Wednesday, May 27, 2015
Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Importers have until this Friday, May 29, to request a review that could lower their antidumping and countervailing duties on imports of aluminum extrusions from China. The current China-wide AD cash deposit rate for the covered products is 33.18 percent, while the CV cash deposit rate is 137.65 percent. The Commerce Department is accepting requests for administrative reviews of these orders for the periods May 1, 2014, through April 30, 2015 (AD), and Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2014 (CV).

The AD and CV duty orders on aluminum extrusions are broad in scope and cover a myriad of finished and semi-finished products. Specifically, these orders cover aluminum extrusions that are shapes and forms, produced by an extrusion process, made from aluminum alloys having metallic elements corresponding to the alloy series designations published by The Aluminum Association commencing with the numbers 1, 3 and 6 (or proprietary equivalents or other certifying body equivalents).

Imports of covered items are provided for under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States subheadings 7604.21.0000, 7604.29.1000, 7604.29.3010, 7604.29.3050, 7604.29.5030, 7604.29.5060, 7608.20.0030 and 7608.20.0090. When entered as parts of other aluminum products the covered items may be classifiable under HTSUS subheadings 7610.10, 7610.90, 7615.19, 7615.20 and 7616.99, among others. In addition, fin evaporator coils may be classifiable under HTS subheadings 8418.99.8050 and 8418.99.8060.

For more information about these orders or how to request an administrative review, please contact Kristen Smith at (202) 730-4965 or Mark Ludwikowski at (202) 730-4967.
