GUIDELINES FOR REQUESTS FOR
REISSUANCE OF FOREIGN-TRADE ZONE GRANTS OF AUTHORITY


-- A zone grantee may request by letter to the FTZ Board for the reissuance of the grant of authority for its zone project to another eligible organization.

-- The letter should include an explanation of the circumstances involved and why the change would be in the public interest; and it should be accompanied by a resolution of the grantee organization.

-- The organization that would become the new grantee also needs to submit a request by letter to the FTZ Board for reissuance of the grant of authority under its sponsorship (may be submitted in same package as grantee request), explaining the public interest basis for the change and accompanied by the following documentation (same as that required in §400.21(d)(1) of FTZ Regulations, 15 CFR Part 400):

-- A current copy of the state enabling legislation regarding FTZs.

-- The sections of the charter (or organization papers) that are pertinent to FTZs.

-- Certified copies of a resolution of the board of the organization authorizing the organization to become a zone grantee and authorizing an official to sign the request.

-- A concurrence letter from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Port Director serving the area.

-- On a case by case basis, other specific information may be needed.
