Foreign-Trade Zone (FTZ) 38--Charleston, South Carolina; 
Notification of Proposed Production Activity; BMW Manufacturing 
Company, LLC (Passenger Motor Vehicles); Spartanburg, South Carolina

    BMW Manufacturing Company, LLC (BMW MC) submitted a notification of 
proposed production activity to the FTZ Board for its facility in 
Spartanburg, South Carolina. The notification conforming to the 
requirements of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.22) was 
received on April 21, 2021.
    BMW MC already has authority to produce gasoline and diesel-powered 
motor vehicles, gasoline-powered hybrid plug-in electric motor 
vehicles, motor vehicle bodies, stamped body parts, and lithium ion 
batteries within Subzone 38A. The current request would add diesel-
powered hybrid plug-in electric motor vehicles to the scope of 
authority. Pursuant to 15 CFR 400.14(b), additional FTZ authority would 
be limited to the specific finished product described in the submitted 
notification (as described below) and subsequently authorized by the 
FTZ Board.
    Production under FTZ procedures could exempt BMW MC from customs 
duty payments on the foreign-status materials/components used in export 
production. On its domestic sales, for the foreign-status materials/
components in the existing scope of authority, BMW MC would be able to 
choose the duty rates during customs entry procedures that apply to 
diesel powered hybrid plug-in electric motor vehicles (duty rate 2.5%). 
BMW MC 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.
    There are no new materials/components included in this 
notification.
    Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions 
shall be addressed to the Board's Executive Secretary and sent to: 
ftz@trade.gov. The closing period for their receipt is June 9, 2021.
    A copy of the notification will be available for public inspection 
in the ``Reading Room'' section of the Board's website, which is 
accessible via www.trade.gov/ftz.
    For further information, contact Christopher Wedderburn at 
Chris.Wedderburn@trade.gov.

    Dated: April 26, 2021.
Andrew McGilvray,
Executive Secretary.
