A request has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) by the Jefferson County Industrial Development Authority (JCIDA), grantee of FTZ 109, to amend its application requesting authority on behalf of North American Tapes (NAT), to manufacture athletic tape under FTZ procedures within FTZ 109. The application was docketed under docket number 48-2011 on July 15, 2011 (76 FR 43259, 7-20-2011).

The NAT facility (25 employees) is located within FTZ 109 at 22430 Fisher Road in the Jefferson County Industrial Park (Site 1). The facility is used to produce pressure-sensitive adhesive athletic tape with textile fabric backing material for the U.S. market and export.

JCIDA has now amended the application to provide updated and corrected information regarding the domestic availability and technical specifications of the textile fabric that would be used as an input to NAT's manufacturing process.
