The US Department of Commerce (USDOC) initiated circumvention inquiries to determine whether the imports of certain aluminum foil, completed in South Korea and Thailand using China’s aluminum foil- and sheet-gauge products, are circumventing the existing anti-dumping duty (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) measures implemented by the US on China’s aluminum foil.

The products involved are aluminum foil with a thickness of 0.2 mm or less, in reels exceeding 25 pounds, excluding aluminum foil backed with paper, paperboard, plastics, or similar backing materials on one side or both sides of the aluminum foil, as well as etched capacitor foil and aluminum foil that is cut to shape.

These subject goods are under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings 7607.11.3000, 7607.11.6000, 7607.11.9030, 7607.11.9060, 7607.11.9090, 7607.19.6000, 7606.11.3060, 7606.11.6000, 7606.12.3045, 7606.12.3055, 7606.12.3090, 7606.12.6000, 7606.91.3090, 7606.91.6080, 7606.92.3090, and 7606.92.6080.
