New Aluminum Importation Licensing Requirement in Effect This Month 1-5-2021 On December 23, 2020, the U.S. Department of Commerce published a final rule in the Federal Register adopting the Aluminum Import Monitoring and Analysis (AIM) system regulations and establishing an AIM website. As a result, licenses will be required for imports of covered aluminum products starting January 25, 2021 at 12:00 AM EST. A list of aluminum products subject to the new licensing requirement can be found here. The new AIM license application will share the same platform as the Steel Import Monitoring License application and will be accessed through that site. Please reach out to your DSV representative with any questions.
