package or kit being entered that conforms to the home design package being entered;
In the case of multiple shipments on the same contract, all items listed immediately above which are included in the present shipment shall be identified as well.
We have determined that the excluded products listed above are outside the scope of this order provided the specified conditions are met. Lumber products that CBP may classify as stringers, radius cut box-spring-frame components, and fence pickets, not Start Printed Page 3460conforming to the above requirements, as well as truss components, pallet components, and door and window frame parts, are covered under the scope of this order and may be classified under HTSUS subheadings 44220.127.116.11, 4418.104.22.168, and 4422.214.171.124. Due to changes in the 2002 HTSUS whereby subheading 44126.96.36.199 and 44188.8.131.52 were changed to 44184.108.40.206 and 44220.127.116.11, respectively, we are adding these subheadings as well.
In addition, this scope language has been further clarified to now specify that all softwood lumber products entered from Canada claiming non-subject status based on U.S. country of origin will be treated as non-subject U.S.-origin merchandise under the antidumping and countervailing duty orders, provided that these softwood lumber products meet the following condition: upon entry, the importer, exporter, Canadian processor and/or original U.S. producer establish to CBP's satisfaction that the softwood lumber entered and documented as U.S.-origin softwood lumber was first produced in the United States as a lumber product satisfying the physical parameters of the softwood lumber scope. The presumption of non-subject status can, however, be rebutted by evidence demonstrating that the merchandise was substantially transformed in Canada.
Amended Final Results
In accordance with section 751(h) of the Act, we have determined that ministerial errors were made in our Final Results margin calculations. For a detailed discussion of the ministerial error allegations and the Department's analysis, see Memorandum to Stephen J. Claeys, Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Certain Softwood Lumber Products from Canada, regarding Ministerial Error Allegations, dated January 12, 2006, which is on file in the Central Records Unit (“CRU”), room B-099 of the main Department building.
In accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e), we are amending the final results of the antidumping duty administrative review of lumber from Canada to correct these ministerial errors.

10. Canfor's weighted-average margin is based upon a weighted-average of Canfor's and Slocan's respective cash deposit rates prior to the merger. See Memorandum from Salim Bhabhrawala, International Trade Compliance Analyst to The File, Re: Analysis Memorandum For Canfor Corporation (December 5, 2005). We also note that, during the POR, Sinclar Enterprises Ltd. (Sinclar) acted as an affiliated reseller for Lakeland, an affiliate of Canfor. In this review, we reviewed the sales of Canfor and its affiliates; therefore, Canfor's weighted-average margin applies to all sales of subject merchandise produced by any member of the Canfor Group and sold by Sinclar. As Sinclar also separately requested a review, any sales of subject merchandise produced by another manufacturer and sold by Sinclar will receive the “Review-Specific Average” rate. Finally, we note that Canadian Forest Products, Ltd. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Canfor and will receive Canfor's weighted-average margin.Back to Citation
