Foreign-Trade Zone (FTZ) 167--Brown County, Wisconsin, 
Notification of Proposed Production Activity, Polaris Industries, Inc., 
(Spark-Ignition Internal Combustion Engines), Osceola, Wisconsin

    Polaris Industries, Inc. (Polaris), operator of Subzone 167B, 
submitted a notification of proposed production activity to the FTZ 
Board for its facility in Osceola, Wisconsin. The notification 
conforming to the requirements of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 
CFR 400.22) was received on April 4, 2017.
    Polaris already has authority to produce spark-ignition internal 
combustion engines to equip snowmobiles, all-terrain vehicles, and 
motorcycles within Subzone 167B. The current request would add finished 
spark-ignition internal combustion engines for on-road vehicles and 
foreign status components to the scope of authority. Pursuant to 15 CFR 
400.14(b), FTZ activity 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.
