On 16 August 2016, the Commissioner of the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission initiated an anti-subsidy investigation on imports of aluminium extrusions from Viet Nam and Malaysia (Anti-dumping Notice No. 2016/77). The product subject to investigation is classified under the following HS code subheadings: 7604.10.00; 7604.21.00; 7604.29.00; 7608.10.00; 7608.20.00; 7610.10.00; and 7610.90.00. This follows the application lodged by Capral Limited.

On 20 April 2017, the Commissioner of the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission imposed a provisional countervailing duty on imports of the subject good from Malaysia. The rate of duty is 3.2% of the export price. This is with the exception of the following companies: Press Metal Berhad, LB, Aluminium Berhad, Superb Aluminium Industries Sdn Bhd, Kamco Aluminium Sdn Bhd, Milleon Extruder Sdn Bhd and Genesis Aluminium Industries Sdn Bhdwhich, which exports are exempt from countervailing duties.

On 27 June 2017, the Australian authorities imposed a definitive countervailing duty on imports of the subject good from Malaysia. The rate of duty is 3.2% of the proportion of the export price. A number of Malaysian companies are exempt from the countervailing duty.
