Hearing-impaired persons are advised that information on this matter can be obtained by contacting the Commission’s TDD terminal, telephone 202–205–1810. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission instituted this investigation on June 23, 2020, based on a complaint filed by Clearly Clean Products, LLC of South Windsor, Connecticut and Converter Manufacturing, LLC of Orwigsburg, Pennsylvania (‘‘Complainants’’). 85 FR 37689–90 (June 23, 2020). The complaint alleges a violation of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, 19 U.S.C. 1337 (‘‘section 337’’), by reason of infringement of certain claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 9,908,281 and 10,562,680. The notice of investigation named the following respondents: Eco Food Pak (USA), Inc. of Chino, California and Ningbo Linhua Plastic Co., Ltd. of SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00059 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Fenghua, China (‘‘Ningbo’’). The Commission’s Office of Unfair Import Investigations (‘‘OUII’’) also was named as a party. The complaint and notice of investigation were served on Ningbo on July 7, 2020. On August 20, 2020, Complainants filed a motion for an order to show cause why Ningbo should not be found in default for failing to respond to the complaint and notice of investigation. On September 8, 2020, the ALJ ordered Ningbo to show cause why it should not be found in default and Ningbo did not file a response. On October 6, 2020, the ALJ issued the subject ID (Order No. 7) finding Ningbo in default. The ID notes that Ningbo is the last remaining respondent and the ID terminates the investigation. No party petitioned for review of the ID. The Commission has determined not to review the ID. Ningbo is in default. Ningbo is the sole remaining respondent in this investigation. 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 statute authorizes issuance of, inter alia, (1) an exclusion order that could result in the exclusion of the subject articles from entry into the United States; and/ or (2) a cease and desist order that could result in the respondent 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. 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 (Dec. 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 E:\FR\FM\23OCN1.SGM 23OCN1
