SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission instituted this investigation on June 24, 2016, based on an amended complaint, as supplemented, filed by Laerdal Medical Corp. of Wappingers Falls, New York, and Laerdal Medical AS of Stavanger, Norway (together, ‘‘Laerdal’’). 81 FR 41349–50. The investigation was instituted to determine whether there is a violation 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 carbon spine board, cervical collar, CPR masks, various medical training manikin devices, trademarks, copyrights of product catalogues and products inserts, and components thereof by reason of infringement of one or more of U.S. Patent No. 6,090,058, U.S. Trademark Registration No. 3,476,656, or U.S. Copyright Registration Nos.

Id. at 41350. The Office of Unfair Import Investigations (‘‘OUII’’) was also named as a party. Id. All respondents were served with a copy of the complaint and notice of investigation. See OUII Default Motion Response (Oct. 31, 2016) at 3 and Ex. A. On October 20, 2016, Laerdal filed a motion requesting that the ALJ order all respondents to show cause why they should not be held in default for failing to respond to the complaint and notice VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:45 Dec 23, 2016 Jkt 241001 of investigation. On October 31, 2016, OUII filed a response in support of Laerdal’s motion. On November 7, 2016, the ALJ ordered all of the respondents to show cause why they should not be held in default, and set a response deadline of November 14, 2016. Order No. 5. No responses were filed. On November 21, 2016, the ALJ issued the subject ID (Order No. 6) finding all respondents in default pursuant to Commission Rules 210.16 and 210.17. No petitions for review of the ID were filed. On December 1, 2016, Laerdal indicated that it was not seeking a general exclusion order. The Commission has determined not to review the subject ID. Section 337(g)(1) and Commission Rule 210.16(c) authorize the Commission to order relief against a respondent found in default, unless, after considering the public interest, it finds that such relief should not issue. In connection with the final disposition of this investigation, the Commission may: (1) Issue an order that could result in the exclusion of articles manufactured or imported by the defaulting respondents; and/or (2) issue cease and desist orders that could result in the defaulting respondents being required to cease and desist from engaging in unfair acts in the importation and sale of such articles. Accordingly, the Commission is interested in receiving written submissions that address the form of remedy, if any, that should be ordered. If a party seeks exclusion of an article from entry into the United States for purposes other than entry for consumption, the party should so indicate and provide information establishing that activities involving other types of entry either are adversely affecting it or likely to do so. For background, see Certain Devices for Connecting Computers via Telephone Lines, Inv. No. 337–TA–360, USITC Pub. No. 2843, Comm’n Op. at 7–10 (December 1994). If the Commission contemplates some form of remedy, it must consider the effects of that remedy upon the public interest. The factors that the Commission will consider include the effect that the exclusion order and/or cease and desists orders would have on (1) the public health and welfare, (2) competitive conditions in the U.S. economy, (3) U.S. production of articles that are like or directly competitive with those that are subject to investigation, and (4) U.S. consumers. The Commission is therefore interested in receiving written submissions that address the aforementioned public PO 00000 Frm 00096 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 95193 interest factors in the context of this investigation. If the Commission orders some form of remedy, the U.S. Trade Representative, as delegated by the President, has 60 days to approve or disapprove the Commission’s action. See Presidential Memorandum of July 21, 2005, 70 FR 43251 (July 26, 2005). During this period, the subject articles would be entitled to enter the United States under bond, in an amount determined by the Commission and prescribed by the Secretary of the Treasury. The Commission is therefore interested in receiving submissions concerning the amount of the bond that should be imposed if a remedy is ordered. Written Submissions: Parties to the investigation, interested government agencies, and any other interested parties are encouraged to file written submissions on the issues of remedy, the public interest, and bonding. Laerdal and OUII are requested to submit proposed remedial orders for the Commission’s consideration. Laerdal is also requested to state the HTSUS numbers under which the accused products are imported, and to state the dates that the patents expire. Laerdal is further requested to supply identification information on any known importers. Written submissions and proposed remedial orders must be filed no later than the close of business on January 5, 2017.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission instituted this investigation 
on June 24, 2016, based on an amended complaint, as supplemented, filed 
by Laerdal Medical Corp. of Wappingers Falls, New York, and Laerdal 
Medical AS of Stavanger, Norway (together, ``Laerdal''). 81 FR 41349-

U.S. Trademark Registration No. 3,476,656, or U.S. Copyright 
Registration Nos. VA 1-879-023 and VA 1-879-026, or by reason of trade 
dress misappropriation and infringement. Id. at 41349. The Commission's 
notice of investigation named as respondents Shanghai Evenk

