Polyethylene Pipe. The Foreign-Trade Zones Board has received from AGRU America Charleston LLC a notification of proposed production activity for its facility in North Charleston, South Carolina. AGRU America already has authority to produce high density polyethylene pipe within Site 5 of FTZ 21. The current request would add four foreign status materials/components to the scope of authority. Additional FTZ authority would be limited to the specific foreign-status materials/components described in the submitted notification and subsequently authorized by the FTZ Board. Comments on this request may be submitted by April 23.

Cosmetics. The FTZ Board has approved a proposed production activity request submitted by Estee Lauder Inc. for its facility within FTZ 52 in Melville, New York. Estee Lauder already had authority to manufacture and distribute skin care, fragrance, and cosmetic products within FTZ 52 and the request at hand adds a finished product (hair straightening styling balm) to the scope of authority.
