a special-purpose subzone at the cannery of Dole Processed Food Company in 
Honolulu, Hawaii, within the Honolulu 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 and that there are special circumstances
in this case relating to the industry involved and its location; 
   Now, Therefore, in accordance with the application filed October 2, 
1984, the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone at Dole's 
cannery in Honolulu, designated on the records of the Board as Foreign-
Trade Subzone No. 9C, 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 is 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, DC this 26th day of July
