SMI currently has authority to conduct cut-and-sew activity using certain foreign micro-denier suede upholstery fabrics to produce upholstered furniture and related parts (upholstery cover sets) on a restricted basis (see B–45–2014, 79 FR 64167, October 28, 2014). SMI’s authority allows for the production of upholstered furniture (chairs, seats, sofas, sleep sofas, and sectionals) for a five-year period, with a scope of authority that only provided FTZ savings on a limited quantity (6.0 million square yards per year) of foreign origin, micro-denier suede upholstery fabric finished with a hot caustic soda solution process (i.e., authorized fabrics). All foreign upholstery fabrics other than microdenier suede finished with a hot caustic soda solution process (i.e., unauthorized fabrics) used in SMI’s production within Subzone 158G are subject to full customs duties. The current request seeks to add new foreign-status components and certain polyurethane-type fabrics to the scope of authority. Pursuant to 15 CFR 400.14(b), additional FTZ authority would be limited to the specific foreignstatus materials and 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 SMI from customs duty payments on the foreign-status fabrics and components used in export production.
