The authority for the Commission's action is contained in section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1337), and in section 210.76 of the Commission's rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 210.76).

On August 20, 1997, the Commission issued a limited exclusion order in the investigation based upon a finding that respondents Showa Aluminum Corporation and Showa Aluminum Corporation of America (collectively “Showa”) had violated section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1337), by importing certain condensers that infringed claims 9 and 10 of U.S. Letters Patent assigned to Modine.

On September 7, 2000, Showa and complainant Modine Manufacturing Company (“Modine”) filed a joint petition to rescind the remedial order under Commission rule 210.76 on the basis of a settlement agreement they had reached. Showa and Modine asserted that their settlement agreement constituted “changed conditions of fact or law” sufficient to justify recission of the order under Commission rule 210.76(a), 19 CFR 210.76(a).

Having reviewed the parties' submissions, the Commission determined that the petition and settlement agreement satisfy the requirements of rule 210.76(a). The Commission therefore issued an order rescinding the limited exclusion order previously issued in the investigation.

Copies of the Commission's order and all other nonconfidential documents filed in connection with this investigation are or will be available for inspection during official business hours (8:45 a.m. to 5:15 p.m.) In the Office of the Secretary, U.S. International Trade Commission, 500 E.
