2020.
    The grantee has submitted a separate application for FTZ 
designation at the company's facility under FTZ 22. The facility is

limited to the specific foreign-status material/component 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 Volflex from customs 
duty payments on the foreign-status material/component used in export 
production. On its domestic sales, for the foreign-status material/

able to avoid duty on foreign-status material which becomes scrap/
waste. Customs duties also could possibly be deferred or reduced on 
foreign-status production equipment.
    The material/component sourced from abroad is aluminum foil (duty 
rate 5.8%). The request indicates that aluminum foil is subject to an 
antidumping/countervailing duty (AD/CVD) order if imported from the

400.14(e)) require that merchandise subject to AD/CVD orders, or items 
which would be otherwise subject to suspension of liquidation under AD/
CVD procedures if they entered U.S. customs territory, be admitted to 
the zone in privileged foreign status (19 CFR 146.41). The request also 
indicates that aluminum foil may be subject to duties under Section 232 
of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962 (Section 232) or Section 301 of the

The applicable Section 232 and Section 301 decisions require subject 
merchandise to be admitted to FTZs in privileged foreign status.
