Dear Friend and Costumer,
Hoping you, your family, and colleagues are all doing well,

On August 6, 2020, the President issued a Presidential Proclamation on Adjusting Imports of Aluminum Into the United States, announcing that certain aluminum articles imported under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheading 7601.10 that are the products of Canada will be subject to the additional 10 percent ad valorem rate of duty.

The increased rates of duty on certain aluminum articles that are the products of Canada are effective with respect to goods entered, or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, on or after 12:01 a.m. eastern daylight time on August 16, 2020.

The functionality for the acceptance of the 232 additional duties on aluminum articles that are the products of Canada will be available in the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) as of 7 am eastern standard time, August 16, 2020.
