FTZ Board OKs Expanded Authority at Print Cartridge Plant, Considers Expansion of Oklahoma Zone
The Foreign-Trade Zones Board has approved an application requesting authority for Epson Portland Inc. to elect non-privileged foreign status on certain foreign-sourced materials used at its Portland, Ore., facilities (subzone 45F) in producing ink subsequently incorporated into the company’s production of inkjet printer cartridges. This approval is subject to a requirement that EPI elect privileged foreign status on all pigment dispersions in plastics (HTSUS 3206.49.10) admitted to the subzone.
The FTZ Board has received from the Port Authority of Greater Oklahoma City, grantee of FTZ 106, a request to add to this zone an additional magnet site at the Iron Horse Industrial Park in Shawnee, adjacent to the Oklahoma City U.S. Customs and Border Protection port of entry. Comments on this application are due no later than Oct. 14.
