Foreign-Trade Zone (FTZ) 29--Louisville, Kentucky; Notification 
of Proposed Production Activity; Hitachi Automotive Systems Americas, 
Inc. (Automotive Fuel Injection Assemblies); Harrodsburg, Kentucky

    The Louisville and Jefferson County Riverport Authority, grantee of 
FTZ 29, submitted a notification of proposed production activity to the 
FTZ Board on behalf of Hitachi Automotive Systems Americas, Inc. 
(Hitachi), located in Harrodsburg, Kentucky. The notification 
conforming to the requirements of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 
CFR 400.22) was received on February 6, 2017.
    Hitachi already has authority to produce automotive components 
within Subzone 29F of FTZ 29. The current request would add an 
additional finished product to the 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 Hitachi from customs 
duty payments on the foreign-status materials/components used in export 
production. On its domestic sales, Hitachi would be able to choose the 
duty rates during customs entry procedures that apply to fuel rail 
assemblies (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 April 3, 2017.
    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: February 15, 2017.
Andrew McGilvray,
Executive Secretary.
