Prime Tanning Company, Incorporated, Berwick, ME; Notice of 
Revised Determination on Reconsideration

    On January 2, 2009, the Department issued an Affirmative 
Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration for the workers 
and former workers of subject firm. The Department's Notice of 
affirmative determination was published in the Federal Register on 
January 15, 2009 (74 FR 2632). Subject firm workers produce tanned 
leather.
    The negative determination was based on the Department's findings 
that the subject firm did not shift production to a foreign country and 
that neither the subject firm nor its major declining customers 
increased imports of articles like or directly competitive with those 
produced by the subject firm.
    During the reconsideration investigation, the Department received 
new information that a major declining customer had increased its 
reliance on imports of articles like or directly competitive with those 
produced by the subject firm. Therefore, the Department determines that 
increased imports contributed importantly to subject firm declines and 
workers' separations.
    In accordance with Section 246 the Trade Act of 1974 (26 U.S.C. 
2813), as amended, the Department herein presents the results of its 
investigation regarding certification of eligibility to apply for ATAA. 
The Department has determined in this case that the group eligibility 
requirements of Section 246 have been met.
    A significant number of workers at the firm are age 50 or over and 
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 Prime Tanning Company, 
Inc., Berwick, Maine, contributed importantly to the declines in sales 
or production and to the total or partial separation of workers at the 
subject firm. In accordance with the provisions of the Act, I make the 
following certification:

    ``All workers of Prime Tanning Company, Inc., Berwick, Maine, 
who became totally or partially separated from employment on or 
after September 2, 2007, 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 eligible to apply for 
alternative trade adjustment assistance under Section 246 of the 
Trade Act of 1974.''

    Signed at Washington, DC this 5th day of March 2009.

Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance.
