Notification of Proposed Production Activity; Suzuki 
Manufacturing of America Corporation, Subzone 26L (All-Terrain 
Vehicles), Rome, Jonesboro and Cartersville, Georgia

    Georgia Foreign-Trade Zone, Inc., grantee of FTZ 26, submitted a 
notification of proposed production activity to the FTZ Board on behalf 
of Suzuki Manufacturing of America Corporation (SMAC), operator of 
Subzone 26L, at its facilities located in Rome, Jonesboro and 
Cartersville, Georgia. The notification conforming to the requirements 
of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.22) was received on May 
21, 2014.
    SMAC already has authority to produce all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) 
and related components (carriers, footrests, fuel tanks, grips/handle 
bars, frames, rear box assemblies). The current request would add 
certain foreign components to the scope of authority. Pursuant to 15 
CFR 400.14(b), FTZ activity would be limited to the specific foreign-
status components 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 SMAC from customs duty 
payments on the foreign status components used in export production. On 
its domestic sales, SMAC would be able to choose the duty rate during 
customs entry procedures that applies to ATVs, carriers, footrests, 
fuel tanks, grips/handle bars, frames, and rear box assemblies (2.5%) 
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 components and materials sourced from abroad include: Plastic 
resins; chip plates; rubber hoses with/without fittings; rubber v-
belts; tires and tubes; steel tubing; runners/banners; printed books/
manuals/brochures; chain cam/oil pump drives; fasteners, of steel and 
aluminum; aluminum gaskets; mountings and brackets; fenders; oil 
strainers; crankshaft bearings and assemblies; bearing housings; metal 
gaskets; stainless o-rings; batteries; spark plugs; starter motors; 
capacitive discharge ignition (CDI) units; magnetos; compact disc sets; 
gaskets (copper, paper); gear shift assemblies; light bulbs; KD parts 
of ATVs; gear/fork shafts; therma-coupler nozzles; speedometers; and, 
battery plates (duty rate ranges from free to 9.0%).
    Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions 
shall be addressed to the FTZ Board's Executive Secretary at the 
address below. The closing period for their receipt is July 22, 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 
FTZ Board's Web site, which is accessible via www.trade.gov/ftz.
    For further information, contact Pierre Duy at Pierre.Duy@trade.gov 
or (202) 482-1378.

    Dated: June 6, 2014.
Andrew McGilvray,
Executive Secretary.
