Shipping containersOn April 22, 2020, the United States International Trade Commission (“USITC”) unanimously determined that there was reasonable indication that a U.S. industry is materially injured by reason of imports of common alloy aluminum sheet from Bahrain, Brazil, Croatia, Egypt, Germany, Greece, India, Indonesia, Italy, Korea, Oman, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Taiwan, and Turkey that are allegedly sold in the United States at less than fair value and subsidized by the governments of the countries referenced above. Chairman David S. Johanson and Commissioners Rhonda K. Schmidtlein, Jason E. Kearns, Randolph J. Stayin, and Amy A. Karpel all voted in the affirmative.

The next step will be for the U.S. Department of Commerce (“Commerce”)  to continue with its antidumping and countervailing duty investigations concerning imports of common alloy aluminum sheet from the above countries.  Commerce will issue questionnaires to the largest exporters from each country and will analyze the submitted data to determine the extent of dumping and subsidization.  Commerce’s preliminary countervailing duty determinations are scheduled to be issued on June 3, 2020, and its antidumping duty determinations on August 17, 2020. The USITC report will be available after May 21, 2020.  See our petition summary for the scope of the investigations along with other key deadlines.

If you have any questions regarding the antidumping and/or countervailing duty investigations of imports of common ally aluminum sheet, please contact Husch Blackwell’s International Trade and Supply Chain team.
