Anti-dumping

In a petition filed on March 9, 2017, the Aluminum Association Trade Enforcement Working Group requested that antidumping investigations be instituted against imports of aluminum foil from China. On October 27, 2017, the Department of Commerce announced its affirmative preliminary determination in the investigation.

On February 27, 2018, the Department of Commerce announced its affirmative final determinations in the antidumping duty and countervailing duty  investigations of imports of certain aluminum foil from China.

In the AD investigation, Commerce found that the mandatory respondents, Jiangsu Dingsheng New Materials Joint-Stock Co., Ltd./Hangzhou Teemful Aluminum Co., Ltd./Hangzhou Five Star Aluminum Co., Ltd./Dingsheng Aluminum Industries (Hong Kong) Trading Co. Ltd./Hangzhou Dingsheng Import & Export Co., Ltd./Walson (HK) Trading Co., Limited/Inner Mongolia Liansheng New Energy Material Joint-Stock Co., Ltd. (collectively, Dingsheng), and Jiangsu Zhongji Lamination Materials Stock Co., Ltd./ Jiangsu Huafeng Aluminum Industry Co., Ltd. (collectively, Zhongji) were dumping at margins of 106.09 percent and 48.64 percent, respectively. Commerce also found that 14 companies are entitled to a separate rate of 84.94 percent, and all other companies are assigned the China-wide entity dumping margin of 106.09 percent based on adverse facts available due to the China-wide entity’s failure to respond to Commerce’s questionnaire.
