U.S. Court of Appeals Rules Curtainwall Units & Parts Are Within Scope of Tariffs January 22, 2015

January 22, 2015

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit yesterday ruled in favor of Architectural Glass & Aluminum Systems, Walters & Wolf and Bagatelos Architectural Glass Systems, finding that curtainwall units and parts are within the scope of the tariffs on “unfairly traded” aluminum extrusions from China.

In its decision, the court ruled, “The scope language explicitly includes ‘parts for . . . curtain walls’ and curtain wall units are parts of a finished curtain wall. Therefore, Yuanda’s curtain wall units meet the definition of the subject aluminum extrusions.”
