Sonoco Display and Packaging already has authority to produce various cosmetic and personal hygiene gift sets within Sites 24—27 of FTZ 230. The current request would add deodorant/ antiperspirant and body wash gift sets and certain foreign components to the scope of authority.

On its domestic sales, Sonoco Display and Packaging would be able to choose the duty rates during customs entry procedures that apply to deodorant/antiperspirant and body wash gift sets (free, 4.9%) for the foreign status inputs noted below and in the existing scope of authority. Customs duties also could possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign status production equipment. The components sourced from abroad include: plastic boxes and cases; train cases, vanity cases, component bags, wallets, various hand-held bags, and handbags and clutches of textile materials (HTSUS Subheadings 4202.12, 4202.22, 4202.29, 4202.32, 4202.92, and 4202.99); component bags of plaited natural materials; set boxes; glass trays; plush items (e.g., stuffed toys, animals); eyelash curlers; and, perfume pursers (duty rate ranges from free to 20%).
