TEXT: Pursuant to its authority under the Foreign-Trade Zone Act of June 18, 1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), and the Foreign-Trade Zones Board Regulations (15 CFR Part 400), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) adopts the following order:
Whereas, the Regional Industrial Development Corporation of Southwestern Pennsylvania (RIDC), Grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone No. 33, has applied to the Board for authority to expand its general-purpose zone located at RIDC's Park West facility, to include three additional sites within the facility in Allegheny County, near the Greater Pittsburgh International Airport and within the Pittsburgh Customs port of entry;
Whereas, the application was accepted for filing on October 14, 1980, and notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register on October 21, 1980 (45 FR 69525);
Whereas, an examiners committee has investigated the application in accordance with the Board's regulations and recommends approval;
Whereas, the expansion is necessary to provide zone services to new tenants whose operations cannot be accommodated within existing zone space; and
Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended, and the Board's Regulations are satisfied, and that approval of the application is in the public interest;
Now, therefore, the Board hereby orders:
That the Grantee is authorized to expand its zone in accordance with the application filed October 14, 1980. The Grantee shall notify the Executive Secretary of the Board for approval prior to the commencement of any manufacturing operations not mentioned in the application. The authority given in this Order is subject to settlement locally by the District Director of Customs and the District Army Engineer regarding compliance with their respective requirements relating to foreign-trade zones.
Signed at Washington, D.C. this 16th day of March 1981.
