A petition filed March 9 alleges that common aluminum sheet from Bahrain, Brazil, Croatia, Egypt, Germany, Greece, India, Indonesia, Italy, Oman, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Taiwan, and Turkey is being sold at less than fair value in the U.S. market and that subject merchandise from Bahrain, Brazil, India, and Turkey is benefiting from countervailable subsidies. The alleged average dumping margins range from 15.90 to 151.00 percent.

Common alloy aluminum sheet is a flat rolled aluminum product that is used in a variety of applications, including as gutters and downspouts, building facades, street signs, license plates, electrical boxes, pontoon boats, and tractor trailers for trucks. The petition covers flat-rolled aluminum products having a thickness of 6.3 mm or less, but greater than 0.2 mm, in coils or cut-to-length, regardless of width, manufactured from a 1XXX-, 3XXX-, or 5XXX-series alloy. Subject merchandise includes both unclad aluminum sheet as well as multi-alloy, clad aluminum sheet. Excluded from the scope is aluminum can stock that is suitable for use in the manufacture of aluminum beverage cans, lids, or tabs.

The Department of Commerce and the International Trade Commission will next determine whether to launch AD and/or CV duty and injury investigations, respectively, on this product. There are strict statutory deadlines associated with these proceedings, so affected companies that wish to protect their interests should contact Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg as soon as possible.
