U.S. imports of aluminum sheet from China, magnesium from Israel

U.S. imports of aluminum sheet, magnesium

The U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) today announced its determination that a U.S. industry is “materially injured by reason of imports” of common alloy aluminum sheet from China. The U.S. Commerce Department determined the common alloy aluminum sheets were being subsidized and sold in the United States at less than fair value.

As noted in the ITC release, with today’s affirmative determinations, Commerce will issue antidumping and countervailing duty orders on imports of the product from China. 

The ITC also made “negative findings” concerning critical circumstances with regard to imports of the product from China.  As a result, imports of common alloy aluminum sheet from China will not be subject to retroactive antidumping or countervailing duties.

ITC findings on imports of magnesium from Israel

The ITC separately determined that there is a reasonable indication that a U.S. industry was materially injured by reason of imports of magnesium from Israel that were allegedly subsidized and sold in the United States at less than fair value. Read the ITC release.

As a result of the ITC’s affirmative determinations, Commerce will continue with its antidumping and countervailing duty investigations concerning imports of this product from Israel, with:

  • Preliminary countervailing duty determinations due on or about January 17, 2019
  • Preliminary antidumping duty determinations due on or about April 2, 2019
