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, CODEZOL, C.D., grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 163, submitted an application to the Board for authority to expand its zone to include an additional site (Site 10) in the Ponce, Puerto Rico area, adjacent to the Ponce Customs and Border Protection port of entry (FTZ Docket 58-2008, filed 10/08/08);

Whereas, notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register (73 FR 61780, 10/17/08; correction 73 FR 65583, 11/4/08), and the application has been processed pursuant to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations; and,
