Summary: The scope of these investigations includes aluminium foil having a thickness of 0.2 mm or less, in reels exceeding 25 pounds, regardless of width. Aluminium foil is made from an aluminium alloy that contains more than 92 percent aluminium. It may be made to ASTM specification ASTM B479 but can also be made to other specifications. Regardless of specification, however, all aluminium foil meeting the scope description is included in the scope.

Excluded from the scope of these investigations is aluminium foil that is backed with paper, paperboard, plastics or similar backing materials on only one side of the aluminium foil, as well as etched capacitor foil and aluminium foil that is cut to shape. Where the nominal and actual measurements vary, a product is within the scope if application of either the nominal or actual measurement would place it within the scope based on the definitions set forth above.

The USITC is expected to reach a preliminary injury determination by 24 April (a vote has been scheduled for 21 April). If the USITC issues an affirmative determination, the DOC will carry out its AD and CV duty investigations; otherwise, the investigations will be terminated and no duties will be imposed.

Summary: The DOC has determined that the producers accounting for substantially all of the production of the domestic like product to which the orders pertain lack interest in the relief provided with respect to certain solar panels that are incorporated in certain battery charging and maintaining units. Specifically, this determination covers solar panels that are (1) less than 300,000 mm2 in surface area; (2) less than 27.1 watts in power; (3) coated across their entire surface with a polyurethane doming resin; and (4) joined to a battery charging and maintaining unit (which is an acrylonitrile butadiene styrene box that incorporates a light emitting diode) by coated wires that include a connector to permit the incorporation of an extension cable. The battery charging and maintaining unit utilises high-frequency triangular pulse waveforms designed to maintain and extend the life of batteries through the reduction of lead sulphate crystals. These battery charging and maintaining units are currently available under the registered trademark ‘‘SolarPulse.’’ Accordingly, the DOC has revoked the AD and CV orders with respect to these products.
