How to Check the Status of a Case

How to Check the Status of a Case

You can check the status of cases on the FTZ webpage. The case status available on the web is the most up to date and detailed information available.

There is no additional case-specific information that can be provided by the FTZ Staff. 

The case status is located in the heading of the Federal Register notice (image shown below).

To find a Federal Register notice:

  • First click on the link below to the Online FTZ Information System (OFIS)
  • Then click on “Federal Register Notices” in the left menu under “Public Information”
  • You can then select the year, the company or the zone to find the notice.
