Foreign-Trade Zones Board

The Foreign-Trade Zones Board of the U.S. Department of Commerce oversees the foreign-trade zone program and appoints grantees of the various zones throughout the country.  Applications are submitted to the FTZ Board by the grantee for foreign-trade zone status. 

Northeast Ohio has two foreign-trade zones, FTZ 40 and FTZ 181.  The Port of Cleveland has the grant of authority for FTZ 40.  NEOTEC has the grant of authority for FTZ 181, and serves as administrator of both zones.
