unfamiliar makers’ enrollment arrangement by letter. The letter expresses that the Department isn’t

requiring enrollment of each plant of homegrown makers however just to safeguard that each

unfamiliar maker is independently enrolled. In a phone discussion with The Toy

Affiliation General Counsel, the boss likewise showed that a homegrown maker who has item

fabricated abroad for it and who supplies plans or materials to the unfamiliar source likewise need

not register the unfamiliar plant.

merchant in its own name is everything necessary under the Pennsylvania resolution and its guidelines and

that requiring numerous unfamiliar plant enlistments for providers of an enrolled U.S.A. producer or

imported establishes a widening and distortion of the guidelines in a way which is

conflicting with earlier understanding and practices of the Department.
