De Minimis

  1. A textile or apparel good classified in Chapters 50 through 60 or heading 96.19 of the Harmonized System that contains non-originating materials that do not satisfy the applicable change in tariff classification requirement specified in Annex 4-B (Product-Specific Rules of Origin), shall nonetheless be considered to be an originating good if the total weight of all those materials is not more than 10 percent of the total weight of the good, of which the total weight of elastomeric content may not exceed 7 percent, and the good meets all the other applicable requirements of this Chapter and Chapters 4 and 5 (Rules of Origin and Origin Procedures).
  1. A textile or apparel good classified in Chapters 61 through 63 of the Harmonized System that contains non-originating fibers or yarns in the component of the good that determines the tariff classification of the good that do not satisfy the applicable change in tariff classification set out in Annex 4-B (Product-Specific Rules of Origin), shall nonetheless be considered to be an originating good if the total weight of all those fibers or yarns is not more than 10 percent of the total weight of that component, of which the total weight of elastomeric content may not exceed 7 percent, and the good meets all the other applicable requirements of this Chapter and Chapters 4 and 5 (Rules of Origin and Origin Procedures).

Treatment of Sets

  1. Notwithstanding the product-specific rules of origin set out in Annex 4-B (Product-Specific Rules of Origin), textile and apparel goods put up in sets for retail sale, classified as a result of the application of Rule 3 of the General Rules for the Interpretation of the Harmonized System, shall not be regarded as originating goods unless each of the goods in the set is an originating good or the total value of the non-originating goods in the set does not exceed 10 percent of the value of the set.
  1. For the purposes of paragraph 4:

(a)        the value of non-originating goods in the set shall be calculated in the same manner as the value of non-originating materials in Chapters 4 (Rules of Origin); and

(b)        the value of the set shall be calculated in the same manner as the value of the good in Chapter 4 (Rules of Origin).

Article 6.2:  Handmade, Traditional Folkloric, or Indigenous Handicraft Goods

Annex 6-A sets out special provisions applicable to certain textile and apparel goods.

Article 6.4:  Review and Revision of Rules of Origin

  1. On request of a Party, the Parties shall consult to consider whether particular goods should be subject to different rules of origin to address issues of availability of supply of fibers, yarns or fabrics in the free trade area.
  1. In the consultations, each Party shall consider the data presented by a Party showing substantial production in its territory of the particular good. The consulting Parties shall consider that substantial production has been shown if that Party demonstrates that its domestic producers are capable of supplying commercial quantities of the good in a timely manner. With a view to concluding consultations without delay, the Parties shall endeavor to make an initial assessment of the evidence available regarding whether the fiber, yarn, or fabric is commercially available in the free trade area promptly and to the extent possible within 90 days.
  1. If, based on the initial assessment, the Parties agree that the fiber, yarn, or fabric is not commercially available, the Parties shall endeavor to reach agreement promptly on a corresponding proposed rule change and, as appropriate, proceed with their respective domestic procedures for implementation. The Parties shall endeavor to conclude consultations within 60 days of the initial assessment. An agreement between the Parties shall supersede any prior rule of origin for such good when approved by each Party in accordance with any necessary legal procedures of each Party.

Article 6.5:  Cooperation

  1. The Parties shall cooperate, through information sharing and other activities as provided for in Articles 7.26 through 7.29, on matters related to trade in textile and apparel goods.

  1. An importing Party may request a site visit under this article from an exporter or producer of textile or apparel goods to verify whether:

(a)       a  textile  or  apparel  good  qualifies  for  preferential  tariff  treatment  under  this

Agreement; or

(b)        customs offenses with regard to a textile or apparel good are occurring or have occurred.

  1. During a site visit under paragraph 2, an importing Party may request access to:

(a)       records and facilities relevant to the claim for preferential tariff treatment; or

(b)       records and facilities relevant to the customs offences being verified.

  1. If an importing Party seeks to conduct a site visit under paragraph 2, it shall provide the host Party not later than 20 days prior to the date of the first visit to an exporter or producer, with:

(a)       the proposed dates,

(b)        the  number  and  general  location  of  exporters and  producers  to  be  visited  in appropriate detail to allow the efficient and effective application of the provisions of paragraphs 7(a) and 7(b), but does not need to specify the names of the exporters or producers to be visited;

(c)       whether assistance by the host Party will be requested and what type;

(d)       the suspected customs offenses to be verified under paragraph 2(b), including relevant factual information available at the time of the notification related to the specific offenses, which may include historical information; and

1    For the purposes of this Article, the information collected in accordance with this Article shall be used for the purpose of ensuring the effective implementation of this Chapter. A Party shall not use these procedures to collect information for other purposes.

