The International Trade Administration has issued its preliminary affirmative dumping determinations on aluminum extrusions from China, Colombia, Ecuador, India, Indonesia, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, and Vietnam.

Under these determinations, AD duty cash deposits are required at the following rates for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after May 7. (AD duty liability could also be retroactive should the ITA issue affirmative critical circumstances determinations at a later date.)

China – zero and 365.19 percent

Colombia – 8.85 to 34.47 percent

Ecuador – 17.23 to 51.2 percent

India – 3.44 to 39.05 percent

Indonesia – 5.65 to 112.21 percent

Italy – zero to 41.67 percent

Malaysia – zero to 27.51 percent

Mexico – 9.18 to 82.03 percent

South Korea – zero to 43.56 percent

Taiwan – 0.73 to 67.86 percent

Thailand – 2.02 to 4.04 percent

Turkey – 45.41 to 594.55 percent

UAE – 9.13 to 42.29 percent

Vietnam – 2.85 and 41.84 percent

The ITA has revised the scope of these investigations, which is now quite extensive (see appendix I of this notice as an example), and has said that further revisions, modifications, and/or clarifications are possible.

In light of this and other complexities concerning these investigations, ST&R anticipates that a number of issues will arise as to which products are and are not covered. Importers should therefore carefully consider their goods, including finished products that include aluminum extrusions as material components, to avoid unintended duty liability.

For help determining whether your goods may be subject to these investigations, please contact attorney Kristen Smith at (202) 730-4965.
