USITC LAUNCHES NEW INVESTIGATIONS ON POSSIBLE MODIFICATIONS TO THE NAFTA RULES OF ORIGIN

August 18, 2009 at 1:46 pm

The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) is seeking input for two newly initiated investigations concerning proposed modifications of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) rules of origin.

The investigations, Certain Textile Articles Containing Rayon and Other Manmade Fibers: Effect of Modifications of NAFTA Rules of Origin for Goods of Canada and Mexico, and Certain Textile Articles Containing Acrylic and Modacrylic Fibers: Effect of Modifications of NAFTA Rules of Origin for Goods of Canada, result from a request by the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) in a letter received on July 30, 2009.

As requested, the USITC, an independent, nonpartisan, factfinding federal agency, will provide advice on the probable effect of proposed NAFTA rules of origin modifications on U.S. trade and on domestic producers of the affected yarns and fabrics. Details on the products covered by the investigation can be obtained from the attachment to the request letter, which can be found on the USITC Internet site at http://www.usitc.gov/research_and_analysis/ongoing/certain_textile_nafta_roo.pdf.

The USITC expects to submit its advice to the USTR by November 30, 2009.

Further information on the scope of these investigations, the proposed rules of origin modifications, and the procedures for written submissions is available in the USITC’s notices of investigation, dated August 17, 2009, which can be downloaded from the USITC Internet site (www.usitc.gov) or by contacting the Secretary at the above address.
