The notification conforming to the requirements of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.22) was received on October 14, 2014. The MAT facility is located at 118 West Rock Street, Springfield, Minnesota. A separate application for subzone designation at the MAT facility has been submitted and will be processed under Section 400.25 of the FTZ Board’s regulations. The facility is used for the production of air compressors, air compressor tanks, and pressure washers. Pursuant to 15 CFR 400.14(b), FTZ authority would be limited to the specific foreign-status components and specific finished products described in the submitted notification (as described below) and subsequently authorized by the FTZ Board. Production under FTZ procedures could exempt MAT from customs duty payments on the foreign status components used in export production. On its domestic sales, MAT would be able to choose the duty rate during customs entry procedures that applies to air compressors, air compressor tanks, and pressure washers (free) for the foreign status components noted below. Customs duties also could possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign status production equipment. The components sourced from abroad include: Rubber gaskets; cardboard boxes; paper cards/manuals/labels; cloth bags; plastic tubes; ceramic nozzles; cast iron fittings/washers; zinc connectors; brass nut sleeves; copper nuts; nickel fittings; aluminum couplers; engines; air filters; spray guns; pressure switches; body/check valves; regulators; bearing carriers; AC motors; capacitors; thermal overload wires; power cords and accessories; pressure gauges; stainless steel reducers/ bushings/plugs/nipples; non-alloy steel weld flanges; cast iron nipples/ bushings/reducers/plugs; copper washers/flywheels; brass fittings/ reducers; compressor parts; barrel screws; hydraulic assemblies; filter regulators and assemblies; valve assemblies; relief valves; pulleys; flywheels; cylinder heads and plates; steel bushings/valves; iron/steel assemblies; inflators; PVC air hoses; plastic clamshells/handles/hubcaps/Vbelts; rubber wheels; sandblasters; carry tanks; nailers; air drills; grinding stone sets; tool display bars; electrical pumps; pistons; impact sockets; chisel sets; ball bearings; crankshafts; sanders; and, pneumatic needle scalers (duty rate ranges from free to 6.5%).

The ASF is an option for grantees for the establishment or reorganization of zones and can permit significantly greater flexibility in the designation of new subzones or ‘‘usage-driven’’ FTZ sites for operators/ users located within a grantee’s ‘‘service area’’ in the context of the FTZ Board’s standard 2,000-acre activation limit for a zone. The application was submitted pursuant to 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 docketed on October 22, 2014. FTZ 80 was approved by the FTZ Board on September 16, 1982 (Board Order 200, 47 FR 42011, 9/23/1982), and expanded on May 17, 1991 (Board Order 522, 56 FR 24171, 5/29/1991) and on September 25, 1997 (Board Order 923, 62 FR 51831, 10/3/1997). The current zone includes the following sites in San Antonio: Site 1 (1.32 acres)—San Antonio Distribution Center, 5040 Space Center Drive; Site 2 (50 acres)—San Antonio International Airport Cargo Facilities, 9800 Airport Boulevard; Site 3 (500 acres)—Freeport Business Center, 10745 Fisher Road; Site 4 (195 acres)—Cornerstone Business & Industrial Park, 1510 Cornerway Boulevard; Site 5 (281 acres)—Tri-County Business & Industrial Park, 6421 FM 3009; Site 6 (633 acres)—Foster Ridge Industrial Park, 6655 Lancer Boulevard; Site 7A (11.7 acres)—Binz-Engleman Center, 3802 Binz-Engleman Road; Site 7B (18.91 acres)—City Park East Business Center, 8563 NE Loop 410; Site 8 (45.67 acres)—Coliseum Distribution Center, 1143 AT&T Center Parkway; Site 9 (85 acres)—Hemisfair Convention Center & Alamodome, 200 South Alamo Street; and, Site 10 (2,407 acres)—Port San Antonio, 143 Billy Mitchell Boulevard. The grantee’s proposed service area under the ASF would be Bexar County in its entirety and portions of Comal and Guadalupe Counties, Texas, as described in the application. If approved, the grantee would be able to serve sites throughout the service area PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 64169 based on companies’ needs for FTZ designation. The proposed service area is within and adjacent to the San Antonio Customs and Border Protection port of entry. The applicant is requesting authority to reorganize its existing zone as follows: Renumber Site 7A as Site 7; Renumber Site 7B as Site 11; and, Sites 1 thru 11 would become ‘‘magnet’’ sites. The ASF allows for the possible exemption of one magnet site from the ‘‘sunset’’ time limits that generally apply to sites under the ASF, and the applicant proposes that Site 3 be so exempted. No subzones/usage-driven sites are being requested at this time. The application would have no impact on FTZ 80’s previously authorized subzones. In accordance with the FTZ Board’s regulations, Camille Evans 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 FTZ Board. Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions shall be addressed to the FTZ Board’s Executive Secretary at the address below. The closing period for their receipt is December 29, 2014. Rebuttal comments in response to material submitted during the foregoing period may be submitted during the subsequent 15-day period to January 12, 2015.

these materials and components EPI would be able to simplify its 
inventory-control procedures--electing NPF status for materials common 
to its production of inkjet cartridges and bulk ink--while continuing 
to receive FTZ duty-related benefits for its bulk ink production for 
export.
    The request lists the following materials and components sourced 
from abroad for which EPI is requesting authority to elect NPF status 
for use in its bulk ink export production: potassium hydroxide; acrylic

oxydiethanol (diethylene glycol digol); ether-alcohols (penetrants); 
adipic acid; triethanolamine & its salts (other emulsifiers); amino 
acids (stabilizers); N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone; 2-pyrriolidone; 
benzotriazole; direct dyes & preparations based on these direct dyes 
(yellow, black, cyan, brown, orange, violet, red, green, magenta, 
other); preparations based on carbon black; paints and varnish based on 
acrylic or vinyl polymers (solvents); surface active agents; organic 
solvents/thinners (containing 5%-25% by weight of one or more aromatic 
or modified aromatic substances); chemical mixtures (biocides, 
surfactants); and, plastics, polymers of styrene (duty rates range from 
free to 6.5%). Public comment is invited from interested parties.
