Download as PDF jspears on DSK121TN23PROD with NOTICES1 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 193 / Friday, October 8, 2021 / Notices determined that a violation has occurred as to Mr. Li. Bellsing had previously been found in default, and the Commission finds a violation has occurred as to Bellsing. Specifically, the Commission finds that (1) Mr. Li has met the importation requirement on modified grounds, and affirms the ID’s remaining findings on importation; (2) Mr. Li has used and/or disclosed each of RTS Nos. 1–10; (3) RTS No. 6 has been misappropriated; and (4) affirms the IDs findings on domestic industry. All findings in the ID that are not inconsistent with the Commission’s determination are affirmed. Accordingly, the Commission finds that there is a violation of section 337. The Commission has determined that the appropriate remedy is a GEO and CDOs directed to each of the Bellsing respondents and Mr. Li. These orders bar Bellsing and Mr. Li’s unfair acts for a duration of twenty-six (26) years. The Commission has also determined that the public interest factors enumerated in subsections 337(d)(1) and (f)(1) (19 U.S.C. 1337(d)(1), (f)(1)) do not preclude the issuance of the GEO and CDOs. The GEO is directed to covered products that are made by, for, or on behalf of Bellsing and/or Mr. Li. The GEO reaches downstream products incorporating the covered products. The GEO includes a provision requiring any importer seeking to import the covered products (or products containing them or the components thereof) manufactured by or for Bellsing and/or Mr. Li or their affiliates or successors, to obtain a ruling from the Commission prior to the importation of the articles, finding that they are not subject to the GEO. The Commission has set the bond at one hundred percent (100%) of the value of the entered products imported by or on behalf of Bellsing and/or Mr. Li and sets a zero percent (0%) bond (i.e., no bond) for downstream products or components thereof. The investigation is terminated. The Commission’s orders and opinion were delivered to the President and to the United States Trade Representative on the day of their issuance. The Commission vote for this determination took place on October 4, 2021. 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).
