The Aluminum Extruders Council (AEC) and the Aluminum Extruders Fair Trade Committee (AEFTC) applaud the U.S. Custom and Border Protection’s preliminary decision to impose interim measures on importers Sun Bright International Corporation (“Sun Bright”) and Fair Importing Corporation (“Fair Importing”) for participating in a scheme to evade duties using fake country of origin certificates.

The decision pursuant to the Enforce and Protect Act (EAPA) can be read here.

Jeff Henderson, President of the AEC stated, “We are pleased to see this decision from Customs. The AEC and its members have worked tirelessly to expose these types of duty evasion schemes that undermine the relief provided by our antidumping and countervailing duty orders at the expense of American jobs. We are gratified by the administration’s efforts to vigorously enforce the orders and hold cheaters like Sun Bright and Fair Importing accountable."
