Include fabrics in DR-CAFTA, requests Rothschild & Kay
Jan '08
The Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements (CITA) is considering Commercial Availability request 39.2008.01.16.Fabric.Alston&Bird-Rothschild&Co.

Commercial Availability Request Under Section 203(o)(4) of the Dominican Republic-Central America-United States Free Trade Agreement Implementation Act; Certain Wool Blend Coating Fabrics.

On behalf of S. Rothschild & Co Inc (Rothschild) and Herman Kay & Co. (Kay), and pursuant to Section 203(o)(4) of the Dominican Republic-Central America-United States Free Trade Agreement (DR-CAFTA) Implementation Act and the Final Procedures set forth in 72 Fed.Reg. 13256 (March 21, 2007) (Final Procedures), we request that the Committee for the Implementation of Textiles Agreement (CITA) place certain fabrics described herein on the list in Annex 3.25 of DR-CAFTA.

These fabrics are not available in commercial quantities in a timely manner in the territory of any DR-CAFTA party. Should any potential supplier respond with an offer to supply the fabrics in question, we request a thorough assessment of such supplier's manufacturing capacity to determine whether the supplier can fill the requested quantity in a timely manner. We further request open access to information submitted by the supplier for consideration by CITA.

Rothschild and Kay have made every effort to secure the subject fabrics from DRCAFTA producers. The two companies' conclusion about the lack of availability of the subject blended woolen fabrics in the DR-CAFTA territory is based on their many years of experience in the woolen coating industry, and the fact that they have not been actively solicited for business in the subject fabrics by any mill in the CAFTA-DR territory in several years.
