Foreign-Trade Zone (FTZ) 100--Dayton, Ohio; Notification of 
Proposed Production Activity; THOR Industries, Inc. (Commercial Bus 
Manufacturing); Jackson Center, Ohio

    The Greater Dayton Foreign-Trade Zone, Inc., grantee of FTZ 100, 
submitted a notification of proposed production activity to the FTZ 
Board on behalf of THOR Industries, Inc. (THOR), located in Jackson 
Center, Ohio. The notification conforming to the requirements of the 
regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.22) was received on November 
26, 2013.
    THOR already has authority to produce recreational vehicles within 
FTZ Subzone 100D. The current request would add a finished product and 
a foreign-status component to the scope of authority. Pursuant to 15 
CFR 400.14(b), additional FTZ authority would be limited to the 
specific foreign-status component and specific finished product 
described in the submitted notification (as described below) and 
subsequently authorized by the FTZ Board.
    Production under FTZ procedures could exempt THOR from customs duty 
payments on the foreign status components used in export production. On 
its domestic sales, THOR would be able to choose the duty rates during 
customs entry procedures that apply to commercial buses (duty rate of 
2%) for the foreign status inputs noted below and in the existing scope 
of authority. Customs duties also could possibly be deferred or reduced 
on foreign status production equipment.
    The component sourced from abroad is: Chassis (duty rate of 25%).
    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 January 21, 2014.
    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.
    For further information, contact Christopher Kemp at 
Christopher.Kemp@trade.gov or (202) 482-0862.
