On March 29, the Department of Commerce (Commerce) announced its affirmative final
determinations in the antidumping duty (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) investigations of
imports of aluminum extrusions from the People’s Republic of China (China).
The merchandise covered by these investigations is certain aluminum extrusions which are
shapes and forms produced via an extrusion process of aluminum alloys. The major alloying
elements in the subject merchandise are manganese, magnesium, and silicon. These products
are generally used in construction applications and are incorporated into window and door
frames and sills, gutters, and solar power frames. They serve as parts for cars, trucks and both
structural and decorative elements on boats. They also serve as furniture parts and in a variety
of other consumer and industrial goods.
• Imports of the subject merchandise are provided for under the following categories of the
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (“HTS”): 7604.21.0000, 7604.29.1000,
7604.29.3010, 7604.29.3050, 7604.29.5030, 7604.29.5060, 7608.20.0030, and 7608.20.0090.
The subject merchandise entered as parts of other aluminum products may be classifiable under
the following additional Chapter 76 subheadings: 7610.10, 7610.90, 7615.19, 7615.20, and
7616.99 as well as under other HTS chapters. While HTS subheadings are provided for

• The scope excludes finished merchandise containing aluminum extrusions as parts that are fully

entered unassembled in a “finished goods kit.” A finished goods kit is understood to mean a
packaged combination of parts that contains, at the time of importation, all of the necessary
parts to fully assemble a final finished good and requires no further finishing or fabrication,
such as cutting or punching, and is assembled ‘as is’ into a finished product.
