TEXT: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
PART 400 -- [AMENDED]
After publication of the proposed changes, a further change to @ 400.303,
concerning eligible locations for subzones, was received from the Customs Service.
Section 400.303 is proposed to be revised and is published below so that interested
parties can comment.
400.303 Location in relation to ports of entry.
Zones and subzones may be located only in or adjacent to ports of entry. The
definition of "adjacent" is a location within 35 statute miles of a Customs port of entry.
For the purposes of this section, a Customs station designated by Customs Regulations
is considered a port of entry if it is staffed by at least one full-time Customs officer at
the time the application is filed. Because of the special nature of subzones, a more
distant location may be considered "adjacent" if the subzone operator agrees to deliver
the merchandise and its associated Customs documentation to the adjacent port
designated by Customs for inspection before admission to, and upon removal from,
the subzone, and gives bond as required by the U.S. Customs Service to guarantee
safe delivery and compliance with U.S. laws and regulations.
Dated: April 13, 1983.
