The ITC said the Commerce Department will "issue countervailing duty orders on imports of this product from Oman and Turkey and antidumping duty orders on imports of this product from Armenia, Brazil, Oman, Russia, and Turkey."

The Aluminum Association, a trade group, said: "In 2019, the value of U.S. imports of aluminum foil from these countries was approximately $272 million."

The group also said its Foil Trade Enforcement Working Group filed petitions requesting relief in September of last year.
