UK’s Trade Remedies Authority (TRA) has launched an investigation into the imports of aluminum extrusions from the People’s Republic of China on June 21.
The case was initiated after producers with 50pc collective output of the total aluminum extrusion filed a complaint. The TRA was established as an independent body on June 1, following the passing of the Trade Act.
Before its launch, the body operated as the Trade Remedies Investigations Directorate of the Department of Internation Trade.
Trade remedy investigations were carried out by the EU Commission on the UK’s behalf until the UK was a part of the EU.
The materials being investigated in this case are rolled, drawn, extruded, forged, or cast aluminum extrusions exported from China, in the form of bars, rods, profiles, tubes, and pipes.
