Pursuant to 15 CFR 400.14(b), additional FTZ authority would be limited to the specific foreign-status component described in the submitted notification (as described below) and subsequently authorized by the FTZ Board. Production under FTZ procedures could exempt BMW MC from customs duty payments on the foreign-status component used in export production. On its domestic sales, for the foreignstatus component noted below, BMW MC would be able to choose the duty rate during customs entry procedures that applies to passenger motor vehicles (duty rate 2.5%). BMW MC 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 component sourced from abroad is electronic toll collection systems (duty-free). The request indicates that electronic toll collection systems are subject to 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). Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions shall be addressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary and sent to: ftz@trade.gov. The closing period for their receipt is March 15, 2021.

Denying Export Privileges

    On April 30, 2019, in the U.S. District Court for the Western 
District of Texas, Irma Lizette Trevizo (``Trevizo''), was convicted of 
violating 18 U.S.C. 371. Specifically, Trevizo was convicted of 
knowingly and willfully conspiring to smuggle firearms and ammunition 
from the United States to Mexico. Trevizo was sentenced to 24 months in

convicted of certain offenses, including, but not limited to, 18 U.S.C. 
371, may be denied for a period of up to ten (10) years from the date 
of his/her conviction. 50 U.S.C. 4819(e) (Prior Convictions). In 
addition, any Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) licenses or other 
authorizations issued under ECRA, in which the person had an interest 
at the time of the conviction, may be revoked. Id.

Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019, and as amended, is 
codified at 50 U.S.C. 4801-4852. Trevizo's conviction post-dates 
ECRA's enactment on August 13, 2018.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    BIS received notice of Trevizo's conviction for violating 18 U.S.C. 
371, and has provided notice and opportunity for Trevizo to make a 
written submission to BIS, as provided in Section 766.25 of the Export

above.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Based upon my review of the record and consultations with BIS's 
Office of Exporter Services, including its Director, and the facts 
available to BIS, I have decided to deny Trevizo's export privileges 
under the Regulations for a period of 10 years from the date of 
Trevizo's conviction. I have also decided to revoke any BIS-issued 
licenses in which Trevizo had an interest at the time of her 
conviction.\3\
