Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The International Trade Administration has determined the allocation for calendar year 2014 of imports of certain worsted wool fabrics under tariff-rate quotas.

The ITA oversees TRQs providing for temporary reductions of the import duties on specific quantities of two categories of worsted wool fabrics suitable for use in making suits, suit-type jackets or trousers: (a) fabric with average fiber diameters greater than 18.5 microns (HTSUS 9902.51.11; 5.5 million square meters), and (b) fabric with average fiber diameters of 18.5 microns or less (HTSUS 9902.51.15; five million square meters). These two TRQs are allocated to persons (including firms, corporations or other legal entities) who cut and sew men’s and boys’ worsted wool suits, suit-type jackets and trousers in the U.S. A third TRQ, which is also for worsted wool fabric with average fiber diameters of 18.5 microns or less (HTSUS 9902.51.16; two million square meters), is only for use by persons who weave worsted wool fabric in the U.S.
