The application was submitted pursuant to the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a–81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR Part 400). It was formally filed on June 29, 2011. FTZ 215 was approved by the Board on July 26, 1996 (Board Order 835, 61 FR 42832–42833, 08/19/96). The current zone project includes the following site: Site 1 (1,893 acres)— Sebring Regional Airport complex, 128 Authority Lane, Sebring, Florida. The grantee’s proposed service area under the ASF would be DeSoto, Glades, Hardee, Hendry, Highlands and Okeechobee Counties and the Cities of Belle Glade and Pahokee, Florida, as described in the application. If approved, the grantee would be able to serve sites throughout the service area based on companies’ needs for FTZ designation. The proposed service area is within and adjacent to the Port Manatee Customs and Border Protection port of entry. The applicant is requesting authority to reorganize its existing zone project to include its existing site as a ‘‘magnet’’ site. The ASF allows for the possible exemption of one magnet site from the ‘‘sunset’’ time limits that generally apply to sites under the ASF, and the applicant proposed that Site 1 be so exempted. No usage-driven sites are being requested at this time. In accordance with the Board’s regulations, Kathleen Boyce of the FTZ Staff is designated examiner to evaluate and analyze the facts and information presented in the application and case record and to report findings and recommendations to the Board.
