The Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements has approved a short supply request alleging that certain 100 percent nylon dobby weave fabric, described as a dobby weave on a triple beam air jet loom and classified under HTSUS 5407.43.2030 and 5407.43.2060, is not available in commercial quantities in a timely manner from potential suppliers in the CAFTA-DR countries.
CITA has therefore added this fabric to the short supply list in Annex 3.25 of CAFTA-DR in unrestricted quantities, which will allow duty-free imports of apparel made in CAFTA-DR countries with this fabric regardless of where it is sourced. This determination is applicable as of Feb. 6.
If your company is interested in exploring a short supply petition under CAFTA-DR or any other U.S. free trade agreement, please contact textile and apparel practice leader Elise Shibles via email.
