The Department’s Notice of Affirmative Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration was signed on March 12, 2009, and published in the Federal Register on March 23, 2009 (74 FR 12151). The initial determination was based on the Department’s findings that imports of vinyl replacement windows and doors did not contribute importantly to worker separations at the subject firm and that no shift of production to a foreign country occurred. In the request for reconsideration, the petitioner alleges that the workers of the subject firm were negatively impacted by foreign imports and requested the Department of Labor conduct an in depth analysis of the customer surveys. VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:39 Apr 13, 2009 Jkt 217001 A. A significant number or proportion of the workers in such workers’ firm, or an appropriate subdivision of the firm, have become totally or partially separated, or are threatened to become totally or partially separated; and B. The sales or production, or both, of such firm or subdivision have decreased absolutely; and C. Increased imports of articles like or directly competitive with articles produced by such firm or subdivision have contributed importantly to such workers’ separation or threat of separation and to the decline in sales or production of such firm or subdivision. During the reconsideration investigation, the Department conducted a more detailed survey of additional customers regarding their purchases of vinyl replacement windows and doors (including like or directly competitive articles) during 2006, 2007, January through November 2007 and January through November 2008. Based on the information provided by the major declining customers, the Department determined that none of the customers imported vinyl replacement windows and doors while decreasing their purchases from the subject firm during the relevant period. Based on the information above, the Department determines that the group eligibility requirements under Section 222(a) of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended, were not met. In order for the Department to issue a certification of eligibility to apply for ATAA, the subject worker group must be certified eligible to apply for TAA.

Schulman, Inc.; Polybatch Color Center Sharon Center, Ohio; Notice of Revised Determination on Reconsideration On February 24, 2009, the Department issued an Affirmative Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration applicable to workers and former workers of the subject firm. The notice was published in the Federal Register on March 4, 2009 (74 FR 9430). The previous investigation initiated on November 10, 2008, resulted in a negative determination issued on December 22, 2008, was based on the finding that imports of color concentrates did not contribute importantly to worker separations at the subject firm and no shift of production to a foreign source occurred. The denial notice was published in the Federal Register on January 14, 2009 (74 FR 2139). E:\FR\FM\14APN1.SGM 14APN1
