No. 8114, 72 FR 13655 (March 22, 2007), and No. 8596, 75 FR 68153 (November 4, 2010). Background: Section 213A(b)(1)(B) of CBERA, as amended (19 U.S.C. 2703a(b)(1)(B)), outlines the requirements for certain apparel articles imported directly from Haiti to qualify for duty-free treatment under a ‘‘valueadded’’ provision. In order to qualify for duty-free treatment, apparel articles must be wholly assembled, or knit-toshape, in Haiti from any combination of fabrics, fabric components, components knit-to-shape, and yarns, as long as the sum of the cost or value of materials produced in Haiti or one or more beneficiary countries, as described in CBERA, as amended, or any combination thereof, plus the direct costs of processing operations performed in Haiti or one or more beneficiary countries, as described in CBERA, as amended, or any combination thereof, is not less than an applicable percentage of the declared customs value of such apparel articles. Pursuant to CBERA, as amended, the applicable percentage for the period December 20, 2021 through December 19, 2022 is 60 percent. For every twelve-month period following the effective date of CBERA, as amended, duty-free treatment under the value-added provision is subject to a quantitative limitation. CBERA, as amended, provides that the quantitative limitation will be recalculated for each subsequent 12-month period. Section 213A(b)(1)(C) of CBERA, as amended (19 U.S.C. 2703a(b)(1)(C)), requires that, for the twelve-month period beginning on December 20, 2021, the quantitative limitation for qualifying apparel imported from Haiti under the valueadded provision will be an amount equivalent to 1.25 percent of the aggregate square meter equivalent of all apparel articles imported into the United States in the most recent 12month period for which data are available. The aggregate square meters equivalent of all apparel articles imported into the United States is derived from the set of Harmonized System lines listed in the Annex to the World Trade Organization Agreement on Textiles and Clothing (‘‘ATC’’), and the conversion factors for units of measure into square meter equivalents used by the United States in implementing the ATC. For purposes of this notice, the most recent 12-month period for which data are available as of December 20, 2021 is the 12-month period ending on October 31, 2021. Therefore, for the one-year period beginning on December 20, 2021 and VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:39 Dec 16, 2021 Jkt 256001 extending through December 19, 2022, the quantity of imports eligible for preferential treatment under the valueadded provision is 367,770,223 square meters equivalent. Apparel articles entered in excess of these quantities will be subject to otherwise applicable tariffs. Paul E. Morris, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Textiles, Consumer Goods, and Materials.
