Trade Adjustment Assistance Program; Designation of Certifying 
Officers

AGENCY: Employment and Training Administration; Labor.

ACTION: Notice of designation of certifying officers.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The trade adjustment assistance program operates under the 
Trade Act of 1974 to furnish program benefits to domestic workers 
adversely affected in their employment by imports of articles which are 
like or are directly competitive with articles produced by the firm 
employing the workers. The Trade Adjustment Assistance Reform Act of 
2002 amended the Trade Act of 1974, to extend eligibility to those 
workers whose firm shifted production to certain foreign countries; to 
workers of upstream supplier firms selling components to firms whose 
workers have received a certification of eligibility to apply for trade 
adjustment assistance; to workers of downstream producer firms engaged 
in assembly or finishing for firms whose workers have received a 
certification of eligibility to apply for trade adjustment assistance 
based on a shift in production or increased imports from Mexico or 
Canada; and added the program option of alternative trade adjustment 
assistance for older workers over age 50 years. Workers become eligible 
for program benefits only if the worker group is certified under the 
Act as eligible to apply for adjustment assistance and/or alternative 
trade adjustment assistance. From time to time the agency issues an 
Order designating or redesignating officials of the agency authorized 
to act as certifying officers, responsible for reviewing and signing 
adjustment assistance determinations. Employment and Training Order No. 
1-05, was issued to revise the listing of officials designated as 
certifying officers, superseding the previous Order. Employment and 
Training Order No. 1-05, is published below.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 31st day of January 2005.
Emily Stover DeRocco,
Assistant Secretary of Labor, Employment and Training Administration.
