Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 139 / Thursday, July 21, 2005 / Notices and Solicitations of Public Comments, 70 FR 24397 (May 9, 2005). On April 6, 2005, the Committee received a request from the American Manufacturing Trade Action Coalition, the National Council of Textile Organizations, the National Textile Association, and UNITE HERE requesting that the Committee limit imports from China of other synthetic filament fabric (Category 620) due to market disruption (‘‘market disruption case’’). The Committee determined that this request provided the information necessary for the Committee to consider the request and solicited public comments for a period of 30 days. See Solicitation of Public Comment on Request for Textile and Apparel Safeguard Action on Imports from China, 70 FR 23124 (May 4, 2005). The Committee’s Procedure, 68 FR 27787 (May 21, 2003) state that the Committee will make a determination within 60 calendar days of the close of the public comment period as to whether the United States will request consultations with China. If the Committee is unable to make a determination within 60 calendar days, it will cause to be published a notice in the Federal Register, including the date by which it will make a determination. The 60-day determination period for the threat case expired on July 18, 2005. However, the Committee is unable to make a determination at this time; it is continuing to evaluate conditions in the U.S. market for other synthetic filament fabric and information obtained from public comments on both the threat and market disruption cases. The Committee is therefore extending the determination period to July 31, 2005. The Committee may, at its discretion, make such determination prior to July 31, 2005. James C. Leonard III, Chairman, Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements. [FR Doc.05–14531 Filed 7–19–05; 1:59 pm] BILLING CODE 3510–DS–S COMMITTEE FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF TEXTILE AGREEMENTS Denial of Commercial Availability Request under the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) and the United States-Caribbean Basin Trade Partnership Act (CBTPA) July 18, 2005. The Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements (CITA). ACTION: Denial of the request alleging that certain woven bamboo/cotton fabric AGENCY: VerDate jul<14>2003 19:42 Jul 20, 2005 Jkt 205001 cannot be supplied by the domestic in commercial quantities in a timely manner under the AGOA and the CBTPA. SUMMARY: On May 18, 2005 the Chairman of CITA received a petition from Columbia Sportswear Company alleging that certain woven bamboo/ cotton fabric, of detailed specifications, classified in subheading 5516.42.0022 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), cannot be supplied by the domestic industry in commercial quantities in a timely manner. The petition requested that apparel articles of such fabrics be eligible for preferential treatment under the AGOA and the CBTPA. CITA has determined that the subject fabrics can be supplied by the domestic industry in commercial quantities in a timely manner and, therefore, denies the request. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Janet E. Heinzen, International Trade Specialist, Office of Textiles and Apparel, U.S. Department of Commerce, (202) 482-3400. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Authority: Section 112(b)(5)(B) of the AGOA; Section 211(a) of the CBTPA amending Section 213(b)(2)(A)(v)(II) of the Caribbean Basin Economic Recovery Act (CBERA); Sections 1 and 6 of Executive Order No. 13191 of January 17, 2001; Presidential Proclamations 7350 and 7351 of October 2, 2000. Background: The AGOA and the CBTPA provide for quota- and duty-free treatment for qualifying textile and apparel products. Such treatment is generally limited to products manufactured from yarns and fabrics formed in the United States or a beneficiary country. The AGOA and the CBTPA also provide for quota- and duty-free treatment for apparel articles that are both cut (or knit-to-shape) and sewn or otherwise assembled in one or more beneficiary countries from fabric or yarn that is not formed in the United States, if it has been determined that such fabric or yarn cannot be supplied by the domestic industry in commercial quantities in a timely manner. In Executive Order No. 13191 (66 FR 7271), CITA has been delegated the authority to determine whether yarns or fabrics cannot be supplied by the domestic industry in commercial quantities in a timely manner under the AGOA and the CBTPA. On March 6, 2001, CITA published procedures that it will follow in considering requests (66 FR 13502). On May 18, 2005, the Chairman of CITA received a petition from Columbia PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 42041 Sportswear Company alleging that certain woven bamboo/cotton fabric, of detailed specifications, classified in HTSUS subheading 5516.42.0022, cannot be supplied by the domestic industry in commercial quantities in a timely manner. The petition requested that apparel articles of such fabric be eligible for preferential treatment under the AGOA and the CBTPA. On May 25, 2005, CITA published a Federal Register notice requesting public comments on the request, particularly with respect to whether this fabric can be supplied by the domestic industry in commercial quantities in a timely manner. See Request for Public Comments on Commercial Availability Petition under the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) and the United States - Caribbean Basin Trade Partnership Act (CBTPA), 70 FR 30088 (May 25, 2005). On June 10, 2005, CITA and USTR offered to hold consultations with the House Ways and Means Committee and the Senate Finance Committee, but no consultations were requested. We also requested advice from the U.S. International Trade Commission and the relevant Industry Trade Advisory Committees. Based on the information and advice received by CITA, public comments, and the report from the International Trade Commission, CITA found that there is domestic production, capacity, and ability to supply the subject fabric in commercial quantities in a timely manner. On the basis of currently available information and our review of this request, CITA has determined that there is domestic capacity to supply the subject fabric in commercial quantities in a timely manner. The request from Columbia Sportswear Company is denied. James C. Leonard III, Chairman, Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements. [FR Doc.
