What is a foreign trade zone

A Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) is an isolated, policed, and enclosed area that is in or adjacent to a port of entry and is considered outside customs territory of the United States. A FTZ is a restricted access site authorized by the Foreign Trade Zone's Board which consists of the Secretary of Commerce and the Secretary of the Treasury. Through regulations of the Customs and Border Protection (CBP), FTZs are secured areas under CBP supervision and are located in or near a CBP port of entry. CBP entry procedures do not apply, although FTZs are within the territory and jurisdiction of the United States.
