Approval of Foreign Trade Subzone Status; VF Jeanswear; Hackleburg, Alabama
On September 19, 2013, the Executive Secretary of the Foreign-Trade Zones ("FTZ") Board docketed an application submitted by the Huntsville-Madison County Airport Authority, grantee of FTZ 83, requesting subzone status subject to the existing activation limit of FTZ 83 on behalf of VF Jeanswear in Hackleburg, Alabama. No authorization for production activity was been requested. Today the FTZ Board published in the Federal Register approval of the application. Note that as stated in the application, the subzone will be used for warehousing, labeling, and distribution, and, therefore, will result only in duty deferral, not duty avoidance.
