-- A zone grantee may request by letter to the FTZ Board for the reissuance of
the grant of authority for its zone project to another eligible organization.
-- The letter should include an explanation of the circumstances involved and
why the change would be in the public interest; and it should be
accompanied by a resolution of the grantee organization.
-- The organization that would become the new grantee also needs to submit a
request by letter to the FTZ Board for reissuance of the grant of authority
under its sponsorship (may be submitted in same package as grantee
request), explaining the public interest basis for the change and accompanied
by the following documentation (same as that required in §400.21(d)(1) of FTZ Regulations, 15 CFR Part 400):
-- Certified copy of State enabling legislation authorizing the organization
to make FTZ applications and sponsor FTZ projects. There are two options to satisfy this requirement. You may
submit either 1) a copy certified by an appropriate state official or 2) a copy printed from the web site that
is the state’s official source for such information. For option # 2, the grantee must clearly indicate that the
copy provided is of the relevant legislation in effect at the time of submission to the FTZ Board.
-- The sections of the charter (or organization papers) that are pertinent to FTZs.
-- Certified copies of a resolution of the board of the organization
authorizing the organization to become a zone grantee and authorizing an official to sign the request.
-- A concurrence letter from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Port Director serving the area.
-- On a case by case basis, other specific information may be needed.
