Rules of Adjudication and Enforcement
The United States International Trade Commission (``Commission'') amends its Rules of Practice and Procedure concerning adjudication and enforcement. The amendments address concerns that have arisen about the scope of discovery in Commission proceedings under section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930. The intended effect of the amendments is to reduce expensive, inefficient, unjustified, or unnecessary discovery practices in agency proceedings while preserving the opportunity for fair and efficient discovery for all parties.
