Robert DeFrancesco Discusses CIT Decision Affirming Duty on Aluminum Oven Handles from China

Robert E. DeFrancesco, III, a partner in Wiley’s International Trade Practice, was quoted in a Law360 article regarding an April 6 U.S. Court of International Trade (CIT) decision affirming duties on a type of aluminum oven door handle imported from China. The CIT ruling – which approved a U.S. Department of Commerce redetermination that the duty falls within the scope of tariffs on similar products – said that the companies objecting to the tariffs had waived their right to contest the redetermination.

Mr. DeFrancesco, who represents the Aluminum Extrusions Fair Trade Committee, told Law360 that the committee “is gratified by the court’s affirmation of the Department of Commerce’s final determination. We believe Commerce’s analysis of the scope of the orders demonstrates that subassemblies containing extruded aluminum parts are and always have been subject to the scope of the orders. This is an important decision for the domestic industry and ensures that the U.S. aluminum extrusion industry will continue to benefit from the relief provided by the orders.”
