FTZ Grantee Outreach Session Slated for Feb. 8 in Washington
The Foreign-Trade Zones Board has scheduled a free FTZ grantee outreach event in Washington, D.C., on Feb. 8, the day after the conclusion of an FTZ-related industry conference there. The morning session will include an update on revised regulations and may also encompass a dialogue with grantees (including ways the FTZ program could be improved to assist grantees) and training on key aspects of the FTZ program, including grantees’ responsibilities under the FTZ Act and regulations. The afternoon session will involve demonstrations, discussions and assistance on use of the new Online FTZ Information System that grantees will be using to submit their annual reports and update key information about their zones. The FTZB will also try to accommodate a discussion of any other topics of interest to grantees. RSVPs will be required and should be sent by phone (202-482-2862) or email no later than Feb. 6.
