INTERNATIONAL TRADE COMMISSION

[Investigation No. 337-TA-1000]


Certain Motorized Self-Balancing Vehicles; Supplemental Notice of 
Request for Statements on the Public Interest

AGENCY: International Trade Commission.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given that the presiding administrative law 
judge (``ALJ'') has issued a Final Initial Determination on Violation 
of Section 337 and Recommended Determination on Remedy and Bonding in 
the above-captioned investigation. The Commission is soliciting 
comments on public interest issues raised by the recommended relief 
should the Commission find a violation of section 337, as amended. The 
ALJ recommended a limited exclusion order directed against certain 
motorized self-balancing vehicles imported by the sixteen defaulting 
respondents, and cease and desist orders directed against these 
respondents. This supplemental notice is soliciting public interest 
comments from the public only. Parties are to file public interest 
submissions pursuant to applicable Federal regulations.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Clint A. Gerdine, Office of the 
General Counsel, U.S. International Trade Commission, 500 E Street SW., 
Washington, DC 20436, telephone (202) 708-2310. Copies of non-
confidential documents filed in connection with this investigation are

(8:45 a.m. to 5:15 p.m.) in the Office of the Secretary, U.S. 
International Trade Commission, 500 E Street SW., Washington, DC 20436, 
telephone (202) 205-2000. General information concerning the Commission 
may also be obtained by accessing its Internet server at https://www.usitc.gov. The public record for this investigation may be viewed

Hearing-impaired persons are advised that information on this matter 
can be obtained by contacting the Commission's TDD terminal on (202)

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 
U.S.C. 1337(d)(1)) provides that if the Commission finds a violation it 
shall exclude the articles concerned from the United States:

. . . [U]nless, after considering the effect of such exclusion upon 
the public health and welfare, competition conditions in the United 
States economy, the production of like or directly competitive 
articles in the United States consumers, it finds that such articles 
should not be excluded from entry.

A similar provision applies to cease and desist orders (see 19 U.S.C. 
1337(f)(1)).
    The Commission is interested in further development of the record 
on the public interest in its investigations. Accordingly, members of 
the public are invited to file submissions of no more than five (5) 
pages, inclusive of attachments, concerning the public interest in 
light of the administrative law judge's Recommended Determination on 
Remedy and Bonding issued in this investigation on May 26, 2017. 
Comments should address whether issuance of an exclusion order and/or 
cease and desist orders in this investigation could affect the public 
health and welfare in the United States, competitive conditions in the 
United States economy, the production of like or directly competitive 
articles in the United States, or United States consumers.
    In particular, the Commission is interested in comments that:
    (i) Explain how the articles potentially subject to the recommended 
orders are used in the United States;
    (ii) identify any public health, safety, or welfare concerns in the 
United States relating to the recommended orders;
    (iii) indicate the extent to which like or directly competitive 
articles are produced in the United States or are

[[Page 31351]]

otherwise available in the United States, with respect to the articles 
potentially subject to the recommended orders;
    (iv) indicate whether Complainant, Complainant's licensees, and/or 
third party suppliers have the capacity to replace the volume of 
articles potentially subject to the recommended orders within a 
commercially reasonable time; and
    (v) explain how the recommended orders would impact consumers in 
the United States.
    The deadline for filing written submissions has been extended to 
the close of business on July 14, 2017.
    Persons filing written submissions must file the original document 
electronically on or before the deadlines stated above and submit 8 
true paper copies to the Office of the Secretary by noon the next day 
pursuant to Commission Rule 210.4(f), 19 CFR 210.4(f). Submissions 
should refer to the investigation number (``Inv. No. 337-TA-1000'') in 
a prominent place on the cover page and/or the first page. (See 
Handbook for Electronic Filing Procedures, http://www.usitc.gov/secretary/fed_reg_notices/rules/handbook_on_electronic_filing.pdf). 
Persons with questions regarding filing should contact the Secretary 
(202-205-2000).
    Any person desiring to submit a document (or portion thereof) 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 201.6. Documents for 
which confidential treatment by the Commission is sought will be 
treated accordingly. A redacted non-confidential version of the 
document must also be filed simultaneously with any confidential 
filing. All non-confidential written submissions will be available for 
public inspection at the Office of the Secretary and on EDIS.
    This action is taken under authority of section 337 of the Tariff 
Act of 1930, as amended, 19 U.S.C. 1337, and part 210 of the 
Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR part 210).

    By order of the Commission.

    Issued: June 30, 2017.
Katherine M. Hiner,
Supervisory Attorney.
