The Notice of Investigation named as respondents, inter alia, Huizhou Dashu Trading Co., Ltd. of Huizou City, China (‘‘Huizhou Dashu Trading’’); Huagong Trading Co., Ltd. of Wangshizhuang, China (‘‘Huagong Trading’’); Tan Er Pa Technology Co., Ltd. of Hong Kong, China (‘‘Tan Er Pa’’); Shenzhen Great Electronic Technology Co., Ltd. of Shenzhen, China (‘‘Great Electronic’’); and SZ Flowerfairy Ltd. of Shenzhen, PO 00000 Frm 00061 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 China (‘‘Flowerfairy’’), which are the only five respondents remaining in this investigation. The Office of Unfair Import Investigations (‘‘OUII’’) was also named as a party. The Commission served the complaint and notice of investigation on Huizhou Dashu Trading and Huagong Trading. Neither party responded to the complaint, the notice of investigation, or discovery requests. On July 20, 2018, Yeti moved for an order for Huizhou Dashu Trading and Huagong Trading to show cause why they should not be found in default. On August 1, 2018, the ALJ ordered Huizhou Dashu Trading and Huagong Trading to show cause why they should not be held in default within 14 days. Order No. 28. Neither Huizhou Dashu Trading nor Huagong Trading responded to the ALJ’s order. On September 14, 2018, Yeti moved for an order finding Huizhou Dashu Trading and Huagong Trading in default for their failure to respond. Yeti also moved to terminate the investigation with respect to Tan Er Pa, Great Electronic, and Flowerfairy based on a withdrawal of the complaint because those respondents were not served with the complaint and notice of investigation. Yeti stated in its motion that it is not seeking a general exclusion order. On September 26, 2018, OUII supported the motion. On September 27, 2018, the ALJ issued the subject ID, finding Huizhou Dashu Trading and Huagong Trading in default, and terminating Tan Er Pa, Great Electronic, and Flowerfairy from the investigation based on a voluntary withdrawal of the complaint. No petitions for review were filed. 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.
