We note that the Company is a party-at-interest within the meaning of 19 CFR § 177.22(d)(1) and is entitled to request this final determination. FACTS: The product at issue is referred to as a FleetCam, which is a high-resolution digital video camera installed in a vehicle for streaming and recording images in real time. The FleetCam allows companies who purchase the product to watch the drivers that they employee in real-time, as well as view recorded speeding and other behavior moments. The FleetCam is also able to capture, record, and transmit images of a driver’s view of the road ahead. The FleetCam is comprised of a physical digital video camera or several cameras setup together. The product also contains related cabling and a receiver that is compatible for use specifically with the Company’s software and mobile applications. To use the FleetCam product, a user must purchase the hardware and a subscription to the software from the Company. The FleetCam’s physical digital video camera is made in China and sourced by the Company from a Chinese firm. The firmware that is loaded onto the camera to allow it to be operational with the Company’s software was also developed by the Chinese firm; however, you state that the firmware was developed based upon the design, specifications, and software architecture produced by the Company’s staff located in the United States. The firmware developed for the FleetCam is designed specifically for use with the Company’s fleet management software. The digital camera hardware (together with the firmware) is purchased by the Company from a Chinese producer. The firmware is not loaded onto the camera hardware until it is received by the Company in the United States. Upon receipt of the camera and the firmware code, the Company’s engineers load and install the firmware on the camera hardware at the Company’s offices in the United States.
