List of Zones that are Not Permitted to Undertake FTZ Operations

Zone Schedules

The “zone schedules” containing policies and fees1 applied by the various zone grantees can be accessed through the Online FTZ Information System (OFIS): http://ita-web.ita.doc.gov/FTZ/OFISLogin.nsf

In OFIS, click on “Zone and Site Information” and a list of zones sorted by number will come up. Click “Open” next to the zone number. The top part of the screen will then display general zone and grantee information. The zone schedule will be attached as a ".pdf" file on the right side of the page.

1A zone grantee may not assess a fee if the amount of that fee – or the formula used to calculate the amount – are not contained in the grantee’s zone schedule submitted to the FTZ Board.
