The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) today 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.
Chairman David S. Johanson and Commissioners Irving A. Williamson, Rhonda K. Schmidtlein, and Jason E. Kearns voted in the affirmative. Commissioner Meredith M. Broadbent voted in the negative.
As a result of the Commission’s affirmative determinations, the U.S. Department of Commerce will continue with its antidumping and countervailing duty investigations concerning imports of this product from Israel, with its preliminary countervailing duty determinations due on or about January 17, 2019, and its preliminary antidumping duty determinations due on or about April 2, 2019.
The Commission’s public report Magnesium from Israel (Inv. Nos. 701-TA-614 and 731-TA-1431 (Preliminary), USITC Publication 4860, December 2018) will contain the views of the Commission and information developed during the investigations.
The report will be available after January 17, 2019; when available, it may be accessed on the USITC website at: http://pubapps.usitc.gov/applications/publogs/qry_publication_loglist.asp.
