Authority:
Executive Order 11651 of March 3, 1972, as amended; section 204 of the Agricultural Act of 1956, as amended (7 U.S.C. 1854).


In anticipation of the passage of the legislation implementing the World Trade Organization Agreement on Textiles and Clothing (Agreement), and pursuant to Article 2, Paragraph 6 of the Agreement, CITA has determined that on the day the Agreement enters into force, the following textile and apparel products in the Annex to the Agreement will be integrated into the GATT 1994 in the first stage. Therefore, all quantitative restraints on any of these products will be eliminated and no new limits will be applied except in accordance with the rules and procedures set out in the Agreement Establishing the World Trade Organization.

The products set out below account for 16% of the total volume of U.S. 1990 imports of the products in the Annex. As specified in the Agreement, this list includes products from each of the four groups: tops and yarns, fabrics, made-up textile products, and clothing.
