Foreign-Trade Zone 64, Jacksonville, FL; Request for Processing Authority
(Auto Audio Systems)
Friday, November 6, 1992
A request has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) Board pursuant
to § 400.32(b)(1) of the Board's regulations for approval of zone processing
authority within FTZ 64 in Jacksonville, FL, by Trade Zone Operations, Inc.,
zone operator. It was formally filed on October 29, 1992.
The proposed activity involves the installation of foreign-sources auto
audio components and systems (mainly Delco products from Mexico) into
General Motors automobiles assembled abroad. The duty rates for the audio
components range from 3.7 to 8.0 percent. Zone procedures would allow the
company to pay duties on the installed items when formal Customs entry is
made on the finished auto (duty rate 2.5%). The request indicates that zone
procedures would encourage installation activity in the U.S. rather than
Public comment on the proposal is invited from interested parties.
Submissions (original and three copies) shall be addressed to the Board's
Executive Secretary at the address below. The closing period for their
receipt is November 23, 1992.
