The European Apparel and Textile Confederation ("EURATEX"), last month, issued a position paper on EU-USA Trade Relations, stating "strong support" for a free trade agreement between the U.S. and the E.U." The EURATEX paper contains some specific policy positions that are contrary to the interest of U.S. textile manufacturers, specifically, EURATEX is critical of U.S. country of origin labeling requirements and the U.S. Wool Products Labeling Act. EURATEX also calls for elimination of the Berry Amendment and Kissell Amendment requirements of domestic sourcing of certain Department of Defense and Department of Homeland Security textile and clothing acquisitions.
