Jeffrey I. Kessler, the U.S. Commerce Department Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance (E&C) announced the addition of 60 days to the deadline for all antidumping (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) administrative reviews. This announcement, made on July 21st 2020, is due to the continuation of the COVID-19 pandemic and is similar to the first decision to push the deadline back by 50 days made on April 24th 2020. This will therefore delay the duty adjustments anticipated in August on Canadian softwood lumber entering the U.S. by approximately 60 days.
