U.S. ITA Aims To Make It Harder For Chinese Producers To Evade Aluminum Extrusion Dumping Duties

The U.S. International Trade Administration last week issued a ruling that, according to Politico’s “Morning Trade,” will “make it harder for Chinese producers and exporters to evade anti-dumping duties on aluminum extrusions.”

Specifically, according to Door and Window Market Magazine, the ruling found “that pallets imported into the country from the People’s Republic of China (PRC) made of 6xxx-series aluminum alloy are covered by U.S. duties.”

Alan Price, head of the Trade Practice Group at Wiley Rein LLP, praised the ruling. He said, “Since the orders have been in place, Chinese producers have engaged in an effort to evade the antidumping and countervailing duty orders on aluminum extrusions. [This] decision will help to address some of the most egregious evasion.”
