USITC concludes favorable decision for the Dominican Republic in aluminum extrusions investigation

Washington, US.- The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) has completed an investigation into the import of aluminum extrusions to the United States from various countries, rendering a favorable decision for the Dominican Republic. The Embassy of the Dominican Republic in Washington DC closely monitored the case and reported the decision available in publication 5477 on the USITC website.

The Commission’s report specifically concludes the antidumping investigation related to the Dominican Republic, stating that “the investigation regarding imports from the Dominican Republic is concluded.” This pertains to extrusions allegedly being sold in the United States below their reasonable value. Notably, the Dominican Republic was the sole country favored in the conclusions of this research among the 15 countries evaluated.

The USITC found “reasonable evidence that a United States industry is materially harmed by imports” from several countries, with the exception of the Dominican Republic. As an independent and nonpartisan federal agency, the USITC conducts trade-related mandates, providing analysis to the US President and Congress on international trade issues. It serves as a respected forum for resolving commercial and intellectual property disputes.

The investigation’s objective was to determine whether the imports negatively impacted the domestic industry. Petitions for these investigations were submitted on October 4, 2023, by the US Aluminum Extruders Coalition 3 and the International Union of Steel, Paper, and Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industries Workers and Services (“USW”). The conclusions of the investigation were presented months later.
