Agency: Office of the United States Trade Representative
In Proclamation 8334 of December 31, 2008, the President modified the rules of origin for certain goods of Australia under the USAFTA. While these modifications were incorporated in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (the ``HTS'') at that time, the proclamation stated that the modifications would be effective on a date that the United States Trade Representative (USTR) announced in the Federal Register. This notice announces that the effective date for the modifications is June 1, 2012. This notice also makes a technical correction to the rule of origin as set out in proclamation 8334.
