    In the request for reconsideration, a company official provided 
additional information regarding a shift in plant production of test

prototypes to China with the intent to import test and measurement 
equipment prototypes back into the United States. The investigation 
further revealed that employment declined at the subject firm.
    In accordance with Section 246 the Trade Act of 1974 (26 U.S.C.

imports of like or directly competitive articles. In accordance with
