Agreement On Textiles And Clothing

1. Within 60 days of the WTO agreement coming into force, members who maintain restrictions (4) on textile and clothing products (with restrictions other than those under macro-financial assistance and under Article 2), whether or not they comply with the 1994 GATT, in detail. Notifications should contain, if any, information on any justification for the 1994 GATT restrictions, including the 1994 GATT provisions on which they are based. This agreement and all the restrictions are denounced on the first day of the 121st month of the 121st month of the WTO agreement, which fully integrates the textile and clothing sector into the 1994 GATT. There is no renewal of this agreement. (15) This agreement does not prevent a member from removing the restriction maintained under this article, which takes effect at the beginning of a contract year during the transitional period, provided that the exporting member concerned and the TMB are informed at least three months before the elimination comes into force. The pre-notification period can be reduced to 30 days with the consent of the reluctant member. The TMB distributes these communications to all members. In considering the removal of the restrictions in this paragraph, the members concerned take into account the treatment of similar exports from other Member States.

5. Any unilateral measure covered by Article 3 of macro-financial assistance prior to the entry into force date of the WTO agreement may remain in force for the specified period of time, but not more than 12 months, if it has been verified by the textile watchdog established under the AMF (in the sense of this agreement as a TSE). If the TSB has not had the opportunity to review such a unilateral measure, the TMB conducts its review in accordance with the rules and procedures governing the measures covered by Article 3 in the context of macro-financial assistance. Any action that is applied under an AMF agreement under Article 4 prior to the entry into force date of the WTO agreement and which is the subject of litigation that the TSB has not been authorized to review is also reviewed by the TMB in accordance with the AMF rules and procedures applicable to such a review. 2. The measures in Article 6 are taken for certain textile and clothing products and not on the basis of the lines of the HS itself. If there is sufficient evidence at the conclusion of the investigation to show that there has been a circumvention (for example. B if there is evidence for the actual country or place of origin and the circumstances of this circumvention), members agree that appropriate measures should be taken to resolve the problem. These measures may include refusing to import goods or, where goods have entered with due consideration of actual circumstances and country`s or origin`s participation, adapting taxes to restriction levels to take into account the actual country or place of origin.
