The City of Phoenix, grantee of FTZ 75, submitted a notification of proposed production activity to the FTZ Board on behalf of Honeywell Aerospace, Inc (Honeywell), located in Phoenix and Tempe, Arizona. The notification conforming to the requirements of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.22) was received on May 3, 2013.
The Honeywell facilities are located within Subzone 75J. The facilities are used for the production of aircraft engines, systems and components. 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 Honeywell from customs duty payments on the foreign status components used in export production. On its domestic sales, Honeywell would be able to choose the duty rates during customs entry procedures that apply to: Turbofan engines; turbo-propeller engines; turbo-shaft engines; auxiliary power units; rotor assemblies; tube assemblies; hydraulic actuators; air-turbine starters; wheel turbines; air-turbine pump systems; duct temperature limiters; air/oil heat exchangers; oil cooler fans; fuel filter assemblies; shutoffs and regulators valves; dual 3-way valves; check valves; pneumatic overpressure outline valves; regulating and shutoff pressure valves; center-drive units; shaft assemblies; bearing housings; gearbox assemblies; shaft couplings; spur gears; tertiary outline locks; power supplies; outline brake modules; data transmitters; XM receivers; XM antennas; head-up displays and components; electrical control panels; EPROMS; microcircuits; air-data transducers; axles with wheel and brake assemblies; aeronautical instruments; duct temperature sensors; flow-sensing modules; air/outflow-sensing modules; air-data modules; thermo switches; and, temperature control valves (duty rate free—3.30%) for the foreign status inputs noted below. Customs duties also could Start Printed Page 27952possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign status production equipment.
