The notice was published in the Federal Register on January 16, 2008 (73 FR 2941). The initial investigation resulted in a negative determination based on the finding that imports of eyelet parts and miniature stamping did not contribute importantly to worker separations at the subject firm and no shift of production to a foreign source occurred. The company official of the subject firm filed a request for reconsideration and provided a list of customers which allegedly are importing products.

The survey revealed that the customers did not import eyelet parts and miniature stampings during the relevant period. The petitioner also stated that the subject firm did not shift production of eyelet parts and miniature stamping abroad, but the customers of the subject firm shifted production of automotive and electronic parts production to China, thus negatively impacting production at the subject firm. The fact that subject firm’s customers are shifting their production abroad is not relevant to this investigation. According to section (a)(2)(B) of the E:\FR\FM\13FEN1.SGM 13FEN1