  1. If an importing Party seeks to conduct a site visit under paragraph 2, and does not provide the names of the exporters or producers according to paragraph 4, it shall provide the host Party with a list of the names and addresses of the exporters or producers it proposes to visit, in a timely manner, prior to the date of the first visit to an exporter or producer under paragraph 2, to facilitate coordination, logistical support, and scheduling of the site visit.
  1. The host Party shall promptly acknowledge receipt of the notification of a proposed site visit under paragraph 2, and may request information from the importing Party to facilitate planning of the site visit, such as logistical arrangements or provision of requested assistance.
  1. If an importing Party seeks to conduct a site visit under paragraph 2:

(a)       officials of the customs administration of the host Party may accompany the officials of the importing Party during the site visit;

(b)        officials of the customs administration of the host Party may, in accordance with its laws and regulations, on request of the importing Party or on its own initiative, assist the officials of the importing Party during the site visit and provide, to the extent practicable, information relevant to conduct the site visit;

(c)       the importing and the host Party shall limit communication regarding the site visit to relevant government officials and shall not inform any person outside the government of the host Party in advance of a site visit or provide any other verification or any other information not publicly available the disclosure of which could undermine the effectiveness of the action;

(d)       the importing Party shall request permission from the exporter, producer, or a person having capacity to consent on behalf of the exporter or producer, either prior to the site visit if this would not undermine the effectiveness of the site visit or at the time of the site visit, to access the relevant records or facilities; and

(e)        if the exporter, producer or a person having the capacity to consent on behalf of the exporter or producer, of textile or apparel goods denies permission or access to the records or facilities, the site visit will not occur.  If the exporter, producer, or a person having the capacity to consent on behalf of the exporter or producer is not able to receive the importing Party to carry out the site visit, the site visit will be conducted on the following working day unless: i) the importing Party agrees otherwise; or ii) the exporter, producer, or person having the capacity to consent on behalf of the exporter or producer, substantiates a valid reason acceptable to the importing Party that the site visit cannot occur at that time.   If the exporter, producer, or person having the capacity to consent on behalf of the exporter or producer, does not have a valid reason acceptable to the importing Party that the site visit cannot take place on the following working day, the importing Party may

deem permission for the site visit or access to the records or facilities to be denied. The importing Party shall give consideration to any reasonable alternative proposed dates, taking into account the availability of relevant employees or facilities of the person visited.

  1. On completion of a site visit under paragraph 2, the importing Party shall:

(c)        on receiving a written request of the exporter or producer, provide that person with a written report of the results of the site visit as it pertains to that exporter or producer, including any findings.   This may be a report prepared under subparagraph (b), with appropriate changes. The importing Party shall inform the exporter or producer of the entitlement to request this report.

  1. If an importing Party conducts a site visit under this Article and, as a result, intends to deny preferential tariff treatment to a textile or apparel good, it shall, prior to issuing a written determination, inform the importer and any exporter or producer that provided information directly to the importing Party, of the preliminary results of the verification and provide those persons with a notice of intent to deny that includes when the denial would be effective and a period of at least

30 days to submit additional information, including documents, to support the claim for preferential tariff treatment.

  1. The importing Party shall not reject a claim for preferential tariff treatment on the sole grounds that the host Party does not provide the requested assistance or information under this Article.
  1. If verifications of identical textile or apparel goods by an importing Party indicate a pattern of conduct by an exporter or producer of false or unsupported representations that a textile or apparel good imported into its territory qualifies for preferential tariff treatment, the importing Party may withhold preferential tariff treatment for identical textile or apparel goods imported, exported, or produced by that person until it is demonstrated to the importing Party that those identical textile or apparel goods qualify for preferential tariff treatment. For the purposes of this paragraph, “identical textile or apparel goods” means textile or apparel goods that are the same in all respects,  including  physical  characteristics,  quality  and  reputation,  irrespective  of  minor differences in appearance that are not relevant to a determination of origin of those goods.

(a)       for a reason listed in Article 5.11 (Determination of Origin);

(b)        if,  pursuant  to  a  site  visit  under  Article  6.6.2,  it  has  not  received  sufficient information to determine that the textile or apparel good qualifies for preferential tariff treatment; or

(c)       if, pursuant to a site visit under Article 6.6.2, access or permission for the site visit is denied, the importing Party is prevented from completing the site visit, or the exporter or producer, or a person having the capacity to consent on behalf of the exporter or producer, does not provide access to the relevant records or facilities during a site visit.

ANNEX 6-A

SPECIAL PROVISIONS

Definitions

average yarn number, means the average yarn number of the yarns contained therein. In computing the average yarn number, the length of the yarn is considered to be equal to the distance covered by it in the fabric, with all clipped yarn being measured as if continuous and with the count being taken of the total single yarns in the fabric including the single yarns in any multiple (folded) or cabled yarns. The weight shall be taken after any excessive sizing is removed by boiling or other suitable process. Any one of the following formulas can be used to determine the average yarn number:

  • N = BYT / 1,000
  • N = 100T / Z’
  • N = BT / Z
  • N = ST / 10

when:

  • N is the average yarn number,
  • B is the breadth (width) of the fabric in centimeters,
  • Y is the meters (linear) of the fabric per kilogram,
  • T is the total single yarns per square centimeter,
  • S is the square meters of fabric per kilogram,
  • Z is the grams per linear meter of fabric, and
  • Z’ is the grams per square meter of fabric.
  • Fractions in the resulting “average yarn number” shall be disregarded.
