Foreign-Trade Zone 148-Knoxville, TN, Application for Subzone Toho, Tenax America, Inc., Extension of Comment Period, 74002 [2010-30132]

Download as PDF jdjones on DSK8KYBLC1PROD with NOTICES 74002 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 229 / Tuesday, November 30, 2010 / Notices 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 November 19, 2010. The GEA Bloomington facility (500 employees, 80.0 acres, 800,000 unit capacity) is located at 301 N. Curry Pike, Bloomington, Indiana. The facility is used for the manufacture and distribution of refrigerators. Components and materials sourced from abroad (representing 50% of the value of the finished product) include: ABS resin, plastic fittings, rubber gaskets, screws, bolts, hinges, brackets, metal plates, compressors, filters, taps, valves, motors, inverters, wire harnesses, switches, plugs, sockets, electronic control boards, lamps, light dispensers, harness machines, conductors, and refrigerator parts (duty rate ranges from duty free to 8.6%). FTZ procedures could exempt GEA Bloomington from customs duty payments on the foreign components used in export production. The company anticipates that less than 1% of the plant’s shipments will be exported. On its domestic sales, GEA Bloomington would be able to choose the duty rates during customs entry procedures that apply to refrigerators and refrigerator parts (duty free) for the foreign inputs noted above. FTZ designation would further allow GEA Bloomington to realize logistical benefits through the use of weekly customs entry procedures. Customs duties also could possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign status production equipment. The request indicates that the savings from FTZ procedures would help improve the plant’s international competitiveness. In accordance with the Board’s regulations, Maureen Hinman of the FTZ Staff is designated examiner to evaluate and analyze the facts and information presented in the application and case record and to report findings and recommendations 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 address below. The closing period for their receipt is January 31, 2011. Rebuttal comments in response to material submitted during the foregoing period may be submitted during the subsequent 15-day period to February 14, 2011.

Background On July 7, 2010, the Department published the initiation of the new shipper reviews of the antidumping duty order on fresh garlic from the People’s Republic of China for three exporters: Shenzhen Bainong Co., Ltd. (Bainong), Jining Yifa Garlic Produce Co., Ltd, (Yifa) and Yantai Jinyan Trading, Inc. (Jinyan). The period of review (POR) for Bainong and Yifa is November 1, 2009 through April 30, 2010. The POR for Jinyan is November 1, 2009 through May 31, 2010. See Fresh Garlic From the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of New Shipper Reviews, 75 FR 38986 (July 7, 2010). Extension of Time Limit for the Preliminary Results Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(1) require the Department to issue the preliminary results of a new shipper review within 180 days after the date on which the review was initiated, and the final results of the review within 90 days after the date on which the preliminary results were issued. However, if the Department concludes that a new shipper review is extraordinarily complicated, section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2) allow the Department to extend the 180-day period to 300 days, and to extend the 90-day period to 150 days. The current deadline for the preliminary results is December 27, 2010. The Department has determined that these new shipper reviews involve extraordinarily complicated methodological issues, which require the examination of importer and customer information for Bainong, Jinyan, and Yifa. Additional time is also required to ensure that the Department can fully examine whether the sales under review are bona fide for each of the three companies under review. Therefore, the Department is extending the deadline for completion E:\FR\FM\30NON1.SGM 30NON1
