Applicant for Medical Bandage FTZ Re-Files, Asserts AFMA, NCTO, USIFI "Have no understanding of quality requirements

Today the Foreign Trade Zone Board reopened the comment period, through July 9, 2014, for the Foreign Trade Zone application from ASO, LLC, relating to certain woven fabrics of cotton, polyester, and cotton/polyester blend used in the production of medical bandages. The Board's action is in response to ASO's May 14, 2014, submission, attacking the credibility of joint comments in opposition submitted by the American Fiber Manufacturers Association, National Council of Textile Organizations, and the United States Industrial Fabrics Institute. The ASO submission also questions the ability of the sole U.S. manufacturer to respond to actually produce the fabrics ASO needs.
