    (D) Imports of articles like or directly competitive with articles 
which are produced directly using services supplied by such firm, have 
increased; and
    (4) The increase in imports contributed importantly to such

sales or production of such firm; or
    II. Under Section 222(a)(2)(B), all of the following must be 
satisfied:
    (1) A significant number or proportion of the workers in such 
workers' firm have become totally or partially separated, or are 
threatened to become totally or partially separated;

regarding eligibility to apply for worker adjustment assistance, each 
of the group eligibility requirements of Section 222(b) of the Act must
