The Foreign-Trade Zones Board has provided notice of the following actions.

Merging New York Zones. The FTZ Board received from the City of New York, grantee of FTZs 1 and 111, a request for authority to merge these zones and reorganize them under the alternative site framework. The proposed service area of the combined zone would be New York, Bronx, Kings, Queens and Richmond counties in New York, within and adjacent to the New York/Newark and John F. Kennedy International Airport U.S. Customs and Border Protection ports of entry. Comments on this proposal are due no later than Dec. 24.

New Subzones. The FTZ Board has approved the establishment of subzone 28G at the Talbots Import LLC facility in Lakeville, Mass., and subzone 123F at the Pillow Kingdom Inc. facility in Aurora, Calif.

Subzone Request. The FTZ Board has received from the City and County of San Francisco, grantee of FTZ 3, a request for subzone status for the Phillips 66 Company facility in Rodeo, Calif. Comments are due no later than Dec. 9. A notification of proposed production activity has also been submitted and will be published separately for public comment.

Notification of Production Activity. The FTZ Board has received a notification of proposed production activity at the Whirlpool Corporation facilities within subzone 8I in Clyde and Green Springs, Ohio. Whirlpool already has authority to produce standard and high-capacity washing machines using certain imported components at these facilities, and the current request would add foreign-status components to the scope of authority. Comments on this notification are due no later than Dec. 9.
