On December 23, 2020, the U.S. Department of Commerce (Commerce) published a final rule in the Federal Register adopting the Aluminum Import Monitoring and Analysis (AIM) system regulations and establishing an AIM website. The AIM website consists of an online aluminum import license application platform and public AIM monitor. On January 27, 2021, Commerce published notice of a delay in the original January 25, 2021 effective date until June 28, 2021.
Commerce is submitting a notice announcing a delay in the June 28, 2021 effective date to the Office of the Federal Register. In the case of any discrepancies between this announcement and the Federal Register notice, the Federal Register notice prevails. This delay means that licenses will not be required for covered aluminum product imports beginning on June 28, 2021. Further information and a revised effective date will be provided in the Federal Register notice.
Additional information on the AIM system will also be provided on this website. If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
