Download as PDF lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with NOTICES1 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 150 / Monday, August 9, 2021 / Notices below as the regulations) govern the importation of certain animals and animal products into the United States to prevent the introduction of various animal diseases, including Newcastle disease and highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI). The regulations prohibit or restrict the importation of live poultry, poultry meat, and other poultry products from regions where these diseases are considered to exist. Section 94.6 of the regulations contains requirements governing the importation into the United States of carcasses, meat, parts or products of carcasses, and eggs (other than hatching eggs) of poultry, game birds, or other birds from regions of the world where HPAI exists or is reasonably believed to exist. HPAI is an extremely infectious and potentially fatal form of avian influenza in birds and poultry that, once established, can spread rapidly from flock to flock. The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) maintains a restrictions list of regions it considers affected with HPAI of any subtype on the APHIS website at https://www.aphis.usda.gov/aphis/ ourfocus/animalhealth/animal-andanimal-product-import-information/ animal-health-status-of-regions. APHIS receives notice of HPAI outbreaks from veterinary officials of the exporting country, from the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE),1 or from other sources the Administrator determines to be reliable. On November 18, 2020, the veterinary authorities of the Republic of Croatia reported to the OIE an HPAI occurrence in that country. On November 25, 2020, after confirming that HPAI occurred in commercial birds or poultry, APHIS added the Republic of Croatia to the list of regions where HPAI exists. On that same date, APHIS issued an import alert notifying stakeholders that effective November 21, 2020, APHIS imposed restrictions on the importation of poultry, commercial birds, other types of birds (research, performing), ratites, any avian hatching eggs, unprocessed avian products and byproducts, and certain fresh poultry products from the Republic of Croatia to mitigate risk of HPAI introduction into the United States. On January 7, 2021, the veterinary authorities of the Republic of Senegal reported to the OIE an HPAI occurrence in that country. On January 12, 2021, after confirming that the HPAI occurred in commercial birds or poultry, APHIS 1 The World Organization for Animal Health internationally follows a British English spelling of ‘‘organisation’’ in its name; also, it was formerly the Office International des Epizooties, or OIE, an acronym still in usage. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:26 Aug 06, 2021 Jkt 253001 added the Republic of Senegal to the list of regions where HPAI exists. On that same date, APHIS issued an import alert notifying stakeholders that effective December 30, 2020, APHIS imposed restrictions on the importation of poultry, commercial birds, other types of birds (research, performing), ratites, any avian hatching eggs, unprocessed avian products and byproducts, and certain fresh poultry products from the Republic of Senegal to mitigate risk of HPAI introduction into the United States. On February 8, 2021, the veterinary authorities of the People’s Democratic Republic of Algeria reported to the OIE an HPAI occurrence in that country. On February 10, 2021, after confirming that the HPAI occurred in commercial birds or poultry, APHIS added the People’s Democratic Republic of Algeria to the list of regions where HPAI exists. On that same date, APHIS issued an import alert notifying stakeholders that effective January 26, 2021, APHIS imposed restrictions on the importation of poultry, commercial birds, other types of birds (research, performing), ratites, any avian hatching eggs, unprocessed avian products and byproducts, and certain fresh poultry products from the People’s Democratic Republic of Algeria to mitigate risk of HPAI introduction into the United States. With the publication of this notice, we are informing the public that we added: The Republic of Croatia to the list of regions APHIS considers affected with HPAI of any subtype, effective November 25, 2020; the Republic of Senegal to the list of regions APHIS considers affected with HPAI of any subtype, effective January 12, 2021; and the People’s Democratic Republic of Algeria to the list of regions APHIS considers affected with HPAI of any subtype, effective February 10, 2021.

[FR Doc. 2021–16873 Filed 8–6–21; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE P DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE Foreign-Trade Zones Board [B–56–2021] lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with NOTICES1 Foreign-Trade Zone (FTZ) 38— Charleston, South Carolina; Notification of Proposed Production Activity, BMW Manufacturing Company, LLC (Passenger Motor Vehicles), Spartanburg, South Carolina BMW Manufacturing Company, LLC (BMW MC) submitted a notification of proposed production activity to the FTZ Board for its facility in Spartanburg, South Carolina. The notification conforming to the requirements of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.22) was received on July 28, 2021. BMW MC already has authority to produce gasoline and diesel-powered motor vehicles, gasoline-powered hybrid plug-in electric motor vehicles, motor vehicle bodies, stamped body parts, and lithium-ion batteries within Subzone 38A. The current request would add finished products and a foreign status component to the scope of authority. Pursuant to 15 CFR 400.14(b), VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:26 Aug 06, 2021 Jkt 253001 additional FTZ authority would be limited to the specific foreign-status 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 BMW MC from customs duty payments on the foreign-status materials/components used in export production. On its domestic sales, for the foreign-status materials/components noted below and in the existing scope of authority, BMW MC would be able to choose the duty rates during customs entry procedures that apply to motor vehicle door assemblies and motor vehicle hatch assemblies (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 curved thin film transistor liquid crystal displays (duty-free). The request indicates that the component may be subject to 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). 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 September 20, 2021. A copy of the notification will be available for public inspection in the ‘‘Reading Room’’ section of the Board’s website, which is accessible via www.trade.gov/ftz.
