Texas Subzone. The Foreign-Trade Zones Board has received from the Port of Corpus Christi Authority, grantee of FTZ 122, a request to expand subzone 122J to include an adjacent 6.7 acre parcel. No additional authorization for production activity has been requested at this time. Comments on this request are due no later than Oct. 31.

Pharmaceuticals. The FTZ Board has received from MSD International GMBH (Puerto Rico Branch) LLC, operator of subzone 7G, a notification of proposed production activity for its facility within subzone 7G in Las Piedras, Puerto Rico. MSD currently has authority to produce certain pharmaceutical products and their intermediates within subzone 7G and the current request would add a finished pharmaceutical product and foreign status materials/components to the scope of authority. Comments on this request are due no later than Oct. 31.

Industrial Sensors. The FTZ Board has approved an expansion of production authority at the SICK Inc. facility within FTZ 119 in Savage, Minn. SICK already had authority to produce photo-electronic industrial automation sensors within subzone 119G and the FTZ Board has now added new finished products (encoders, zone control sensors, proximity sensors, integrated optical readers, data process monitoring/reporting systems) and certain foreign components and materials to the scope of authority.
