The Foreign-Trade Zones Board has authorized production activity under zone procedures on a limited basis at the Flemish Master Weavers facility within subzone 186A in Sanford, Maine, which is used for the production of area rugs using polypropylene and polyester yarns. This authorization is also subject to a restriction requiring that foreign-status polypropylene and polyester yarns (HTSUS subheadings 5402.59 and 5402.33) be admitted to the subzone in privileged foreign status.

The FTZ Board has approved the reorganization of FTZ 172 to include a service area of Oneida County, N.Y., adjacent to the Syracuse U.S. Customs and Border Protection port of entry. Sites 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 and subzone 172A will be removed from the zone.

The FTZ Board has approved a reorganization of FTZ 70 that will expand the service area of the zone to include Livingston County and a portion of Lenawee County, Mich., adjacent to the Detroit CBP port of entry.
