SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00090 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 On June 7, 2019, the Commission instituted the above-referenced investigation based on a complaint filed by Hyundai Motor America, Inc. of Fountain Valley, California and Hyundai Motor Company of Seoul, Republic of Korea (collectively, ‘‘Hyundai’’). 84 FR 26703– 04 (June 7, 2019). The complaint alleges a violation of 19 U.S.C. 1337, as amended (‘‘Section 337’’), in the importation, sale for importation, or sale in the United States after importation of certain gray market Hyundai parts in the categories of belts, body exterior and interior parts, brakes, wheel hubs, cooling system parts, drivetrain parts, electrical parts, emission parts, engine parts, exhaust parts, fuel/air pumps, oil/ air/cabin air filters and parts, heat and A/C parts, ignition parts, steering parts, suspension parts, transmission parts, wheels and parts, wiper and washer parts, and accessories that infringe one or more of Hyundai’s U.S. Trademark Registration Nos. 1,104,727; 3,991,863; 1,569,538; and 4,065,195. Id. at 26704. The complaint further alleges that a domestic industry exists in the United States. Id. The Commission’s notice of investigation named Direct Technologies International, Inc. (‘‘DTI’’) of North Miami Beach, Florida; AJ Auto Spare Parts FZE (‘‘AJ Auto’’) and John Auto Spare Parts Co. LLC (‘‘John Auto’’), both of Dubai, United Arab Emirates; and Cuong Anh Co. Ltd. (‘‘Cuong Anh’’) of Ninh Binh Province, Vietnam as respondents. The Office of Unfair Import Investigations was not named as a party to this investigation. On November 25, 2019, the Commission determined not to review an initial determination (Order No. 17) granting Hyundai’s unopposed motion to find respondents AJ Auto, John Auto, and Cuong Anh (collectively, the ‘‘Defaulting Respondents’’) in default. Order No. 17 (Nov. 5, 2019), not rev’d, Comm’n Notice (Nov. 25, 2019). On January 24, 2020, Hyundai filed a declaration seeking immediate entry of a limited exclusion order against the Defaulting Respondents and any of their affiliated companies, parents, subsidiaries, and related business entities, successors or assigns. On March 5, 2020, the presiding administrative law judge (‘‘ALJ’’) issued an initial determination (Order No. 36) granting a joint motion by Hyundai and DTI to terminate the investigation as to DTI on the basis of a consent order. The ALJ found that the consent order stipulation and proposed consent order complied with Commission Rule 210.21(c)(3) and (4) (19 CFR 210.21(c)(3) and (4)). The ALJ also found that SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: INTERNATIONAL TRADE COMMISSION E:\FR\FM\01APN1.SGM 01APN1 jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 63 / Wednesday, April 1, 2020 / Notices termination of this investigation does not impose any undue burdens on the public health and welfare, competitive conditions in the United States economy, production of like or directly competitive articles in the United States, or United States consumers. No petitions for review of the ID were received. The Commission has determined not to review the subject ID and has determined to issue a consent order. The Commission has further determined that Hyundai’s declaration is now moot given the termination of DTI, the final remaining respondent in this investigation. Finally, the Commission has determined to request briefing on the issues of remedy, bonding, and the public interest. Section 337(g)(1) (19 U.S.C. 1337(g)(1)) and Commission Rule 210.16(c) (19 CFR 210.16(c)) authorize the Commission, upon request, to issue a limited exclusion order or a cease and desist order or both against a respondent found in default, unless after consideration of the public interest factors in Section 337(g)(1), it finds that such relief should not issue. Accordingly, in connection with the final disposition of this investigation, the Commission is interested in receiving written submissions that address the form of remedy, if any, that should be ordered with respect to the Defaulting Respondents, identified above. If a party seeks exclusion of an article from entry into the United States for purposes other than entry for consumption, the party should so indicate and provide information establishing that activities involving other types of entry either are adversely affecting it or likely to do so. For background, see Certain Devices for Connecting Computers via Telephone Lines, Inv. No. 337–TA–360, USITC Pub. No. 2843, Comm’n Op. at 7–10 (December 1994). The statute requires the Commission to consider the effects of that remedy upon the public interest. The public interest factors the Commission will consider include the effect that an exclusion order and/or cease and desist orders would have on (1) the public health and welfare, (2) competitive conditions in the U.S. economy, (3) U.S. production of articles that are like or directly competitive with those that are subject to investigation, and (4) U.S. consumers. The Commission is therefore interested in receiving written submissions that address the aforementioned public interest factors in the context of this investigation. If the Commission orders some form of remedy, the U.S. Trade VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:31 Mar 31, 2020 