Detroit, Michigan; Resolution and Order Approving Application for a 
Special-Purpose Subzone Proceedings of the Foreign-Trade Zones Board, 
Washington, D.C. 
TEXT: Resolution and Order 
   Pursuant to the authority granted in the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of June 
18, 1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 18a-81u), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board has
adopted the following Resolution and Order: 
   The Board, having considered the matter, hereby orders:  
   After consideration of the application of the Greater Detroit Foreign-
Trade Zone, Inc., grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone No. 70, filed with the 
Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) on August 10, 1981, requesting 
authority to establish a special-purpose subzone for Chyrsler Corporation's 
Jefferson Assembly Plant in Detroit, within the Detroit Customs port of 
entry, the Board, finding that the requirements of the Foreign-Trade Zones 
Act, as amended, and the Board's regulations are satisifed, and that the 
proposal is in the public interest, approves the application. 
   As the proposal involves open space on which buildings may be constructed 
by parties other than the grantee, this approval includes authority to the 
grantee to permit the erection of such buildings, pursuant to @ 400.815 of 
the Board's regulations, as are necessary to carry out the zone proposal, 
providing that prior to its granting such permission it shall have the 
concurrences of the local District Director of Customs, the U.S. Army 
District Engineer, when appropriate, and the Board's Executive Secretary. 
Further, the grantee shall notify the Board's Executive Secretary for 
approval prior to the commencement of any manufacturing operation within 
the zone. The Secretary of Commerce, as Chairman and Executive Officer 
of the Board, is hereby authorized to issue a grant of authority and 
appropriate Board Order. 
Grant of Authority To Establish A Foreign-Trade Subzone In Detroit, 
   Whereas, by an Act of Congress approved June 18, 1934, an Act "To 
provide for the establishment, operation, and maintenace of foreign-trade 
zones in ports of entry of the United States, to expedite and encourage 
foreign commerce, and for other purposes", as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u) 
(the Act), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) is authorized and 
empowered to grant to corporations the privilege of establishing, operating, 
and maintaining foreign-trade zones in or adjacent to ports of entry under 
the jurisdiction of the United States;   

   Whereas, the Board's regulations (15 CFR 400.304) provide for the 
establishment of special-purpose subzones when existing zone facilities 
cannot serve the specific use involved, and where a significant public 
benefit will result; 
   Whereas, the Greater Detroit Foreign-Trade Zone, Inc., grantee of 
Foreign-Trade Zone No. 70, Detroit, Michigan, has made application (filed 
August 10, 1981) in due and proper form to the Board for authority to 
establish a special-purpose subzone at Chrysler Corporation's Jefferson 
Assembly Plant, 12200 East Jefferson Avenue, Detroit; 
   Whereas, notice of said application has been given and published, and 
full opportunity has been afforded all interested parties to be heard; and
   Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the Act and the 
Board's regulations are satisfied; 
   Now, Therefore, in accordance with the application filed August 10, 
1981, the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone at 
Chrysler Corporation's Jefferson Assembly Plant in Detroit, designated on 
the records of the Board as Foreign-Trade Subzone No. 70B at the location 
mentioned above and more particularly described on the maps and drawings 
accompanying the application, said grant of authority being subject to the 
provisions and restrictions of the Act and the Regulations issued 
thereunder, to the same extent as though the same were fully set forth 
herein, and also to the following express conditions and limitations; 
   Operation of the subzone shall be commenced within a reasonable time 
from the date of issuance of the grant, and prior thereto, any necessary 
permits shall be obtained from Federal, State, and municipal authorities.
   Officers and employees of the United States shall have free and 
unrestricted access to and throughout the foreign-trade subzone in the 
performance of their official duties.  

   The grant shall not be construed to relieve responsible parties from 
liability for injury or damage to the person or property of others 
occasioned by the construction, operation, or maintenance of said subzone, 
and in no event shall the United States be liable therefor. 
   The grant is further subject to settlement locally by the District 
Director of Customs and District Army Engineer with the Grantee regarding 
compliance with their respective requirements for the protection of the 
revenue of the United States and the installation of suitable facilities.
   In witness whereof, the Foreign-Trade Zones Board has caused its name 
to be signed and its seal to be affixed hereto by its Chairman and 
Executive Officer at Washington, D.C. this 22nd day of January 1982 
pursuant to Order of the Board. 
   Foreign-Trade Zones Board.

   Chairman and Executive Officer.
