In Brief: CITA Says No ... Grand Design ... Bidding for Selfridges ...

The Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements published its denial of a short supply request by the Dow Chemical Co.

CITA SAYS NO: The Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements on Friday published its denial of a short supply request by the Dow Chemical Co. under the African Growth & Opportunity Act and the Caribbean Basin Trade Partnership Act.

The preferential import law largely requires U.S. textiles to be used to receive duty-free status and also requires all dyeing, printing and finishing of fabrics to be carried out in the U.S.

But the law allows garments made of non-U.S. materials to qualify for duty-free status if they are not commercially available in the U.S. CITA denied a request for the use of non-U.S. lastol elastic yarn in apparel from such yarns or from U.S.-formed fabric containing the yarns.
