Department of Commerce Launches New Berry Amendment Website
WASHINGTON – Today Deputy Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Textiles and Apparel, Matt Priest, announced the launch of a new Web site to provide textile and apparel manufacturers in the United States a simpler means of accessing information regarding the Berry Amendment, a statutory requirement that gives preference to domestically produced clothing, fabrics, fibers, yarns and other items by the Department of Defense.
The Berry Amendment has been critical to maintaining the safety and security of our Armed Forces by requiring covered items to be produced in the United States. It is also essential to the viability of the textile and clothing production base in the United States.
