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 January 30, 2018. FTZ 81 was approved by the FTZ Board on January 20, 1983 (Board Order 207, 48 FR 4308, January 31, 1983) and expanded on April 12, 1985 (Board Order 302, 50 FR 15948, April 23, 1985) and on June 25, 1997 (Board Order 906, 52 FR 36259, July 7, 1997). The current zone includes the following sites: Site 1 (11 acres)—Port Authority marine terminal, Portsmouth Harbor, Portsmouth; Site 2 (175 acres)— Portsmouth Industrial Park, Lafayette Road, Portsmouth; Site 4 (1,468 acres)— Manchester Airport, 1 Brita Way and 16 Delta Drive, Londonderry; Site 5 (2,095 acres)—Pease International Tradeport, 601 Spaulding Turnpike, Portsmouth; and, Site 6 (45 acres)—UPS Supply Chain Solutions, 52 Pettingill Road, Londonderry. The grantee’s proposed service area under the ASF would be the Counties of Rockingham, Strafford, Carroll (partial), Belknap (partial), Cheshire, Hillsborough, Merrimack, Sullivan and Grafton (partial), New Hampshire, 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 application indicates that the proposed service area is within and adjacent to the Portsmouth and Manchester Customs and Border Protection ports of entry. The applicant is requesting authority to reorganize its existing zone to include E:\FR\FM\02FEN1.SGM 02FEN1
