A notice published in the Federal Register on March 1, 2000 (65 FR 11040) advised the public that CITA had been petitioned to initiate consultations with Mexico and Canada under Section 7(2) of Annex 300-B of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) for the purpose of amending the NAFTA rules of origin to permit the use of non-North American filament viscose rayon yarn classified in HTS headings 5403.10, 5403.31, 5403.32 and 5403.41 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States in NAFTA originating goods. This notice amends, but does not cancel, that notice. The petition has been amended to request consultations on the use of non-North American filament yarn classified in HTS heading 5403.39 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, in addition to the four filament viscose rayon yarn headings listed in that notice.

There will be a 30-day comment period beginning on May 19, 2000 and extending through June 19, 2000. Anyone wishing to comment or provide data or information regarding domestic production or availability of filament yarn classified in HTS headings 5403.10, 5403.31, 5403.32, 5403.39 and 5403.41 is invited to submit 10 copies of such comments or information to D. Michael Hutchinson, Acting Chairman, Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, DC 20230.
