Commerce Department launches case on Chinese aluminum common alloy sheet

November 29, 2017 - The U.S. Department of Commerce announced its decision to self-initiate an antidumping and countervailing duty (AD/CVD) investigation on imports of common alloy sheet from the People’s Republic of China. 

The Aluminum Association applauds the United States Department of Commerce’s decision today to self-initiate antidumping and countervailing duty investigations on imports of common alloy sheet from the People’s Republic of China.

The Commerce Department will now conduct investigations of whether imports of common alloy sheet from China are being sold in the United States at unfairly low prices, as well as whether Chinese producers of common alloy sheet are receiving actionable subsidies from the Government of China.

“The Aluminum Association and its members enthusiastically support the decision announced today by the Department of Commerce and Secretary Wilbur Ross to self-initiate unfair trade investigations concerning imports of common alloy sheet from China,” stated Heidi Brock, President & CEO of the Aluminum Association. “We are extremely grateful for the efforts and leadership of Secretary Ross in vigorously enforcing the U.S. trade laws.  The Aluminum Association and its members seek to help ensure that common alloy sheet from China entering the United States is fairly traded.”

In its announcement earlier today, the Commerce Department estimated a dumping margin of between 56.54 to 59.72 percent for imports of common alloy sheet from China. In addition, the Commerce Department announced that it will investigate subsidies provided by the Chinese government to common alloy sheet producers.
