Davis Index: Market Intelligence for the Global Metals and Recycled Materials Markets

The US Department of Commerce has preliminarily determined antidumping (AD) margins on common alloy aluminum sheets (CAAS) from 18 countries. 


In an Oct 9 release, Commerce made its broadest trade enforcement in two decades by levying AD duties on CAAS imported from Bahrain, Brazil, Croatia, Egypt, Germany, Greece, India, Indonesia, Italy, Oman, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Taiwan, and Turkey.


The investigation, which reviewed the alleged indiscretions in 2019, was initiated on a petition by many major American producers, such as Aleris, Constellium, Novellis, JW Aluminum, and the Aluminum Association. In line with the preliminary results, Commerce will direct US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to collect cash deposits from the producers on the rates mentioned in the table below. 


Commerce will publish its final verdict on February 22, 2021, while the US International Trade Commission will choose to affirm or deny this determination by April 5, 2021.