Jkt 250001 Representative, as delegated by the President, has 60 days to approve, disapprove, or take no action on the Commission’s action. See Presidential Memorandum of July 21, 2005, 70 FR 43251 (July 26, 2005). During this period, the subject articles would be entitled to enter the United States under bond, in an amount determined by the Commission and prescribed by the Secretary of the Treasury. The Commission is therefore interested in receiving submissions concerning the amount of the bond that should be imposed if a remedy is ordered. Written Submissions: Complainants, interested government agencies, and any other interested persons are encouraged to file written submissions on the issues of remedy, the public interest, and bonding. In their initial submission, complainants are requested to identify the form of the remedy sought and to submit proposed remedial orders for the Commission’s consideration. Complainants are also requested to state the date that the asserted patents expire, the HTSUS subheadings under which the products at issue are imported, and to supply the identification information for all known importers of the products at issue in this investigation. Initial written submissions regarding remedy, bonding, and the public interest and proposed remedial orders must be filed no later than close of business on April 9, 2020. Reply submissions must be filed no later than the close of business on April 16, 2020. No further submissions on these issues will be permitted unless otherwise ordered by the Commission. Persons filing written submissions must file the original document electronically on or before the deadlines stated above. The Commission’s paper filing requirements are currently waived. Submissions should refer to the investigation number (‘‘Inv. No. 337– TA–1160’’) in a prominent place on the cover page and/or the first page. (See Handbook on Filing Procedures, https:// www.usitc.gov/documents/handbook_ on_filing_procedures.pdf). Persons with questions regarding filing should contact the Secretary at (202) 205–2000. Any person desiring to submit a document to the Commission in confidence must request confidential treatment unless the information has already been granted such treatment during the proceedings. All such requests should be directed to the Secretary of the Commission and must include a full statement of the reasons why the Commission should grant such treatment. See 19 CFR 210.6. Documents for which confidential treatment by the PO 00000 Frm 00091 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 18275 Commission is sought will be treated accordingly. A redacted nonconfidential version of the document must also be filed simultaneously with any confidential filing.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On June 7, 2019, the Commission instituted 
the above-referenced investigation based on a complaint filed by 
Hyundai Motor America, Inc. of Fountain Valley, California and Hyundai 
Motor Company of Seoul, Republic of Korea (collectively, ``Hyundai''). 
84 FR 26703-04 (June 7, 2019). The complaint alleges a violation of 19 
U.S.C. 1337, as amended (``Section 337''), in the importation, sale for 
importation, or sale in the United States after importation of certain 
gray market Hyundai parts in the categories of belts, body exterior and 
interior parts, brakes, wheel hubs, cooling system parts, drivetrain 
parts, electrical parts, emission parts, engine parts, exhaust parts, 
fuel/air pumps, oil/air/cabin air filters and parts, heat and A/C 
parts, ignition parts, steering parts, suspension parts, transmission 
parts, wheels and parts, wiper and washer parts, and accessories that 
infringe one or more of Hyundai's U.S. Trademark Registration Nos. 
1,104,727; 3,991,863; 1,569,538; and 4,065,195. Id. at 26704. The 
complaint further alleges that a domestic industry exists in the United 
States. Id.
    The Commission's notice of investigation named Direct Technologies 
International, Inc. (``DTI'') of North Miami Beach, Florida; AJ Auto 
Spare Parts FZE (``AJ Auto'') and John Auto Spare Parts Co. LLC (``John 
Auto''), both of Dubai, United Arab Emirates; and Cuong Anh Co. Ltd. 
(``Cuong Anh'') of Ninh Binh Province, Vietnam as respondents. The 
Office of Unfair Import Investigations was not named as a party to this 
investigation.
    On November 25, 2019, the Commission determined not to review an 
initial determination (Order No. 17) granting Hyundai's unopposed 
motion to find respondents AJ Auto, John Auto, and Cuong Anh 
(collectively, the ``Defaulting Respondents'') in default. Order No. 17 
(Nov. 5, 2019), not rev'd, Comm'n Notice (Nov. 25, 2019).
    On January 24, 2020, Hyundai filed a declaration seeking immediate 
entry of a limited exclusion order against the Defaulting Respondents 
and any of their affiliated companies, parents, subsidiaries, and 
related business entities, successors or assigns.
    On March 5, 2020, the presiding administrative law judge (``ALJ'') 
issued an initial determination (Order No. 36) granting a joint motion 
by Hyundai and DTI to terminate the investigation as to DTI on the 
basis of a consent order. The ALJ found that the consent order 
stipulation and proposed consent order complied with Commission Rule 
210.21(c)(3) and (4) (19 CFR 210.21(c)(3) and (4)). The ALJ also found 
that

