The workers are engaged in activities related to the production of graphite component parts. The worker group includes on-site leased workers from Reflex Staffing Services and Manpower. The negative determination was based on the findings that there had not been a decline in sales or production of graphite component parts at the subject firm during the relevant time period. The Department’s notice of negative determination was issued on December 14, 2012 and published in the Federal Register on January 4, 2013 (78 FR 771). By application dated January 9, 2013, the IUE/CWA requested administrative reconsideration of the Department’s negative determination.

The application further states that workers of one of the subject firm’s competitors (Mersen USA, Greenville, Michigan) are eligible to apply for TAA under petition TA–W– 81,550. On February 25, 2013, the Department issued a Notice of Affirmative Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration, which was published in the Federal Register on March 8, 2013 (78 FR 15048). Increased imports means imports of like or directly competitive articles have increased during the period under investigation (the twelve month period prior to the date of the petition) as compared to the representative base period, which is the one year consisting of the four quarters immediately preceding the date which is twelve months prior to the petition date. In the case at hand, the petition date is October 19, 2012. As such, the period under investigation is October 2011 through September 2012 and the representative base period is October 2010 through September 2011. In the course of the reconsideration investigation, the Department confirmed previously collected information and collected additional information from the subject firm to address the petitioner’s allegations. With respect to Section 222(a)(2)(A)(i) of the Act, the reconsideration investigation confirmed that the subject firm did not experience a decline in the sales or production of graphite parts during the period under investigation. As such, it is irrelevant whether imports of articles like or directly competitive with the graphic parts produced by the subject firm, or imports of finished articles incorporating component parts not produced in the United States, increased. With respect to Section 222(a)(2)(B) of the Act, the reconsideration investigation confirmed that the subject E:\FR\FM\15MYN1.SGM 15MYN1
