The US Department of Commerce has published its final results in the antidumping (AD) investigation of aluminum alloy sheet imports from 18 countries.
In a release dated Mar 2, Commerce determined that the parties involved made sales at less than fair value in the US, in line with its preliminary order on October 9, 2020.
The final AD rates are as follows:
|South Korea||0-5.04 pc|
Commerce also affirmed the countervailable subsidies that exporters from India (4.89-35.25pc), Bahrain (4.83-6.44pc), and Turkey (2.56-4.34pc) received from their home countries. Meanwhile, it determined that Brazil did not receive subsidies.
Tom Dobbins, president and chief executive officer of the Aluminum Association, commended Commerce’s ruling, stating that sheet producers had invested about $1bn in expanding production and can now be safeguarded against dumping practices in the country.
