Bipartisan Congressional Group Ask for GAO Review of FTZ Program, Especially at Relating to Textiles

On August 22, 2016, a bipartisan group of United States Senators and one United States Representative, wrote to the Government Accountability Office ("GAO") requesting a GAO review of the Foreign-Trade Zones Board's ("FTZ Board") process for evaluating Foreign-Trade Zone applications.

Specific they request that the GAO conduct a review of FTZ Board processes and implementation of the regulations in cases involving textile inputs that includes, but is not limited to, the following:

1) The review and evaluation of all of the required factors in the chapeau of Section 400.27;

2) The review and evaluation of the threshold tests contained in Section 400.27(a) of the regulations;

3) The review and evaluation of the net economic effect test in Section 400.27(b) of the regulations;

4) The role of other offices or agencies such as the Commerce Department Office of Textiles and Apparel (OTEXA) in the FTZ Board's evaluation.

The request was submitted by Senator Amy Klobuchar Amy [Dem. Minnesota], Senator Al Franken [Dec., Minnesota], Senator Pat Roberts [Rep., Kansas], Senator Cory Gardner [Rep., Colorado], and Representative Tom Emmer [Rep., Minnesota, 6th].

U.S.-Chile FTA to Allow 3-Country Filament Rayon in Certain Woven Fabrics

On September 23, 2016, the Committee for the Implementation of Texile Agreements ("CITA") released (Publication Number: 4632 Investigation Number: U.S.-Chile FTA-103-029) Probable Economic Effect of Certain Modifications to the U.S.-Chile FTA Rules of Origin.

U.S. negotiators have reached agreement in principle with representatives of the government of Chile on certain modifications to the ROOs in Chapter 3 and Annex 4.1 of the Agreement.

The current Chile FTA rule allows woven fabrics of artificial filament yarns (including rayon yarns) classified in heading 5408 to receive the preferential duty treatment only (1) if they are made with originating artificial filament yarns (or with originating cotton, wool/fine animal hair, or other manmade filament yarns) and (2) if all other non-originating inputs are classified in other tariff chapters.

The proposed modification would create a separate rule for fabrics classified in subheadings 5408.22–5408.23. The modification would be liberalizing because it would allow covered dyed and yarn-dyed woven fabrics to be eligible for preferential duty treatment under the Chile FTA even if they are made of non-originating rayon filament yarns. However, even for those fabrics classified in subheadings 5408.22–5408.23, the rule would still require non-rayon artificial filament yarns (e.g., cellulose acetate) or any other manmade fiber filament yarns to be originating in order to qualify for the FTA preferences. Moreover, the existing rule’s criteria would remain the same for fabrics classified in HTS subheadings 5408.10–5408.21 and 5408.24–5408.34, even though new individual ROOs would be established for these two groups of HTS provisions.

The proposed modification would likely have a negligible effect on U.S. imports under the Chile FTA and on total U.S. imports. In 2015, 74 percent of U.S. imports from Chile under subheadings 5408.22–5408.23 qualified for the preferential rate of duty under current Chile FTA provisions. The trade-weighted average tariff rate on U.S. imports from Chile was less than 0.5 percent ad valorem for goods covered by the proposed modification. U.S. imports from Chile accounted for less than 0.7 percent of total U.S. imports of these goods in 2015.

The effect of the proposed modification on total U.S. exports would also likely be negligible. The United States did not export the subject fabrics of rayon yarns to Chile in 2015; in 2014, U.S. exports of these goods represented less than 1 percent of total U.S. exports of such goods. Chile imposes a 6 percent ad valorem MFN rate of duty on its imports under subheadings 5408.22 and 5408.23.15

The effect on U.S. production would likely be negligible because the net effect on total U.S. trade in the subject fabrics is expected to be negligible. In addition, U.S. industry sources indicated there is no domestic production of rayon yarns used in the subject fabrics; therefore, there would be no effect on U.S. producers of the subject yarns.

Best Chair Seeks Expanded FTZ Authority

On September 23, 2016 the Foreign Trade Zone Board published in the Federal Register (81 FR 65626) Foreign-Trade Zone (FTZ) 177--Evansville, Indiana; Notification of Proposed Production Activity; Best Chairs, Inc. d/b/a Best Home Furnishings (Upholstered Furniture); Ferdinand, Cannelton and Paoli, Indiana.

Best Chairs, Inc. d/b/a Best Home Furnishings (Best Home) submitted a notification of proposed production activity to the FTZ Board for its facilities in Ferdinand, Cannelton and Paoli, Indiana within FTZ 177. The notification conforming to the requirements of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.22) was received on September 14, 2016.

The Best Home facilities are located within Sites 5, 6, and 7 of FTZ 177 and currently have authority to conduct cut-and-sew activity using certain foreign micro-denier suede upholstery fabrics and polyurethane fabrics to produce upholstered furniture and related parts (upholstery cover sets) on a restricted basis (Board Order 1807 and Doc. B-35-2014). Board Order 1807 authorized the production of upholstered furniture (sofas, sectionals, loveseats, chairs, and recliners) for a five-year period, with a scope of authority that only provides FTZ savings on a limited quantity (2.28 million square yards per year) of foreign origin, micro-denier suede upholstery fabric finished with a hot caustic soda solution process. Doc. B-35-2014 expanded the company's scope of authority to include certain polyurethane fabrics. All foreign upholstery fabrics other than micro-denier suede finished with a hot caustic soda solution process, polyurethane fabrics backed with ground leather, and wet coagulation process, 100 percent polyurethane coated fabrics used in Best Home's production within FTZ 177 are subject to full customs duties.

The current request seeks to extend Best Home's existing FTZ authority indefinitely (with no increase in the company's annual quantitative limit of 2.28 million square yards) and to add foreign-status leather and non-textile foreign-status components to the scope of authority. This request also seeks to clarify certain HTSUS numbers that apply to the company's existing authority for micro-denier suede upholstery fabric finished with a hot caustic soda solution process. Pursuant to 15 CFR 400.14(b), additional FTZ authority 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 Best Home from customs duty payments on the foreign-status components used in export production. On its domestic sales, Best Home would be able to apply the finished upholstery cover set (i.e., furniture part) or finished furniture duty rate (free) for the authorized fabrics and additional components (indicated below). Customs duties also could possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign-status production equipment.

The components sourced from abroad include: Micro-denier suede fabric finished with a hot caustic soda finishing process; upholstery leather; linear actuators and motors; transformers; power adaptors; handset controllers; power cables; and, Y-cables (duty rate ranges from 1.6% to 17.2%). The request indicates that upholstery leather will be admitted to the zone in privileged foreign status (19 CFR 146.41), thereby precluding inverted tariff benefits on upholstery leather. All other foreign, unauthorized upholstery fabrics or other components used in the production activity would continue to be admitted to the zone in domestic (duty paid) status.

Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions shall be addressed to the Board's Executive Secretary at the address below. The closing period for their receipt is November 2, 2016.
