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 Greater Detroit Foreign-Trade Zone, Inc., grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 70, has made application to the Board for authority to establish a special-purpose subzone at the silicones and ceramics products manufacturing and warehousing facilities of Wacker Chemical Corporation, located in Adrian, Michigan (FTZ Docket 29-2003, filed 6/18/03);
Whereas, notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register (68 FR 38009, 6-26-03) and the comment period was extended (68 FR 51549, 8/27/03; 68 FR 54887, 9/19/03; 68 FR 61790, 10/30/03; 68 FR 67400, 12/2/03; 68 FR 68590 12/9/03); 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 would be satisfied, and that approval of the application would be in the public interest if approval is subject to the conditions listed below;
Now, therefore, the Board hereby grants authority for subzone status at the silicones and ceramics products manufacturing and warehousing facilities of Wacker Chemical Corporation, located in Adrian, Michigan (Subzone 70U), at the location described in the application, and subject to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations, including § 400.28, and subject to the following conditions:
1. Privileged foreign status (19 CFR Part 146.41) shall be elected on foreign merchandise that falls under HTSUS Subheadings #3204 and #3206.
2. Foreign merchandise admitted to the zone that falls under HTSUS Subheadings #3204.14, #3204.17 and #3206.49 shall be limited to 300,000 KG per year.Start Signature
Signed at Washington, DC, this 22nd day of April, 2004.
James J. Jochum,
Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, Alternate Chairman, Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
