Webinar on aluminum antidumping, countervailing duty investigation

UNITED STATES — RVIA members are invited to participate in a free webinar hosted by the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) on Jan. 16 at 11:30 a.m. EST to learn more about the aluminum antidumping and countervailing duty investigation and how it could impact RV manufacturers. Attorneys from the law firm Mowry & Grimson will brief participants on the latest developments and upcoming steps. In December, the Department of Commerce (DOC) announced it had “self-initiated” an antidumping and countervailing duty investigation on alloy aluminum sheet from China. The subject of the investigation is “common alloy aluminum sheet, between 0.2 mm and 6.2 mm in thickness, in coils or cut-to-length.” Results of this investigation have the potential to significantly raise the cost of aluminum for RVIA members. The preliminary hearing was held on Dec. 21, 2017 before the International Trade Commission (ITC). The ITC has stated that it will make its initial threat determination by Jan. 16. The next step will be for DOC to investigate specific exporters in China to calculate a tariff that will be applied to those exports. The potential duties for antidumping could be nearly 60 percent, which is what DOC estimates are the dumping margins for Chinese aluminum alloy sheet. At the end of the preliminary process, the ITC will reexamine the domestic industry. RVIA will keep members updated as this case progresses and assist members in engaging with the ITC during the next phase of the investigation. RVIA is working closely with NMMA, the National Association of Trailer Manufacturers (NATM) and other interested trade association partners to oppose these potential duties which would significantly increase the price of aluminum, whether from China or from domestic producers.
