investigations under section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 
1337) in order to increase the efficiency of its section 337 
investigations. This rulemaking effort began in 2003 when the ITCTLA 
submitted a report to the Commission which suggested several rule 
changes that it believed would make the Commission rules more
