SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    Title V of the Trade and Development Act of 2000 (the Act) created 
two tariff rate quotas (TRQs), providing for temporary reductions in 
the import duties on limited quantities of two categories of worsted 
wool fabrics suitable for use in making suits, suit-type jackets, or 
trousers: (1) for worsted wool fabric with average fiber diameters 
greater than 18.5 microns (Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United 
States (HTS) heading 9902.51.11); and (2) for worsted wool fabric with 
average fiber diameters of 18.5 microns or less (HTS heading 
9902.51.12). On August 6, 2002, President Bush signed into law the 
Trade Act of 2002, which includes several amendments to Title V of the 
Act. On December 3, 2004, the Act was further amended pursuant to the 
Miscellaneous Trade Act of 2004, Public Law 108-429, by increasing the 
TRQ for worsted wool fabric with average fiber diameters greater than 
18.5 microns, HTS 9902.51.11, to an annual total level of 5.5 million 
square meters, and extending it through 2007, and increasing the TRQ 
for average fiber diameters of 18.5 microns or less, HTS 9902.51.15 
(previously 9902.51.12), to an annual total level of 5 million square 
meters and extending it through 2006. On August 17, 2006 the Act was 
further amended pursuant to the Pension Protection Act of 2006, Public 
Law 109-280, which extended both TRQs, 9902.51.11 and 9902.51.15, 
through 2009.
    The Act requires that the TRQs be allocated to persons who cut and 
sew men's and boys' worsted wool suits, suit-type jackets and trousers 
in the United States. On May 16, 2005, the Department published 
regulations establishing procedures for allocating the TRQ. 70 FR 
25774, 15 CFR 335. In order to be eligible for an allocation, an 
applicant must submit an application on the form provided at http://
web.ita.doc.gov/tacgi/wooltrq.nsf/TRQApp to the address listed above by 
5 p.m. on September 28, 2006 in compliance with the requirements of 15 
CFR 335. Any business confidential information that is marked business 
confidential will be kept confidential and protected from disclosure to 
the full extent permitted by law.
