This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
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 Port of Tacoma, Washington, grantee of FTZ 86, has made application to the Board for authority to establish special-purpose subzone status at the manufacturing facilities (9- and 13-inch television/video cassette recorder combination units) of Matsushita Kotobuki Electronics Industries of America, Inc. (MKA), located at sites in Vancouver, Washington (FTZ Docket 46-2000, filed 8/2/2000);
Whereas, notice inviting public comment has been given in the Federal Register (65 FR 49536, 8/14/2000); and,
Whereas, the Board adopts the findings and recommendations of the examiner's report, and finds that the requirements of the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations are satisfied, and that approval of the application would be in the public interest;
Now, Therefore, the Board hereby grants authority for subzone status at the 9- and 13-inch TV/VCR unit manufacturing facilities of Matsushita Kotobuki Electronics Industries of America, Inc. in Vancouver, Washington (Subzone 86E), at the locations described in the application, subject to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations, including § 400.28.Start Signature
Signed at Washington, DC, this 8th day of June 2001.
Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, Alternate Chairman, Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
