European Commission declared on 24th August 2020 that aluminium extrusions from China will be subject to registration by national customs authorities as of 25th August 2020 in the regards to the ongoing extrusions anti-dumping investigation initiated in February this year. European Commission has directed the customs authorities to take the appropriate steps to register imports, so that anti-dumping measures may subsequently and retroactively be applied against those imports from the date of registration.

On 14 February 2020, the European Commission made public the opening of an anti-dumping investigation into aluminium extrusions originating from China. The investigation follows a complaint by European Aluminium whose member companies are adversely impacted by the dumping of Chinese aluminium extrusions. Chinese imports of extrusions have reached a significant market share and Chinese imports of semi-fabricated aluminium products have more than doubled in the past five years.

European Aluminium hails this move and desires the Commission to adopt effective anti-dumping duties promptly. European Aluminium’s Director-General Gerd Götz said “We applaud the Commission for taking this necessary and bold measure. This underlines the Commission’s commitment to protecting the European aluminium industry from the damaging effects of unfair trade. We hope the registration measure will very soon be followed by effective anti-dumping measures that can more structurally address these issues.”
