HOPE II calls for the President to transmit an annual report to Congress by June 18 regarding the establishment and operation of the Labor Ombudsperson’s Office and implementation of the TAICNAR program. The President has delegated the production and transmittal of this report to the United States Trade Representative (USTR). This report is to include an explanation of the efforts of the Government of Haiti, the President, and the International Labor Organization (ILO) with respect to the Labor Ombudsperson’s Office and the TAICNAR program; a summary of reports prepared by the ILO, as the operator of the TAICNAR program, during the preceding one-year period; and, on a biennial basis, a list of the producers that the President has identified as failing to comply with core labor standards and with the labor laws of Haiti that directly relate to and are consistent with core labor standards. 19 U.S.C. § 2703a(e)(5)(B).
