(Docket 47-2005)


Foreign-Trade Zone 26 Atlanta, Georgia, Application For Subzone, 
Eastman Kodak Company, (X-ray film, Color Paper, Digital Media, Inkjet 
Paper, Entertainment Imaging, and Health Imaging), Lawrenceville, 
Georgia

    An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by Georgia Foreign-Trade Zone, Inc., grantee of FTZ 26, 
requesting special-purpose subzone status for the facility of the 
Eastman Kodak Company (Kodak), located in Lawrenceville, Georgia. 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 facility for which subzone status is proposed (17.35 acres; one 
building with 249,550 sq. ft. of enclosed space) is located at 2225 
Cedars Road in Lawrenceville. The facility is used for the storage and 
distribution, as well as certain processing operations (e.g., 
``kitting''), of imported products related

[[Page 57557]]

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.
    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,

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. 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 five 
percent of the facility's estimated $ 200,000 to $ 350,000 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 
(original and 3 copies) shall be addressed to the Board's Executive 
Secretary at one of the following addresses:
