The application conforming to the requirements of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.23) was docketed on January 20, 2022. The benefits that may stem from conducting production activity under FTZ procedures are explained in the background section of the FTZ Board’s website—accessible via www.trade.gov/ ftz. The OFS Fitel facility (518 employees, 44.49 acres) is located within Site 40 of FTZ 26. The facility is used for the production of optical fiber products. In 2020, OFS Fitel requested production authority in a notification proceeding (15 CFR 400.22 and 400.37). After an initial review, the requested production authority was approved subject to restrictions that included a requirement that optical fiber and optical bundles be admitted to the zone in privileged foreign (PF) status (19 CFR 146.41), precluding inverted tariff benefits on those inputs (see B–59–2020, 85 FR 61719–61720, September 30, 2020). The pending application proposes to remove that restriction—which would allow OFS Fitel to choose the duty rates during customs entry procedures that apply to optical fiber cable (duty-free) and optical fibers/bundles/ribbon (duty rate, 6.7%) for the following foreignstatus materials/components (representing an average 27% of the value of the finished product): Drawn optical fiber and drawn optical fiber bundles (duty rate, 6.7%). The request indicates that those 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.

Board by Georgia Foreign-Trade Zone, Inc., grantee of FTZ 26, 
requesting production authority on behalf of OFS Fitel, LLC (OFS 
Fitel), located in

[[Page 4196]]

Carrollton, Georgia. The application conforming to the requirements of 
the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.23) was docketed on 
January 20, 2022. The benefits that may stem from conducting production 
activity under FTZ procedures are explained in the background section 
of the FTZ Board's website--accessible via www.trade.gov/ftz.
    The OFS Fitel facility (518 employees, 44.49 acres) is located 
within Site 40 of FTZ 26. The facility is used for the production of 
optical fiber products. In 2020, OFS Fitel requested production 
authority in a notification proceeding (15 CFR 400.22 and 400.37). 
After an initial review, the requested production authority was 
approved subject to restrictions that included a requirement that 
optical fiber and optical bundles be admitted to the zone in privileged 
foreign (PF) status (19 CFR 146.41), precluding inverted tariff 
benefits on those inputs (see B-59-2020, 85 FR 61719-61720, September 
30, 2020). The pending application proposes to remove that 
restriction--which would allow OFS Fitel to choose the duty rates 
during customs entry procedures that apply to optical fiber cable 
(duty-free) and optical fibers/bundles/ribbon (duty rate, 6.7%) for the 
following foreign-status materials/components (representing an average 
27% of the value of the finished product): Drawn optical fiber and 
drawn optical fiber bundles (duty rate, 6.7%). The request indicates 
that those 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.
    In accordance with the FTZ Board's regulations, Diane Finver of the 
FTZ Staff is designated examiner to evaluate and analyze the facts and 
information presented in the application and case record and to report 
findings and recommendations to the FTZ Board.
    Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions 
shall be addressed to the FTZ Board's Executive Secretary and sent to:

Rebuttal comments in response to material submitted during the 
foregoing period may be submitted during the subsequent 15-day period
