SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Commission instituted this investigation, which concerns allegations of unfair acts in violation of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 in the importation and sale of certain signature capture transaction devices, component parts thereof, and systems that employ such devices on January 9, 2004, based on a complaint filed by NCR Corporation, (“NCR”) of Dayton, Ohio. The respondents named in the notice of investigation are Ingenico S.A., d/b/a Groupe Ingenico of Puteaux Cedex, France, and Ingenico Corp., of Roswell, Georgia (collectively “Ingenico”), and SMTC Corporation of Ontario, Canada (“SMTC”).

On March 5, 2004, NCR and Ingenico filed a joint motion to terminate the investigation on the basis of the settlement agreement, and NCR filed a motion to terminate the investigation with respect to SMTC based on withdrawal of the complaint as to SMTC. The Commission investigative attorney supported both motions.

On March 22, 2004, the presiding ALJ issued the subject ID (Order No. 8) granting the joint motion of NCR and Ingenico to terminate the investigation on the basis of a settlement agreement and NCR's motion to withdraw the complaint as to SMTC.

The authority for the Commission's determination is contained in section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1337), and in section 210.42 of the Commission's rules of practice and procedure (19 CFR 210.42).
