U.S. Dept. of Commerce launches new Aluminum Import Monitoring Program

As a further measure in the ongoing policy of protecting aluminum producers from unfair competition via dumping and transshipments, the Commerce Department launched its new Aluminum Import Monitoring and Analysis (AIM) system.

“The new program will enable Commerce and the public to better detect potential transshipment and circumvention involving aluminum products – helping to ensure that domestic producers can compete on a level playing field” stated Wilbur Ross, Secretary of Commerce

Tom Dobbins, president and CEO of the Aluminum Association (ABC has been a member and supporter of the AA for many years) said “The AIM program will help us to more quickly and fully understand trends in the aluminum market and, as appropriate, push back on countries that fail to follow the rules and laws that govern global trade”

Die Cast is more than just Molten Aluminum
