temporary site, in Phoenix, within the Phoenix Customs port of entry, the 
Board, finding that the requirements of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as 
amended, and the Board's regulations are satisfied, and that the proposal 
is in the public interest, approves the applications.

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.
