Tuesday, July 02, 2013
Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements has determined to add to the short supply list in Annex 3.25 of DR-CAFTA in unrestricted quantities certain warp stretch woven nylon/rayon/spandex fabric, classified under HTSUS 5516.22.0040 or 5516.23.0040. CITA found that this fabric is not available in commercial quantities in a timely manner from a supplier in the DR-CAFTA countries. As a result, garments cut and assembled in a DR-CAFTA country from such fabric, regardless of where it is sourced, may be imported duty-free into the U.S.
