This chapter shows how trade regulations and the global and regional institutions within which they are framed have distinctively shaped the textile and clothing industry for almost fifty years. It reviews the quantitative restrictions imposed by the Multi-Fibre Arrangements (MFA) and the Agreement on Textiles and Clothing (ATC) until their expiry on 31 December 2004; the principal agreements on preferential access that govern tariff rates between the US or the EU on the one hand and their T/C trading partners on the other; and the highly complex pattern of rules of origin that shape the flow of component parts along the various stages of the clothing value chain.

Keywords:   clothing industry, trade regulations, quotas, tariffs, preferential trade agreements, rules of origin
