The US Department of Commerce has raised the antidumping (AD) duties imposed on exporters of aluminum foil from China due to ministerial error. 

 

On Feb 25, Commerce published its final results for the AD investigation into imports of aluminum foil from China. However, in a notice published on Apr 2, the agency increased the AD rate for Xiamen Xiashun Aluminum Foil from 47.57pc to 48.64pc since it made a ministerial error in calculating the value-added taxes levied by the local government. 

 

Thus, the AD margin for all other companies chosen for individual review also increased. A table detailing the new duties is below. Commerce will work with US Customs and Border Protection to implement the new cash deposit requirements after 35 days from the publication date.
