FOREIGN-TRADE ZONES BOARD ORDER NO. 20 Part 400-General Regulations Governing Foreign-Trade Zones in the United States, With Rules of Procedure Uniform System of Accounts, Records and Reports for use by Foreign-Trade Zone Grantees
Pursuant to the provisions of section 8 and 16(b) of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of June 18, 1934 (19 USC 81h and 81p(b)), and section 400.1002 of the Foreign-Trade Zones Board regulations (15 CFR Part 400.1002), Part B, paragraph 3 (page 59) of the Board's official publication, "Uniform System of Accounts, Records, and Reports for use by Foreign-Trade Zone Grantees" (FTZ Board Order No. 5; 4 FR 542; Feb. 8, 1939), is hereby amended to read as follows: Period of report. The report shall cover operations from July 1 to June 30 of each fiscal year. It shall be submitted prior to September 1 following the close of each fiscal year. This order shall become effective upon publication in the Federal Register. It is found that compliance with the notice, public rule making procedure, and effective date requirements of the Administrative Procedures Act (Pub. No. 404, 79th Cong.) is unnecessary in connection with the issuance of this regulation because its application is restricted to Foreign-Trade Zone Grantees and it changes only the dates of reports and thus imposes no additional burden on such grantees. Signed at Washington, DC, this 25th day of August 1949. Charles Sawyer Secretary of Commerce, Chairman, Foreign-Trade Zones Board Attest: Thos. E. Lyons Executive Secretary
