|How is CBP Involved?
CBP (U.S. Customs and Border Protection) handles the day-to-day monitoring of zone
activity. Merchandise is brought into a zone (admitted) on CBP form 214 and is removed from the
zone through CBP entry or transportation under bond procedures. CBP is consulted on every application
for a zone or zone activity. Merchandise in a zone is under customs control and merchandise and
zone records are subject to spot check and other verifications at any time.
After a zone or subzone has been approved by the FTZ Board, the zone operator must activate with CBP.
