CITA to meet Columbia Sportswear & Polartec representatives
Feb '08
The Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements (CITA) is considering Commercial Availability request 38.2007.12.26.Fabric.ColumbiaSportswearCo.

CITA has scheduled a meeting with representatives of the interested entities in this proceeding: the requester, Columbia Sportswear Co. ("Columbia") and the responder, Polartec LLC (Polartec). The meeting will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, February 6, 2008, in Room 1410 of the U.S. Department of Commerce in Washington, D.C.

The meeting is open to all interested parties. However, in accordance with section 8(c)(4) of the interim procedures, the purpose of the meeting is to allow the interested entities, Columbia and Polartec, to provide additional evidence to support their claims and information previously submitted to CITA.

Such evidence may include product samples, lab tests, detailed descriptions of production facilities, and comparisons of product performance in the intended end-use of the subject product. See section 8(c)(4)(i). It is important that your representative(s) are knowledgeable about the production and details of the fabrics. Any additional information submitted during this meeting will be part of the public record, unless properly marked as business confidential. See section 3(a)(3).

During the meeting, the Chairman will provide opening remarks; Columbia will provide a brief overview of the evidence and arguments raised in its commercial availability request; Polartec will provide an overview of the evidence and arguments raised in its response submission and then substantiate its belief that it is able to supply the subject product; and then Columbia will present its evidence and arguments substantiating its belief that Polartec cannot supply the subject product.

CITA intends to allow the interested entities to engage in a discussion and ask questions only when necessary to clarify information presented by either entity. At any time, CITA, Columbia, or Polartec may request a closed meeting to discuss business confidential information. CITA will instruct all other parties to temporarily leave the meeting during this time.
