The U.S. Department of Commerce has published a notice regarding aluminum licensing requirements. Aluminum import licenses will be required for entries of covered aluminum products beginning June 28, 2021. This notice also confirms that the stay of the regulations entitled “Aluminum Import Monitoring and Analysis System” will be lifted on June 28.
The licensing process is similar to steel imports, aluminum monitoring system will require importers of aluminum or their Customs brokers to submit information in an online portal to obtain an automatically issued license, then submit the license number on the entry summary or foreign trade zone admission.
