INTERNATIONAL TRADE COMMISSION

19 CFR Part 210


Adjudication and Enforcement

AGENCY: U.S. International Trade Commission.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The U.S. International Trade Commission is adopting a rule 
amendment revising a certain provision of the agency's rule for 
investigations and related proceedings under section 337 of the Tariff 
Act of 1930. The Supplement to the Strategic Human Capital Plan 2009-
2013 issued by the Commission on January 18, 2011, provides that the 
Office of Unfair Import Investigations (``OUII'') will not participate 
in a subset of Section 337 cases and will participate selectively in 
another subset of cases. In order to better allocate its resources, 
OUII may have to assign attorneys to investigations on an issue by 
issue basis. The rule amendment will allow OUII the flexibility to 
reassign attorneys to cases as necessary without having to publish 
notices announcing the change in the Federal Register. The new rule 
will have no substantive effect on Commission practice in conducting 
Section 337 investigations.

DATES: Effective date: May 2, 2011.
    Applicability Date: The Commission will adopt procedures to 
implement the rule change on May 2, 2011.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Megan M. Valentine, Esq., telephone 
202-708-2301, Office of the General Counsel, U.S. International Trade 
Commission, 500 E Street, SW., Washington, DC 20436. General 
information concerning the Commission may be obtained by accessing its 
Internet server (http://www.usitc.gov). Hearing-impaired persons is 
advised that information on the final rulemaking can be obtained by 
contacting the Commission's TDD terminal on 202-205-1810.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission is adopting the following 
rule amendment as a final rule.

Regulatory Analysis

    The Commission has determined that the final rule does not meet the 
criteria described in Section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 
51735, Oct. 4, 1993) and thus does not constitute a significant 
regulatory action for purposes of the Executive Order.
    The Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) is 
inapplicable to this rulemaking because it is not one for which a 
notice of rulemaking is required under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) or any other 
statute. Although the Commission has chosen to publish a notice of 
final rulemaking, the regulation is an ``agency rule of procedure and 
practice,'' and thus is exempt from the notice requirement imposed by 5 
U.S.C. 553(b).
    This final rule does not contain federalism implications warranting 
the preparation of a federalism summary impact statement pursuant to 
Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, Aug. 4, 1999).
    No actions are necessary under the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 
1995 (2 U.S.C. 1501 et seq.) because the final rule will not result in 
the expenditure by State, local, and tribal governments, in the 
aggregate, or by the private sector, of $100,000,000 or more in any one 
year, and will not significantly or uniquely affect small governments.
    The final rule is not a major rule as defined by section 804 of the 
Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (5 U.S.C. 
801 et seq.). Moreover, it is exempt from the reporting requirements of 
the Contract With America Advancement Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104-121) 
because it concerns a rule of agency organization, procedure, or 
practice that does not substantially affect the rights or obligations 
of non-agency parties.
    The amendment is not subject to section 3504(h) of the Paperwork 
Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), since it does not contain any 
new information collection requirements.
