E9–11394 Filed 5–14–09; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3510–JE–P DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE Foreign-Trade Zones Board Proposal for Changes to the Format of Annual Reports Submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board SUMMARY: The Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) Board is inviting public comment on a staff proposal to revise the format of annual reports that are submitted by zone grantees to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board. The revisions are intended to clarify the information that is being requested and focus on the information that is most important for oversight of the FTZ program. For comparison, the current format for annual reports is available on the FTZ Board’s Web site— accessible via http://www.trade.gov/ ftz—within the ‘‘Already in a Zone?’’ section. Relative to the current format, a number of multiple-part questions have been broken out into separate questions for purposes of clarity and ease of use. In general, the amount of information being requested in the proposed format is reduced relative to the existing format. Part 1: Zone Project Summary 1. Was foreign-status merchandise stored within the zone under zone procedures during the fiscal year? If the answer is no, complete questions 2–3 below: PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 2. Describe the promotion and marketing efforts that are being undertaken to provide local companies with information on using the zone? 3. Has the zone ever been used for the admission and storage of zone status merchandise? If yes, indicate when. If the answer is yes, complete questions 4–12 of Part 1 below for all warehouse and distribution operations within the general-purpose zone and any subzones. In addition, for each general-purpose zone (GPZ) or subzone operation involved in manufacturing/ processing, complete a separate Part 2 (Manufacturing/Processing GPZ and Subzone Operations). 4. Provide a summary of the warehouse and distribution activity that occurred within the zone project. Specifically discuss any developments or trends in shipments or activity and any value added activity that occurred within active zone space. 5. Discuss how the zone project contributes to the local economy and local economic development efforts, including the FTZ impact on local employment, port activity, industrial development, international trade and investment. If applicable, describe in what ways the zone has been used locally by the logistics industry and other companies to address supply chain issues. 6. The general-purpose zone served ___ zone users during the fiscal year. The number employed by zone users within activated general-purpose zone areas was ___ persons. Employment figures should include both direct and contract persons. For part time workers, please report a full time equivalent (e.g., 60 contract employees working for 6 months would equal a full time equivalent of 30 workers). 7. Activity Summary: Provide a list of general-purpose zone sites and indicate the number of acres that are activated at each site. Also indicate if the site is subject to a time or sunset limit. Provide a list of approved subzones and indicate the activation status of each subzone. If the subzone is active, provide the employment (direct + contract) for the subzone. If inactive, indicate if the subzone has lapsed. 8. Movement of Merchandise: This section should include the movement of merchandise for all general-purpose and subzone operations that did not require FTZ Board manufacturing/processing authority. (There is a separate section below where manufacturing/processing operations that occurred within the generalpurpose zone or any subzone will be reported individually.) E:\FR\FM\15MYN1.SGM 15MYN1
