Friday, June 20, 2014
Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Foreign-Trade Zones Board has authorized on a limited basis a proposed production activity at GE Transportation’s facilities in Lawrence Park and Grove City, Pa., within subzones 247A and 247B. GE Transportation already has authority to produce locomotives; off-highway vehicle wheels, inverters and brake systems; components, spare parts and subassemblies for locomotives and off-highway vehicles; drill equipment; marine equipment; stationary equipment; diesel locomotive engines; engine turbo chargers; power assemblies; other engine assemblies; and engine components and spare parts under zone procedures at these locations. The current request adds finished products and foreign status materials/components to the scope of authority. Inputs classified under HTSUS Chapter 32 and subheadings 4202.12, 5207.10, 5602.90, 5603.94, 5607.50, 5608.19, 5609.00, 5806.31, 5909.00, 5910.00, 6303.92, 6305.20, 6307.90, 7019.19, 7019.51 and 9404.90 will be admitted to the zone in privileged foreign status, thereby precluding inverted tariff benefits on such items. The approved authorization is subject to an additional restriction requiring that diesel engine units classified under subheading 8502.11 also be admitted to the subzones in privileged foreign status.
