notification of proposed production activity on behalf of Suzuki Mfg. 
of America Corp. (SMAC), located in Rome, Jonesboro, and Cartersville, 
Georgia. The notification conforming to the requirements of the 
regulations of the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (15 CFR 400.22) was 
received on November 19, 2012.
    The SMAC facilities are located at: 1520 and 1627 Technology 
Parkway, NW., Rome (Floyd County); 9250 Main Street, Jonesboro (Clayton 
County); and, 400 High Point Road Cartersville (Bartow County), 
Georgia. A separate request for subzone designation at the SMAC 
facilities has been processed under Section 400.24(c) of the Board's 
regulations. The facilities are used for the production of all-terrain 
vehicles (ATVs) and related components (carriers, footrests, fuel 
tanks, grips/handle bars, frames, rear box assemblies). Production 
under FTZ procedures could exempt SMAC from customs duty payments on 
the foreign status components and materials used in export production. 
On its domestic sales, SMAC would be able to choose the duty rate 
during customs entry procedures that apply to ATVs and related 
components (free--2.5%) for the foreign status inputs noted below. 
Customs duties also could possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign 
status production equipment.
    Components and materials sourced from abroad include: articles of 
rubber, hoses, gaskets, washers, fasteners, springs, sign plates/
labels, brackets, plates, braces, fittings, body parts, engines and 
related parts, pumps, fans, valves, hose/pipe assemblies, guides, 
electrical components, coils, sensors and related assemblies, 
resistors, horns, relays, switches, lighting equipment, radiators, 
electronic control units, stampings, other parts of ATVs, brake parts, 
axles, gauges, and wheels (duty rate ranges from free to 8.6%).
    Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions 
shall be addressed to the Board's Executive Secretary at the address 
below. The closing period for their receipt is February 4, 2013.
    A copy of the notification will be available for public inspection 
at the Office of the Executive Secretary, Foreign-Trade Zones Board, 
Room 21013, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW., 
Washington, DC 20230-0002, and in the ``Reading Room'' section of the 
Board's Web site, which is accessible via www.trade.gov/ftz.
