under 15 CFR 400.13(b) by annually advising the FTZ Board's Executive 
Secretary as to significant new contracts with appropriate information 
concerning foreign purchases otherwise dutiable, so that the FTZ Board 
may consider whether any foreign dutiable items are being imported for 
manufacturing in the zone primarily because of FTZ procedures and 
whether the FTZ Board should consider requiring customs duties to be 
paid on such items.
