Foreign-Trade Zone (FTZ) 38--Spartanburg, South Carolina; 
Notification of Proposed Production Activity; Benteler Automotive 
Corporation (Automotive Suspension and Body Components); Duncan, South 
Carolina

    The South Carolina State Ports Authority, grantee of FTZ 38, 
submitted a notification of proposed production activity to the FTZ 
Board on behalf of Benteler Automotive Corporation (Benteler), located 
in Duncan, South Carolina. The notification conforming to the 
requirements of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.22) was 
received on June 28, 2016.
    Benteler already has authority to produce automotive suspension and 
body components within Subzone 38F. The current request would add one 
finished product to the existing scope of authority. Pursuant to 15 CFR 
400.14(b), additional FTZ authority would be limited to the specific 
finished product described in the submitted notification (as described 
below) and subsequently authorized by the FTZ Board.
    Production under FTZ procedures could exempt Benteler from customs 
duty payments on the foreign-status materials/components used in export 
production. On its domestic sales, Benteler would be able to choose the 
duty rates during customs entry procedures that apply to instrument 
panel supports (duty rate 2.5%) for the foreign-status materials/
components in the existing scope of authority. Customs duties also 
could possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign-status production 
equipment.
    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 September 7, 2016.
    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.

    Dated: July 25, 2016.
Andrew McGilvray,
Executive Secretary.
