The complaint alleges violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, 19 U.S.C. 1337, in the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain load supporting systems, including composite mat systems, and components thereof by reason of infringement of certain claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 6,511,257 and 6,695,527.

The Office of Unfair Import Investigations was not named as a party to the investigation. On February 14, 2018, Newpark filed a motion to amend the complaint and notice of investigation to add Isokon d.o.o. of Slovenske Konjice, Slovenia (‘‘Isokon’’) as a respondent.

The ALJ found that the amendment will not prejudice the public interest or the parties.

No petitions for review of the ID were filed. The Commission has determined not to review the subject ID.

sale within the United States after importation of certain load
