U.S. Dept. of Commerce Investigating
Excessive Copper-Scrap Exports

Wednesday, May 5, 2004
 
The U.S. Department of Commerce has begun to formally investigate alleged excessive copper- and copper-alloy scrap exports to China, and their impact on shortages and price increases in the U.S. market. The investigation results from an April 7, 2004, petition filed by the Copper and Brass Fabricators Council and the Non-Ferrous Founders’ Society. Written-comment deadlines and a hearing occur during May and June; the Secretary of Commerce has until July 22 to determine of export monitoring or controls are in order.
