Agency: Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements, Agencies and Commissions
The Committee has resumed consideration of twelve requests for safeguard action that were received from certain textile and apparel trade associations in October, November and December, 2004. The Requestors asked the Committee to limit imports from China of twelve textile and apparel products in accordance with the textile and apparel safeguard provision in the Report of the Working Party on the Accession of China to the World Trade Organization (the Accession Agreement). Although the Committee decided to consider these requests, and solicited public comments, the Court of International Trade preliminarily enjoined CITA from taking any further action on the requests on December 30, 2004. The Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit stayed the injunction on April 27, 2005. The Committee is not soliciting any further public comment with respect to those requests where the public comment period closed before the court issued its injunction. With respect to the remaining requests, the Committee hereby solicits public comments during a period beginning the day following publication of this notice in the Federal Register and encompassing the number of days remaining in the original comment period when the court issued its injunction.
