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 October 17, 2005. The BAC plant (32 acres/191,000 sq. ft.) is located at 1255 Howell Road in Duncan (Spartanburg County), South Carolina. The facility (130 employees) is used to produce front and rear suspension subassemblies and modules PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 for automobiles and light trucks (up to 250,000 units annually) for export and the domestic market. The manufacturing process at the facility involves machining, assembly, coating, and testing, using domestic and foreign– origin inputs. Components that are, or may be, purchased from abroad (representing about 40% of total, by value) used in manufacturing include: pressure hoses, steering components, stabilizer bars, bushings, brackets, ARS active stabilizers and motors, active steering systems, fasteners, steering knuckles, sensors (ABS, wheel speed, height), drive shafts, differentials, links, shock absorbers, supports, retainers, inner tubes, rotors, calipers, shields, brake hoses, brake shoes, electronic damping controllers, ball joints, electro– mechanical brake components, springs, seals, adjuster screws, stabilizers, and motors (duty rate range: free - 4.5%). FTZ procedures would exempt BAC from Customs duty payments on the foreign components used in production for export to non–NAFTA countries. On domestic shipments transferred in–bond to U.S. automobile assembly plants with subzone status, no duties would be paid on the foreign components used in automobile and light truck production until the finished vehicles are formally entered for consumption, at which time the finished automobile duty rate (2.5%) would be applied to the foreign–origin components. For the individual suspension components and subassemblies withdrawn directly by BAC for Customs entry, the finished automotive part rate (2.5%) could be applied to the foreign inputs noted above. The application indicates that subzone status would help improve the facility’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 on the application is invited from interested parties. Submissions (original and three copies) shall be addressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary at the following addresses: 1.
