  • One investigation concerns imports of aluminum wire and cable from China. It is alleged these are being dumped in the United States and that producers in China are receiving unfair subsidies. The alleged dumping margins range from 53.54% to 63.47%. In addition, there are 26 subsidy programs alleged, including tax programs, export subsidy programs, grant programs, loan programs, among other programs. Read the Commerce Department release
  • The other investigations concern refillable stainless steel kegs from China, Germany, and Mexico. It is alleged that these kegs are being dumped in the United States and also that producers in China are receiving unfair subsidies. The alleged dumping margins are 204.42% for China, 72.80% for Germany, and 18.48% for Mexico. In addition, there are 26 Chinese subsidy programs alleged, including policy lending, export loans, income tax deductions and exemptions, as well as grants for energy conservation and international market expansion, among others.

If Commerce makes affirmative findings in either of these investigations, and if the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) determines that dumped and/or unfairly subsidized U.S. imports of these products are causing injury to the U.S. industry, Commerce will impose duties on the imports in the amount of dumping and/or unfair subsidization found to exist.
