End Authority

On June 26, 2001, in response to a request from the Government of Turkey, CITA published an adjusted limit for Category 350 from Turkey. As a result of administrative error, the adjusted limit was incorrect, and the correct limit was published on September 10, 2001. During the interim period, the Government of Turkey issued visas, and exporters and importer engaged in commercial transactions, in reliance on the limit published on June 26. Since June 26, CITA has published other directives which provided additional quota to Turkey in this category. As parties relied on the amount published on June 26, CITA is instructing U.S. Customs to reduce the charges applied to the limit established in the directive dated October 27, 2000, for goods exported in 2001, for Category 350 by 9,533 dozens, the amount that CITA has determined would permit Turkey to ship the full amount published on June 26.
