E5–985 Filed 3–8–05; 8:45 am] 18:06 Mar 08, 2005 Employment and Training Administration [TA–W–55,518] BASF Corporation Freeport, TX; Notice of Revised Determination on Reconsideration On January 12, 2005, the Department of Labor issued a Notice of Affirmative Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration applicable to the subject firm. The Notice will soon be published in the Federal Register. The initial investigation found that workers are separately identifiable by product line (polycaprolactum, oxo, diols, and acrylic monomers), that polycaprolactum, oxo and diol production increased during the relevant period, and that the subject company neither increased imports of acrylic monomers during the relevant period nor shifted acrylic monomer production abroad. The petitioner asserted in the request for reconsideration that the worker separations at the subject firm were the result of a shift of production of acrylic monomers to China. During the reconsideration investigation, it was found that workers are not separately identifiable by product line, subject facility production ceased in December 2003, production shifted to an affiliated facility located in Europe, and the subject firm increased their reliance on imports during the relevant period. The investigation also revealed that the criteria for alternative trade adjustment assistance have been met. A significant number or proportion of the worker group are age fifty years or over and workers possess skills that are not easily transferable. Competitive conditions within the industry are adverse. Conclusion After careful review of the additional facts obtained on reconsideration, I conclude that increased imports of articles like or directly competitive with those produced at BASF Corporation, Freeport, Texas contributed importantly to worker separations at the subject firm. In accordance with the provisions of the Act, I make the following certification: All workers of BASF Corporation, Freeport, Texas, who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after August 30, 2003, through two years from the date of this certification, are eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under Section 223 BILLING CODE 4510–30–P VerDate jul<14>2003 of the Trade Act of 1974, and are also eligible to apply for alternative trade adjustment assistance under Section 246 of the Trade Act of 1974.

The denial notice was signed on December 15, 2004 and published in the Federal Register on January 24, 2005 (70 FR 3390). The TAA petition, filed on behalf of workers at DHS Veneer, Subsidiary of Faces by Bacon, Inc., Thomasville, North Carolina engaged in production of veneer faces was denied because the ‘‘contributed importantly’’ group eligibility requirement of Section 222 of the Trade Act of 1974 was not met. In the request for reconsideration, the petitioner provided additional list of the subject firm’s customers and requested to investigate a secondary impact on the subject firm as an upstream supplier in the furniture industry. A review of the new facts determined that the workers of the subject firm may qualify eligible for TAA on the basis of a secondary upstream supplier impact. Having conducted an investigation of subject firm workers on the basis of secondary impact, it was revealed that DHS Veneer, Subsidiary of Faces by Bacon, Inc., Thomasville, North Carolina supplied veneer faces that were used in the production of furniture, and a loss of business with domestic manufacturers (whose workers were certified eligible to apply for adjustment assistance) contributed importantly to the workers separation or threat of separation. In accordance with Section 246 the Trade Act of 1974 (26 U.S.C. 2813), as amended, the Department of Labor herein presents the results of its investigation regarding certification of eligibility to apply for alternative trade adjustment assistance (ATAA) for older workers. In order for the Department to issue a certification of eligibility to apply for ATAA, the group eligibility requirements of Section 246 of the Trade Act must be met. The Department has determined in this case that the PO 00000 Frm 00097 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 11701 requirements of Section 246 have been met. A significant number of workers at the firm are age 50 or over and possess skills that are not easily transferable. Competitive conditions within the industry are adverse. Conclusion After careful review of the facts obtained in the investigation, I determine that workers of DHS Veneer, Subsidiary of Faces by Bacon, Inc., Thomasville, North Carolina qualify as adversely affected secondary workers under Section 222 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended. In accordance with the provisions of the Act, I make the following certification: All workers of DHS Veneer, Subsidiary of Faces by Bacon, Inc., Thomasville, North Carolina who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after October 27, 2003 through two years from the date of this certification, are eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974, and are eligible to apply for alternative trade adjustment assistance under Section 246 of the Trade Act of 1974.
