The Department of Commerce has published its preliminary determination on an anti-dumping (ADD) investigation covering aluminum extrusions from 14 countries. The investigation covers finished products made wholly of extruded aluminum and parts, accessories, and sub-assemblies that contain extruded aluminum. Due to the very broad scope of the case, importers are urged to look carefully at any products containing aluminum extrusions that they may import from any of the countries that were a part of the investigation. Cash deposits equal to the preliminary rates are due for any “in scope” goods entered on or after May 7, 2024. Those deposit amounts are based on the country of origin and the producer or exporter of the aluminum; the rates range from 0% to 594.55%. Countries included in the investigation, along with the corresponding case numbers, are listed below; four countries also are under the scope of a countervailing duties (CVD) case:

  • China (A-570-158, C570-159)
  • Columbia (A-301-806)
  • Ecuador (A-331-804)
  • India (A-533-920)
  • Indonesia (A-560-840, C-560-841)
  • Italy (A-475-846)
  • Korea, Republic of (A-580-918)
  • Malaysia (A-557-826)
  • Mexico (A-201-860, C-201-861)
  • Taiwan (A-583-874)
  • Thailand (A-549-847)
  • Turkey (A-489-850, C-489-851)
  • United Arab Emirates (A-520-810)
  • Vietnam (A-552-837)

The country-specific cases have been published in the Federal Register, and each includes the scope of the investigation and the deposit rate required for each exporter/producer. If an exporter or producer is not listed, the All Other rate must be used. These rates can also be found on an International Trade Administration (ITA) page found here. You can find links to all the published notices from the May 7 Federal Register here. In the International Trade Administration Section, a link for the aluminum extrusions for each country is listed.

The ITA has also issued a preliminary scope decision memorandum, which provides fuller details on items that are or are not under the scope of this investigation. Note that the HTS codes provided in this document and included in the case decisions are for guidance only; it is the scope of the case that determines the standing of a product. This memorandum is on the ACCESS website, which can be found here.

The final determination is expected to be published in September and could include further changes. Interested parties have until May 22 at 5 p.m. Eastern time to submit comments and request a determination on whether their products are within the scope of the investigation. These must be filed electronically via Enforcement and Compliance’s ACCESS unless an exception applies. The Electronic Filing Procedures Regulations and the ACCESS Handbook on Electronic Filing Procedures are both found on the access.trade.gov website.

If an allowable exemption to the electronic filing applies under 19 CFR § 351.303(b) or documents contain 500 or more pages, they may be filed manually. Manual submissions must be accompanied by an ACCESS cover sheet and must be delivered to:

Secretary of Commerce
Attention: Enforcement & Compliance
APO/Dockets Unit, Room 18022
