On October 29, 2020, in Cargo Systems Messaging Service (CSMS) #44591106, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) issued updated Section 232 guidance on imports of aluminum articles from Canada. The guidance reflects the changes made to Presidential Proclamation 10060 by U.S. President Donald Trump on October 27, 2020, reinstating the Section 232 exclusion for certain non-alloyed unwrought aluminum articles from Canada.

This exclusion is effective from September 1, 2020. Goods entered prior to September 1, 2020 are still subject to the additional 10% duties under Section 232.
