US Department of Commerce announced affirmative preliminary determinations in the antidumping duty investigations of imports of common alloy aluminum sheet from Bahrain, Brazil, Croatia, Egypt, Germany, Greece, India, Indonesia, Italy, Oman, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Taiwan, and Turkey. This follows recent preliminary affirmative countervailing duty determinations for imports of CAAS from Bahrain, Brazil, India and Turkey. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross said “The Department’s aluminum sheet investigations constitute the broadest U.S. trade enforcement action in two decades. We look forward to receiving parties’ comments on the preliminary determinations that aluminum sheet imports from 18 countries have been dumped, and in some cases unfairly subsidized, into the U.S. market.”

Commerce preliminarily determined that exporters have dumped common alloy aluminum sheet in the United States at the following rates:
4.21 percent for Bahrain
49.48 percent to 136.78 percent for Brazil
3.22 percent for Croatia
10.42 percent for Egypt
51.18 percent to 352.71 percent for Germany
2.72 percent for Greece
0 percent to 47.92 percent for India
32.12 percent for Indonesia
0.00 percent to 29.13 percent for Italy
3.53 percent for Oman
12.51 percent to 83.94 percent for Romania
11.24 percent to 25.84 percent for Serbia
4.80 percent for Slovenia
8.98 percent for South Africa
5.04 percent for South Korea
3.75 percent to 23.32 percent for Spain
18.02 percent for Taiwan
12.71 percent to 12.90 percent for Turkey

As a result of these decisions, Commerce will instruct US Customs and Border Protection to collect cash deposits from importers of common alloy aluminum sheet from the above-named countries based on the preliminary rates noted above.

The petitioners are the Aluminum Association Common Alloy Aluminum Sheet Trade Enforcement Working Group and its individual members, Aleris Rolled Products Inc (Richmond, VA), Arconic Inc (Pittsburgh, PA), Constellium Rolled Products Ravenswood LLC (Ravenswood, WV), JW Aluminum Company (Williamsport, PA), Novelis Corporation (Atlanta, GA) and Texarkana Aluminum Inc (Texarkana, TX). Commerce is scheduled to announce its final determinations in these cases on or about February 22, 2021.

If Commerce’s final determinations are affirmative, the U.S. International Trade Commission will be scheduled to make its final injury determination on or about April 5, 2021. If Commerce makes affirmative final determinations of dumping and the ITC makes an affirmative final injury determination, Commerce will issue AD orders. If Commerce makes a negative final determination or the ITC makes a negative final determination of injury in an investigation, the investigation will be terminated and no order will be issued.
