In Executive Order No. 13191, the President delegated to CITA the authority to determine whether yarns or fabrics cannot be supplied by the domestic industry in commercial quantities in a timely manner under the CBTPA and ATPDEA and directed CITA to establish procedures to ensure appropriate public participation in any such determination. On March 6, 2001, CITA published procedures that it will follow in considering requests (66 FR 13502). On October 5, 2005, following a determination that certain compacted, plied, ring spun cotton yarns could not be supplied by the domestic industry in commercial quantities in a timely manner under the CBTPA and ATPDEA, CITA designated certain apparel made from U.S. formed fabric containing such yarns as eligible for duty-free treatment under the CBTPA and ATPDEA. On January 10, 2006, the Chairman of CITA received a petition from The National Council of Textiles Organizations (NCTO) alleging that yarns substitutable for these yarns can be supplied by the domestic industry in commercial quantities in a timely manner, and requesting that CITA revoke its previous designation regarding these yarns. On January 17, 2006, CITA published a Federal Register notice requesting public comments on NCTO’s request (71 FR 3057). The Industry Trade Advisory Committees (ITACs) charters and members’ appointments expired on February 5, 2006, and have not yet been renewed. Therefore, CITA was not able to seek ITAC advice on this request. USTR requested the advice of the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) on the probable economic effects on the domestic industry of granting the request. On February 6, 2006, CITA and USTR offered to hold consultations with the Senate Finance Committee and the House Ways and Means Committee. The Senate Finance Committee responded with general procedural questions, but provided no substantive comments. CITA met with the House Ways and Means Committee on March 9, 2006, and discussed CITA’s authority to revoke a prior designation and discussed the substance of the case. CITA carefully reviewed the request, the comments, advice received, and met with interested parties on February 22, 2006. Based on our review of the information provided, the ITC report, the public comments received, and our VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:37 Mar 15, 2006 Jkt 208001 knowledge in the industry, CITA finds that the subject yarns cannot be supplied by the domestic industry in commercial quantities in a timely manner. CITA also finds that the petitioner has not substantiated its claim that ring spun yarns currently produced by the domestic industry are substitutable for the subject compact, plied yarns. On the basis of currently available information and our review of this request, CITA has determined that the domestic industry cannot supply the subject fabrics in commercial quantities in a timely manner. Therefore, CITA is denying the request to revoke its previous designation. James C. Leonard III, Chairman, Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements.
