We adjusted domestic inventory carrying costs to include both days at sea and days in inventory at the factory. 7. We adjusted the reported homemarket interest rate to reflect only loans denominated in rubles. 8. We recalculated inventory carrying costs to reflect the revised interest rates. 9. We used home-market indirect selling expenses as reported in the cost database, not those figures reported in the sales database. 10. We recalculated U.S. indirect selling expenses using the latest total U.S. sales figure. 11. We adjusted the reported value of carnallite purchased from an affiliated supplier in accordance with the major input rule of section 773(f)(3) of the Act. 12. We adjusted the reported G&A expense rate to include certain income and expense items related to the general operations of the company. 13. We removed selling expenses which were incorrectly reported in the cost of production (‘‘COP’’) file. 14. We adjusted the reported factory overhead costs to reflect the amount of factory overhead recorded in the financial statements. 15. SMW provided multiple costs for the same control number. We calculated a single weighted-average cost for that control number. 16. We adjusted the reported financial expense rate to include net foreign currency exchange gains and losses and short-term interest income recorded as non-operating items on SMW’s financial statements. 17. We adjusted Solikamsk Desulphurizer Works’ (‘‘SZD’’) reported G&A expense rate to include certain non-operating income and expense items related to the general operations of the company. 18.

Final Determination Margins We determine that the following weighted-average dumping margins exist for the period January 1, 2003, through December 31, 2003: Weightedaverage margin (percent) Manufacturer/exporter JSC AVISMA Titanium-Magnesium Works ........................... Solikamsk Magnesium .............. Works. All Others .................................. VerDate jul<14>2003 18:49 Feb 23, 2005 Jkt 205001 22.28 18.65 Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation Pursuant to section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to continue to suspend liquidation of all entries of magnesium from Russia that are entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after October 4, 2004, the date of publication of the Preliminary Determination in the Federal Register. We will instruct CBP to continue to require, for each entry, a cash deposit or the posting of a bond equal to the weighted-average dumping margins indicated above. These instructions suspending liquidation will remain in effect until further notice. International Trade Commission Notification In accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, we have notified the U.S. International Trade Commission (‘‘ITC’’) of our determination. As our final determination is affirmative, the ITC will determine, within 45 days, whether these imports are materially injuring, or threatening material injury to, an industry in the United States. If the ITC determines that material injury, or threat of injury does not exist, the proceeding will be terminated and all securities posted will be refunded or canceled. If the ITC determines that such injury does exist, the Department will issue an antidumping order directing CBP officials to assess antidumping duties on all imports of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the effective date of the suspension of liquidation. Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (‘‘APO’’) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3).
