The Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements has received a short supply request alleging that certain cotton shirting fabric is not available in commercial quantities in a timely manner from suppliers in the CAFTA-DR countries. The fabric at issue is a printed modal rayon/polyester woven fabric classifiable under HTSUS 5516.14 and 5516.24.

The petitioner is requesting that this fabric be added to the short supply list in Annex 3.25 of CAFTA-DR in an unrestricted quantity, which would allow duty-free imports of apparel made in CAFTA-DR countries with this fabric regardless of where it is sourced. Responses with an offer to supply this fabric are due no later than April 3.

If your company is interested in exploring a short supply petition, please contact Nicole Bivens Collinson or Mark Tallo.
