PPC Broadband, Inc. (Fiber Optic Cables); Dewitt, New York, has been approved for Foreign-Trade Zone procedures subject to restrictions excluding foreign textile inputs.

On October 8, 2020, PPC Broadband, Inc., (PPC Broadband) submitted a notification of proposed production activity to the FTZ Board for its facility within FTZ 90, in Dewitt, New York. The FTZ Board authorized the production activity described in the notification (see 86 FR 9051) on a limited basis, subject to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations, including Section 400.14, and further subject to restrictions requiring that foreign-status tight buffered fiber be admitted to the zone in privileged foreign status (19 CFR 146.41) and that aramid yarn, swellcoat blockers or equivalent be admitted to the zone in domestic/duty paid status (19 CFR 146.43).

This follows the approval, last month of FTZ procedures for OFS Fitel subject to the same limitation relating to textile articles available from domestic sources.
