Department of the Treasury, Washington, DC 20229.
Dear Commissioner: This directive amends, but does not cancel, the directive issued to you on November 9, 1999, by the Chairman, Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements. That directive concerns imports of certain cotton, wool and man-made fiber textile products, produced or manufactured in the Republic of Turkey and exported during the twelve-month period which began on January 1, 2000 and extends through December 31, 2000.
Effective on July 21, 2000, you are directed to adjust the current limits for the following categories, as provided for under the Uruguay Round Agreement on Textiles and Clothing:
|Category||Adjusted limit 1|
|Limits not in a group|
|369-S 2||2,215,493 kilograms.|
|1 The limits have not been adjusted to account for any imports exported after December 31, 1999.|
|2 Category 369-S: only HTS number 6307.10.2005.|
The Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements has determined that these actions fall within the foreign affairs exception of the rulemaking provisions of 5 U.S.C. 553(a)(1).

Acting Chairman, Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements.End Supplemental Information
