The Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS) has been amended, and certain HTS classification numbers are being changed for products in part-Categories 438-W and 438-O. The Uruguay Round Agreement on Textiles and Clothing and the U.S.-Malaysia export visa arrangement both utilize the HTS and include such goods within their scope. To facilitate implementation of these agreements, CITA is directing the Commissioner of Customs to amend monitoring and import control directives and visa and certification requirement directives for Malaysia to account for this change, amending part-Categories 438-W and 438-O.
In the letter published below, the Chairman of CITA directs the Commissioner of Customs to amend monitoring, import control, and visa and certification requirements with respect to part-Categories 438-W and 438-O.Start Signature
