Manufacturing Alabama, LLC; Subzone 222A (Motor Vehicles); Montgomery, 

    The Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce, grantee of FTZ 222,

Alabama. The notification conforming to the requirements of the 
regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.22) was received on June 5, 
    HMMA already has authority to produce light-duty passenger sedans, 
sport utility vehicles, minivans and related engines within Subzone 
222A. The current request would add certain 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

payments on the foreign status components used in export production. On 
its domestic sales, HMMA would be able to choose the duty rate during 
customs entry procedures that applies to passenger motor vehicles and 
spark ignition and diesel engines (duty rate--2.5%) for the foreign-
status inputs noted below and in the existing scope of authority. 
Customs duties also could possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign 
status production equipment.
    The components sourced from abroad include: Plastic tape/bags/caps; 
rubber hoses; owner's manuals; roller chains; screwdrivers; spark-
ignition engines; hydraulic motors; vacuum pumps; pump parts;

apparatus; capacitors; electrical switches; fuse boxes; computer/
bracket assemblies; coaxial cables; coils; brakes; brake parts;

ranges from free to 6.2%).

shall be addressed to the FTZ Board's Executive Secretary at the
