SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission instituted this investigation on January 22, 2018, based on a daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:54 Mar 15, 2018 Jkt 244001 complaint filed by Newpark Mats & Integrated Services LLC of The Woodlands, Texas (‘‘Newpark’’). 83 FR 3022 (Jan. 22, 2018). 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 notice of investigation named as respondents Checkers Industrial Products, LLC of Broomfield, Colorado; Checkers Safety Group UK LTD of Cheshire, United Kingdom; and Zigma Ground Solutions LTD of Essex, United Kingdom (collectively, ‘‘Respondents’’). 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. Respondents do not oppose the motion. On February 20, 2018, the presiding administrative law judge (‘‘ALJ’’) issued an initial determination (‘‘ID’’) (Order No. 4), granting the motion to amend the complaint and notice of investigation. The ALJ found good cause for the amendment. The ALJ found that Newpark recently learned through discovery of Isokon’s role in the sale for importation of products accused in this investigation and that Newpark did not know of Isokon’s role when it filed the original complaint. The ALJ found that the amendment will not prejudice the public interest or the parties. The ALJ also found the amendment is in the public interest because it would permit development of a record that identifies the correct entities that import into the United States, sell for importation, and/ or sell within the United States after importation the products accused in the investigation. No petitions for review of the ID were filed. The Commission has determined not to review the subject ID. 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).
