All information, including confidential business information and documents for which confidential treatment is properly sought, submitted to the Commission for purposes of this Investigation may be disclosed to and used: (i) By the Commission, its employees and Offices, and contract personnel (a) for developing or maintaining the records of this or a related proceeding, or (b) in internal investigations, audits, reviews, and evaluations relating to the programs, personnel, and operations of the Commission including under 5 U.S.C.

All non-confidential written submissions will be available for public inspection at the Office of the Secretary and on EDIS. 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). To the extent that Commission Rule 210.76, 19 CFR 210.76, contemplates, as is ordinarily the case, the existence of a petition for a modification proceeding, the Commission has determined that Wirtgen’s renewed motion for stay is tantamount to such a petition. Alternatively, the Commission has determined that institution of a modification proceeding is also warranted based on the Commission’s authority, sua sponte, to institute a modification proceeding. Commission Rule 210.76(a)(1), 19 CFR 210.76(a)(1) (‘‘The Commission may also in its own initiative consider such action’’ to modify its remedial orders.). The Commission also finds that good cause exists, for the reasons set forth above— including Wirtgen’s previous failures to exhaust administrative processes—to waive or suspend Rule 210.76’s contemplation of a petition. Commission Rule 201.4(b), 19 CFR 201.4. By order of the Commission. Issued: January 16, 2020. Lisa Barton, Secretary to the Commission.
