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, Jackson County, Oregon, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 206, has made application to the Board for authority to establish special-purpose subzone status at the manufacturing, warehousing, and distribution facilities (X-ray film, color paper, digital media, inkjet paper, entertainment imaging, and health imaging) of the Eastman Kodak Company, located in White City and Medford, Oregon (FTZ Docket 38-2005, filed 8/5/2005; amended 5/15/2006);
Whereas, notice inviting public comment has been given in the Federal Register (70 FR 48535-48536, 8/18/2005); 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;
Now, therefore, the Board hereby grants authority for subzone status for activity related to X-ray film, color paper, digital media, inkjet paper, entertainment imaging, and health imaging at the manufacturing, warehousing, and distribution facilities of the Eastman Kodak Company, located in White City and Medford, Oregon (Subzone 206A), as described in the amended application and Federal Register notice, subject to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations, including Section 400.28, and further subject to a restriction that privileged foreign status (19 CFR Part 146.41) shall be elected:
