AAMA Announces Agreement Between The US And The EU

  The American Apparel Manufacturers Association (AAMA) Washington D.C., announced that according to the Committee for Implementation of Textile Agreements (CITA), a change in the importing policy of cotton products between the United States and the European Union (EU) has occured.

According to CITA, if certain cotton products are made in the EU from fabric dyed and printed in the EU, regardless of the origin of the fabric, a single visa may be used, to cover multiple shipments, as long as the total quantity of imports entered does not exceed the amount on the visa.

For the products to qualify, they must have undergone two or more finishing operations in the EU. These operations include: bleaching, shrinking, fulling, napping, decating, permanent stiffening, weighting, permanent embossing or moireing.
