Foreign-Trade Zone (FTZ) 177--Evansville, Indiana; Notification 
of Proposed Production Activity; Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indiana, 
Inc. (Automotive Vehicles); Princeton, Indiana

    The Ports of Indiana, grantee of FTZ 177, submitted a notification 
of proposed production activity to the FTZ Board on behalf of Toyota 
Motor Manufacturing Indiana, Inc. (Toyota), located in Princeton, 
Indiana. The notification conforming to the requirements of the 
regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.22) was received on February 
3, 2017.
    Toyota already has authority to produce light-duty passenger 
vehicles (pickup trucks, sport utility vehicles, minivans) within FTZ 
Subzone 177B. The current request would add automotive vehicles to the 
scope of authority. Pursuant to 15 CFR 400.14(b), additional FTZ 
authority would be limited to the specific foreign-status materials/
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 Toyota from customs 
duty payments on the foreign-status materials/components used in export 
production. On its domestic sales, Toyota would be able to choose the 
duty rates during customs entry procedures that apply to passenger 
vehicles and passenger hybrid vehicles (duty rate 2.5%) for the 
foreign-status materials/components noted below and in the existing 
scope of authority. Customs duties also could possibly be deferred or 
reduced on foreign-status production equipment.
    The materials/components sourced from abroad include: Plastic 
labels; hole covers; seal tape; rubber belts; steel self tapping 
screws; steel pins; steel nuts; steel tension springs; steel rings; 
steel clamps; steel clips; steel plugs; aluminum nuts; zinc retainers; 
zinc nuts; fans; lead-acid batteries; nickel-metal hydride batteries; 
lithium-ion batteries; speakers; transmitters; receivers; radio 
switches; televisions; plug assemblies; sockets; switches; plastic 
terminal covers; remotes; controls; keys; insulated electric wires; 
and, cigarette lighters (duty rate ranges from 2.6% to 8.6%).
    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.
