The duty rates on these products range from duty–free to 38%. Zone procedures would exempt Kodak from Customs duty payments on products that are reexported. On its shipments to the U.S. market, the company would be able to defer duty payments until merchandise is shipped from the plant and entered for consumption. For certain imported merchandise that is processed into a ‘‘kit’’ with other merchandise, a change in customs classification and consequent lower duty rate may apply (such duty savings are estimated to constitute nine percent of the facilities’ estimated $ 700,000 to $ 1 million in total annual subzone–related savings). Kodak would also be able to avoid duty on foreign inputs which become scrap/ waste, estimated at one percent of FTZ– related savings. Kodak may also realize logistical/procedural and other benefits from subzone status. The request indicates that the savings from FTZ procedures would help improve the international competitiveness of Kodak’s U.S. operations. 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.

Foreign-Trade Zone 50 -- Long Beach, California, Application For 
Subzone, Eastman Kodak Company (X-ray film, Color Paper, Digital Media, 
Inkjet Paper, Entertainment Imaging, and Health Imaging, Whittier and 
Santa Fe Springs, California

    An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the Port of Long Beach (California), grantee of FTZ 50, 
requesting special-purpose subzone status for the facilities of the 
Eastman Kodak Company (Kodak), located in Whittier and Santa Fe 
Springs, California. 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 
September 26, 2005.
    The facilities for which subzone status is proposed are on two 
sites (more than 29 acres total; 299,545 sq. ft. of enclosed space) at 
12100 Rivera Road in Whittier (22.9 acres; 1 building with 216,000 sq. 
ft.) and 10715 Shoemaker Road in Santa Fe Springs (6.3 acres; 1 
building with 83,545 sq. ft.). The facilities are used for the storage 
and distribution, as well as certain processing operations (e.g., 
``kitting''), of imported products related to X-ray film, color paper, 
digital media, inkjet paper, entertainment imaging, and health imaging. 
Kodak indicates that authority to perform its processing operations 
under FTZ procedures may result in changes in tariff classifications 
and duty rates for imported products. The application states that 
``some of the potential items that might be included in kitting 
operations in different combinations'' are cameras (HTSUS 
8525.40.4000), docking station (8471.80.1000), docking station with 
charger (8504.40.9550), printer dock (8471.60.5500), camera bags 
(4202.92.9026), batteries (8506 - 8507), battery chargers 
(8504.40.9550), mini tripods (9006.91.0000), memory cards 
(8473.30.1080), USB cable (8544.41.4000), and power cable - printer 
dock (8544.51.9000). Duty rates on these items range from duty-free to 
17.6% ad valorem.

[[Page 57556]]

    The application also requests authority to include a broad range of 
inputs and final products that the plant may warehouse, distribute, or 
process under FTZ procedures in the future within the categories of X-
ray film, color paper, digital media, inkjet paper, entertainment 
imaging (i.e., motion picture film, consumer film and related 
chemicals), and health imaging (i.e., other health imaging film, 
equipment and related chemicals). (New major activity in these inputs/
products could require review by the FTZ Board.) General HTSUS 
categories of imported products to be admitted to the proposed subzone 
include: 2620, 2710, 2803, 2804, 2806, 2811, 2812, 2815, 2825, 2827,

products range from duty-free to 38%.
    Zone procedures would exempt Kodak from Customs duty payments on 
products that are reexported. On its shipments to the U.S. market, the 
company would be able to defer duty payments until merchandise is 
shipped from the plant and entered for consumption. For certain 
imported merchandise that is processed into a ``kit'' with other 
merchandise, a change in customs classification and consequent lower 
duty rate may apply (such duty savings are estimated to constitute nine 
percent of the facilities' estimated $ 700,000 to $ 1 million in total 
annual subzone-related savings). Kodak would also be able to avoid duty 
on foreign inputs which become scrap/waste, estimated at one percent of 
FTZ-related savings. Kodak may also realize logistical/procedural and 
other benefits from subzone status. The request indicates that the 
savings from FTZ procedures would help improve the international 
competitiveness of Kodak's U.S. operations.
    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
