Pursuant to its authority under the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of June 18, 1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) adopts the following Order:

Whereas, the Board adopted the alternative site framework (ASF) (15 CFR 400.2(c)) as an option for the establishment or reorganization of zones;

Whereas, the City of Phoenix, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 75, submitted an application to the Board (FTZ Docket B-87-2012, docketed 12-07-2012) for authority to expand the zone under the ASF to include an additional magnet site, proposed Site 9, within the Phoenix, Arizona U.S. Customs and Border Protection port of entry;
