TRADE PREFERENCE PROGRAMS
A Trade Preference Program is legislated by Congress and provides duty-free treatment to certain apparel products from designated beneficiary countries that meet the program’s rules. Generally these programs allow duty-free entry of apparel into the U.S. if the apparel is cut and assembled in a beneficiary country using U.S. fabrics made of U.S. yarns.
