US ITC Finds Injury by Aluminium Sheet Imports from 16 Countries

The United States International Trade Commission has determined that US industry is materially injured by reason of imports of common alloy aluminum

The United States International Trade Commission has determined that US industry is materially injured by reason of imports of common alloy aluminum sheet from Bahrain, Brazil, Croatia, Egypt, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Oman, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Taiwan, and Turkey that the US Department of Commerce has determined are sold in the United States at less than fair value and subsidized by the governments of Bahrain, India, and Turkey. As a result of the Commission’s affirmative determinations, Commerce will issue antidumping duty orders on imports of this product from Bahrain, Brazil, Croatia, Egypt, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Oman, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Taiwan, and Turkey; and countervailing duty orders on imports of this product from Bahrain, India, and Turkey.

The Commission also made negative critical circumstances findings with regard to subsidized imports of this product from Turkey and dumped imports of this product from Indonesia. As a result, these imports will not be subject to retroactive countervailing or antidumping duties.
