A Subzone is a single Foreign Trade Zone site designated for a special purpose, typically manufacturing. Subzones are used when the operations of the firm cannot be accommodated within the existing General Purpose Zone.

In order to gain approval, the company must demonstrate that such a site would be of significant public benefit.

Applying for FTZ Subzones

The application must demonstrate that a significant public benefit will result from the use of Zone procedures by the firm on whose behalf the proposed Subzone is established.

The Foreign Trade Zones Board evaluates the Subzone application based on the net economic benefit to the U.S. economy. Subzone status and the specific benefits granted are dependent upon the specific operations to be conducted under Zone status. The applicant must demonstrate that the proposed use of Zone procedures is in the public’s interest. Subzone status must result in a significant economic benefit for the U.S. economy.
