A list of the issues raised by parties and responded to by Commerce in the Issues and Decision Memorandum is attached at Appendix II. Changes Since the Preliminary Determination Based on our analysis of the comments received and our findings at verification, we made certain changes to the margin calculations for DSM since the Preliminary Determination. For a discussion of these changes, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum. All-Others Rate Section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act provides that the estimated weightedaverage dumping margin for all other producers and exporters not individually investigated shall be equal to the weighted average of the estimated weighted-average dumping margins established for individually investigated exporters and producers, excluding any margins that are zero or de minimis or any margins determined entirely under section 776 of the Act. DSM is the sole mandatory respondent in this investigation. Commerce calculated an estimated weighted-average dumping margin for DSM that is not zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts otherwise available. Therefore, for purposes of determining the all-others rate, and pursuant to section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act, we are using the estimated weighted-average dumping margin calculated for DSM, as referenced in the ‘‘Final Determination’’ section below.

International Trade Commission Notification In accordance with section 735(d) of 218.98 the Act, Commerce will notify the 218.98 International Trade Commission (ITC) of its final determination. Because the final determination is affirmative, in In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection VerDate Sep<11>2014 (CBP) to continue the suspension of liquidation of all appropriate entries of magnesium from Israel, as described in Appendix I to this notice, which were entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after July 9, 2019, the date of publication of the Preliminary Determination of this investigation in the Federal Register. Pursuant to section 735(c)(l) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(d), Commerce will instruct CBP to require cash deposits equal to the weighted-average dumping margins indicated in the table above as follows: (1) The cash deposit rate for the respondents listed above will be equal to the company-specific estimated weighted-average dumping margins determined in this final determination; (2) if the exporter is not a respondent identified above, but the producer is, then the cash deposit rate will be equal to the company-specific estimated weighted-average dumping margin established for that producer of the subject merchandise; and (3) the cash deposit rate for all other producers and exporters will be 218.98 percent, the all-others estimated weightedaverage dumping margin. Commerce normally adjusts cash deposits for estimated antidumping duties by the amount of export subsidies countervailed in a companion countervailing duty (CVD) proceeding, when CVD provisional measures are in effect. Accordingly, where Commerce preliminarily made an affirmative determination for countervailable export subsidies, Commerce has offset the estimated weighted-average dumping margin by the appropriate CVD rate. In the final determination of the concurrent CVD investigation of magnesium from Israel, Commerce did not find any export subsidies.5 Accordingly, we are not making an adjustment to the cash deposit rate. These suspension of liquidation and cash deposit instructions will remain in effect until further notice.

If the ITC determines that material injury or threat of material injury does not exist, the proceeding will be terminated and all cash deposits will be refunded. If the ITC determines that such injury does exist, Commerce will issue an antidumping duty order directing CBP 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.

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case briefs and rebuttal briefs submitted 
by interested parties in this proceeding are discussed in the Issues 
and Decision Memorandum. A list of the issues raised by parties and 
responded to by Commerce in the Issues and Decision Memorandum is 
attached at Appendix II.

Changes Since the Preliminary Determination

    Based on our analysis of the comments received and our findings at 
verification, we made certain changes to the margin calculations for 
DSM since the Preliminary Determination. For a discussion of these 
changes, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

All-Others Rate

    Section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act provides that the estimated 
weighted-average dumping margin for all other producers and exporters 
not individually investigated shall be equal to the weighted average of 
the estimated weighted-average dumping margins established for 
individually investigated exporters and producers, excluding any 
margins that are zero or de minimis or any margins determined entirely 
under section 776 of the Act. DSM is the sole mandatory respondent in 
this investigation. Commerce calculated an estimated weighted-average 
dumping margin for DSM that is not zero, de minimis, or based entirely 
on facts otherwise available. Therefore, for purposes of determining 
the all-others rate, and pursuant to section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act, 
we are using the estimated weighted-average dumping margin calculated 
for DSM, as referenced in the ``Final Determination'' section below.

Final Determination

    Commerce determines that the following estimated weighted-average 
dumping margins exist for the period October 1, 2017 through September 
30, 2018:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                             Weighted-

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dead Sea Magnesium, Ltd.................................          218.98
All Others..............................................          218.98
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, we will 
instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to continue the 
suspension of liquidation of all appropriate entries of magnesium from 
Israel, as described in Appendix I to this notice, which were entered, 
or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after July 9, 2019, 
the date of publication of the Preliminary Determination of this 
investigation in the Federal Register.
    Pursuant to section 735(c)(l) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(d), 
Commerce will instruct CBP to require cash deposits equal to the 
weighted-average dumping margins indicated in the table above as 
follows: (1) The cash deposit rate for the respondents listed above 
will be equal to the company-specific estimated weighted-average 
dumping margins determined in this final determination; (2) if the 
exporter is not a respondent identified above, but the producer is, 
then the cash deposit rate will be equal to the company-specific 
estimated weighted-average dumping margin established for that producer 
of the subject merchandise; and (3) the cash deposit rate for all other 
producers and exporters will be 218.98 percent, the all-others 
estimated weighted-average dumping margin.
    Commerce normally adjusts cash deposits for estimated antidumping 
duties by the amount of export subsidies countervailed in a companion 
countervailing duty (CVD) proceeding, when CVD provisional measures are 
in effect. Accordingly, where Commerce preliminarily made an 
affirmative determination for countervailable export subsidies, 
Commerce has offset the estimated weighted-average dumping margin by 
the appropriate CVD rate. In the final determination of the concurrent 
CVD investigation of magnesium from Israel, Commerce did not find any 
export subsidies.\5\ Accordingly, we are not making an adjustment to 
the cash deposit rate. These suspension of liquidation and cash deposit 
instructions will remain in effect until further notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See Memorandum, ``Magnesium from Israel: Final Affirmative 
Countervailing Duty Determination,'' dated concurrently with this 
notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Disclosure

    We will disclose the calculations performed within five days of 
public announcement of this notice, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.224(b).

International Trade Commission Notification

    In accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, Commerce will notify 
the International Trade Commission (ITC) of its final determination. 
Because the final determination is affirmative, in accordance with 
section 735(b)(2) of the Act, the ITC will make its final determination 
as to whether the domestic industry in the United States is materially 
injured, or threatened with material injury, by reason of imports of 
magnesium from Israel no later than 45 days after our final 
determination. If the ITC determines that material injury or threat of 
material injury does not exist, the proceeding will be terminated and 
all cash deposits will be refunded. If the ITC determines that such 
injury does exist, Commerce will issue an antidumping duty order 
directing CBP 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 Orders

    This notice 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). Timely written 
notification of the return or destruction of APO materials, or 
conversion to judicial protective order, is hereby requested. Failure 
to comply with the regulations and the terms of an APO is a violation
