Foreign-Trade Zone 163 - Ponce, Puerto Rico, Application for Expansion, 65583 [E8-26285]

Download as PDF dwashington3 on PRODPC61 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 214 / Tuesday, November 4, 2008 / Notices also requests that the scope of FTZ manufacturing authority be expanded to include the additional production capacity (new total would be 610 million feet per year). Uponor uses foreign–origin polyethylene (HDPE) resin (HTSUS 3901.10, 6.5%) to manufacture the PEX tubing, which represents about 21 percent of the finished tubing’s value. The company distributes certain foreign parts and materials used to construct the radiant heating systems, including thermostats, fittings, aluminum pipe, polyethylene pipe, polymers and resins, plastic foil, insulation, packaging materials, polyester tape, fasteners, mounting tracks, valves, transformers, fuses, relays, junction boxes, flow meters, and regulators. Expanded FTZ procedures could continue to exempt Uponor from customs duty payments on the foreign– origin resin used in production for export (about 1% of shipments). On its domestic shipments, the company would be able to elect the duty rate that applies to finished PEX tubing (3.1%) for the foreign resin used in the manufacturing process. Customs duties also could possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign status production equipment. In accordance with the Board’s regulations, Pierre Duy of the FTZ Staff is 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 the following address: Office of the Executive Secretary, Room 2111, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20230–0002. The closing period for receipt of comments is January 5, 2009. Rebuttal comments in response to material submitted during the foregoing period may be submitted during the subsequent 15–day period to January 20, 2009. A copy of the application will be available for public inspection at each of the following locations: U.S. Department of Commerce Export Assistance Center, Suite 210–C, 100 North 6th Street, Minneapolis, MN 55403; and, at the Office of the Foreign– Trade Zones Board’s Executive Secretary at the address listed above.
