On October 4, 2023, U.S. Aluminum Extruders Coalition and the United Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and Service Workers International Union filed a petition for the imposition of antidumping and countervailing duties on imports of Aluminum Extrusions from Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, India, Indonesia, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, the People’s Republic of China, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, and Vietnam. The petition alleges dumping margins of 256.58% (China), 179.53% (Colombia), 66.46% (Ecuador), 43.41% (India), 112.21% (Indonesia), 37.52% (Italy), 37.52% (Malaysia), 111.38% (Mexico), 71.03% (South Korea), 116.19% (Taiwan), 72.20% (Thailand), 33.79% (Turkey), 39.80% (United Arab Emirates), 53.75% (Vietnam). The petition identifies certain foreign producers/exporters and U.S. importers of the investigated product.
The merchandise subject to this investigation is aluminum extrusions, regardless of form, finishing, or fabrication, whether assembled with other parts or unassembled, whether coated, painted, anodized, or thermally improved. The petition provides additional detailed scope description and specific product exclusions.
The proposed scope is significantly more extensive than the scope of the previous Aluminum Extrusions from China Orders (A-570-967/C-570-968). The proposed scope includes all non-finished articles (e.g., motor vehicle subassemblies, but not finished motor vehicles) produced and exported from any country (including those not subject to investigation) containing a subject aluminum extrusion produced in a country subject to investigation. It also includes aluminum extrusions from China and other named countries which Commerce and the Courts have excluded from the scope of the China case. Companies importing products from any country which contain aluminum extrusions should contact counsel as to the potential scope of this new investigation. Companies impacted by the investigation have the opportunity to submit comments on various issues, including the scope of the investigation.
The projected date of International Trade Commission’s Preliminary Conference is October 25, 2023. The earliest theoretical date for retroactive suspension of liquidation for AD is December 13, 2023; and for CVD is October 24, 2023.
Please feel free to contact one of our attorneys for further information, including a complete scope description, complete projected schedule for the AD/CVD investigation; the volume and value of imports; list of alleged subsidy programs; and list of identified foreign exporters and U.S. importers.
