SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This investigation was instituted by the Commission based on a complaint filed by Fabrio Perini North America Inc. (“Perini-NA”) of Green Bay, Wisconsin. 70 FR 46884 (August 11, 2005). The complaint alleged violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, 19 U.S.C. 1337, in the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain tissue converting machinery, including rewinders, tail sealers, trim removers, and components thereof by reason of infringement of claims 1, 3, 6, 7, 8, 13, 14, and 15 of U.S. Patent No. 5,979,818, claims 1-5 of U.S. Patent No. Re. 35,729, and Claim 5 of U.S. Patent No. 5,475,917. The complaint and notice of investigation named Chan Li Machinery, Co., Ltd. (“Chan Li”) of Taipei Hsien, Taiwan as the respondent.

On January 17, 2006, Chan Li moved to compel Fabio Perini S.p.A. (“Perini-Italy”) to join as a complainant, arguing that it is an indispensable party for purposes of this litigation. On January 23, 2006, Perini-NA represented that Perini-Italy consented to joinder as a complainant. The Commission Investigative Staff indicated that it supported adding Perini-Italy as a complainant. On January 25, 2006, the ALJ issued an ID (Order No. 11) adding Perini-Italy as a complainant and amending the notice of investigation accordingly.

This action is taken under the authority of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, 19 U.S.C. 1337, and Commission Rule 210.42, 19 CFR 210.42.
