ACTION: Extension of time for comments.
SUMMARY: This notice extends the period of time within which interested
members of the public may submit comments concerning Customs interpretation
of the meaning of "exportation" for purposes of the Foreign Trade Zones Act.
A notice inviting the public to comment on Customs reconsideration of its
interpretation of "exportation" was published in the Federal Register on
March 4, 1988 (53 FR 6996), and comments were to have been received on or
before May 3, 1988. Customs has received several requests to extend the
period of time for comments. The requesters state additional time is
required to prepare reasonably responsive comments. Customs believes the
requests have merit. Accordingly, the period of time for the submission of
comments is being extended 45 days.
DATE: Comments are requested on or before June 17, 1988.
ADDRESS: Comments may be submitted to and inspected at the Regulations and
Disclosure Law Branch, U.S. Customs Service, Room 2324, 1301 Constitution

accordance with the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552), @ 1.4,
Treasury Department Regulations (31 CFR 1.4), and @ 103.11(b), Customs
Regulations (19 CFR 103.11(b)), between 9:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on normal
