D/B/A Nsequence Center for Advanced Dentistry Reno, NV; Notice of Negative Determination on Reconsideration By application dated July 16, 2010, the petitioner requested administrative reconsideration of the Department’s negative determination regarding eligibility to apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA), applicable to workers and former workers of the subject firm. The determination was signed on August 13, 2010. The Department’s Notice will soon be published in the Federal Register. Workers at the subject firm are engaged in employment related to the production of dental prosthetics (such as crowns and the bridges). Pursuant to 29 CFR 90.18(c), reconsideration may be granted under the following circumstances: (1) If it appears on the basis of facts not previously considered that the determination complained of was erroneous; (2) if it appears that the determination complained of was based on a mistake in the determination of facts not previously considered; or (3) if in the opinion of the Certifying Officer, a mis-interpretation of facts or of the law justified reconsideration of the decision. The negative determination applicable to workers and former workers at Dentek.com, Inc., d/b/a nSequence Center for Advanced Dentistry, Reno, Nevada (the subject firm) was based on the findings that the subject firm did not, during the period under investigation, shift to a foreign country production of dental prosthetics, or articles like or directly competitive with those produced by the VerDate Mar<15>2010 Date of institution Subject firm (petitioners) 18:02 Nov 22, 2010 Jkt 223001 workers, or acquire these articles from a foreign country; that the workers’ separation, or threat of separation, was not related to any increase in imports of dental prosthetics, or like or directly competitive articles; and that the workers did not produce an article or supply a service that was directly used in the production of an article or the supply of service by a firm that employed a worker group that is eligible to apply for TAA based on the aforementioned article or service. During the reconsideration investigation, the Department obtained new information from the subject firm regarding imports and its operations and reviewed publically available information regarding the subject firm and its operations, as well as additional information provided by the petitioner. In a subsequent letter to the Department, the petitioner states that, in 2008, ‘‘the decision was made to begin in earnest to out-source all of the crown and the bridge except for the extreme rush cases’’ and, as a result of the action, ‘‘all of the staff was released.’’ The petitioner also alleges that vendors such as the subject firm send orders ‘‘directly to China.’’ Information obtained during the reconsideration investigation confirmed that the subject firm did not shift production of dental prosthetics, or like or directly competitive articles, to a foreign country, and that, during the relevant period, the subject firm did not increase its imports of dental prosthetics, or like or directly competitive articles. A customer survey was not conducted during the reconsideration investigation because the customers of the subject firm are individual dental health care professionals and not firms. Further, the prosthetics are custom-made for the patients of the customers. The petitioner did not supply facts not previously considered; nor provide additional documentation indicating that there was either (1) a mistake in the determination of facts not previously considered or (2) a misinterpretation of facts or of the law justifying PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 11/05/10 11/05/10 11/05/10 11/05/10 11/05/10 11/05/10 Date of petition 11/02/10 11/02/10 11/03/10 11/02/10 10/17/10 10/30/10 reconsideration of the initial determination.

Conclusion After review of the application and investigative findings, I conclude that there has been no error or misinterpretation of the law or of the facts which would justify reconsideration of the Department of Labor’s prior decision. Accordingly, the application is denied. Signed in Washington, DC, this 10th day of November, 2010. Del Min Amy Chen, Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance.

The initial investigation resulted in a negative determination based on the findings that the subject firm did not shift to/acquire from a foreign country the production of articles like or directly competitive with cigarette cartons; that neither the subject firm nor its major declining customers increased imports of articles like or directly competitive with cigarette cartons; that the subject workers are not adversely affected secondary workers; and the International Trade Commission did not identify the subject firm by name as an injured member of a domestic industry in an investigation pursuant to the Tariff Act of 1930. During the reconsideration investigation, the Department reviewed additional information provided by the petitioner and previously-submitted information, as well as additional information obtained from other sources. During the reconsideration investigation, the Department confirmed that the subject firm supplied folding cartons used primarily in the tobacco market and confirmed the subject firm’s customer base. During the reconsideration investigation, the Department received new information regarding the relationship between the subject firm and a major declining customer and the operations of the customer, with regards to cigarette cartons. Based on the new information, the Department determines that the subject firm is a supplier to a firm that employs a worker group currently eligible to apply for TAA; the supply of the component part is related to the finished article that is the basis for the TAA certification; and the firm accounts for at least twenty percent of the production or sales of the subject firm.

Determination on Reconsideration

    By application dated July 22, 2010 petitioners requested

[[Page 71464]]

that, during the period of investigation, imports of articles directly 
incorporating cotton yarn produced outside the United States that are 
like or directly competitive with imports of articles incorporating 
cotton yarn produced by Woodland Mills Corporation, Mill Spring, North 
Carolina Woodland Mills Corporation, Mill Spring, North Carolina had 
increased, and the increased imports contributed importantly to worker 
separations and declines in sales and production at the afore-mentioned 
firm.

reconsideration investigation, I determine that workers of Woodland 
Mills Corporation, Mill Spring, North Carolina, who are engaged in 
employment related to the production of cotton yarn, meet the worker 
group certification criteria under Section 222(a) of the Act, 19 U.S.C.

make the following certification:

    ``All workers of Woodland Mills Corporation, Mill Spring, North

on or after March 10, 2009, through two years from the date of this 
revised certification, and all workers in the group threatened with 
total or partial separation from employment on date of certification 
through two years from the date of certification, are eligible to 
apply for adjustment assistance under Chapter 2 of Title II of the 
Trade Act of 1974, as amended.''
