Update on the Aluminum Monitor

The AIM monitor now incorporates and reports aggregate level licensing data on imports of covered aluminum products. These data are provided for two months ahead of the official Census monthly release alongside the existing Census trade data. These data are displayed in each of the four monthly tabs in the monitor and within those tabs, in each graphic and table. New licensing data will be updated each Thursday as well as on days when there is a Census release.

If you have any questions, please contact us at
