CBP issued guidance on the UAE Sec. 232 aluminum quotas but then issued CSMS continuing previous procedures after reversal by current Administration
On January 27, 2021, CBP issued CSMS #45967303 – United Arab Emirates Section 232 Aluminum Absolute Quota limits beginning February 3, 2021, to implement Presidential Proclamation 10139. However, on February 1, 2021, President Biden revoked Proclamation 10139 before it was to take effect and restored the 10% duties for aluminum from the UAE. As a result, CBP issued CSMS #46027083 – United Arab Emirates Section 232 Aluminum Presidential Proclamation 10139 REVOKED February 1, 2021, which stated that UAE aluminum imports will continue to be processed as established under Section 232 duty filing.
