Country of Origin of Textile and Apparel Products; Correction
Document Number: 2011-6945
Type: Rule
Date: 2011-03-24
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Department of the Treasury
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) published in the Federal Register of March 17, 2011, a document which adopted as a final rule, with some changes, interim amendments to the CBP regulations to revise, update, and consolidate the regulatory provisions relating to the country of origin of textile and apparel products. The final rule document contained two errors in the Background portion of the document. The first error concerns an inadvertent reference to imported ``antique Persian carpets'' in an example prepared by CBP. Because carpets of Iranian-origin are currently prohibited from importation into the United States, the example should not have referenced Persian antique carpets. The example is changed to reflect a non-prohibited articlea Turkish antique carpet. The second error consists of an outdated Internet address that was provided by CBP relating to certain instructions for the completion of CBP Form 7501. This document corrects these two errors.

Document Number: 2011-6253
Type: Rule
Date: 2011-03-17
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Department of the Treasury
This document adopts as a final rule, with some changes, interim amendments to title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations (``CFR'') to revise, update, and consolidate the Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') regulations relating to the country of origin of textile and apparel products. The regulatory amendments adopted as a final rule in this document reflect changes brought about, in part, by the expiration on January 1, 2005, of the Agreement on Textiles and Clothing (``ATC'') and the resulting elimination of quotas on the entry of textile and apparel products from World Trade Organization (``WTO'') members. The primary regulatory change consists of the elimination of the requirement that a textile declaration be submitted for all importations of textile and apparel products. In addition, to improve the quality of reporting of the identity of the manufacturer of imported textile and apparel products, this document adopts as a final rule an amendment requiring importers to identify the manufacturer of such products through a manufacturer identification code (``MID'').
