SUMMARY:

On August 3, 2004, the Chairman of CITA received four petitions from Sharretts, Paley, Carter & Blauvelt, P.C., on behalf of Fishman & Tobin, alleging that certain woven fabrics, of certain specifications, cannot be supplied by the domestic industry in commercial quantities in a timely manner. The petitions requested that apparel articles of such fabrics assembled in one or more CBTPA beneficiary countries be eligible for preferential treatment under the CBTPA. On August 9, 2004, CITA published a notice in the Federal Register (69 FR 48224) soliciting public comments on these petitions, in particular with regard to whether these fabrics can be supplied by the domestic industry in commercial quantities in a timely manner.

On August 24, 2004, CITA received letter from Sharretts, Paley, Carter & Blauvelt, P.C. withdrawing one of the petitions. The fabric covered by the petition that is being withdrawn was identified as Fabric 2 in the Federal Register notice. The specifications of this fabric are repeated below.
