Background

On May 23, 2006, the Department received a timely request from Terrace, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.214, for a new shipper review of the AD order on certain softwood lumber products from Canada, which has a May anniversary month.[1] Terrace was incorporated in Canada on April 7, 2005. Terrace made its first sale shipped to the United States in September 2005. Terrace states that it sells 100 percent of its products to exporter/importer International Forest Products Corporation (IFP). Terrace is the first party in the chain of distribution with knowledge that the merchandise is destined for the United States.

As required by 19 CFR 351.214 (b)(2)(i) and 19 CFR 351.214 (b)(2)(iii)(A), Terrace certified that it did not export certain softwood lumber to the United States during the period of investigation (POI), and that it has never been affiliated with any exporter or producer which exported certain softwood lumber during the POI.[2] In addition, IFP, as the exporter for Terrace, certified that it also did not export certain softwood lumber to the United States during the POI, and that it has never been affiliated with any exporter or producer which exported certain softwood lumber during the POI.[3] Furthermore, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iv), the company submitted documentation establishing the date on which it first shipped the subject merchandise to the United States, the date of entry of that first shipment, the volume of that and subsequent shipments, and the date of the first sale to an unaffiliated customer in the United States.

Initiation of Review

In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b), and based on information on the record, we are initiating an AD new shipper review for Terrace. We intend to issue the preliminary results of this new shipper review not later than 180 days after initiation of this review. We intend to issue final results of this review no later than 90 days after the date on which the preliminary results are issued. See 19 CFR 351.214(i).