[[Page 18275]]

termination of this investigation does not impose any undue burdens on 
the public health and welfare, competitive conditions in the United 
States economy, production of like or directly competitive articles in 
the United States, or United States consumers. No petitions for review 
of the ID were received.
    The Commission has determined not to review the subject ID and has 
determined to issue a consent order. The Commission has further 
determined that Hyundai's declaration is now moot given the termination 
of DTI, the final remaining respondent in this investigation. Finally, 
the Commission has determined to request briefing on the issues of 
remedy, bonding, and the public interest.
    Section 337(g)(1) (19 U.S.C. 1337(g)(1)) and Commission Rule 
210.16(c) (19 CFR 210.16(c)) authorize the Commission, upon request, to 
issue a limited exclusion order or a cease and desist order or both 
against a respondent found in default, unless after consideration of 
the public interest factors in Section 337(g)(1), it finds that such 
relief should not issue. Accordingly, in connection with the final 
disposition of this investigation, the Commission is interested in 
receiving written submissions that address the form of remedy, if any, 
that should be ordered with respect to the Defaulting Respondents, 
identified above. If a party seeks exclusion of an article from entry 
into the United States for purposes other than entry for consumption, 
the party should so indicate and provide information establishing that 
activities involving other types of entry either are adversely 
affecting it or likely to do so. For background, see Certain Devices 
for Connecting Computers via Telephone Lines, Inv. No. 337-TA-360, 
USITC Pub. No. 2843, Comm'n Op. at 7-10 (December 1994).
    The statute requires the Commission to consider the effects of that 
remedy upon the public interest. The public interest factors the 
Commission will consider include the effect that an exclusion order 
and/or cease and desist orders would have on (1) the public health and 
welfare, (2) competitive conditions in the U.S. economy, (3) U.S. 
production of articles that are like or directly competitive with those 
that are subject to investigation, and (4) U.S. consumers. The 
Commission is therefore interested in receiving written submissions 
that address the aforementioned public interest factors in the context 
of this investigation.
    If the Commission orders some form of remedy, the U.S. Trade 
Representative, as delegated by the President, has 60 days to approve, 
disapprove, or take no action on the Commission's action. See 
Presidential Memorandum of July 21, 2005, 70 FR 43251 (July 26, 2005). 
During this period, the subject articles would be entitled to enter the 
United States under bond, in an amount determined by the Commission and 
prescribed by the Secretary of the Treasury. The Commission is 
therefore interested in receiving submissions concerning the amount of 
the bond that should be imposed if a remedy is ordered.
    Written Submissions: Complainants, interested government agencies, 
and any other interested persons are encouraged to file written 
submissions on the issues of remedy, the public interest, and bonding.
    In their initial submission, complainants are requested to identify 
the form of the remedy sought and to submit proposed remedial orders 
for the Commission's consideration. Complainants are also requested to 
state the date that the asserted patents expire, the HTSUS subheadings 
under which the products at issue are imported, and to supply the 
identification information for all known importers of the products at 
issue in this investigation. Initial written submissions regarding 
remedy, bonding, and the public interest and proposed remedial orders 
must be filed no later than close of business on April 9, 2020. Reply 
submissions must be filed no later than the close of business on April 
16, 2020. No further submissions on these issues will be permitted 
unless otherwise ordered by the Commission.
    Persons filing written submissions must file the original document

page. (See Handbook on Filing Procedures, https://www.usitc.gov/documents/handbook_on_filing_procedures.pdf). Persons with questions 
regarding filing should contact the Secretary at (202) 205-2000.
    Any person desiring to submit a document to the Commission in 
confidence must request confidential treatment unless the information 
has already been granted such treatment during the proceedings. All 
such requests should be directed to the Secretary of the Commission and 
must include a full statement of the reasons why the Commission should

also be filed simultaneously with any confidential filing. 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

personnel (a) for developing or maintaining the records of this or a
