Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 153 / Wednesday, August 10, 2005 / Notices Denver, Colorado, grantee of FTZ 123, requesting special–purpose subzone status with manufacturing authority (X– ray film, color paper, digital media, inkjet paper, and entertainment imaging) for the facilities of the Eastman Kodak Company (Kodak), located in Windsor, Colorado. 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 August 1, 2005. The facilities for which subzone status is proposed are on one site (800 acres total; 3.2 million sq. ft. of enclosed space) located at 9952 Eastman Park Drive in Windsor, Colorado. The facilities (approximately 1650 full- and part–time employees) would be used initially under FTZ procedures for manufacturing, processing, warehousing, and distributing printer cartridges and thermal media, which have duty rates ranging from duty–free to 3.7% ad valorem. For Kodak’s current manufacturing, foreign–sourced materials account for approximately 50 percent of finished–product value. The application lists thermal media (HTSUS category 3702.44) and film base (3920.62) as the primary material inputs which may be sourced from abroad initially, with duty rates ranging from 3.7% to 4.2%. The application also requests authority to include a broad range of inputs and final products that the plant may produce under FTZ procedures in the future within the categories of X–ray film, color paper, digital media, inkjet paper, and entertainment imaging (i.e., motion picture film, consumer film and related chemicals). (New major activity in these inputs/products could require review by the FTZ Board.) General HTSUS categories of inputs include: 2620, 2710, 2803, 2804, 2806, 2811, 2812, 2815, 2825, 2827, 2832, 2833, 2836, 2838, 2842, 2843, 2846, 2851, 2901, 2902, 2903, 2904, 2906, 2907, 2908, 2909, 2911, 2914, 2915, 2916, 2917, 2918, 2920, 2921, 2922, 2924, 2925, 2926, 2928, 2930, 2931, 2933, 2934, 2935, 2942, 3004, 3402, 3503, 3507, 3701, 3702, 3703, 3704, 3705, 3706, 3707, 3824, 3901, 3903, 3905, 3906, 3907, 3910, 3912, 3917, 3919, 3920, 3921, 3923, 3924, 3926, 4008, 4009, 4010, 4016, 4017, 4202 (4202.12.6000, 4202.12.8030, 4202.91.0090, 4202.92.9026, 4202.92.9036, 4202.92.9060), 4203, 4415, 4504, 4703, 4802, 4805, 4808, 4811, 4818, 4819, 4820, 4821, 4823, 4901, 4902, 4905, 4906, 4908, 4909, 4910, 4911, 5906, 6804, 6909, 7003, 7004, 7005, 7006, 7007, 7008, 7013, 7014, 7020, 7106, 7108, 7112, 7412, VerDate jul<14>2003 15:02 Aug 09, 2005 Jkt 205001 7419, 7606, 7607, 7609, 7616, 8101, 8108, 8302, 8306, 8308, 8309, 8405, 8412, 8413, 8414, 8415, 8418, 8419, 8420, 8421, 8422, 8423, 8428, 8431, 8439, 8441, 8443, 8466, 8467, 8470, 8471, 8472, 8473, 8476, 8477, 8479, 8480, 8481, 8485, 8501, 8503, 8504, 8505, 8506, 8507, 8511, 8512, 8513, 8514, 8515, 8516, 8518, 8521, 8523, 8524, 8525, 8528, 8529, 8531, 8532, 8533, 8534, 8535, 8536, 8537, 8538, 8539, 8540, 8541, 8542, 8543, 8544, 8545, 8546, 8547, 9001, 9002, 9005, 9006, 9007, 9008, 9009, 9010, 9011, 9013, 9015, 9016, 9017, 9018, 9022, 9023, 9024, 9025, 9026, 9027, 9028, 9029, 9030, 9031, 9032, 9033, 9106, 9402, 9405, 9612, and 9705.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On July 1, 2004, the Department published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of this order (69 FR 39903). On July 30, 2004, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b)(1), FMC requested that the Department conduct an administrative review of Shanghai AJ Import and Export Corporation (Shanghai AJ). On September 22, 2004, the Department published a notice of initiation of this administrative review (69 FR 56745). On March 25, 2005, the Department extended the due date for the preliminary results of this review to August 1, 2005 (70 FR 15293). On October 13, 2004, we issued an antidumping questionnaire to Shanghai AJ and its producer, Degussa–AJ (Shanghai) Initiators Co., Ltd. (Degussa– AJ), collectively Shanghai AJ/Degussa– AJ. Shanghai AJ/Degussa–AJ submitted timely responses to the questionnaire in November and December 2004. We issued supplemental questionnaires in March, April, May, and June 2005, and received timely responses to each from Shanghai AJ/Degussa–AJ. On June 10, 2005, FMC submitted publicly available information for consideration in valuing the factors of production. Shanghai AJ/Degussa–AJ submitted information for this purpose on June 20 and 27, 2005. FMC submitted rebuttal comments on June 29 and July 8, 2005. Scope of the Order The products covered by this review are persulfates, including ammonium, potassium, and sodium persulfates. The chemical formula for these persulfates are, respectively, (NH4)2S2O8, K2S2O8, and Na2S2O8. Potassium persulfates are currently classifiable under subheading 2833.40.10 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Sodium persulfates are classifiable under HTSUS subheading 2833.40.20. Ammonium and other persulfates are classifiable under HTSUS subheadings 2833.40.50 and 2833.40.60. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of this order is dispositive.

