The notification conforming to the requirements of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.22) was received on December 17, 2018. Xerox already has authority to produce bulk toner and toner cartridges within Subzone 106D. Xerox has changed its production process and is no longer producing bulk toner and toner cartridges at its Oklahoma City facility. The facility is currently used for the production of polyester latex for printer/copier toner. The current request would add a finished product and foreign status materials/components to the scope of authority. Pursuant to 15 CFR 400.14(b), additional FTZ activity would be limited to the specific foreignstatus materials and components and specific finished product described in the submitted notification (as described below) and subsequently authorized by the FTZ Board. Production under FTZ procedures could exempt Xerox from customs duty payments on the foreign-status components used in export production. On its domestic sales, for the foreignstatus materials/components noted below, Xerox would be able to choose the duty rate during customs entry procedures that apply to polyester latex (duty rate 5.1%). Xerox 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. The components and materials sourced from abroad include dodecanedioic acid, nonanediol, and dodecylbenzenesulfonic acid sodium salt (duty rates range from 4% to 6.5%).

Commerce exercised its discretion to toll all deadlines affected by the partial federal government closure from December 22, 2018, through the resumption of operations on January 29, 2019.2 As a result, the deadline for the preliminary determination was revised to February 26, 2019. Postponement of Preliminary Determination Section 703(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department to issue the preliminary determination in a countervailing duty investigation within 65 days after the date on which Commerce initiated the investigation. However, section 703(c)(1) of the Act permits Commerce to postpone the preliminary determination until no later than 130 days after the date on which Commerce initiated the investigation if: (A) The petitioner 3 makes a timely request for a postponement; or (B) Commerce concludes that the parties concerned are cooperating, that the investigation is extraordinarily complicated, and that additional time is necessary to make a preliminary determination. Under 19 CFR 351.205(e), the petitioner must submit a request for postponement 25 days or more before the scheduled date of the preliminary determination and must state the reasons for the request. Commerce will grant the request unless it finds compelling reasons to deny the request. On December 18, 2018, the petitioner submitted a timely request that Commerce postpone the preliminary CVD determination.4 The petitioner stated that it requests postponement so that all parties have sufficient time to develop the record in this investigation.5 In accordance with 19 CFR 351.205(e), the petitioner has stated the reasons for requesting a postponement of the preliminary determination, and Commerce finds no compelling reason to deny the request.

Oklahoma. The notification conforming to the requirements of the 
regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.22) was received on December 
17, 2018.
    Xerox already has authority to produce bulk toner and toner 
cartridges within Subzone 106D. Xerox has changed its production 
process and is no longer producing bulk toner and toner cartridges at 
its Oklahoma City facility. The facility is currently used for the 
production of polyester latex for printer/copier toner. The current 
request would add a finished product and foreign status materials/
components to the scope of authority. Pursuant to 15 CFR 400.14(b), 
additional FTZ activity would be limited to the specific foreign-status 
materials and components and specific finished product described in the 
submitted notification (as described below) and subsequently authorized 
by the FTZ Board.
    Production under FTZ procedures could exempt Xerox from customs 
duty payments on the foreign-status components used in export 
production. On its domestic sales, for the foreign-status materials/
components noted below, Xerox would be able to choose the duty rate 
during customs entry procedures that apply to polyester latex (duty 
rate 5.1%). Xerox 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.
    The components and materials sourced from abroad include 
dodecanedioic acid, nonanediol, and dodecylbenzenesulfonic acid sodium 
salt (duty rates range from 4% to 6.5%). The request indicates that 
certain

materials/components are subject to special duties under Section 301 of 
the Trade Act of 1974 (Section 301), depending on the country of 
origin. The applicable Section 301 decisions require subject 
merchandise to be admitted to FTZs in privileged foreign status (19 CFR 
146.41).
