SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background: Title V of the Trade and Development Act of 2000 as amended by the Trade Act of 2002, the Miscellaneous Trade Act of 2004 and the Pension Protection Act of 2006, and the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 creates two tariff rate quotas, providing for temporary reductions in the import duties on two categories of worsted wool fabrics suitable for use in making suits, suittype jackets, or trousers. For worsted wool fabric with average fiber diameters greater than 18.5 microns (Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) heading 9902.51.11), the reduction in duty is limited to 5,500,000 square meters in 2011. For worsted wool fabric with average fiber diameters of 18.5 microns or less (HTSUS heading 9902.51.15), the reduction is limited to 5,000,000 square meters in 2011. The Miscellaneous Trade Act of 2004 requires the President to ensure that such fabrics are fairly allocated to persons (including firms, corporations, or other legal entities) who cut and sew men’s and boys’ worsted wool suits and suit-like jackets and trousers in the United States and who apply for an allocation based on the amount of such suits cut and sewn during the prior calendar year. Presidential Proclamation 7383, of December 1, 2000, authorized the Secretary of Commerce to allocate the quantity of worsted wool fabric imports under the tariff rate quotas. The Miscellaneous Trade Act also authorized Commerce to allocate a new HTS category, HTS 9902.51.16. This HTS refers to worsted wool fabric with average fiber diameter of 18.5 microns or less. The amendment further provides that HTS 9902.51.16 is for the benefit of persons (including firms, corporations, or other legal entities) who weave worsted wool fabric in the United States. For HTS 9902.51.16, the reduction in duty is limited to 2,000,000 square meters in 2011. On January 22, 2001 the Department published interim regulations establishing procedures for applying for, and determining, such allocations (66 FR 6459, 15 CFR 335). These interim regulations were adopted, without change, as a final rule published on October 24, 2005 (70 FR 61363). On September 8, 2010, the Department published a notice in the Federal Register (75 FR 54598–9) soliciting applications for an allocation of the 2011 tariff rate quotas with a closing date of October 8, 2010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Background: Title V of the Trade and Development Act of 2000 as 
amended by the Trade Act of 2002, the Miscellaneous Trade Act of 2004 
and the Pension Protection Act of 2006, and the Emergency Economic 
Stabilization Act of 2008 creates two tariff rate quotas, providing for 
temporary reductions in the import duties on two categories of worsted 
wool fabrics suitable for use in making suits, suit-type jackets, or 
trousers. For worsted wool fabric with average fiber diameters greater 
than 18.5 microns (Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States 
(HTSUS) heading 9902.51.11), the reduction in duty is limited to 
5,500,000 square meters in 2011. For worsted wool fabric with average 
fiber diameters of 18.5 microns or less (HTSUS heading 9902.51.15), the 
reduction is limited to 5,000,000 square meters in 2011. The 
Miscellaneous Trade Act of 2004 requires the President to ensure that 
such fabrics are fairly allocated to persons (including firms, 
corporations, or other legal entities) who cut and sew men's and boys' 
worsted wool suits and suit-like jackets and trousers in the United 
States and who apply for an allocation based on the amount of such 
suits cut and sewn during the prior calendar year. Presidential 
Proclamation 7383, of December 1, 2000, authorized the Secretary of 
Commerce to allocate the quantity of worsted wool fabric imports under 
the tariff rate quotas.
    The Miscellaneous Trade Act also authorized Commerce to allocate a 
new HTS category, HTS 9902.51.16. This HTS refers to worsted wool 
fabric with average fiber diameter of 18.5 microns or less. The 
amendment further provides that HTS 9902.51.16 is for the benefit of 
persons (including firms, corporations, or other legal entities) who 
weave worsted wool fabric in the United States. For HTS 9902.51.16, the 
reduction in duty is limited to 2,000,000 square meters in 2011.
    On January 22, 2001 the Department published interim regulations 
establishing procedures for applying for, and determining, such 
allocations (66 FR 6459, 15 CFR 335). These interim regulations were 
adopted, without change, as a final rule published on October 24, 2005 
(70 FR 61363). On September 8, 2010, the Department published a notice 
in the Federal Register (75 FR 54598-9) soliciting applications for an 
allocation of the 2011 tariff rate quotas with a closing date of 
October 8, 2010. The Department received timely applications for the 
HTS 9902.51.11 tariff rate quota from 8 firms. The Department received 
timely applications for the HTS 9902.51.15 tariff rate quota from 12 
firms. The Department received timely applications for the HTS 
9902.51.16 tariff rate quota from 1 firm. All applicants were 
determined eligible for an allocation. Most applicants submitted data 
on a business confidential basis. As allocations to firms were 
determined on the basis of this data, the Department considers 
individual firm allocations to be business confidential.
    Firms That Received Allocations: HTS 9902.51.11, fabrics, of 
worsted wool, with average fiber diameter greater than 18.5 micron, 
certified by the importer as suitable for use in making suits, suit-
