The antidumping duties are less than those sought by the Washington state petitioner, the North Pacific Paper Company.
The final decision will not be until at least August 2nd.
The investigation was originally announced last August.
The investigation alleges that Canadian groundwood products used for newspapers were dumped at below-market rates into the United States.
