Resolution and Order Approving the Application of the County of Jefferson, 
NY, for a Foreign-Trade Zone and a Special-Purpose Subzone; Resolution and 
Order  
 
TEXT: 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 applications of the County of Jefferson, New 
York, filed with the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) on January 4, 
and February 10, 1984, requesting a grant of authority for establishing, 
operating, and maintaining a general-purpose foreign-trade zone in 
Jefferson County, and a special-purpose subzone for the manufacturing 
plant of New York Air Brake Company in Watertown, New York, adjacent to the 
Alexandria Bay 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 proposals are in the public 
interest, approves the applications. 
 
   As the proposals involve 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 proposals, 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 general-purpose 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.  
 
 
Foreign-Trade Zones Board, Washington, D.C. 
 
 
Grant To Establish, Operate, and Maintain a Foreign-Trade Zone and Subzone
in Jefferson County, New York 
 
   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 County of Jefferson, New York (the Grantee) has made 
applications (filed January 4 and February 10, 1984, Docket Nos. 2 and 
4-84, 49 FR 1260 and 6395) in due and proper form to the Board, requesting
the establishment, operation, and maintenance of a general-purpose 
foreign-trade zone in Jefferson County, New York, and a special-purpose 
subzone for the manufacturing plant of New York Air Brake Company, 
Watertown, New York, adjacent to the Alexandria Bay Customs port of entry;
 
   Whereas, notice of said applications have 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 (15 CFR Part 400) are satisfied; 
 
   Now, therefore, the Board hereby grants to the Grantee the privilege of 
establishing, operating, and maintaining a foreign-trade zone and subzone, 
designated on the records of the Board as Zone No. 109 and Subzone No. 
109A at the locations mentioned above and more particularly described on 
the maps and drawings accompanying the application in Exhibits IX and X, 
subject to the provisions, conditions, 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 foreign-trade zone and subzone shall be commenced by 
the Grantee within a reasonable time from the date of issuance of the 
grant, and prior thereto the Grantee shall obtain all necessary permits 
from Federal, State, and municipal authorities. 
 
   The Grantee shall allow officers and employees of the United States 
free and unrestricted access to and throughout the foreign-trade zone and 
subzone sites in the performance of their official duties. 
 
   The Grantee shall notify the Executive Secretary of the Board for 
approval prior to the commencement of any manufacturing operations within 
the general-purpose zone.  

   The grant shall not be construed to relieve the Grantee from liability 
for injury or damage to the person or property of others occasioned by the 
construction, operation, or maintenance of said zone or 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 the Army District 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 5th day of 
November 1984 pursuant to Order of the Board.
