Importers, you will want to be aware of the new aluminum license requirements going into effect on January 25th, 2021.
The U.S. Department of Commerce has adopted the Aluminum Import Monitoring and Analysis (AIM) system. The AIM system will have an online aluminum import license platform that will require importers, customs brokers, or their agents to apply for and obtain an import license for each entry of certain aluminum products into the United States through the website.
The list of aluminum products, as well as their HTS codes, these regulations affect can be found on the International Trade Administration website.
You can also find detailed information about the final rule on the Federal Register website.
