The U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) began conducting an investigation to determine whether imports of aluminum extrusions from 15 countries are injuring the U.S. industry. A significant number of products would be affected. The USITC announcement was published in a Federal Register that you can access here.
On November 17, 2023 the USITC voted to continue investigations from China, Colombia, Ecuador, India, Indonesia, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, United Arab Emirates and Vietnam. The ITC indicated that “The Commission further found that the imports of these products from the Dominican Republic that are allegedly sold in the United States at less than fair value are negligible and voted to terminate the antidumping duty investigation concerning the Dominican Republic”.
If the USITC determination is negative, the investigation ends. If affirmative, the International Trade Administration issues an Antidumping and/or Countervailing order instructing Customs to collect cash deposits for estimated duties owed on all entries of the targeted merchandise.
An Antidumping and Countervailing Duties Overview pamphlet from the Congressional Research Services is also available for your review here.
