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).

Commenters are encouraged, but not required, to send a courtesy copy of any comments SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00082 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for revisions to the Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) Information ICR. The VPP is a partnership between labor, management, and government designed to recognize and promote excellence in safety and health management. In order to participate in the VPP, an applicant submits an application and an annual self-evaluation containing a detailed description of its safety and health management programs to the OSHA, which uses the information to conduct a preliminary analysis of the worksite’s programs and to make a preliminary determination regarding the worksite’s qualifications for the VPP. This ICR has been classified as a revision, because existing VPP forms have been modified and the collection will include additional forms that enable the OSHA to improve the tracking and monitoring of VPP participants. 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 approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection under Control Number 1218–0239. The current approval is scheduled to expire on September 30, 2014; however, the DOL notes that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. New requirements would only take effect upon OMB approval. For additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on June 30, 2014 (79 FR 36834). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\30SEN1.SGM 30SEN1
