The denial notice was signed on April 11, 2008 and published in the Federal Register on April 23, 2008 (73 FR 21992). Pursuant to 29 CFR 90.18(c) reconsideration may be granted under the following circumstances: (1) If it appears on the basis of facts not previously considered that the determination complained of was erroneous; (2) If it appears that the determination complained of was based on a mistake PO 00000 Frm 00050 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 29783 in the determination of facts not previously considered; or (3) If in the opinion of the Certifying Officer, a misinterpretation of facts or of the law justified reconsideration of the decision. The negative TAA determination issued by the Department for workers of Russound, also known as Folded Metal Products, Inc., Newmarket, New Hampshire was based on the finding that the worker group does not produce an article within the meaning of Section 222 of the Trade Act of 1974. The petitioner infers that employment at the subject firm was negatively impacted by the outsourcing of production by other companies to foreign sources. Following this shift of production abroad, jobs performed by workers of the subject firm (electronic, mechanical and industrial designers and engineers, supply chain managers, safety/compliance engineers) were also shifted or outsourced abroad. The petitioner also states that regardless of whether the workers of the subject firm produce a product or provide services, they should be certified eligible for Trade Adjustment Assistance. The investigation revealed that the workers of Russound, also known as Folded Metal Products, Inc., Newmarket, New Hampshire are engaged in functions related to the design and distribution of audio-video systems and connectivity products. These functions, as described above, are not considered production of an article within the meaning of Section 222 of the Trade Act of 1974. The allegation of a shift to another country might be relevant if it was determined that workers of the subject firm produced an article. Since the investigation determined that workers of Russound, also known as Folded Metal Products, Inc., Newmarket, New Hampshire do not produce an article, there cannot be imports nor a shift in production of an ‘‘article’’ abroad within the meaning of the Trade Act of 1974 in this instance. The petitioner did not supply facts not previously considered; nor provide additional documentation indicating that there was either (1) a mistake in the determination of facts not previously considered or (2) a misinterpretation of facts or of the law justifying reconsideration of the initial determination. After careful review of the request for reconsideration, the Department determines that 29 CFR 90.18(c) has not been met. E:\FR\FM\22MYN1.SGM 22MYN1
