Guidance on Providing Local Public Notice
The FTZ Regulations require that the applicant publish a notice in a local newspaper for applications to the FTZ Board submitted under
Sections 400.21, 400.24(b) and 400.25 of the FTZ Board's regulations. The local notice should:
- Be published in a general circulation newspaper
- Be published in time to allow at least 15 days before the close of the comment period for the application.
- The text of the notice can be the same as that published by the FTZ staff in the Federal Register or can be
simplified as long as a summary of the proposal is included along with instructions on how to find more detailed information.
- A copy of the local notice should be provided to the FTZ staff to include in the case record
