The notice was published in the Federal Register on December 15, 2008 (73 FR 76057). The initial investigation, which was filed on behalf of workers at International Paper Company, Pensacola Mill, Cantonment, Florida engaged in the production of linerboard and fluff pulp, was denied because criteria (1)(2)(A)(I.B) and (1)(2)(A)(II.A) had not been met. The subject firm did not separate or threaten to separate a significant number or proportion of workers as required by Section 222 of the Trade Act of 1974. In the request for reconsideration, the petitioner stated that workers of the subject firm used to produce uncoated freesheet (copy paper) products. The petitioner also stated that in 2006 the subject firm discontinued production of uncoated freesheet paper and was certified eligible for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA). The petitioner requested an extension of TAA certification for workers of the subject firm who lost employment or would be terminated from the subject facility after the expiration date of the previous certification, based on the same evidence revealed in the investigation in 2006. The petitioner seems to allege that because the subject firm was previously certified eligible for TAA, the workers of the subject firm should be granted another TAA certification. The investigation revealed that the workers of the subject firm were certified eligible for TAA (TA–W– 59,338) on May 8, 2006 based on increased imports of uncoated freesheet paper. The investigation also revealed that production of uncoated freesheet paper at the subject firm ceased in May 2007. At that time, the subject facility was converted to manufacture linerboard and fluff pulp. When assessing eligibility for TAA, the Department exclusively considers employment, sales, production and import impact during the relevant period (from one year prior to the date of the petition).
