Aluminum Products Circumventing AD/CV Duty Orders, ITA Finds

Wednesday, July 26, 2017
Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The International Trade Administration has determined that heat-treated extruded aluminum products that meet the chemical specifications for 5050-grade aluminum alloy, regardless of producer, exporter, or importer, constitute later-developed goods that are circumventing the antidumping and countervailing duty orders on aluminum extrusions from China and should therefore be included within the scope of those orders.

As a result, for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after March 21, 2016 (the date of publication of the initiation of this inquiry), the ITA will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to continue to suspend liquidation of such entries and require AD/CV cash deposits at the rates applicable to the exporter.

The ITA had considered requiring importers of certain aluminum extrusions who claim those goods are not subject to these AD/CV duty orders to certify that the goods were not produced from heat-treated 5050-grade aluminum alloy but has decided not to require importers to maintain a certification at this time.
