The ASF is an option for grantees for the establishment or reorganization of zones and can permit significantly greater flexibility in the designation of new subzones or ‘‘usagedriven’’ FTZ sites for operators/users located within a grantee’s ‘‘service area’’ in the context of the FTZ Board’s standard 2,000-acre activation limit for a zone. 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 docketed on July 29, 2014. FTZ 63 was approved by the FTZ Board on October 20, 1980 (Board Order 167, 45 FR 71639, 10/29/80). The current zone includes the following site: Site 1 (77.48 acres)—Collington Center Industrial Park, Trade Zone Avenue, Upper Marlboro, Maryland. The grantee’s proposed service area under the ASF would be Prince George’s County, 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 adjacent to the Washington-Dulles Customs and Border Protection port of entry. The applicant is requesting authority to reorganize its existing zone to include E:\FR\FM\04AUN1.SGM 04AUN1
