The United States International Trade Commission (``Commission'') proposes to amend its Rules of Practice and Procedure concerning rules of general application, adjudication, and enforcement. The amendments are necessary to gather more information on public interest issues arising from complaints filed with the Commission requesting institution of an investigation under section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, 19 U.S.C. 1337. The intended effect of the proposed amendments is to aid the Commission in identifying investigations that require further development of public interest issues in the record, and to identify and develop information regarding the public interest at each stage of the investigation.
