(Docket 48-2005)


Foreign-Trade Zone 57 Charlotte, NC, Application for 
Subzone(Thermal Media and Digital Printer Cartridges and Components), 
Concord, North Carolina

    An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the North Carolina Department of Commerce, grantee of 
FTZ 57, requesting special-purpose subzone status for the thermal media 
and digital printer cartridge and components manufacturing facility of 
DNP IMS America Corporation (DNP), a subsidiary of Dai Nippon Printing 
Company, Ltd., in Concord, North Carolina. 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 September 30, 2005.
    The DNP facility (1 building, 103,550 sq. ft. on 14.7 acres) is 
located at 4524 Enterprise Drive, NW, in the International Business 
Park, Concord (Cabarrus County), North Carolina. The DNP plant (115 
employees) would be used initially under FTZ procedures for slitting of 
master rolls of thermal transfer ribbon (TTR) and sublimation transfer 
ribbon (STR) and the assembly of digital printer cartridges and 
components, and warehousing and distribution of these products.
    For DNP's current manufacturing, foreign-sourced materials account 
for some 70 to 96 percent of finished product value. The application 
lists STR and TTR master rolls, finished STR ribbon, photographic paper 
and STR printer components (HTSUS categories 3702.39, 3702.42, 3702.44, 
3703.20.60 and 8473.30 - duty-free to 3.7%) as the primary material 
inputs which may be sourced from abroad.
    Zone procedures would exempt DNP from Customs duty payments on 
foreign materials used in export production. Some eight percent of the 
plant's shipments are currently exported. On domestic sales, the 
company would be able to choose the lower duty rate that applies to the 
finished printer cartridges (HTSUS 8473.30, duty-free), rather than the 
duty rates that would otherwise apply to its foreign-sourced inputs 
noted above. On domestic sales of its other foreign-origin items, DNP 
would be able to defer duty until the products are shipped from its 
facility. The company would also be able to transfer STR products to 
other FTZs under zone procedures. Additionally, DNP would be able to 
avoid duty on foreign inputs which become scrap/waste, estimated at 9% 
of FTZ-related savings. It may also realize logistical/procedural and 
other benefits from subzone status. The application indicates that the 
savings from zone procedures will 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:
