Download as PDF rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES 13514 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 55 / Thursday, March 22, 2007 / Notices Wenzhou Star Smoking Set Co., Ltd. of China; Taizhou Rongshi Lighter Development Co., Ltd. of China; Wenzhou Tailier Smoking Set Co., Ltd. of China; Vista Wholesale of Greencastle, Indiana; beWild.com of Bellmore, New York; and Kalan LP of Landsdowne, Pennsylvania. Respondents Kalan and Wenzhou Star Smoking Set Company were terminated from the investigation on the basis of settlement agreements. The remaining five respondents were found to be in default by the ALJ and the Commission did not review that determination. On November 7, 2006, complainants filed a motion seeking summary determination with respect to the domestic industry requirement and violation of section 337. Complainants also requested that the ALJ recommend a general exclusion order and a 100 percent bond during the Presidential review period. The Commission investigative attorney supported the motion for summary determination and the requested recommendation on remedy and bonding. No respondents responded to the motion. On February 21, 2007, the ALJ issued an ID finding the domestic industry requirement satisfied, finding a violation of section 337, and containing a recommended determination on remedy and bonding. The ALJ found a violation of section 337 based on his conclusion that there are no genuine issues of material fact that respondents’ accused products infringe the ‘241 mark and that a domestic industry exists as required by 19 U.S.C. 1337(a)(2). He recommended issuance of a general exclusion order and that the amount of bond for temporary importation during the Presidential review period be set at 100 percent of the entered value of the articles concerned. No petitions for review were filed and the Commission has determined not to review the ID. In connection with the final disposition of this investigation, the Commission may issue an order that results in the exclusion of the subject articles from entry into the United States. Accordingly, the Commission is interested in receiving written submissions that address the form of remedy, if any, that should be ordered. If a party seeks exclusion of an article from entry into the United States for purposes other than entry for consumption, the party should so indicate and provide information establishing that activities involving other types of entry either are adversely affecting it or likely to do so. For background, see In the Matter of Certain Devices for Connecting Computers via Telephone Lines, Inv. No. 337–TA–360, VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:11 Mar 21, 2007 Jkt 211001 USITC Pub. No. 2843 (December 1994) (Commission Opinion). When the Commission contemplates some form of remedy, it must consider the effects of that remedy upon the public interest. The factors the Commission will consider include the effect that an exclusion order and/or cease and desist orders would have on (1) the public health and welfare, (2) competitive conditions in the U.S. economy, (3) U.S. production of articles that are like or directly competitive with those that are subject to investigation, and (4) U.S. consumers. The Commission is therefore interested in receiving written submissions that address the aforementioned public interest factors in the context of this investigation. When the Commission orders some form of remedy, the U.S. Trade Representative, as delegated by the President, has 60 days to approve or disapprove the Commission’s action. See Presidential Memorandum of July 21, 2005, 70 FR 43251 (July 26, 2005). During this period, the subject articles would be entitled to enter the United States under bond, in an amount determined by the Commission and prescribed by the Secretary of the Treasury. The Commission is therefore interested in receiving submissions concerning the amount of the bond that should be imposed if a remedy is ordered. Written Submissions: Parties to the investigation, interested government agencies, and any other interested parties are encouraged to file written submissions on the issues of remedy, the public interest, and bonding. Such submissions should be no more than twenty-five (25) pages and should address the recommended determination by the ALJ on remedy and bonding. The complainants and the Commission investigative attorney are also requested to submit proposed remedial orders for the Commission’s consideration. Complainants are also requested to state the HTSUS numbers under which the accused products are imported. The written submissions and proposed remedial orders must be filed no later than close of business on March 29, 2007. Reply submissions must be filed no later than the close of business on April 5, 2007. No further submissions on these issues will be permitted unless otherwise ordered by the Commission. Persons filing written submissions must file the original document and 12 true copies thereof on or before the deadlines stated above with the Office of the Secretary. Any person desiring to submit a document to the Commission in confidence must PO 00000 Frm 00047 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 request confidential treatment unless the information has already been granted such treatment during the proceedings. All such requests should be directed to the Secretary of the Commission and must include a full statement of the reasons why the Commission should grant such treatment. See 19 CFR 201.6. Documents for which confidential treatment by the Commission is sought will be treated accordingly. All nonconfidential written submissions will be available for public inspection at the Office of the Secretary. The authority for the Commission’s determination is contained in section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, 19 U.S.C. 1337, and in sections 210.42–46 of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure, 19 CFR 210.42–46.
