[FR Doc. 2017–11324 Filed 5–31–17; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3510–DS–P DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE Foreign-Trade Zones Board [B–34–2017] mstockstill on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES Foreign-Trade Zone (FTZ) 74— Baltimore, Maryland; Notification of Proposed Production Activity; Mercedes Benz USA, LLC (Accessorizing Passenger Motor Vehicles); Baltimore, Maryland The City of Baltimore, Maryland, grantee of FTZ 74, submitted a notification of proposed production activity to the FTZ Board on behalf of Mercedes Benz USA, LLC (MBUSA), located in Baltimore, Maryland. The notification conforming to the requirements of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.22) was received on May 8, 2017. MBUSA already has FTZ authority for accessorizing passenger motor vehicles within Site 6 of FTZ 74. The current request would add foreign-status materials/components to the scope of authority. Pursuant to 15 CFR 400.14(b), FTZ activity would be limited to the specific foreign-status materials and components described in the submitted notification (as described below) and subsequently authorized by the FTZ Board. Production under FTZ procedures could exempt MBUSA from customs duty payments on the foreign-status components used in export production. On its domestic sales, MBUSA would be able to choose the duty rate during customs entry procedures that applies to passenger motor vehicles (duty rate— VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:32 May 31, 2017 Jkt 241001 2.5%) 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 and materials sourced from abroad include plastic statuettes and other ornamental articles, carpets of man-made fiber, smart cards/ memory cards for data storage, and steering wheels (duty rates range from free to 5.3%). The applicant indicates that carpets of man-made fibers would be admitted to the FTZ in privileged foreign status (19 CFR 146.41). This would preclude inverted tariff benefits on the foreign-status carpets used in its domestic sales of passenger motor vehicles. 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 July 11, 2017. A copy of the notification will be available for public inspection at the Office of the Executive Secretary, Foreign-Trade Zones Board, Room 21013, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230–0002, and in the ‘‘Reading Room’’ section of the FTZ Board’s Web site, which is accessible via www.trade.gov/ftz. For further information, contact Diane Finver at Diane.Finver@trade.gov or (202) 482–1367. Dated: May 26, 2017. Elizabeth Whiteman, Acting Executive Secretary. The proposed subzone (7.4 acres) is located at 101 W. Eldora Road in Pharr. The proposed subzone would be subject to the existing activation limit of FTZ 12. No authorization for production activity has been requested at this time. In accordance with the Board’s regulations, Camille Evans of the FTZ Staff is designated examiner to review the application and make recommendations to the Executive Secretary. Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions shall be addressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary at the address below. The closing period for their receipt is July 11, 2017. Rebuttal comments in response to material submitted during the foregoing period may be submitted during the subsequent 15-day period to July 26, 2017.

entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of 
this review, pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR

the original investigation but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit

responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation

assessment of double antidumping duties.

a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) 
of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of

govern business proprietary information in this segment of the
