FTZ procedures would exempt Revlon from Customs duty payments on the foreign components used in export production. Some 22 percent of the plant’s shipments are exported. On its domestic sales, Revlon would be able to choose the duty rates during Customs entry procedures that apply to cosmetic and personal care products (duty-free to 4.9%) for the foreign inputs noted above. The request indicates that the savings from FTZ procedures would help improve the plant’s international competitiveness. In accordance with the Board’s regulations, a member of the FTZ staff has been appointed examiner to investigate the application and report to the Board.
