SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission instituted this investigation on November 13, 2013, based on a complaint filed by Navico, Inc. and Navico Holding AS (‘‘Navico’’). 78 FR 68091–92. The complaint alleges violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, 19 U.S.C. 1337 (‘‘section 337’’), in the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain marine sonar imaging devices, products containing the same, and components thereof, by reason of infringement of certain claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 8,300,499 and 8,305,840. The Commission’s notice of investigation named as respondents Raymarine, Inc. of Nashua, New Hampshire; Raymarine UK Ltd. of Fareham, United Kingdom; and In-Tech Electronics Ltd. of Hong Kong. On December 11, 2013, Navico filed an unopposed motion to amend the complaint and notice of investigation to add as respondents Raymarine Belgium BVBA, In-Tech Electronics (Shenzhen) Ltd., and In-Tech Science & Technology R&D Ltd. Navico states that there is good cause for such an amendment because Navico only recently learned of the relevance of these additional parties through the original respondents’ discovery responses. Navico further contends that no party will suffer prejudice because the investigation is still at an early stage. On December 16, 2013, the ALJ issued the subject ID, granting Navico’s unopposed motion to amend the complaint and notice of investigation. The ALJ found good cause for granting the motion because the amendment is based on information learned recently through discovery and will not prejudice the parties. No petitions for review were filed. The Commission has determined not to review the subject ID. 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 Part 210 of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR part 210).

Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3507(a)(1)(D). This ICR seeks to extend PRA authorization for the Benefit Appeals Report, Form ETA 5130. A State Workforce Agency (SWA) uses this report to forward the number of unemployment insurance (UI) appeals and resultant decisions classified by program, appeals level, and cases filed and disposed of (workflow) and decisions by level, appellant, and issue to the ETA. The ETA uses data in this report to monitor the benefit appeals process in each SWA and to develop any needed plans for remedial action. The data are also used to determine workload forecasts and administrative funding. As with most UI reports, the Benefits Appeals Report is part of an electronic reporting system through which a SWA enters and transmits data to the ETA. A State has the option of creating a file on the SWA’s own computer system and uploading the file to the UI system; thus, eliminating manual data entry and potential corresponding errors. Social Security Act section 303(a)(6), 42 U.S.C. 503(a)(6), authorizes this information collection. This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\21JAN1.SGM 21JAN1
