`(ii) any fabric or yarn described in clause (ii) of subparagraph (A) was designated as not being available in commercial quantities,

on the basis of fraud, the President is authorized to remove the eligibility or designation (as the case may be) of that fabric or yarn with respect to articles entered after such removal.'.

(1) RELATIONSHIP TO OTHER PREFERENTIAL PROGRAMS- Section 213A(b) of the Caribbean Basin Economic Recovery Act is amended by adding at the end the following:

`(6) OTHER PREFERENTIAL TREATMENT NOT AFFECTED- The duty-free treatment provided under this subsection is in addition to any other preferential treatment under this title.'.

(2) DEFINITIONS- Section 213A(a) of the Caribbean Basin Economic Recovery Act (19 U.S.C.

2703a(a)) is amended by adding at the end the following:

`(3) IMPORTED DIRECTLY FROM HAITI OR THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC- Articles are `imported directly from Haiti or the Dominican Republic' if--

`(A) the articles are shipped directly from Haiti or the Dominican Republic into the United States without passing through the territory of any intermediate country; or

`(B) the articles are shipped from Haiti or the Dominican Republic into the United States through the territory of an intermediate country, and--

`(i) the articles in the shipment do not enter into the commerce of any intermediate country, and the invoices, bills of lading, and other shipping documents specify the United States as the final destination; or

`(ii) the invoices and other documents do not specify the United States as the final destination, but the articles in the shipment--

`(I) remain under the control of the customs authority in the intermediate country;

`(II) do not enter into the commerce of the intermediate country except for the purpose of a sale other than at retail; and

`(III) have not been subjected to operations in the intermediate country other than loading, unloading, or other activities necessary to preserve the articles in good condition.

`(4) KNIT-TO-SHAPE- A good is `knit-to-shape' if 50 percent or more of the exterior surface area of the good is formed by major parts that have been knitted or crocheted directly to the shape used in the good, with no consideration being given to patch pockets, appliques, or the like. Minor cutting, trimming, or sewing of those major parts shall not affect the determination of whether a good is `knit-to-shape.'

`(5) WHOLLY ASSEMBLED- A good is `wholly assembled' in Haiti if all components, of which there must be at least two, pre-existed in essentially the same condition as found in the finished good and were combined to form the finished good in Haiti. Minor attachments and minor embellishments (for example, appliques, beads, spangles, embroidery, and buttons) not appreciably affecting the identity of the good, and minor subassemblies (for example, collars, cuffs, plackets, and pockets), shall not affect the determination of whether a good is `wholly assembled' in Haiti.'.
