Notification of Proposed Production Activity, Polaris Industries, 
Inc., Subzone 167B (Spark-Ignition Internal Combustion Engines); 
Osceola, Wisconsin

    Polaris Industries, Inc. (Polaris), operator of Subzone 167B,

Board for its facility located in Osceola, Wisconsin. The notification 
conforming to the requirements of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 
CFR 400.22) was received on March 30, 2015.
    Polaris already has authority to produce spark-ignition internal 
combustion engines (up to 1,050 cc's) for snowmobiles, personal 
watercraft and all-terrain vehicles, as well as authority to produce 
engines for motorcycles. The current request would add certain foreign-
status components to the scope of authority. Pursuant to 15 CFR 
400.14(b), additional FTZ authority 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 Polaris from customs 
duty payments on the foreign status components used in export 
production. On its domestic sales, Polaris would be able to choose the 
duty rate during customs entry procedures that applies to spark-
ignition internal combustion engines (free) for the foreign status 
components and materials 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 sourced from abroad include: Steel pins; input 
shafts; cylinder heads; cannonball heads; spring retainers; shift 
forks; compensators; pulleys; gears; metal gaskets; voltage regulators; 
position crank sensors; engine control units and bases; wiring 
harnesses; roller followers; gears for engines; shafts for engines; 
sleeves; sliders; counter shafts; shift forks; main shafts; output 
shafts; ratchet shifters; retainers; shift drums; pinions; water 
temperature sensors; and, thermostats (duty rate ranges from free to 
2.8%).
    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 May 20, 2015.
    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.,
