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.

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 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.
