The Aluminum Import Monitoring and Analysis (AIM) System, under the Department of Commerce, collects and publishes early warning data of aluminum product imports. By design, this information provides stakeholders valuable information on aluminum trade with the United States. In June 2021, Commerce launched the Aluminum Import Monitoring and Analysis (AIM) system, which is comprised of the aluminum import licensing application platform and an interactive public AIM monitor. More information regarding the new AIM licensing requirements and new AIM monitor features is available below:
AIM, through the import monitor, provides an early indication on aluminum imports by publishing near real-time aggregate data on aluminum imports into the United States. These data incorporate information collected from aluminum license applications and publicly released Census data. The data are displayed in tables and graphs for users to analyze various levels and changes in aluminum trade involving the United States.
