The notification conforming to the requirements of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.22) was received on November 21, 2017. The Eastman Chemical facility is located within Site 12 of FTZ 204. The facility is used for the separation via vacuum distillation of an imported blend of acetic anhydride and acetic acid. Pursuant to 15 CFR 400.14(b), FTZ activity would be limited to the specific foreign-status 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 Eastman Chemical from customs duty payments on the foreignstatus components used in export production. On its domestic sales, for the foreign-status material/component noted below, Eastman Chemical would be able to choose the duty rates during customs entry procedures that apply to acetic acid and acetic anhydride (duty rate ranges from 1.8 to 3.5%). Eastman Chemical would be able to avoid duty on foreign-status components which become scrap/waste. Customs duties also could possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign-status production equipment. VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:51 Nov 27, 2017 Jkt 244001 The component/material sourced from abroad is a blend of acetic anhydride and acetic acid (duty rate 5%).

A user-fee airport may serve as a port of entry for purposes of establishing, operating and maintaining a FTZ pursuant to the FTZ Board’s regulations (see 15 CFR 400.2(m)). The grantee now proposes to reestablish the zone as an additional zone adjacent to the Los Angeles/Long Beach U.S. Customs and Border Protection port of entry.
