In connection with the final disposition of this investigation, the Commission may (1) issue an order that could result in the exclusion of the subject articles from entry into the United States, and/or (2) issue one or more cease and desist orders that could result in the respondent(s) 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 (Dec. 1994) (Comm’n Op.). In particular, the written submissions should address any request for a cease and desist order in the context of recent Commission opinions, including those in Certain Arrowheads with Deploying Blades and Components Thereof and Packaging Therefor, Inv.

Specifically, if Complainant seeks a cease and desist order against a defaulting respondent, the written submissions should respond to the following requests: (1) Please identify with citations to the record any information regarding commercially significant inventory in the United States as to each respondent against whom a cease and desist order is sought. If Complainant also relies on other significant domestic operations that could undercut the remedy provided by an exclusion order, please identify with citations to the record such information as to each respondent against whom a cease and desist order is sought. (2) In relation to the infringing products, please identify any information in the record, including allegations in the pleadings, that addresses the existence of any domestic inventory, any domestic operations, or any sales-related activity directed at the United States for each respondent against whom a cease and desist order is sought. If the Commission contemplates some form of remedy, it must consider the effects of that remedy upon the public interest. The factors the Commission VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:32 Nov 16, 2017 Jkt 244001 will consider include the effect that an exclusion order and/or cease and desist 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.

Defaulting Respondents''). Commission Notice (May 26, 2017). In 
addition, the '746 and '959 patents were previously terminated from the 
investigation. Commission Notice (July 28, 2017).
    On May 18, 2017, Nite Ize filed a Motion for Summary Determination 
of Violation by the Defaulting Respondents and for a Recommended 
Determination on Remedy and Bonding, Including Issuance of a General 
Exclusion Order, Limited Exclusion Orders, and Cease and Desist Orders. 
On June 16, 2017, the ALJ issued Order No. 14 granting in-part Nite 
Ize's motion for summary determination. The Commission determined not 
to review that ID. Commission Notice (July 14, 2017).
    On September 12, 2017, the ALJ issued his final ID finding a 
violation of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, 19 U.S.C. 1337. On 
the same day, the ALJ issued his Recommended Determination on Remedy 
and Bonding. No petitions for review were filed.
    The Commission has determined to review the subject ID in-part. 
Specifically, the Commission has determined to review the ID's analysis 
and findings with respect to the economic prong of the domestic 
industry requirement. The Commission

[[Page 54414]]

does not request any submissions on the issue under review.
    In connection with the final disposition of this investigation, the 
Commission may (1) issue an order that could result in the exclusion of 
the subject articles from entry into the United States, and/or (2) 
issue one or more cease and desist orders that could result in the 
respondent(s) 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 (Dec. 1994) 
(Comm'n Op.). In particular, the written submissions should address any 
request for a cease and desist order in the context of recent 
Commission opinions, including those in Certain Arrowheads with 
Deploying Blades and Components Thereof and Packaging Therefor, Inv. 
No. 337-TA-977, Comm'n Op. (Apr. 28, 2017) and Certain Electric Skin 
Care Devices, Brushes and Chargers Therefor, and Kits Containing the 
Same, Inv. No. 337-TA-959, Comm'n Op. (Feb. 13, 2017). Specifically, if 
Complainant seeks a cease and desist order against a defaulting 
respondent, the written submissions should respond to the following 
requests:

    (1) Please identify with citations to the record any information 
regarding commercially significant inventory in the United States as 
to each respondent against whom a cease and desist order is sought. 
If Complainant also relies on other significant domestic operations 
that could undercut the remedy provided by an exclusion order, 
please identify with citations to the record such information as to 
each respondent against whom a cease and desist order is sought.
    (2) In relation to the infringing products, please identify any 
information in the record, including allegations in the pleadings, 
that addresses the existence of any domestic inventory, any domestic 
operations, or any sales-related activity directed at the United 
States for each respondent against whom a cease and desist order is 
sought.

    If the Commission contemplates some form of remedy, it must 
consider the effects of that remedy upon the public interest. The 
factors the Commission will consider include the effect that an 
exclusion order and/or cease and desist 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: Each party's written submission must be filed 
no later than close of business on Thursday, November 30, 2017. Reply 
submissions must be filed no later than the close of business on 
Thursday, December 7, 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 deadlines stated above and submit 8 
true paper copies to the Office of the Secretary by noon the next day 
pursuant to Commission Rule 210.4(f), 19 CFR 210.4(f). Submissions

a prominent place on the cover page and/or the first page. (See 
Handbook for Electronic Filing Procedures, https://www.usitc.gov/secretary/documents/handbook_on_filing_procedures.pdf). Persons with 
questions regarding filing should contact the Secretary, (202) 205-

treatment. See 19 CFR 201.6. Documents for which confidential treatment
