Background

The International Trade Commission is inviting comments through July 11 on a proposed modification to the rules of origin under the U.S.-Chile Free Trade Agreement for woven fabric of artificial filament yarns. U.S. Trade Representative Mike Froman said U.S. and Chilean negotiators recently reached an agreement in principle on this change, which is the result of determinations that U.S. and Chilean producers are unable to produce rayon filament yarns in commercial quantities in a timely manner.

The ITC is investigating the probable economic effect of the proposed change on U.S. trade under the FTA, total U.S. trade and domestic producers of the affected articles. The ITC expects to submit its report to USTR by Aug. 24 and to issue a public version as soon as possible thereafter.
