Foreign-Trade Zone 23, Erie County, NY; Request for Manufacturing of Laser 
Printers at Subzone 23A, Zerox Plant, Monroe County 
 
TEXT: The County of Erie, New York, grantee of FTZ 23 and Subzone 23A at 
Zerox Corporation's manufacturing plant in Monroe County, New York, which 
has approval to use zone procedures in the production of photo copiers 
(Board Order 220, 48 FR 35479, 8/4/83), requests approval from the Foreign-
Trade Zones Board to extend the use of zone procedures at the Zerox plant 
for the production of laser printers. The request was filed February 
26, 1988. 
 
   Zerox sources less than one-third of the value of the parts for laser 
printers abroad, including motors, power supplies, display units 
incorporating cathode ray tubes, clutches, fans, connectors, conductors, and
fasteners. About one-fourth of the products manufactured at the plant are 
exported.  
 
   Zone procedures would exempt Xerox from Customs duty payments on the 
foreign products used in its exports. On its domestic sales, the company 
would be able to pay duties at the rate applicable to complete laser 
printers. The rate on the printers is 3.7 percent, whereas the rates on the
components range from 0 to 6.2 percent. The company indicates that zone 
procedures for this extended purposes will help improve its international 
competitiveness. 
 
   Comments on the proposed manufacturing operation are invited in writing
from interested persons and organizations. They should be addressed to the
Board's Executive Secretary at the address below and postmarked before 
April 12, 1988.  
 
   A copy of the application is available for public inspection at the 
Office of the Executive Secretary, Foreign-Trade Zones Board, U.S. 
Department of Commerce, Room 1529, 14th and Pennsylvania Avenue, NW., 
Washington, DC 20230.  
 
   Dated: March 2, 1988.
