Foreign-Trade Zones Board
[Docket A(32b1)-15-95)

Foreign-Trade Zone 18, San Jose, CA Request for Manufacturing
Authority Silicon Valley Solutions, Inc. (Personal Computers) San Jose,

    An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board
(the Board) by San Jose Distribution Services, operator of FTZ 18,
pursuant to Sec. 400.32(b)(1)(ii) of the Board's regulations (15 CFR
part 400), requesting authority on behalf of Silicon Valley Solutions,
Inc. (SVS), to manufacture personal computers for export within FTZ 18.
It was formally filed on August 8, 1995.
    SVS is planning to assemble personal computers using certain
components that would be sourced abroad, including monitors, keyboards,
mouses, floppy disc drives, and power supplies. Of these, only monitors
(HTSUS 8471.92.32) and mouses (HTSUS 8471.92.90) are dutiable (3.7%).
Zone procedures would exempt the company from Customs duty payments on
the foreign products used in its exports. The request indicates that
the savings from zone procedures would help encourage the proposed
export activity.
    Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions
(original and 3 copies) shall be addressed to the Board's Executive
Secretary at the address below. The closing period for their receipt is
[30 days from date of publication]. Rebuttal comments in response to
material submitted during the foregoing period may be submitted during
the subsequent 15-day period (to October 6, 1995).
    A copy of the request will be available for public inspection at
the following location: Office of the Executive Secretary, Foreign-
Trade Zones Board, Room 3716, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th &
Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20230.

    Dated: August 9, 1995.
John J. Da Ponte, Jr.,
Executive Secretary.
