Foreign-Trade Zone 18 -- San Jose, California; Application for 
Reorganization  
 
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the City of San Jose, California, grantee of Foreign-Trade 
Zone 18, requesting authority to reorganize its general-purpose 
foreign-trade zone in San Joes, within the San Francisco-Oakland Customs 
port of entry. The application was submitted pursuant to the provisions of 
the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), and the 
regulations of the Board (15 CFR Part 400). It was formally filed on 
july 8, 1983. The applicant is authorized to make this proposal under 
Sections 6300-6304, Chapter 4 of the California Government Code.  
 
   On November 27, 1974, the Board authorized the City of San Jose to 
establish a foreign-trade zone (Board Order 103, 39 FR 42031, 12/4/74). 
The project currently involves 30 acres within the International Business 
Park, San Jose. Temporary modifications were approved on October 18, 1982 
(A-8-82) and March 3, 1983 (A-3-83). 
 
   The City now requests authority to permanently reorganize the zone 
project to relocate the general-purpose zone facility and establish two 
zone annexes. Public zone operations would be transferred from the 
International Business park site to a facility covering 5 acres at 535 
Brennan Avenue, within the Rincon de los Esteros Industrial Redevelopment 
Project, San Jose. A 50,000 square foot warehouse is available for 
storage, inspection and repackaging operations. C.C.B.S. Warehousing 
Services, Inc., operator of the facility, has been designated by the City 
as the new operator of the zone project.  
 
   Annex 1A will be for the precious metals recovery operations of Metal 
Processing Industries, Inc., covering 18,000 square feet in Building A, 
1919 Lundy Avenue, San Jose, which has been in use as a temporary site. The 
company crushes defective computer circuits and recoverd the precious 
metal for a variety of clients. Annex 1B involves the operations of Olympus 
Corporation, covering 35,000 square feet at 2185 Fortune Drive, San Jose, 
which is located on an inactive portion of the original approved zone 
area. The company will use this facility to inspect and adjust imported 
medical endoscopes, and to eventually assemble some of the units. While 
the applicant refers to these sites as annexes, as private manufacturing 
operations, they will be evaluated under the criteria for subzones. 
 
   In accordance with the Board's regulations, an examiners committee has 
been appointed to investigate the application and report to the Board. The 
committee consists of: Dennis Puccinelli (Chairman), Foreign-Trade Zones 
Staff, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, D.C. 20230; Paul Andrews, 
District Director, U.S. Customs Service, Pacific Region, 555 Battery St., 
P.O.B. 2450, San Francisco, CA 94111; and Lt. Colonel Edward M. Lee, Jr., 
District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District San Francisco, 211 Main 
St., San Francisco, CA 94105.  
 
   Comments concerning the proposed zone reorganization are invited in 
writing from interested persons and organizations. They should be addressed 
to the Board's Executive Secretary at the address below and postmarked on 
or before August 12, 1983.
