Aluminum Import Monitoring and Analysis

On December 23, 2020, the US Department of Commerce published a final rule in the Federal Register adopting AIM – Aluminum Import Monitoring and Analysis. As a result, licenses will be required for imports of certain covered aluminum products starting January 25, 2021, at 12:00 a.m. EST.

A complete list of impacted articles can be found using the below link.

The trade will use the same platform for aluminum licensing as is used for the steel licenses.

More information regarding the licensing process can be found at the AIM website:

System demonstrations will also be held in January 2021.  Please email aluminum.license@trade.gov indicating which session you would like to attend. The choices are:

  1. Thursday, January 7th, 2021 @ 1:00 PM EST
