(Food Flavoring Particulates and Mixes); Leavenworth, KS An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) by the Greater Kansas City Foreign Trade Zone, Inc., grantee of FTZ 17, pursuant to § 400.32(b)(1) of the Board’s regulations (15 CFR part 400), on behalf of Cereal Ingredients, Inc. (CII), for authority to manufacture food flavoring particulates and mixes for export under FTZ procedures within FTZ 17. The application was submitted pursuant to the provisions of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a–81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR part 400). It was formally filed on April 26, 2005. The proposed activity would occur at CII’s manufacturing facility located at 4720 South 13th Street within the Leavenworth Area Business Center (Site 5) in Leavenworth, Kansas. The facility (32 employees/8 acres/40,000 sq. ft., plus 40,000 sq. ft. expansion area) is used to produce flavoring particulates and swirl mixes (HTSUS 1901.90) for food products, dairy products and baked goods. The food particulates add flavor, texture and color to baked goods, breakfast cereals, ice cream, and nutritional foods. The activity conducted under FTZ procedures would involve manufacturing of food particulates and swirl mixes using domestic and foreign ingredients for export only. Ingredients purchased from abroad would include: Cane sugar, beet sugar, cocoa, cinnamon soy protein concentrate and isolate, milk protein concentrate and isolate, and textured protein concentrate. None of the foreignorigin sugar and dairy products which are subject to U.S. import quotas would be entered for domestic consumption, and all such products would be reexported from the zone. FTZ procedures would exempt CII from quota requirements and Customs VerDate jul<14>2003 13:10 May 04, 2005 Jkt 205001 duty payments on the foreign ingredients used in the proposed export FTZ production. Duties would be deferred or reduced on foreign production equipment admitted to FTZ 17 until which time it becomes operational. The application indicates that FTZ manufacturing authority for export production would help improve the facility’s international competitiveness. In accordance with the Board’s regulations, a member of the FTZ Staff has been designated examiner to investigate the application and report to the Board. Public comment on the application is invited from interested parties. Submissions (original and three copies) shall be addressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary at the following addresses: 1.

The facilities for which subzone status is proposed are located at three sites (192.1 acres total; 876,453 sq. ft. of enclosed space): Site #1—Samsung Austin Semiconductor facilities (186.1 acres; 764,453 sq. ft.)—located at 12100 Samsung Boulevard in Austin, Texas; Site #2—HISCO facilities (4.1 acres; 62,000 sq. ft.)—located at 8330 Cross Park Drive in Austin; and Site #3— Three Way Inc. facilities (1.9 acres; 50,000 sq. ft.)—located at 4009 Commercial Center Drive in Austin. The facilities (approximately 950 employees) may be used under FTZ procedures for manufacturing, processing, warehousing, and distributing for export purposes only semiconductors and related devices. For Samsung’s current manufacturing, foreign-sourced materials account for approximately 26 percent of finishedproduct value. The application lists the categories of material inputs which may be sourced from abroad, including wafers (HTSUS category 3818.00), chemicals (2809.20, 2826.11, 2846.10, 3814.00) and photo resist (3707.90). Zone procedures would exempt Samsung from Customs duty payments on foreign components used in export production. Samsung would also be able to avoid duty on foreign inputs which become scrap/waste, estimated at no more than five percent of imported inputs. Samsung may also realize logistical/procedural and other benefits from subzone status. All of the abovecited savings from zone procedures could help improve the plant’s international competitiveness.

The Act further provides, however, that the Department may extend the deadline for completion of the preliminary results of a review from 245 to 365 days if it determines that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results within the 245-day period. See also section 351.213(h)(2) of the Department’s regulations. In this administrative review, the Department finds that additional time is required to collect the necessary information to corroborate the statements of two respondents who reported that they did not have any shipments of the subject merchandise during the period of review. Following our normal practice, the Department has requested entry information from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). We have also asked both respondents to answer questions concerning their shipments during the period of review. Recently, we have also requested additional, more detailed information from CBP, which is not immediately available. After we receive the information from the respondents and CBP, the Department will need time to analyze it and reach a decision. For these reasons, the Department has determined that is it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this review within the original time period. Consequently, we are extending the time for the completion of the preliminary results of this review until no later than August 31, 2005, which is 365 days from the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order. The deadline for the final results of this administrative review continues to be 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results.

Foreign-Trade Zone 183--Austin, TX, Application for Subzone, 
Samsung Austin Semiconductor, LP (Semiconductor Memory Devices), 
Austin, TX

    An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the Foreign-Trade Zone of Central Texas, Inc., grantee 
of FTZ 183, requesting special-purpose subzone status with export-only 
manufacturing authority (semiconductor memory devices) for the 
facilities of Samsung Austin Semiconductor, LP (Samsung), located in 
Austin, Texas. The application was submitted pursuant to the Foreign-
Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), and the regulations of 
the Board (15 CFR part 400). It was formally filed on April 28, 2005.
    The facilities for which subzone status is proposed are located at 
three sites (192.1 acres total; 876,453 sq. ft. of enclosed space): 
Site 1--Samsung Austin Semiconductor facilities (186.1 acres; 
764,453 sq. ft.)--located at 12100 Samsung Boulevard in Austin, Texas; 
Site 2--HISCO facilities (4.1 acres; 62,000 sq. ft.)--located 
at 8330 Cross Park Drive in Austin; and Site 3--Three Way Inc. 
facilities (1.9 acres; 50,000 sq. ft.)--located at 4009 Commercial 
Center Drive in Austin.
    The facilities (approximately 950 employees) may be used under FTZ 
procedures for manufacturing, processing, warehousing, and distributing 
for export purposes only semiconductors and related devices. For 
Samsung's current manufacturing, foreign-sourced materials account for 
approximately 26 percent of finished-product value. The application 
lists the categories of material inputs which may be sourced from 
abroad, including wafers (HTSUS category 3818.00), chemicals (2809.20, 
2826.11, 2846.10, 3814.00) and photo resist (3707.90).
    Zone procedures would exempt Samsung from Customs duty payments on 
foreign components used in export production. Samsung would also be 
able to avoid duty on foreign inputs which become scrap/waste, 
estimated at no more than five percent of imported inputs. Samsung may 
also realize logistical/procedural and other benefits from subzone 
status. All of the above-cited savings from zone procedures could help 
improve the plant's international competitiveness.
    In accordance with the Board's regulations, a member of the FTZ 
Staff has been designated examiner to investigate the application and 
report to the Board.
