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 Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Port Authority has the grant of authority for FTZ 40.  NEOTEC has the grant of authority for FTZ 181, and serves as administrator of both zones.
