Remedy Comments in Section 337 Investigation of Arrowheads
The USITC has decided to partially review an initial determination of the administrative law judge in charge of the Section 337 proceeding on certain arrowheads with deploying blades, components thereof and packaging therefor from mainland China granting a motion by the complainants for summary determination of violation of Section 337. The USITC is seeking comments by 20 October on the form of remedy, if any, that should be ordered. Reply submissions are due by 27 October. If some sort of remedy is contemplated, the USITC will consider 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.
