FTZ Board for its facilities in Huntsville, Alabama. The notification 
conforming to the requirements of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 
CFR 400.22) was received on April 14, 2015.
    A separate request for subzone designation at the TMMAL facilities 
will be submitted and processed under Section 400.31 of the FTZ Board's 
regulations. The facilities are used for the production of spark-

limited to the specific foreign-status materials and components and 
specific finished products described in the submitted notification (as

    Production under FTZ procedures could exempt TMMAL from customs 
duty payments on the foreign status components used in export 
production. On its domestic sales, TMMAL would be able to choose the 
duty rate during customs entry procedures that applies to passenger 
motor vehicle engines, transmissions and related components (2.5%) for 
the foreign status inputs noted below. Customs duties also could 
possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign status production equipment.
    The components sourced from abroad include: Plastic labels; plastic 
oil filler caps/clamps/oil seal rings; steel fittings/plugs/screws/
bolts/pins/spring washers/hose clips; drain cock assemblies; valve 
levers; bearings (tapered roller, thrust, races, crank); flywheel 
subassemblies; pulleys; sprockets; key guides; washers (crankshaft); 
oil pressure switches; crank position sensors; and, wiring harnesses 
(duty rate ranges from 2.6 to 8.5%).

shall be addressed to the FTZ Board's Executive Secretary at the 
address below. The closing period for their receipt is June 22, 2015.
    A copy of the notification will be available for public inspection
