FOREIGN-TRADE ZONES BOARD ORDER NO. 101 Endorsement of Customs Procedures in Charging for its Services In Foreign-Trade Zones Following Complaint of National Association of Foreign-Trade Zones
Pursuant to its authority under the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of June 18, 1934, as amended (19 USC 81a-81u), and the Foreign-Trade Zones Board Regulations (15 CFR Part 400), the Foreign- Trade Zones Board (the Board) adopts the following order: The Foreign-Trade Zones Board, having considered the complaint of the National Association of Foreign-Trade Zones submitted on April 29, 1974 concerning Customs' method in charging for its zone services, the reports prepared for the Board thereon, including the report and recommendation of the Committee of Alternates on the matter, concludes that the method used by the US Customs Service in charging for its services performed in zones is in conformance with the Foreign-Trade Zones Act (19 USC 81) and the Board's regulations (15 CFR Part 400). In endorsing Customs' method the Board recognizes that zone security is a matter primarily within the Treasury Department's jurisdiction. The Board urges that Department and directs the Executive Secretary to cooperate with zone grantees and operators whenever possible in their efforts to reduce operating costs. Signed at Washington, DC this 10th day of October, 1974. Frederick B. Dent Secretary of Commerce, Chairman and Executive Officer, Foreign-Trade Zones Board Attest: John J. DaPonte, Jr. Acting Executive Secretary
