Export charge rates for 2013
The export charge rate is based on the region of origin of the softwood lumber product being exported to the United States. The region of origin is where the product underwent its first primary processing. However, where sawlogs are harvested in an Option A or an Option B region and undergo first primary processing in a region whose exports are excluded, the resulting softwood lumber product is deemed to have been exported from the Option A or Option B region.
Option A The regions of British Columbia interior and British Columbia coast are defined in the British Columbia Forest Regions and Districts Regulations.
The Option A regions are BC coast, BC interior and AB.
