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).

The facility is used to produce pressuresensitive adhesive athletic tape (e.g., trainers, hockey) with textile backing material for the U.S. market and export. The manufacturing process under FTZ procedures would involve blending, calendaring/laminating, winding, slitting, and packaging. The activity uses production inputs purchased from domestic and foreign sources. The sole material inputs sourced from abroad (representing about 30% of the finished tape’s value) are woven cotton and polyester/cotton textile fabrics (duty rates: 10.5, 14.9%). The facility can produce up to 12.5 million square meters of finished athletic tape annually. FTZ procedures could exempt NAT from customs duty payments on the foreign fabrics used in export production. The company anticipates that some 58 percent of the plant’s shipments will be exported. On its domestic sales, NAT would be able to choose the duty rate during customs entry procedures that applies to athletic tape (duty rate: 2.9%) for the foreignorigin textile fabrics noted above. FTZ designation would further allow NAT 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. NAT would also be exempt from duty payments on foreign fabric that becomes scrap during the production process. The application indicates that the savings from FTZ procedures would help improve the facility’s international competitiveness.
