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 Foreign-Trade Zones Act provides for “ * * * the establishment * * * of foreign-trade zones in ports of entry of the United States, to expedite and encourage foreign commerce, and for other purposes,” and authorizes the Foreign-Trade Zones Board to grant to qualified corporations the privilege of establishing foreign-trade zones in or adjacent to U.S. Customs ports of entry;
Whereas, the Board's regulations (15 CFR part 400) provide for the establishment of special-purpose subzones when existing zone facilities cannot serve the specific use involved, and when the activity results in a significant public benefit and is in the public interest;
Whereas, the Indianapolis Airport Authority, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 72, has made application to the Board for authority to establish special-purpose subzone status at the separator and decanter centrifuge equipment parts warehousing/distribution (non-manufacturing) facility of Alfa Laval Distribution, Inc., located in Indianapolis, Indiana (FTZ Docket 50-98, filed November 5, 1998);
Whereas, notice inviting public comment has been given in the Federal Register (63 FR 63451, November 13, 1998); and,
Whereas, the Board adopts the findings and recommendations of the examiner's report, and finds that the requirements of the FTZ Act and Board's regulations are satisfied, and that approval of the application is in the public interest;
Now, Therefore, the Board hereby grants authority for subzone status at the separator and decanter centrifuge equipment parts warehousing/distribution facility of Alfa Laval Distribution, Inc., located in Indianapolis, Indiana (Subzone 72N), at the location described in the application, and subject to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations, including § 400.28. The scope of authority does not include activity conducted under FTZ procedures that would result in a change in tariff classification.Start Signature
