ITC Issues Affirmative Final Injury Determination on Magnesium From Russia and China

The United States International Trade Commission (ITC) today issued a final injury determination in the antidumping investigations of magnesium from China and Russia.

Chairman Stephen Koplan, Vice Chairman Deanna Tanner Okun, and Commissioners Charlotte R. Lane and Daniel R. Pearson found one like product consisting of pure and alloy magnesium and voted in the affirmative. Commissioners Marcia E. Miller and Jennifer A. Hillman voted with the majority, except that they found granular magnesium to be a separate like product and found subject imports of granular magnesium from Russia to be negligible. (Imports are generally deemed 'negligible' if they amounted to less than 3 percent of all such merchandise imported into the United States in the most recent 12-month period for which data are available preceding the filing of the petition.)

As a result of the ITC's affirmative determinations, the U.S. Department of Commerce will issue antidumping duty orders on imports of magnesium from China and Russia.

The products covered by this antidumping investigation are primary and secondary pure and alloy magnesium metal, regardless of chemistry, raw material source, form, shape, or size. Pure magnesium is widely used in commercial and industrial applications because it is easily machined and lightweight, has a high strength-to-weight ratio and has special chemical and electrical properties. Alloy magnesium is principally used in structural applications, primarily in castings and extrusions for the automotive industry.

This antidumping investigation was filed by the following petitioners: U.S. Magnesium Corp., United Steelworkers of America, Local 8319 and Glass, Molders, Pottery, Plastics & Allied Workers International, Local 374.
