A Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) is a restricted access site authorized by the Foreign Trade Zones Board, which consists of the Secretary of Commerce and the Secretary of the Treasury. FTZs, upon activation under regulations of the U.S. Customs Service, are secured areas under U.S. Customs supervision and are located in or near a U.S. Customs recognized port of entry. Customs entry procedures do not apply even though FTZs are within the territory and jurisdiction of the United States.
