UK’s Trade Remedies Authority has initiated a reconsideration of its recommendation on anti-dumping measures of imports of Aluminium Extrusions from China. The initiation follows a submission received from a UK producer requesting that the TRA reconsider its recommendation. The UK producer has provided TRA with new industry information that could affect the TRA’s original findings.Reconsiderations are an established part of the UK’s tax regime, with many different arms of the Government incorporating them as part of their standard operating procedures. They are one of the main ways businesses can continue to make their case once a decision that affects them has been made. At the end of the reconsideration process, the TRA will reach a reconsidered decision either upholding or varying its recommendation and will notify this to the Secretary of State for Business and Trade.During its original investigation, the TRA determined that damage to the UK industry was occurring, having found clear evidence of price undercutting, indicating that UK businesses were struggling to compete with the dumped imports. It therefore recommended that a new anti-dumping duty be applied to imports of Aluminium Extrusions from China to the UK. The TRA also gave a final negative determination on certain types of large aluminium exclusions (meaning that the measure on these products will not be extended), as the TRA found no evidence that they are produced in the UK.In December, the Secretary of State accepted the TRA’s recommendation that a new anti-dumping duty be applied to imports of Aluminium Extrusions from China to the UK and that duties on large Aluminium Extrusions should not be applied. Following the Secretary of State’s decision, the TRA received a submission from one domestic producer asking the TRA to reconsider the original recommendation.
