Foreign-Trade Zones Board

[Order No. 1746]

Reorganization of Foreign-Trade Zone 46 Under Alternative Site 
Framework; Cincinnati, OH

    Pursuant to its authority under the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of 
June 18, 1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), the Foreign-Trade 
Zones Board (the Board) adopts the following Order:

    Whereas, the Board adopted the alternative site framework (ASF) (74 
FR 1170, 01/12/09; correction 74 FR 3987, 01/22/09; 75 FR 71069-71070, 
11/22/10) as an option for the establishment or reorganization of 
general-purpose zones;
    Whereas, the Greater Cincinnati Foreign-Trade Zone Inc., grantee of 
Foreign-Trade Zone 46, submitted an application to the Board (FTZ 
Docket 41-2010, filed 5/21/2010) for authority to reorganize under the 
ASF with a service area of Hamilton, Butler, Warren, Brown and Clermont 
Counties, Ohio, in and adjacent to the Cincinnati Customs and Border 
Protection port of entry, FTZ 46's existing Sites 3, 4 and 5 would be 
categorized as magnet sites, and the grantee proposes an initial usage-
driven site (Site 6);
    Whereas, notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal 
Register (75 FR 30774-30775, 6/2/2010) and the application has been 
processed pursuant to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations; and,
    Whereas, the Board adopts the findings and recommendations of the 
examiner's report, and finds that the requirements of the FTZ Act and 
Board's regulations are satisfied, and that the proposal is in the 
public interest;
    Now, therefore, the Board hereby orders:
    The application to reorganize FTZ 46 under the alternative site 
framework is approved, subject to the FTZ Act and the Board's 
regulations, including Section 400.28, to the Board's standard 2,000-
acre activation limit for the overall general-purpose zone project, to 
a five-year ASF sunset provision for magnet sites that would terminate 
authority for Sites 3 and 5 if not activated by March 31, 2016, and to 
a three-year ASF sunset provision for usage-driven sites that would 
terminate authority for Site 6 if no foreign-status merchandise is 
admitted for a bona fide customs purpose by March 31, 2014.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 3rd day of March 2011.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, Alternate 
Chairman, Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
