The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) today determined that there is a reasonable indication that a U.S. industry is materially injured by reason of imports of aluminum foil from Armenia, Brazil, Oman, Russia, and Turkey that are allegedly sold in the United States at less than fair value and subsidized by the governments of Oman and Turkey.
Chair Jason E. Kearns, Vice Chair Randolph J. Stayin, and Commissioners David S. Johanson, Rhonda K. Schmidtlein, and Amy A. Karpel voted in the affirmative.
As a result of the Commission’s affirmative determinations, the U.S. Department of Commerce will continue its investigations of imports of aluminum foil from Armenia, Brazil, Oman, Russia, and Turkey, with its preliminary countervailing duty determinations due on or about December 23, 2020, and its preliminary antidumping duty determination due on or about March 8, 2021.
The Commission’s public report Aluminum Foil from Armenia, Brazil, Oman, Russia, and Turkey (Inv. Nos. 701-TA-658-659 and 731-TA-1538-1542 (Preliminary), USITC Publication 5138, November 2020) will contain the views of the Commission and information developed during the investigations.
