Anti-dumping

On October 24, 2018 the U.S. International Trade Commission received a petition requesting the imposition of antidumping and countervailing duties on magnesium from Israel. The subject goods are classifiable under HTSUS 8104.11.00, 8104.19.00, and 8104.30.00.

On December 7, 2018 the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that there is a reasonable indication that a U.S. industry is materially injured by reason of imports of magnesium from Israel that are allegedly subsidized and sold in the United States at less than fair value. As a result of the this affirmative determination, the U.S. Department of Commerce will continue with its antidumping and countervailing duty investigations.

On July 3, 2019 the U.S. Department of Commerce announced the affirmative preliminary determination in the antidumping duty investigation of imports of magnesium from Israel, finding that exporters from Israel have dumped magnesium in the United States at a margin of 193.24 percent. As a result of today’s decision, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect cash deposits from importers of magnesium from Israel based on this preliminary rate.

On November 22, 2019, the Department of Commerce announced its affirmative final determinations. Commerce assigned a dumping rate of 218.98 percent to sole mandatory respondent Dead Sea Magnesium, Ltd. The dumping rate for all other Israeli producers and exporters is 218.98 percent. 

On December 18, 2019 the U.S.  International Trade Commission determined that a U.S. industry is not materially injured or threatened with material injury by reason of imports of magnesium from Israel. As a result of the determination, no antidumping or countervailing duty orders will be issued.
