The notification conforming to the requirements of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.22) was received on December 4, 2013. The Crosman facilities would be located within a subzone of the proposed Ontario County zone. The facilities are used for the inspection, assembly, kitting, testing and packaging of airguns. Pursuant to 15 CFR 400.14(b), FTZ activity would be limited to the specific foreign-status materials/ components and specific finished products described in the submitted VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:00 Dec 10, 2013 Jkt 232001 notification (as described below) and subsequently authorized by the FTZ Board. Production under FTZ procedures could exempt Crosman from customs duty payments on the foreign status materials/components used in export production. On its domestic sales, Crosman would be able to choose the duty rates during customs entry procedures that apply to airguns, break barrel airguns, variable pump airguns, CO2 airguns, and airsoft guns (duty rate ranges from duty-free to 3.9%) for the foreign status materials/components noted below. Customs duties also could possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign status production equipment. The materials/components sourced from abroad include: Liquid crystal and laser optical sights and mounts; gun cases and holsters with outer surface of plastic or textile material; telescopic sights for rifles; portable electrical lamps and flashlights; pistols, rifles and other guns which eject missiles by release of compressed air or gas, or by release of a spring mechanism or rubber held under tension; stocks and other parts for airgun rifles and pistols; imitation jewelry, such as dog tags; protective eyewear; nickel-cadmium storage batteries; fiber optic sights; spectacle lenses; and, electrical transformers with a power output not exceeding 50W (duty rate ranges from 1.5 to 17.6%). The request indicates that gun cases and holsters classified under HTSUS Subheading 4202.92 will be admitted to the zone in privileged foreign status (19 CFR 146.41), thereby precluding inverted tariff benefits on such items.

Zones Board (the Board) adopts the following Order:

    Whereas, the Foreign-Trade Zones Act provides for ``. . . the 
establishment . . . of foreign-trade zones in ports of entry of the 
United States, to expedite and encourage foreign commerce, and for 
other purposes,'' and authorizes the Foreign-Trade Zones Board to grant 
to qualified corporations the privilege of establishing foreign-trade 
zones in or adjacent to U.S. Customs and Border Protection ports of 
entry;
    Whereas, the Board adopted the alternative site framework (ASF) (15 
CFR 400.2(c)) as an option for the establishment or reorganization of 
zones;
    Whereas, the Northwest Iowa Development Corporation (the Grantee) 
has made application to the Board (B-4-2013, docketed 1/15/2013), 
requesting the establishment of a foreign-trade zone under the ASF with 
a service area of Cherokee, Lyon, O'Brien, Osceola, Plymouth and Sioux 
Counties, Iowa, adjacent to the Sioux Falls Customs and Border 
Protection port of entry, proposed Site 1 would be categorized as a 
magnet site, and proposed Sites 2 and 3 would be categorized as usage-
driven sites;
    Whereas, notice inviting public comment has been given in the 
Federal Register (78 FR 4382-4383, 1/22/2013) and the application has 
been processed pursuant to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations; 
and,
    Whereas, the Board adopts the findings and recommendations of the

application, and subject to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations, 
including Section 400.13, to the Board's standard 2,000-acre activation 
limit, to an ASF sunset provision for magnet sites that would terminate 
authority for Site 1 if not activated within five years from the date 
of approval, and to a three-year ASF sunset provision for usage-driven 
sites that would terminate authority for Sites 2 and 3 if no foreign-
status merchandise is admitted for a bona fide customs purpose within 
three years from the date of approval.
