  • Start Preamble

    Takasago International Corp. (U.S.A.) (Takasago) submitted a notification of proposed production activity to the FTZ Board for its facility in Harriman, New York. The notification conforming to the requirements of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.22) was received on April 30, 2018.

    Takasago already has authority to produce fragrances within Site 10 of FTZ 37. The current request would add additional foreign status components of essential oils and aromatic chemicals to the scope of authority. Pursuant to 15 CFR 400.14(b), additional FTZ authority would be limited to the specific foreign-status components described in the submitted notification (as described below) and subsequently authorized by the FTZ Board.

    Production under FTZ procedures could exempt Takasago from customs duty payments on the foreign-status components used in export production. On its domestic sales, for the foreign-status components noted below, Start Printed Page 20034Takasago would be able to choose the duty rate during customs entry procedures that applies to fragrances (duty-free). Takasago 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.
