U.S. Foreign-Trade Zones Board


Reference List: FTZ State Enabling Legislation

Organizations submitting applications to the FTZ Board must be qualified to apply for a zone grant of authority under the laws of the state in which the zone is to be located. To help grantees to locate their state enabling legislation, the FTZ Staff has compiled the list below as a reference. This list should be useful to grantees in the preparation of applications. However, this reference list is provided only as a courtesy -- with no guarantees made regarding the accuracy or completeness of the information -- and it remains the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that information submitted to the FTZ Board is complete and accurate. In that context, a grantee drafting an application for submission to the FTZ Board has the responsibility of confirming that the application includes a copy of the most recent enabling legislation applicable to the zone.

Note: The reference list below incorporates legal citations from records of applications previously submitted to the FTZ Board and independent research by the FTZ Staff into the availability of specific state laws via the internet (as of June 2008).
