The US Department of Commerce has denied a separate antidumping (AD) rate for more than 50 Chinese aluminum extrusion companies.
The department announced in a notice that these companies would continue paying cash deposits of 86.01pc, the AD rate determined for all China-wide entities. Commerce cited as a key factor, the inability of these companies to demonstrate their eligibility for a separate rate during the review of their exports.
The exports from the 52 companies under this order were reviewed for the period May 1, 2018 to April 30, 2019. Additionally, Commerce said the parties had failed to submit comments in response to its preliminary results published in the Federal Register earlier.
