    In accordance with Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended 
(19 U.S.C. 2273) the Department of Labor herein presents summaries of 
determinations regarding eligibility to apply for trade adjustment 
assistance for workers by (TA-W) number issued during the period of 
August 25, 2015 through September 11, 2015.
    In order for an affirmative determination to be made for workers of 
a primary firm and a certification issued regarding eligibility to 
apply for worker adjustment assistance, each of the group eligibility 
requirements of Section 222(a) of the Act must be met.
    I. Under Section 222(a)(2)(A), 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;
    (2) the sales or production, or both, of such firm have decreased 
absolutely; and
    (3) One of the following must be satisfied:
    (A) Imports of articles or services like or directly competitive 
with articles produced or services supplied by such firm have 
increased;
    (B) 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;
    (C) 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;
    (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 
workers' separation or threat of separation and to the decline in the 
sales or production of such firm; or
    II. 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;
    (2) One of the following must be satisfied:
    (A) There has been a shift by the workers' firm to a foreign 
country in the production of articles or supply of services like or 
directly competitive with those produced/supplied by the workers' firm;
    (B) there has been an acquisition from a foreign country by the 
workers' firm of articles/services that are like or directly 
competitive with those produced/supplied by the workers' firm; and
    (3) the shift/acquisition contributed importantly to the workers' 
separation or threat of separation.
    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 worker adjustment assistance, each 
of the group eligibility requirements of Section 222(b) of the Act must 
be met.

firm that employed a group of workers who received a certification of 
eligibility under Section 222(a) of the Act, and such supply or 
production is related to the article or service that was the basis for 
such certification; 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.
    In order for an affirmative determination to be made for adversely 
affected workers in firms identified by the International Trade 
Commission and a certification issued regarding eligibility to apply 
for worker adjustment assistance, each of the group eligibility
