The Office of Unfair Import Investigations (‘‘OUII’’) was also named as a party to the investigation. On August 11, 2014, Complainants and Respondents filed a joint motion to terminate the investigation based upon a settlement agreement, a consent order stipulation and a proposed consent order. The moving parties represented that there are no other agreements, written or oral, express or implied between them concerning the subject matter of this investigation other than the consent order stipulation, settlement agreement and consent order. The moving parties provided public versions of the settlement agreement. OUII filed a response stating that it did not oppose the motion. On August 25, 2014, the ALJ granted the motion for termination of the investigation. The ALJ found that the consent order stipulation complied with the Commission’s rules but made no such finding as to the proposed consent order. The ALJ also found that there was no evidence that terminating the investigation based on settlement and consent order would be contrary to the public interest. No petitions for review were filed. The Commission has determined to review the subject ID. Commission Rule 210.21(c)(4) states in part that ‘‘[t]he Commission will not issue consent orders with terms beyond those provided for in this section. . . .’’ The Commission finds that the parties’ VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:09 Sep 29, 2014 Jkt 232001 proposed consent order includes not only the provisions specified in Rule 210.21(c)(4), but also includes additional terms from the consent order stipulation. On review, the Commission revises the proposed consent order to bring it into compliance with the Commission’s rules, issues the revised consent order, and terminates the investigation. The settlement agreement and consent order resolve all claims asserted in the investigation. 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).
