SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background.—On October 4, 2019, the Commission determined that the domestic interested party group response to its notice of institution (84 FR 31346, July 1, 2019) of the subject five-year review was adequate and that the respondent interested party group response was inadequate. The Commission did not find any other circumstances that would warrant conducting a full review.1 Accordingly, the Commission determined that it would conduct an expedited review pursuant to section 751(c)(3) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1675(c)(3)).2 For further information concerning the conduct of this review and rules of general application, consult the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure, part 201, subparts A and B (19 CFR part 201), and part 207, subparts A, D, E, and F (19 CFR part 207). Staff report.—A staff report containing information concerning the subject matter of the review will be placed in the nonpublic record on October 15, 2019, and made available to persons on the Administrative Protective Order service list for this review.

Comments are due on or before October 18, 2019 and may not contain new factual information. Any person that is neither a party to the five-year review nor an interested party may submit a brief written statement (which shall not contain any new factual information) pertinent to the review by October 18, 2019. However, should the Department of Commerce (‘‘Commerce’’) extend the time limit for its completion of the final results of its review, the deadline for comments (which may not contain new factual information) on Commerce’s final results is three business days after the issuance of Commerce’s results. If comments contain business proprietary information (BPI), they must conform with the requirements of sections 201.6, 207.3, and 207.7 of the Commission’s rules. The Commission’s rules with respect to filing were revised effective July 25, 2014. See 79 FR 35920 (June 25, 2014). The Commission’s Handbook on Filing Procedures, available on the Commission’s website at https:// www.usitc.gov/documents/handbook_ on_filing_procedures.pdf, elaborates upon the Commission’s procedures with respect to filings. In accordance with sections 201.16(c) and 207.3 of the rules, each document filed by a party to the review must be served on all other parties to the review (as identified by either the public or BPI service list), and a certificate of service must be timely filed.

Hearing-impaired persons are advised that information on this matter can be obtained by contacting the Commission’s TDD terminal on (202) 205–1810. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On June 25, 2019, the Commission instituted Inv. No. 337–TA–1163, Certain LightEmitting Diode Products, Systems, and Components Thereof under section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, 19 U.S.C. 1337 (‘‘section 337’’), based on a complaint filed by Lighting Science Group Corporation of Cocoa Beach, Florida; Healthe, Inc. of Cocoa Beach, Florida; and Global Value Lighting, LLC of West Warwick, Rhode Island (collectively, ‘‘Complainants’’). 84 Fed. Reg. 29877–79 (June 25, 2019). The complaint, as amended, alleges a violation of section 337 by reason of infringement of certain claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 7,098,483; 7,095,053; 8,506,118 (‘‘the ’118 patent’’); 7,528,421; E:\FR\FM\15OCN1.SGM 15OCN1 khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES 55174 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 199 / Tuesday, October 15, 2019 / Notices 8,674,608; 8,201,968; and 8,967,844. The notice of investigation (‘‘NOI’’) names numerous respondents. The Commission’s Office of Unfair Import Investigations was not named as a party. Id. at 29878. On September 6, 2019, Complainants filed a motion (Motion Docket No. 1163–004 (‘‘Mot. 004’’)) seeking leave to amend the complaint and NOI to add allegations of infringement of claim 9 of the ’118 patent against respondents MLS Co., Ltd. of Zhongshan City, China; LEDVANCE GmbH of Garching, Germany; and LEDVANCE LLC of Wilmington, Massachusetts (collectively, ‘‘MLS/LEDVANCE’’). On September 11, 2019, Complainants filed a motion (Motion Docket No. 1163–005 (‘‘Mot. 005’’)) seeking leave to amend the complaint and NOI to add allegations of infringement of claim 9 of the ’118 patent against respondents Acuity Brands, Inc. of Wilmington, Massachusetts and Acuity Brands Lighting, Inc. of Conyers, Georgia (collectively, ‘‘Acuity’’). On September 16, 2019, the ALJ issued the subject ID (Order No. 9) granting the motions. The ID finds that good cause exists to allow the proposed amendments because Complainants did not obtain facts showing the alleged infringement of claim 9 until after receiving discovery from MLS/ LEDVANCE and Acuity. ID at 2 (citing Mot. 004 at 4–6; Mot. 005 at 4–6). The ID further finds that any potential prejudice to MLS/LEDVANCE and Acuity is minimal because claim 9 comprises elements similar to elements present in claims already asserted against these parties. Id. at 2–3 (citing Mot. 004 at 3–4; Mot. 005 at 3–4). The ID also finds that adding claim 9 to this investigation would not expand the scope of discovery or enlarge the pool of accused products. Id. at 3 (citing Mot. 004 at 4; Mot. 005 at 4). No party petitioned for review of the ID. 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.
