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, notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register (66 FR 21739, 5/1/01); 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 is in the public interest;
Now, therefore, the Board hereby grants authority for subzone status at the chemicals products manufacturing and warehousing facilities of E.I. duPont de Nemours and Company, Inc., located in Circleville, Ohio (Subzone 138F), at the location described in the application, and subject to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations, including § 400.28.Start Signature
