Kemp, Foreign-Trade Zones Staff, (202) 482– 0862 or via e-mail, christopher_kemp@ita.doc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The Foreign-Trade Zone Application is the vehicle by which individual firms or organizations apply for foreign-trade zone (FTZ) status, subzone status, or expansion of an existing zone. The FTZ Act and Regulations require that an application with a description of the PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 15477 proposed project be made to the FTZ Board (19 U.S.C. 81b and 81f; 15 CFR 400.24–26) before a license can be issued or a zone can be expanded. They also require that applications contain detailed information on facilities, financing, operational plans, proposed manufacturing operations, need, and economic impact. The manufacturing activity in zones, which is primarily conducted in subzones, can involve issues related to domestic industry and trade policy impact. These applications must include specific information on the Customs tariff-related savings that result from zone procedures and the economic consequences of permitting such savings. The FTZ Board requires complete and accurate information on the proposed operation and its economic effects because the regulations authorize the Board to restrict or prohibit operations that are detrimental to the public interest. II. Method of Collection The applications are in paper format. III. Data OMB Control Number: 0625–0139. Form Number: None. Type of Review: Regular submission. Affected Public: State, local, or tribal government; not-for-profit institutions. Estimated Number of Respondents: 145. Estimated Time per Response: 20 to 120 hours, depending on type of application. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 9,180 hours. Estimated Total Annual Costs: $0. IV. Request for Comments Comments are invited on (a) whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden (including hours and costs) of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or forms of information technology. Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for OMB approval of this information collection; they also will become a matter of public record.
