On October 27, 2020, President Trump issued a Proclamation on Adjusting Imports of Aluminum into the United States, reinstating Canada’s exclusion from additional 10% duties under Section 232 on certain non-alloyed unwrought aluminum articles.

As a result, HTS number 9903.85.21 is no longer required for imports of non-alloyed unwrought aluminum articles that are the product of Canada provided for in HTS subheading 7601.10, effective with respect to goods entered for consumption, or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, on or after 12:01 a.m. eastern daylight time on September 1, 2020.

Goods entered prior to September 1, 2020, are still subject to additional duties under 9903.85.21.

ACE has been updated to reflect these modifications starting October 28, 2020.

Questions? Importers with questions related to Section 232 duties should contact the Trade Remedy Branch directly via email.
