Resolution and Order Approving the Application of the City of Albuquerque, 
NM, for a Foreign-Trade Zone and a Special-Purpose Subzone in Albuquerque  
 
TEXT: Proceeding of the Foreign-Trade Zones Board, Washington, D.C.  
 
 
Resolution and Order 
 
   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 City of Albuquerque, New 
Mexico, filed with the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) on January 30,
1984, requesting a grant of authority for establishing, operating, and 
maintaining a general-purpose foreign-trade zone in Albuquerque, and a 
special-purpose subzone for Summa Medical Corporation primarily for export 
operations, within the Albuquerque 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. 
 
   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 Section 
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 general-purpose zone, and any manufacturing other than 
for export within the subzone. 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 To Establish, Operate, and Maintain a Foreign-Trade Zone and Subzone
in Albuquerque, NM 
 
   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 City of Albuquerque, New Mexico (the Grantee) has made 
application (filed January 30, 1984, Docket No. 3-84, 49 FR 5980) in due 
and proper form to the Board, requesting the establishment, operation, and 
maintenance of a general-purpose foreign-trade zone in Albuquerque, and a 
special-purpose subzone for Summa Medical Corporation primarily for export 
operations, within the Albuquerque 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 (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. 110 and Subzone No. 
110A at the locations mentioned above and more particularly described on 
the maps and drawings accompanying the applications 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 and any manufacturing other than for export within
the subzone.  

   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 30th day of 
October 1984 pursuant to Order of the Board. 

Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
