Investigation and default judgments were granted against all the

    On March 7, 2011, complainant HP filed a paper entitled ``Motion 
for Summary Determination That a Domestic Industry Exists and That 
There Have Been Violations of Section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 
(Amended) By the Defaulting Respondents and Complainants' Request for a

domestic industry exists and that there has been a violation of Section 
337 and requested a recommendation for a general exclusion order 
(``GEO''). On August 3, 2011, the ALJ issued an initial determination 
(``ID'') (Order No. 14) granting complainant's motion for summary 
determination. The ID contained the ALJ's recommended determination on 
remedy and bonding including a recommendation for issuance of a GEO 
against the Defaulting Respondents. The ALJ also recommended that the 
Commission set a bond of 100 percent during the period of Presidential 
review.
    On September 1, 2011, the Commission determined not to review the 
ID and requested briefing on remedy, the public interest, and bonding. 
Only HP and the Commission investigative attorney timely filed their 
respective submissions, containing proposed GEOs.

factors enumerated in Section 337(d) (19 U.S.C. 1337(d)) do not 
preclude issuance of the GEO. The Commission has determined that the 
bond for temporary importation during the period of Presidential review 
(19 U.S.C. 1337(j)) shall be in the amount of 100 percent of the value 
of the imported articles that are subject to the order. The 
Commission's order was delivered to the President and the United States 
Trade Representative on the day of its issuance.
