EC FTZ Foreign Trade Zones
Effective May 6, 2019, applicants should submit applications and requests to the FTZ Board solely in electronic form via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. This applies to all types of requests, including minor boundary modifications and production notifications.
Applicants should note that the existing fees for certain types of applications will continue to apply. Applicable fees are detailed in the pages specific to individual application types within the “How to Apply” section of our website (accessible via www.trade.gov/ftz). For payment of fees, checks will need to be mailed to the FTZ Board.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact our office’s regional representative who covers FTZs in your state. Contact information for the regional representatives is available under the “Contact Us” section of our website

|This list of open comment periods on pending FTZ Board cases is provided as a courtesy. The individual notices available through the Federal Register -- accessible via http://www.gpoaccess.gov/fr/ -- will continue to be the documents of record in this regard, and will still be available in the Federal Register on the morning they are published. This list will be kept as up-to-date as possible but a small lag time (a day to two, potentially) may occur between the time a notice is published in the Federal Register and its appearance on this list. However, all open comment periods should be listed here well in advance of their end dates.|
