TRA found that unjustified import of Aluminium Extrusions hurt UK industry. The TRA's interim report has recommended a new trade remedy on Aluminium Extrusions from China. A provisional remedy will come into force while the investigation concludes. Mining, oil & gas, chemical, and refinery equipment use aluminium extrusions. Office window frames, doors, railings, cars, buses, trains, air conditioners, PWCs, and medical equipment use them.
When governments impose anti-dumping or countervailing duties on imports, the importer's costs go up and profits are wiped out overnight.
