Foreign-Trade Zone (FTZ) 47--Boone County, Kentucky; Notification 
of Proposed Production Activity; Valeo North America, Inc.; (Automotive 
Clutch and Compressor Assemblies); Winchester, Kentucky

    Valeo North America, Inc. (Valeo) submitted a notification of 
proposed production activity to the FTZ Board for its facility in 
Winchester, Kentucky within FTZ 47. The notification conforming to the 
requirements of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.22) was 
received on September 19, 2017.
    The applicant has also submitted a separate application for FTZ 
designation at the Valeo facility under FTZ 47. The facility is used 
for the final assembly of clutch and compressor components for the 
automotive industry. Pursuant to 15 CFR 400.14(b), FTZ activity would 
be limited to the specific foreign-status materials and 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 Valeo from customs 
duty payments on the foreign-status components used in export 
production. On its domestic sales, for the foreign-status materials/
components noted below, Valeo would be able to choose the duty rates 
during customs entry procedures that apply to: Compressor assemblies 
for motor vehicles; and, electromagnetic clutch assemblies (duty rate 
ranges from free to 3.1%). Valeo would be able to avoid duty on 
foreign-status components which become scrap/waste. Customs duties also 
could possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign-status production 
equipment.
    The components and materials sourced from abroad include: 
Electromagnetic clutch assemblies; compressor bodies and housings; 
compressor coils; rotors; compressor armatures; compressor fittings; 
stainless steel bolts; stainless steel screws; and, electromagnetic 
shims and snap rings (duty rate ranges from free to 8.5%).
    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 November 7, 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.

    Dated: September 22, 2017.
