The determination was issued on December 18, 2009, and the Notice of Determination was published in the PO 00000 Frm 00054 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 38125 Federal Register on February 16, 2010 (75 FR 7034). The initial investigation resulted in a negative determination based on the finding that, during the relevant period, Fanuc Robotics America neither imported articles like or directly competitive with the robotic systems produced at the subject firm nor shifted production of robotic systems to a foreign country. Furthermore, the Department surveyed Fanuc Robotics America’s major declining customers regarding purchases of robotic systems in 2007, 2008, and during January through April 2009. The survey revealed negligible imports of robotic systems during the relevant period. The investigation also revealed that the subject firm was not eligible as a Supplier or a Downstream Producer because they did not supply a component part used by a firm that employed a worker group covered by an active TAA certification. In the request for reconsideration, the petitioner provided additional information to support a secondary certification. Further, the petitioner had emphasized that subject firm workers had participated in the production process in their customers’ plants during the initial installation, testing, and worker training phases that followed the delivery of the subject firm’s robotic devices to the customers.

    By application received March 22, 2010, the petitioner requested 
administrative reconsideration of the negative determination regarding

determination was issued on December 18, 2009, and the Notice of 
Determination was published in the Federal Register on February 16, 
2010 (75 FR 7034).
    The initial investigation resulted in a negative determination 
based on the finding that, during the relevant period, Fanuc Robotics 
America neither imported articles like or directly competitive with the 
robotic systems produced at the subject firm nor shifted production of 
robotic systems to a foreign country.
    Furthermore, the Department surveyed Fanuc Robotics America's major 
declining customers regarding purchases of robotic systems in 2007, 
2008, and during January through April 2009. The survey revealed 
negligible imports of robotic systems during the relevant period.
    The investigation also revealed that the subject firm was not 
eligible as a Supplier or a Downstream Producer because they did not 
supply a component part used by a firm that employed a worker group 
covered by an active TAA certification.
    In the request for reconsideration, the petitioner provided 
additional information to support a secondary certification. Further, 
the petitioner had emphasized that subject firm workers had 
participated in the production process in their customers' plants 
during the initial installation, testing, and worker training phases 
that followed the delivery of the subject firm's robotic devices to the

    The Department has carefully reviewed the request for 
reconsideration and the existing record, and has determined that the 
Department will conduct further investigation to determine if the

Conclusion

    After careful review of the application, I conclude that the claim 
is of sufficient weight to justify reconsideration of the U.S. 
Department of Labor's prior decision. The application is, therefore, 
granted.