Office of Unfair Import Investigations (``OUII'') was also named as a 
party. Id.
    All respondents were served with a copy of the complaint and notice 
of investigation. See OUII Default Motion Response (Oct. 31, 2016) at 3 
and Ex. A. On October 20, 2016, Laerdal filed a motion requesting that 
the ALJ order all respondents to show cause why they should not be held 
in default for failing to respond to the complaint and notice of 
investigation. On October 31, 2016, OUII filed a response in support of 
Laerdal's motion.
    On November 7, 2016, the ALJ ordered all of the respondents to show 
cause why they should not be held in default, and set a response 
deadline of November 14, 2016. Order No. 5. No responses were filed. On 
November 21, 2016, the ALJ issued the subject ID (Order No. 6) finding 
all respondents in default pursuant to Commission Rules 210.16 and 
210.17. No petitions for review of the ID were filed. On December 1, 
2016, Laerdal indicated that it was not seeking a general exclusion 
order.
    The Commission has determined not to review the subject ID.
    Section 337(g)(1) and Commission Rule 210.16(c) authorize the 
Commission to order relief against a respondent found in default, 
unless, after considering the public interest, it finds that such 
relief should not issue.
    In connection with the final disposition of this investigation, the 
Commission may: (1) Issue an order that could result in the exclusion 
of articles manufactured or imported by the defaulting respondents; 
and/or (2) issue cease and desist orders that could result in the 
defaulting respondents being required to cease and desist from engaging 
in unfair acts in the importation and sale of such articles. 
Accordingly, the Commission is interested in receiving written 
submissions that address the form of remedy, if any, that should be 
ordered. If a party seeks exclusion of an article from entry into the 
United States for purposes other than entry for consumption, the party 
should so indicate and provide information establishing that activities 
involving other types of entry either are adversely affecting it or 
likely to do so. For background, see Certain Devices for Connecting 
Computers via Telephone Lines, Inv. No. 337-TA-360, USITC Pub. No. 
2843, Comm'n Op. at 7-10 (December 1994).
    If the Commission contemplates some form of remedy, it must 
consider the effects of that remedy upon the public interest. The 
factors that the Commission will consider include the effect that the 
exclusion order and/or cease and desists orders would have on (1) the 
public health and welfare, (2) competitive conditions in the U.S. 
economy, (3) U.S. production of articles that are like or directly 
competitive with those that are subject to investigation, and (4) U.S. 
consumers. The Commission is therefore interested in receiving written 
submissions that address the aforementioned public interest factors in 
the context of this investigation.
    If the Commission orders some form of remedy, the U.S. Trade 
Representative, as delegated by the President, has 60 days to approve 
or disapprove the Commission's action. See Presidential Memorandum of 
July 21, 2005, 70 FR 43251 (July 26, 2005). During this period, the 
subject articles would be entitled to enter the United States under 
bond, in an amount determined by the Commission and prescribed by the 
Secretary of the Treasury. The Commission is therefore interested in 
receiving submissions concerning the amount of the bond that should be 
imposed if a remedy is ordered.
    Written Submissions: Parties to the investigation, interested 
government agencies, and any other interested parties are encouraged to 
file written submissions on the issues of remedy, the public interest, 
and bonding. Laerdal and OUII are requested to submit proposed remedial 
orders for the Commission's consideration. Laerdal is also requested to 
state the HTSUS numbers under which the accused products are imported, 
and to state the dates that the patents expire. Laerdal is further 
requested to supply identification information on any known importers.
    Written submissions and proposed remedial orders must be filed no 
later than the close of business on January 5, 2017. Reply submissions 
must be filed no later than the close of business on January 12, 2017. 
No further submissions on these issues will be permitted unless 
otherwise ordered by the Commission.
    Persons filing written submissions must file the original document 
electronically on or before the deadline stated above and submit eight 
true paper copies to the Office of the Secretary pursuant to section 
210.4(f) of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 
210.4(f)). Submissions should refer to the investigation number (``Inv. 
No. 337-TA-1008'') in a prominent place on the cover page and/or the 
first page. (See Handbook for Electronic Filing Procedures, http://www.usitc.gov/secretary/fed_reg_notices/rules/handbook_on_electronic_filing.pdf). Persons with questions regarding 
filing should contact the Secretary (202-205-2000).

confidence must request confidential treatment. All such requests 
should be directed to the Secretary to the Commission and must include 
a full