(Docket 36-2005)


Foreign-Trade Zone 141 Rochester, New York, Expansion of 
Manufacturing Authority Subzone 141A, Eastman Kodak Company, (Printer 
Cartridges and Thermal Media)

    An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the

[[Page 46476]]

    Board) by Monroe County, New York, grantee of FTZ 141, to expand 
the scope of manufacturing authority for the Eastman Kodak Company 
(Kodak) under zone procedures within Subzone 141A, at the Kodak plant 
located at sites in the Rochester, New York area. 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 August 1, 2005.
    Subzone 141A was approved by the Board in 1988 and is currently 
comprised of four sites in the Rochester, New York area. Authority was 
granted for the manufacture of: photographic film, paper and chemicals; 
photographic/video cameras, equipment and supplies; copiers, office 
machines, and computer equipment; medical instruments and equipment; 
and life science chemicals (Board Order 401, 53 FR 52456, 12/28/1988).
    Kodak is now proposing to expand the scope of manufacturing 
activity conducted under zone procedures at Subzone 141A to include 
additional finished products (printer cartridges and thermal media). 
These finished products fall into categories which enter the United 
States at duty rates ranging from duty-free to 3.7% ad valorem. Kodak's 
application indicates that foreign-sourced materials under the proposed 
expanded scope (thermal media and film base HTSUS categories 3702.44 
and 3920.62, respectively) have duty rates ranging from 3.7% to 4.2%.
    Expanded subzone manufacturing authority would exempt Kodak from 
Customs duty payments on foreign components when used in export 
production of the new products. On its domestic sales, Kodak would be 
able to choose the lower duty rate that applies to the new finished 
products for foreign components, when applicable. Kodak would also be 
able to avoid duty on foreign inputs which become scrap/waste, 
estimated at five percent of FTZ-related savings. Kodak may also 
realize logistical/procedural and other benefits related to the 
proposed expanded scope of manufacturing. 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.
    Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions 
(original and 3 copies) shall be addressed to the Board's Executive 
Secretary at one of the following addresses:
1. Submissions via Express/Package Delivery Services: Foreign-Trade-
Zones Board, U.S. Department of Commerce, Franklin Court Building--

U.S. Department of Commerce, FCB--Suite 4100W, 1401 Constitution Ave. 
NW., Washington, DC 20230.
    The closing period for their receipt is October 11, 2005. Rebuttal 
comments in response to material submitted during the foregoing period 
may be submitted during the subsequent 15-day period to October 24, 
2005.
