                the Department of the Treasury website.
                Notice of CFIUS Action
                 The Committee, taking into consideration the factors identified on
                the Committee's section of the Department of the Treasury website, has
                determined, under the authority of section 721 of the Defense
                Production Act of 1950, as amended, and 31 CFR 800.1001(a), that: (1)
                Australia has established and is effectively utilizing a robust process
                to analyze foreign investments for national security risks and to
                facilitate coordination with the United States on matters relating to
                investment security; and (2) Canada has established and is effectively
                utilizing a robust process to analyze foreign investments for national
                security risks and to facilitate coordination with the United States on
                matters relating to investment security.
