SUMMARY: In Proclamation 8111 of February 28, 2007, the President 
modified the rules of origin for certain goods of Mexico under the 
North American Free Trade Agreement (the ``NAFTA'') incorporated in the 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (the ``HTS''). The 
proclamation stated that the modifications would be effective on the 
date to be announced in the Federal Register by the United States Trade 
Representative (the ``USTR'') and would apply to goods of Mexico that 
are entered, or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, on or after 
the date indicated in the proclamation. The purpose of this notice is 
to announce that the effective date for the modifications is July 30, 
2007. The changes were printed in the Federal Register of March 6, 2007 
(72 FR 10028).

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For further information, please 
contact Caroyl Miller, Deputy Special Textile Negotiator, Office of the 
United States Trade Representative, 600 17th Street, NW., Washington, 
DC 20508, fax number, (202) 395-5639.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Presidential Proclamation 6641 of December 
15, 1993 implemented the North American Free Trade Agreement (the 
``NAFTA'') with respect to the United States and, pursuant to the North 
American Free Trade Agreement Implementation Act (Pub. L. 103-182) (the 
``NAFTA Implementation Act''), incorporated in the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States (the ``HTS'') the tariff modifications 
and rules of origin necessary or appropriate to carry out the NAFTA. 
Section 202 of the NAFTA Implementation Act (19 U.S.C. 3332) provides 
rules for determining whether goods imported into the United States 
originate in the territory of a NAFTA party and thus are eligible for 
the tariff and other treatment contemplated under the NAFTA. Section 
202(q) of the NAFTA Implementation Act (19 U.S.C. 3332(q)) authorizes 
the President to proclaim, as a part of the HTS, the rules of origin 
set out in the NAFTA and to proclaim modifications to such previously 
proclaimed rules of origin, subject to the consultation and layover 
requirements of section 103(a) of the NAFTA Implementation Act (19 
U.S.C. 3313(a)).
    The President determined that the modifications to the HTS 
contained in Proclamation 8811 pursuant to sections 201 and 202 of the 
NAFTA Implementation Act were appropriate and proclaimed such changes 
with respect to goods of Mexico entered, or withdrawn from warehouse 
for consumption, on or after the date indicated in the Annex to that 
Proclamation. The President decided that the effective date of the 
modifications shall be announced by the United States Trade 
Representative (USTR).
    On March 15, 2007, the government of Mexico obtained the necessary 
authorization to implement the rule of origin changes with respect to 
goods of the United States. Subsequently, officials from the government 
of Mexico and the government of the United States agreed to implement 
these changes with respect to each other's eligible goods, effective 
July 30, 2007.
