Download as PDF 63167 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 216 / Thursday, November 8, 2007 / Notices Authority: Section 203(o)(4) of the Dominican Republic-Central America-United States Free Trade Agreement Implementation Act (CAFTA-DR Act); the Statement of Administrative Action (SAA), accompanying the CAFTA-DR Act; Presidential Proclamations 7987 (February 28, 2006) and 7996 (March 31, 2006). rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES BACKGROUND: The CAFTA-DR Agreement provides a list in Annex 3.25 for fabrics, yarns, and fibers that the Parties to the CAFTA-DR Agreement have determined are not available in commercial quantities in a timely manner in the territory of any Party. Articles that otherwise meet the rule of origin to qualify for preferential treatment are not disqualified because they contain one of the products on the Annex 3.25 list. The CAFTA-DR Agreement provides that the list in Annex 3.25 may be modified pursuant to Article 3.25(4)-(5) when the President of the United States determines that a fabric, yarn, or fiber is not available in commercial quantities in a timely manner in the territory of any Party. See also section 203(o)(4)(C) of the CAFTA-DR Act. The CAFTA-DR Act requires the President to establish procedures governing the submission of a request and providing an opportunity for interested entities to submit comments and supporting evidence before a commercial availability determination is made. In Presidential Proclamations 7987 and 7996, the President delegated to CITA the authority under section 203(o)(4) of CAFTA-DR Act for modifying the Annex 3.25 list. On March 21, 2007, CITA published final procedures it would follow in considering requests to modify the Annex 3.25 list (72 FR 13256). On September 20, 2007, the Chairman of CITA received a request from Alston & Bird, LLP on behalf of Perry Manufacturing Company for certain three-thread circular knit fleece fabrics, of the specifications detailed below. On September 24, 2007, CITA notified interested parties of, and posted on its website, the accepted request and asked that interested entities provide, by October 4, 2007, a response advising of its objection to the request or its ability to supply the subject product, and rebuttals to responses by October 11, 2007. On October 1, 2007, Texpasa, S.A. (‘‘Texpasa’’) advised CITA of its objection to the request, explaining its ability to supply the fabrics listed in the request. On October 3, 2007, Elasticos Centro Americanos y Textiles (‘‘Elcatex’’) advised CITA of its objection to the request by submitting a VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:54 Nov 07, 2007 Jkt 214001 response with an offer to supply certain fabrics. In its rebuttal submitted on October 10, 2007, Perry asserted that neither Texpasa’s nor Elcatex’responses were sufficient. In the case of Texpasa, Perry claimed that it was concerned that Tepasa cannot supply the required quantity of fabric. With respect to Elcatex, Perry stated that the fabric Elcatex offered to supply did not meet Perry’s specifications. As a result, Perry asserted that Elcatex could not supply the fabrics in question. On October 15, 2007, in accordance with Section 203(o)(4)(C)(iv) of the CAFTA-DR Implementation Act and section 8(c)(4) of CITA’s procedures, because there was insufficient information to make a determination after 30 days, CITA extended the period for making a determination by 14 U.S. business days. On October 23 and 24, 2007, respectively, Texpasa and Elcatex advised CITA that they were withdrawing their responses to Perry’s request. In accordance with Section 203(o)(4)(C)(iii)(II) of the CAFTA-DR Act, and its procedures, as the two entities who objected to the request both withdrew their objections, and because no other interested entity submitted a response advising CITA of its objection to the request or its ability to supply the subject product, CITA has determined to add the specified fabrics to the list in Annex 3.25 of the CAFTA-DR Agreement. The subject fabrics are added to the list in Annex 3.25 of the CAFTA-DR Agreement in unrestricted quantities. A revised list has been published on-line.
