Resolution and Order Approving the Application of the State of Delaware for
a Special-Purpose Foreign-Trade Subzone for Chrysler Corporation in Newark,
Delaware, Adjacent to the Wilmington Customs Port of Entry  
TEXT: Resolution and Order 
   Proceedings of the Foreign-Trade Zones Board, Washington, D.C.  
   Pursuant to the authority granted in the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of June 
18, 1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-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 State of Delaware, 
submitted through the Delaware Development Office, filed with the Foreign-
Trade Zones Board (the Board) on October 17, 1983, requesting special-
purpose subzone status for the auto manufacturing plant of Chrysler 
Corporation in Newark, Delaware, adjacent to the Wilmington 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 application. 
   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 for Chrysler in 
Newark, Delaware, Adjacent to the Wilmington Customs Port of Entry  
   Whereas, by an Act of Congress approved June 18, 1934, an Act "To provide 
for the establishment, operation, and maintenance 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 Delaware Development Office on behalf of the State of 
Delaware, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone No. 99, Wilmington, has made 
application (filed October 17, 1983, Docket No. 38-83, 48 FR 49084) in due 
and proper form to the Board for authority to establish a special-purpose 
subzone at Chrysler Corporation's automobile manufacturing plant in Newark, 
Delaware, adjacent to the Wilmington Customs port of entry; 
   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 October 17, 1983,
the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone at Chrysler's 
Newark, Delaware, auto plant, designated on the records of the Board as 
Foreign-Trade Subzone No. 99B 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:  
   Activation 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 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 or his delegate at Washington, D.C. this 3rd day of July 1984 
pursuant to Order of the Board.  

   Dated: July 3, 1984. 
Foreign-Trade Zones Board.

   Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Trade Administration, Chairman, 
Committee of Alternate.
