Dear Commissioner: This directive amends, but does not cancel, the directive issued to you on November 3, 2003, 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 Brazil and exported during the twelve-month period which began on January 1, 2004 and extends through December 31, 2004.
Effective on March 12, 2004, you are directed to decrease the current limit for Category 363 to 44,916,055 numbers 1, as provided for under the Uruguay Round Agreement on Textiles and Clothing.
