Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Foreign-Trade Zones Board has approved an expansion of production authority at the Eastman Kodak Company facility within FTZ 106 in Weatherford, Okla. Eastman Kodak already had authority to produce flexographic finished plates, aluminum finished printing plates, thermo imaging layer, direct imaging recording film sheets, and direct imaging record film rolls within subzone 106F and the Board has now added foreign-status materials and components to the scope of authority.

The FTZ Board has received from the Paducah McCracken County Riverport Authority, grantee of FTZ 294, a notification of proposed production authority at the Mayfield Consumer Products facilities in Mayfield and Hickory, Ky., which are used for the production of candles. The authority is also requesting subzone status for these facilities. Comments on both requests are due no later than Nov. 26.

The FTZ Board has received from the South Jersey Port Corporation, grantee of FTZ 142, a request for authority to reorganize and expand this zone under the alternative site framework. The proposed service area of the zone is Mercer, Burlington, Camden, Gloucester, Salem, Cumberland, and Cape May counties in New Jersey, within and adjacent to the Philadelphia U.S. Customs and Border Protection port of entry. Comments are due no later than Dec. 17.
