Posted by Kelsay Calvaruso on 3/8/23 5:00 PM

On March 7, 2023, in a Federal Register Notice (FRN), the Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements (CITA) issued a request for comments on modifying the U.S.-Chile Free Trade Agreement rules of origin to allow for “the use of non-U.S. or Chilean filament yarn of viscose rayon classified in subheadings 5403.10, 5403.31, 5403.32, and 5403.41” of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) for woven fabrics of artificial filament yarns in subheadings 5408.22-5408.23. This change was requested by the Government of Chile in November 2022.

Comments should pertain to whether “the subject yarns can be supplied by the domestic industry in commercial quantities in a timely manner” and are due by April 6, 2023.

Details on comment submission can be found in the FRN here:
