Foreign-Trade Zones Board

[Order No. 1898]


Reorganization of Foreign-Trade Zone 241 Under Alternative Site 
Framework Fort Lauderdale, Florida

    Pursuant to its authority under the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of 
June 18, 1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), the Foreign-Trade 
Zones Board (the Board) adopts the following Order:

    Whereas, the Board adopted the alternative site framework (ASF) (15 
CFR 400.2(c)) as an option for the establishment or reorganization of 
zones;
    Whereas, the City of Fort Lauderdale, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 
241, submitted an application to the Board (FTZ Docket B-48-2012, 
docketed 6/27/2012) for authority to reorganize under the ASF with a 
service area comprised of portions of Broward County, Florida (as 
described in the application), adjacent to the Port Everglades Customs 
and Border Protection port of entry, to modify Site 1 by removing 
acreage, to expand Sites 2 and 4, to remove Site 3 in its entirety from 
the zone, and to categorize FTZ 241's Sites 1, 2 and 4 as magnet sites 
and Site 5 as a usage-driven site;
    Whereas, notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal 
Register (77 FR 39466-39467, 7/3/2012) and the application has been 
processed pursuant to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations; and,

[[Page 27365]]

    Whereas, the Board adopts the findings and recommendations of the 
examiner's report, and finds that the requirements of the FTZ Act and 
the Board's regulations are satisfied with respect to the ASF 
reorganization, modification of Site 1 and removal of Site 3 (but not 
with respect to the proposed expansion of Sites 2 and 4);
    Now, therefore, the Board hereby orders:
    The application to reorganize and expand FTZ 241 under the ASF is 
approved in part (as it relates to the ASF reorganization, modification 
of Site 1 and removal of Site 3), subject to the FTZ Act and the 
Board's regulations, including Section 400.13, to the Board's standard 
2,000-acre activation limit for the zone, to a five-year ASF sunset 
provision for magnet sites that would terminate authority for existing 
Sites 2 and 4 if not activated by April 30, 2018, and to a three-year 
ASF sunset provision for usage-driven sites that would terminate 
authority for Site 5 if no foreign-status merchandise is admitted for a 
bona fide customs purpose by April 30, 2016.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 30th day of May 2013.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, Alternate
