A textile and apparel good containing fabrics, yarns, or fibers that is included in Annex 3.25 of the Agreement will be treated as if it is an originating good for purposes of the specific rules of origin in Annex 4.1 of the Agreement, regardless of the actual origin of those inputs. However, all other fabrics, yarns, or fibers of the component that determines the classification of the good must meet the specific rules of origin in Annex 4.1 of the Agreement. The CAFTA-DR provides that the President will establish procedures governing the submission of requests and may determine whether additional fabrics, yarns, or fibers are available or are not available in commercial quantities in a timely manner in the United States or the other CAFTA-DR countries. In addition, the CAFTA-DR establishes that the President may remove a fabric, yarn, or fiber from the list, if it has been added to the list in an unrestricted quantity pursuant to section 203(o), if he determines that the fabric, yarn, or fiber has become available in commercial quantities in a timely manner.
