apply for TAA, the group eligibility requirements under Section 222(a) 
of the Act (19 U.S.C. 2272(a)) must be met, as follows:

[[Page 53298]]

    (1) The first criterion (set forth in Section 222(a)(1) of the Act, 
19 U.S.C. 2272(a)(1)) is that a significant number or proportion of the 
workers in such workers' firm (or ``such firm'') have become totally or 
partially separated, or are threatened to become totally or partially 
separated;

AND (2(A) or 2(B) below)

    (2) The second criterion (set forth in Section 222(a)(2) of the 
Act, 19 U.S.C. 2272(a)(2)) may be satisfied by either (A) the Increased 
Imports Path, or (B) the Shift in Production or Services to a Foreign 
Country Path/Acquisition of Articles or Services from a Foreign Country 
Path, as follows:

(A) Increased Imports Path

    (i) The sales or production, or both, of such firm, have decreased 
absolutely;

AND (ii and iii below)

    (ii)(I) imports of articles or services like or directly 
competitive with articles produced or services supplied by such firm 
have increased; OR
    (II)(aa) imports of articles like or directly competitive with 
articles into which one or more component parts produced by such firm 
are directly incorporated, have increased; OR
    (II)(bb) imports of articles like or directly competitive with 
articles which are produced directly using the services supplied by 
such firm, have increased; OR
    (III) imports of articles directly incorporating one or more 
component parts produced outside the United States that are like or 
directly competitive with imports of articles incorporating one or more 
component parts produced by such firm have increased;

AND

    (iii) the increase in imports described in clause (ii) contributed 
importantly to such workers' separation or threat of separation and to 
the decline in the sales or production of such firm; OR

(B) Shift in Production or Services to a Foreign Country Path or 
Acquisition of Articles or Services From a Foreign Country Path

    (i)(I) There has been a shift by such workers' firm to a foreign 
country in the production of articles or the supply of services like or 
directly competitive with articles which are produced or services which 
are supplied by such firm; OR
    (II) such workers' firm has acquired from a foreign country 
articles or services that are like or directly competitive with 
articles which are produced or services which are supplied by such 
firm;

AND

    (ii) the shift described in clause (i)(I) or the acquisition of 
articles or services described in clause (i)(II) contributed 
importantly to such workers' separation or threat of separation.

Section 222(b)--Adversely Affected Secondary Workers

    In order for an affirmative determination to be made for adversely 
affected secondary workers of a firm and a certification issued 
regarding eligibility to apply for TAA, the group eligibility 
requirements of Section 222(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 2272(b)) must be 
met, as follows:
    (1) A significant number or proportion of the workers in the 
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

    (2) the workers' firm is a supplier or downstream producer to a 
firm that employed a group of workers who received a certification of 
eligibility under Section 222(a) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 2272(a)), and 
such supply or production is related to the article or service that was 
the basis for such certification (as defined in subsection 222(c)(3) 
and (4) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 2272(c)(3) and (4));

AND

    (3) either--
    (A) the workers' firm is a supplier and the component parts it 
supplied to the firm described in paragraph (2) accounted for at least 
20 percent of the production or sales of the workers' firm; OR
    (B) a loss of business by the workers' firm with the firm described 
in paragraph (2) contributed importantly to the workers' separation or 
threat of separation determined under paragraph (1).

Section 222(e)--Firms Identified by the International Trade Commission

    In order for an affirmative determination to be made for adversely 
affected workers in firms identified by the International Trade
