Request for Public Comment on a Commercial Availability Request under the U.S.-Bahrain Free Trade Agreement

AGENCY: Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements (CITA).

ACTION: Request for public comments concerning a request for modification of the U.S.-Bahrain Free Trade Agreement(USBFTA) rules of origin for certain compacted, single, ring spun cotton yarns.

SUMMARY: On April 1, 2009, the Government of the United States received a request from the Government of Bahrain for consultations under Article 3.2.3 of the USBFTA. Bahrain is seeking agreement to revise the rules of origin for certain bedding, curtains, bed covers, and pillow covers to address availability of supply of certain compacted ring spun cotton yarns in the territories of the Parties. On July 7, 2009, the United States received additional information from Bahrain to address certain issues with respect to the April 1 request, including identification that the subject request is for certain compacted, single, ring spun cotton yarns classified in subheadings 5205.27.0020 and 5205.28.0020 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). The President may proclaim a modification to the USBFTA rules of origin for textile and apparel products after reaching an agreement with the Government of Bahrain on the modification. CITA hereby solicits public comments on this request, in particular with regard to whether certain compacted, single, ring spun cotton yarns of HTSUS 5205.27.0020 and 5205.28.0020 can be supplied by the domestic industry in commercial quantities in a timely
manner. Comments must be submitted by August 20, 2009 to the Chairman, Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements, Room 3001, United States Department of Commerce, Washington, DC 20230.

Background
Under the USBFTA, the parties are required to progressively eliminate customs duties on originating goods. See Article 2.3.2. The USBFTA provides that, after consultations, the parties may agree to revise the rules of origin for textile and apparel products to address issues of availability of supply of fibers,yarns, or fabrics in the free trade area. See Article 3.2.3 of the USBFTA. In the consultations, each party must consider data presented by the other party showing substantial production of the good. Substantial production has been shown if domestic producers are capable of supplying commercial quantities of the good in a timely manner.
